Isolated and Overpriced, but we enjoyed it
Posted Jan 20, 2017
We had two experiences at this hotel. The first was a week in a "deluxe room" and the second was a night in a "Superior Room" (Superior being lower than Deluxe).
The deluxe room had a view of a parking lot and some nearby construction. The doors on the closet did not work, the light switches were wired weirdly (for example two switches in a single cover one turns on to the right the other turns on to the left), and one of the switches was actually hanging out of the wall. The worst thing was that it was located right in front of the elevator so we heard a lot of noise from people waiting for or coming out of the elevators.
The superior room was cheaper but had a view of the pool and the beach and everything worked properly. It was also in the middle of a hall where we didn't hear any noise from elevator traffic.
Our main disappointment with the hotel was its isolation. Nothing is walking distance so you have to take a taxi (70pp by metered taxi to the Mall of Asia for example, although the hotel shuttle will take you there for 300pp). There is usually not a taxi standing by, so you have to wait on a taxi.
We were somewhat disappointed with the pool, which was uncomfortably cold and the circular design was not conducive to getting exercise or swimming laps. We ate at the hotel a number of times, but several times the meals were fixed price at about $60 per person, which was not in our budget, so our alternative was eating in the bar with the cigarette smokers.
