We liked the look of this on Trip Advisor so went and booked it. In life, first impressions count and this wasn't good. After getting ripped off by the taxi driver we rung the bell at the bottom of the steep steps up to the entrance, and waited and waited. No one came, so we had to haul our baggage...

Based on some of the reviews that we'd read we were quite looking forward too our stay here, even if it was just for one night on a stop-over to Havana. We were however quite disappointed in our experience. I appreciate that everywhere on Nassau is expensive but at over $215 this felt like extremely poor value. Despite it stating...

This is a delightful hotel tucked in a quiet part of Nassau away from the crowds and tourists. The hotel is clean and well mantained with a beautiful garden and breath-taking views being located at the top of a cliff. It is also very close to the airport and it will only cost you $12 for a taxi ride. If...

The staff at this hotel were extremely accommodating! My husband was feeling ill and the chef came up personally to see what he could provide. I don't think we'd stay for many nights because we like to have our own kitchen and if we are going to do the hotel thing, would probably prefer compass point given its ocean front...

I was in a group of 4 scuba divers and booked at this hotel as they were one of the partners with Stuart Cove. We were disappointed to find that they did not accommodate divers by offering their breakfast (which was included in the price) early enough for us to catch the shuttle bus to the dive location. There were...

The hotel sits high up on a hill including a lot of steps to walk up which is nice for those of us who love to walk but would prove difficult for physically challenged people. The room was nice, clean, quaint. The only problem was upon arrival they sprayed some air freshner which made me sick so I had to...

Like most of your reviewers, we stayed overnight while waiting for a connecting flight to one of the Out Islands. This inn is totally charming, quiet and with great views. The staff was so very helpful, the rooms were clean, beds comfortable and a nice European style cold breakfast included. This is our new Go-To place when passing through Nassau....

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
