Excellent hotel surrounded by Borneo's north-eastern rain forest.
Rooms are very good but the hotel facilities are excellent. We enjoyed the large size pool with surrounding flowers and waterfall. Only issue was the waterfall slide was for children 13 years and younger - I would have loved the short ride.
Breakfast buffet will please all ages and we had a chance to eat in the Chinese restaurant and it was one of the best meals we had on our trip. And after the hot humid days the 2 for 1 happy hour was a welcome respite.
All in all a superb stay.

Stayed: August 2009, traveled as a couple

well. i my own option, i think sabah hotel need to improve their hotel, i mean in all angle... well it's a really nice place and peace,a place that we could relax our mind, green view....oh such breath taking....but still the room need to improve i mean the bed, pillow they need to changed it to the comfy and the new one( feather or .....) what i want to sunggest if they could put a theme for each room or each level. ya to tell you the truth the room is a bit dull..they need something to makes the room alive, fresh and comfy. And the smell to....everyone wants to feel likes they being welcome to the room and specially so they could feel roomy. well to ease their home sickness....anyway hoping something will changed b4 my second visit...all the best Sabah Hotel ..try to keep the 4 star rank

We stayed in an executive suite which i think was a mistake as the cost of it (around £70, which was more than a 5 star place we stayed at in KK) led us to certain expectations. We were therefore, a little disappointed. The place is a bit dated, the rooms not very stylishly decorated. The service is not great and the breakfast buffet was mediocre. On the plus side, it had a good pool and quite a nice atmosphere overall.

Some reviewers have criticised Sandakan as a town. We only stayed for one night (after a few days in the jungle) but we really enjoyed it. We spent the evening out at 'mile 4' (as recommended by Lonely Planet) and had a great night there drinking in the local bars.

Overall, it is a pretty good hotel. Had we payed less we wouldn't have been so easily disappointed. As it was, we felt a little ripped off.
