Jardin Majorelle - Review
Like an oasis is to a dessert, this garden is a big relief in middle of the rhythmic chaos of Marrakesh. It took Jacques Majorelle 40 years to create this passionate symbol of love and symbiotic co-existence. And oh what a marvelous job he did! Adopted by the uber glamorous Yves Saint Laurent who gave it a fresh lease of life and converted it into a crowd-pulling, awe-inspiring abode of love.
A number of birds dance hypnotically around the rare trees and shrubs of Jardin Majorelle. Fountains laugh gloriously and the multicolored bougainvillea enchants the wearied soul. Bamboo thickets give this garden lovely shades of green and the lush flora whisper tales of legendary lovers.
One can head to the Berber museum which is a part of this 2-acre haven, designed by Paul Sinoir, to witness the personal collection of paintings and artifacts of Pierre Berge and Yves Saint Laurent.
Since it’s a popular sight in Marrakech, it often gets crowded by enthralled tourists but even the crowds don’t take away from the tranquility of this heaven on earth.

Jardin Majorelle, Marrakesh Reviews
Absolutely beautiful. Go early (before 9am) and you get to skip the massive queue that starts forming from then. Plus your photos will look far more amazing without the venue being crammed with other tourists. We went at 8.30 and it was perfect! 70MAD to enter and well worth it!
It's a five star place with a price to match! A beautiful hotel and grounds that are a must see if only for a visit. Steeped in history and opulence. My only issue was waiting over 15 minutes at the garden eating area only to have to get up and get my own menus and then still not get served so we gave up waiting! Saved ourselves a small fortune because it is not a cheap place to eat or drink.
Amazing place to visit!! The garden is incredible and attention has been paid down to the last detail!! Everything is clean and well taken care of!! You can also enjoy a cup of coffee/tea in the cafe that is situated in the same property. An incredible exhibition with Berberic clothes and items is also housed in the garden but you have to pay an extra ticket to visit it. But it is so worth it!!
Prepare for a queue here. The place can get packed. I think it’s better to go there in the morning. The garden itself is beautiful and could be relaxing. “Could be” because the crowd will probably not help with relaxation. Don’t forget to get some ice cream in the cafe!
Beautiful garden. Nicely shaded area to escape from the hustle and bustle (and heat) of Marrakech. Would recommend getting there early. As others have mentioned, the queue to purchase tickets can get long and hard especially standing in the heat. There is a small quaint cafe and washroom facilities. Access to Berber and YSL museum need to be purchased in addition to garden if you're interested in it. If you're just visiting the garden, I'd say you could spend an hour there at most. I wouldn't go back again, but I'd recommend it to others who haven't been.
