  • Loved this place! Room to wander, great lunch and drinks . Certainly a local spot worth visiting. Be warned ,the gift shop vendors are something else, but don't be intimated or afraid to barter and you can get some good stuff
  • Nice place too see different plants and flowers. Of the Caribbean. They also have many bird species in the area. Very relaxing place.
  • So beautiful with many exotic flora and fauna I've never seen before. Try the meditation area for solace or get lost in discovery
  • Vacation, loved this we did a package deal this was added in to our ATV tour. Very small but pretty. Had some nice gift shops some that you can find any place on island one local artist and one shop sold nothing but things made on this island. You can have some lunch here or a drink. Will take about 2 hours to do
  • Lovely gardens with flowers and water features. Delicious foods at reasonable prices at the cafe for a unique alfresco meal. Very peaceful.
