Walked here from the Warwick hotel up the road. Worth the heat to view the sea from this vantage, plus the beautiful gardens, pathways, and iron work. A short but picturesque visit if you're in the area.

This is a beautiful space, but as per the other reviews it unfortunately turned out to now be private property and you are not allowed to walk through it.

Despite the difficulty of obtaining information about 'the cloisters', I eventually found my way here. Hint: locals won't know what you are talking about if you refer to it as Versailles Garden. Also, I wanted to walk to it from my resort but Paradise Island...More

I went there based on locals recommending it, looks like it used to be public but then sold to private owners, very hostile signs forbidding any tresspassing, I think it is shame on the city to sell such property, it is bad enough that half...More

Was so excited to see this place and walked about 15 minutes from the Warwick but when we arrived realized it's on private property and not available to the public. Big disappointment.

After hearing of this amazing garden and seeing it briefly while returning from an excursion from Rose Island, I became determined to visit. We had lunch at Dune, the creation of Michelin-starred chef Jean-Georges Vongerichten. After an exquisite luncheon, we asked permission to walk through...More
