Beautiful place to stroll

This is part of the One and Only property. It is simply gorgeous and well maintained. You can walk from the ocean to the bay and still be in the One and Only property.

The Versailles Garden is beautiful! You won't find a prettier garden in the Bahamas (from my experience). I walked up and down the gardens two to three times in my 5 day stay!

We visited the Versailles Gardens and French Cloister and allowed an hour to do our walk through. It actually took only about 10 minutes...not a lot to see. Got some great pictures though.

This is the perfect time of year to visit the Gardens. Everything is blooming, the weather is perfect, its the first day of spring and the spring breakers aren't out of school yet. You will be delighted on how many flowers you know.

Nice photo opportunities, in the gardens, only went as far as the ocean club entrance as it was private beyond this point

I would definitely recommend viewing this area if you are on Paradise Island or even downtown looking to get away from the business. Taxis from downtown are only $4 per person and they will drop you off right at this location. We walked back to the Atlantis and it only took about 15 minutes. It is beyond peaceful to walk... More

Rare to see someplace so simple and beautiful. If you are staying at the resort, it is a nice morning walk. If you are not staying there, stop in for ice tea at Dune and check it out!!

If you're going to Paradise Island I would definitely recommend going to these gardens. They are magnificent, beautiful, and breathtaking. Honestly, there are no words to describe how they looked. If you could, get married there. 10/10

It is a 15 mins walk from Comfort Suites. If you are traveling with toddlers, either go for the walk in the afternoon or take strollers. We choose to walk there in the morning right after breakfast and it was HOT even though it was end of November. My older one got very tired and requested to be carried. The... More
