I have been to this Club Med more than 10 times. It is an easy ferry ride from Singapore where I currently live. The beach is fantastic, the pool is great and there are all the usual Club Med activities to choose from. The rooms were redone a few years ago, and are a little bit tired in places but then how much time do you want to spend in your room?! The food choices are usually pretty good, but its a shame there is less dining options offered at the outdoor restaurant these days. The new spa is very nice though and a great location for the 9am yoga. If you want to have fun, enjoy the beach and activities then its the place for you. If you want five star luxury and pampering then you would be looking for a different location. We love it and regularly visit with either with extended family (those in their 70's) or with friends and their kids.

Room Tip: If you have a chance to be in A, B, C,D blocks you are pretty close to the main building and ghe restaurant

Juz back last nite (19 Jun 2013)... to hazy Singapore. This was our 3rd trip to CM Bintan and upon arrival this was what we heard a child telling her mother (they were at the Reception area, all packed and waiting for their departure) "Ma...I dun want to go home, I want to stay here forever!"...the reply from her mother was "oh baby...I also want to stay here forever!". That's the feeling most GMs feel...

Food : For lunch & dinner - generous and good variety. Breakfast spread could have been better.
Room : Deluxe room (Blk A) we had was well maintained and the toilet has been refurbished. Great view (pool & sea).
Facilities : Well-equipped and good mix to cater to most guests. The beach is awesome...clear and calm, suitable for young families and the elderlies. Elephant ride caught many kids by surprise.
GOs : They are the ones who made the difference in the CM village. Their patience when coaching us the various sports, their dedication esp towards the kids at the mini club, their passions when it comes to the performances.

Like to thank Mei and her team...for making CM Bintan so inviting. Special mention to Leo for spending so many sessions of badminton with us and showing us his magic tricks. Marco for his hilarious performances (actually he is a very nice guy in person...not the sissy as he portrayed on stage). Davo for the daily soccer matches and also Jayret for his patience in coaching archery (should see his Lady Gaga pose). Not forgetting vivacious Chef Simon who has taken personalization further.

CM Bintan is highly recommended for short vacation for its proximity to Singapore and a great resort for families.

This trip exceeded our expectations and there was never a dull moment. Thanks to Mei and her team of GOs who made our trip so memorable: Shirley for showing us around when we first arrived; Eduardo for teaching us how to sail; Robert for teaching us how to windsurf; Leo for the squash lessons, magic tricks and great company; and the many many others whom we had the pleasure of interacting with. You guys are the reason why a Club Med experience is such an awesome one!

My wife, kid and I were at Club Med, Bintan for 6 days last week and it is by far the most relaxing vacation that we've had since the little boy came along (he's 4).

Much of the credit goes to the wonderful team of GOs at the Mini Club especially Min, Nikki, Sebastian, Prisy and Sally who organised activities for the little ones under their charge and gave all of them the entire VIP treatment. :) When asked what he enjoyed most about his stay, our little boy gave an unequivocal answer - "MINI CLUB"!

Having him in their good hands also allowed both of us to take part in many activities that we would not have been able to - like snorkelling, Aquagym, tennis lessons, sailing, kayaking and chilling by the pool. In the process, we also had a chance to interact with Josh, Lucy, Nate, Leo and many other GOs without whom the experience would have been a less colourful one. We would also like to express our thanks to Mei, the very visible and hardworking Village Chief, who went out of her way to ensure the comfort of all her guests at Club Med.

We will definitely be back! Muchas gracias!

Room Tip: If you are traveling with young children, request for a room further removed from the pool as that's where the nightly parties happen till late.

I had a blast at Club Med Bintan. Although this place is ideally for families (with kids 4 - 12 yrs old in my opinion), the warmth and service of the GOs made this trip such an exciting one. Firstly, the generous spread of food and desserts is going to make you want to come back for seconds, hence gaining a few pounds post trip is inevitable. Apart from an array of Korean, Chinese, Japanese, Indian, Western delicacies, the effort put into the presentation of this food is well appreciated. One can even visit the Terrace Restaurant to have a romantic meal overlooking the beach.

The most amazing thing was the stamina of the GOs - while they had to oversee activities - windsurfing, archery, golf and circus, they still participated in the daily entertaining 9 pm shows and had to rehearse for the next day's shows at midnight.. These indefatigable warriors never showed their exhaustion and were so sociable/photogenic and even went the extra mile in showing us magic tricks.. Special shout out to Leo who not only taught us tennis patiently but in the newly opened Karaoke rooms, he was a hoot to be with. His impression of Adele is one not to be missed as he can easily reach the high notes.. We also had a great time with Robert, Nat, and Alex for the watersports as they gave us the confidence to sail, kayak and surf out on our own..

I was also impressed at the different themes I experienced each night.. Night 1 - Miniclub theme night where we were treated to the cute and lovely performances of the kids.. Night 2 Casino night/Michael Jackson/circus night - croupiers/ chips, cards were all brought out to revamp the Santai area to a classy casino.. Night 3 - Sports night as Olympic medals were dished out to the winners of the Olympic games held earlier in the day. Night 4 - Opening ceremony of the Karaoke bar, not to mention the sportmanship of the GOs who enthralled us with their silky dance moves.. MJ, Gaga, Pink, Rihanna reprised their roles and added gloss to the opening of the Karaoke rooms..

If there was one bad point about the trip, I would say it's the small flat screen TV in the room but with abundance of activities in the resort, there wouldn't be a need to hole up in the room for the FOX and HBO movies.
