“romantic getaway”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 27, 2012

Book the resort direct from the hotel. 45 min from Tanjong Pinang ferry terminal.
Choose the Jacuzzi suite for my anniversary...nice & big room with big Jacuzzi in the toilet. The room is so big with balcony (seaview)
A bit noisy as my room is at first level facing the swimming pool (the back is facing the sea)
Pillow a bit soft not so comfortable.
No free wifi in the room.
For those who love seasport this is an ideal place to go.
The hotel do arrange for candlelite dinner and its near to the restaurant. Food not bad.
The service at the hotel is ok.
Love the breakfast very much. Variety of food.

Room Tip: Do not choose the 1st level as it is so noisy (esp next to swimming pool)

Stayed there for 3 nights with my GF

Wonderful view in the evening as our little hut is overlooking the sea. Can see the little marine creatures moving about after every wave poured in. bathroom area was huge and so is the bedroom. There is a little "zoo" nearby too.

Now for the not so fantastic points: Bath tub was very small,the size of the bathroom terrified my gf as the facilities inside are like at each corner and kinda a distance apart from one another. Air con went out in the morning so we have to get out of the room early to walk about as there isnt any shuttle service.

Walking back from the lobby is really nice as the area is very cooling and smooth though if you walk at night it gets errie

Didnt really try the water sports as it is kinda EX and looks very overused. Instead we just chillout near the beach

Restaurant has a nice view and the mood is about right though the food does not comply with the ambience

Really enjoy the trip if you are looking for a relaxing and quiet 3 days 2 night chillout trip. Though i will not recommend anything more than that.

Bought this trip from groupon deal.

The resort is approximately 45 min car journey away from the Bintan ferry terminal.
Quiet, not crowded and abit wulu.

Their receptionist are friendly and they even lead us the way to our rooms.
The room is quite spacious with seaview, we manage to get a connecting room for the 5 of us.

What i don't like about the room is that the toilet light they uses orange light bulb, therefore the whole toilet looks dim and abit spooky. We took the table lamp from the room into the toilet and manage to make the toilet abit brighter and less scary. There are also stains on the bed sheet.
The door to the balcony was abit faulty, you have to push very hard to open it. There are no free wifi in the room.

Dinner restaurant is a 5 min walk away from the lobby. They doesn't have much lights around the resort, the way to the restaurant was abit dark moreover it is situated away from the shore. However, they serve good ayam penyet there !

After dinner, on our way back, I guess their electrical circuit tripped. The whole resort lights went off and was pitch dark. Really scary, we couldn't even see what was infront. Lucky, after a few minute it was back to normal again.

The only thing that i like about there was their Sea sports and Fireworks!
Sea sport, you must try their (Big Mable, Poparazzi and banana boat) although it was abit expensive and left us muscle ache for a few days, it was totally worth it !

First of all, we thank you for your kind inputs for our improvement. We are so sorry for the not nice things that happened during your stay.
For your information, our resort is still under major renovation to beautify all the rooms and facilities that we have. All the rooms’ toilet light bulbs have been changed to the new light bulbs which are white and brighter. As well as the balcony door, we are on the midst of changing all the balcony door so the guests may feel more comfortable to open the doors and enjoy the sea breeze from the balcony.
We apologize for the inconvenience that the electrical circuit tripped for a while was due to the power shut down from the electricity supplied by the government. Whenever this happened, we will turn on the generator as soon as possible which will be less than 5 minutes

We had a nice stay during our weekend away from Singapore. It's not very flashy, but totally OK. They have two rather small pools, one overlooking the sea. Do note that the beach is pretty bad, you'll have to walk 400 feet out into the water before it starts getting deep. If you're into kite surfing, this place rocks! They also offer kite surfing 2 or 3 day lessons, if I'm not mistaken. There is a complimentary shuttle bus that takes you to another Agro-resort, but the beach isn't much better here.

They offer two restaurants, one at the end of a pier and one next to the resort next to the major pool area. Both serves great value food, not too expensive (as long as you don't want a bottle of wine).

Nevertheless, we spent a weekend here and really enjoyed ourselves. The scenery from the beach area is beautiful which is perfect for relaxing with a good book.

It's also worth to mention that they offer guided tours by boat (we chose the mangrove tour and got to see snakes sleeping in the trees, a big eagle and monkeys), which is highly recommended if you find yourself getting bored. We had a very clean and nice room, and I'm not really sure why the other reviewers are complaining about the cleanliness. Both my girlfriend and I found the entire place pretty clean and well managed.

As most places on Bintan, its location makes it kind of isolated. Not the place to go if your'e looking to party.

Room Tip: Try to get a poolside room (facing the smaller pool). Great value, really nice beds and very nicely...

The Bintan Agro resort and its proximity to Singapore makes for an easy and inexpensive weekend getaway suitable for families who don't need the plush, luxury resorts. This resort lacks the fit and finish of the bigger resorts and is a little dated, but if you're not picky and/or on a budget, this is the place. Beautiful white sand beaches are a 10 minute boat ride away with a complete compliment of water sports at a fair price. Food selection is acceptable and suitable for westerners with decent quality. The staff is very friendly and helpful always flashing a smile. The resort itself has enough things to entertain my kids (no easy task ages 8 and 10) for the weekend. Any longer than 2 or 3 days and we would have longed for a bigger, better place.
The rooms are basic but acceptable for the cost as we didn't need much after a long day in the sun. Beautiful pools and nice views from the restaurants made for some great pictures. This off the beaten path hotel is gem if you value your money and are not too fussy.

Room Tip: Get a bay view room at no extra cost, just ask nicely!

We stayed in room 5303. Don't take rooms from that block. The shower trickled only a few drops of water that I didn't have a proper shower for 2 days.
Food was slightly below average. However, if you are looking for a relaxing place to read one whole novel, this this the place to go. The resort is like way out from civilization. So if you want to shop and paint the town red.. Forget it!
