Lovely gardens, peaceful setting

Far smaller than expected.... some areas still under construction. A beautiful little haven in the midst of no where.

Nothing spectacular about this place except all of the lizards!! Not well maintained and the shop owners are VERY pushy! Plus, there are mean ducks there!

The Groves are beautiful and the history behind it was wonderful.. The tour guide explained the local trees and their medicinal values. Loved this tour.

We stopped of at the Garden of the Groves for an hour as part of an Island Tour by coach. We had a guide, I think her name was Miriam, who gave us an entertaining explanation of what we were viewing. There is an attractive cafe overlooking a lake and waterfalls where you can take lunch if you have time.... More

We planned just to take a quick look but stayed 2,5 hours as the garden is quite beautiful. Lot's of water with turtles and fish, cooling shadows caused through marvellous trees and exzellent description of plants. Nice shops as well. Restaurant located beautiful towards a small lake.

Nice to walk through and explore. Nice staff and great food at the cafe! I would recommend renting a car and driving here yourself as tours are extremely overpriced and limit your time
