“Course Needs TLC”
Reviewed 13 May 2013

We are avid golfers and understand that resort courses are different from pro/tournament courses. However, this course needs quite a bit of attention and up-keep. The tee boxes and greens are not in good shape. However, the quaint clubhouse, staff and food are very good.

“Small but perfectly formed”
Reviewed 5 May 2013

This museum is tucked away at the edge of the old town - the opposite end from the sea. We went because it was raining (yes bad weather for us in the capital of sun) but the rain did us a favour.

Really enjoyed wandering around the gardens outside and even more enjoyed the museum itself. The water gardens and plants were beautiful and sparse as only bonsai can be.

A peaceful and green place to be - away from the hustle and bustle of the old town and the beach.

If you don't linker you could run run in half an hour - but we spent a couple of hours enjoying the details of the building, the plants, the water and the combinations of shapes and designs.

This is a small museum but really enjoyable in a nice atmosphere. Good price and our children had a very nice time.

“Nice museum in an ordinary park”
Reviewed 24 September 2012

The bonsai museum is cool, but hidden in a quiet park which didn't smell very nice. Maybe in summer holiday time it will be busier, but at the time we visited, nobody was there.

“A hidden gem”
Reviewed 1 August 2012

For plant lovers this visit is a real must, and is easy to find just outside the old part of the city, although parking isn't that easy nearby. I would allow at least half an hour to be able to admire these wonderfully cared for bonzais - many far older than the majority of humans who care for them today!
