“Average tourist attraction”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 28, 2012

There's not much too see in this place. Dirty beach with an awful stench, average amusement park (Dufan), average Sea World, pretty much average everything.

“A beach, an amusement park, and more”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 26, 2012

The amusement park has many activities, nothing spectacular, but not a disappointment either. A typical park that would keep kids (and adults) entertained for hours. A long queue is typical just like any other amusement park in the weekend, public holidays or student vacation. There is also a not-so-great beach in the area, a water adventure park, dolphin shows. Keep in mind that the amusement park has a separate entry fee in addition to the main gate fee. There are also 2 hotels inside the area.

“All-in leisure area”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 21, 2012

I've been to Ancol a few times but the places I've been to in Ancol are only Dunia Fantasi (theme park) and Bandar Djakarta (seafood restaurant).
The theme park is nice for families or those who like to go to theme parks. Rides are quite varied.
My family love to eat seafood at Bandar Djakarta. It's a huge restaurant with outdoor-seating facing the sea / river. You pick your own seafood and they will cook it based on your request.
If it's your birthday, the staff will gather at your table and sing a local version of 'Happy Birthday'.
It's good to make reservations first since it's always packed at night but even if you don't, the wait is usually not that long as the service is quick and efficient.
And before you enter Ancol, you are required to pay entrance fee for each person including the vehicle (if you're driving). Once inside, the entrance fees depend on which attractions you go to.
