Tripadvisors tilnærming til anmeldelser
Hver Tripadvisor-anmeldelse går gjennom et automatisert sporingssystem før den legges ut. Dette systemet samler inn informasjon som svarer på følgende spørsmål: Hvordan, hva, hvor og når. Hvis systemet oppdager noe som muligens strider imot retningslinjene våre for fellesskapet, blir anmeldelsen ikke publisert.
Når systemet oppdager et problem, kan en anmeldelse automatisk avvises, sendes til anmelderen for bekreftelse eller gjennomgås manuelt av teamet vårt av innholdsspesialister. Disse spesialistene jobber døgnet rundt for å opprettholde kvaliteten av anmeldelsene på nettstedet vårt.
Teamet vårt sjekker hver anmeldelse som er lagt ut på nettstedet og bestrides av fellesskapet vårt for ikke å møte retningslinjene våre for fellesskapet.

Wow! A must see. We had a fabulous visit. In order to appreciate the incredible variety of plants, trees, fruits etc it is important to give yourself at least two hours to explore and enjoy the atmosphere. If you’re hungry or thirsty there’s an excellent bar/restaurant serving delicious local specialties. Make sure you meet Sharon, the enthusiastic and dedicated owner/manager who is a delightful character and will give you a personal guided tour.

We went as a party of 10 with 2 small children and had a great couple of hours here. The trails were easy to follow and the descriptions of the trees and plants very interesting. The children loved feeding the fish.
The cafe proved a welcome shelter from the heavy rain but also gave us the opportunity to taste both the drinks and food there. Both were delicious and included octopus, blackened fish, omelette and literally the best fries ever. All cooked freshly and to order.
Very much well worth a visit .

If you are in Barbados don't miss these beautiful and wonderful gardens. On our walk we bumped into Sharon (manager?) and had a really enjoyable and informative chat with her. It really is a different world. Also, don't miss the on site cafe which serves great food and drinks.

Without doubt the largest collection of exquisite plants, trees, shrubs and succulents from all over the world to be seen in barbados! Very modern approach to how you visit with their own app that gives you alot of information about the plants/trees your looking at. The history of the gardens is great and they have been landscaped beautifully.

Thank you so much! It is such a shame that we get very few visitors - one of life's mysteries! I hope potential visitors read your review and come. The variety is outstanding. Iris Bannochie's garden is one of the best in the world. It gets better and better as we continue to invest in this truly special botanical landscape. Hope you can return. Thanks again. Regards Sharon

Thank you so much! Yes! This garden is so special. We love and care for it, as Iris Bannochie's Andromeda Botanic Gardens deserves all the attention we can possibly give. And yes, we have no money. But we continue to invest, open up new areas, ensure inclusivity, and protect the wonderful biodiversity found in this unique landscape. I hope people read and heed your plea! And we echo it, of course (smile). We need visitors. We love it when those that do come, truly appreciate authentic gardens and love this special organic environment. Thanks again and I hope you can return. Regards Sharon

Wonderful garden with a huge range of fascinating plants and trees. Download the free app and you can listen or read about each stop on the garden walk as you progress. Just enough information is on the audio, without being too detailed. We loved the whole garden, some stunning blooms and plants and obviously looked after with real dedication. The whole place feels very well maintained, clean and loved. Clearly a passion project. Even if you are not a gardener this is a fascinating insight into tropical plants and trees, especially for Brits like we are. We also had lunch in the excellent cafe, fish tacos were first rate. If you are a British National Trust member you receive a 50% discount, though even at full price it’s a great place to visit. Nearby road surfaces aren’t always the greatest but if you have rented a car don’t let that put you off, it’s well worth the effort to get here.

Thank you so much. Yes, the Brits love gardens so we are always surprised that we get so few visitors. But, we will continue to protect Iris Bannochie's gift and masterpiece for as long as we possibly can. . We hope you can return as we continue to add new areas. People love the new butterfly haven in the Ethnobotanical Garden - no need for butterfly houses here! Thanks again. Regards Sharon.

Lovely place for a walk, QR codes available all the way round for information about a lot of the significant plants. Loads of butterflies, and also monkeys wandering about, which was great to see.

