Sandakan, like most other Borneo towns is something of a paradox. A scruffy, smelly, gimcrack ferro-concrete sprawl overlooking a knockout harbour view. Quite what local or Federal inducements brought the Starwood group to this place I don't know but this is a fine place in a prime setting.
Rooms, facilities, food and beverage, hygiene and value for money all score highly. Front of house the reception and concierge staff were excellent and when I get great service I like to name names, so thank you Jayson on reception.
My only criticism - only two working elevators out of three during a busy Chinese New Year meant long waits.
