“Beautiful stay & location”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 May 2012

We had booked 2 nights but given I forgot to ring back and confirm the booking the day before, the room was given away so we only stayed 1 night. It was a lovely big room with the largest shower -big enough for our family of 4 (and probably fit another family of 4!) We arrived early (at 8am) to check in our bags given we spent the night just at a hotel down the road. Juan at reception has fantastic English and he told us what was in the area and invited us to have breakfast for free at the hotel! Renting bikes to go riding along the beach, right in front of the hotel was also free (though there are no baby seats for children 2 and under). Location was great but also there are amazing sights to see in the area. We got to go into a park (they only allow 200 people in a day) and swam in some of the most breathtaking gorges with our children- thanks Juan for the tip! A great, comfortable family stay which was good value and highly recommended.

Away from the bustling city center and train station, takes about 20 mins on taxi to reach this oasis by the Qi Xing lake.

We booked the place for the likeness to Greek island theme and they did quite a good job in bringing out that Aegean "blue and white" atmosphere. Room was decent, and nicely decorated with touch of the mediterranean. We opted for a balcony and it stare right at the rising sun above the horizon in the morning, cool! There is a very big terrace on the top of the hotel overlooking the sea which is nice to chill out with a beer with family and friends.

Breakfast was ok and staff was pretty good. Hotel is good for couples, or family with many activities to engage in. Hiking, cycling and water games are abundance, but the view of sea and mountains are the real deal.

Spent two nights here. Best to have a car, else it could be inconvenient. Hualien city was a short drive away and the food in Hualien is really good!

The hotel interior was impressive, with nautical accents everywhere. Breakfast was alright. We received excellent service from the reception, who helped us a lot.

Taroko Gorge is about half-hour drive away. Good base to check out Taroko (which is known as Tailuge in Mandarin!)

Room Tip: Choose the one that faces the sea

We stayed here two nights on our vacation to Taiwan. What a great experience at Hotel Bayview. Even though it was cloudy the entire time you can't beat staying right on the ocean. Our room was high up and facing the ocean. You could sit in the bathtub and look out for a nice ocean view. Room wasn't huge but we weren't spending a lot of time in the room, just mainly for sleeping. The breakfast was great! I loved the variety and especially the fresh local foods and milk. I also loved the little coffee bar in front where we could stop in any time and get a nice hot cup of coffee or tea. Plenty of parking for our car right across from the front of the hotel. The staff was always helpful and friendly. This is definitely our place to stay next time we come back to Hualien.

This place has a great view of the ChingSing Bay, facing the Pacific Ocean.
Not to miss the sunrise at 5am and enjoy the seabreeze while walking along the coastline.
The staff are friendly and helpful. You can engage transportation services via the hotel which is cheaper. They arranged a female driver for me, knowing that I came to Taiwan alone. The rooms and facilities are very clean. Breakfast is simple with fresh food and much better than the hotel that I stayed in Taipei. This hotel is a 15 min drive to Hualien City and 30 min drive to Taroko.

Room Tip: Please try to book well in advance to get a sea view room. Note that there is not many stalls selli...
