We stayed for three nights and all things considered and bearing in mind there probably isn't too much competition, then this place will do fine.
The room was clean, spacious and relaxing. Albeit there were a few very minor problems with a dirty towel and trying to work out the aircon. The staff are very friendly and genuine enough. I would certainly think you would have no complaints there.
Breakfast was a buffet, always open to medicrity anywhere in the world but on the whole, it was good. A fair amount of fresh stuff combined with left-overs from the night before.
The only thing you might want to be wary of is the fact that seeing as there is little competition, there were an awful lot of people on one of the days there and it made things challenging shall we say when a lot of those people are used to getting their own way shall we say. Not the hotel's fault, but I would not mark this down for cosy romantic break.
I would be unlikely to go to Sandakan the town itself, but if I had to then I would stay here. If, like us, you were going for the wildlife/eco-tourism then maybe look for places close to the noted places of interest. I thought Sandakan a drab place, not much to see or do but shake your head at the very sad sight of rubbish disguarded into the bay and on the streets. Who ever runs this town really needs to wise up to the fact that westerners at least are comign for the eco-tourism and seeing lots of people tossing cans and food cartons everywhere but a bin is a sad sight indeed.
