As others have said, try to arrive early when the gardens are quiet and peaceful if you can. Anthony has worked a miracle turning these few acres into remarkable tropical gardens. You can wander at leisure and soak up the atmosphere. The love that has gone into creating these superb gardens is obvious as you wander around. I can also... More

The owner runs the place with the aid of one other person and the result is wonderous, poetic and stunning. They have created an Eden in a garden sense; truly astounding and wonderfully done. Congratulations for the years of hard work it must have taken to make this happen. Will certainly visit again when in Barbados. A 'must do' while... More

Well signposted and a pleasant drive there. We got a great welcome from Anthony Hunte himself on arrival who explained how his garden had come about and the fact that gardens need constant attention. All this he manages with just one other helper to create a tropical paradise of green, lovely hidden paths, statuary and flowers. The house is at... More

If I could visit only one attraction in Barbados, I would come here. It is an artistic triumph for those who enjoy gardens without necessarily needing to be spoon fed. There is an information board and guide these days but i really enjoy just sitting and admiring what Anthony Hunte and his team have created. In some spots you can... More

You are always welcomed by the enthusiastic Anthony who unobtrusively collects your entrance fee as he welcomes you to his home. You plunge down in to the heart of a huge collapsed limestone cave, now totally open to the benign elements. The paths are well made and winding with many side routes to beguile in to the numerous nooks and... More

These gardens are everything a tropical garden should be. There's colour, texture and thoughtful design with some quirky and classical statuary to give focal points. all the planting is beautifully cared for and very healthy. Anthony Hunte is a very welcoming and courteous host. I'm not surprised that it's Number one on TripAdvisor!

Get there early, as we left there, there were quite a few couples with there guides arriving. Beautiful walk around the garden, there are steps here and there. There is also a small 150 year old house you can view. Had some drinks up on a verandah over looking the gardens, Anthony Hunte was there and offered us a sample... More

I have visited many 'open' gardens in many countries and this one of the best. To realise that every plant and tree has been placed individually - but to appear so natural is amazing. The pathways and seating areas at different levels are great for viewing the gardens and also lets you make the descent at your own pace. The... More
