pleasant day at pleasant bay

Great location and plenty to see in the area. Folks at reception desk very helpful and friendly. The breakfast was ok but not great as far as selection goes. We enjoyed the room, location and ability to walk around the complex. They have a nice pool and we enjoyed playing shuffle board. Would stay here again

Family Activities

The medium-size outdoor pool, with a depth between 4 to 10 feet, is heated. The pool is situated within a garden-like setting, making it feel more like an oasis than a hotel pool. The pool is surrounded by greenery, lounge chairs and tables with umbrellas, and there is also a large hot tub. The pool is open from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. and pool towels are provided.

Somewhat hidden within the garden area that surrounds the pool, guests will find Ping-Pong and shuffleboard, which kids will love when taking a break from swimming. A large playground can be found in a wooded area as well and there is a small game arcade room.

A small, sandy beach is about a quarter-mile away from Pleasant Village Bay and guests can bike or drive to the beach.

Family Dining

Served off the lobby area, guests can enjoy a full-service breakfast (fee) from 8 to 11 a.m. every day from June through September and on the weekends in May and October.

For a poolside lunch, families can visit the cabana right next to the pool for a sandwich or salad. The cabana is open from noon to 3 p.m. every day in July and August.

Getting There

Getting Around
Families can easily bike or drive to the nearby beach and town. Pleasant Village Bay sits on a windy roadway that doesn't offer much of a shoulder or sidewalk, however. A vehicle is needed to venture further off the hotel property.
