The hotel provides free pick-up from the ferry terminal (which is just a few minutes away), although the van seemed a little small considering the number of people headed there. We were welcomed with a very bizarre dance by hotel staff which was just unnecessary and which they did not seem to enjoy. Free cold towels and a drink upon arrival.
Room-wise, we requested for rooms in the new wing so it was great - rooms were spacious, cleaned every day, comfortable beds, towels provided, etc. I was afraid it would be noisy because of the large number of groups that stay there, but it was quiet enough. Our rooms overlooked the pool, and there were plenty of channels to choose from if you want to watch TV. The wi-fi signal was strong in the rooms and in most parts of the hotel.
There is a gym and a pool (although there is some construction going on in the middle) in the hotel - nothing particularly impressive, but it was good enough. Breakfast buffet was pretty good in terms of variety and quantity - there were different dishes on the two days we had breakfast there.
Service was excellent - the staff was extremely helpful and accommodating to our requests.
The only drawback was the distance from everything else. The hotel provides taxi services for about 240, 0000 Rp for a two-way trip to Nagoya Hills which is reasonable I guess, considering the city is 20-30 minutes away. You can try flagging taxis from the main road outside, but I'm not sure about the availability there - if you're in a group, the rates offered by the hotel should be pretty acceptable.
Overall a satisfactory stay, and I would come back.
