Did a 1 night's stay here with a Groupon.
There is NOTHING to do here except for clam-picking.
There's a shuttle bus that goes to nearby Bintan Agro Resort which has a seafood restaurant, a karaoke room, 3 deck chairs, a tiny pool and a sundry shop but it leaves every TWO hours.
And in very fine print on the bus schedule, it says you need to book your seat on the bus in advance.
There aren't enough seats/bus departures to cope with the number of people trying to go (run away) to Agro so you may get left behind. And wait another two hours for the next bus.
You can't walk - it's too far.
The food is bad, the rooms are so-so, there is no beach to relax on and no deck chairs, hammocks or mats or anything to enjoy the sun.
And everytime you ask for something (anything, including a taxi) you are told that "you are in a very remote area."
Oh yes, this "resort" is not on the resort side of the island.
