Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Lovely relaxing stay at The Barracks. Staff are so friendly and obliging. Rooms are beautifully furnished. Canapés and drinks in the evening were much appreciated and delicious. We got great use out of the lap pools. Special thanks to Vianney, Vivien and Emily.

Hotel's Favourite
Wanted a break in Sentosa and chose the Barracks because it was a boutique hotel. Have been to Sentosa before, staying in another 5 star resort, but wanted a quieter hotel this time. Have stayed in many SLHs in various parts of the world, but the service at the Barracks was outstanding and exceeded my expectations. All the staff are lovely and helpful, but special mention must be made of Adikin and Vivien who made our stay so memorable. They went beyond what I would expect of a luxury hotel. Through a conversation, Adikin found out which hotel in Singapore we would be next moving to and arranged for the hotel car to drop us off. Vivien, knowing we were going to a Grillfest on the beach, produced a picnic rug. And the hotel buggy and car sent us to various other places on the island. This may not be possible for every guest due to car/buggy availability, so don't necessarily expect this service if you are staying at the hotel!! However, this is my experience and the fact that the staff are so attentive and ready to assist whenever they can, makes this stay so special. Even the chambermaid noticed our love for reading and left two bookmarks for us with a note saying that she noticed we loved to read and hope we will like the bookmarks!! I thought that was awesome. These are just some examples of the outstanding service we received. Also received a birthday cake and a cute Barracks teddy bear for my birthday. The breakfast is generous and of lunch portions and I definitely prefer it to the buffet style. You can sit in easy lounge chairs to enjoy them, either indoors or outdoors and they are served in courses with starters, mains, fruits, coffee/tea. You can select to have a Western or local breakfast or a combination of both. I would recommned the nasi lemak which is yummy and instagramworthy. There is also an optiion for you to have your breakfast at Le Fauboug, a French brasserie just metres from the hotel. As the lounge is opened whole day, you have access to snacks and non alcoholic drinks throughout the day and canapes and alcoholic drinks during the Cocktail hours. The rooms are 39 sq which are a reasonable size and we stayed in a Classic room on the first floor, with a high pitched roof ceiling and a terrace with table and chairs overlooking the pool. All rooms overlook the pool, I think, and those on the ground floor have direct access to the pool. I don't mind no direct access to the pool as I am not a swimmer and like the extra privacy. There are two pools of equal size. My daughter enjoyed the pool which is 30m long (good enough for laps) and lounge chairs for you to laze on as you sip your drinks from the lounge. The stay was relaxing and peaceful in a historical colonial sytle building with lots of greenery. In fact, the palm trees and immaculate gardens is one of the great attractions of the hotel. I am looking forward to returning there the next time I am in Sentosa and need a break. Such a refreshing change if you don't want the crowds at a large resort hotel. Well done to all the staff at the Barracks. Evelyn SWC

I cannot speak highly enough of the wonderful staff at this hotel. They really want to do everything they can so you feel relaxed and cared about. I am claustrophobic so they were worried that the room wasn't quite right (they only found this out by chance as they have a lift and i can't go in lifts) and they insisted on finding another room. I have never had such lovely attention to every small detail! Nadim is a lovely cheerful happy man who went above and beyond for us he actually made our whole trip. The canapés are delicious and the welcome cocktail is something you REALLY have to try for yourself.....I kept going back out was my favourite drink (and it wasn't alcoholic). Thank you to everyone at the hotel you are all wonderful people 🥰

Room was really nice, and the bed was comfortable. Worth the money and service was great too. Would be better if the breakfast could order double sets instead of limiting to 1 set per pax. Generally the staff was nice and even provided an upgrade of the room.

We travel to Singapore often from Perth. This last trip we moved from the downtown to Sentosa for the last two days. The Barracks is a wonderful property with staff that multitask and whose sole goal is to make you feel at ease and special. We wished we had stayed longer.

Great, tranquil in gorgeous surrounds. The attention to detail and quality of the hotel matched with attentive and polite staff made our stay very special. The care with breakfast and canapes everyday to ensure there was no gluten/corn or soy made the time even more special. We have only high praise for The Barracks. (missed a 5* on cleanliness because of the few peacocks ...)_.
