Not the best experience. Bathroom was not very clean. It actually looked like no one had ever even attempted to clean it :( I chose this hotel because it was close to the airport and offered a free airport transfer and free breakfast, however when I tried to organise the airport pick up, it was impossible to contact them. Their... More

Couldn't fault the hotel for cleanliness but it is very remote and well off the beaten track and well away from any areas of interest. Breakfast was disappointing - 1/2 slice of butter for two slices of toast, spoonful of beans and a fried egg and a couple of sausages - mainly cold. Personally I would not stay here again.

A hotel with excellent location near the famous Tanjong Aru Beach, it is economic, clean and easy access to all places, especially to the beach. Value for your money. The hotel provides transport to and fro to KK International airport.

Hotel room is old and tired, toilet and bathroom is a nightmare. The only good thing is the location cos near beach. Hotel is located inside an alley, it's dark and very quiet at night. Near airport. If you looking for foods you can just walk to the beach area. A lot of food stalls there. Must see the sunset... More

Nothing fancy about this hotel. However great place to stay before catching next early or late flight. They do have transport to fetch guest at the airport to the hotel. Incase you didn't see any mini van with Casuarina Hotel logo, don't worry just give a quick call that you already arrive. Room simple and basics. Can noisy from outside.... More

The service there is very kind and friendly. We caught a plane on 6am, and there was a bus shuttle to drive us to the airport. Still, they would provide sandwich as our breakfast. The price is very attractive due to the location and the service. Although the room had some flaw, but I think I would come back again... More

This hotel is located very close (about 3 minutes drive) to Kota Kinabalu International Airport Terminal 2. There is absolutely some aircraft noise you can hear in the room, but, that’s not too bad. Room is not considered new or modern, but it’s very clean, with a balcony and good view. Some maintenance works on the bathroom door is necessary... More
