What a lovely display of tropical flowers and trees. A gentle walk .between the vegetation with many items identified.. A beautiful waterfall and even a crab with first class camouflage. An old narrow canal and mineral baths added to the enjoyment. Well worth a visit.

The gardens are beautiful. Our guide was called. The walking Internet. So ask for him if u go. the waterfall is beautiful as well. Then u get to go in the mineral bath at the end. Which is awesome and very relaxing. I recommend this if ur on the island.

I liked the Botanical Gardens because it was so much flora to learn about. The Diamond Falls itself is scenic: but for safety reasons patrons are not allowed to get in the water. Overall, it was still a decent place to see.

A bit like a nature trail, this is another visit that can be arranged personally or through a Rep at the hotel. All quite interesting, although the waterfall is not as breathtaking as I had expected. I don't know why .... I wasn't expecting Niagra or Victoria Falls ! Lots of different plants/trees. It is always nice to see cacao... More

My husband and I went on a couples escapade and the botanical gardens was one of the excursions. It was absolutely gorgeous! Our tour guide really took the time to show us each part of the gardens. It was informative,beautiful,and well worth the visit!

The guide was funny but could be a little less intense. The information he provided was great. The flowers were exotic and beautiful. The overall area is small. The people in the stores could've been friendlier. It's worth at least going once but should be a part of other planned excursions.

All and all the visit to the botanical gardens was a good one. The flowers and plant life you'll see there is beautiful and our guide was extremely knowledgeable and informative. My only con is that she rushed through the tour--way too quickly. This could possibly have something to do with the fact she mentioned that the guides "work for... More

This was a very pleasant trip but there really were too many people on organised tours which made it very rushed and felt you were on a cattle herd. Nevertheless worth a visit.
