I have stayed in bintan beach cabana for a few nights, I would not recommend staying this resort unless you are on tight budget or business, or you really really want to be surrounded by nothing.
First of all, it is really far from ferry terminal, 40-50 mins drive. The pool in the hotel itself is an-useable. The water is so murky and dodgy that I simply did not dare to step into the pool. Wifi internet – is only in the lobby. Only one restaurant and no bar in the hotel, or anywhere near.
Agra – hotel nearby, that you can go by bus (good 10-15 mins drive – means you can’t really walk there) and has shared facilities but pretty much has nothing going on there. There is a pool as well, but it is really small, and simply there isn’t anything exciting about the place at all. During the day though you could book some water sports activities in Agro. No bars there too. But there is a seafood restaurant.
About the room in cabana, surprisingly it was pretty decent, quite large. Channels on TV are very limited, only 1 English channel. Every room has a balcony and I suppose that’s quite nice. Another unpleasant factor was that my bathroom had a really bad smell of something, I couldn’t quite figure out what it was, but the staff would come constantly to put something in the drain so it smells less...
No supermarkets or shops around, if you do choose to go – be sure to bring your own reading materials – as literally there is nothing else there to do, then have sit in the lobby and use wifi or read...
Another good point... literally there is almost no beach next to the hotel, although it is located by the sea – actual beach doesn’t exist pretty much. There is a piece of land about 5 meters long right at the end of the hotel territory (which isn’t that large) where probably only about 4-5 people could lay their towels on the sand. Water is pretty clear but full of seaweed...
