During our winter escape on the Grand Bahama's we visited these gardens. Understanding that everything on this island is still recovering from Hurricane Dorian and keeping that in mind as you visit this site you will be appreciative of how far they have come. There is still cleanup under way, it is going to take time for these gardens to encompass the full beauty they once showcased. With that said, there is so much here that has bounced back and much to enjoy. A true time frame to enjoy the whole garden area would be about 2 to 3 hours. There are many paths and different nooks of diverse beauty and wildlife to take in if you are patient and allow it to entertain you. A quick walk through and you will miss so much. We did not take in the Cafe, however, the menu looked appealing and many folks were enjoying the fare. As this island faces the challenge of recovery, tourists need to support it for it to fully recover for all. So make this a definite stop on your vacation itinerary. It is a very pleasant place to spend your time.

This was one of the highlights of the trip! I enjoyed walking the Labyrinth, and sitting under the trees listening to the birds. After the tour there was time to simply relax.

We chose this excursion on Carnival Cruise line. It was a nice way to learn some history regarding Freeport and see some sights of the area.

Highly recommend while in Freeport

Nice way to spend an afternoon, or some part of the day. Tons of plants and birds flitting all around. Still some visible damage from the hurricane. There is a cafe but it was closed due to rain - and the whole park was planning to close. I am a believer that if you advertise hours you should be open during those hours.

It is not kept up very well. Most of the Grove is off limits. Their map is not current and it is very easy to get turned around. Right now their shops are all closed. If you really like plants and lizards it may be worth the entry fee but not a tour. Cafe was the best part but the food was decent at best.

Throughly enjoyed spending time in the beautiful gardens. The cafe is lovely with fantastic staff who are very helpful. Lunch was great and quite a large selection. The cafe overlooks the water and the turtles came over to say hello. The gardens are beautiful to walk around and we thought actually well maintained.

We had a great experience at Garden of the Groves. There were five of us including three teenagers, and we all paid $11 entrance fee. We really enjoyed wandering through the gardens, especially seeing the birds, butterflies, and turtles. The waterfall was lovely, and looking at the vegetation was a treat. We hardly saw a soul while wandering around. Definitely worth the entrance fee, and we all really enjoyed our time there.

Unfortunately the Gardens were heavily damaged by the Hurricanes. It is noticeable. However there is still much to see. We did not do the tour since COVID was a factor when we booked our trip. Check out the talking birds while your here!
