After being totally bowled over by W Resort & Spa in Seminyak, Bali, we were contemplating whether to give the Sentosa Cove property a try. Although we both prefer Seminyak, they are a little different, so perhaps a direct comparison would not be fair (or maybe stay at Sentosa Cove then do Seminyak!).
As always, the service is excellent when they're not too busy, they can get very busy, so at times the lobby and breakfast were completely packed, and we waited quite a while for the keys to our room because reception were pretty overwhelmed.
In correspondence with the hotel over our reservation I mentioned that it was our wedding anniversary, and they took the initiative to send us a cake. A lovely surprise! They also upgraded us to a room that overlooks the pool and harbour, and if you're on a holiday that's probably the way to go, otherwise you won't look out to anything much.
A few practicalities: if like us you have kids who love to swim - the pool gets both morning and afternoon sun so it's the perfect pool! They only have 2 baby bath tubs, so if you really need one you might be in trouble, they do provide decent baby cots but no baby amenities (not that I was expecting any). There are so many great restaurants within walking distance of the hotel so it was easy for us to feed our toddlers and get them out for some walks.
Overall I do think its a great stay for children because it provides such a visual treat (even changing the light schemes in the room), and there are so many tactile elements for them to explore. They also provide floats, tubes and water guns at the pool, and the pool is very well staffed.
A wonderful stay :)
