At the west end of New Providence lies an exquisite hideaway. A STONE'S THROW AWAY is perched on one of the highest elevations by the coast. Here our Guests can indulge in a rare panoramic view of Nassau 's land and sea. The scenery boasts the best of the island's natural wonders, from the native pine forest by Lake Killarney to the brim of the coral reefs that protect the glimmering beaches of west Nassau. The property was recently built to echo the traditions of an old Bahamian home: wood floors and wood ceilings, louvered shutters and a large wrap around porch bring the visitors back to a quieter time long ago when the music of the islands could be heard in the whispers of the trade winds.

This property has such great potential, but is not being kept up. I felt like it was definitely not worth the $296 per night charge. Also various websites state “breakfast included” and “restaurant on property” Only after I confronted management with proof that our breakfast was included, did they take off the 2 breakfast charges. The cold continental breakfast was listed at $12.00pp. A “hot” breakfast, which consisted of a dry cheese omelet, was listed as $17.00pp - no other choices. The nightly dinner menu stayed the same - doesn’t change. I have a picture of the menu. Hope you all like Indian food because that’s all there is. Beautiful Pool area, but could better cleaning.

We needed a one night stay in Nassau between flights and we thought we would treat ourselves to staying at A Stones Throw. Sure, the location is great and the old stone and castle like setting was pretty great. But our room was rundown and smelly. It was damp and the furniture was old and tired. I felt like I was back in pirate times with a small room and a poorly equipped bathroom. The ocean view porch is huge but you share it with the room next door so it’s not private. The bathroom was really small and the shower knob fell off when turned on. No hooks to hang anything on and the itty bitty closet smelled dank. The cold breakfast the next morning was good but they only offer you paper plates and cups and plastic cutlery. For over $300US a night I want a cup of coffee in a mug, not a disposable paper cup. Brutal. I was shocked quite honestly. The view on the main deck is stunning but they need to up their game in finer services and decor to match the bill you pay. I won’t stay here again.

I really enjoyed staying here. The views from the room and the semi private terrace in front of it to do yoga on, were terrific. The neighborhood was nice with a shack nearby, where we had tremendous conch salad. Also we went to dinner and live music with ocean view within walking distance. On our last day, we ate the Chicken Marsala on the terrace and it was delicious. The staff was very accommodating and friendly. Altogether a lovely experience. We had a car to explore the island and the airport is very nearby. The only drawback was the Wi-Fi, which was very spotty.

Stone's Throw is super close to the airport--about a 5 minute drive. (But a taxi cost the four of us $35 each way. Yikes.) The hotel itself is charming in setting. The steps to walk up to the lobby and rooms, the pool area, and the lounge area are all cute. (There are MANY stairs and it is steep.) The view of the water once you arrive is stunning since you're at the top of a hill. The staff is very friendly and helpful. The rooms are also cute with plenty of character, but it could use some renovation. We had to switch rooms because our first room did not have hot water or really any water pressure to speak of. It was an easy process to switch rooms; no biggie. In the new room, the dial and drain cover on the shower were broken (but still functional). There isn't privacy between the room and bathroom because they have shutters between instead of a full wall. This is probably fine for some, but if you're trying to conceal bathroom functions, it's not ideal. When we changed rooms, we got one facing the ocean with some lounge chairs and a day bed, so that was a nice place to relax in the evening. It is a quick 5 minute walk to get down to a beach, but the hill is steep and certainly requires some cardio stamina. The location of this hotel isn't great if you're one who wants to eat at restaurants or go to a store to pick up snacks. It's about a 10 minute walk to a few restaurants in one direction (Studio Cafe is where we went and it was awesome), but the walk is a bit treacherous this way with no sidewalks and having to walk for a few minutes on a busy road. There is a coffee shop and another restaurant set to open soon in the other direction. The bus comes every 15 minutes or so at the bottom of the hill near the beach. It's $1.50 for each ride, so this is an easy way to get to downtown (which takes about 25 minutes to get to). Overall, I'd say we got out money's worth at Stone's Throw, but knowing what you're getting going in is important.

