“So pretty!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2008

Lovely, tranquil tropical gardens, with interesting colored waterfall and steaming mineral baths. The gardens are fairly extensive and include educational exhibits, lists of birds seen in the area, etc. Well worth a visit.

“Beautiful”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 18, 2007

The gardens are very beautiful. You don't need a tour guide because there are signs all over about every plant.

“Very pretty”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 7, 2007

Recently went to the Botanical Gardens on part of an island tour that I had done while on a cruise ship.

It was very pretty and nice to just walk through. You could see all different kinds of tropical plants and hear the sounds of running water from the waterfall. This is a nice place to stroll through if you have the time while visiting St. Lucia.

“Very Nice”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 19, 2006

I loved the Diamond Botanical Gardens. I was impressed with the variety of tropical plants. The waterfall at the end was also quite pretty. We went with a tour and requested a guide. You don't have to have a formal tour of the gardens, but I would suggest it. Our guide was Alexander (he called himself Alexander the Great). He was a certified expert on tropical plants and had an entertaining style of presentation. Entry into the Garden costs $4 (US) a person. The guides are not paid, so you need to give them a tip at the end of the tour. It takes about 45 minutes. Bring bug spray if (like me) you are the type who gets bitten.

“botancial”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 20, 2005

I think the botancial is a wonderful natural bathing experience, its in a wonderful natural location, beautiful scenery for tourists and local alike, it doesnt cost much and you can relax and take in the scenery without being rushed or pushed on by tour guides, really enjoyable, a must for visitors.
