5/5 Excellent

Comfortable rooms, friendly and helpful staff. Excellent location next to the sea. Private beach, very clean. Wide choice of good quality food from at least five restaurants with different cuisines. Not too busy, possibly low season. Most other guests were families or couples, majority Chinese with a few people from other areas. A little isolated and quite far from the city (Kota Kinabalu), about 45 minutes journey by shuttle bus or taxi.

Stayed 6 nights in Sep 2019

5/5 Excellent

The staff are all courteous and offer excellent service especially in the F&B outlets. I visited this property in 2003 and it is the charm of the hotel that made me go back there again this time. Food at outlets is still good and you get quality for what you pay.

3/5

Nice view, nice landscape. However, it seems they are short of staff. No staff attended to us when we reach, only 1 staff at reception counter, no warm welcome by the staff like other resorts. Also, food served is not up to the quality.

Stayed 1 night in Aug 2019

4/5 Good

Beautiful location at Karambunai beach. Stayed here a number of times, but age is starting to show at this very nice resort.
