“The beach is very nice”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 1, 2012

a very nice beach, with water rides that attract
play banana boat a pleasant experience,
with a delicious breakfast, can relieve job stress
I went with my friends from thailand
say they have never felt so exciting atmosphere at the beach
although a small swimming pool with a good view, can relieve stress

Was super nauseous during the 1 hour long bumpy ride before we finally got to the resort. The staff were very friendly and ready to help, but it couldn't make up for the run-down conditions of the resort.

The room was okay. However, the door for the shower was faulty and couldn't close fully. The shower made it almost impossible to have a bath as the water literally trickled down. We didn't ask for a change of rooms as we were only staying for one night.

Went to the beach and it was very disappointing. The water wasn't clear and loads of seaweed floating around. The beach was so shallow and littered with rocks that we couldn't sunbathe on the beach. We switched to the pool which was much more comfortable.

Dinner was good and affordable. Didn't manage to see any water sports activities around except for kayaking.

Overall, I wouldn't recommend this resort although it was fairly affordable. i would definitely be willing to pay more to go back to Bintan Lagoon Resort, which offers fantastic rooms and an amazing beach you would never forget.

I was there with my families and booked 3 rooms which were surprisingly quite nice and clean. we got the room on the ground and near by the pools. They have 2 adequate pools which is nice. The beach is within walking distance.
The staffs are nice and helpful. There are several activities you can do there like playing in the beach, doing watersport activities (comes with charges), swim in the pool, having spa, karaoke or just riding with their free motorbike around the resort.
Too bad the beach is not that great and shallow too. Just don't expect too much as in their photos in website. For better beach, you may visit cabana. They have free shuttle bus to go there on scheduled time.
Other pros, they have free pick up and transfer to the city for free. Just inform the front desk staffs. There is also minimart and seafood restaurant with reasonable price.
Con is i couldn't stand the mosquitoes in the room! It will be great if they may provide the mosquito net on the bed.
Overall it is a good stay.

Long transit time from Singapore,but nice base to kiteboard or other water sports. Food quality fine, prices not Singapore Dollar based like many other Bintan resorts. Kids enjoyed themselves and kept busy in the pool and beach while I was on the water

It took long time to get to here from pier. Room and bathroom looked quite simple. Simple did not mean bad. There was a giant mantis outside room, and a super giant lizard inside room. Yes, we were in tropical island! Generally, everything seemed to be well managed and properly functioned. Breakfast included in room rate was limited, but still nice. Swimming pool was not superb, but suitable for kids. You can also enjoy spa and massage with very reasonable price. Beach was not good for swimiing, but good for crab-chaser. There were many crabs. My son really loved that!

This trip was supposed to be a girly-spa-getaway for four girls but it turned into a horrendous we-want-to-go-home-on-the-first ferry encounter.
Nevermind about the long and bumpy ride, but the bus broke down midway.
The hotel is run down. Our room was hot and stuffy as air-conditioning unit was not working. Requested for it to be fixed but it broke down again (read on).
There were stains on the comforter and sheets, and the pillow smells awful.
Toilet was old and dirty, the water heater and tap weren't working very well. Heater temperature was erratic, tap water surges inconsistently.

The in-house spa was bad........We all chose the Queen's spa but we felt no where close to being a queen. The massage technique was below standard. The head rest was lower than the bed, causing much discomfort to our necks.The masseurs do not understand English and were more interested in cleaning up the rooms to prepare for the next patrons.

Dinner at SunMoon was ok, the food was not fantastic, but the nice atmosphere made up for it.

We went back to the room only to find that the air-con was still not functioning. It was already 11pm. We asked for a change of rooms, only to be given a room that has a faulty door lock. So the four of us squeezed into ONE ROOM, on ONE QUEEN SIZE BED, and we barely sleep a wink. We were dying to go home on the first ferry and made our way back first thing in the morning.

We will never go back again.

