“Beautiful.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 10, 2012

An amazing place to visit, We were quite taken aback by what had been achieved here, even though we had been recommended to visit by friends who visit each year. If you love gardens and even if you don't it is well worth a visit.

“Best Flying Fish on de Island”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 4, 2012

Lovely place to visit, the ladies who work there are so friendly. Stay and have a meal in the Hibiscus cafe and you MUST try the Flying Fish along with a Banks beer!! We go at least once each visit to de island :-]

“Incredibly Serene”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 2, 2012

Absolutely loved wandering through Andromeda, even though we took an 'extra scenic' route. The lovely ladies who work there will remember us from that statement! ;-)

That being said, for sure if you are unable to manage walking up and down hills on uneven terrain, this is not for you. You must watch your step, even when it hasn't recently rained as there is a lot of moisture in the air and the walkway paths can be slippery.

This is a beautiful part of Barbados and the gardens are just stunning. There are plenty of little spots to just sit and relax peacefully and the foliage is beyond beautiful. This is a spot that those who love tropical rainforest gardens would DREAM to have as their backyard!

The gift shop is also lovely, with many beautiful things to buy that are mostly locally made and very reasonably priced. They also were one of the few places that I managed to find vintage style maps of Barbados and the West Indies that will be beautiful framed and on my wall.

All in all, this is a must see attraction for the nature lover in you!
