We stayed here in later December 2013. Staff was rude, room was not vacuumed and food was terrible. Only upside was the alcohol. Will not stay here again. The entire place is a money grab. Felt sorry for a couple getting married that day as they had virtually no support from staff.

well yes, it's a little pricy, what a nice beach. NO crowd and and really good service. the staff was wonderful, directing us to several places we would not have known about. Like Greycliffs and the time we spent on the Flying Cloud! If all you did was examine the room and breakfast, you must not have been on vacation.... More

This hotel is extortionately overpriced. The hotel room I had was fine. Nothing better than average. The breakfast at the hotel is the typical below average standard that you get at all Hilton hotels. It has a convenient location. There are much better options on the island to stay.

Read about this on Trip Advisor and decided to try it out during a day at shore on a recent cruise. You pay $65 to make use of the private beach and pool and they include really comfortable sun loungers and free kayaks and snorkelling gear for the beach. You get a $40 credit against food and drink so you... More

This was my second visit to this Hilton. Beautiful, stately hotel but it can use some TLC. The carpets are torn in the hallways, a bit of mold in the shower. The staff can be hot and cold. Some are very friendly, others not. Not a bad stay but not one that was impressive either.

We stayed here for five nights in early April 2014 and had a lovely time. The good: You can't beat the location - 5 minutes to shopping, restaurants, people-watching. The beach is small but we found loungers even on busy days, and the lounges around the pool were comfortable and luxurious. The views from our room of the ocean were... More

Hotel Class:4 star — British Colonial Hilton Nassau 4*
Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Situated on downtown Nassau’s only private beach and the site of Old Fort Nassau, the British Colonial Hilton in the Bahamas has undergone a multi-million renovation throughout all areas of the hotel, and offers a taste of the island’s rich history, along with some of the most modern amenities for both business and vacation travelers. What’s more the hotel is only 25 minutes from Nassau (Lynden Pindling International) Airport. The hotel is a true Bahamian experience with a marble-tiled lobby and is studded with palm trees under a skylight ceiling. There are 288 luxuriously appointed guest rooms with harbor or island views. All rooms are furnished with tasteful decor, complemented by separate shower and bathtub. One-bedroom suites offer a separate living area with sofa bed, and Executive accommodations are also available along with the Executive Lounge, where attentive hotel staff assures that every need and whim will be met during your stay. Recreational activities are convenient and varied for leisure and business travelers alike. A 300-ft long private white sand beach is furnished with lounge chairs and thatched sunshades overlooking the harbor offering a peaceful and secluded access for an ocean swim or a day in the sun. Use of kayaks and snorkeling gear on the beach is complimentary. Bordered on one side by a tropical garden, the hotel's freshwater pool offers harbor views and has an expansive sundeck with lounge chairs and umbrellas. Both the sundeck and beach offer views of cruise ships moored nearby, and of the western tip of Paradise Island, 300 yards offshore. Guests can snooze in hammocks on the lawn adjacent to the pool. The property can also organize trips out reef snorkeling island exploring, boating, golf, tennis and scuba diving. For dining options, Aqua is a fun, casual restaurant serving international favorites with a Caribbean flair, or guests can meet up for cocktails at the Bullion Bar. The new Bullion Bar is the 'place to be seen' for happy hour with great drink specials and tasty snacks. ... more   less
