Beautiful gardens and sense of spaciousness. Lots of wildlife. Friendly and helpful staff

Stayed 7 nights in Nov 2019

5/5 Excellent

  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities

Comfortable rooms, friendly and helpful staff. Excellent location next to the sea. Private beach, very clean. Wide choice of good quality food from at least five restaurants with different cuisines. Not too busy, possibly low season. Most other guests were families or couples, majority Chinese with a few people from other areas. A little isolated and quite far from the city (Kota Kinabalu), about 45 minutes journey by shuttle bus or taxi.

  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities

The staff are all courteous and offer excellent service especially in the F&B outlets. I visited this property in 2003 and it is the charm of the hotel that made me go back there again this time. Food at outlets is still good and you get quality for what you pay.
