Off the tourist route but well worth a visit

Welcoming and helpful staff explained the origin of the gardens. A quiet haven with lots of places to sit and contemplate the planting.

Visited in October. Unkempt, unloved, unattractive, uninspiring. Every indications of long-term neglect. Not worth the effort, nor the expense. Perhaps it looks a little better in spring?

I had seen other reviews that were not good but wanted to support a locally run attraction. This garden was good a long time ago as you can see the layout is good but the plants have not been looked after and lots dead. The lady said they need water, but I would be very surprised if this revives them.... More

Have visited much better gardens than this one. Some fruit trees, a couple of ponds and a lot of dried up vegetation.....not worth the effort or the entry fees.

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!

Dear visitor, you are right when you say that august is the hotest time. Is enough that you look arround the landscpe of the Island. You can see how the vegetation is surviving during the summer: each specie has its own strategies to do that. So, we are a conservation garden, and the plants need to be like in the... More

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.

The garden looked a bit neglected and run down having seen lots of gardens while in Majorca we thought there would be a lot more plants in flower,there were some Bird of Paradise plants but looked but dried even the veg looked like it needed a good...
