You walk through the entrance into two beautiful gardens. One is exotic plants and the other is more traditional. They are a beautiful spot to relax from the hustle of the city.

This garden is not a secret. At least enough people find it every day. It's a classical Arabian garden. Orange trees needly lined up, a shadowy pavilion in the middel, water running through. Enough benches to sit and recover from a dusty city walk. On...More

It is Worth setting up the sat nav on your phone to guide you through the Médina to the Jardin secret. Tranquil, beautiful and interesting, all with a great terraced cafe a welcome break from the more hectic elements of the Médina.

The story of how these gardens were restored from ruins and completed in only 2016 is amazing. Thank you to those who were inspired and to those who laboured to recreate such a wonderful place. Well worth a visit.

Went here on a whim and really glad we did. Beautifully maintained gardens which weren’t too busy. Had a tea in the cafe which had great service and was reasonable. Definitely would visit again- a welcome break from the bustle of the souls!

This is an Oasis of calm in the midst of the Medina. Gardens have been restored to enhance its origins. Just perfect to sit and soak up the calming surroundings. Costs approx. £4 sterling ( 50 Dhms) . Please don't miss it

we stumbled across this while walking around. thought "why not". it wasn't that expensive to get in, and was a nice haven from the bustle outside. the gardens are well kept and there were lots of people taking instagram photos. there is even free wifi!

This garden is tucked away in the medina. It has nice tile work and lovely trees. There is also a cafe on the terrace but I did't try the food.

Although we never saw any cats in the secret garden, there were loads of Cats in Marrakech, probably not a good place to go if you are that afraid of them.
