SSR Botanic Garden Reviews
Wir möchten hier nur für Klarheit sorgen, da wir wegen der Riesen-Seerosen hingekommen sind (eigentlich beruht die komplette Reise darauf) und mega enttäuscht waren, als diese nicht da waren. Was man ... more »We just want to provide clarity here, because we came because of the giant water lilies (actually the whole trip is based on it) and were mega disappointed when they weren't there. What you saw was not a pond with hundreds of 2 meters of water lilies, but a brown pond with maybe 10-15 small water lilies. Later I was told that there was a parasite in the pond (worm) that kills the water lilies. The botanical garden is nevertheless a beautiful place to stay and offers very nice photo motifs.
Ce parc était. Si beau ,pourquoi ce manque d’entretien si flagrant, les jardiniers mettent leurs outils avec les sacs a ramasser ( gounis) derrière les arbres si bien qu’il y en a partout dans le parc... more »This park was. So beautiful, why this lack of maintenance so blatant, gardeners put their tools with bags to pick (gounis) behind the trees so that there are some all over the park (no other places to store?) and then you have to take a guide if not explanation or so the signs are damaged what damage Or are the managers of this park it is dying and who cares !!! Hopefully see it revive again soon because it is unique take into conscience gentlemen ladies those responsible because the entrance is paid and I do not think it is a problem of money
Nice place to visit. Lots of exotic trees and plants. Famous peoples status who helped in building the island. Without forgetting the big fish pond , waterlilies.
Peaceful atmosphere. Nice place to relax. Only thing: Maintenance is lower than before. Hope it gets better! Otherwise, perfect place.
