Lovers of flowers, waterfalls, nature and birds.. This Botanical Garden puts you mind at ease and relaxation with nature.. This was really lovely. Everything is labeled, so you learn a lot walking through. There are many spaces for relaxing, and there are areas for kids to play. I especially loved the lily pad pools, and the tree house made out of fallen trees from Hurricane Sandy.

It was peaceful and well-organized and well-groomed and definitely a wonderful way to spend a warm late-summer afternoon.

Beautiful place, well managed, colorful tropical garden and waterfalls. Beautiful red and pink ginger lilies, iris lilies etc. Good guides!

Great views to Ocho Rios.

At least in October, it was very hot and humid, but also very peaceful (was the only quest).

It was very picturesque. so many trees flowers, water falls,and high up overlooking Ocho Rios. The guide was great since we went along little paths and he'd explain things to us, and took pictures of us when we asked... just a very beautiful place. Glad we went .

GOOD- it was raining off and on when we were there so that did take away from the tour. Because of the rain it was extra humid. Hey, this is Jamaica, it is green because it rains. Was here in the early 90's and in the last 20 years things have changed. Hurricanes can do that. My favorite banyan tree was damaged. I enjoyed the walk down the mountain side seeing the gardens. Tour guide was good (of course you tip them, how else can they make a living) and pointed out many different plants. Liked the stream and waterfall. The history of the place is very interesting.
ANNOYING- it could use a serious upkeep. Clean it up and it would make for better experience
UGLY-none
WOULD I GO BACK- if I extra time, probably. Would not go out of my way if I other stuff to do.
