    Marina Bay Sands without a doubt. I'm going back in September & it will be my 3rd time staying there. Rooms are beautiful, pool is amazing, the best you'll ever swim in. The casino is tucked away in the shopping centre, you can't get into it direct from the hotel. Shopping is expensive but a short walk across the bridge is Marina Square which has heaps of cheaper shops including lots for kids. Orchard Rd is a quick cab ride away & only costs a couple of dollars.

    Good thing about marina bay sands is that there is special access to it from the train station. Also there is the marina bay gardens which you can exit from the train station and its a gorgeous man made and natural garden. You can take a mini train tour there. There is also 2 domes there. One is a rainforest and one is a massive multi level garden. Sooo gorgeous! !!

    Just be warned there is heaps of walking involved but worth it.

    Raffles... Yes. It's top of my list. But ever so pricey, so not an easy decision.

    It's an option, but we're trying to figure out if the money would be better spent on other things.

    Another slightly cheaper option catching my eye is the Parkroyal on Pickering. Anyone know it?

    Love Singapore. Without children I would choose Raffles or The Elisabeth. Google The Wanderlust Hotel, I want to stay here next time we go without children.

    Any of you ladies stayed at Festive Hotel before? Trip advisor reviews are terrible but we have booked there with our family soon.
