We stayed here based on other reviews, and picked a nice place. It is well out of the tourists walking about, although not far removed at all. If you are looking to relax with an awesome view of the bay in a quiet place away from the crowds, this is it. A very clean place, with very helpful staff. We didn't have enough time to spend relaxing on the deck because we had only a few packed days of activities. We stayed in the regular hotel, not the townhouses. It looks like a decent pool to cool off in, although we didn't check it out. The breakfast that was included was also a big factor in booking the Bayview, as I like a buffet to please everyone's tastes, as well as being convenient. On both mornings there was a hot entree, along with a super assortment of pastries, danish, breads, fruits, yogurt, and more. Everything was delicious, freshly made, and they must have a superb chef. The afternoon cookies were homemade and amazing also. The only thing I didn't care for was the furniture - very old fashioned and not the type most people like. The bathroom was nicely updated except for the mirror. The carpet seemed new. I think they would make travelers extra happy with some upgrades. Aside from that, I would definitely recommend staying here.
