The gardens were a disappointment and lacked TLC looked as if they need a lot of money and water. The beautiful shrubs on the roadside looked so much better than those inside the gardens. Such a pity. The Natural Museum was lovely however.

Beautiful drive to get to these gardens. What a lovely place to visit. It was romantic, beautiful and very enjoyable. There were various settings and wonderful orange and lemon trees. I cannot remember the cost, but it was minimal and we spent 2 hours there. We even saw a hummingbird that I was afraid of because I thought it was... More

Solely does a fantastic job of conserving the natural flora of Mallorca and the other Balearics, the gardens are just the tip of the iceberg. The gardens are beautiful and well worth a visit.

Lovely gardens...worth the walk from centre of Soller. I got great photos ...especially of frogs on lilly pads. You get a great sense of the situation with the mountains surrounding the gardens

This garden has the wonderful backdrop of the Majorcan mountains. It is fascinating for plant lovers with the plants grouped according to their country of origin and each area is well designed. Plants were mostly labelled and we spent an enjoyable 2 hours working our way around each area. The shop shows an interesting film about the history of the... More

For a newish botanical garden you'll be surprised by its maturity. Set out in rooms which reflect themes. Shady on a hot day - cafe and museum too.

On our fifth year of visiting the Island we purposefully visited the gardens in late April when they were bursting into life with both native and exotic plants. Set out as as series of rooms, the water features were especially well presented with dragonflys and native bees already busy. Access to the site from the main road is excellent, the... More

A wide range of native plant species. I visited in September so most of the flowers had disappeared, but I am sure it is quite spectacular in the spring.

Situated a short and pleasant walk away on the edge of town. It's not huge, and there are no hot houses etc, but what is there is a good mix of plants that are indigenous to this part of the world. Worth the detour.
