I used to enjoy spending the weekend at Harris Waterfront for massage and R&R but this weekend's experience left me utterly disappointed, frustrated and changed my mind completely. The staff were not only unfriendly (not a smile on their faces...boy this was my first surprise cos they were always so friendly on my previous visit), 1 of their reception staff was downright rude and condescending when we enquired about our boarding passes. How would we know they have changed their practice that now guests have to collect our boarding passes from the ferry terminal? I don't mind doing that at all, just have to explain to me properly and politely. There was also a big function at the pool area as well as some bollywood "singing" at the Trendy Wing lobby. Both were noisy enough to spoil my rest and relax. I'm thankful though that they managed to change our room from right in front of the pool party to the back, otherwise I would not only not be able to rest but would probably end with a blooming headache. After this weekend's experience, I am striking Harris Waterfront out completely!
