  • This is a beautiful tropical garden designed to attract hummmingbirds, who come and go as they wish yet are incredibly approachable. Spotting them requires a bit of patience, but the small bottles.....  more »
  • Read the bad reviews before booking. Don’t bring your kids here. Barney Schubert hates children, in fact he’s notorious for it (as I later learned). There's something wrong with someone who so...  more »

  • Me and my wife went here. The person who greeted us and showed us around was awesome. He was really informative and accommodating. We arrived at 2:45 pm and by 3:40 pm Barney came and told us to leave. There is no time limit listed, but expect to be asked to leave if more people show up after you. For more action try the morning. The hummingbirds were beautiful to see. We had about 4 feed from our bottles.
  • Barney's is a beautiful little flower garden close to Rick's Café. There are some hummingbirds flying around that you get to try to photograph and even feed. The garden is small, but pretty, and well maintained. The welcome itself from Barney was a bit peculiar. When calling ahead (he insists on this, as the garden is so small and he can accommodate max 6 people at a time), he asked if our child was quiet, because he does not like noisy children to join. And when arriving the first thing he mentioned was 'this is not a children's playground'. We felt a bit uneasy because of these comments. Less welcome. He mellowed up a bit during the visit, perhaps because we have a quiet child. But all in all, having visited other gardens in Jamaica (can recommend Sun Valley Plantation near Ocho Rios), the place was a bit of a disappointment. Did not feel welcome, it's a bit small, and not much is done in terms of 'tour' (for instance, there was very little explanation about the birds or plants, just some basic info). For 20 dollars a person (10 for our son), we would have expected more. Wit the additional cost of the taxi ride there, we felt overcharged. Note: Barney accepts only cash.
