Overview

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.


Location: Located downtown, directly on its own private beach, just steps from Nassau's famous Bay Street and within 30 minutes from the airport.

Great location but not 4 star

First I like to tell folks that I travel for business a lot so I'm a self described hotel snob. After reading the mixed reviews I hoped for the best and booked 6 nights for my 17 yo and. Our room was ready when we arrived and although the hotel was not fully booked they did not upgrade me as a HHonors Gold member. No problem it's good to get an upgrade but certainly not guaranteed. As a gold member you do get their complimentary continental breakfast. It was great! We upgraded to the full hot buffet once but felt it wasn't worth the extra 8 bucks per person. If you want omelets though...they're excellent. About the staff....I had read multiple reviews that were very complimentary to the staff there. This was not our experience. Front desk staff were annoyed when I asked for the breakfast vouchers, staff in restaurant were also very short with us. They get 15% automatically (watch for that all over Nassau) so they have no incentive to take care of you. We ordered room service a couple of times. The breakfast for dinner (2 egg breakfast) was excellent. The burger and pizza not so much. Everything is expensive in Nassau so I'll just say that includes this hotel. The room (Executive King Island View) was really small which was ok for my daughter and me but if you are adults who are not a couple you'll feel a little cramped. Island view is sort of a partial ocean view. No balcony so that was fine. The outdoor space is this hotel's best feature. Hammocks, beach beds, lounge chairs and sofas...all for your daily enjoyment. The pool even on cruise ship days wasn't crowded. It was very hot when we were there and the pool felt like bath water. The outdoor bar was just ok. Lazy bartended poured run in a plastic cup, then dumped the frozen daqueri mix in and handed it to me. The mix melted instantly and overflowed the rum right out of my cup. Waste of 14 dollars for a 12 oz drink. No long pours...they measure everything! So if you just want a comfortable room and a beach to lounge on this is adequate. As I said the location is amazing. Walking distance to EVERYTHING! If your expecting 4 star accommodations go to Atlantis.

The Old British Colonial she ain't what she used to be.

We have stayed here many times through out the years. It sure is not worth the price but as they say location, location, location. The rooms are quite small and some are oddly shaped due to breaking up the old large rooms. For over $300 it was very small. There were two leaks in the bathroom and the tub was stained. The room was quite clean and the bed very comfortable. I was surprised that there was a charge for the wifi.

Good Location

The location of the hotel and pool area was very nice. Small beach. the staff was very friendly and for the one night we were there we found it fit our needs. The breakfast was a buffet and adequate with an omelet station. Registration was easy since we are Hilton Honors. I picked the room before we arrived and I really liked that feature.
