We visited in May and it was too hot to do the trail into the trees, but we did the short walk along the water garden path which took about 10-15 minutes. It was a bit underwhelming; despite a beautiful little waterfall at the beginning, the rest was mostly greenery and stagnant water ponds with some plants and flowers. Maybe in the summer it's more colourful and pretty (but would probably be buggy!!!!) but our visit rated just "okay". The bathroom was really dirty and there was no toilet paper, #1 rule of travelling is always have paper in your pocket :)

This place is nothing special and hardly worth the stop. It's nice enough but nearly all the plants are non-native and the place is not even well landscaped. Possibly worth stopping for 10-20 minutes as you drive past but not worth a special journey.

We went to these gardens as part of a shore tour on our cruise. A lovely place for those who enjoy the beauty and tranquility of gardens. Quite nice, not overly big, good to wander around and enjoy some of the lovely flora of Tahiti.

Stopped by here on our tour around Tahiti. Nice collage of trees and flowers native to Tahiti. Descriptions of them to read along side. Peaceful setting. We were here on a private tour so it was even nicer without a crowd. Nice stop if your driving and sightseeing.

Part of a day-long tour of the area, we stopped to enjoy the native flowers and plants, take a short trail walk, and visit the clean restroom. If I hadn't been on a tour, I would have enjoyed spending more time exploring the gardens. As it was, I enjoyed getting a sample of the types of flora and fauna that grow in the region.The gardens were lush and beautiful the day we visited. Definitely worth a visit!
