The self guided tour is worthless, unfortunately they did not emphasize on the historical buildings on the property. The plants are not marked well and there is no map or a pamphlet that describes what to look for.

We were expecting a more scientific tour but were very pleasantly surprised with the guided walk around the grounds. Our guide was very informative with the nicknames of the plants, which is what we'll remember. You could tell he loved the island. The gift shop was small but I was able to find a few gifts. I'd definitely go again.

A self-guided garden accomplished with a nice map that is numbered and describes each area displayed. Many floral, trees, ruins and lovely grounds. A great surprise when I peered into one building and found it's ceiling covered in sleeping bats. Kinda cool

This was one of our first stops on our trip and we loved it! The gardens are beautiful, and helpful for our trip to introduce the many types of plants on St. Croix. The staff was very kind and helpful and fun to talk with.

We decided to spend a morning or what we thought would be a short visit to check this place out. It turns out we were here for over two hours. The trees, flowers, shrubs, fauna, butterflies, etc. are never ending; every kind, species and color you can imagine. There are several buildings that are really cool to check out that... More

We visit almost every time on St. Croix. The best time for viewing the flowers is after hurricane season and before thing start to dry out in late spring. The flowering plants are spectacular, the grounds immaculate and conducive to just relaxing and enjoying nature. The self guided "tour" (you follow a pamphlet) is interesting no matter the level of... More

Our afternoon at the botanical garden was a highlight of our stay in St. Croix. Admission is $8 and worth every penny. The garden is surprisingly nice and extensive, with very interesting collections interspersed among ruins of the old sugar plantation. My wife and and I and our two adult sons (ages 21 and 19) all loved the visit.

The Botanical Gardens are a wonderful diversion--an easy walk through several different spaces. This is one of our favorite places on St. Croix; so much that we took out memberships during our month this year. Last night, we attended a special event--a guided walk by moonlight, with the botanist for the gardens. He was extraordinary--incredibly knowledgeable about the gardens and... More

Visited as part of sweenys island tour and it was a great stop. The grounds are beautiful and the combination of plantation history and botanical info made this a great activity. I was very surprised by the diversity of plants and trees. Having a guided tour by Sweeny was very helpful, pointing out different plants and relating them to the... More

The gardens are beautiful and we are so glad that we decided to go. We went early in the day around 9:30am and that left plenty of time for the beach and pool later. There are numerous shady areas so you aren't walking around in the full sun the entire time. We have visited many botanic gardens around the world... More
