We had a nice stay at The Bay Hotel - a lovely room with a great view, wonderful pools and you can't get a better location. But if you're looking for refined 5 star experience, it's not quite there. The people are lovely, and there is always a smile, but I'm not sure they know exactly how to deliver the... More

I stayed at the Bay Hotel with my family between 17 and 19 December 2014. I found the hotel quite family-unfriendly - we were unceremoniously asked to leave the bar when my 16 year-old joined us and I ordered a soft drink for him because the hotel has apparently have a policy that under- 21s are not allowed in the...

I spent 2 nights at The Bay and loved it. The room was impeccable--the bedding so plush and the bed comfortable, the layout, the attention to detail. The staff was very helpful. the pools were great--the deck chairs comfortable with good service by the staff. the view of the ocean so beautiful. the breakfast was delicious--still dreaming about those biscuits!...

Great location and pretty stunning views of the ocean Had a very nice stay there overall. The staff was very friendly and welcoming. There seemed to be a break in communication between the booking team and the rest of the staff, as some specific information (honeymoon, early check-in) was not passed on. It didn't impact the stay, but would have... More

Our honeymoon trip to The Bay Hotel was super! The room had a view of the ocean as well as the cricket ground on the side of the hotel which gave the best of both views. The bathrooms were clean and large with good amenities. The staff was very courteous and helpful and most of all, the location is superb.... More

This hotel have a great staff very positive attitude even during the dark hours and I mean the dark hours, the electricity was cut off and stayed with no lights for almost 2 hours, this is not the hotel issue on the other hand the hotel needs a lot of maintenance work.

In today's world where one becomes accustomed to mediocre treatment at top dollar it's amazing to see that some establishments still get it right. Offering good old fashioned service and professionalism. Thank you to all staff and management for a memorable experience.

Wish I'd had more time and stayed longer. 5 Stars all around for location, facilities and rooms, but 6 stars to the atmosphere and friendly staff. As someone who travels a lot there's no replacing friendly staff who are great to interact with and offer service with a dash of speed and a smile! Will definetly be back.

We arrived at breakfast at 8am and were seated at a table next to the window with the most amazing views - the variety of food available, from oysters and champagne to full cooked breakfast was so good that before we knew it - it was 11am!
