“Overall Stay Experience”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2013

The family room is really big. Though it mentioned can fit in 4 adults, it is still comfortably can fit family of 4 adults + 1 children. Room price is reasonable with breakfast included. Room is clean and well maintained even though the furniture is a bit old. Staff are friendly. The hotel pools, tennis court, gymnasium are all well maintained.
Worth staying.

Dear MaudLN,

Regrettably where we are located along a busy shipping route, the sea water quality has the unpredictable presence of jelly fish. Hence, we compensate this situation with a hygienic and safe swimming pool for our guests. Happily our hotel has one of the biggest free form pool in Penang with a 4 meters deep end and a sunken bar, outdoor Jacuzzi, a kiddies pool, a meditation pool, a Play-Pool and a roof-top private swimming pool as alternatives from the less friendly sea . As you stayed here in March 2013 during the construction of our Play-Pool, I am pleased to advise that the completed newly opened Play Pool has proved to be very popular with children and we are delighted that it has given them so much fun and joy during their stay. This new facility is part of Bayview Beach Resort’s fresh concept of providing a wholesome family fun resort along with the various family friendly facilities.

I am glad that you liked our spacious rooms facing the hill and we look forward to welcoming you and your family back and enjoy the options mentioned.

Overall the hotel looks like it requires some upgrading and maintenance. During my 5 days stay, the TV and sockets were not in working condition, while 2 of the 4 beds have foul smelling bed sheets.
But they were all rectified by good service staff, I must say. Kudos! The only service part that I was not satisfied was during checkout time, when we clarified on the bill, the clerk showed her displeasure when we could not understand why the bill was higher than promised. She kept explaining that it was s credit card hold, but did not explain that any excess would be refunded, which I figure it out myself later. She gave an exasperated look and just said she will print e room bill to show us.

I was looking for a good family place and I got it. To start with, kids room where you can leave your kids taken care of while you explore things not interesting for the younger ones - worked beautifully. Toy museum not far away is another plus. Lovely pool with a special place for kids to play is yet another plus. Horse riding and jet ski was very enjoyable. The only thing that could be better was the food, in particular the western one, but given the widest variety of choices just nearby this hardly can be a big issue. Surely would like to come again.

Room Tip: Sea view and high floor is obviously the best.

The general condition and location of the hotel is above average and the room price is reasonable.
The staff are friendly and helpful and thou they are busy, the room are clean everyday. The room that I was staying was facing the swimming pool and the sea. The hotel is also located next to hard rock and the next good dining restaurant is 8-10 mins walk.

We have just stayed at this hotel for 7 days with a 2yr old. It is situated at the end of Batu Ferringhi so away from the busiest section but still convenient. Lots of pools (sunken bar included) & beautiful garden setting to just laze & relax in, a new kids pool was just perfect for our son who had lots of fun. Partial seaview on the west side 5th floor was perfect for us. Excellent array of breakfast to choose from the buffet. Laundry across the road that is good & cheap, 3kg for 4MR per Kg. Night markets are just a stroll down the road, 10-15 mins. Long beach cafe is a safe cheap & clean place to eat. Hard Rock Cafe is next door to the hotel for a great feed plus for something a little special try Ferringhi Gardens. MUST DO'S - Monkey Beach which is a 10 min ride on a boat from the pier, lots of water activities plus 4 wheeler motorbike trek to check out the jungle, saw lots of monkeys & fed them by hand. Adventure Park offers many climbing activities & flying foxes for all ages, lots of fun. Butterfly farm is pretty & interesting. But most interesting of all was a day tour we organised with Ocean Jupiter (40MR per hour) with MICHAEL the driver, he is a local who thrives on taking tourists to places away from the busy touristy hype & into local culture. ie. a clean & safe street food market, high hill top view over island, hollywood drive of Penang plus the lower class living. A excellent day that should be done in the first couple days of your holiday so you have a better understanding of places, food & culture. If shopping is what you need catch the 101 or 102 bus outside HardRock into Georgetown to Guerney Mall or Island Plaza, the bus home can get very crowded so catch a taxi for 30MR. We used Taxi's alot, found them to be way cheaper than booking any set tours with tour groups. A great holiday had by all with excellent service & hospitality at the Bayview.
