    Great location and nice private beach

    The hotel have a superb location if you are planning to spend time in Nassau Downtown. The hotel staff is great, rooms are good and clean and the beach is nice including bar and sports services at hand. My wife and I usually spent mornings with tours, etc, then when back, conveniently spending time at the hotel's beach in the afternoon before going for drinks or dinner in the evening in the city downtown.

    Worst service, wonderful beach

    So my family and I bought a day pass to visit the hotel's private beach and pool to use during our Disney Cruise. It wasn't cheap either, for 3 of us it was a little over $200, plus you get a $40 food credit per adult and $20 for child which I thought wasn't too bad. Let me begin with checking in. The staff was great, very nice, she informed us of the amenities, we can use towels, snorkeling, paddle boats and of course their beach and pool. She sent us on our way to the back of the hotel with our towel vouchers and food vouchers. There were about 5 employees back there. When we arrived it was around 9:30 a.m. My husband then decided to rent a cabana which I obliged for $56 extra. The cabanas definitely need updates as they seem like they're hand made and their curtains look like they took them off a ghost pirate ship (dingy with holes in them). Their lounge chairs also look like they haven't been cleaned in months with stains all over. I put my towel over it so I can sit on it as I felt weird laying on it. Now let's talk about service: someone finally came around about 11:00 a.m. to ask us if we'd like to order drinks. We ordered a bucket of beer, and two non-alcoholic daiquiris. The waitress finally came back 30 minutes later with two almost melted daiquiris and a bucket with melted ice. She blamed it on the heat which I get, it's hot, but personally I believe our drinks were sitting around for 30 minutes. I asked her if it's a good idea to order food now considering that the drinks took forever to get to us. She said yes you should. So we ordered a hot dog, a burger, and some kind of kale salad with grilled chicken. We didn't get our order until almost 1:30! According to my husband the hot dog was good and my daughter left half her burger as the patty seemed dry and old. The kale salad was drenched in dressing with the oldest, driest pieces of grilled chicken you ever seen. It almost looked like they put it in the microwave and dried it out. I couldn't even eat it. I brushed off as much dressing as I could and ate the kale, but I was so hungry afterwards. The beach got packed with people right away and there was only 2 paddle boats and one inflatable raft available with maybe two items of snorkeling gear available for EVERYONE. My husband ended up going into the hotel's small shop inside and bought snorkeling gear for my daughter for $25. The pool was clean, however most of their loungers with sun shade did not work and they looked dingy and old. Overall, I was very disappointed with this hotel being that it's the Hilton, and I'm glad that we purchased a day pass and not actually stood here. I would definitely look elsewhere if we ever decide to visit Nassau again.

    OK for First time in Nassau

    I stayed at the British Colonial Hilton in May 2019. This was a leisure trip. As my first trip to Nassau, I did not know what to expect. The hotel itself has its charm. It's presented in a colonial style and kind of dated to be honest. There were not all-inclusive options in the resort package and not alot of food choices on the property. Its proximity to downtown Nassau is one of the only perks. We stayed in an Ocean view suite. It was quite small, but the views were nice, and we could see the cruise ships pulling in and leaving for the week we were there. One of the good things about this resort is the private beach (see pics below). The attendants were nice and friendly. Nassau in general is not a cheap place to visit, with costs adding up very quickly from taxi rides and food. You will also pay a utilities fee for electricity and water, payable when you leave. There is a Starbucks on site on this hotel. Also, we felt safe here, as the hotel was not open to non-guests after nightfall. There is tons of food nearby within walking distance. My advice to you is not to take a taxi, but to use the bus system or source a shuttle for your transfer needs.

    Avoid Nassau and the British Colonial Hilton

    Don't go to Nassau in the Bahamas. It's a dump...dirty, expensive, and a big disappointment. There are far better island choices than this one, where everything shuts down at 6:00pm, where rats run around, and restaurants have horrible service, food, and outrageous prices. Go elsewhere and avoid the 12.5% value added taxes and automatic 15% gratuities, energy taxes, including a $15.00 room gratuity everyday, that was never cleaned!! Taxes double your costs on the island of New Providence! Avoid, unless you are going to Atlantis, than stay on Paradise Island, which isn't a ghetto.
