Marina Court Resort Condominium
Reviewed August 24, 2013

Ours was a 3-bedroom appartment managed by mr. Donald who was very helpful and friendly. Furniture is old, wifi not so good. Bad maintenance inside the appartment (e.g. attachment for showerhose broken, window latch broken), not so very clean but doable. No knives or glasses available in the appartment we rented. If we would have asked mr. Donald, he probably would have supplied us, we didn't bother. The location is good and a low price considering the fact that the appartment is spacious. My kids enjoyed the swimming pool. Plenty of restaurants and shops close by.

The location of the hotel is fantasic . The major sightseeing such as night market is just a few block away. We booked a family suite. The room is tidy and clean.


We have an accident at the last day before we leave the hotel. Our kids went to the pool to play around. Suddenly, His foot was badly injured and the cut is very deep indeed. We cannot stop the bleeding. Finally the hotel staff assisted us to the closet clinic by min vans. He finally got 3 stitch .The clinic ask for the medical fee. Oh my god. Our wallet is still at the hotel. We call the hotel for assistance.They pay the medical fee at last. The finding of the accident at the pool is that we believe there is some foreign object drop from the next construction building.

I stayed in one of the North Borneo Paradise units (with the red dining room wall). Overall if you are travelling with a group and or require cooking facilities this is a great property, close to the waterfront restaurants, close to shops, bars etc in a great location.
This property currently has water views but once the building across the road is finished there may not be water views anymore. The room however does overlook the pool.
The room has great cooking facilities, laundry facilities, free wifi (which had great connection) and pay TV. The rooms are clean with air-conditioning, a balcony, 2 bathrooms (one with a bath) it was spacious and overall a great unit. We felt secure and safe in the apartment.
The beds were the only let down, I do not like a hard mattress and the mattress was very hard and I didn't sleep very well. Also if you are a light sleeper from external noise and rooms above you it can be quite noisy.
Marcia who looks after the rooms has excellent customer service and looked after us during our stay, she is very helpful with information, organising activities & taxi's for you.
The restaurant at the Marina Court Resort Condominium we did go to try but they were not friendly and really didn't want us in the restaurant so we didn't try them again.
When we arrived as it is a private unit we had to call Marcia, if you don't have an international mobile you can call through reception and it will cost around RM4

I stayed with my wife and 2 kids in a 3-bedroom apartment managed by MSC Global, which was very poorly furnished and in need of renovation.
Location is good, near waterfront, nightmarket and shoppingmalls.
Swimmingpool is good.
Our host Mr. Donald was very helpfull.

This place is very conveniently located close to a range of great eateries and restaurants. To get to the waterfront is a short walk.

The apartment we stayed in was a 3 bedroom one with a washing machine and free (fast) internet. Being able to do your own washing can save you $$.

The rooms are OK, with slightly garish fit-out, a few stains are evident on the walls. The apartments are clean and airconditioned, everything works perfectly well. The rooms are serviced, which means they come through daily and give a cursory cleanup and fresh towels. This is all you really need.

There's TV with about a million channels, so if you get a bit weary of the surrounds then you can chill inside. There's also a great pool to swim in.

Kota Kinabalu is a vibrant city which is pretty clean. If you are a city type you'll probably love it. We are more nature lovers, but it was still an interesting place to visit. People are very friendly, it feels extremely safe and there's a surplus of great food to be had.

Would definitely stay at Marina court again.

We were here twice in june/july, the apartments are large with 3 bedrooms, living room, kitchen and two bathrooms. The staff service however was nothing more than average, and the room cleaning was done late in the aftenoon in just a couple of minutes. You can have breakfast at the reception, but we definitely have had better meals in KK. There are two pools available, none of them have sunbeds. Internet is available at the reception area, they give you a password valid for three hours, but it is not really good. There are some ok restaurants close to the hotel near the sea.
All in all this is an average apartment hotel at a reasonable price.

We stayed with QQ Boutique apartments at Marina Court. The apartment itself is about 3 star which was great for our kids as they could play around without us thinking they where going to wreck the place. We had a three bedroom apartment which was big enough for the five of us. Miss Wong our host was fantastic. Our flight was delayed by more than 3 hours and she was still there to greet us at 3am and show us to the apartment. Unfortunately on the beds broke. Once again within 30 minutues of ringing Miss Wong the maintenace guys where there and the bed fixed.

If I was just going to rate the acomidation I would only give it 3 stars but given its great central location and the great service we receiced I bumped it up to 4 stars.
