We booked a 3D/2N package which included breakfast, tickets to Universal Studios Singapore, SEA Aquarium and Adventure Cove. The tickets to the 3 attractions were not open date and we had to pre-book when we wanted to use them when we made payment for the package.
Check-in was a little slow as they didn't have sufficient staff on hand to clear the queue, though I must say that the experience is different as you are seated during the entire time compared to the check-in at other hotels where you be standing.
The room and bathroom was nice and big. The view from my room was great overlooking Adventure Cove and the main land but that was it. Quality of the toiletries were of poor standard. Funishings in the rooms were of poor workmanship - the sofa had nails sticking out at one end. TV offerings were very limited and if you want movies, you would have to be prepared to pay. This also applies to Wi-Fi access which is unheard of nowadays except at budget / no-frills hotels. The room only had a couple of coffee mugs and the mini-bar was limited to just beer and soft drinks. No wine glasses, corkscrew, no hard liquor that you would expect from a hotel such as this.
On the good side, the hotel does offer shuttle services to the other hotels and attractions within Resorts World Sentosa. There is a service every 15 minutes but be early to avoid disappointment. My only complain about the service is that it only starts at 10am which is when most attractions open. But kudos to staff who were pro-active to offer us a buggy ride on the day we were meant to have breakfast at Universal Studios before it opened.
I personally wouldn't rate this hotel as a 5-star establishment.
