We come back to the Bay Resort just about every year. We are always greeted by a friendly staff and enjoy the calm retreat of the bay. We prefer the quiet of the bay side but the ocean is a short walk away.

Go every year -- all is excellent. Great location, being by the bay is wonderful. Great sunsets. Great location. But it is the employees that make the difference. They are friendly, and make you feel at home.
