Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 16 April 2014

The room given was big enough with nice pool view. The staff was efficient with their great service. Shuttle bus is provided if you don't wish to walk during a sunny day. It's still within walking distance from waterfront station.The breakfast was served with simple western & some Asia food. It just nice but with not many choices. Overall it's good to recommend to couples and family.

I been there on March for a day getaway. I been awarded for by company for a stay in deluxe room. But due to the room fully booked, i was given a free upgrade to Deluxe Garden Suite where offer guests direct access to the hotel lap pool.

The service of the hotel staff is nice and friendly, with shuttle bus for easy transit to Universal Studios. And the important is the quietness of the hotel room. The privacy of using the pool is really given us a good time for the stay. Thumb up for the hotel

Room Tip: Its is a really nice deluxe pool suite esp for couple to spend some private timing.

The good:

- The room was really big and spacious. The shower room, toilet and bathtub were also big and spacious, not to mention clean! Whatever they boast about regarding their rooms were not exaggerated.

- The location is really out of the way, so you are assured of peace and quiet.

- The hotel grounds are huge. Lots of green spaces to walk around in.

Neutral:

- The location can be a plus or minus, depending on how you look at it. Being out of the way means you are assured of peace and quiet. You certainly avoid the noise like those you get at Festive Hotel. However, this also means that you have some difficulties getting in and out of the hotel during hours when the shuttle buses don't run.

It was easy to get out of the hotel early in the morning as they would call for a buggy to ferry you out. But nobody could confirm that we would get a buggy after 10pm should we decide to return late, so we had to make sure we returned by the last shuttle bus.

(You could walk, but it's a long walk in the dark, and it could be really dark.)

- We stayed in a forest-facing room. There was no panoramic views. Just a pile of green leaves and brown branches. Again, some people like it, some people don't, depending on what your preferences.

The not-so-good:

- iHome docking station didn't work. Wished there were some printed instructions.

- If I book a 3-star establishment, I'd expect a 3-star service. If I book a 5-star establishment, I expect 5 star service, so it was quite a disappointment to encounter:

a. A staff didn't know the difference between the regular shuttle bus (that runs only to and from the RWS hotels) and the special shuttle bus (that runs around Sentosa). And we got pointed out to the wrong shuttle bus.

b. A staff who didn't look or sound like Singaporean and who couldn't communicate in simple English. I do not expect such a staff to be stationed at the front entrance where guests, if they have questions, would naturally ask the staff who are at the front entrance!

c. A staff at the reception didn't even know about an on-going promotion even though it was listed in the hotel website!

d. A staff at the Forest restaurant counter didn't even look up when we asked her about lunch details. She just continued folding her brochures. I decided there and then I would not eat there.

Not to be petty, but I do expect 5-star service if I pay 5-star prices.

Checked in for a night in a deluxe room. Facing the theme parks and mainland Singapore. So you can see the cove water rides and the cable cars.the kings size bed can fit in 4 pax actually.
Very good service during check in.
My deal has a $200 ESPA credits thrown in. The hotel on its own has no pool or other facilities. However You can use the pool from the beach Villa or the pools from neighbour hotels.like hard rock. There are free ahuttles provided every 15 min to ferry you to other parts of resort world hotels.
Check in time is 3pm but you can go earlier to use the espa.if you drive remember to obtain a car pass free.

We stayed 3 nights at the Equarius which is a little hidden away from the other RW Hotels in Sentosa. Because of this you get the peace and quite you normally won't get from other hotels close to Universal Studios. They have shuttle buses that come at regular intervals so the distance wasn't really an issue. The room was huge overlooking an equally expansive balcony. The piece de resistance though was the bathroom. The huge tub, the separate shower and toilet. the hotel staff were very accommodating and very helpful. The Equarius is definitely the best choice when staying in Sentosa.

needed a short getaway from the city and I must say I made an excellent choice with the Equarius Hotel. its a little bit further than the rest of the hotels but this would mean that its lobby and surroundings are not even close to being as cluttered and noisy which I really appreciated, the last thing I needed was to deal with the crowds. There are frequent shuttle services so no need to worry about the commute. Now to move on to the rooms, we got ourselves a ground floor pool suite where there was direct access to the pool. the suite is amazingly spacious and tastefully decorated, not sure how old the property is but everything is still in good condition. it even comes with a wine chiller, nespresso machine with complimentary capsules and manymany bottles of complimentary bottled water to keep you hydrated amidst the heat. Service was polite and prompt when we requested for some extra amenities, check-in and out was efficient, concierge desk offered good recommendations for dining and on our departure we were offered a buggy ride because we had just missed the shuttle. All in all a fastastic experience and I will definitely be back when my next getaway is due!

Room Tip: ground floor rooms with pool access

We stayed here for 3 nights and it is a perfect base if you are going on a Sentosa island tour. Universal studios, Sea aquarium and Adventure cove are your neighbors. Although it was a maze going to and from Universal Studios and Ocean Park (hassle free though because of free shuttle service), generally it was a fantastic hotel. I especially love the back door access to Adventure Cove! Very spacious with 2 flat screen TVs and a balcony. Breakfast buffet has alot of choices, though when we had it on Stars Cafe (Hard rock Hotel), food choices and the taste are the same. There are also alot of Food Choices around Sentosa, dont miss Din Tai Fung!

Room Tip: Choose rooms with the view of the sunrise.
