This is a fabulous place to visit - so much to see and with a great guide to get to hear about all the different species and how it all came together. We thoroughly enjoyed this visit and can recommend it as part of an overall trip around the island.

We spend a nice couple of hours wandering through the gardens, culminating at the mineral baths. We opted for the private baths, but to be honest the public baths looked perfectly nice. The falls are pretty but not overwhelmingly so, unfortunately the signage prohibits actually getting into the falls so looking at them will have to do. Would visit again.

Our daughter had her wedding pictures done here by Dani Deveaux. Absolutely breathtaking! Amazing variety of flowers and trees. Baths are great, clean and you feel 10 years younger after a nice soak.

Best time to go is in the morning as you miss all the other trips from other hotels. Remember to bring a towel, something to swim in and a bottle of water for after the swim. When you arrive be aware you will be set upon by greasy hawkers of tat trying to get you to by a necklace. Just... More

We did this without a tour guide and we were glad that we did. The Gardens in itself is very beautiful and well laid out and definitely offered me many photo opportunities. Not word a guided tour in my opinion

We visited here as part of a full day tour. We were told upon entering the gardens that our tour guide, Marilyn, isn't paid, so we were expected to pay her. She was knowledgeable and the plants are beautiful, but she spoke and moved too fast for us to really enjoy what we were being told. It was also difficult... More

We had an awesome tour guide. (They work on tips, she made that very clear to us but after her tour we were more than happy to do so) she explained everything to us and gave us several names for each plant and how they work in their environment. Also what likes them and what does not and what harms... More
