Super chill location that is perfect for some down time while on vacation. It will take about 1.0 to 1.5 hours to walk the garden. The restaurant that is on premise is a perfect place to wrap up the garden with some excellent food and some amazing rum drinks. Glad we added this to our tour.
After a long bike to the garden, I didn’t get to explore every corner of it. But I mainly lost interest after noticing that the garden needed to be well kept and cleaned up. I was hoping to see many different plans and flowers but didn’t get lucky. Bushes and trees needed trimming. The children playground needed attentions and definitely replaced if not painted. I was simply disappointed…. It looked abandoned. The only place that looked decent was the restaurants where most tourists hung out. Other then that I was not impressed…. I hope they put to use the $17 fee. I didn’t take any fotos of the areas that needed attention since I was so tired from pedaling over 3 hours. And there was not much that captivated my attention. Beside the restaurant area, the church and labyrinth!
Our guide was AMAZING. I wish I could remember her name. She was so genuine and welcoming, and the gardens were really beautiful. After the initial tour we got to wander on our own and explore and there were so many things to discover. It was really fun and the local flora and fauna were beautiful.
Enjoyed this as a part of a cruise excursion, but wish we had come just here so that we could have spent more time. The grounds are lovely and we had a guided tour by Marilyn, who was wonderful. Even the food and drinks at the cafe were of a much higher standard than I would expect from a smaller botanical garden. The vendors in the shops were also so fun and helpful. Definitely see Leslie and his art if you can!
This is a pretty little garden. It is old and a little overgrown in a few places. The map was hard to read but we did see some pretty plants and flowers. The price was fair, they need money to keep it going. Maybe they will get some donations to help. Going I August was very HOT, make sure to wear sun screen and take water.
