Not a very large site but very interesting for both the flora and the fauna. Lots of birds probably the best spot on the island for wooded sites. Also the restauarant was very good.

if you like plants, flowers and wildlife on the tropical and somewhat rare side, you have to visit here when you come to Freeport. We took a paid tour of Freeport and the "garden of the Groves" was included. We spent 2 hours here with a guide...it was wonderful. My wife and I love plants and such and we enjoyed... More

The tour bus stopped here but the visit was too short. It's beautiful. DONT TAKE THE "COMPLETE CITY TOUR" it's absolutely absurd!!! They stop at the Bazar which is in the Discription but guess what??? It's ABANDONED!!!!! Every shop has shut down so they stop at the liquor store and perfume shop!! A joke!!!

We visited this site as part of a tour package. Our guide was very entertaining and she seemed to know her stuff. It was very hot during our July visit, even though we stopped there in the morning. But we saw some beautiful waterfalls, lots of green plants and some interesting animals. The trails were easy to follow and our... More

We stopped here on our way back from visiting the Lucayan National Park and Gold Rock Beach, because we happened to see the sign as we were driving back to the resort. We pulled in to check it out and after debating whether to pay the roughly forty dollars it would cost for our family of four to go in,... More

We stopped here on a jeep adventure. The sights were nice and the animals were fun to see. This is pretty small, but there is plenty to see our just sit around and enjoy the serenity.

Looking at the pictures I thought there would be lots of flowers and some different types of birds. It is a small garden that has some jungle type plants and a few paths. The cafe isn't anything special It was a $30 cab ride from Lucaya and $17 a person. You could walk around for 1 hour at the most.

Garden of the groves was very beautiful, although incredibly hot in the summer months. Go in the morning when it is cooler, and before all the tour buses arrive. Worth the short trip to see.

Nice little garden, but wasn't overly enthralling. Visited as part of another tour but took the time to have lunch and loved the free WIFI in the gardens
