Friendly staffs. Spacious, clean and comfortable room. Beautiful sunset view on the rooftop Certain guests were smoking on the non-smoking designated floor. It would have been even more pleasant if the Non-Smoking policy was properly enforced by the hotel Manager.
l'emplacement est magnifique. En fait leur formule est simple: vous payer le prix fort pour être à 30km de la première ville, ensuite ils vous font payer le moindre petit service. Ma conception du luxe c'est justement de payer un prix élevé pour pouvoir profiter des services sans me soucier de la facture finale.
kid's club obligation de prendre des taxis ou bus pour sortir de l'hotel. nourriture qualité moyenne pour le prix. Chambre loin de la piscine pas de chambre a proximité pour un tarif résonnable. Préfère la prochaine fois payer plus chèr et aller au Shangri Rosa resort. Nourriture excellente, chambre près de la piscine et aussi très belle piscine et plage.
L'hotel presente beaucoups de charme avec des espaces de circualtion qui laissent reveur,la nature presente est son point fort pour les sejours de retraites et de repos, son cadre paradisiaque laisse planer un doux parfum de romance, avis aux amoureux ..... La rupture avec la ville et le peu de navettes misent à disposition,peut etre pour pousser les clients à consommer d'avantage sur place m'ont fortement decu.Ce qui me semble encore plus decevant c'est les eaux stagnantes qui peuvent avoir un certain charme mais certainement ont un desavantage majeur a concentrer une population de moustiques plus qu'abondante,fermer les fenetres et n'oublier vos sprays anti insectes
Hotel tres luxueux, pool villas tres confortables, ensemble tres agreable. Personnel jeune et insuffisamment qualifie et organise pour la qualite de l'hotel
Paradise - had stayed at other Shangri-LA, Rasa Ria, and found Tanjung Aru to be equally wonderful.
Staff is always very friendly. Fantastic place to stay, with very comfortable rooms. The new spa (Chi) is great. Italian restaurant is quite expensive, while we did not think the food was very special. It missed the extra touch.
Location and facilities were fantastic. Not quite the relaxing time expected. Plenty of families having lots of fun and making vibrant use of all of the activities / facilities.
Joined some hotel activities such as bird watching, cooking etc and played tennis. Relaxed at the swimming pool. Checking in/out is too slow. Reception staff are not so efficient. The Managers are very nice though.
The food, the service and the staff was all excellent and our rooms were great. We loved the hotel itself but we found the food, water and soft drinks way too expensive. Although there was a some live music in the bar at night, we would have liked some music or entertainment outside, perhaps on the beach or near the pools? We found that guests disappeared after dinner and we either went into town or had to go to our room to watch television.
location and cleaness the limited restaurent choice
Room service is great, good private jetty, and good spa The swimming pool is under renovation , but it didn't mark on booking.com ,jacuzzi and steam room were out of service during our stay, private beach is too small.
A Wonderful hotel with great view and good facilities. The best place in KK No.
Comfortable resort and very friendly staff. Tanjung wing rooms were clean and spacious with nice views. Food and drinks were expensive especially when compared to the local prices.
very very very very nice hotel
Free hourly shuttle bus to and fro to KK town. Really convenient!! . Free WiFi service in the hotel lobby and the pool area. Good massage service but was slightly pricey. Spa staffs are very courteous. Nothing!!!
Close to city and islands. Good and tasty food. Knowledge of hotel staff poor.
convenience, next to the harbour, easy access to boats and islands pools were too basic, not deep. more for kids
Excellent facilities, good location and value for money
Good location, friendly and helpful staff, great breakfast selection and good facilities. At first we were given a poorly located room but this was changed without to many problems, the hotel food and drink is very expensive.
Staff were excellent and very friendly. Free upgrade to superior room with sea view. Rooms are a little dated e.g. small old TV, stains on carpets.
The service and the room facilities The quality and taste of in-room dining food
The location was good. Although Shangri La Tanjung Aru would have been just as good on hind sight. Regretted choosing Sutera Harbour. Initially given a supposed sea view room which actually had view of child pool and trees. We had to complain and they changed us. We had to trawl with all our luggage and child. On the last day of our stay we had no hot water and the electrcity blew out (didn't bother to fix this) because of a faulty iron which they provided. There was no iron or ironing board in our room when we arrived.
The sea view and the convenient services hotel provided. I love staying in this hotel and this is not my 1st time staying. I am a bit disappointed because the room seems to be old and the window binding not in good condition. Toilet's room condition not very good.
We had a great time. Club rooms and club amneties rock. The evening cocktail is something of very good quality.Location and overall property is awesome.. Old style tv even in the Club Rooms - Most of the Hotels have larger lcd screens now...Services at breakfast time in the lounge are extremely slow and the choice very limited...
amazing. all amazing hmm, not a fan of the jungle walk. too long, plus too many mosquitos and pythons!
Every thing The A/C
Beautiful nature and view. The cottages are clean and nice. Loved that many fishes and birds can be seen, quiet and only sounds of cicada is around. Great for relaxing. Food was over-priced, not many choices for long stay. As the access to mainland is difficult, would be nicer if there are more choices and local dishes available.
