We were on a tour of the island and our guide brought us here. It is an old plantation that closed about 100 years ago which is now used to show how spices were processed here years ago. We were fascinated with the many uses of the various nuts and leaves. There is no fee to visit the estate.

Went here as part of a tour. It's a barely operational plantation saw some cocoa beans drying and the talk on the different crops was interesting but you are better off going to the Belmont Estate. This said nice people very friendly.

The Dougaldston Estate is up a bumpy track a little distance inland from the nutmeg processing plant at Gouave. You need transport to get there, or go on an organised tour with Sunsation or one of the other operators. It's a bit like entering a forgotten world with its tumbledown walls, ramshackle buildings and prolific vegetation growing over everything. You'll... More

It's a peaceful setting in the countryside. There are tours, demonstrations and spices for sale. Photo-ops abound.

While in port on a Carnival Journey cruise out of Galveston, we took a tour of the island of Grenada with Mandoo Seales that included a stop at this old spice processing plant. Mandoo walked us through the buildings explaining each step, then gave a demonstration of the various spices. While the buildings are historically old, the estate is located... More

This interesting spot has a well set-up display of spices and good explanations. There are some spices that you can buy. Worth a little visit.

We visited this site as part of a RCL shore excursion. When we arrived there were several tour buses and the facility was very crowded. It was not an overly warm day, but it was very warm and uncomfortable in the sheds. There seemed to be little or no organization for tour groups. If you could get close enough, the... More

This was a stop on a tour with AJ Meddy Tours. It was interesting to hear about all the spices that were once grown and processed here. I saw many spices that I had never seen before processing. The lady explaining the spices was rather shy so a better speaker would have been more interesting. The grounds are mostly ruins... More

The Dougaldston Spice Estate was part of a ship's tour. As with Fort Frederick, I felt we didn't get to see the whole thing. There were tables laid out with various spices and the guide did a good job describing how the various spices were processed. There was no opportunity to tour the grounds or see spices on the vines.... More

As part of a spice tour it's wwll worth a visit to see spices growing on the trees and being able to see the whole journey of the various spices. It helps if you have an interest in spices or food as otherwise you may not find it very interesting. Again good for a 20 minute stop but there's no... More
