This hotel really is a gem. Just five minutes from the airport and within walking distance of two good restaurants, it is a secret slice of heaven! After a day in Nassau fighting through the cruise ship guests, return to an honesty bar, charming staff and don't forget to have dinner there too. Technically a B&B, their chef is amazing... More

This is a place where you can come and have a quiet relaxing vacation, this place is like a gem. It is only three minutes from the airport and around the same to a close by beach where you can just walk to. I would certainly recommend this place to anyone. The staff are very friendly, Chris the manager is... More

This is a perfect place to unwind. A place for serenity, a retreat from all the hustles and stress of city living. I highly recommend this place for those searching for peace within.

My wife and I have been travelling to the Bahamas for three years now. We fell in love with the "Out Islands", those small, less developped islands, away from busy Nassau and Freeport. Nevertheless, each of our trip have started the same way: with one night at the Stone's throw. Far from the glitz and crowds is the way we... More

We landed at A Stone's Throw at the end of a road trip looking for a bit of relaxation in a quiet, picturesque location; we weren't disappointed. Stone's Throw is only ten minutes from the airport and the pickup took us door-to-door. The building and grounds are lovely, with stunning views of the ocean. The pool is great for a... More

My husband and I went to Nassau to dive at Stuart Coves and wanted a nice place to have the post-dive, together part of our stay. A Stone's Throw Away was perfectly lovely. The large patio overlooking the ocean became our evening drink spot when we were not diving, and we had the restaurant (a bit pricey) plus several less... More

we stayed here for one evening before heading to cat island. It looked so beautiful in the website. It is very pretty but i would never go back. The service stinks. I found everyone to be unhelpful. Thats if you were able to find them. I think this place needs new management. I dont think they even care if they... More

We stayed at at ASTA for two nights en route to traveling to the out islands. We wanted a quiet, relaxing place, to avoid the bustle (and expense) of the behemoth hotels like the Atlantis. ASTA was a very convenient, 5-minute, no-fuss drive from the airport (a complementary transfer to the hotel is included in your stay). When we arrived,... More

I had seen reviews ranging from one to five stars, and I now understand the range. This hotel could be very nice, but the facility is getting run down and the service is spotty and uninspired. I understand that one person's "quaint" is another's "run-down" so here are some anecdotes. Our visit started with their free airport pickup, which never... More

We ate here on our last night in the Bahamas and enjoyed it a lot. The food was very nice althought perhaps slightly overpriced ($38 for the black cod). The service was attentive and friendly. They didn't have a few things on the menu (not finished making it yet was one reason!). I got the impression they didn't expect too... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
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. ... more   less
