Garden Of The Groves, Freeport Reviews
Visited this place as part of an excursion from our cruise ship. The place is beautiful and has a decent restaurant and bar. Unfortunately, after touring the gardens it's quite obvious that the place is greatly in need of maintenance. Most areas are terribly overgrown and all but one waterfall are no longer operable. As beautiful as the place is, it could've been far nicer if it had been maintained over the years.
Very tranquil and luscious greenery all around. A good mixture of Wildlife and the grounds are very well maintained. Was a wonderful visit thru mother nature.
The Garden of the Grove is definitely worth a visit on your trip. A variety of paths meander through the gardens and include a variety of trees and flowers, sculptures, grottoes, a chapel, and waterfalls. There are a number of waterfowl to see too. If you have kids there is a picnic area and playground to enjoy. We also got some great local tips from the owner. We visited in the off season and nothing was in bloom, but we still enjoyed our visit. I imagine the gardens must be spectacular in the Spring.
Lovely outdoor eating and lovely gardens to enjoy after lunch. Location was selected by our Jeep Adventure tour guide. Sammy, our guide, made a good choice.
Food was excellent! Portion size was amazing. Ambiance great. Helpful friendly staff. 11/10. Will come again
