“Check out the Baths before paying”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 17, 2013

The botanical gardens were very nice, and a little pricey but not terrible. You cannot bath in the waterfall. The mineral baths (additional fee) are basically big cinderblock bathtubs- not very natural feeling at all. Disappointing

“Paradise”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 11, 2013

If you like quiet place, flowers and plants... this is your place. One hour or less is enought to see and enjoy. You could try the mineral baths but it is optional. The fall is not that tall but lovely to see.

“Great experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 11, 2013 via mobile

I went there on a shore excursion with Royal Caribbean. The guides were very knowledgeable of the park. Looking at the waterfalls felt like heaven on Earth. This is also a good place for anyone interested in French history as King Louis xiv had personal interests in the area.

“Pretty waterfall and refreshing dip”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2013

If you have never seen a good size waterfall, this is worth the stop. Having been to Hawaii, this waterfall was decent but not dramatic in comparison. However it is still worth the stop. It makes for a pretty photo opportunity. For a Caribbean Island with a waterfall and bamboo forests, it is probably the closest thing on the East Coast vacation for us without the long flight to Hawaii. It was a bit refreshing when you first enter the swim/dunk area, but felt good to cool off and actually stand under the waterfall. Definitely worth a quick stop!

“Beautiful gardens”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2013

The gardens are definitely worth seeing, and the waterfall is not spectacular (nor swim-able) but too close to miss. I didn't get much out of the mineral bath, that I know of, but it was relaxing. It was a beautiful excursion.
