We stayed 2 nights and the British Colonial Hilton after staying 5 nights at the Royal Towers Atlantis, and found the rooms at the Hilton a little better quality (but smaller) and very clean. The location was perfect. Just 1 block from the hussel-bussel of downtown torists and had a perfect view of the cruse ships comming into port. The staff was friendly and helpful. Breakfest was included (continental) but you can upgrade to full for only $7.00 The bathroom was large and beautiful but the toilet didn't work very well, thats why I gave it a 4 star, but I still would come back to this place if I were to visit Nassau again.

Room Tip: Get the water front room upgrade,

My husband and I debated where we should stay here or Atlantis. We decided to stay at the British Colonial and I am confident we chose well. We wanted something low key, relaxing, and closer to actual Bahamian culture and sites.

It is in the middle of downtown. With the exception of the taxi to and from the airport we were able to walk anywhere we wanted. Shopping, restaurants, historic sites, boat to Atlantis.

The beach is a small strip. It was always clean with clear water. Some spots of seaweed. Yes, cruise ships sick near by, but it was never crowded. Free paddle board and canoes for hotel guests. Lots of entertainment watching people try to paddleboard. The consensus is that if you are adult-sized it is nearly impossible not to fall over. The umbrella and chairs are free, but the covered blue and yellow cabanas have to be rented. They should open those, because no one ever rented them and they sat empty.

They have ping pong and a giant chess set.

The hotel grounds are beautiful. I love all the cabanas and hammocks. The hammocks are prime reading and napping spots.

One thing I wish they had was coin laundry.

We didn't have our kids with us (age 8 and 6), but the hotel and beach would have been perfect for kids. There is even a McDonald's across the street! Lol

We worked out at the gym. It was clean and not busy. Somehow there is music playing. TIP: you can get filtered water here!!!!

If you haven't read it elsewhere yet there will be added tax to your hotel bill. Don't be surprised.

The Chinese restaurant that is connected is delicious.

The service at this hotel is amazing and beyond outstanding. My fiancée proposed to me at the Bahamas, last minute he wanted to do a surprise photoshoot to capture the moment. Immediately the bartender Jermaine helped my fiancée and connected us to an amazing photographer that day (3 hours later). Jermaine was so amazing he even had the photographer pick us up for free and drop us off afterwards, didn't even have to pay for a taxi. The very next day the photographer had the photo album of prints for us and a CD of all the photos she took. When we checked in we were talking to the receptionist and she ended up giving us a coupon for 2 free drinks on the house to celebrate my special day. On our last night in the Bahamas we spent all day at the beach and Omar once again provided the amazing service once again. He provided premium service and always made sure we were always doing okay and checking if we needed anything. Afterwards we ate at the seafood buffet at the hotel, which was amazing by the way and a must try. Our waitress Michelle and Diana both ladies are very attentive, sweet, and the best hostess you can find at the hotel. If you ever go to the bar or restaurant you have to recommend and only have these three people serve you if you want quick and amazing service; Jermaine, Diana, Eddy and Michelle. If you go to the beach ask for Omar.

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.

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.
