We booked a "Resort for a Day" pass for this lovely property when we were in port (cruising with Carnival). Amazing hotel and we were only at check-in (lobby) and buffet at the back of the first floor. I can only imagine what the actual rooms are like. Totally unexpected in downtown Nassau. Pristine property, private beach, lots of unique...

This hotel is in a great location, within walking distance of the ferry to Paradise Island and downtown attractions/restaurants. The pool and beach are great, and the hotel has a very nice friendly staff. Rooms were big, and very clean and comfortable.

The location is in the heart of Downtown Nassau which is convenient for walking around. Very close to tourists shops primarily targeting those coming in off the cruise ships. Hotel was clean and beds were comfy although the entire room was too small. The staff were professional and friendly. The guests were mid to upper class citizens and conducted themselves...

We stayed at the BCH last week, June 28-July 3. I had read the mixed reviews here and was a little concerned about our choice of hotels, but I should not have been concerned at all. It is a beautiful property with all the elements for a relaxing vacation. The location is perfect for getting a feel for the culture...

We had already stayed at the Atlantis for a few days and now moved over to the Hilton in downtown Nassau. So, we have a good comparison of hotels and locations. If you stay at Atlantis and never leave, you cannot say you visited Bahamas. The Hilton is right in the center of all activities and very easy to get...

I cannot say enough about this property or staff. The property is a little oasis in the heart of Nassau. The best feature of the property is the private beach. This is an unbelievable value because the public beaches are crowded and not well maintained. However the beach on site is a piece of heaven on earth. Jackson, Benn, Wendell,...

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
