KK with children- which hotel

Hi. My husband and I are traveling with our 7-year old daughter and 5-year old son. We are choosing between 3 hotels only. Please advice which is best, considering we have kids: (a) The Magellan Sutera, Sutera Harbour Resort; (b) La Meridien Kota Kinabalu; (c) Promenade Hotel Kota Kinabalu.

2. Re: KK with children- which hotel

Hi, just returned from the Magellan Sutera. Our 3 kids (13, 10, and 6)loved it. There is a kids club (about RM25 for the first 6 hours of use)a playground, recreation centre where you can hire bikes play pool etc, and a few different pools which are suitable for children. The beach area is tiny and is not worth bothering about. There is a 10 pin bowling alley which we also used, and a cinema which we didn't use( had seen all of the movies.) It's very close to the city (5 minute drive)- so easy to go in on the shuttle bus (which runs hourly) for meals or shopping. If you are in to water sports there is an adjoining marina - easy to organise a trip out to the islands for swimming, snorkelling etc.- which is well worth doing , or book parasailing, jet-skis etc.
