We went for a 2D1N stay, got the voucher from Groupon. The journey took indeed 1 hour + from central area..
Staff were really helpful, sent us to our Oceanic Room on a trishaw when we arrived in the evening.(held up by the other tour mates!! should have gone free & easy!) Their packaged dinner at the Sun Moon restaurant was not bad, we got some vegetable chicken soup followed by main dish(chicken was humoungous but a little hard) followed by desserts - watermelon.
The next day we decided to wake up at 6am Bintan time to have a soak in the sea but we were shocked because its' low tide is something we had never seen before, the water had receded way back into the far depths of the vast ocean that lay beyond. I think the water started seeping in at only about 10am, when many of the water activities started.. so we started getting ready for breakfast.
Breakfast was horrible, the noodle looks fake, the roti prata I got was not even cooked!! The only thing that saved us from hunger were the small pieces of nuggets, ate only that till we felt full. Besides there were so many flies flying around disturbing our peace! You have been warned! We would have just sat inside our room eating cup noodle if we had known earlier.
The oceanic room 6103 we got was just fine, beds are suprisingly clean.. toilets dun really flush well though but i tink that's a whole bintan thing.. everything was fine for the room and staff were very friendly and hospitable throughout..
Oh we went for a 15-20 min horse ride and managed to take pic with it although the horse can be a little hard to manage, would keep turning his head when we are trying to take picture! It costs 76000 Rupiah, quite worth it. I thought there was an elephant ride too but I think that could be ages ago...
Overall, I would say it is pretty average. Might book here in advance again but won't take the breakfast deal !!
