“Most interesting and beautiful park”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 May 2014

I found the whole experience like an adventure. We could explore different paths that took us to some where cool. The flowers and trees were beautiful. I really liked the variety and you can tell that they take good care of the plants. We crossed the stepping stones on the "lake" that brought us to really dark underground caves. It was really cool as each path brought us to somewhere different.

They could take better care of the ponds and lakes as the water is really still and looks yucky.

Entrance fee is cheap. Definitely worth a visit.

“Best of the park.. and that is saying something”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 May 2014

While the rest of the park is defined by manmade fortification and elaborate interiors, Quinta is an outdoor experience which mimics a kind of fairytale-esque walk through hidden grottos, and underground streams. We went while it was raining and it was still wonderful. Its not on the main pamphlet for the park and you have to buy entrance separately, but its worth the money and the effort. Really fun or both kids and adults.

“A must for gardeners”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 April 2014

The architectural garden scape was a must see. make sure you have your walking shoes. You may want to take a Tuk Tuk or cab to the sight. Cabs are extremely reasonable.
