“Don't miss it”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 5, 2012

Great experience, very diverse selection of flora. We enjoyed our self-tour immensely. You can really see where food such as dates, oranges, plums, tangerines, coconuts, lemons, and cotton come from. Beautiful tropical gardens.

They have done a good job of labeling the plants, have different types of gardens and they offer tours of various parts of the garden.

“Will stay here again”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 23, 2012

We loved staying here. The staff is amazing. The pool is a bit small, but it makes the kids play together and share. The beach is amazing and the gardens are to die for. Well worth every penny.
