First of all, I must compliment the staff for their very attentive and warm services. The staff and one who even dressed up as a "Joker" attending to children, teaching them how to make paper animals, coloring etc. There are also the organised activities for adults such as cycling, water polo, jogging etc. The Saturday night pool side performance, with songs, dance items and guests' participation, is just as impressive.
Nice and clean rooms.... look like renovated recently. However, my room had a water heating problem. Heated water only lasted for half a minute but the ever polite technical staff told me that he could not tell what went wrong and had to check with his Chief Engineer. That was the last I heard from him. Anyway, couldn't be bothered about it anymore and had to make do with the lukewarm bath/shower.
My other disappointments are that the temporary gym was not open earlier in the morning for early risers like me and there was no sauna or steam bath near the pool area.
Food from the resort was definitely expensive....S$20 for a simple plate of grilled chicken chop. But my little girl liked it a lot especially with the butter fragrance and the nice mushroom sauce.
Overall, still a pleasant and relaxing stay.
