Gd pool & water play facilities for the kid

Hmm... not sure y the extra bed requested was not added before check in but only at around evening time when i check with the receptionist. Even then I had to call a 2nd time to request for the bed to add in so that my dad could take a nap arnd 7plus. I was surprised that the TV in the room was so small, we were all seating at the edge of the bed to watch tv after my kid was asleep. Service at the hard rock cafe during lunch was horrible. As we didnt have much appetite, we ordered 2mains to share between 3adults and 1kid. Straight after ordering, the waitress kept all the extra utensils. Food took very long, despite only having 4other tables filled up only. Surprised at the low service standards when the waitress put the drinks down on the table before flinging the table coasters down for us to place it ourselves under the glasses. I thought it was a bit substandard considering the highly raved reviews I've previously heard abt their service. Would still come back for the water play for my kid but once she outgrows I'll not go back anymore.

pleasant stay

We checked in late afternoon on 22nd Dec. 2014. Was greeted by friendly receptionist and were given two adjoining rooms on the second floor. We asked if we could have higher floor but was told that if we take the higher floor, it would be a smoking room. We do not want a smoking room and therefore took the 2nd floor instead. We were disappointed that the second room does not have a bath but only a shower. It would be more comfortable if the second room has a bath. We stayed in Moevenpick in Sentosa, Singapore and were given rooms with baths for both rooms and the same for the Crown Plaza at Singapore Airport. They were all four stars status. Nonethelss we did enjoy our stay at the hotel as we could walk to the beach from the hotel and the beach was pretty clean. One more comment is that the gym appear to be a bit small as there were not enough treadmills and 3 out of four times that I was there at approx. 9am , all the treadmills were in use. The gym could be slightly bigger. Nonetheless, we did enjoy our stay at the Hotel and we will still recommend it to our friends.

Hotel nice but bad service

In the morning, my family want to go for our breakfast at the restaurant but we will stop at the lobby. The staff ask for our room number and tell us to go to another place for our breakfast. The staff stop us like we do something wrong and he didnt give us reason why we need to go another place for our breakfast! It a instruction that we need and must follow. It does not treat us as customers at all. That very bad.
