We went in September. I would have lived to see the garden in June/July when they would be at their most colourful.

A lovely relatively small botanic gardens that could perhaps use a little tlc but is none the less well worth a visit. The cacti and succulents section was in my opinion the best part part with some quite spectacular specimens. The museum was a nice surprise too with some fine skeletons and shells to look at. I very much enjoyed... More

Beautifully kept garden with endemic flora and interesting species from the Mediterranean area. Great if you want to learn more about local species and habitats. Great staff and conservation work. People thinking that the garden looks sad and dry are probably just not familiar with Mediterranean flora. Well worth a visit!!

Soller Botanic gardens is an amazing and important place - charged not only with providing something for visitors to see, but also with researching and safeguarding plants special for the Balearic islands. It does both of these things, on a shoestring budget and with very little personpower. With recent major cuts in many government-funded institutions, support from the public as... More

A bit tired and said, but it still has it charm, in some sad rundown way. Don't expect too much from it!

I normally enjoy botanic gardens, but thus one was terrible. Dull, scurfy, ill cared for, uninformative signage, and pretty small. Also awkward to access on foot, involving a walk along a very busy fast road. A complete waste of time and 6 euros.

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
