This was my 6th visit to the garden. Of the two ladies one was still going strong. The time seems to stand still there. The garden is in the need of a total renovation. The ponds had deep sediments and the vegetation had grown a...More

We visited as part of a cruise excursion (Risco Bello, the orchid gardens and botanical gardens). This garden, in contrast to the other two, is less formal, with little or no labelling of the flora. There a 5 terraces, with fairly steep steps connecting them,...More

I visited the gardens today. Read recommended reviews saying this was a top spot for pictures and peace and quiet. It was quiet as I only saw 2 other people here. As for pictures, well what can I say. This place must be living on...More

We stopped in here when we realised how close we were. Followed the signs and were charged €4 per person to enter the aquatic gardens. You can tell they have been beautiful once upon a time with nice paths and little areas with good views....More

This is one of the hidden gems in Puerto de la Cruz. It's a fairly steep climb up from the main seafront area, or a short & cheap taxi ride. There is a tea garden at the entrance, then you just have to find a...More

The garden is a series of water gardens overlooking Puerto de la Cruz down a side street at the top of the Parque Taoro. The house where you can buy light refreshments was built in 1938 for English merchants has the feel of a small...More

A lovely set of pools surrounded by gardens, interesting views around every corner. Not suitable for limited mobility visitors due to many steps.

Quite tucked away but well worth a visit. Beautiful gardens with lots to see and many interesting features. Some of the steps are a bit awkward but I think you can still see lots from the balcony. Refreshments available. Definetly worth a visit.
