One of the most Incredible gardens I’ve ever been to. Extremely knowledgeable staff, even the visitor service ladies knew plants. Gorgeous gardens, friendly welcoming staff, great educational tours, and a fantastic cafe.

Beautiful place to visit in Naples
Sep 2021 • Business
I was near the area showing homes to my buyers and decided to take my first trip to Naples Botanical Gardens since relocating to the area. I didn't realize how big it really was. Unfortunately I got there a few hours prior to closing but look forward to coming back with my family. I am sure my kids will have the best time. This place is truly beautiful and as asset to Naples and Southwest Florida.

The mosquitoes were an unexpected surprise.
Jun 2021
I like visiting gardens when I travel. I used to manage a garden center in San Diego, took care of indoor plants at a major mall in Minnesota, and taught edible wild plants classes at a community school in Minnesota, so I love plants.
I already visited a few gardens on this trip, and given the reviews and what I saw online, I was eagerly anticipating this garden.
But the reality turned out different from what I expected. We got there about 8:30 a.m., and saw someone in the ticket kiosk, but was informed that only members can visit from 8:00 to 9:00 a.m., and the general public is allowed in at 9:00. Fair enough. The stroll up to the window was a generous display of tropical and sub-tropical plants, so that was wonderful for me. I was all ready to return at 9:00. It looked exciting from a "plant person's" perspective.

And then my arms and face started to itch and I got large welts from the mosquito bites. I hadn't seen mosquitoes until we were heading back to the car. I was in misery. I rubbed cortisone cream on them. It sort of helped. Yet, I itched off and on for about a week from the bites, not to mention the worry of possible tropical diseases.
I am not oblivious to mosquitoes. I grew up in Minnesota. So my wife and I went out to get some DEET product, but could only find a "natural" mosquito control in the surrounding area, which it turned out I was allergic to the smell of.
We had the time to go back, but by this time, without the DEET product, I balked at returning. I did not feel like getting "chewed up" by mosquitoes again, no matter how good the garden was. If the entrance was any indicator, it looked like a great garden. So, call me disappointed. I wanted to see the garden, but not at the cost of feeding mosquitoes. So, if you go, bring a good mosquito spray. Then it might be a pleasant experience for you.

Closed most of the time
Jul 2021 • Friends
Gardens are only open until 2pm but they charge admission for a full day. At mid day we were required to leave.
A friend is a member but complains that is virtually impossible to get there due to the early mid day closing.
These Gardens are only open 5 hours a day and closed 19 hours a day. They still expect full admission price to be paid for both non-members and members. It is hard to get to the Gardens with such little time they are open.

Waste of time and money

Went for the day and left in one hour. Poor to non existent signage left us walking in circles and not knowing what we were looking at.

Stunning and informative (and delicious) tropical garden
Jul 2021
Bring your walking shoes, there is a lot to see and it’s so gorgeous you won’t want to miss any of it. There are a few garden areas that feature plants from different tropical areas. We learned that The Naples Botanical Gardens work to help preserve endangered plants from around the world so besides gaining access for the day, we felt that our entrance fee helped in a small way to allow the gardens to do that important work. There were so many rare plants and the ability to text a question to one of the resident gardeners, which really gave us a deeper dive into learning a little about what we were seeing. More than once as we passed someone working, we were given a tip about what not to miss. One gal simply said “look up” and made our whole visit! The tree we were walking under was in bloom with ridiculously gorgeous coral blooms so big that they almost looked fake; we would have missed it had she not taken a moment to assure we didn’t. The orchid garden is alone worth the price of admission, make sure you save time to truly enjoy it. I’d be remiss if I didn’t mention the Fogg Cafe. We purchased a membership as much for the ability to go enjoy the cafe again and again as for the gardens!

Beautiful tropical gardens

Incredible tropical gardens, beautiful and well-maintained.. We liked it so much that we bought memberships. Restaurant is decent now, it was better in pre-pandemic times. Recommended.

Lovely stroll through nature!
Jul 2021
It's a pricey entrance fee ($20 for an adult) but I spent two hours walking through nature. It's a beautiful series of gardens but in summertime it's HOT. Bring water with you!

Beautiful
Jun 2021
Even if you are not into gardening, this place is absolutely stunning! The grounds are immaculate and very well laid out. The walkways are stunning.
We went early in the morning, but it was hot and humid. I think if you are here in the Winter, you could easily spend the entire day. It's very peaceful and quiet. Most of the plants are labeled, so you know what you are looking at. There are great sections: Japanese gardens, native Florida, water, succulents.
