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!
