We stayed for 1 week at Bayside and would have liked at least another 3 days!
A very peaceful and calm relaxing environment.
The room was basic but comfortable, decorated in simple taste. There was a sofa bed to put up a guest or child and two single beds in a duplex style studio apartment.
We had small but adequate kitchenette. Two electric hob and fan, fridge/freezer, supply of cutlery, sharp knife and tin opener and bottle opener! No fish slice though or wooden spoon! tea towels supplied and bin renewed with bin liners daily.
A comfortable sofa bed to watch TV if required limited two channels -but who wants to watch TV when you have the sun to be out in! Small storage unit and coffee table and dining room table inside and out side on terrace patio area. Beds were comfy if a little firm perhaps -I asked for extra pillows and duvet. Air con worked well! The bathroom was a little dated and 'practical', but the shower worked well and plenty of hot water. there was also a hairdryer in there, (health and Safety?) Plenty of towels and loo rolls!
The grounds were lovely very pretty and tidy manicured lawns and plants.
The pool area was clean with toilet facilities and changing room. There was also a masseuse you could book . The pool was cool but refreshing,there was a hot tub BUT NOT HOT! lots of sunbeds and plenty of shade to be found. For the children there was a swing and slide and pool tables and football table also.
We had breakfast included in our stay and it was basic continental. However they were very accommodating and if there was something they could provide they would do their best (as I'm vegetarian). Lots of fresh fruit and yogurt, cheeses, ham croissants and breads. tea and coffee.juices help yourself buffet.
We also ate in one evening 20 euros for buffet three course meal drinks not included. The bar had a wide variety of drinks and snacks served throughout the day.We purchased chips one night as we were peckish.
The staff were all lovely and helpful/friendly and most spoke English.
The down side was you had to take a cab to Alberfuria town -the hotel provided a shuttle bus if not leaving after breakfast collection around 3.30. or what we did is took the shuttle in at 3 and came back by cab after midnight.(14 euros) Be warned pre-book cab with hotel before hand 11 euros other wise you have to wait in a long q!
The beach was 10/15 minutes walk once we discovered the short cut -ask a local!
The shop was 8/10 minutes walk stocked EVERYTHING!
Local restaurants with in 15 minutes walk away so worked up an appetite en- route and sobered off on walk home! Good fish one and the Italian was a little disappointing due to staff incompetence!
Snack bars also on beach good plus toilets/showers. The beach was lovely, busy and the sea was cold but sand clean and beautiful sunsets to be snapped.
a totally what the doctor ordered chill out break with my lovely best friend we thoroughly enjoyed it and would go back again for a second visit. It did what it said on the tin!
