“A bit of Europe in the Bahamas ”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 May 2014 via mobile

Amazing 12th century cloister gardens! Property abuts one and only but they do not own it. You can get to it by passing their driveway and it's 100 yards up the road on both sides of the street Amazing wedding location or place to just sit and enjoy the sculptures and columns and lily gardens! The very bottom of the hill on the left side of the road it changes to private property but it is clearly marked on the posts where this occurs! We have been going there since the 1970's and they look fabulous today as they did then! A nice quiet place of beauty or picture spot! Worth the walk -

“pretty but unless you are near there, not worth the trip”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 April 2014

it is at the one and only club. a security guy came and asked if we were staying at the hotel and we said no and forced us to move away from the steps leading into the hotel. You can see the Cloister with it's nice view and the gardens in the front but really we could've not done it.

The Gards themselves are beautiful, but Marten our guide made it even more memorable with all the side stories about the Gardens and the Royalty. Thanks for making the tour so much fun Marten

“Fantastic”

The gardens are extremely beautiful. It's amazing to know they were created hundreds of years ago. It's a must-see attraction.

“Very interesting”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 April 2014

We set off walking from Harborside it was easily a good 2-3 mile walk which wasn't the most fun but when we got there it was pretty interesting and makes for some great pictures. Walk down you can see the ocean and the boats coming in and out. The landscaping is amazing and it certainly it worth it but maybe take a cab ride. I will say the Public beach is on the way so if you do walk just head to the beach after and enjoy what the public beach has to offer its entirely different than the beaches at Atlantis
