A STONE’S THROW AWAY is perched on one of the highest elevations by the coast where Guests indulge in rare panoramic view of Nassau’s land and sea. The scenery boasts the best of the coral reefs that protect the glimmering beaches of west Nassau. The property is built to echo the traditions of an old Bahamian home: wood floors and wood ceilings, louvered shutters and a large wrap around porch brings one back to a period 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.
