  • This botanical garden has nice vegetation and a couple of water falls around a pond. It is one of the nicest places to visit when on the island. The layout makes it pretty easy to walk around. There a...  more »
  • Went to the garden of the Groves during activity of jeep. We ate some burgers and fries and it was relatively good. The garden is nothing exceptional and stayed for barely an hour.

  • Very tranquil and luscious greenery all around. A good mixture of Wildlife and the grounds are very well maintained. Was a wonderful visit thru mother nature.
  • Lovely outdoor eating and lovely gardens to enjoy after lunch. Location was selected by our Jeep Adventure tour guide. Sammy, our guide, made a good choice.
  • Food was excellent! Portion size was amazing. Ambiance great. Helpful friendly staff. 11/10. Will come again
  • The Garden of the Grove is definitely worth a visit on your trip. A variety of paths meander through the gardens and include a variety of trees and flowers, sculptures, grottoes, a chapel, and waterfalls. There are a number of waterfowl to see too. If you have kids there is a picnic area and playground to enjoy. We also got some great local tips from the owner. We visited in the off season and nothing was in bloom, but we still enjoyed our visit. I imagine the gardens must be spectacular in the Spring.
  • Absolutely our favorite place we visited. Princess Cays was beautiful but the garden tour by our guide Katrina was awesome!
