    Fantastic hotel with great facilities, fabulous breakfast, good rooms and excellent views. The kids had plenty to do and the location close to the town meant everything was nearby. Would recommend it anytime.

    Occasional noise from aircraft due to the airport nearby but nothing I can really fault with the hotel.

    the facilities offered are amazing and all for free (infinity pool, fitness center, sauna, hammam, jacuzzi), the sunset bar at dusk time with a glass of wine, the complimenary breakfast buffet included in our room rate (so much choice), the staff is really helpful, I loved all the amenities in the room and bathroom, and finally, the room upgrade we got on arrival was such a nice surprise !

    the only comment I would make is : plan to have a nice pair of shoes if you want to have dinner in one of the hotel's restuarant, they won't let you enter if you only have sandals :(

    The water slides are great for the children but getting room & the rubber flooring is coming off especially where water hits constantly. The pool can get packed so if children can swim without a floating device then the adult part of the pool is a lot more comfortable with less people.

    As it's summer holiday season, the hotel was 100 occupied and I heard they actually have to send people away. Food quality is quite a bit worse than expectation for a five star hotel, it seems that everyone is there for the water slides.

    Poolside Rooms Activities

    The staff at poolside will not give you a towel after 7pm so beware The food was average and weekend buffet things get over by 9.30pm The staff seem to be in a hurry to go home post 10pm at poolside restaurants even though all facilities are open

    Proximity to airport Friendly staff Nice grounds

    Food poisoning from the buffet dinner Crazy crowds at breakfast and dinner Needs a refurbishment. Not what you expect from a Shangri-La. No 5 star Asian luxury here. Beach images on website are misleading.

    The location is conveniently close to the airport.

    The service, food and facilities were not up to par given the 5-star pricing at this location. Very disappointed.

    very nice location with plenty of things to do. Very nice and comfortable rooms

    room prices getting too expensive and may price yourselves out but it does eliminate the rowdy budget travelers though.

    Location and facilities were excellent

    Check out and departure staff , trying to charge for items not used . Also far to long and flipping between Malaysian and English. Very poor attention to the customer and more interested in getting it right for the hotel and not the customer

    Very nice place for Kids and leisure. Children and I love this place very much. Would come again for holiday. :)

    At certain hour, a group of some outside teenagers (believe is not staying that hotel ) joined to the pool.. As a parent to little Kids I am worry about my childrens' safety.

    Resort is near the city and 5 mins from airport so I spend less time travelling. There was a good buffet spread with kids food section. Best spot to catch the sunset.

    Overall very good but a special mention for the staff in the Kinabalu Club including Johnny, Sandilah (the spelling maybe different) and Calvin. These three were outstanding in their service delivery, incredibly attentive, friendly and informative. Nothing was a problem and every time we were met by these three with a smiling and engaging approach that made you feel special. Amazing trio, thank you so much.

    Very slow internet speed
