Rated 3 out of 5 by David1259 Expected standard, nothing outstanding
Pretty ambience, nice rooms and good location next to restaurants, village and waterfront.
We were disappointed that most of the staff did not speak good enough English. Restaurant staff at breakfast took 45 mins to get us a bowl of cereal and a pancake. Breakfast cafe was excessively crowded, people were sitting elbow to elbow, there were accidents where trays of food were spilled.
Room service food was rancid, although we were not charged when we returned it.
All in all, for the regular room price, one would expect a far better standard, especially from a Starwood hotel.

Rated 4 out of 5 by MrTTTT Beautiful property and amenities but…
I reserved the Starwood points package but this didn't show up on my reservation so I had to question it and have it corrected. The drink coupons that were part of my package were not provided to me until I asked for them the next day. I had difficulty getting my room serviced and I told the welcome manager and the front desk staff but our room wasn't cleaned. I had to ask 3 times until it was finally cleaned at 10pm. The robes in the room needed replacement. One was ripped badly down the side and the other one had a large stain that looked like it could be blood.

I was worried about transportation to Santosa Resort World... because of the distance from the hotel to the theme park. It turned out there was no need for any worry because everything in the hotel in Cove, Singapore was well arranged with shuttle and very informative and helpful staff members, so all our family members were able to enjoy the area 100%. Also I was very much impressed by the vehicle services to a local shop (a drug store) to purchase a medicine for my kid having allergy.
This hotel cannot be better!!!
I recommend fully~~~ and am sure to visit again.

loved it! location was good if you dont want the hussle n bussle. there's plenty to do and see in the area on the island, taxi or bus though.
staff were lovely greeted everytime - very welcoming. decorations were nothing like i have seen, eye catching and imaginative.
food wasn't my cup of tea - guess im just used to the aussie food; but apparently the seafood is to die for (room mate said). rooms were tidy everyday - freshly feel. oh and the beds, makes me want to get a new bed when i arrive home, the best pillows and comfiness of beds ever!!
reconmend W with star quality!

Rated 3 out of 5 by Merylmc Disappointing staycation
Initial impression was very poor with slow check in and crowded reception. Finally arrived at our room to find it was a smoking room and very unpleasant. Response to the request for a room change from staff was slow and I needed to follow up several times. We were eventually found a suitable room. The breakfast experience was crowded and chaotic. Some respite was found outside on the patio. Check out was difficult and I had to ask someone with authority to correct our bill. A staycation should be a pleasure and stress free. It was not the relaxing break we had hoped for.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Nichochua13 Beautiful Setting
The W at Sentosa will hit you the moment you arrive at the door. It's decor is an eclectic mix of abstract,modern and avantgarde. We were duely impressed with the unique design surroundings and attention to details. The pool is by far the best I've seen and it was a pleasure to spend a lazy afternoon there. While it is not difficult to spend a lot of money to jazz up the hardware, what really set this hotel apart from the others was the human touch. Although they certainly not cheap I'd unreservedly recommend the W if you want attentive staff and a unique environment.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Jiemin Private pool stay for two
Overall, room was great. However, while making the reservations, I mentioned that I was going to arrive an hour early. Despite arriving on time for regular check-in, the room was not ready.
Staff offered drink vouchers for two while we wait for the room, and mentioned that she will come back to notify of room availability. However, after 30 mins, there was still no notice. In the end, I approach the registration staff again and it was only then that action was taken to check on the reserved room.
It was an inconvenience especially when I am in my 3 trimester of pregnancy and still had to go around checking on the reservations I made. I ended up only checking-in at about 4pm, 2 hours later than my reservation notification of 2pm.

I was kicked down by the corner of bed, it's better if there's some protection around it. If the makeup mirror with LED light will be better.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Chris18 So disappointed with W hotel
A so-call six stars hotel, but lacking the flexibility, warm & sincerity. Did not provide early check in as per requested, neither recognise SPG status. I had to leave my stuff at the concerige and when i tried to retrieve them, there are nowhere to be found. Gave me the room key and when i went into the room, they are still cleaning up from the previous guest who check out. No turn down service, neither refill the toiletries. Gotten call them 3 times before the new toiletries are brought to the room. My friend has a suite, so we pop by to have a drink - gotten call room service numerous time to deliver the wine. they delivered the wine without glasses and wine opener. spent almost an hour before we finally get to enjoy the wine.

Rated 4 out of 5 by MamaCassExpat Not a hotel for middle aged guests
Hotel décor is very modern. The chairs in lobby and around hotel are not comfortable, stylish but not functional. This hotel chain is all about looks but not function or comfort. The rooms were large and the bed comfortable. The staff was lacking in the pool area. The gals that walked around the pool had a bad attitude. They clearly did not like their job. You had to call them several times to get their attention. Every time they took our order the bartender had to come over to us and clarify the order. We were 2 couples at the pool for 6 hours. Terrible service. They hotel also hosted a Pool Party open to the public from 2-8 p.m. The music was terrible and blaring. We were not told this when we booked our relaxing weekend get away.

hardware is similar to W Taipei, but when compare to software (eg. dinner @ Kitchen table, staffs responsiveness when made comments on food, woo bar ambience) there are significant gaps

