  • A perfect way to enjoy an afternoon with friends and family. A stunning variety of specimens presented in a low key, tasteful way. I thought the palm grove was especially interesting. Don't miss the cafe for homemade drinks and light snacks in an open air porch, digesting the beauty and variety you just enjoyed. Staff, as so often in Barbados, just incredibly open and engaging. Don't miss it.
  • It was very tranquil, relaxing and refreshing meandering through the lush botanical landscape. It was like following the yellow brick road just that there was no great Wizard in this case either, only butterflies and kingfisher. It was delightful.
  • Such a beautiful place with so many interesting plants and flowers. You also get all the facts about what each plants/flower/tree/palm can be used for. An extra plus for the girl working there, she was extremely friendly so we hung out and talked to her for some time while drinking super good home made lemonade and having really good coffee. After your visit you can easily walk down to Bathsheba and enjoy the beautiful beach there and eat at Seaside Bar which have really good fish.
  • Very nice garden, one with my favorites. Many beautiful plants and a very pleasant collective that works in the garden
  • If you are interested in tropical plants from around the world, and the interesting story of how these gardens started, you should go for a visit. Staff was knowledgeable, friendly and answered questions with true pride for the work they do. Worth the time.
