This is a relaxing and nice place but I expected a little more, the rose garden was empty nothing to see really there, trees are pretty and the fishes are awesome.

Perfect location for a sunday afternoon stroll away from the hustle of the city and beaches. Beautifully cared for and presented, particularly enjoyed the sensory garden and the medicinal plants collection.