Rated 5 out of 5 by Pedigreebull Views to live for!
Gorgeous views, great location and surroundings. Room is nice. The views give the hotel a great advantage in terms of appeal.
Suggest: bedroom slippers can be thicker, toilets should not have been built that big (otherwise, it gives a non-modern, old feeling), that should be more than one person always by the desk on the 1F main door. When we were there, there was often no one at the desk although there were people attending to the luggage and traffic outside.
No hesitation saying that this is a great hotel to take refuge from the urban Singapore!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Double88 Singapore Gem
Stayed at many first class hotels in Singapore as well as Asia. W has only been open some five months and we have only just found you! Sentosa may be considered out of the way with the action taking place on and around Orchard Road but you are close by to the Genting Resort & shopping at Vivo City.
Warm friendly welcome & recognition of our SPG status. Wonderful room really good, great size, comfy bed & spacious bathroom with really good rain shower.
Quirky touches with mood lighting / colour scheme but spot on. Bose sound system in room a nice touch.
Food in kitchen table excellent with attentive service.
Look forward to a longer stay and chance to use the pool!
Thanks for a great stay this time.... You have the makings of a real gem...

Rated 4 out of 5 by Santa Decor and comfort ~ superb.
The W-Hotel in Sentosa Cove is unique in its modern design features that work 100% to give a totally unique hotel experience.
I did encounter problems with the lack of control of the taxi queue where those ignoring the queue were placed in front of those following the supposed system. Once this was brought to the attention of management it was quickly and efficiently resolved.
The coffee is still the best in Singapore and a genuine barista with a love of his job makes this hotel very special.
There are a lot of "overseas interns" but this is not a problem as the staff welcome them and appear happy to train them. Staff and interns are all customer focused and this makes all of the guests feel welcomed and valued.
My thanks to you all.

I loved my staycation in W Hotel Singapore. Was good service from the staffs and the hotel was so clean, new and chic.
I only faced 2 issues. Slow check-in. Despite being there at 3.30pm, I only got my room at 4.30pm. Secondly, the pillows provided in the room were too soft.
But we got a free upgrade to the fabulous room due to the late check-in and I think thatwas very kind of the hotel.
Its a beautiful place overseeing the harbour and the breakfast was also really good.
I had a memorable stay and really hope to go back there again sometime.

Rated 4 out of 5 by FD3S Great place to relax!
I stayed there for 1 night with my cousin to get out of the city and it was great. I had booked an away room but asked for the bigger away room although the pictures in the away room look like what I got so I may have not gotten upgraded even though I paid extra for it.
It was nice and relaxing and we were able to really just do nothing and relax.
My only gripe was that I had to wait over an hour and a half for a room which was a bit of a let down since I wanted to relax as soon as I got there and I had also indicated what time I would arrive.

This was our second time at the W Sentosa. Great rooms, spacious and comfortable. Great responsive staff who were quick to meet all my family's needs. Incredible pool with plenty of pool lounges and floating mattresses that my kids loved. Breakfast area is a bit busy but the food and ambiance is amazing. Can't wait to come back again. Thank you W Sentosa.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Gladiator62 3 D 2 N stay at W
Reception staff - very helpful and courteous
DVD repairman - disappointing, could hardly speak proper English - he couldnt understand what was the problem we had with the dvd player. In the end, I solved the problem myself.
Pillows - this has been highlighted several times in the Tripadvisor but nothing has been done. Your pillows are pretty bad, I must say - too soft -not enough head support.
Breakfast - $56 per person for an average breakfast set; lacking in variety and quality. Tasted better breakfast in other hotels at half the price!

Rated 3 out of 5 by WWaste W- Waste of time and money
Overpriced -quality of service does not warrant it.
Ordered a grilled cheese sandwich for in room dining- cheese was no even melted
Welcome letter in the room was clearly reused- letter was folded and creased
Asked about front desk about corporate rates, staff did not even get back to us
Upon checking out, items charged from the mini bar were incorrect. Waited very long for them to resolve it. and the staff did not even tried to improve and retifcy the embarassing situation.
In general very disappointed with the level of service quality

We have always loved staying in your hotel because of the swimming pool amenities and staff and your breakfast service. However, during my last visit, my wife who was not feeling well was rudely asked by the staff at 1.15pmto vacate the room in 15mins as I forgot to ask for late check-out when I check in (as the staff at most SPG hotels usually will ask whether we need a late-checkout but in this case they did not). She asked for half an hour extension so she can pack but the staff still insists that she must vacate the room by 1.30pm.

Excellent Service throughout my stay. All the staffs were always smiling to us. Very approachable. The hotel is so beuatiful with the lightlings especially at night. It made me feel like i'm overseas! Pool is fantastic!
There are some delay during the check in. Although i requested for early check in, the room was not ready. i would suggest that there could have more check in counters during the check in period to avoid delay in future.
i will like to be back again in the near future! Please notify me if there is any good offer coming!

Great boutique hotel in a quiet corner of Sentosa.
Responsive staff, nice big rooms for 2. Has a Bose system with blu-ray player in the room.
However no nearby beaches within walking distance. You have to depend on the shuttle bus to to the activity areas in Sentosa.
Would be great if they provide some newspaper for the day.
