The service, ambience, rooms were outstanding. The room was properly sanitized and they took extra precautions for the health and safety of their guests. I would like to mention MAHESH, SURESH for their excellent hospitality. The way they treated us was extraordinary.

We have been members of the Bayshore Club. We enjoy the staff and the atmosphere. Renato, Sandha, Prabath and Dinudu have been so friendly and helpful to our family and they know our children by name. They are very responsive to our feedback. We would give it five stars if they changed the following: -Get rid of all of the dirty cars parked by people of the Yacht Club who do not have parking in their residential areas- it's a nuisance on busy days when parking is scarce. -Get new bed covers for the sunbeds at the pool and beach -Allow members of the Bayshore Club to use the hotel towels as we are paying a high price for the membership. -Food be available to be served before 11am. All in all we are happy with the Bayshore Club and these are suggestions to give it a 5 star rating. Read less
