“Great location but...”
Reviewed 25 September 2013 via mobile

Rooms are specious with great view over the sea, the balcony was too dusty, swimming pool was very clean with beautiful surround
services was very poor and unprofessional and the hotel is too noisy during the night (2 weddings)
Overall we enjoy our stay at byblos sur mer

This place gets the thumbs-up from me. If the hotel was located in Europe, I would give it four stars instead of five but in my experience, nice hotels with good staff (no attitude) seem quite rare in this aera and we had a few bad experiences.

We checked-in at 4 o'clock in the morning but the lady at the counter was gracious, polite and very welcoming. We liked the tastefully decorated, spacious room and the very good bathroom. The bed was comfortable, the one thing I didn't like was the air con that was turned on to the max, when I stepped into the room it was like stepping inside a fridge.

We ordered room service for breakfast the next day and I have to say it was excellent: very good patries choice, excellent egg dish.

The beach isn't fantastic but generally speaking the hotel is very well located in the old town of Byblos. We will return back!

If you like extraordinary sunsets, small port towns, seaside restaurants, and old souks, then this hotel is is in the middle of it all. Make sure to book sea- facing rooms for great sunsets daily.
The port is just below the hotel , offers short boat trips to the Mediterranean for a small 6$. Just below the hotel is the famous Mexican restaurant, El-Molino, and the old souks and old Phoenician fortress lie a short walking distance of 10 minutes.

First the positive points: beautiful hotel, splendid location, very helpful and professional service, and a wonderful restaurant inside the Mediterranean.
But it is too expensive for what it provides:
the internet connection was really lousy
the check out time could not be extended after 1.00 pm even although we were staying in
an executive room
the toilets and the shower were smelly when we first came in
they provided only 1 nescafe bag for 2 people !!!!!
In conclusion it is a beautiful hotel and a nice location but it is not a good value for money

Room Tip: choose the room 211, it is at the end of the corridor, so you don't have neighbours on the right...

This hotel is situated just in front of the harbour of byblos and where all the nightlife of cafes, bars and redtaurants .it is very nice,the breakfast is very rich, and it is on a walking distance of everything in jbeil.it doesn't have a real swimming pool(it is too small)but u can just swim in the sea.
It is a five stars hotel in a recommended location in jbeil.and it has the best fish restaurant in the area.delicious!

We have just stayed at Byblos sur Mer and ABSOLUTLY loved it. Our room was beautiful,immaculately clean and very comfortable. We didn't have a balcony but we had a huge window with a gorgeous view.
The sunbathing area was great, comfortable loungers which were also very light therefore easy to move. My husband loved swimming in the sea while I could cool off in the small shallow (children's?) pool.
The breakfast was very good with a lot of choice both local and international.
We had a wonderful lunch in the restaurant overlooking the sea, the grilled calamari was delicious.
The staff at BSM were all very friendly, very efficient and very professional, nothing was too much trouble for them and we were treated very well by everyone. We look forward to returning to this wonderful place.

We had the same ghastly noisy wedding experience as the previous reviewers but in fairness to the hotel they did forewarn us. However, for the most part the service was surly and stuffy and food hugely overpriced. Room excellent with super view over the Med. breakfast average.

Room Tip: Don't stay on a wedding night!
