Decided to stop by as I had not been here in about 15 years. The grounds were still the same and it was nice to walk around a bit but not much to see. Still overall a nice place to stop and stretch your legs and see some of the outside alters.

We have stayed there 4 times and 5th coming up in september. The rooms are more than adequate; the breakfast (Which is included in the room fee) is fantastic. Access to the beach (10 minutes) and the shops in K'Port (10 minutes) walk is truly a gem!!

The grottos are so beautiful and make you feel so calm and at peace. You just want to sit and enjoy the serenity.

I loved coming here when I lived in the area! You can walk around this place for hours and not get bored. A neat gazebo at the very end of the path overlooking the water.

The surroundings are very nice. Open air chapel. Unfortunately, we were there on a Sunday morning. So, too many people visited at the same time. Would visit again if back to the area.

We were pleased to be able to visit this monastery. The setting is magnificent and the walking trails are splendid. The small gift shop has ample things to buy as souvenirs. It is nice that the monastery is open for visitors.

We absolutely loved visiting this monastery. We easily biked over from our hotel in town. We attended Mass on Sunday and Monday--both beautiful services. The grounds here are incredible--absolutely beautiful flowers and trees. Wear walking shoes so you can explore the trails behind the chapel and gift shop. Many lovely spots for prayer and meditation. We'll be back!

Being Catholics it was interesting to see the shrines, etc. However they need some help cleaning and fixing up, hope they can find someone to help in the area.
