Our first cruise and not having a clue of what to do while in port, I was so glad I did my research! we knew we wanted to visit the HD store and the Straw Market, but also the beach! We walked to both of them and a little further to the British Colonial Hilton. We checked in for the... More

As usual, the staff at the British Colonial Hilton at Nassau are the most fantastic compared to anywhere I travel in the world; especially Ms. Campbell a front desk executive of the highest professionalism and genuine sweetness. Professor Gilbert NMO Morris

We were re-routed to Nassau on the Norwegian Breakaway due to bad weather with little advanced notice and had no plans. Three ships besides ours were all in port together. (10,000+ people) We booked a day pass at the Hilton and had the best day! The beach is private with no one trying to sell you stuff, a lovely pool,... More

Just back from 6 night stay in the Governor's suite at the British Colonial Hilton. I called to ask the hotel how big the room was as there is nothing posted on the actual website and they told me "they had no idea". Check in was good. Room layout was awkward, but balcony was AMAZING! Huge bathroom! Great concierge and... More

We stayed in this hotel for a weekend, Friday-Sunday night in an executive room on the 6th floor. The room was small for an executive room, however it did have a big bed, large bathroom with separate shower and bath. The bathroom was very clean with wrap around large white towels. We didn't have any of the issues mentioned by... More

My wife and I stayed at this hotel for one night and that was enough. The room was extremely small which was ok if the bed didn't cause back pain the next day. The bed was extremely uncomfortable. The business center was a joke with only 2 computers in the middle of the foyer where you hear everything and there... More

I was a bit skeptical of booking this day pass from home, sight unseen, but as it turned out it was the best decision. My daughter and I arrived at the Hotel, quaint, located right in the heart of Nassau, convenient to all the shops on Bay Street and easily walkable from the Cruise Ship Dock. The Hotel is an... More

You get a food credit of $30ea and use of the facility including towels. This hotel is gorgeous and was WELL WORTH EVERY PENNY. The beach is beautiful, covered chairs, sand... More

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
