    close to the beach

    it was a clean hotel, nice staff, very close to restaurants and the beach. I would not stay here again due to the sand fleas, that do not affect everyone but certainly did myself. They did not bite my husband at all. I also would not stay here again due to the uncomfortable bed. If you are not picky about biting insects and a very hard bed this hotel is clean, staff is friendly and you are right near the beach. They also have a nice pool and plenty of ice.

    Cons: spray for sand fleas and purchase of new mattresses and perhaps a bedspread or comforter.

    Location: You are just a short walk from the beach. plenty of beach chairs and towels, plenty of amazing restaurants to walk to. Small grocery to walk to.

    A gem in the middle of Orient Beach!

    Overview: The Blue Bay Hotel is a gem in the middle of Orient Beach! This small boutique hotel is conveniently located close to the beach and convenience stores. Access to the beach was by a 25 meter walk through some coconut trees to the Bikini Beach bar. Guests could use the chairs at Bikini Beach for free. Even though it is in the middle of Orient it was surprisingly quiet, although on some nights (e.g. Friday, Saturday) you could hear music from the beach bars. Facilities: The hotel was very clean and well maintained. The staff were friendly and helpful. The room was huge and nicely decorated (see photos). The bathrooms were basic (I think this is common European hotels). Rooms on the 1st floor opened to the pool area. The pool area was secured so you could go to the beach by locking your front door and exiting/entering the pool area via a passcode on the locked gate. The pool was small and relaxing; few guests used the pool as the hotel was so close to the beach. The kitchen was well-equipped (mini-fridge, microwave, pots/pans, stove top, toaster, and plates, etc.). Areas for Improvement: Generally nothing was amiss at this place and I will definitely be coming back! The only one annoying thing was that the floors are not soundproofed, so if the guest above moves the chairs around or walks in their shoes you will be awaken by the racket … so maybe get a room on the 2nd floor. Some minor areas to improve would be: Mosquito nets for the beds. Mosquitos can get into the

    Pros: Close to Orient beach but still quiet!

    Cons: Mosquito nets that guests can set-up over their beds.

    Location: Very close (25 m) to Orient Beach and all the activities. Guests can use beach chairs on the beach for free (they usually cost ~$10/day).

    5/5 Excellent
