We visited these gardens on the last day of our recent holiday. We wanted to find something which my 90 year old partially sighted father would enjoy. The gardens are compact, but really beautiful with many pools and fountains. We went in October and the colours were beautiful. A previous reviewer mentioned that it wasn't suitable for older people.

The property is located just before the tunnel that goes to Soller, on the right had side if you come from Palma. Beautiful gardens very well kept, with luxuriant vegetation, palm trees, bamboos, fruit trees (orange, fig, lemon), bougaivilleas, and also some animals not far from the gardens(funny pigs, goats, poultry. The mansion is also worth a visit with its... More

The gardens were a real find. Quiet, peaceful and full of interest. We spent a couple of enjoyable hours there on a hot afternoon. Plenty of other visitors at the time, but the place is big enough to find peace in some spot.

We discovered this from the Rough Guide and it was well worth the trip. The bus from Port de Soller to Palma stops right outside the entrance (1.6E). The gardens themselves are beautiful and a reminder of the Moorish influence on Spain. There's a lovely little cafe serving fresh orange juice (2E) and of course cerveza. Wandering among the palms,... More

My mum and Dad both have walking issues and found the entrance,court yard and house difficult. No hand rails or ramps. They didn't even attempt the garden. I was therefore very disappointed that there was no reduction in price for disabled or elderly folk. My teenage children liked the water feature, and got very wet, which was most welcoming on...

We stopped at the gardens after an early morning flight while on our way to Soller. We felt as if we were all alone and enjoyed fresh-squeezed orange juice and strong coffee while we watched the ducks in the small pond. One of the gardeners turned on the spray fountains for us so that we could experience the arbor mist.

The gardens of Alfabia are not the largest or most spectacular Moorish-style gardens in Spain, but they are one of the best executed. The gardens are quite small, but my wife and I still managed to spend two hours and possibly could have spent longer. We went on a rather hot August day (low to mid-30s Celsius), but as with... More

Yes, it costs a lot compared to other things on the island, but we thought it was worth the money. The gardens are very nice and calm. One can relax and take amazing pictures. We liked our bit of time there. Go in the evening and there won´t be many people.

Don't be put off by the location, just off the main Palma-Soller road by the toll booth. Once you are through the gates, you enter a peaceful estate. The smallish garden has a number of Moorish touches and includes an impressive arbour with water jets (no one can resist pressing the button to make the jets come on). The garden... More

Lush, cool oasis of a garden. Lovely place to visit on a hot day. Small but beautiful and plenty to enjoy. Would return.
