“Lovely mature garden”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 October 2013

We were told this garden was not as good as that of the governor's residence next door. Wrong. It was far better! Magnificent mature trees including the grandfather of all rubber plants, lots of places to sit and chill and varying (but uniformly huge) bamboos. The formal garden by the palace was a bit disappointing - the Portuguese seem to abandon flower beds at the end of the season but that was all which stopped it being excellent. Right in the front road-side corner we found an open door which we thought might lead to a loo. Instead, it led to the robing room for a small chapel and, with nothing to suggest this was permitted, a curtained opening then gave access to the interior of the chapel itself. Lovely and completely unexpected.

“Beautiful garden associated with the Casa do Jardim B&B”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 August 2013

Large variety of trees and flowers, quite well maintained. Suffers from the comparison with the Garden of Furnas...

“Lovely but slightly unkempt”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 August 2013

Not a bad little palace garden complex off the backstreets of Ponta Delgarda. 3 euros entry. Some nice rubber and eucalyptus trees. Was in need of some tender care - the cactus garden was dying and birds had pooped long ago on some features which had encrusted into fossilised guano.

“Not very well kept”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 August 2013

- too expensive for what you get
- the garden is not very well kept
- you can see this by the old postcards at the entrance
- in the rose gardens are more hydrangeas then roses
