Friends at sentosa resort & spa, we are on budget, help!

We are a family of 4, two kids 5 and 3 years old., driving from kl to singapore to visit my friends who are staying at sentosa resort & spa at the end of jan 2012.

We are on a budget, please recommend a reasononable hotel on sentosa, we will probably need 2 rooms, or a family room, as both kids need their own bed, or on the mainland with easy access to sentosa, bearing in mind we have the car.

Also, our daughter needs a nap in the afternoon, would you guys recommend that we stay on sentosa and not bother with staying on mainland?

Thanks in advance!

On the contrary we usually recommend to stay in the city center and not to bother with accommodation on Sentosa, as the city is compact with perfect public transport system. Staying downtown also gives you:

wider hotel choice

proximity to the city sights

more eating options

shopping opportunities

access to transport system

Sentosa is not for the budget conscious. Accomodation, meals n attraction fees are on the up side. Better to stay on the mainland where u have more options as suggested above.

I think the cheapest place to stay in Sentosa is at Costa Sands. http://www.costasands.com.sg/sentosa/ Do check the website and prices and see if you're comfortable with the cost. Otherwise, like others have mentioned, it would be cheaper and generally better to stay on the mainland.

We usually stay at YMCA one orchard road, or other similar budget accommodation when we visit Singapore.

Our sole intention this trip is to meet our friends staying at sentosa resort, but realise that staying on sentosa is probably unnecessary and out of our budget!

Thanks for the advice everyone!
