Hunte’s Gardens was on top of my must do list in Barbados, thanks to researching the reviews of all the various Barbados gardens on this site. Mr. Hunte, a Horticuturist is an elderly gentleman who has created this wonderful garden in a natural sinkhole. I am in absolute awe of what he has achieved in a relatively short time since... More

Hunte's garden contains some beautiful flowers and a lovely lush walk through the greenery of his expansive property. It really is a nice and relaxing way to spend an hour or 2 but the best part of the garden is Hunte himself. If he's around he will greet you at the end and sit and chat w you over some... More

These gardens were fabulous. Like an oasis of quiet and serenity. A huge variety of plants and colourful flowers and the piano classical music being played at the perfect volume, made the whole experience quite magical. Lots of steps, but well worth a visit.

Hunte's Gardens are absolutely breath taking. If I were a bird, I would make my home among the plants and trees of Hunte's Gardens.

Although I personally did not tour the garden I am writing this review as a combination of my father and grandmother's comments. Hunte's Gardens are a serene and calm environment to view a vast array of tropical fauna. The gardens are Anthony Hunte's personal work and he has incorporated his own artistic talent into the creation of his ever expanding... More

We have visited many glorious gardens worldwide but this is the most enchanting. The classical piano music enhanced the experience

This is a must for any visitor to Barbados. It is quite the best garden I have ever seen. It was so good I went back 4 times! A most peaceful and magical experience. Take time to absorb all the sights and sounds.

Anthony Hunte created this tropical garden himself from a sinkhole,and maintains it with only 1 other person-an amazing feat. He is obviously passionate about his garden,and treats visitors like houseguests.I would advise tasting the rum,(which he offered us), after the walk which has some slippery parts and steps! Well worth a visit!

The owner, Anthony is an older English gentleman who loves to talk and visit with his guests. It is a peaceful environment and not expensive to tour and it does not take very long to see everything there, probably 45 minutes to an hour for most people. The rum punch is very reasonable priced at $2.50 USD per drink and... More
