We spent four nights in there during honeymoon, when I first walked inside,it gave me an old hotel feeling since it was a bit dark in the lobby. But after spent many days there, I really enjoyed my staying, rooms are very big and clean, breakfast buffet is great with lots different choices from south east Asia curry to western dessert. Near the hotel, there are lots pubs and good massage shops to relax during night, it's about 15 mins walk to jessie point if you want to go to ocean park. And it take about 5 mins walk to go Gaya street, which would be fun to visit on weekend.

Our stay was lovely. The staff were very helpful and the recently renovated rooms were great value for money. The breakfast buffet was extensive. Unfortunately the spa treatments were dissapointing, not great value for money and the spa area in general lacked ambience. Great mocktail free with treatment though!

Stayed over for 4 days, the Island is something unexpected, the hotel is bit old by i think it has been refurbished now, the location over the sea. The food is ok but not so Wow. it look more a business hotel then for vacation. Good to walk around in the city and see the normal life and the sunday market behind the hotel and walk on the corniche and try the city restaurants.

We stayed for 6 days, and loved every minute of it!! We were central to the night markets, shopping centres, dive centres and restaurants! The rooms were absolutely clean & lovely, and every consideration for quiet has been taken into account! The staff could not be any more helpful or friendly! The Japanese and Chinese restaurants were superb, and the buffet was great for the kids with a wonderful array of desserts. We had a massage at the spa, and it was a great way to start the holiday, and you can use the sauna & heated spa before hand. Only down point was no free wifi!

We stayed here for 3 nights at the end of out trip around Sabah. We decided on a five star hotel for a bit of luxury. The location and room was great, but the service did not live up to expectation of a five star hotel. On the first night the room was only set up for single occupancy even though we were a couple. The second and third day our room was serviced our towels were taken and not replaced. The shower curtain was moldy. I know these small details seem petty but other five star hotels we have stayed in managed to deliver.
The hotel seemed geared up for more of a business guest than a couple on holiday.
Overall a pleasant stay though.

Well we stayed for 3nights and thoroughly enjoyed the stay. Nice hotel, exceptionally clean was a bit noisy due to some ongoing going construction work. Otherwise awesome. Rooms beautifully done up and had excellent buffet breakfast. Location very central to jetty for island hopping etc.

Room Tip: The sea view rooms had a spectacular view of the ocean
