  • Visit to the Spice Garden: interesting and informative. The tour guide was good at explanations though tended often to repeat some of the same things. Good products but perhaps at prices a little high.

  • Apart from the garden as well as explanations of the gentleman who speaks very well for the french, the rest is to escape completely. The small massage (free supposedly!) made by students are to be taken with great caution because saw the head of some people who themselves are left to try, I do not regret not there have died! As for the shop where we wait you like a big pigeon, are not looking to understand, run, run the prices are exorbitant. You will find very much cheaper anywhere else in the country for the same quality.

  • Loved the tour and all the products but especially the vanilla. It is out of this world good and my regret was not buying more. It is very strong so only need half of what you would use in recipes.
  • Very friendly tour around an exhibition garden - showcasing the different spices and the plants they come from. Make no mistake: this is all an elaborate sales pitch, albeit an interesting one. It all ends back to the shop where you get to buy anything you liked at very affordable prices
  • Good spices local made spices
  • Located across the street from the hotel's restaurant is pretty high quality. And display the food easy to understand.
