There is not a single thing we could fault with this hotel. We booked our room through a groupon deal and found it to be the greatest value. As young first time travellers, we where seeking a quiet and relaxing getaway. By the Sea was the perfect choice, situated on a quiet private beach. Our room was huge with airconditioning...

The volume of low power motorbikes and crazy drivers is a recipe for disaster. The property is on the largely undeveloped...

We live in the country in Canada and therefore, appreciate peace and quiet when we are travelling. With only 36 suites in the entire hotel, By the Sea was the place for us. We can’t say enough good things about the staff who go out of their way to please their guests. The staff was always courteous and met our...

We enjoyed a great stay at By the Sea. The hotel is beautifully situated in the peaceful Cape Panwa overlooking the bay with an amazing view. The rooms are spacious and very well kept and the free wifi connection in the room worked great. The staff were very helpful and friendly and offered a great service in every way.

Very spacious, clean and comfortable room with excellent view. Able to see the Big Buddha from my seaview room. Staffs very friendly and efficient. Liked the hotel but not the location. Very far and expensive taxi fare when travelling.
