Very good garden worth a visit.

This is a well laid, well presented and interesting garden with lots of interesting plants, flowers and wildlife. We enjoyed it.

This is a really beautiful gardens, with some quite amazing plants. You can use a guide, but we just went on our own and there was lots of information around. Try the spa pools too, great fun.

Went here from the Cruise port. The van ride was about 2.5 hours with many stops for pictures and "shopping" with the roadside vendors. The island is beautiful and some excellent pictures were taken. The Gardens were nice enough, but unless you're really into that type of thing it's just kind of "ok" Now the draw for most people (in... More

Love wandering amongst the many plants, well labeled . Little cafe too. Go to the far end to see the waterfall. Many coloured rocks glisten in the water

If you are into plants then this tour will be good for you. There is an entrance fee and then a fee to use the baths. i was interested in the waterfall and 'mineral baths' but honestly was disappointed. You can not access the waterfall as it is dangerous to do so (but you can view it), and the baths... More

Don't compare this to the large gardens of Europe, but it is worth a visit. It's more jungle then formal gardens. The waterfall is interesting.

Highly recommend this to anyone traveling to St. Lucia! The botanical garden is very interesting.. you see all sorts of trees and plants. I learned that cinnamon grows on a tree! It's tree bark! There are cashew trees, almond trees, vanilla, and all different sorts of flowers. The springs (Three small pools filled with warm mineral water from the volcano)... More

A beautiful botanical garden with superb tour guides. The gardens themselves are well-kept and there are a huge number of interesting flowers and trees to see. The waterfall is also worth the trip and bring your swim gear if you fancy a dip in the mineral baths.

The excursion was advertised as a trip to the hot mineral springs in Soufriere, a dormant volcano. The supposed highlight of the tour was to be a visit to the springs where the French officers guarding the island came to rest a while. When we got there the "springs" were three square pools about 8ft x 8ft, quite a dissapointment... More
