This was the 7th time we have visited Penang and stayed at the Bayview over the last 19 years and it’s safe to say we can’t stop loving it!

This was the 7th time we have visited Penang and stayed at the Bayview over the last 19 years and it’s safe to say we can’t stop loving it! Everything at the Bayview is pretty perfect, the grounds and swimming pool are stunning not to mention the friendly service from the pool attendants that continue to remember us each time. The breakfast is one of my favourites every time with options to cater to everyone, your hardest decision will be which way you want your eggs cooked from the live station. Our room was gorgeous and huge with a lovely view of the beach and pool, the housekeeping team are always so polite and friendly with a warm smile each day. We were travelling for my Mums 60th Birthday and when enquiring with Reception to organise a cake they went out of there way not only to prepare it at a particular time for us but offered it complimentary as a Happy Birthday, we couldn’t have been more happy. I could go on writing about the Bayview forever but will finish by saying thank you to the whole team for another perfect stay and we can’t wait to see you all again! Read less

It has been nearly 10 years since we last visited Penang and returned with my extended family staying at the Bayview, had a lovely time, hotel as good as last time with added bonus of revamped rooms, we had side seaview floor 10, amazing view. Staff friendly, pool and grounds spacious and right on beach, quiet end of resort, not too far to walk to restaurants and there is a bus stop outside the hard rock hotel next door for a few pennies. Although some places have closed there are still plenty of little places to eat. Watersports right outside hotel and lovely beach bar, Frandys to the left, always good for an afternoon or evening drink, food also good. Enca restaurant the road from the hotel, very good and cheap, ate more than once here. Weather, as always fantastic, When we return to Penang will definitely stay at Bayview. Read less
