“Very pretty, but a little expensive”
Reviewed 8 November 2013 via mobile

The botanical gardens are very pretty, but $26 for two people to walk around is a little steep. Speaking of steep, the hill you have to drive up to get there is crazy!
They would do well to put up some better signage since it is definitely off the beaten path. I was disappointed in the fruit tree section. The gardeners and staff were friendly though. It was fun talking to the parrot. He likes to say "hello." If it was cheaper (say $10) and easier to get to, I'd be more likely to recommend it.

“Beautiful and Peaceful”
Reviewed 20 October 2013

Friendly staff, beautiful grounds and a very good and inexpensive Thai restaurant located on the grounds. I didn't think I would enjoy it as much as I did. There were very few people there and it was a wonderful location to take pictures.

“Lovely well thought out gardens - shame about the cooking”
Reviewed 8 October 2013

These Botanical Gardens are well worth a visit with exhibits clearly marked and well laid out. The scenery is also fantastic with commanding views over the island. What is a disappointment is the quality of the cooking in the Thai restaurant - in effect the cooking is not very Thai, though the view from the balcony is good.

“Try the restaurant!”

Really great Thai food! Our waiter was Cyrus Rosales. He's awesome! Very nice and had lots of suggestions for what we could do on the island.