The staff were excellent! MERC was a nice experience. We had a superb seafood meal - snorkelling was great - as was the kayaking. Being able to swim and snorkel from our room was a real experience - the kids would swim over to say hi! The drinks in the evening at the Latitude Bar was a really lovely touch. We had some really quality family time there - intimate, personal atmosphere. We would definitely return - and split our time between Bungaraya and Gayana. Our initial impression was a little disappointing - location superb, however we had not been given adjoining rooms as requested (travellling with a 12 and 16 yr old) and the 'breakfast delivered to your room by boat' was not available. Having said that, the management were very quick to respond- change rooms for us asap and provided the breakfast we wanted. The intimate, personal atmosphere was superb - we wanted to stay longer! Only other comment would be that the first morning, breakfast was really lovely - small buffet and a la carte. The next 2 mornings were not as nice - obviously problems with the chefs or something - menu not offered although we were able to order.
The hotel is situated in a beautiful island in front of Kota Kinabalu. Pros are:location, hotel staff, snorkeling in front of the hotel is very nice, possibility to go also to the other hotel, by a free boat ride, that offers a magnificient beach in the morning-afternoon for free, Marine center where you can go and touch some sea-stuff. Restaurants.:I read some comments about the restaurants being a bit expensive, Think to choose your own fish from reproduction thanks by having the menu in your hand and that is not expensive . Personnel was very efficient: because of a sudden noise to air conditioning in the room we were offered immediately to change room. You wonder if sometime in an Eco marine resor, waters could be a little be cleaner, but when we and currents arrives this happens. Room prices are a little bit on the high side,
Wonderful location, excellent service from happy, friendly staff. Lovely pool that is good for swimming - not just a "leisure" pool. freshly cooked breakfast on the veranda delivered by boat! The arm chairs in the room are really uncomfortable.
Situation centrale, chambre propre, eau chaude, connection Internet sans fil dans la chambre (même au sixième étage). Le personnel ne parle pas très bien anglais mais est très serviable. Petit déjeuner : choix entre porridge de poulet et petit déjeuner "américain" sommaire (haricots en sauce tomate, oeuf tiède et une galette de pomme de terre huileuse et froide)... mais heureusement le grand marché aux fruits n'est pas loin !
Nice layout and design Extremely small room
The location of the hotel is ideal for travel around town area.
a. attached to the hypermall (1 borneo), b. friendly staff a. swimming pool was too short and water is cold. b. the price is too high after a different room was offered.
nice clean rooms - would come again location not in the city, but there is a fee shuttle bus or take a taki rm25
The hotel had not received our booking so we had to email them out confrmation mail. Our room was dirty. Hotel staff seemed uninterested in service.
the hotel staff is excellent, from housekeeping, cleaner, waiters, cooks to front offiice - everyone is excellent. Warm food is actually served warm - fantastic! Good choice of breakfast! hotel architecture and design are okay, but hotel esp room construction and layout are poor. Room is small, no place to walk around or pray for muslims. Doors and shower door dont close properly, bathroom door inconvenient and if not careful you or your kid could get locked in. Every corners are sharp - sink, shelves etc. Not a hotel for young children.
Ta new hotel so everything was great, the staff were friendly and helpful, room was very clean and comfortable and the buffet breakfast and dining room were really good although very busy also there was a free shuttle to airport ( though it only goes at certain times) the pool and gym also looked pretty good although we didn't use. Too far from city - outside the hotel you are stuck in a shopping mall, doesn't look like much else was around unless you catch a taxi or bus, but if shopping is your thing you will like this place (shopping in a mall was not our thing). The hotel is really nice but it would be better in the city!
it was far from the city and there was not enough restaurants and night livings around hotel
The staff were very welcoming and helpful. the breakfast buffets were superb. the situation was fine - at the enormous shopping mall some distance from the centre of kota kinabalu, but there was a free shuttle bus in and out...restaurants a-plenty were to be found in the mall. no
It is so comfortable. /
A very comfortable hotel in a very quiet location. Rooms are more spacious than many Asian hotels in this price range. Buffet breakfast has an excellent selection of Asian and Western food. Staff members are friendly and efficient and provide excellent service. The hotel is a few years old and the age is starting to show in many places so it needs a fair bit of cosmetic updating throughout.However all necessities work well. The rooms are not very soundproof so you may be at the mercy of your neighbours. It's location is at the edge of the city centre and is separated from it by some busy thoroughfares so walking access is a bit tricky, especially at night though it seemed to be safe area. The hotel does have a restaurant but if you want another eating choice it is a fairly long obstacle filled walk to another restaurant. Free wifi internet is available only in the lobby and is somewhat erratic. For 10 MYR per 24 hr. you can get in room Wifi which works reasonably well. We eventually moved to the Gaya Centre Hotel for the same price but without most of the negatives mentioned here though breakfast, if wanted, is extra....but in all a far better choice for us.
