Wow!!! British Colonial is now $100.00 for the day pass.

Recommended Posts

Wow!  Just called and talked to Noisha at the British Colonial Hilton in Nassau and she quoted me the following:

 

   Adult Day Pass:  $100.00 - $40.00 F & B Credit

   Children under 12 - $50.00 - $20.00 F & B Credit

   Children under 4 - FREE

 

This is much higher than what I have recently seen on this site.  I asked for the date of June 29th, 2019.  Yikes!!!!

Even at this price, I still prefer the Hilton.   No crowds, no outside vendors, private beach and pool.   Relaxation and quiet is what I look for, can't find it anywhere else.

There are third party companies that are selling the day pass for $79. We were there last week, got the $40 F&B credit and had a great time. Note: Due to Margaritaville Resort being built next door, the BCH will be going under a lot of changes too. They told me the outside bar will be torn down shortly and refurbed.

Lots of new lounge chairs on the beach, but with the new resort next door, the outside area of BCH will be upgraded too. The bar in the bottom left of the picture will be torn down and upgraded. Not sure it will be done by June.

We were there a while ago and there was a lot of dust and construction noise from the building going on next to the Hilton.  Is that still going on or have they finished?  Thinking of going in August, but don't want to be trying to relax next to a construction zone.  Thanks for any help.

Resort for a day is offering the British Colonial for $82.00 per day with the $40.00 F & B credit.  I am amazed that the call directly to the hotel resulted in the increased cost.  Our group has decided to try the Cable Beach option instead as they are looking for a better beach.

Not much construction noise going on last week, mostly painting etc. The problem for the next few months is what they’re going to do at the Hilton itself. They’re going to start tearing down the outside bar in a week or so and I don’t know how long that will take to upgrade. 

 

They’re also going to be putting in a cross-over between the two places, eventually, so you can hang at both. When it’s all done it should be awesome.

They also have a new walkway that goes past Senior Frogs to the right. You don't have to walk all the way around to the left anymore. It's kind of a shortcut. Also, the pier that jets out between Hilton and Sr Frogs is now a restaurant/Bar. It was pretty busy last week when we were there. I think I have a picture of it right before they opened that morning. They open at 11am....

This is the new restaurant/ bar on the pier by Hilton. It was pretty busy when we were there. I think it's called "Never say Never again".....or something like that. The "walls" open up and it's a full bar with food service etc. They have hanging chairs in the back where you can watch all the party boats go by.
