Just completed a week at this hotel in July 14. Having read the reviews people either like it or hate it, we liked it. The first experience was arriving in our hire car and trying to get parked. The drive is narrow and steep and the smell of slipping clutches could often be smelt. The so called argry man helped... More

Having read the mixed reviews, we weren't sure what to expect. Overall, however, we couldn't fault the hotel and were very impressed. Staff were very hospital, in particular the manager was very welcoming. The hotel is in a good location, very close to the beach, supermarket and the funicular to take you to the town (which is stunning). Views from... More

We had the privilege of spending 4 nights in Bay Palace hotel in the beginning of May 2014. We found this hotel pleasant, clean, great atmosphere, beautiful view, staff very kind and ready to help, and good food (half board).

Room was quite narrow and very dated - broken shower head, overloaded and exposed electric plugs, dodgy old furniture etc. Everything basically worked (and I don't spend much time in my hotel room except for sleeping anyway), but the whole place could do with some serious modernisation. Would expect more for the 4 star price we paid. Had a bit... More

This is an old hotel, which most rooms are small and old. The food was bad and variety. The service from the hotel management was bad.In addition, the hotel internet service was poor, most of the time it was not possible to use the Internet in the free zone. Even if you have no choice - Do not go to... More

I stayed there for a week in summer of 2013. The hotel is clean, the staff friendly, the breakfast very good, and the room quiet and comfortable. The only problem I had was with the internet which is not available in the room - I had to go down to the lobby to use it. Later, I learned that this... More
