Stayed in February 2013 with family for a short break. Service and location was great! Away from the city but with a choice of doing as much or as little as you decide. Perfect for few days away in a sun with plenty to occupy the kids! Staff very helpful and accommodating. Room very good standard and extremely clean but open for many years so bit of wear and tear is to be expected. Opted for Rasa Family fun package so buffet dinner and breakfast included and so much easier with kids. Had a fab time!

The rooms are a little older, but well appointed for families. If you are travelling with 2 kids though make sure you get 2 adjoining rooms as we got a surprise to see the sofa bed in our room which was to fit our 2 kids ages 8 & 10 was Bly the size of a king single. Beside that absolutely everything was at the resort to make a relaxing holiday for all, fabulous kids facilities to let them just roam free in safety. Very expensive though for family meals and found ourself waking Bly minutes away to one of the many Sislo Beach Restaurants to feed the family.

Room Tip: Level 7 suites are great for families with 2 separate rooms, separate beds for 2 kids, roof top gard...

Am staying at this hotel now, with my partner and a 1 year old. here's my take after a few days.

Pro's:
- buffet breakfast has a great variety. We're there at 6:30am with a jet lagged toddler so there is always heaps of seats and food.
- food overall is very good. Room service and restaurants we've tried have been great.
- rooms are comfy. We're in a king size ocean view room, not massive but not tiny either.
- the pool is great, huge and plenty of sun loungers available
- facilities for kids are very good. There is a kids club (ages 5 - 12) with great amenities and as we have a toddler there is a free toddler room which he loves
- got sent up some free birthday cake when it was my partners birthday which was a nice touch

Cons:
- the photo of the beach is a fake. The water is not that blue or the sand that white. The photo of the beach and hotel must have been taken from one of the 37 massive oil tankers that sit about 500m off the shore and dominate the "sea view" which also includes a bonus oil refinery or some such industrial nightmare. Not the hotel's fault but the awful haze caused by bush fires in Indonesia makes for a somewhat depressing backdrop. It looks likes some smoky hazy industrial Armageddon going on rather than a peaceful ocean view.
- when our son went paddling up to his knees at the beach, he came out with oil on his legs. I am not joking. The beach is a health hazard and swimming should be banned, not encouraged!
- seriously not a 5 star hotel when they charge extra for milk (!) even when they have tea/coffee facilities. It costs $5 + service charge to get wine glasses sent up to your room. Honestly, like wine glasses are some rare luxury item in the 21st century.
- whilst the hotel has plenty to offer, it's isolated without any amenities near by. There is no supermarket on the island ( problem when you have a child who needs nappies, wipes etc), the nearest ATM is a good 15min walk or tram ride away.
- rooms don't have a bath. A BATH. Surely a bath is a pre-requisite for 5 stars? For $425 a night, really you expect more, you really do.

Overall. Ok but massively over-priced and I wouldn't come back.

We stayed for 2 nights in early June 2013. We booked a Deluxe sea view room using British Airways Avios points. These rooms do NOT have bathtubs and we therefore upgraded to a Panorama room (the next grade up) upon check-in. The additional cost was only SIN$20 per night and there was no problem in doing so.

The hotel has been completely refurbished in the last year or so and is still in very good condition. The breakfast buffet is an absolute feast, but a fairly stressful experience with lots of children running around chasing the birds, large queues at the egg station and mediocre coffee. However, the extensive range of breakfast items is very impressive, but you seem to spend more time choosing than sitting at the table eating!

The pool area has a mixture of sunny and shaded spots (which is good for both sun and shade lovers) and the hotel is located right on the beach. Complimentary chilled water is provided by the pool on a self-serve basis.

It's a very child friendly resort, with a children's pool and flumes. There is a kids club and plenty for them to do during the day. The main pool gets very busy, but we never had a problem getting sun loungers.

Whilst we enjoyed our stay, we are sad to say that we probably wouldn't return due to the general level of hustle & bustle, which detracted from the peaceful end to our holiday that we were looking for. That said, seeing wild monkeys on our 10th floor balcony one morning was a real highlight!

We visited Singapore from 24 May - 2 June 2013 and decided to stay 6 nights on Orchard Road at the Mandarin Orchard (reviewed separately) and the final 3 nights at the Shangri-La Rasa Resort on Sentosa Island (room 915). Bottom line is that, despite some flaws noted in other reviews, we enjoyed this Sentosa hotel the most and would stay here (or elsewhere in Sentosa) on our next visit to Singapore.

We personally found Ll the staff very friendly and helpful. On arrival, the receptionist booked us into a sea view room on the 9th floor with a fantastic view of the pool area, beach and lagoon, notwithstanding that our Flight Centre travel agent had failed to tell the hotel that our booking had been upgraded from the original hill view reservation to full sea view. She kindly undertook to tie up all the loose ends with the travel agent rather than trouble us any further, and we were most appreciative of her assistance. Likewise, the gentleman who cleaned our room each day was always smiling and offering us more towels, water etc. and the doorman was very kind and reassuring. We felt very welcome and in fact relaxed to a totally new level as soon as we walked into the reception area, with its glimpse of the pool below.

Yes, the hotel is one of the oldest on Sentosa and despite its renovation the decor is a bit tired, the rooms have a shower but no bath, and we were disappointed that there were no in house movies.
It is therefore more 4 star than 5 star.... But we loved it anyway!

The hotel provides a free courtesy bus which goes to and from The large Vivocity shopping complex with its delightful harbour front promenade every 20 minutes. As Vivocity contains the Harbourfront MRT (Singapore awesome subway - if only Perth had one!) the Sentosa blurbs encouraging tourists to stay there and pop across to the city proper to shop are actually quite realistic and this is what we will do next time.

Ladies and dedicated shoppers - have pity on your non-shopper partners and book your Singapore getaway on Sentosa! You will both relax so much more, and they can linger there and chill out while you pop over to Orchard Rd, Little India, Raffles Place etc via the MRT.

Just down the driveway from the Shangri-la are bus stops for Bus 1 and 2 which will take you free all around the island, including to Universal Studios (a must visit). Underwater world is also there, while while also now rather dated, is where you can book a swim with the oink dolphins ($170Sing)' review follows separately.

Finally, breakfast was good though not as good as we may have expected from a Shangri-la hotel.

There were many families enjoying the resort and these never impinged on our own enjoyment.

Taking a realistic view, we were satisfied that this was value for money, loved the location and will definitely return.

Room Tip: You are on Sentosa to relax and soak up the natural beauty, so spoil ourself and book a seaview room...

excellent hotel.
All transport on the island is free frequency of buses is 30 minutes).. so i guess location is not too important
Large rooms & well designed.
Bathrooms spacious and well stocked.
getting the right adaptor for an indian plug is a problem & it took ages to arrive
Staff is courteous but a little business like for a resort ..did not see too many smiling faces like the other hotels i stayed in at singapore during this visit
Cycles are available free at the hotel and the beach is nearby..so a good ride (umbrellas available for a 10SGD deposit, cycle locks at 50SGD deposit !
Peacocks freely roam around the hotel and is a pleasant experience
