Attending a four day conference, I stayed for five nights at the Bay Gardens Hotel. Since I wasn't relaxing on holiday, the distance to the beach (around 20 minutes by foot) and the lack of a large pool didn't bother me. In fact I thought the hotel is well located, close to stores and a range of restaurants. During the conference we ate many meals at the hotel and the food provided was excellent. On the last evening of my stay there was a rum party with musical entertainment introduced by the manager, who also introduced all the guests and gave us each a big hug! It is worth noting that the rooms are well equipped with comfortable bed, working table, coffee machine, etc. Finally, in addition to the friendly manager, most of the staff were helpful and smiling. In short, I appreciated the colourful style of the Bay Gardens, which I can recommend.
