“Hotel with expensive wifi”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2014

Stay for a 2days 1night at this hotel and below my comments:

1. No wifi provided even at the hotel lobby. All the wifi service need to pay.
2. Not a very well maintained hotel. The furniture and wall paper in the room are looks old. The room are not bright enough.

The pro of the hotel:
Staffs are very friendly and the location are good.

Sentosa is a beautiful place to visit and I highly recommend it, just don't stay in this hotel. Our son was in a loft bed and complained just about every night he felt wet (we put this down to the humitidy). This was not the case as we discovered on our 10th night, there was mould on the mattress. I felt ill to my stomach as a parent and not listening to my son. Made a complaint and the manager put us in another room, same thing mould on the mattress. Got back to NZ and made a complaint via our Travel Agent (we had photos) who wrote a letter complaining about the situation and received a generic letter of apology, no where in the letter were the words mould. They have reimbursed us for one nights accommodation (what a joke).

We loved our stay at the Festive. We arrived in Singapore very early due to a flight mix up and the fantastic staff assisted with an early check in. My two boys lived the room and the overall feel of the place. The location is central to Sentosa's attractions and the use of the Hard Rock Hotel was an added bonus. We enjoyed our stay so much that we're booked in for another visit in two weeks time. I just hope the standard will be as good. Thanks to all :-)

We stayed here with 3 kids all aged under 6 years, mainly because the Family Loft room could accommodate the whole family in one room.

The room itself was fine and the combination of bedding worked for us. So did the slight separation between the kids quarters and the parents quarters.

The hotel was fine. Definitely not 5 star but a good family hotel (albeit it at Resort World prices). The staff were cheerful and helpful. They especially went out of their way to look after the kids.

Sharing the facilities of all Resort World hotels worked well with a magnificent swimming pool at Hard Rock and variety in dining spaces for breakfast amongst the various hotels. We ended up preferring the Hotel Michel for breakfast mainly because it was quieter and the staff were superb.

You cannot fault the location for acces to all that Sentosa and RW have to offer and the free monorail passes made access to the mainland of Singapore very easy, and a bit of an adventure for the children.

The biggest downside was the lack of free wifi which in today's world has become almost mandatory for hotels of any standard. Also, the room rates are not cheap for what essentially is a 4-star property and it makes you angry when you find out the sort of heavy discounts they offer guests who are casino patrons.

Very, very disappointed by the hotel! Booked and paid for a family of 4 and got bedding for 3 people with half a lounge that was rock hard which they call their family loft rooms! When phoned housekeeping to see when they were going to make up the bed, they tried charging us an extra $25 per night! They then delivered the linen and we made up the bed (no doona). We called daily to ask for towels, mugs and glasses for 4 people and after the 4th night we finally got them! I also asked for 2 wine glasses as none were provided and they said it was a $10 charge, I said forget it!! Wi-fi was ridiculously expensive! We had no room to move around and nowhere to put luggage for 4 people, along with minimal any hanging space! Very, very disappointed for such an expensive hotel!! Location however was very central.

Room Tip: Don't book it unless it's for a couple!!!

Average hotel, wouldn't return. Wifi is incredibly expensive, like $5/ hr or $30/24hrs.No face cloths in the bathroom drove my wife nuts. There are no wine glasses in the room and if you ring room service to get some they charge $5 and it will take "at least half an hour". We even sent my son down to the front desk to get some and they again said they would have to be delivered and would be at least 30mins.....Getting very thirsty at this stage. Location is good though and the family loft room does sleep 2 adults and 2 kids comfortably. Watch out for the pool towel charge if you don't return them.

Very much just to experience this space , since i have already tried a few of the others in Sentosa. Besides the much more vibrant colour theme in the room , it could have more interesting features. Having said that, the attractions are suppose to be all around the island , which makes sense. So its ok for a one time experience , and thats about it. What comendible was the pool , its surrounded with trees and cabana style shelter , that was why i spend half the time at the pool than in the room.

Room Tip: the family room with a sperate top deck bed provides more space than the normal room.
