Stayed here for a couple of nights after scaling Mount Kinablu, despite being such a large resort it's actually difficult to find, with less than brilliant directions on the website. The hotel is really well located in fabulous grounds, my suite was 20 seconds walk to a lovely beach and was of a decent size. There's a selection of bars... More

We visited the Nexus resort 10 years ago for our honeymoon and fell in love with the country, the people and the resort. We always vowed to return on our 10 year wedding anniversary with children (if we had them). We now have two children aged 5 and 6 so we decided to do it!! We were a little nervous... More

On the surface, the accommodation and resort set up could be incredible, but our stay left us frustrated and disappointed overall. Initially, our check-in experience was very poor, being left to lug bags through monsoon rain to a room which wouldn't open with the key card given. After a senior janitor's master key card would also not open the door,... More

Was a lovely stay here, room was massive and the beach was out of this world. It's enormous, you feel like you have it all to yourself. We managed to book it for a fair price but found the breakfast and others restaurants on site were very expensive. However there is a mini-mart on site. Would recommend for the beach... More

We had read a few bad reviews so we had no expectations. We were pleasantly surprised. The rooms are large and clean. The bathrooms have a shower and a bath tub. Food is good and the service is excellent. The beach is probably the best beach close to town unless you go to one of the islands off Kota Kinabalu.... More

Eerily quiet. Didn't feel safe at all. Food was average but beautiful 6km beach. The hotel seemed only seemed a 1/5 full. We actually got a free upgrade and was a fantastic room. Only wi-fi in the lobby. However staff were friendly. Overall good hotel but very weird and felt like something was going on behind the scenes

The hotel is really nice and comfortable with great and wide rooms with all the amenities. It has two swimming pools and also the direct access to a white sand beach with beach chairs and beach umbrellas. There are many different restaurants which offer a variety of food and meals: everything is really good quality and taste. The hotel is... More

The Kingfisher restaurant needs a bit of work. Music was incredibly loud and we were seated at the opposite end of the restaurant. This made it difficult to get our order across. Took three attempts, and each time the wrong food was brought out, so we settled with whatever was brought. A couple of the dishes were good, the others... More

My Family (2 Adults and 2 children) have just stayed at Nexus for two weeks. The accommodation was clean and well managed - with superb views over the South China Sea / Beach, from our balcony. The staff could not do enough - and their Customer service was superb (and really made it for us). Nexus Resort is about 40... More
