“Definitely the place to stay in Sandakan”
Reviewed July 14, 2014

Stayed here for one night as Sandakan is the gateway to many activities & places in Sabah. Hotel is about 15-20 mins from the airport. There isn't much to see or do in Sandakan and excuse my western snobbyness but the town was a bit of a dive. The hotel however is the opposite and sticks out like a sore thumb. Rooms and facilities are what you would expect of a Sheraton hotel. If you are staying in Sandakan then stay here, you'll be glad to return here at night after being out in Sandakan plus you won't have to pay the prices you would for a Sheraton elsewhere and was a very reasonable price.

Lovely modern hotel, right on the waterfront with excellent views of the city and activity on the small harbour. Great spot to use as a base for other trips, we drove to Kinabatangan river for a river cruise, and then back afterwards. Left our suitcases in storage, while a night away at Turtle Island. Excellent value for money, stayed 4 nights as plenty to do in the area.

Brilliant hotel as a base for trips to wildlife parks and river cruises. The quality of service and rooms is brilliant and the staff are comfortable/encouraged to have a chat with you in the lift and around the hotel which is a great feature. The pool is fantastic, the rooms are huge and the breakfasts have the biggest range I have seen in a while. Do yourself a favour and book in as a base for trips around Sandakan to appreciate the luxury and comfort that lacks in the town itself.

This is a solid luxury hotel in Sandakan which we found at a good price by shopping around. There's too much 4-5 star features to list but the pool is amazing, the staff love to smile and have a chat while also being very efficient, the rooms are huge and bathroom is very spacious. The hotel is remarkably smart compared to the general feel of Sandakan which is quite dirty and unloved. Do yourself a favour by booking in as the sleeping point for travels to see the wildlife/river cruises as the comfort is a welcome relief from torrential rains or heat in the rainforests

A nice hotel with good views, small gym, great pool and well priced. Right in the centre of Sandakan so close to shops with a shopping mall attached. As located on the waterfront there is plenty of activity to view while sipping drinks in the bar. We stayed on executive floor at very reasonable rate.

Room Tip: Seek sea view and higher the better

If you decide to go to Sandakan in last minute without any tours or holiday plans, stay in hotel is another great choice. There are several small restaurants around hotel. McDonald's and KFC are near by. Swimming Pool in 13th floor is excellent !! Gym is next to the pool. You may choose to enjoy sunshine or get a good workout. Room is real good! You check in here will feel like staying in FIVE star hotel.

Room Tip: high floor, close to the end of ocean side. there is great view with the room, also quiet.

We only stayed at this hotel for one night but it was very nice. Not the best hotel we have stayed at but can't complain about the service or the hurl itself. The view from the eatery and also from the rooms if you get an ocean view room and fantastic though.
