These gardens are a hidden gem in the heart of the island. Lovingly established and maintained by the owner they are a must visit.

Even if you are not into gardening you cannot fail to be amazed at approx a 60ft wall of different coloured plant life clinging onto the sides of a collapsed cave. Mr Anthony Hunt (75 years young), the owner and creator of this magnificent all year round garden is usually on hand to greet you and can answer all your... More

So glad we made the effort to discover this magical place. Other reviewers have used all the superlatives to describe how special it is. All I can add is that we were there for well over 2 hours, and we wanted to stay forever! Anthony is a very gracious host, we enjoyed tea and cake on his balcony. It is... More

Signs all over the island seem to point to Huntes Gardens , so I feared this would be a commercial place . But no such issues , instead a personally run oasis of colour and foliage in the middle of the island . Really quite stunning and well worth the admission cost. Enjoy ! Sam and Gill

My wife and I had 2/3 hours tour around these gardens that are absolutely gorgeous. The colourful flowers were almost a Monet painting and the number of beautiful birds was a delight. The gardens are so easy to find with signs all around Barbados. The rum punch and a chat with Anthony Hunte afterwards made the tour even more enjoyable.... More

As others have said, try to arrive early when the gardens are quiet and peaceful if you can. Anthony has worked a miracle turning these few acres into remarkable tropical gardens. You can wander at leisure and soak up the atmosphere. The love that has gone into creating these superb gardens is obvious as you wander around. I can also... More

The owner runs the place with the aid of one other person and the result is wonderous, poetic and stunning. They have created an Eden in a garden sense; truly astounding and wonderfully done. Congratulations for the years of hard work it must have taken to make this happen. Will certainly visit again when in Barbados. A 'must do' while... More

Well signposted and a pleasant drive there. We got a great welcome from Anthony Hunte himself on arrival who explained how his garden had come about and the fact that gardens need constant attention. All this he manages with just one other helper to create a tropical paradise of green, lovely hidden paths, statuary and flowers. The house is at... More

If I could visit only one attraction in Barbados, I would come here. It is an artistic triumph for those who enjoy gardens without necessarily needing to be spoon fed. There is an information board and guide these days but i really enjoy just sitting and admiring what Anthony Hunte and his team have created. In some spots you can... More
