We stayed there for 8 days from 16th June staff , food amenities where excellent the only negative is that they only had entertainment on two nights a week which basically forced you to go elsewhere at night. The location is pretty good but the major plus for it was that the staff were outstanding and very friendly and you... More

There were 4 of us and we stayed for a night. The family suite was spacious. Enjoyed the breakfast with wide range of food choices. Thrilled with the sea activities. The sea water is not suitable for swimming. Few restaurants nearby. The staff were friendly and helpful.

Dear fairlibra, We are delighted that our spacious suite has accommodated you and your friends comfortably though only for a night’s stay enjoying our sumptuous breakfast and various activites. The sea water quality is unpredictable including the presence of jellyfishes, hence, we compensate this situation with a hygienic and safe swimming pool for our guests. We look forward to your...

Stayed 3 nights at the end of school holidays so was busy and noisy. Ok location and walkable for food. We spent more time out then using the hotel facilities but would have stayed if the hotel put effort into service and modernising the property.

Love the garden by the beach. Quiet and lovely. Relax and had foot reflex at the beach front. Spacious room with big balcony. Just right next to the Hardrock Hotel. For those who doesn't want the all day long clubbing noise, can consider staying here and pop by Hardrock for a drink. Bed is solid and had nice sleep, unlike... More

Stayed there for just 1 night from my 8 days 7 nights road trip in Malaysia. Compared with all the other hotels who priced similarly, this hotel is just average and the furnishings are old.

The facade of this hotel is old and unattractive and the atrium is positively ugly. Which is sad because the rooms are spacious and adjoining ones are connected which is a big advantage for families in 2 different rooms. The swimming pool is very nice and big. There is a Recreation Room, which is pay per play with rather high... More

Hello KVK67, Greetings from the Bayview! Factually, the hotel is indeed built in the 80s and we have many times repeated the management’s decision to not change the 80s design of the resort in this forum through our reply to reviewers. We have always believed that opinions of a design is individually subjective. Our focus have always been and will... More
