Good - pool was huge, definitely the highlight of the resort. although when i was swimming with my goggles i noticed a lot of moss underneath the pool which meant they havent been cleaning it properly.
- a lot of activities in the hotel
- staff were very friendly and always smiling. this was admirable. they also greeted you when you bump into them.
- buffet breakfast selection was not bad
Bad - we stayed at the old wing thus our rooms were dated. crying for a renovation.
- the exterior of the old wing looks really old and dated and looks misplaced beside the new wing. they should also get rid of that harris resort sign on top of the hotel which is so very outdated.
- naturally as the hotel was old, the hallways and the rooms smelled a bit funky.
- very far from anything. you have to take taxi or the hotel shuttle to nagoya shopping center. this was really an inconvenience although the taxi fare wasnt really that expensive especially if there are 3 or 4 of you taking the cab. from sekupang terminal to harris resort, it's 80,000 rupiah. from harris resort to nagoya, it's 130,000 rupiyah.
We only stayed over the weekend at the hotel so my review above is based on our short stay. on the way back to singapore we took the ferry from batam center instead of sekupang as we went back to nagoya after checking out. the crowd at the departure hall in batam center was ridiculous. so many people probably because a lot of people usually spend the weekend in batam. the terminal couldnt accomodate. there were so many people that the guards turned off the x-ray machine or else it would further delay the queue. so you can imagine how this compromised their safety and inspection procedures.
