“Better than the others I guess”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 6, 2013

My friend and I stayed there for 2days and 1 night. Quite far because we traveled 45minutes from the port just to get in there and we passed by some of the resorts in Bintan and I guess it was the better one coz the other's smaller than this resort.

The rooms are pretty good and spacious and the sea view from the room really took our breath away especially in the morning where the sun was rising.

The only quite-bad(not really), there is no wifi inside the room so we need to go down to the lobby or to the poolside just to browse net.
The restaurants were spacious but kind of disappointing because when we had breakfast, there were flies around the tables and the chafing dishes, and it was absolutely irritating. (I did took shower anyway before we go for breakfast)
The activities were limited.

The poolside has a good view anyway, near the sea.
The spa was awesome. I fell asleep though.

And the service was good also.

Room Tip: 1 night stay would be good enough, because its far from the city, or any market, so your day will on...

We stayed at the Agro for a weekend of kitesurfing and though the kitesurfing was amazing this hotel is dated and very run down. We booked one of the Blue Ocean Suites which stands on stilts above water. Though it was lovely being on the sea the room was really unpleasant and a huge disappointment (especially for the price we paid). Both the room and the bathroom are large but the decor looks like it's from the 70s, the sheets and towels are ripped and stained (presumably these are also from the 70s) and there is a sense of uncleanliness. The toilet seat broke and when we had a look we saw that it had been broken previously and the staff had "fixed" it by wedging a pencil through it!
In regards to the rest of the resort there are lots of activities on offer – there's beach volleyball, basketball, karaoke, a spa and water sports. There's also a really nice pool – however the the sun loungers are wooden, uncomfortable and are fixed in an upright position. For a group of school children I imagine this resort would be fine, but for anyone else I wouldn't recommend it. The food here is also terrible and unfortunately there aren't any restaurants nearby.
On a positive note the staff were friendly and helpful but sadly overall the Agro was a huge disappointment and it is in desperate need of a makeover. We won't be back.

Room Tip: Don't pay a lot of money for a Blue Ocean Suite, instead choose a cheaper room which I imagine a...

Stayed for 2 night for kitesurfing lessons. Very basic hotel. Room was okay, could be better if the bathroom is cleaner. The staff are very helpful though.
Breakfast was average. Need to add fresh food or improve the menu.

Room Tip: We had room with ocean view. Nice to see the sun rise.

I stayed in ocean suite room n it's in middle of the ocean, it's was so spacious,beautiful wit balcony! Gud for honeymooners as its a quiet place! Their service is gud n they r very helpful! Their sea sports r nice! Beach was ok! Their sun moon restaurant seafood r awesome! However their Asiana bistro should improve on their food! Breakfast not bad. The journey frm ferry terminal to hotel is 1hr 15mins by shuttle they provide! Quite tiring for long journey! They can improve on other activities like pubs, badminton court, wifi etc. overall nice quiet place to stay away frm busy lifestyle! Gud job bintan agro!

We went here for a weekend getaway. The room itself was very basic but clean enough. The bathroom had a strange smell (probably bad plumbing) although it looked clean.
This hotel has 2 well kept swimming pools. While on the beach, its not the kind of beach you would want to lounge around on. No soft white sand here. The beach is covered with snail shells, but if this doesn't bother you, you can enjoy a nice walk along the beach or further into the very shallow waters. The breakfast buffet was impressive for the price we paid. We also had dinner at the seafood restaurant which I would rate as average.
It was particularly difficult to communicate with the staff at the hotel as very few of them could speak English. This was by far the most disappointing aspect.

Room Tip: Most of the rooms in this hotel look out to the ocean.

Stayed there throughout the whole 2d1n trip to bintan. Having read much negative reviews about the place, i was actually impressed when i arrived with my friends. The beach had white sand and clear waters, unlike the mudflat which many reviews described. Room was well-equipped with a nice balcony overlooking the pool and sea. Sun moon restaurant is worth a visit at night, has an alfresco dining/reclining area to just sit around enjoy the breeze and star gaze. There was also a convenience store but the food and drinks there didn't have much variety. Really liked the fact that there weren't much people at the resort, maybe because of this time of the year. However, there were much cockroaches and lizards scrawling around the resort.

Nice location, great staff, the hotel is in need of some much needed TLC, looks like their on with it, but the room did have musty smell, and some of the outside facade is need of smartening up. The food is good value, the drink is extremely expensive, and beware it is one bottle of alcohol per person per visit, the authorities ensure that this is implemented, at customs on your way in, and do enforce this, and take from you ! !
