“I loved this place!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 12, 2013

This was a beautiful botanical garden! I loved the amazing waterfall and the variety of different plants that were here. We had a great tour guide when we went. The coolest thing at this place was moss that would move when you touch it! Very cool place and very peaceful and beautiful. I highly recommend this place.

“Nice visit- no pressure”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 4, 2013

We were able to visit here as part of our package. Unlike other parts of Jamaica- there was no pressure to buy anything- just enjoy the great views. Our guide was an old gentleman that knew all about the garden and waterfall. His knowledge about the history and the plants was good. I really was a nice, easy tour and a pleasure to see. it certainly helped me understand the history of Jamaica

“What a place ! unsurpassed beauty”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 17, 2013

Truely, 'seeing is believing' - located up the hills opposite Ochos Rios are these gardens that were once a hotel. There is an amazing array of plants, trees and the waterfalls. The guide was very knowledgable on the history and the species of different flora here. Superb views

“WHAT A BREATHTAKING VIEW!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 16, 2013

Up here you will have a fantastic and awesome view of the town of Ocho Rios. There are so many beautiful tropical flowers and plants for you to see as you stroll around the Gardens. There are also Waterfalls and Creeks that go through and around the Gardens which are so relaxing. All natural beauty for you to see. They also have a souvenir shop and a place where you can sit, relax and have a drink to cool you off. A must on your trip to Ocho Rios.
