We took the round city tour bus (48hrs for E13 with free park admittance) and visited here on our second day. What a magical place offering a feeling of peaceful tranquility. The staff are lovely and very knowledgeable. The beautiful butterflies and little birds were a pleasure to see and the little wallaby was shy and very sweet. The resident... More

Lots of butterflies with the added bonus of the resident wallaby. Interesting building. Nice small cafe. We got there using the City Sightseeing bus which gave us free entry. The bus is €12 each for a 48 hour ticket so definitely worth it. The bus only goes there at certain time so check that, they give you a ticket for... More

Only a few € entry, loads of butterflies in a huge tropical greenhouse building. Big gift shop that was reasonably priced, taxi from torremelinos was €15 and we got bus back down to sea front and walked back, views from car park were lovely and the big Buddhist temple is just next door definitely worth a visit

People are very helpful. the lady in the cafe does the best coffee we have had so far but nothing gluten free :( Make sure you find... More

Close to the Buddhist temple so makes a good combined visit. A wonderful variety of plants, butterflies and lizards. A great morning or afternoon and also perfect for relaxing.

Lovely place, really nice seeing the life of the butterfly from the caterpillar. Lots of beautiful varieties all around. A tortoise, iguana and wallaby too! 10euros per adult. A little pricey but not extortionate. Though it's not a massive place really. I'd say worth a visit :)

This place has a fantastic collection of butterflies with fly around you as you walk around the enclosed garden. Loads of information and helpful talks explaining the process from caterpillar to butterfly. Nice little shop and cafe area.
