A nice hotel. Friendly and helpful staff, except maybe those at the breakfast cafe -- looked like they were tired and in need of more sleep. Decent buffet breakfast, considering the price we paid for the package. Room was comfortable with all the basic amenities. Windows look out to a sort of corridor lined with beautiful statues of angels playing various musical instruments...quite pleasant. The corridors as well as lift lobby area is huge, which is quite a waste, unless they expect all the guests staying there to leave at the same time. Swimming pool area was deserted and looked like nobody had been there a long time...
Nothing much around the hotel....across the road are some restaurants. We had a buffet lunch at one of them (cant remember the name but it was part of the package again) -- again decent food though nothing to rave about. Would probably try Sanur the next time round.
Don't believe the locals when they tell you the shopping mall (Megamall) is nearby and about 5 minutes' walk. It's a walkable distance -- about 10-15 minutes, definitely not 5 minutes. A taxi ride would cost about S$10 so we decided to walk there and cab back. But not a good idea to walk if you have elderly folks or those who are not very mobile. Next time, we'll try Harris Hotel Batam Centre which is opposite the Megamall and next to the ferry terminal.
