-can use pools and all other facilities in The Magellan Sutera, the Pacific Sutera and Marina. That is a lot of pools. -staff members are generally very helpful except a few at concierge/transport. - Breakfast was a joy.
- our room smelt really bad when first check in. the linens were the problem. should do better at washing up. - a few staff members at concierge and transport were very aloof. - lots of rubbish on the beaches.
Lovely relaxed resort, fabulous pool options for kids
food is average, kids club was a bit too "relaxed" caught my kids just watching the fuzzy TV on a few occasions.
room, breakfasts location
Every thing was excellent except it is faraway from the city
Location is far away from the city
Location , nice view, transportation ,amazing staff and people
Increase the food amount and varities of food in the breakfast buffet for ex the cheese was finished.
- breakfasts were good and plentiful - pools/gym, cinema, bowling, tennis, golf meant there was always lots to do which is important in KK which is a bit of a souless place - sunset views from beahfront bar and marina bar - good quality rooms - fixed rate taxi fare only RM15 to go anywhere in town and only RM30 to/from the aiport
- restaurants were expensive except Al Frescos but this lacked atomosphere
Great staff Lovely grounds Fabulous food Good happy hours Great band in the restaurant
Nothing all good
Waited till 5pm to get my room! No privacy on balconies. . . Gym in another building.
The scene and surrounding of hotel is good & comfortable. Good to have shuttle bus hourly to the city. Two hotels with a country club in between so that can share use the facilities. Hotel staff is nice.
Large range of sporting activities
Eating in the hotel a bit costly
Room style / comfort / amenities / restaurant food (kebabs!!) / swimming pool / wifi availability / service / recreational facilities / bus to town
Hard to think ... nothing really!
General layout Pool area Restaurants
Difficult to communicate with the staff, especially over the phone Difficult to arrange taxis and checkout times
excellent customer services, nice food and very convenient to have frequent shuttle bus services.
An excellent place to watch sunset
A bit far from the city centre, no free shuttle bus
The bathroom and also the bed.
The pool is too dirty.
Staffs are nice and helpful. The hotel room seems a bit old but still good. At least clean and tidy, room size is bigger enough for a family.
Bad experience on booking local tour through concierge. We booked a day tour to Island, we never saw that bad service provided by the local agent which was referred by hotel. Late pick up, nobody took care us in the island. no one took care us at the pier for return. We didn't know which boat was drove us back. My husband used over 20mins on the island to search back our agent for help. After returned to town, no transfer was arranged. We need to wait another 20mins for the transfer back to hotel. So my recommendation is don't book tour thru hotel concierge.
A bit boring
Breakfast selections were not worth the money. I find Le meridien serves a much decent breakfast
The hotel was worn out. Facilities, room and restaurants were dirty. Kids play room was just a slide! Totally not value for money compared to Shangrila Tanjung Aru! They are the best!
Good location. Close to the airport & shopping mall. 5 swimming pools. Nice staffs.
The hotel gave me an unsettled room. I had to wait for 30 minutes and then move in the midnight. One big problem is about cleanliness. Every shelf has dust. I could not find a clean dish at the restaurants.
Extremely close to the airport. Everything you need is located within the resort.
Price is a little high
very friendly staff who fixed quickly an issue with my booking... excellent seafood restaurant (we sticked to the same restaurant during 5 days and did not want to change !), nice decoration of our room and chocolates in the room :) . Good internet connection even though I had a few short AC power shutdown (no more than 5 mn). slow pace life on Borneo and smiley people. excellent Gym, and pool... Sunset Spot with a glass of White Wine, a MUST !! Life quiet after 11 PM, do not expect intense night life !
some people said the beach is small...yes, true , don't come here if you are looking for a beach. This was not a concern for us at all ! Pool and Harbor are all nice and bring different atmosphere... Lack of good player to play Tennis :)
Staff are polite and nice .
Rooms recently refurbished, and what a good job they did. Bold move to use light/ cream colours and it works! Good facilities, nice pool. The sunset views from the hotel are brilliant.
It's a personal thing but this is a pretty big hotel and it feels like it. Can seem a bit crowded at times.
