Hidden Masterpiece
Aug 2020 • Family
We have lived here 20 years & have never heard of this place. We met the owner (& sole gardener) Juan today. He has been open 32 years.
This place is huge. The largest garden of its kind in Europe. We spent 3 hours (curtailed by a huge thunder storm) in the Mallorcan Garden, the desert (v impressive) & the lake. There are bamboo gardens to walk through too & for most of the day we were on our own.
We learnt about plants, habitats & brushed up on Latin.
I reccomend this place wholeheartedly. There is so much love here & the workis phenomenal. All the work of the owner & his dad. Do go, I'm sure you won't regret it.

Unless you have cactus mania...
Nov 2019
At 10.50€ entry fee I would expect more than the rubbishy leaflet which has no information, a silly uninformative map, no signs to orient the visitor. Especially lacking: no labelling of most of the plants. It would be more educational if each were labelled with their names and provenance. As it is there are many cacti but no explanantions anywhere. The lake is artificial but turtles and herons hang out there. If you have time to kill and need to walk your dog (they're permitted, on a leash) its pleasant enough, but it had rained the day before our visit so some of the paths were treacherously muddy and slippery. We were all disappointed, its as if they couldn't be bothered. However, the toilet facilities were very clean.

A good way to spend a few hours
Oct 2019 • Family
Our twenty something plant loving children had wanted to see a typical Majorcan botanical garden...and although we hadn't thought cactus were typical of the island, this one had good reviews in all the guide books. We were pleasantly surprised at the place though. The gardens are obviously undergoing improvements, but it was still a lovely place to spend a few hours, and the cactus were amazing. We will have to come back on our next trip to see the new pools and the lake. A better map of the gardens would be a bonus too!

a bit neglected
Oct 2019
The admission was €10.50 each which we thought a bit steep. Especially as the gardens looked a little neglected and no water features were working. The birds in the aviary looked a little forlorn and could have done with a lot more space. Overall, it is a beautiful place with a stunning range of plants, but it does need a little more care and attention.

Gardens much better than expected
Sep 2019
We visited the gardens on our last day in Majorca. Really pleasant garden with lots to see and with some mighty impressive cactus spread all over, flowering shrubs and trees. Lake area is nice with lots of dragonflies. Ideal for spending a couple of hours at. Could be improved with a better maps to make it easier to find parts of the garden.

fascinating
Jul 2019 • Family
We were here with our kids in their late teens and I had some anguish if they will bore themselves - but just the opposite! The garden gave much more than we expected, further to the cactus species we marvelled the beautiful big leanders and palmtrees, too. There were hardly any people on that hot sunday, the garden would deserve more visitants!

Seen better days

A very rich collection of cactus and desert plants. Very large area to explore, with a play area for kids and plenty of shade to hide from the sun. Let down by the whole place being a bit tired and run down.

Beautiful cactussen
May 2019 • Solo
A bit overpriced. The cactusses are amazing. The palm trees and agaves are pretty too. You don't get a map and there is poor information in the park. The most disappointment was the so called lake. It is an artificial pond and you see the plastic all around.
You can buy some cold drinks but no cafeteria or restaurant.

Nice garden
Apr 2019 • Couples
It's a nice huge garden with a large selection of cacti and some palm trees. April is a bit early for the cacti to bloom, but there were some varieties in bloom already. You can easily spend a few hours here.

High expectations, little satisfaction
Apr 2019 • Couples
Located in the south, it can take some driving to get there. If you are not a cactus fanatic, don't.Out of the season, there is only a few visitors, no restoration at all. 10 euro is rather expensive. Little variation and much of the same.Again if you feel the need to take pictures of a cactus, then you will find what you are looking for.