The standout factor for this hotel was the staff. They were always polite, very helpful, attentive and ready with a smile. Other good points were that the facilities were clean and I got the non-smoking room I wanted. The worst thing was that the WiFi network was very slow or nonexistent at times. The Beverly is in the midst of upgrading to a new network and I got stuck in the middle of it. Staff was very helpful and we determined that the issue was that their ISP or server was conflicting with my DNS settings.Other factors were that some things just did not work such as the room phone was a bit wonky, the safe's battery was depleted, the shuttle bus was down one day for maintenance and the lobby phone was always out of order. Location was also a bit problematic in that it is a fair walk to the downtown core and the crossings can be dangerous. Breakfast buffets were pretty much what I expected from earlier reviews.
The morning buffet breakfact was good, with variety served! TV, gym & sauna facilities were good. Staff very helpful,polite! Hotel looks run down, old; sink in room was badly stained & could not be cleaned.Air-con was not slow but thankful for the ceiling fan. Swimming pool water murky.
There is a shuttle service to town twice a day.It would be better if the frequency can be increased.
The hotel accomodated our family in one room at no extra cost although we were squashed to be honest. We all got breakfast every morning also, which we appreciated as there were no restaurants nearby.The breakfast itself has to be mentioned as it was fantastic every day, in my opinion. It was buffet style and an excellent mixture of local and western cuisine. The staff were wonderful, they all spoke excellent English and were extremely helpful. The reception/lounge area was large and comfortable and I enjoyed the band which played most nights. The bar food in the lounge was very good also and residents get a 25% disount on food which made it very good value for money. The room was cleaned to a very high standard eg our shoes were all lined up and our bathroom toiletries were tidied away every day. I have never had service like this before in Malaysia. Overall I enjoyed the hotel, it was a safe, comfortable environment to be in. The biggest problem was the actual location of the hotel. Although it was close to the shopping district it was separated from it by a major highway which we just could not cross. Every single outing required a taxi and the prices were set, there was no haggling and this meant that we spent much more than expected on taxis, The taxis here cost four times the price of taxis in kl so be warned.I Discovered almost at the end of the holiday that there was actually a free shuttle bus into the town.I Think that should have been made clear verbally when I arrived as I missed the notice.
Despite the age and slightly run down interior, the rooms were large and provided for a relaixng stay. For the cost it was good accommodation. All the shopping areas and attractions were within walking distance, The terminus for the bus from/to the aiport is about 200m away. Breakfast choices were adequate (Had better/had worse). There was no internet access in the room, although it was stated to be, on the website. The TV reception was bad and limited channels. The basin in the bathroom was cracked. Also, the pool was uninviting. Did not want to swim in it. One morning glasses and cups were not washed.
The bed was comfortable but its just the curtain & floor carpets were very dusty, it mades my kidz sneezing & asthma
Reasonable size room. Free parking. Wide breakfast selection. Strong air conditioning. Corridor smell. Room smell when first enter. Air condition unit emit sound after several hours of use. Thin wall - sounds audible from next room.
Hotel is good as it was rated as 4 stars hotel. Staff is nice and polite and friendly.Room is nice. Worth for value of money. The hotel is a bit out from the town area . walking distance about 10minutes. Nothing much near the hotel . just a banks.
Nothing bad. Better if more food is available in the breakfast
Les stafs de l'hotel sont tres aquillant et simpatique.
Très bon acceuil, très propre, service parfait, aucun mal à dire sur cet hôtel idéal avec un très bon rapport qualité/prix. Voir avec Christie de l'accueil pour les reservations d'excursions intéressantes. Nous avons simplement préferé au "guardiena" (restaurant italien de l'hôtel) le "little Italy" quelques mètres à peine plus loin. Rien de mal à dire sur cet hôtel ... il est simplement dommage qu'il n'y ait pas de piscine, notamment pour une petite détente après excursion. Mais bon, pour les amateurs de farniente il suffit de se diriger vers le petit port de Kota Kinabalu et prendre une navette pour l'une des magnifiques îles à 20 min de Kota : compter 25 à 30 rm par personne avec toutes les taxes (6 à 8 €uros) le trajet.
Très bien placé. Hôtel de charme. Personnel très attentif.
Everything is ok, just the room is a bit too small.
Comfortable rooms. Good location. The staff are very helpful and offer some good trips that pick up and drop you off at hotel. Wi-fi is not free.
Nice new hotel in the centre of Kota Kinabalu
It is near to shopping centre and the restaurant around the hotel is good choice for me as the food is nice. It is really a budget hotel but it is best if the price can be re-adjusted. Kindly of expensive to stay in with the price I pay. Not that bad.
Personnel très sympatique et extrèmement réactif à vos demandes : location de voiture, demandes concernant les activités à KK... Petit déjeuner extra ! Les chambres vers l'arrière sont calmes, celles avec vue sur la mer donnent sur une rue passante.
hôtel correct, niveau deux/trois étoiles, chambres propres et assez spacieuses, situation hôtel assez central sans charme particulier, déco chambre un peu vieillotte. accès piéton à l'hotel un peu difficile car il faut traverser une avenue trés passante
