The publicity promised to show us the variety of plants from the Balearics. I know it was the hottest time, but most of the plants looked dead and I don't think they'll revive when the rain comes. The cactus section had some impressive plants, but 8euros for the experience was pretty steep!

Initially on entrance this place seems like a little oasis between the main road and Soller town. Unfortunately as a visitor attraction it did not deliver. It seemed that once upon a time this had been much more than it is today. The planting and the water features had certainly seen better days. As a keen gardener myself and having... More

We visited here with our family and we did enjoy it. The gardens are about protecting the native plants and helping you prevent extinction of native plants. Due to the dry climate of Mallorca the gardens are quite dry but this reflects the topography they grow in. Would recommend if you have a whole day in Soller to spend but... More

Parking along the main road outside. 8 euros each entrance. Short of flowering plants at this time of year, however the trees in the orchard were nice and we had a lovely peacefull walk round.

When I read the other reviews here I had to double check to make sure we were talking about the same gardens. These gardens are run down and neglected. There were weeds everywhere. Fallen leaves had not been cleared up. Yes it was well signed; but many of the signs indicated a dried up patch of bare earth with no... More

We walked from the centre of Sóller by the cathedral and tram stop with a baby and toddler and it took us about 20 minutes. We arrived and paid a fairly hefty entrance fee for the gardens and linked museum of natural history. However we were really surprised to find there was no cafe/restaurant in the gardens or nearby. The... More

Varied planting and beautifully laid out. Particularly liked the herbs and succulents. Husband Jay is a professional gardener and he loved it. Specialist nursery with good range of plants for sale. Sadly no cafe.
