I booked Bay View after my flight was canceled last minute and my current hotel was already fully booked. I have to say even though the property is a throwback in time (they even still handwrite guest registration cards!) it was a pleasant surprise. If one is looking for the most modern amenities and full scale all inclusive perks, Bay View is not it. If one is looking for a comfortable, huge, fully equipped suite with (ground floor) a back yard - access to laundry, 3 pools (one morning we had the entire pool for 2.5 hours to ourselves), a flashback in time meal prepared (small kitchen with great breakfast), and friendly folks on staff - then Bay View is it. The few downsides - I felt the front door was a little too high and I placed a towel down there to prevent anything from crawling in. The bathroom water pressure was high and temperature was blazing hot (which is great) but the bathroom shows signs of the age of the property and rusted in a few places. The yards connect in the back and I had a groundskeeper walking through while I was not prepared to see anyone near my bedroom, they should have it closed off with a gate at least and still leave a walkway for staff. From a safety standpoint - I was not asked for my key when coming in very late one night and wondered how many other folks can just walk in to the property - that has to be tightened up. And we will definitely make Bay View a stop for a few days/nights on our next trip back. Our check in experience was made extra special by Mr. Fountain - thanks for the telephone book look up!…
A great place to stay on Paradise Island! The property is a bit dated, needs a bit of love and is not on the water but other than that, it's a great place to stay. Our room, a King Suite was LARGE and very comfortable, it was well appointed with a full kitchen and a comfortable backyard. The property is cozy, lush with plants, it has 3 pools all of decent size and two laundry facilities. The dining available on property is good but not available 7 days a week, only Thursday to Sunday and 10 am - 3 pm. Dining off property is limited and pricy. Get your food and alcohol off of Paradise Island (20 min walk across the bridge) the value is WAY BETTER as is the selection. Now for the best part of the resort - the people there were great, staff and guests alike - friendly and real, no pretentions. This is not a loud, crazy property, it is laid back and relaxing.…
We really enjoyed our stay here. What an adorable little retro resort!! Great price, great location, beautiful suites and lovely staff and property. It’s old. You need to know that. The TP leaves something to be desired. But if you can handle some cracks here and there, it’s a great value for the money. It’s very clean and well cared for. The pools are beautiful and very clean. We absolutely loved it and if we came back to Nassau for a non all-inclusive holiday, we would stay here again!!
Suite is huge and has a full kitchen, living area, two TVs and a safe. Lots of shaded areas to relax around the property, including two pools that are open to 10pm. Strong WiFi in the room. Toiletries and fresh towels, including pool towels, provided every day. Yes, the room is dated and could use a fresh coat of paint, but this is excellent value for money on an otherwise expensive island. Cabbage Beach, a must-visit, is a 7-min walk if you take the shortcut the staff show you, not the Google Maps route. Atlantis is a 5-min walk. They also own Anthony's and Dunkin Donuts so you get 10% off if you go. Cornell, the security guard, is a friendly and helpful gentleman.
I was assigned a second story room because the clerk thought I would feel more safe since I was traveling alone, but I requested and was given a room on the first floor as I didn't want to cart up my suitcase. There are no elevators. I was surprised at how big my suite was. It had a sitting room, full kitchen, bathroom, large bedroom, and private patio. The kitchen was well-stocked so you could easily cook some meals for yourself. My room was clean and very comfortable. It was very quiet. The staff was helpful and friendly. The beach is not easy to find, but the hotel is close to Cabbage Beach. You can walk to a decent shopping area for groceries, restaurant food, and souvenirs. I'm glad I stayed here.
This was a studio apartment. The room was clean and functional. The staff members were friendly and helpful. The furniture was dated, the bathroom showerhead was broken. There was only one restaurant within in 10 minutes walk. Due to covid, there was no food service available in the hotel. Overall, I had a pleasant stay.
Couldn’t decide between Atlantis or Bay View.... Went with Bay View and so pleased I did. Lovely staff, friendly and welcoming. Very helpful. Gardens kept beautifully and pools clean. The apartment was spotless and cleaned daily with fresh towels, soap, shampoo etc. Ample utensils to cook with. Nice and secluded, peaceful..went to Atlantis for the day...overcrowded, noisy and ostentatious
This is a "budget" hotel on Paradise Island. Actual price is about $230 with taxes and fees. Rooms are nice, but there is no view. We stayed on the main island 5 nights and here 3 nights. I don't get the attraction of Paradise Island. There is not much to do or see and not many places to eat. The staff at Bay View is very nice, but I'm not a fan of the location.
Stayed here for a week in February 2020. The location on Paradise Island was excellent because it is 5 minutes to Cabbage Beach (which is beautiful) and 7 minutes to the Atlantis, local shopping and the ferry which you take to go to Nassau. It is in a gated, secure area with two pools, small restaurant and bar on site. The suite had a kitchenette that has everything you need to cook. The room was fairly clean, good size and service was good.
Having to stay in Nassau for 1 night due to a business trip, I decided to stay at this hotel. After the short registration I was positively surprised about the size of the room which is most likely like an appartment. It was equipped with a living room and a fully equipped kitchen and a sleeping room. Breakfast could either be prepared in your own kitchen or being ordered at a small restaurant located at the pool area. This hotel is perfectly located in Paradise Island and many restaurants are nearby and are in walking distance. Also the rate of about USD 120,- was very convenient considering the location.
