Comfortable room, clean, nice reception staff( especially the young lady with the American accent). Good location. Expensive laundry!! we asked them to wash a tiny amount of laundry and they charged us as much as one night stay. Slow Wi-fi. Breakfast should have a better western selection.

My family and I went to this hotel last Feb and it was superb. The price is not as expensive as i thought and I even got room with sea view! Overall, the facilities provided by the management team is always in a top condition. The hotel location is strategic (harbour mall, stalls) though bandar sandakan has few things to... More

It's in sandakan town, which can be a pretty dodgy area at night. Locals generally tend to stay away from sandakan town due to the massive number of foreign workers hanging around town. Its location is what it is, next to four points Sheraton, harbour mall(a sad attempt at a shopping mall) & the market. With nice views of the... More

This hotel was clean, had WiFi, and offered nice waterfront views and a good buffet breakfast. However, the AC didn't really work very well for anyone in our group, which meant sleeping wasn't terribly comfortable. However, it is probably one of the nicer places to stay in the city.
