Visited twice as we were so overwhelmed by our first visit.Peaceful, beautiful gardens- a true labour of love with incredible landscapes and vistas.. So many places to sit awhile allowing the piped classical music ( we were given a choice by Anthony Hunte ) to wash over you. Warmly welcomed both times by Anthony Hunte who was genuinely interested in... More

A feeling of being in paradise, the smells of the plants, the sound of the birds. Beautiful. Staff are friendly and helpful.

Hunte's Gardens is an amazing place! When we arrived it looked like it was going to rain -- and there were plenty of umbrellas available! In the end it did not rain at all... If you are really interested in gardens, I would say you could spend a whole day there. There are so many details, so many kinds of... More

I went with my friends (group of boys) after seeing it on trip advisor. It's not free (30 Barbadian dollars) but well worth it, easily one of the most beautiful places I've ever been. Mr Hunte himself is on hand to answer any questions. Just follow the red and white signs and they will guide you there

Absolutely loved it here. So peaceful. The landscaping is impressive. I had my 2 young children with me and they too enjoyed running about the gardens and seeing the variety of plant life and discovering tadpoles, millipedes, fish. We were warmly welcomed into the owner's home and offered ice cold water. The children were spoilt by Anthony when he offered... More

Wonderfully lush and interesting compact tropical garden in a natural rock basin. Very good host in Anthony, only sorry we couldn't stay longer to sample the refreshments on offer. As previously mentioned the price is a little steep along with everything else we came across on the tourist trail in Barbados unfortunately. Well worth a visit though once you find... More

Piped classical music serenades your walk though this lovely garden. Seating throughout shaded and sunny. One of the best gardens. Meet Mr Hunte after for a chat and drink also has some great pottery for sale amongst other things. Well sign posted so pretty easy to find.
