If you are visiting the Lebanon and want to stay away from the hustle and bustle of Beirut, Jounieh is is a great place to be. Scenic views, great restaurants, trendy bars and a bit of calm and tranquility make this an excellent alternative to Beirut. When we visited in 2010 (yes, this review is somewhat overdue), we made Bel Azur our address and had a great time there. The rooms are are not exactly 'Arabian nights' style (don't expect to find much of that in Westernised Lebanon), but they are large, comfortable and of a good standard. We had a balcony with seaview and loved the huge terrace by the poolside, where we had breakfast every day. Staff were very helpful too and assisted us with renting a car. We used Bel Azur as a hub to explore other places in the Lebanon such as Baalbek, Beiteddine and Beirut. This worked very well, though traffic in and out of Jounieh can be bad (though not as bad as Beirut) so mostly we only managed to explore on new place each day.
