SEA maritime - Sadly this was not as good as the rest of the Resorts World. Clearly a great deal o.f money has been invested and doubtless it will pay back if the number of visitors is anything to go by. There were so many that most children would not see most fish and some children would see nearly none. It was difficult for kids to get near the front of each tank or to touch where it was permitted. The initial tunnel has an electric walkway alongside the static area but it was not working. Maybe fir safety reasons as there were far too many people. However I see from a previous review 24 Feb that it was not working then. I do think that if there had been 30 percent fewer people inside it would have been really good but at 29 dollars per adult plus 20 for kids over 4 and seniors it was too expensive fir what we were able to enjoy. Sorry. I think the sea life are fanulous but they have much more space than the payers visiting

I have stayed at RWS at the Equarius/Beach Villas Hotel and regretted it but love the Adventure Cove Water Park.

The Water Park is the best thing about RWS, that and Joel Robuchon's amazing main restaurant and L'Atelier restaurant.

However the Equarius and Beach Villas Hotels are an appalling waste of money and offer terrible unpersonalised service. The Capella by contrast along with W Hotels out of the RWS complex offer supreme service and great ambience.

RWS staff, especially Manager Irene Leong are poorly trained, don't listen and can't improve things when service goes wrong which is all the time.

The cafe Forest at Equarius is disgusting and matches the lack of attention to detail that RWS has on the personal experience side of it's buisness.

In case if you visit this place after visiting Universal Studios, you would be in for disappointment. The vibrancy, colors and excitement you experienced at Universal is all missing in Sentosa.

Not to forget that there are a couple of good things also like the LUGE, Songs of the Sea, beaches etc. But the shows like Pirates, Desperados and Log rides are simply not worth the hype, very average stuff.

In case if you plan to visit Sentosa, please visit before Universal to feel the charm and excitement. A word of advice, please buy a PREMIUM PASS worth SGD 130 which allows a 2 day access to Universal plus SENTOSA all rides and adventures, else it becomes too costly a affair, expecially within SENTOSA

We found this island to be VERY commercialised, man made and not natural, the beach was a joke, if you can call it a beach. Signage on the island had you walking in circles, at least the buses were free. The new large aquarium and the noodles we bought were the highlites. Be prepared to spend up big cos entry to all attractions will cost at least $25.00 each.

Visited the aquarium today with my mom and 2 children. My 4 year old liked it at first but we found the water tunnel too short. When you look up, you can see that the tank is really shallow because you could see all the beams and equipment. I hardly felt the undersea feeling that I had previously at Underwater World. The automated travellator of the tunnel doesn't work. I dunno why its there. Poorly equipped with toilets few and far between and no nursing rooms. Many exit signs but none of them are actual exits. Very misleading and confusing signage. Does not give you the option to leave early which is horrible when you are with a kid who urgently need the toilet and a hungry baby. My little boy tells me that he doesn't want to come back because he doesn't like it. He was also scared of the lion head on the Zheng He boat which moved and breathed smoke during the opening show. Will probably not be coming back again anytime soon. The entire experience is much too long and gets boring towards the middle and end after the giant viewing panel at the end.
