Arrived at Waterfront Terminal Sunday and was picked up by their mini bus along with other guests. Greeted at hotel lobby with welcome drinks and towel.Thought that was a sign to the start of a good holiday. Check-in was a bit slow and counter staff missed out giving us meal voucher for the next day. Had to ask for it although it was included in package. By the way, standard of food in package is unexpectedly plain. Expected more. Proceeded to room & checked bedsheet below the comforter. It was badly stained with big blotches of disgusting yellow stuff. Pillow cases were yellow & musty. Had to ask housekeeping to change them. Food is expensive and standard of breakfast lost out to hotels we have been in other parts of Batam. We found dinner out of the hotel more worth the money. Don't expect a nice beach with clean sand to stroll on. "Beach" consisted of rocky and swampy areas with no clean sand in sight. There's also no sea sports. Most disappointing was the H-Spa. Lady at counter enticed us with weekday offer of massage plus choice of scrub. Booked appointment with her. Next morning, upon checking in for our spa session, she claimed that we should confine our choice of scrub to the Javanese Lulur. We declined and she finally agreed to allow the choice of strawberry & avocado scrub. The masseuse was in our opinion, not that good, and we found at the end of the session that they had mixed some white stuff into our bottles of scrub. We suspect it's the Javanese Lulur mixed into our strawberry and avocado scrub. There was a good three quarters of the avocado scrub plus white stuff left in the small bottle after the scrub. We took photo as proof. Not possible if they had used the actual avocado scrub alone. The place also looked run down and the tub was filthy. Feedback to lady at spa yielded no results. Don't think we will recommend anyone to this place after this experience.
