I loved Byblos sur Mer and would stay there again. You can't have a better location with better views of the Old Port or perfect walking distance to the restaurants and shops of the Old Souk and the amazing archaeological site of the Crusaders' Citadel. Yes, the pool is small, but my 9- and 12-year-old boys loved it and spent hours there. The deck also offers easy sea access. There is ice cream and chocolate mou (and other cafe food) on call. The seafood restaurant that juts into the sea is a beautiful location with good food.
For our 2-night family visit, we were deciding between Byblos sur Mer and Edde Sands and I felt that while Byblos sur Mer may lack a sandy beach, bigger aquatic facilities and a more 'resort' atmosphere, Byblos sur Mer more than made up for that with charm, character and warm, hospitable service--and the unbeatable location.
We were also upgraded upon check-in to a lovely suite on the top floor with a port view in view of the citadel that was very comfortable for a family of four and had great amenities: spacious bathroom, soaking tub and shower room, a welcome plate of fruit, sweets and wine, a balcony where we spent time relaxing, and fast wireless. The breakfast offers a wide variety of continental and Lebanese specialties both in a nicely laid out buffet as well as cooked to order. I would recommend this hotel for anyone who wants to stay in the heart of Jbeil.
