Stayed here for 1 night to "test" the hotel out (we are looking for short weekend getaway places near sg)
The location is near the ferry terminal and away from town, which we like.
We checked in with no issues and there was a welcome "song & dance" performance. Not sure if this is normal. It was kinda tacky, but the staff showed energetic enthusiasm! Hubby didn't find it funny though, because he couldn't communicate properly with reception (loud music).
We had a game of bowling and walked around the grounds. Didn't use other facilities. Disappointed with the beach... not quite as expected.
Food at the cafe was so-so and a bit pricey. Meals were not served hot... seemed like they been ready for a while before serving.
We had a room at the new wing facing the sea. Room was basic but ok. Beds comfortable. Would have slept well if not for loud music that was playing outside our room until the wee hours of the morning.
Overall, the service staff were friendly and gave a good vibe about the hotel.
