Quiet and peaceful spot but felt like it needed a bit of love and attention really. A lot of the garden appeared dried out and in need of watering. Many parts also seemed unruly and in need of tidying up. It would have been the perfect place to buy a cup of coffee or a glass of wine but I... More

A small but nice botanic garden with a museum. Balearic flora, a collection of flora from the Canary Islands and.the most significant flora of Corsica, Sardinian, Sicily, Malta and Crete. Don´t worry about the €8,- entrance fee it´s worth the money.

The Jardi Botanic is a beautiful little place, with plenty of plants and flowers for all to enjoy. Lots of places to sit and soak up the surroundings, all sorts of gardens within, showing what grows around the Med, and locally too.

Most unexpected to find such a good botanical garden in a small town. Very well set out to show off the endemic flora of the Balearic Islands, as well as other 'island' flora and the importance of the economic crops of the island. Beautiful setting with the Serra Tramuntana behind every view.

A lovely and interesting place. What is in flower depends on the time of year, but the pools and cacti make it a pleasant place to sit and linger. Good displays in the museum. Your entrance fee also helps to preserve this special place, so win:win!

If you are in the nice valley of Soller, don't miss to visit the wonderful bonatic garden; exotic plants, cactus of all sorts, magnolias, and on the background you see the big mountains; Very nice visite for some hours.

Visited in October. Unkempt, unloved, unattractive, uninspiring. Every indications of long-term neglect. Not worth the effort, nor the expense. Perhaps it looks a little better in spring?

Welcoming and helpful staff explained the origin of the gardens. A quiet haven with lots of places to sit and contemplate the planting.

I had seen other reviews that were not good but wanted to support a locally run attraction. This garden was good a long time ago as you can see the layout is good but the plants have not been looked after and lots dead. The lady said they need water, but I would be very surprised if this revives them.... More

Have visited much better gardens than this one. Some fruit trees, a couple of ponds and a lot of dried up vegetation.....not worth the effort or the entry fees.
