We arrive at the hotel on Friday 30th September not knowing it was the malaysian bank holiday. The hotel was full so we had to wait 3 hours for our room to be ready. When we got to the room the it had the amazing sea views that we had requested. The room was very spaceous. All the hotel staff... More

Had a super holiday at the Tanjung Aru, the hotel had a perfect setting overlooking the sea, the gardens were beautifully kept, had a slight problem with our room on arrival but this was sorted out immediately, would highly recommend paying the extra for the Seaview, we were lucky the hotel was not full so we had no problems getting...

From the moment you step out of your transfer car you are met with a smile, pay the extra and have a Club room all of the staff are excellent and take pride in their jobs, well done thank you. Good location for the city and airport.

I have never felt so welcomed at any other hotel I've stayed in. Everyone is so friendly and genuine from the moment I arrived! The room and the whole hotel was perfect! There's so much to do also can't wait to go back!

From start to finish our stay at this hotel was nothing shorter than perfect We stayed in a kinabalu club room which meant we were met at the entrance and checked in at our room.this also gave us complimentary breakfast and club drinks amongst other benefits By far the best thing about this hotel is the quality of the staff...

Had one week's stay here in Sept. If you want to relax and unwind then this is the place to be. The resort was probably only two thirds occupied whilst we were there so no problem getting a spot by the pool or the beach. Sunset bar gets a little crowded during happy hour/sunset - note though happy hour only... More

Stayed here for a week, the rooms are clean and spacious (for an average hotel room) the bathrooms are modern and well appointed. We are traveling with a 3 yr old and there are many families with young kids, the restaurants and the pool areas cater for children so well, simple things like plastic plates and cutlery, kid size buffets...

We stayed in a club room for three nights in the first week of October. The room was spacious, clean and had everything we needed. The food in the club house was hit and miss, sometimes it was excellent sometimes average. The breakfast in the main restaurant had more choice. The staff were very friendly, particularly in the club. The... More

Rooms were very tired for the overall amounts charged. Pool and views very nice. Breakfast superb variety and quality. Unacceptable to have camp beds as a third bed for teenager and to want extra payment to have a proper bed that was available elsewhere we stayed. Would not stay again and also was indecisive about whether to stay here or... More
