The photos on the website is absolutely deceiving, as the actual property is so run-down that it needs refurbishment immediately.
Cupboard doors are falling off the hinges, the sofa is uncomfortable to sit on and the covers feel and look like they have not been washed for a loooong time. They provide you with free wifi but tell you to open the balcony doors to receive better signal. When that didn't work, we were advised to use it in the lobby. And when that failed too, the excuse "try again after the rain" was given. In short, it was just painful trying to log onto the Internet.
The only reason we signed up with this place is because it could handle 7 people at a reasonable price. And yes, budget is probably the only rationale why you would pick this place.
However, there is one plus point - the proximity to the beach and that it is relatively quiet. I have stayed at many Bintan establishments and none is as quiet as this, unless you are in the top resorts paying top dollar.
