Best Western Bay View Suites
- What's Included
I spent 6 nights at the Bay View Suites on my first trip to the Bahamas.On the first night, I arrived around 11pm by taxi and was greeted by the 24/7 staff guarding the front entrance who kindly took me to my room.On the next day, I checked in at the office with Sandra. I had spoken to her on the phone before coming and she was very professional and helpful. Alfred, another staff member, was also very kind and helped me when Sandra was unavailable.The room, although slightly outdated, was clean, had nice AC, and a fully stocked kitchen/bathroom. The room service was also great.The restaurant and mini mart on premise were open 8am-4pm, but the food options were not so good. Mostly prepackaged things/drinks and no fruit.The property itself was quite safe, quiet, and peaceful. Some families seemed to be staying there long term. There were three pools, a tennis court, and a beautiful landscaping with flowers and palm trees. Maintenance kept it in good shape daily.Also, thought I should mention an exceptional staff member here: Sandra. Throughout my stay, Sandra was extremely helpful, patiently answering my questions and explaining things to do in the Bahamas with my best interests in mind. Sandra tried to even save me money when recommending transportation, places to go to get better deals, and even going with me one day to help buy things at the best price. Sandra is perhaps the most helpful hotel person I have met across the world and I definitely recommend staying here to get service from her; in fact, she's a veteran in the industry, previously working at the famous five star Atlantis hotel, dealing with millionaires and billionaires.Overall, I really enjoyed the Bahamas thanks to the safety and security of this lodging, topped with the gracious guidance of Sandra, Albert, and others.
Great accommodations as all suites come with a full kitchen. The staff and service was excellent. The check in was efficient and very friendly. Quiet and yet just 5 minutes from the beach and Atlantis Resort. Free Wi-Fi as well as Cable TV. I stayed for 3 nights and will definitely come back. Great for families.
This quiet, quaint, resort has more than I expected and was quite comfortable. All staff were delightful and helpful. They have a reasonably priced restaurant, bar and a small mini mart. I will stay there again.
Overall O.K. for two or three Nights, but old fashioned and needs some Improvement soon. Staff very friendly. Appr. 10 Min. Walk to Atlantis Marina. Breakfast is not included, but next Superamrket is on the Way to Marina and very expensive as well as small selection of food and other staff.
It seems like this is a love/hate property. People either love the quiet, quaint and not the norm for a hotel or hate the fact that it's quiet, quaint and not the norm with no middle ground. We loved it. It's a secure property with a security guard as you walk in, the check in desk is outside of the main office and up a flight of stairs. The property is a mix of residential units (condos and apartments) and a hotel and you feel more like you are at home than at a hotel. We had a ground floor room (very clean, very spacious) and that came with a nice patio and a small backyard which would have been awesome if we had stayed for more than 1 night. If we had stayed for several nights that privacy of a private yard would have been lovely and it would be great for families with young children. The staff was very friendly, the manager on duty when we checked in helped us with our bags and later came to the room to help with another question we had about the TV remote and air conditioner. Breakfast the next day was simple, tasted great and was "home cooked" (seriously, the orders were done 1 at a time and it was as if we had cooked it at home which isn't a bad thing).Downfalls....any cab ride you take is going to be $15 plus tip, even if you go 3 miles down the road. So, bring your walking shoes. We transferred from the Atlantis to here and it was $15 plus tip, if we had realized it was a 10 minute walk we would have walked and saved money. The beach is also a short walk away and not right there. They have an on site restaurant but it closes early and the food is basic and anything you are going to go to eat at is a 10-15 minute walk from the hotel. Anthony's is a great place to eat and the prices are reasonable. Also, because the property used to be 100% residential there are a lot of pathways from one building to the next and steps going from one level of the property to another and down to the doors o many of the ground floor rooms. IT IS NOT WHEELCHAIR OR SCOOTER FRIENDLY!All in all, it's a great place to stay and the staff is friendly and helpful.