Thank you! We now have our Andromeda App that visitors can download before they arrive. This provides written and audio information for a selection of our plants. We're so pleased you enjoyed the butterflies. Sometimes there are eight different species flying around all at the same time. Magical. Thanks again. Regards Sharon.

A real pleasure to be able to walk leisurely around this Botanical garden created by the Bannochie family. The garden is very well maintained and the major plants are identified and marked clearly. There are numerous indigenous plants but also plants collected from overseas trips and locations.
The estate has had a very varied history, even being used by Navy spotters to seek out Russian submarines during the Cold War.
It is well worth a visit, if you enjoy gardening , it’s not as intensively planted as Hunte Gardens therefore you enjoy it for its botanical and horticultural experience rather than its colour and vibrancy which you get with Hunte’s.

Thank you for your review. Yes, gardens are created for different reasons and for different audiences. Andromeda is an authentic garden was created from 1954 by Iris Bannochie, our most gifted and influential horticulturist, as a private botanical garden for her and her family. Hunte's was created as a tourist attraction in 2008. So both are incredibly different. Andromeda is managed with the emphasis on protecting and enhancing its unparalleled biodiversity (over 550 different species, 120 tree species, hummingbirds and monarch butterflies) and well as attempting to connect Barbadians with a unique part of our heritage. And, of course, Andromeda is a botanical garden, with amazing variety of both plants, and experiences (comprised of about 20 different gardens). Hunte's is a show garden and, although considerably smaller at 2 acres compared to the 8 acres at Andromeda, is indeed more exuberant as that was the reason for its creation. As well as the emphasis on community and biodiversity, Andromeda is an organically managed space. As a botanical garden, its mandate is to conserve, research and educate and it is a registered training institute. It is also an art hub for local artists and the community. We do try to support our local artisans and the shop has many wonderful products. The restaurant is owned by a local chef and has received glowing reviews. If anybody is truly interested in the environment, history, the local community, nature and biodiversity and authentic gardens, a visit to Andromeda is a must. Thanks again and I hope you are able to return. Regards Sharon

We visited several gardens and forests while on the island, and I would say this one was the best. Both Andromeda and Hunte's gardens have an amazing selection of plants, but Hunte's is a bit cramped, while here there was more room to spread out the plants so they were not on top of each other. Most species had markers, so you could identify what you were looking at. The vast assortment of flowers attracted many butterflies. It was a very peaceful and relaxing setting and a photographer's paradise. I highly recommend this as a must see on the island.
Only complaint was why they couldn't have given you a proper map for your tour. They wanted you to download a QR code. I could not manage to get connected to the internet and download it. Not everyone is a tech genius, what's wrong with just a good old map. Navigating wasn't too difficult, just a few places where more arrows would be helpful.
They do have a small cafe, but it was full both when we arrived and when we left, so it could be difficult to get a table.

Thank you so much for your review. Yay! Many visitors agree with you - Andromeda is the best garden on the island. Some have gone further and stated it is one of the best in the world. As a botanic garden, we are committed to fulfilling the mandates of 'botanic' gardens - conservation, research, education and display. We are also committed to community engagement. We have over 550 different plant species; over 120 tree species; incredible history; community spaces; art hub; and the butterflies! I'm super pleased you enjoyed your time with us. And I'm hoping people read this and visit as we do struggle, sadly. We stopped giving out maps and guide sheets during the pandemic. We still have the maps but the garden has expanded so much and the route is now completely different so the existing map would be useless. Please note, we get very few visitors, and have extremely limited resources. The business at Andromeda is privately owned and tiny - we're just doing the best we can. The new maps are being created right now, but it takes a bit of time and money. Hopefully these will be ready by the middle of April (as will our revised app). But, meanwhile, we have added more arrows - hooray!! It is a shame you were not able to download the app - it is on our website so it can be done before you visit (or afterwards as it is quite interesting). Free WiFi is available and there are young people at reception. They should have helped you! (Yes, younger people are generally more tech savvy). Many apologies for the lack of assistance. Eastside Kitchen is independently managed. It is very popular as the food is quite delicious. People do book for celebrations etc. and, as the restaurant is small, it is best to reserve a table. Thank you, once again, for visiting and for your review. When you return, I believe you will have no complaints at all but contact me if you do! Hoping to see you! Kind regards, Sharon.
