I stayed here with some friends for a short 2 day 1 night trip. Location wise, it's quite favourable, being about 40 minutes from the city center, where there's not much to do anyway.
The waters are decently clear, and I enjoyed myself very much with the water sports (about $14 SGD/person for banana boating) and the staff were always very polite and helpful, making sure that we stayed safe.
Resort food was pricey, so we ate out most of the time. The one buffet breakfast we had was all sorts of terrible, with a limited spread and substandard quality. Go out for a seafood dinner at any one of the nearby places, you'll find much better food at better prices.
We had a room on the ground floor that cost $230++ SGD/night which I felt was expensive for the lackluster quality. It was nice to open the door to the beach, but the toilet, although spacious, had a terrible stench that smelled like the sewerage. Also, an iguana sneaked in from under the front door at one point and it was absolutely horrifying. The air-conditioning was a bit faulty and was hardly cold enough, but it was bearable for a night.
All in all, it's a rather peaceful place, but could do with some maintenance and brushing up of its facilities and food.
