We were greeted by the bellboy and he offered to carry our bags. The people downstairs are always prepared to answer any queries and also bring us to golden city for some activities. Sadly when we reached the atv is not working. We book this hotel so it's near for us to do lots of activities especially atv. Came back the next day atv still spoilt. Jet ski was fun. Enjoyed the ride while battling with the waves and sometimes on air lol. Worth the $20 experience. Taxi uncle also very friendly. Love the taxi. They're using Toyota avanza and it was so comfy. There's aircon at the back seat too on top of us. It was rainy season and luckily Toyota avanza car is quite 'tall' and rugged to drive through the rain, floods and roads with stones. We're only 2 people but we took the family room just because of the jacuzzi. Jacuzzi was great. Very nice. Room was big for the two of us. Breakfast was lousy. Don't put high expectation for the breakfast. The only thing I eat is the scrambled eggs, freshly made from the omelette station. Porridge and cereal. The rest was...not that tasty or just nothing to eat it with like the white rice. I don't know what's the white rice for since there's nothing suitable to eat with eat. Swimming pool was nice. Need to fix the ladder in the pool. Tried to climb up the ladder to go back to land but the steps and the handle was too loose. And the steps keep turning so in the end we just use our arm strength to go back up. Water is blue but it's not clear. Wore my goggle and I can only see my partner's face up to 30cm bcs the water is quite foggy although it seems blue and pretty from outside haha. We've read others review saying that there's a deposit of $50, but for my case we don't need to pay additional money. Maybe we'll come back just for the service and jacuzzi :) Btw from harbor bay ferry terminal to this hotel is rp60,000. If you wanna go to Nagoya hill for shopping is rp60,000. Thank you :)
