Great drinks and dinner here. I loved the street access through a limestone tunnel up stairs to the outside dining area. The food is great, well prepared and presented. The floor above has beautiful settees to relax in.

We needed somewhere to stay quickly when we missed our connecting flight to the outer islands. This place was recommended to us. We were travelling with children aged 3 and 7. They had a room ready for us in 15 minutes. Okay there are a lot of stairs, but someone carried everything for us up and down. We had a... More

Quiet bed & breakfast close to airport, beach & restaurants. Perfect for couples & honeymooners wanting a quiet, relaxed side of the island. They make you feel like family. 3 story structure on a high cliff overlooking the ocean. Cool breezes & a pool. Beach is quiet , we had it to ourselves one day.

I had to stay over one night before going to out islands. Had ocean view room (#8) which had beautiful view. Room opened onto spacious wrap around balcony with a large day bed to relax in. Room was exceptionally clean and comfortable. The pool area is tropical and it was relaxing just watching large variety of colorful birds that shared... More

I wasn't impressed. It is an old colonial home, transformed into a boutique hotel. Has a lot of charming elements, but when taken it total, it misses the mark. Service was slow, they only had one person as far as we could tell who was manager, concierge, waiter, reservation agent, and bus boy. Very pleasant guy, but could not possibly... More

NIce room - very clean, but noise from other rooms a little bothersome. Still, pleasant place with good staff. Our plane was early so no breakfast to review, just coffee, which was a godsend. Complimentary water would be a nice addition.

This hotel was recommended but is definitely not a 4 star hotel! ! Maybe 2 stars We spent 5days in this hotel and must say that the site is beautiful and staff friendly But! The owners are very snobby! The rooms need urgent make over! And if you ask breakfast from menu your chances of getting it within and hour... More

We have stayed at A Stone's Throw on a number of occasions as it is the perfect location for an overnight stop before flying to the out islands. We were fortunate in being upgraded to a suite this years and the room was superb. Large, airy and the views excellent. I am particularly writing an update as ASTA now offers... More

I'm not picky at all and I am very well traveled (tour guide for ten years). This B&B could be much better if it made a few improvements. 1) we waited over 2.5 hrs for dinner and the cook was only serving 2 tables total 2) breakfast portions much too small/limited for a B&B. why in the world is the...

What a wonderful piece of Heaven in the Caribbean. Such a quiet, beautiful place on the NON-resort side of the island. The staff was so attentive and helpful. Simple but great breakfast served each morning.
