Stayed here in October with my girlfriend... We got the rate through Groupon voucher, which was rather cheap for a Bintan stay.... Here's why:
On our way to the hotel (which was quite far from the ferry terminal), our mini bus broke down in the middle of nowhere... Those who had been to Bintan, you should know how dim and dark their roadside were... About 20 guests were stranded for over 30mins... While some complained that they were bitten by mosquitoes or grumbled for the late back-up transfer, I was more concerned about our safety... What if a high-speed vehicle could not see us by the roadside under the dim lights?? And there was a strong petrol smell coming out from the mini bus while we waited... I was hoping that it would not explode...
Checking-in was quite fast upon arrival... The hotel and rooms were quite old and run down... I did not take any pictures of the room as I did not like it... Room was rather spacious with a balcony and bath tub in the washroom... Our room was facing the sea and pool, which I thought it would be much nicer if this hotel was not so run down... The sunrise was gorgeous and that was the only picture I took at the hotel... Staff and service were average... Wi-fi connection was available only in the common premises like the restaurant and lobby... I did not try any of the facilities in this hotel...
Having said that, I did enjoy their room service food and the variety of their TV channels... If you are a big Hindi movie and MTV fans like me, you would like this hotel... Other than that, I do not see any other reason for coming back here...
