Reviewed 21 May 2012

We had a terrific brunch with lots of fruit, pastries and a breakfast entry for $38S. Food and service were good and the view was terrific. After brunch we walked around the skypark enjoying the view. A cab driver recommended the brunch which we could not find listed anywhere (on Sky 57). In fact we called and were told reservations were not needed, yet when we arrived at the hotel and asked how to get to the restaurant we were told twice that we couldn't go to Sky 57. There seems to be some confusion, but it was worth persevering. Tower 1, ride the elevator to the top

Thank you for your review, TX4Traveling. I am happy to learn that you had a wonderful meal during your visit to Marina Bay Sands and I sincerely appreciate your positive feedback on our service standards.

With regards to brunch at Sky on 57, please allow me to clarify that Sky on 57 currently does not offer a brunch menu. However, they do offer an extended hour for breakfast, from 7am to 11am. Kindly also note that Sky on 57 is open to members of the public. They do not take reservations and tables are allocated on a first come first serve basis.

Thank you again for your review and I look forward to welcoming you back to Marina Bay Sands in the future to experience more of what our destination has to offer.

I stayed here because it looked like such an amazing building and set to become a new icon of Singapore. My expectations were raised again when I walked into the lobby as it was really impressive but things went downhill as I hit the check in desk. It took 20 minutes to check in (I also looked at other people checking in and they all seemed to spend 15 minutes), that feels really long after 20 hours of travel.

The room was nothing more than basic. It would be good for a three star level hotel but dissapointing for a four star never mind a five star hotel. Very noisy also.

Breakfast was hugely overpriced and one of the worst hotel breakfasts I've had. The basic problem is that there are just way too many people for the staff to provide the service required of a five star hotel.

Overall this is the most disspointing hotel I've stayed in for years. Stay away and sve your money. You should go up to the roof bar Ku De Ta for a drink as the view is stunning but you don't need to stay in the hotel to do this...the cover charge of SGD$30 is worht avoiding having to stay in the hotel.

Room Tip: Pick a room high up in Tower 1

We were excited to see this hotel and especially the pool, which we had seen in pictures. From the moment we arrived, it felt more like a 'disneyworld' attraction than a 5* hotel experience. This hotel is so large and houses so many tourists from all over the world that you feel like a number. The room was very large, and the floor to ceiling windows offer a spectacular view. However, there is no design in the room and very little furniture, so it is just a large empty room. The furniture is already worn, even though this is a relatively new hotel. The bathroom is nice and large with a large walk-in shower, but come on - where are the hooks? Where am I supposed to hang my towel and wet bathing suit?

The pool is spectacular and perhaps? worth the price of the stay, since the public observation deck does not include the pool area. However, if I go back to Singapore, I will not stay here. There are much nicer hotels (Mandarine Oriental or Fullerton) that are actually cheaper, though they don't offer that crazy pool suspended in the sky. I was honestly shocked to see that MBS is a 5* hotel, because this is in no way a 5* hotel experience.

This was my first visit to Singapore, and the stay at Marina Bay Sands made it more special! With an MRT station that drops you right at the hotel, it made getting around Singapore a cinch. This is a self-contained hotel complex, with literally everything you could possibly want. You don't have to leave the complex (although you will want to explore this fabulous city!) As most all people review, the view and infinity pool on the 57th floor is spectacular -- you have to see it to really appreciate it! The hotel has ample staffing and everyone was so pleasant (even at 3:00am when I checked in!) Everyone went out of their way to help! The shopping was outrageous -- every store you could possibly imagine. And, there were a good number of restaurants in the food court...from celebrity restaurants to their idea of fast food. The casino was huge...and it was packed! I only have one negative comment -- I ordered room service, and while they were prompt the food was subpar. How can you really mess up a club sandwich? Not worth the $42SG it cost. On the other hand, the breakfast was plentiful and delicious. But, overall, I highly recommend this hotel if you want a home base that is convenient to get anywhere in Singapore!

Room Tip: Request a room that overlooks the water -- mine faced the highway so not very scenic and very noisy...

Dear darinsc, I am happy to hear that you had a pleasant stay with us during your first visit to Singapore.

Thank you for your kind words on the service standards of our Team Members from the Front Office Department. I am delighted to hear that they assisted to accommodate your needs during check-in to ensure that you had a warm and comfortable stay.

The opening of BayFront MRT on 14 January 2012 has been a great addition to the various transportation options to and from Marina Bay Sands.

I am disappointed to hear that you did not enjoy the sandwich delivered to your room. I have shared your feedback with our relevant Department Head for review and attention.

I value your patronage and I hope to welcome you back to Marina Bay Sands to stay with us again soon.
