We stayed two nights at Four Points, choosing the hotel specifically for the "idle" part of our Bornean trip.
Central location, waterfront, close to all attractions. View pool on the sea and city, great seaview during breakfast. Rich breakfast buffet (they had cheese and quiches!), with good mix of local and western food. Friendly staff, if sometimes a bit inexperienced (especially the pool staff), but the concierge service was very good.
The bar is nice, especially with live music. The ladies' night offer has a lot of room for improvement (such as including the cocktails on the menu instead of two watery drinks).
Special mention: during our second layover, when we had a few hours in the city, they were very helpful, even if we didn't stay the night.
We certainly enjoyed our stay, and would recommend the hotel to anyone stopping in Sandakan.
