    Surrounded by golf field, very beautiful scenery. I don’t know how to play golf but one night stay is enough for me to enjoy the facilities there and have my own relaxing moment from the hustle and bustle of the city life. Good varieties of food for breakfast. I have nothing to complain about, everything is good and value for the money.

    Huge room with relaxing view”

    My Husband is a stage 4 cancer patient & had completed his treatment. It's a tough time for family & I decided we all needed a little overnighr break. Made the best decision by booking at this hotel. The staff is extremely attentive. Made sure we are comfy & well taken care of. The suite was huge with amazing view of the gold course, the ponds etc. We got to watch a wonderful sunset on our own deck. Ordered room service as we wanted to enjoy the deck more. The food was tasty! And we didn't wait long. Kids were hungry from splashing around in the pool so that was great. There're 2 pools, the little ones love the small one. There's also a playground with lots of running space. Security is top notch as we see patrols being done wherever we went. A decent selection of breakfast spread. My Husband is on strict soft diet & was happy that he could choose some porridge, yogurt..even the bread & butter pudding was soft enough for him to enjoy & is his favourite. Overall, a super enjoyable little stay.

    Security and FB ”

    Overall experience was excellent. Area needs improvement are 2 areas : - 1) The carpark is too dark. Came back 2 nights with all the lights being switched off when I came back with my family. Hotel should consider letting the lights on till at least 2am. Saving electricity at the expense of the guests security is definitely not a good idea. 2) Food quality is so so. Need better choices and improve on the taste. Bfast spread is acceptable but should have more varieties 3) FB in room service experience - should have at least 1 or 2 staff that is well conversed in English. It feels like I am in China when the staff is lacking of English language.

    Welcome treats was given to my in law room 5040 but not ours 5049. Best part we paid for the stay. Ordered food on 29th night , took them 1hr to bring fries, garlic bread pasta and soup. My daughter, my In-laws who are in their 70s and I down with fever was hungry. After eating we left the culinary outside the room. On 30th Monday when We left hotel at 1230pm the food was still outside without clearing. Front desk was not willing to extend the time till 1pm . I was down with fever and needed the extra sleep , my hubby asked front desk refuse and allowed only 30mins extra. Its monday and not much people in the hotel. My whole row was silent with no one around. Pls dont tell that it was highly used on MONDAY. forest City Marina was AWSOME compared to the GOLF. Please cultivate empathy and Cleanliness to the staff. Thanks for an unpleasant stay.

    I would and would not recommend this property”

    Pros: Relatively value for money considering you ha e a decent size room, helpful front office and a prompt response concierge. If you are from China, this place is for you. Its like a mini China community out of China. Cons: Located in a secluded location and far from shopping malls, restaurants and other amenities. Only good for people with cars. Don't bother asking if you can have a game of golf if you are alone. They won't entertain one ball, even when the course is not crowded. Golf staff at the golf reception area are not helpful at all. The only one that is very good, ask for Mr Sun.

    really love the tranquility and the facilities; only shortfall is the breakfast area. There are many delicious food items and we love it. However some part of and staff services really need to improve. the first morning my boyfriend had a diarrhea after eating the ham which was already suspected to had turned sour (the hame was a bit slimy and sticky too), the 2nd morning it was my turn as I accidentally ate the spaghetti from the cold dish section which also, turned sour. the egg section was slow, the chef fail to recognize customers, gave wrong order to wrong customer and many sunny side up eggs on the buffet tray were burnt. saw service staff sweeping the residue of food from table to the floor when turning over the table. Whoever in charge of the breakfast restaurant needs to be more alert on how long the food had been on the buffet table and is it within the safe to consume period.
