“Ive walked here down the beach numerous times”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 18, 2013

This is a very nice replica (or actually I think part of Versailles was relocated to here).

I like to sit on a bench there and look around patiently to see humming birds. It's also very neat to see the statues, the very old authentic statues. Very cool.

You can walk in from the beach side, and walk out to the street the other way. Then make your way back to the resort. It's a nice walk and with tradewinds coming in, it's usually not overwhelming from the high temps there. If you like exercise this is a nice way to get it. A short walk down the beach to the Garden, the out the other way and down the street. Now you've got the blood pumping a little and perhaps even burned a few calories. It's all good.

“Versailles- spend the day!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 27, 2012

Gorgeous venue to visit, however it comes with a crowd, a MASSIVE one at that!
I pre-purchased my ticket, so I sort of skipped the line. An audio kit is included in the ticket. There are hundreds of people trying to look at the same things as you, so don't be disapointed if you don't get a 'good' look at everything. The rooms themselves say enough!

Pay the extra to go into the gardens, you've gone all that way, may as well make the most of it! Take a picnic. However I did get a little lost trying to find Antoinette's garden, just try and follow anyone you can see!

“Serene”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 28, 2012

The peacefulness and serenity of this beautiful space soothes the soul. The gardens are immaculate, the grass is so green, the sculptures and stone steps add solidity, and the view of Montagu Bay is perfect.
