Owner description: Rain Forest botanical paradise: the flowers and plants in this garden will take one's breath away, fantastic views from hill top looking out east over the Atlantic and the 'Scotland District of Barbados, benches for resting in secluded shady spots, the peace that one wishes, missing from one's work life is here. Worth more than money, relax and restore the soul...

“Enjoyed !”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2014

This was a beautiful and peaceful place . If you're not a plant lover , than we wouldn't recommend it . If you want to make your wife happy , just go and pretend you like it . We stayed around an hour and a half and saw some beautiful and unique plants . If you love nature and tropical plants , you wont be disappointed . Enjoy ! Dave and Doug

“Surprise!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 18, 2014

My husband and I had a delightful snack at the snack bar before heading off on our adventure into the forest. The flying fish sandwich is awesome! We wandered around the forest for about an hour or so, totally amazed by the size and shape of all the flowers and plants. Well worth hunting this place down if you enjoy plants! We were even surprised to see a monkey when we were leaving!

“Unique plants!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 16, 2014

It was great to see such exotic plants up close....worth the price of admission if you are in the area (this with Harrison's Cave is a nice trip). Bring your camera for great photos of hte plants and beautiful vistas!

“Heaven on Earth”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2014

This place is truly beautiful, and can only be described as Heaven on Earth. Absolute paradise. The gardens are so well kept. The staff are so friendly, and the lunches absolutely delicious. Very cheap, and a recommended day out, not to be missed.

“Beautiful”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 13, 2014

Beautiful flower forest. I would't say there are too many flowers (as I expected). 30-40 minutes walk is enough to walk around and enjoy tropical flowers and trees.
