Free on the beach hotels in Azerbaijan – 2022. Prices and reviews

Hotels with own beach in Azerbaijan

This is a really nice hotel! but the room was very small for a 5 star hotel, the pool and the beach were closed. – This was not mentioned when we booked it.

Worked at Buddha Bar Beach as a hookah master, the place is awesome. The hotel itself isn’t bad either, but not up to 5 stars.

The hotel is very well received by our staff and the receptionists are very friendly, they speak English, Russian, Spanish, and German. Breakfast was a really good value 5, always fresh fruit, choice of 5 cereals, 10 types of cereals, coffee and over a dozen types of tea.

Rooms had a large dressing room, TV, wifi, dark curtains if the room overlooks the sea (remote control!), heated floors, cleaning at 5+, 24 hour room service (help with any questions)

Decent hotel on the coast of the Caspian Sea. Spacious rooms with stunning views, panoramic windows in the rooms and bathroom, air conditioning throughout the hotel, restaurant and terrace saves you in the 45-degree heat.

Came to relax on the beach and the hotel grounds. Great service, polite and attentive staff. The beach and pool area are clean and tidy. Fitness and Spa with several pools.

The bottom is not deep – in the area of the buoys you can safely stand. Scenery: ship’s crane and oil derricks. (Crane on the last day sailed away). On the beach itself, only 4 umbrellas (mid-September and +30 outside-a single cloud).

On the territory of the hotel umbrellas 6. On request to add – the answer: ‘net umbrella’ :) a beach from a mix of sand and shells – without flip-flops to walk at least uncomfortably. For 5 days I have not seen once that it was cleaned.

Even with a good signal level can not load anything. But it is true, sometimes even on the beach signal did not get for a long time. Restaurant – a separate song: not tasty and expensive.

Large comfortable beds. Clean. Breakfast was varied. Ten minutes from the historical center of Baku.

We stayed in June 2016, the hotel is being repaired. A lot of things have already been changed and renovated. The hotel has been renovated, a lot of things have been changed and upgraded, but the service suffers.

Breakfasts go well! Excellent food, four pools on the territory of the hotel (one of them VIP, VIP rooms have free access, otherwise the entrance fee is 10 Azn), the beach has sun beds, and arbors, cottages.

The place is picturesque, right on the shore of the Caspian Sea. Everything is neat and tidy inside, the staff is attentive and polite. A great option for a summer vacation on a budget!

We were given a large room and a wide balcony overlooking the water park. Worked quickly and without a hitch. Included breakfast and entertainment at the water park including more billiards and ping pong. Cons: Faulty plumbing.

Terrible place, open paid changing rooms, no showers, dirty pool, pool waiter tried to cheat us by adding 10% to each item on the menu, not giving us a check, not giving us change

Used to be a great place, only now the amenities are not the same, service is weak, old furniture, weak breakfast.

Very hospitable and attentive staff. The staff were friendly and helpful. If you want to rent a room with a sea view, be prepared for music from 11am to 12am. In the evenings there are all sorts of banquets, from birthdays to weddings.

Other rooms face the highway. The hotel is small with only 30 rooms. Bathrobes, slippers, fridge, safe, hairdryer, kettle, tea, coffee, water. The prices in the restaurant are a bit high for Baku, but the portions are big and very tasty.

One portion can be taken for two. The sea is a little shallow, as in Catalonia, in September is warm and very gentle. Smooth in the morning, in the evening with a wave. To the city 10 minutes by cab 5-8 manat or bus 0,25 manat.

The hotel is decent, a real 4 stars, the rooms are good, frankollernoe air conditioning, the staff is friendly kind,

We bought fish from fishermen once and we cooked it ourselves. The sea is shallow, sandy, very suitable for small children. Umbrellas, sun loungers, towels are included in the cost, the beach are spacious, however at times unfortunately the garbage catches.

Many, where rested and never left a review, but such hospitality simply cannot leave without attention! I would like to express my thanks, respect and appreciation to Nusrat, the owner of Del mar hotel! Thank you for the cozy room, attentive staff, delicious food in the restaurant, clean beach and a great time. Despite the fact that the hotel has just opened, you can see that people are investing.

Also, the playground is very small and right under the sun. This is a small thing and I think over time, the problems will be solved. The staff is friendly and diligent. I give 4 points only for the lack of internet on those days.

Just opened, several cabins are ready, but most are unfinished, the area is not complete. Rooms are very spacious and quite comfortable, although there are some loose ends. The internet worked intermittently.

The staff is very friendly and helpful. Hotel restaurant: breakfast was good, included in the price. Lunch and dinner were a bit on the expensive side, portions were small and many items were off the menu.

I did not have an alternative, because neighbouring cafes Seeside and Beluga are even more expensive and farther away. You can take a bus or a cab to the supermarket and cook yourself, but it’s too far and inconvenient.

Reviews of tourists about the rest at the sea in Azerbaijan

Beach recreation in Azerbaijan has significant advantages :

  • This country has a more developed tourist infrastructure – hotels and service is better than in the Astrakhan region, Dagestan or Kazakhstan.
  • There is a good bus service between the suitable beach resorts and Baku. The cost of the ticket ranges from 3 to 15 AZN and depends on the distance of the trip. Buses run strictly on schedule. There are also shuttle buses along the coast – they leave as they fill up.

An undeniable plus for many tourists is good shopping. Holidaymakers advise to bring from Azerbaijan carpets, beautiful bags, tablecloths and carpet holders for dishes. As gifts, tourists also bring Armud glasses, jewelry, wooden carved backgammon, local embossing, samovars, oil lamps and items of national clothing. Of food and drink popular are jam, oriental sweets, honey, quince paste, Azerbaijani wines and liquors. Any souvenirs are more profitable to buy in the markets, for example, the Baku indoor market Sharg Bazary.

According to tourists, holidays in Azerbaijan by the sea is not deprived of drawbacks:

  • The only convenient way to the Caspian resorts is by plane. It takes too long to go by train. The road from Moscow takes more than two days.
  • Practically all the well-appointed beaches are paid, and the prices can’t be called low. In addition, you are not allowed to bring your own food and drinks on the beaches.
  • On many beaches of Caspian coast of sand is mixed with shell, and it is uncomfortable for small children to walk on it. In some places, there is a lot of algae in the water.
  • The main religion in the country is Islam. This imposes restrictions on the behavior of tourists on the beaches and in resort areas. Girls are expected to wear modest clothing. Smoking and drinking alcohol in public places is not welcomed. At many resorts in Azerbaijan created separate beaches for women and men.

Despite the minuses, the rest at the sea in Azerbaijan in 2022 will leave you with pleasant impressions. It is only important to plan a trip in advance and choose the right resort.