Room Tip: good luck.

best friend & I stayed there for 2days1night & got the deal from deals.com:

Bintan: 2D1N Stay at Bintan Argro Beach & Spa Resort OR Bintan Cabana Resort
Only $98 per pax instead of $199 (Min 2 Pax)
Package Includes:
One night accommodation at Bintan Agro/Bintan Cabana Superior Room for twin sharing
Return ferry ticket
Return land transfer
Free kayaking for one hour
Free bicycle ride for one hour
One Indonesia style lunch at Sun Moon Seafood Restaurant
One buffet breakfast
Choice of ONE of the following activities:
Snorkeling (min. 4 pax)
Flying Fish
Poparazzi
Big marble
Banana Boat
City Tour with Lunch (min. 6 pax)

1) Ferry from Tanamerah Terminal: sat in ECONOMY CLASS. ordinary ride, approximately 45mins - 1 hour. showed cartoons (e.g. tom & jerry) throughout the ride (there is another upper class called EMERALD)

2) Bus Trip to Agro: there were staff at Bintan custom greeting us with smiles, asking us where we were going to stay & giving good directions for us to find our driver. bus trip took ~1hrs10mins & it was pretty bumpy, driver drove insanely fast,

3) Check-in: efficient, we were allowed to check-in earlier than the usual 3pm. staff were very welcoming with smiles.

4) Souvenir Shop: Agro has a souvenir shop, pretty warm & stuffy (didnt sell BINTAN magnets, but the shops at the custom have)...nothing much to buy..they had a table outside providing HANNA services

5) Convenience Store: small, price pretty much the same as Singapore's products.

6) Room: unexpectedly huge with a lovely balcony overseeing the sea. hairdryer, electric kettle, 2 bottles of complimentary mineral water were provided.

7) Electric Sockets: same as Singapore's (3-pin). experienced 1 power failure during the 2d1n

8) Bicycle Rental: we had a 1-hour free bicycle rental but it was pretty redundant (we were only allowed to cycle in the resort - which is pretty small -) we could finish 1 round of the resort in 15 mins

9) Pools: 2 pools, both pretty small & not suitable for swimming, only recommended for sun-tanning & chilling by the pool

10) Food: only 2 restaurants (1) SUNMOON - good food, reasonable price, having larger portion meals as compared to ASIANA. situated on kelong, good dining view, might be able to see people playing water sports (2) ASIANA RESTAURANT - food not bad. is where buffet brekky is served. but serving portion of meals is pretty small ! both restaurants serve a wide selection of alcohol (price similar to Singapore's)

11) Sea & Sunrise: it has v low tide, so low that we were not able to have the banana boat ride (had to be driven 10 mins away to another beach for the activity). water is very dirty. however, the sunrise is beautiful..be there at 530am to catch sunrise.

12) Gym: they have a "fitness center", the one & only gym in the world without aircon...with many reasonable equipments

13) DVD & TV Rental: tv reception wasnt too good..mostly indo channels & a channel 8 (all fizzy blurry & grey). rented a DVD player & 2 DVDs @ $10 for 12 hours. not too bad :) hotel staff had to come fix up the DVD player. relatively old movies but a wide range to choose from.

14) Currency $$$: they accept SGD or rupiah @ the conversion of 1: 7,300

15) Oceanic Spa: booking in advance of 1 day gives you 10% discount. we had the SWEDISH massage @ $36/hr (original $40/hr). may choose your own oil scent, they serve ginger tea as a welcome drink . massage was ordinary.

16) Water Sports: pretty pricey !! e.g. 10 mins of poparazzi/banana boat for S$12/pax. there are special packages though

17) Trip to Tanjong Pinang: they have a daily 615pm shuttle service to a shopping mall called Tanjong Pinang @ S$10/pax

18) Zoo: the tiniest zoo ever. with the saddest animals living in it (beside the basketball court). there were many rabbits (hungry & havin only grass to eat), tortises that live in muddy (as hell) water, many roosters, parrots & birds. their cages look so abandoned.

19) Photo-taking with horse: we saw a pretty horse with it's rider by the beach & decided to snap pictures. rider was helpful & friendly. but after all the pictures, he asked for S$2.
