We arrived at club Med before the 2pm check in (was just before 12) and even though the hotel was only at 50% capacity our party of 5 (5rooms) had to wait the 2 hours for our " rooms to be ready" . On arrival in our rooms we couldn't have been more disappointed, they were filthy to say the least, stains on sheets, dirty showers, drips down the cupboards, and indescribable marks on the walls- however, on discussing this with the manager we were immediately moved into upgraded and really neat clean rooms which were lovely. The difference was quite remarkable and the manager could not have handled the situation any better. The rest of the stay was great and I highly recommend the day spa. The sat night show/dinner by the pool was hilarious (so tacky you couldn't not laugh) and the meals were great with plenty of variety. We were 5 adults traveling together and Club Med is a great "family" resort, it was obvious the kids had a ball 24/7 giving the mum and dads time to chill by the pool. As 5 adults with no kids, prob not the best selection it's no party house;0) though we certainly had fun. If you are a family looking for a chilled stay, I highly recommend it. If your a couple or group without kids, prob not where you want to go.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The Island of Bintan to the south of Singapore is full of history, marked by fallen empires. Its tranquil bays were long used by the Orang Laut pirates as a refuge. This is where Club Med Bintan Island, a haven of tranquility and refinement combining modernity with Asian tradition, now nestles. From the terrace of the Bar, feast your eyes on the mass of lapis-lazuli blue, mother of pearl and emerald, from the pool to the lush gardens. Nearby, Ria Bintan Golf Course is also a golfer's heaven. ... more less
