“Faded elegance”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 29, 2012

Jardin Borda is not particularly well-kept, but it's a charming garden criss-crossed with tree-arched walkways, worth a visit. The art galleries feature some of Cuernavaca's finest exhibitions.

“Nice”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 10, 2012

It was nice, but the walls needed a bit of paint and a bit of an 'updo'. It is how it is supposed to look, I know, it just wasn't my cup of tea but would be to other people I think.

“Nice, relaxing.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 2, 2012

Nice, relaxing gardens but not a big deal. However if you go, take a book or a snack, there are very pretty corners to sit in peace and read or even tables and chairs to make a small picnic.

“Slightly dishevelled and cracking up at the seams”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 30, 2012

Slightly dishevelled and cracking up at the seams, A lot more work needs to be done, although it is quaint and a feels like a forgotten garden
