My family and I travel up to Malaysia quite a fair bit and this is by far the best resort we ever stayed. Its family friendly and the service was excellent. The entire time we were in Sabah we didn't leave the hotel because the hotel itself has everything we wanted to do - restaurants,spa, snorkelling services and island trips.

Our family stayed at the Pacific as well as Magellan ; this review is for Magellan. The location is less than 10 minutes from airport and 10 minutes from downtown making for an excellent location. Any island hopping / water sports can be accessed from hotel centrally located jetty, very convenient. I have stayed at this resort 10 years ago... More

Lovely grounds - huge - plenty of pools and that and the room was ok the bath was bit on the old side. Great views and a great place to stay to escape Kinabalu Town which is grim to say the least. Breakfast was mostly a Korean affair mostly with fermented cabbage etc to cater for the tour groups. Noisy... More

The Magellan is a lovely resort with amazing views and a massive lagoon pool. he reception area is HUGE and in true Malaysian style very open. The rooms are well appointed and furnished well. The beds and pillows are comfortable and the linens are first class. The staff are warm, welcoming and professional although a little slow responding. There are... More

We went to Kota Kinabalu for TMBT event. Since the registration and bib collection at Pacific Sutera Habour hotel, we think might as well spending 4 nights there with the family. Like previous years the next day after the strenuous hike up and down around mount Kinabalu, all we wanted was a comfortable and quiet place to recuperate! We managed... More

First impression is the huge size of the Foyer and checkin area at the Magellan. Sutera Harbour is made up of 2 hotels and one Marina complex. No matter where you stay you can use all the facilities. The property has everything from its own golf course, Olympic size swimming pool and 2 free form pools, Movie Theatre, Bowling alley,... More

There are 16 outlets in all these three buildings, free shuttle is provided within the hotel.

Spent a week at the Magellan Sutera resort last month, and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Fantastic pool area, several good quality eating options onsite as well. Very good recreational facilities and several islands nearby that you can take a short boat ride over to. I also found the vast majority of the staff helpful and efficient. Ferdinand’s restaurant is a... More

to sum it up, 3 reasons we think the hotel has the worst service ever that doesn't worth your money and maybe even costs your life. First, the worst attitude ever at the checkin counter. Second, the loud music coming from the pool garden until 11:30pm Last, the hotel employee pushes its guests into a taxi with drunken driver who... More
