There is a pool one a lower level and if you would like to swim they divert some of the water from the falls to fill the pool. Entry to the garden is $10 each , this includes a... More

The gardens are pretty and the view of Ocho Rios is spectacular, but with the cost of the tour at $40 US for two of us we felt that the guide repeatedly telling us he would accept a tip, was a little out of line. The garden is pretty, but expensive.

This is one of the north coasts most beautiful gardens. so many species of blooms that I'd never seen. and the waterfall was dancing and glittering. they have a lovely rum tasting as well in the hotel so be sure you stop in. the hotel should get better points for this beautiful hidden gem.

Gardens that have been designed with care and maintained with pride is a good start in describing this green getaway. Plenty of trails and hiking possibilities or scenic venues just to relax and appreciate the natural surroundings. We found that even the park security is relaxed here with "sleeping policeman" (speed bumps) ensuring a leisurely speed is driven through the... More

We did the Ocho Rios water fall. This place is beautiful and very cool to visit. They have lockers in which you can placed your non-water resistant items. MUST: if you want to relive this place over and over again, please bring a water proof camera

Visited as part of a tour. This is such a beautiful park to walk through - so many amazing flora and fauna and lovely little waterfall. We had an excellent guide and we walked for ages. We could look out onto Ochio. Really nice and relaxing break from a hectic tour.
