No lifts
Dec 2018 • Family
It was quite silly that we had to change the boarding passes, and go up the escalator to be seated there and after the gates were opened we had to take the stairs down to board the ferry. It was quite needless to even make the trip up and down with strollers and the luggage. Someone seriously needs to think over about this.

Batam ferry
Apr 2017 • Friends
It is my first time to visit Batam even if I have been to Singapore many times. The ferry terminal is clean with signs all over to lead you where to pay, print your receipt and check in your bags. As a tourist, it may be daunting at first, but in reality, it is easy, fast and efficient. The terminal is inside the Harbourfront mall. You can shop and eat while waiting for your time to leave.Crossing the border from Singapore to Indonesia is a breeze. The bonus is that there are duty free shops once in the waiting area.

Long way from the ferry
Apr 2017 • Family
Very long walk from the ferry to the terminal, not very advisable for old people and kids. But other then that, it's a super laidback terminal. Clearing of custom was fast, not as packed as it was years ago.

Basic facilities, No Lifts!
Dec 2016 • Family
Been here in last week of Dec 2016. This is just a functional ferry terminal. After getting down from the ferry, you will need to carry your luggage through a long walkway until you reach immigration checkpost. Immigration is smooth and fast. As such not many tourists come to this terminal. This terminal is especially very convenient for people staying at Harris Waterfront or Holiday Inn (both have free pick up & drop).

In the departure zone, there are 3-4 shops for basic food items, bags, clothes etc. But there's no provision for lift to go to the departure area. We had baby stroller, which we could fold and carry; but this will be inconvenient to people on wheelchair. There's another food stall (Teh Tarik, banana etc.) near departure hall.

Was convenient years ago
Jul 2016 • Business
Years ago Waterfront was somewhat more busy and relevant. Now it has far less pax and thus maintenance and services has gone way down. The outside & inside of the building looks worn out. Taxis are not many. Services inside are near zero.

It is somewhat (maybe) more convenient for guests going to the two hotels, Harris and Holiday Inn, or for those going to the Cable Ski. And getting picked up by the hotel services.

Just a Ferry Terminal
Jan 2016 • Business
Don't wait any specialities here. You buy a ferry ticket, pass via fast-food corner, food shops, souvenir kiosks, go to border guards. After - wait for boarding in quite clean and air-conditioned lobby. Then - boarding.

This Terminal is too OLD
Jun 2015 • Family
The Ferry Terminal is too old for modern tourist. There is only a flop shop selling snacks and drinks. The terminal is extremely stuffy, warm and lack of seats. The surrounding is quiet and forested. Will not recommend to take or board ferry from there. I rather paid more for a taxi-ride from Batam Center Ferry Terminal.

Terminal ferry is a modern building but not systematic for all the passengers.too crowded sometimes.no place to sit before you can enter custom checkpoint.waiting too long for queue up.no tv or etc at waiting area.the management should do something to brighten up this area.
