“Peaceful”
Reviewed March 1, 2014 via mobile

Well maintained but not all trees were labelled. It was very peaceful and mainly flat so a nice stroll for the less able and some magnificent trees like the Brazil nut.

“Botanical Gardens”
Reviewed February 12, 2014

Very peaceful and quiet. Some excellent trees there. The local guide who latched on to us was very knowleagable about the history of the gardens.

“Underwhelming”
Reviewed January 29, 2014

Peaceful, and well-kept, but you'll learn nothing about anything in there - almost no signage - and you can see better flora just by going almost anywhere around the island.

“Lots of Trees”
Reviewed January 21, 2014

As the description says, there are many trees. Not as many flowers when we were there. Well kept and cool place for a stroll. No fee to enter.

“a beautiful, serene, expansive garden”
Reviewed January 6, 2014

I love the trees and the division of the garden into portions, each containing shaded seating as well as seating in the sun.
