There are many websites and travel agents in Singapore offering good deals for 2D 1N trips to Batam. I have been on 3 such trips with my mother in 10 months and each time staying at different hotels, but this is the only one I was compelled to revew.
For S$78 (all taxes inclusive) I did not expect much, so I was pleasantly surprised to hear that the soft drinks and peanuts in the mini bar, in addition to the standard bottles of mineral water, was complimentary. I was also impressed by the larger than usual bathtub in the bathroom. Incidently, no hand or face towels were made available and to save water, I did not request for any.
However, the reason why I would not be returning to this hotel any time soon, is that during the breakfast buffet at the Bamboo Cafe (Hope I have the name right, it is on ground floor right opposite the lifts). In the span of i hour, I witnessed 3 small brown cockroaches crawling around and (I kid you not) ON the food. Word of advice: Don't take the soft rolls or the kueh on the table nearest the entrance!
