“Not a beach resort BUT a good family resort”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 25, 2013

I stayed here in Mar 2013 for 3D2N with my 3 kids. Aloha Loyang is really much better than Aloha Changi (don't confuse the two). The place feels safer as there is some access control driving into the resort and there is only one gate to the beach (which is closed at night for security reasons).

Aloha Loyang has various offerings. The terraces are for younger people who want to BBQ and party through the night. NOT for people who want some quiet and rest in a resort. The Garden View Bungalows are nice but they face the nearby private housing hence not so ideal. My personal favourite are the sea view bungalows. If you would like some nice quiet moments with the family, book early and choose the bungalows at the end of the road (Bungalow Number 12-15 perhaps).

Each bungalow is well endowed (they provide you with 2 blankets and towels per room) with air-coned 4 ensuite rooms (hence it can accomodate 8 persons). The unit comes with a living room, a dining room, a fully equipped kitchen (with a freezer, a fridge, a microwave, a stove, a double sink, pots, pens, knife, plates etc and even washing liquid for cleaning the plates), a common toilet (for guests so they don't use the toilets in the rooms), a small yard, a private driveway for parking your ride, an outdoor table for outdoor eating and a BBQ area. The resident supplier would even call you in the afternoon of checking in to see if you would like him to arrange BBQ stuff for you - quite reasonably priced.

The shared facilities includes a free form pool, a newly renovated indoor kids play room, an indoor arcade, a basketball court, and a small corner for foot reflexology. If you have kids below 12, the pool, playroom and arcade would appeal to them. There is a shop on site selling foodstuff (coffee, instant noodles, snacks) and they also rent out bicycles that you can take out for an hour, 2 hour or even overnight. The bikes can be used to explore the Pasir Ris Beach/Park just outside the backgate of the resort. The shopkeepers are very nice people if you talk to them.

The resort is out of the way. There is a free shuttle service takes takes guests in and out. For more shopping therapy, there is downtown east nearby that offers more serious dining, shopping, getting groceries and even a water theme park.

Having said all the good stuff, I would agree that the resort could do with more professional housekeeping. The walls are oily and stained (probaby from the BBQ and cooking). The toilets and rooms can sometimes be infested with ants, lizards and coackroaches. Afterall, it is a 'beach' resort of sorts so pests can somewhat be expected. The toilets are the most disappointing. The water pressure is poor, the toilet bowls are stained and looked dirty. One of my rooms had a resident lizards who greeted us each time we entered the room. The living room is also not air-coned and has old fashion furniture. It gets warm in the afternoon. The beds are not so comfortable as well and the pillows are quite stiff.

Finally, they have upgraded the TV (to flatscreen) recently so that is a plus. The resort also provides free wifi within each unit so i had no problems getting online anytime.

In summary, i would come back again although i wish they would clean up the place and make the toilets more comfortable - afterall, the toilet is oftentimes the most important place in the entire resort. For the price, the range of things you can do, the rooms, and the close proximity to the beach, i would say this is good value for money.

Room Tip: If you want some peace and quiet, go for the bungalows. they are stand alone buildings with your own...

Costa sands pair ris is a very nice place to spend with your family and friends. Place is very well maintained. Great for outing. They have barbecue pit outside each villa. Rooms are very nice. Some already upgraded to modern interiors but some still are not. But when it comes to cleanliness and value for money, I truly recommend this place,

Room Tip: Choose a room near the restaurant and swimming pool for a better wifi access

to be honest, i didnt find it too bad...i mean for the price i paid,i don't expect first class service or facilities.consider ourselves that the air-cons are even functioning properly.i also found it a good point that the barbeque pit in front of the chalet is very convenient as you can easily grab frozen food that may be heavy from the freezer(also a well-functioning facility) to the pit.however i must say that cleanliness issues are present.of course i didnt expect 5 star cleanliness when i booked it.on the whole....not a bad accomadation for one who is looking for a lively gathering with friends or family.not advisable for people seeking a relaxing/quiet getaway.and last but not least,to all those idiots complaining about poor service,poor cleanliness vice-versa,if you really want those services and standards you demand at a budget price then keep dreaming :D

You get what you pay for but I expected at least some privacy. The walls are so thin and the adjoining door between my room and the next was so flimsy I could hear every word of my neighbours. That was bad enough but the party they were having went on until 6am despite the "noise curfew" mentioned in the resorts blurb. I complained but it was a waste of time. One night a group of youths decided to spend some time on my patio drinking and talking loudly at about 1am until I told them to [--] off. To be fair they did shout an apology as they ran off.
Not recommended if you want some peace and quiet at night.

Absolutely unsuitable for occupants. Rooms are very smelly, moldy, poorly lit and dirty toilets. I wonder who's idea to built cemented BBQ pits in front of every rooms making the whole place smoked up, floors stained with cooking oil and disgusting burnt after smell in the morning with gardens swamped by birds ransacking rubbish bins for BBQ leftovers.
Beds are uncomfortable. Disgusting kitchen sink in room within feet from beds.
How on earth can the health authorities allow this place to operate with such fire risks and dirty rooms that pose a danger to the safety and health of its occupants?
I strongly DO NOT recommend to anyone, couple or family to stay there.

Room Tip: Do not recommend at all.

Premise is not maintained & smelly, & facilities like plumbing & electric points are spoilt. Adjacent neighbors can be a nuisance if they are rowdy & inconsiderate. There should be security guards policing the area on a regular & frequent basis to arrest rowdy & noisy tenants quickly. BBQ pits can be improved & upgraded with newer ones.

Booked this hotel hotel online for 01 night stay on our way to Cambodia..
We arrived early in the morning & as there were no rooms available for early check in, we have to leave our luggage there & come back by 1400 hrs..

Rooms were in a very bad state, Linen was not clean, bathroom was dark & was not clean. Not even a bottle of water supplied.. The worst part was that the singing & banging in the next chalet went through till 0200 hrs until we gave a complaint at the reception.

This place is good for Singaporeans coming to BBQ evenings..