It was probably a really cute hotel 10 years ago. It is really dated and it needs to be freshen up. The room was really smelly. Left all the windows and doors open for a few hours to help with the smell. The outdoor furniture is dated also. Was a weekend lockdown for Nassau. No restaurant open and they had nothing for us to eat at the hotel (even though they serve breakfast...) which by the way consists only in bagels, toasts, some fruits, juice and coffee. So not impressed. Luckily was there only one night for my stop over going to Exuma. Oh, and the pool was... green. Maybe because of the slow time due to COVID this experience was not representative?

I've stayed here a number of times and I'm getting tired of the arrogant attitude. It's a nice place but I get the impression that "I'm not sure you're good enough to stay here". Answers to straightforward questions come with an attitude that I'm ignorant (I'm a million miler on two airlines). Last trip I asked for an early morning taxi to the airport and because it was so early I was concerned about no-show so I asked for a phone number in case taxi did not show. That request was brushed off with "they are guaranteed" and no phone number provided. You guessed it - no show. The security watchman nicely gave me a ride to the airport or I would have missed my plane.

A very nice small hotel. The rooms are clean. The suite had a large veranda with a couple of loungers and an excellent day bed, with very good views of the surrounding area and the sea. The staff were very warm and friendly. The only downside was the long flight of stairs from the entrance to the reception.

Staying here Off season is like having a Villa to yourself and staff included. The Staff at Hotel are very kind and accommodating! No down side. Explore the Area by Bus it’s $1 and convenient So many places to visit and then come back to this Villa in the Sky, Resort sits on a Limestone Bluff!

The hotel itself is incredible, the view, the pool, the entrance and the breathtaking views from the rooms and balcony! The service was 5 star and we were waited on every foot. Couldn’t recommend this place enough to any family, friends or couples!! Incredible!! Not far from the airport

Located near the airport ($15 cab ride for a 5 minute ride, yes a ripoff but taxis here are expensive). I didn’t hear much airport noise though, a little during the morning and day but not while trying to sleep thankfully. Noise was mostly from jets taking off rather than landing. But not an issue overall. The ride to Stuart Cove was 15-20 minutes from the hotel. An advantage of staying on the west side of the island is you’re the last to be picked up and the first to be dropped off from the dive van; meaning you can be dropped off and showered and out the door by the time those staying on the east side of the island are dropped off. The Jitney ride into town was about 20-30 minutes depending on drop off location; cost $2. Taxi to downtown cost me $40. There is technically a beach just down the road but it’s more rock than sand, so not a place you would want to spend any time. The hotel provides beach/pool towels. That walk up the stairs from the road would be a bad one if carrying heavy luggage (I had dive gear) but there was someone to meet me upon arrival to assist with the bags. The view is nice from the hotel since it’s on a hill above the rest of the island. The service from the staff is good and very friendly. The WiFi worked great for general internet, email, apps usage. The entire place was very clean. The bed was decently comfortable. The breakfast officially starts at 7am, but you’re on island time so it’s really more like 7:15. Continental is included but cooked food was an extra $18. The continental was bread, English muffins, bagels, yogurt, some fruit, OJ, coffee. The architecture looked great. Balconies surrounded the rooms on each floor and had chairs on them to enjoy the weather outside. There were a few restaurants nearby in walking distance. There was shampoo, conditioner and body wash provided in dispensers in the shower. Hot water was limited though so a quick shower is needed. There is a pool but I didn’t go in since was cloudy/rainy when I was there. But it appeared to be clean. The one problem I had with the place was the smell on the 2nd and 3rd floors. It smelled of musty/dusty attic. It wasn’t noticeable on the first floor, it was on the second and really smelly on the third. Probably a combination of cleaning products, humid wood and not much circulation. It didn’t trigger my allergies luckily (which that smell normally would). I opened my windows in the morning to circulate fresh air in the room so it wasn’t too noticeable in there. I did mention it to one of the employees and did appear to make an attempt by leaving the doors open but ultimately it didn’t have an affect on the smell. I hope they can figure out a way to address that smell (without chemicals) because it’s a great hotel otherwise.
