8/10 Very good

We stayed in the home pod room. Which was a clean, basic room that had all ameneties we needed. Excellent value for the price paid. Beach front hotel with well maintained grounds and a lovely pool. Quiet hotel but on the main road and close to all of aruam bays restaurants etc would definatley stay again.

10/10 Exceptional

We really enjoyed our time at PodBay, we used the pool lots and the sun loungers. It is right on the beach so if you want a swim in the waves you can just walk out to them or stay by the pool. Our cabin was lovely and the air con worked really well. We were looking for somewhere to relax for a few days and it was perfect. The staff were helpful and friendly too.
