We had 4 days here and enjoyed it very much. Nice spacious room, cleaned every day early morning, a little noise from Hard Rock next door at night but otherwise quiet. Nice menu at La Veranda but short stroll takes you to various restaurants in Batu Ferringhi shops etc. Staff very friendly and welcoming. We would stay again.

The hotel is located near the beach , has nice facilities like pool and kids playing area, but unfortunately the rooms cleanliness is bad, and lots of ants and insects inside the room, even in the bathroom insects are there! Ants get inside our food ! (See the pics) , really need to improve this point !

Bay view Beach Resort is really beautiful. The staff is friendly and very helpful. The views from our room were wonderful. I was there with my adult son and daughter. We had two queen beds and my son slept on the sofa. The buffet breakfast has a huge spread, where you can try an assortment of local fare. The resort is a great place to relax and unwind. There is a pool and a place for people to play ping pong and basketball. The beach views were enjoyable. There is a lot of seating where people can lay in the sun or enjoy the views under some cool shade. Sea activities are readily and easily accessible. Across the road from the resort are some inexpensive food stalls/restaurants. In the evenings, there are stalls about two miles up the road, where you can buy souvenirs. You can haggle if you want to. Overall, I would say it was a great place. Read less

Recently renovated rooms - it pays to become a member. Overall hotel infrastructure needs sprucing (apart from the recently renovated rooms) Staff service is quite excellent - accommodating and helpful. Complementary breakfast - the buffet spread though generous, could do with a little more variety - gets boring should one stay over a week All… Read more

We were very excited to visit here for a family long weekend away. Online, the resort looked and sounded amazing. However, it is in need of updating and the facilities are worn down. The tennis courts had a broken net. The gym was very dirty and the equipment was very old with rusty hand weights. Everything outside looked like it could use a paint job out by the pools. However the service was good and the rooms were clean. We did not eat at the resort at all but walked to several great places within a kilometer away! Read less
