Best Western Bay View Suites
- What's Included
Ok, bear with me, I really like to focus on the positive things when we stay at hotels and not dwell on little things, because nothing is perfect right? But this time I could not get past the many unfavorable things about this hotel and just want to give people a fair warning before booking. We knew it wasn't going to be the nicest place to stay, but we were extending a few days after staying at Atlantis and wanted somewhere cheaper and quieter. Their online website looked really fairly decent.... well it was misleading which is so frustrating. We had two rooms and paid $1,200.00 for three nights. We should have stayed put at the Atlantis. This place is old, very very grungy and very, very outdated. It wasn't wasn't clean and the staff was mostly rude. We called to get an extra blanket for my daughters fold out bed ( which smelled like urine) and they said they didn't have one extra blanket we could use! What?! What kind of hotel doesn't have one extra blanket?! They always gave us 2 bath towels a day after asking for 3 every single time. I asked for an extra beach towel and they told me that I was to use what we had in our room because they didn't have extras. Horrible toiletries, no dish soap or extra garbage bags, and the kitchen was so gross. Dirty dishes put back and it was not well stocked with utensils. The pools are small, with things floating in them, and the lounge chairs are old and weathered. We wanted to use the laundry facilities and need 2 dollars in quarters and went to the office to get them and the lady said they had no quarters to exchange. By this time I was wondering if I was on a hidden camera prank show because I have never experienced anything like this when traveling and staying at a hotel. And we travel all over the world! From our experience, no one working there was friendly and accommodating. Except for one man that was in the office working the first day we were there. We got a taxi to take us to get dinner because this place isn't too close to anything. (20 min walk to Atlantis) and our taxi driver did a drug deal right in front of us at a stop sign by the hotel. 😬We had our 3 kids with us. Sketchy place on paradise island. So to make a long story short, pay the extra money to stay at Atlantis if you can, or even a hotel affiliated with the Atlantis because you will have a great experience! Do not stay at this hotel!!!
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.
