  • Absolutely recomend these gardens to locals and tourists alike! its a lovely trip out from the resort with some fascinating scenery and plant life. It has a pretty large local shopping mall over the road from it witch i recommend taking a visit to while your there. Overall we spent 2-3 hours in here taking photos and being amazed by the different species of trees that where huge and looked like they where 1000's of years old! worth every penny. While on the subject is was only 2 euro to visit too!
  • Fantastic entry price. Absolutely beautiful. Vast range of plants. Great for relaxing in especially in the heat as the trees give great shade
  • Beautiful tropical garden, well laid out with plenty of interesting trees and plants, but also for quiet walks or sitting in the shade. Very restful and relaxing and well worth the €3 admission fee.
  • One of the best botanical gardens I have seen so far. It is not big, but it has really interesting plants.
  • Very nice. Even if you are not into botany you can spend over 1 hour here. I was sold on NFC capable tags on trees I could read with my phone and play info (English, German and Spanish). This is only on few places as there are hundreds of plants, but still very nice. Entry fee is 3€.
