“Wonderful Gardens”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

See my review of Alhambra to see pictures of just how beautiful these gardens are. You don't need to see the palaces to enjoy a visit to Alhambra if you are happy to spend time in the wonderful Generalife gardens. Lots of little rooms to explore and wonderful water features. There are stairs so not easy for prams, wheelchairs or those with mobilitiy issues.

“Gorgeous garden”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 7, 2013

Gardens are just lovely - even in very early spring. Lovely views of the surrounding countryside. Favorite part of Al Hambra visit.

“Nice Walk”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 5, 2013

You can tell the Generalife Gardens are spectacular in the late spring and summer. We were a bit early (March 22nd) but it was still a beautiful place to stroll through.

“enjoyable walk”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 3, 2013

An enjoyable walk made more interesting with a guide to explain some of the history. We visited in March and missed out on the full potential of the gardens. Not much in bloom at this time of year.

“A beautiful walk in the gardens and natural environment”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 1, 2013

We split the tour into a daytime walk at Generalife and Alcazaba, and night time tour to the Palacios.
We believe this is a better way to enjoy the Alhambra, without getting too tired.
The gardens are welcoming even now, when most plants are just beginning to bloom.
The view of the old town from the Generalife palace and gardens is magnificent!
