I called housekeeping and front desk twice about their pillow and sofa smelled, I think due to not drying properly, have the damp smell. Requested to change and spray some air freshener. Not sure if they have changed it when I went out, but it still smelled after I came back. Very disappointed. I couldn’t sleep on that pillow. Called another time… Read more

I booked 2 rooms on July 4, 2020. and this is my 3rd times at Bayview Beach. 1. Smile & Greeting. The staff assigned to take the temperature and visitor information should be more friendly. No greetings and even smiles (even wearing masks, If you smile visitors can feel it). I know it's probably because she had so many visitors at the time.… Read more

No greetings and even smiles (even wearing masks, If you smile visitors can feel it). I know it's probably because she had so many visitors at the time. this should not happen any further during especially during peak season. 2. My hose bathtub is not working, but... less than 10 minutes they fixed it immediately. Good job maintenance!! 3. It may be possible if you can place a pool attendant especially at the children's pool, as there are times when adults over 12 years old also use the facility which should be for children only. Last but not least, I will definitely be coming again & again in the future. Read less

Clean room. My kids and family enjoyed ourselves by the private beach and also the hotel rooms were lovely. we took the family suite and had nice beds for the kids and us as a family of 5. they had 2 tvs so the kids can watch the cartoons while the adults movies that we have wanted to watch for some time. Overall, lovely time.

Kinda disappointed that bathtub is not working well and the hose switch is set behind the toilet bowl, it is so inconvenient especially highlighted in toilet facilities. TV channel has less option. Hopefully can add more channel.
