  • Andromeda Botanic Gardens was an absolutely wonderful way to spend and afternoon. From the beautiful walk through the gardens, with plaques and an app describing the flora, to the amazing history behind the gardens. Speaking to the team behind these gardens was delightful and finishing it off sitting having a ginger, turmeric lemonade on the deck was the perfect way to spend the afternoon. Well worth the visit.
  • Cool place lots of plant variety they have an app you download to see the plant details as you move along. My favourite part about it is the way you’re allowed to move around and touch the fruits, normally places bar things off but here it is not restricted and however be warned! You can get lost easily!
  • Been here a few times now over the 18 years coming to the Island. Never been disappointed with the results of photography that I take in the garden. Flowers never disappointed and the birds are amazing. Thank you so much. Totally good value for money.
  • Absolutely amazing, tranquil & lush gardens. Every corner you round has a new spectacular view. Loads of interesting facts and tidbits along the route. Well worth a visit if you want to escape the everyday hustle and bustle. The many benches provide excellent resting spots where you can just take in the views. Can easily spend 2 hours there.
  • If you love nature and you are looking to get a general understanding about plants as well as their names and lil tidbits this is definitely the place to go. The atmosphere is magnificent and allows you to enjoy nature with a nice casual walk. Nothing to exerting and they are plenty places to sit and just observe and take it all in. There are so many plant, tree and flower species that aren't native to Barbados but are simply thriving there. I'm sure the former owner would definitely be pleased with the outcome. 10 out of 10 will definitely be back to take it all in again. I didn't get to see the monkeys when I went but that's neither here are there as they are plentiful all around the island.
