“Club Med Bintan rocks!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 16, 2014 via mobile

Club Med Bintan still rox no matter how many times I've been here. Was here during Dec 2013 and stayed for 3 days with my best friend. Unfortunately we can't stay for NYE celebration n had to leave on 31st dec evening. However the cocktail session was beautifully done.. n at least we had a feel of nye.

When we arrived, as usual we were welcomed by happy faces from the GOs. Furthermore this time our room was slightly sea facing with a side lounging area and we loved it!
Housekeeping was prompt when we needed to have the two combined beds separated into 2 single beds. Excellent!

Although the weather wasn't too good. .but the GOs kept us entertained all the time with indoor activities n games.

Performance every night was entertaining as always! Mike frm Australia was comedic n hilarious in his performance on stage n very hospitable off stage as well.

Due to rain last day, we've decided to follow Johnny (fitness instructor) for abs training in view of burning away all the sumptous buffet food we've devoured those days! Indeed he was professional with his training and encourage us to go all the way!

It was nice to chat with the many talented GOs all over the world. . Manage to chat with Guy frm SA n realised he could speak so many languages making everybody so happy to hear their native language frm a foreigner.. such as japanese, korean, mandarin..

Overall the guys were very hospitable n made sure we enjoyed our stay in clubmed. We will always come back here! !

Monkeys, eagles, squirrels, starry nights, music, dance, shows, mountain bike, flying circus, mini club for my daughter, the quiet paths in the village with tropical trees and flowers on both sides – all these made my holiday a perfect one.

GOs are really gentle, nice, hardworking and enthusiastic. To name a few, Laurence-Land sports, Ada- China PR, Mindy-mini club. Also, those whose names I did not know. The Japanese girl who works in the flying circus. The slim girl who dances really well and shows up every night on the stage like a superstar. Those leading dancers in front of the swimming pool and on the stage at the bar. It is THEM who make Bintan Island a place that I would not forget.

Food is good- with such a variety and display, esp. the new year eve lobster dinner.

You do not have to worry about anything. Just RELAX and HAVE FUN!

Wow. Had a brilliant week in bintan with a fantastic energetic GO team who continually entertained us 24/7! Thanks to u all: mike, Ansley, jojo , Brendan, Mei, sumit, Ahmed, vux, Jason, Francesca , johnny, wayan, and rest of team. First club med trip but certainly not my last. Hope to see u guys again!!
The only problem is accommodation in entry level rooms was very dreary for a five star hotel! Had an opportunity to see better seafaring rooms due to late checkout request and I can see how spending just a little more on rooms will have guests feeling that their money was well spent.

Our family, 10 adults, 10 children recently had a 7 night stay here. From start to finish it was fantastic. The staff were very friendly and helpful, and nothing was a problem for them. The food was excellent, with plenty of choices from different nations. New Year's Eve and New Year's Day the seafood was fantastic. There are plenty of activities to get involved in, and the staff at the spa kept us very relaxed. A wonderful holiday for families. The ferry trip from Singapore was very rough, but the return trip was smooth.

Spent New Years with family at Bintan. Kids had fun with plenty of activities with the trapeze a big hit. Our only disappointment was that the Carlsberg was light beer and the wine was nearly not drinkable. The wives loved the Aqua aerobics with Johnny and Guy. Mike was a top bloke as well and a great host. I'm thinking of signing up though I'm not sure if I could give tennis lessons, aerobic instructions and balance ladders off my head in the evening cabaret.

It was my second time in Bintan Island. If you are a Club Med regular, you'll see that Bintan is not as exciting at night as other villages. I still loved it though - GOs are of course amazing. But in the summer, the smokes from Indonesia come and they carry the rain over. I hate it when I go to a Club Med and it rains, so if you are flexible with time, don't go there in June/July. It rained half of the time I was there.
The golf course was absolutely stunning. My mom has played golf for thirty years and she said it was the second best golf course she's ever seen. The golf GOs are nice, too. They even invited us to their golf dinner which was so fun!
The beach is as beautiful as always. I just wished more people would stay up at night, but Bintan is a more family village so almost everyone is gone by 11:30 unlike other villages like Phuket or Bali. But I always love Club Med!

The place was great. But what makes it awesome were the staffs( GO & GE). Without them and their wonderful dedication, club med bintan would just be like any other resorts. Great place to relax n also have fun. For those who expect to have ONLY a luxurious hotel with elegant 5 star rooms then this is not for you.
Great job especially to:
Johnny
Michael
Daud
And all the GOs & GEs.
You guys are awesome. We will make club med bintan one of our favorite place n share with our friends n family. Cheers
