I stayed there with my family of 8 people altogether for 2D1N. Got it from a deal of just 100$++ for a night stay. Wasn't bringing high hope to this resort after reading the following comments but turns out, it wasn't as bad as it is being stated.
For a short vacation it was alright.
1) The travelling time from ferry terminal to the resort can take up to 1 1/2 hours of car journey. The price was at 50$ SGD
2) There isn't any beach, food and sports anywhere at the surrounding of the resort.
: 15min shuttle services to the beach
3) The swimming pool had some algae at the base and water spider but it was still swim-able. We still swum and played in the pool for 2hours before checking-out.
1) The services provided at the resort was great.
: Reception staff do speak english only the driver don't. Communication wasn't a very major
2) They gave us complimentary shuttle service to and fro the beach without having to wait. (you just have to fix the time with the reception staff) The driver drove at a very comfortable speed.
3) Paid a reasonable price for the driver to drive us down to city and have dinner. They are able to drop you by the nearby shopping centre for a stroll too! (Fix a pick-up time with the driver will do)
4) Breakfast was alright even though with limited choices.
By paying 100++$ SGD, you can't ask for a 4-6 star resort service. But my family was satisfied with the service they gave us. The room was generally big and clean. We were driven up to our resort after every trip to the beach or city area. We also swap for complimentary driver to drove us back to the ferry terminal instead of city. The reception staff will plan your time for you to leave the resort.
- My room electricity wasn't cut off in the middle of the night.
- We don't really need a phone either. Reception was within walking distance of 1min only.
- They can serve the food to your room once you ordered it from the reception.
