The service was extraordinary with the impression given that almost no request was impossible. The decor and history was amazing. The winelist was impressive, and the cognateque even more so. The lounge was incredibly cozy and had great ambience. The cocktails were excellent, service extremely snappy, with 2-3 waiters for just 10-15 people, and the musician provided excellent piano and song. The pool area and gardens were beatiful and lush, with many little spots for chatting or enjoying a cocktail. The location was in the old part of Nassau, which is great if you value historic buildings and cities.
The facilites were less luxurious than a modern hotel, owing to the age. However, the gardens and pool area were beautiful. The place seemed slightly abandoned as there were only few staying guests. (Many came and took advantage of lounge and restaurant, though). While breakfast was included, we were still billed for tax, so we ended up paying $10/day for the continental breakfast for two people. It seems a bit misleading. The continental was also "true" continental - some toast, croisant, jam, coffee/tea and juice. Nothing else.
We loved the salon and its unique atmosphere, the jazz singer at night, the personal attitude and attention of the manager/Owner. It felt like family! We loved the garden and the pool and the food was excellent. We understand that the hotel tries to give a lot of attention to the culture of the island with the cigar factory, the chocolate factory - both excellent products!
Service was slow and the air conditioning very loud. As service was slow all over the Bahamas, we accepted initially, but were surprised when visiting Luciano's - Nassau's second best restaurant (after Graycliff's!!), where everything was sharp and quick (and very good too). The lighting should be improved to make the dining and bedrooms look brighter and more welcoming. A little paint makeover in the dining rooms could go miles.
Swimming pool is really amazing
Very old with bad maintenances furnitures
This was an exceptional hotel, with an incredible history oozing out of its pores. It is an expensive hotel, but the experience was worth it. The staff were amazing and the piano player on the night we stayed was outstanding. The swimming pool was the most luxurious and beautiful we've ever seen.
The dinner was somewhat underwhelming, not bad, just not in sync with the price paid, but the ambiance made up for this. I would like to have been wowed for the price, and we were not.
Tatty and uncared for. Nothing worked!
