We stayed at the Bay resort for three nights after staying just around the corner at the Coast hotel. Although the Coast was good and has some great reviews, in my opinion it does not offer the same feel or atmosphere as the Bay.
The rooms are relatively basic but offer incredible views and have everything needed. It is true from some of the negative reviews that you have to request new towels and bedding, however this is a small resort not a chain and was promptly completed as soon as it was requested. There is a pool a private beach an outdoor restaurant and many sun loungers. the restaurant lounge and bar are all open plan and leads from outside on he decking into an inside lounge and pool table. All of this was really well decorated and offered a laid back feel. The staff were good although some can come over as a little rude, after time you realise this is just the language barrier as all were helpful.
The food was good and of good value as were the drinks. The only negative was that the hotel is built into a hill road. This means that it offered great seclusion but at the expense of being a little remote and a 5-10 min taxi from anywhere. It also meant the walk out of or into the resort was very steep. If you can see past this then it's one of the best hotels in Ban Tai.
