We had a welcome from Harris staff when arrive at the Waterfront - they collect our passports and we need not queue to clear immgration.
The hotel is just five min away. But the hotel is fully booked so we can only check in at 2 pm.
It is a pleasant surprise that we had a free pizza or set lunch for 2 vouchers per room. There is also free shuttle voucher for day trip to town. 11 am and 2pm respectively.
But the hotel is v crowded with a few group of company conference going on...the waiters are too busy to attend us. And the General Manager has personally helped to serve us!
Their friendly smiles make cool us a bit.
The rooms are clean , athough the bedding is a bit old. The room can cater for 3 adult. We ask for a king size bed and there is a sofabed avaliable too. The bathroom is ok.
The kids enjoy the dino kid room. There is adequate toys to keep them occupied. We take a taxis ( 70k ruppiat) to go Mega Mall. The CJO Donut is a must to try... cost around $4 for 6 donuts. Dont keep overnight , it is good to eat fresh on the same day. The Timezone is really cheap , with 20cents per game.. must go!
Our kids visit the hotel pool but there is leaves floating around. Not v clean. with dragonfly above our heads. The weather is very windy and rainy so we only stayed a while.
For lunch. Try the hotel pizza - very crispy and they used traditional oven to bake ( with real firewood).
The resort is cheery and no complaints except it is very crowded . The checkout for the company group is not organised properly and nearly miss their ferry . the counter staff is too busy handling them that they ignore us.....until the General Manager step in to request someone to sent us to the ferry terminal.
I can recommend the hotel for a short getaway. it is relaxing and comfortable.
by the way, the hotel charges food on SGD.
