Clean room. My kids and family enjoyed ourselves by the private beach and also the hotel rooms were lovely. we took the family suite and had nice beds for the kids and us as a family of 5. they had 2 tvs so the kids can watch the cartoons while the adults movies that we have wanted to watch for some time. Overall, lovely time.

Kinda disappointed that bathtub is not working well and the hose switch is set behind the toilet bowl, it is so inconvenient especially highlighted in toilet facilities. TV channel has less option. Hopefully can add more channel.

None of your staff assist me and my kids with our luggage once we arrived at the entrance. One of your staff is there, just staring at us without any warm welcome. Lazy and ignorant. Registration process is tiring, took very long time with long queue. Your front desk should be more competent and efficient doing things faster on the documentation… Read more

My company held a business conference here and to say that the facilities were more than accommodating is an understatement. They were willing to make as many adjustments to our needs as possible, the food was excellent (seriously delicious), the staff were kind and friendly, by the end of the week we were all on a first name basis and the view is stunning. Coming from the United States communication was a bit of a challenge, we found the prompt correspondence to emails (from the hotel) were at times frustratingly slow, but once we arrived we were able to sort through all of the changes, adjustments or accommodations that still needed to be placed. Overall, we will likely be use this resort again! Thanks Bayview Beach Resort, we will likely be making our return next year! Read less
