Smaller than i expected but packed full of diverse garden settings, lovely water features. Hot during the day and qute a few bugs around as the afternoon wore on - especially in the bromileade area. It was lovely to see such hard work for the family that started this project not that long ago! I expected something of an older... More

Lots to see; different sections with lots of plants and trees, all labelled. Rainforest enclosure, lovely house and restaurant/bar with lovely balcony to sit and ponder.

This place is wonderful. Learning about the tropical fruit plants and spices was truly enlightening! The fresh fruit smoothies was a refreshing treat and the views, the views, the views...just made me never want to leave this place!

This is a nice garden, however all the fountains were turned off. The restaurant had a nice atmosphere and the food was good. The owner stopped by our table, very friendly. All in all a nice place to visit one of the few bright spots while visiting this horrible island.

Beautiful grounds! Thai restaurant on grounds has amazing food! Try the delish drinks made by their in house expert! During busy season, reservations would be recommended.

Was looking forward to going to the gardens then having lunch at the Asian restaurant, but the restaurant was closed for a few days while we were there. The gardens over all had nice grounds. We saw a couple of monkeys while we were strolling.

I did not have a lot of time to explore the gardens. However, I did get to see most of the grounds. It was pretty. The water gardens were my favorite. The orchid selection was also very nice. I was not thrilled with how the birds were housed. One, it was too small an area for them. I felt they... More

To visit the Botanical Gardens one must take a taxi, rent a car or find a bus that is willing to detour from its main route. This is not so uncommon and was the means by which we arrived. However returning to Charlestown was a more involved excursion. The Botanical gardens themselves occupy a smaller area compared to some we... More

Stunning, beautiful gardens, clearly maintained with pride and passion. We were there in low season and there were more staff than visitors. Even if gardens or gardening are not your thing, this should be a priority on your visit list - the plantation house alone is worth the trip!

From arriving at this beautiful delight place we were over whelmed by the beauty. From start to finish we couldn't fault it. Every where you looked there was something that made you say out loud wow!.
