“Beautiful Spot”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 3, 2013

What a beautiful spot. I see all the other reviews have loved this place as well. For a free little activity, it can't be beat.

If you are planning to propose to your significant other in Bahamas, consider this place!

“One of the most amazing places on earth”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 30, 2013

This place has to be one of the best places on earth. One of man's best kept secrets. Pictures don't do this place justice, if you are ever in The Bahamas stop by the cloisters.

“beautiful for a quick visit”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 17, 2013

Very beautiful and peaceful. A pleasure to walk the grounds. I would recommend eating at the dunes restaurant on the one and only beach club and get there early so you can check this out too by walking the one and only's property.

So worth the walk. Beautiful walk down there and gorgeous once you get there. Perfect for photos! The gardens are just stunning and don't forget to walk across the street to see the Cloisters!

“14th century French cloister...in the Bahamas?!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 13, 2013

Bizarre to find an old French cloister in the Bahamas but some very rich man imported it from France and rebuilt it, stone by stone.
beautiful view of the ocean through the cloister, perfect background for taking pictures. Right across is the Versailles Garden, which for a native from France like myself, seemed a bit comical considering the location and the size of it...and the name. But the small garden is well tended, you will find some statues of different origins and time. The whole picture is charming though and we took many photos there.
