British Colonial Hilton
- What's Included
Ideally located on a beautiful private beach, this hotel is built on the site of what was once Old Fort Nassau. It offers guests a luxurious blend of excellent service and upscale facilities.
Less than a 10 minute walk from the cruise ship dock will get you to a little piece of paradise.The hotel lobby is beautiful. You check in at the guest check in desk. They were very friendly and helpful.The beach area was beautiful. Plenty of chairs and umbrellas.A large pool area with more chairs and umbrellas.A whole peaceful area of nothing but hammocks. They have a rental shack on the beach, everything is included in the price of the day pass, that has kyaks, sups, snorkeling gear, etc.They will bring towels down to wherever you sit.Your day pass also includes $40 food and drink voucher so take advantage of that. The food was good and inexpensive enough to allow for a couple drinks or a few beers.The Water is crystal clear and you get a great view of the cruise ships.Service from the staff there was excellent!A nice walk back to the ship you can do some shopping.What a fun day!A+
This Hilton was absolutely wonderful! The hotel is clean and pretty well updated. Staff is super helpful and friendly too. The pool and beach areas were not crowded and chairs/loungers were readily available. Food is really good but a little pricey like everywhere in the Bahamas. Really enjoyed watching the cruise ships come and go.
This is a great little excursion in Bahamas! They offer day passes for passengers on cruise ships to come and use their pool and private beach. It is about a 5-10 minute walk from the pier. Once you get there the hectic crowd and noise form outside disappears! It wasnt crowded at all. Very relaxing. They have hammocks, and beach chairs and a great pool. There is also access to their own little beach. The water was clean and the sand was soft and a perfect beach location. Our pass included 40$ voucher per person for food/beverage. Their patio grille was delicious. All 4 of us used up our voucher. Remember they add 15% service charge and 7.5% VAT tax to your bill, so dont think you will have any extra left over! we had a wonderful lunch , they grill it out there right in front of you. The staff was very friendly and efficient.This was a great way to end our week long cruise. Just a relaxing day at a very pretty resort!
I gave the hotel 4 stars because there were several things that I liked and a couple that I didn't. First, the room was a part of the deal with Jetblue and the room that we got, was not exactly what I expected, since in the booking it looked as there were options, when it fact there were not. I am not sure whose fault it was; hotel's or the Jetblue's. If your room on the city side and you are not used to the lights, you might feel uncomfortable. Anything that happens on the street, you will hear. The room was too small for 2 people who are not a couple. We were given a roll away bed, that barely fit in. Room was clean though. Second, the hotel (as all Hiltons) has event spaces, in 3 days we witnessed proms, conference, and a wedding. We did not hear any noise, but some people apparently did. Third, the hotel premises are small, but nice: area to sit outside a bar, hammocks under the trees, small pool and a private beach. I was told that hotel was fully booked and was worried that there would be no space in the outside areas. We waited till 4 or 5 pm to go there and spent earlier part of the day away from the hotel. There are Starbucks, bar that serves food (pretty good) and restaurant "Aqua" that is not immediately visible from the lobby. The check-in staff forgot to mention it to us. However, we ate breakfast there before our departure and it was quite good. They have hot station, selection of breads, fruits, juices, cereals, pancakes, etc. The prices at the bar and restaurant are kind of high ($14 for a mojito).There is a small shop on the hotel premises, that is opened late. It sells snacks, water, etc. Room service is served till late night (we did not use it). For cheaper breakfast options: Dunkin Donuts, McDonald's and a local restaurant across the street. The location of the hotel is quite convenient: all Nassau attractions are in a walking distance (shopping, museums, port, etc.). Jankanoo beach is in a walking distance too and fish fry restaurants are about 15 min away. It is a historic hotel, so it's location might be too tight with the city life of Nassau for some and a bit outdated in decor for others. However, overall, I must say the stay was pleasant. Hotel staff and locals alike are quite hospitable and friendly.
Loved the location and the atmosphere of the Hilton British Colonial. Definitely, a different class than the Atlantis on the other side of the Island. I loved the private beach and the beautiful hammocks during sunset...best relaxing time ever...it is however, very popular, with local parties and prom nights...so be prepared for some hustle and bustle in the lobby and some loud music at night...but the beach side garden, is unbeatable.
