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.
location and cleaness the limited restaurent choice
Paradise - had stayed at other Shangri-LA, Rasa Ria, and found Tanjung Aru to be equally wonderful.
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.
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.
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.
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.
A Wonderful hotel with great view and good facilities. The best place in KK No.
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.
very very very very nice hotel
Views and staff Restaurants are bit over-priced. Venician blinds separating the bedroom and the bathroom are bit too kinky!!
The swimming pool was good ! Furniture is a bit out of date. The group entertaining at the lobby is not really enjoyable while besides that the whole day the same back-ground music is playing, quite boring !
Loved Pacific Sutera.Good location very good service and Henry on front desk was the best.He was always ready for any questions.Rooms were good but did not like the pillows.If we come back we will stay in same hotel.Thank you to all the staff. Please if you can change the bed too hard.
Staff were friendly. Our children were upgraded to an executive room free of charge. Our room was lovely with a view of the pool and the sea.
Rooms and the view from balcony is outstanding.It is a huge hotel. There are lots of swimming pools ( but they are only 1,5m deep each). I dont like golf but if you do so there is a huge golf field. There is no beach at this hotel. There are 2 men made `beach like` places but they are 10m wide each. Maximum 10 people can use it in the same time. If you want beach do not stay in this hotel . Go to Nexus or some other hotel with a proper beach.. If you insist to stay here then there are boats to islands hourly. I suggest you to go to islands to swim. Also foods are expensive. Water sports staff on the boats are unkind. ( the ones in the marina was very kind) .
Hotel staff are very friendly Should allowed the window to be opened so that some fresh air can come into the room
Excellent food, friendly and helpful staff, nice grounds room decor a little dated, no flat screen tv, no dvd player
Excellent choice of restaurants ..breakfast buffet was very good Nothing
The room is really nice and clean, they also provide shuttle bus to city, really thoughtful. At night,there is a live singing show in the lobby lounge, it was also good. The time of checking in was too long and the staff of front desk was a bit careless.However, it was not a big deal, for the staff,overall, I would say, they are quite good and professional.
Good Location reasonably priced friendly staff and good access to town The cost of golf is extremely expensive for Malaysian standards and whilst the course is quite good and well maintained you are paying top dollar for the privalage to play the course
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.
I can use pacific facilites. It has many outdoor pool. It has too small private beach
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.
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
The service and the room facilities The quality and taste of in-room dining food
Excellent facilities, good location and value for money
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...
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.
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.
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!!!
Das facilidades do hotel 1. O check-in foi extremamente demorado, o que não é aceitável sobretudo num hotel deta categoria 2. O hotel fica muito distante do aeroporto e deveria ter um serviço próprio de transfers, gratuito ou a preço acessível (em vez de recorrer a taxis )
uma porcaria o jacuzi nao funcionava foram la 4 vezes e nada para irmos para os restaurantes tinhas que tele e levava cerca de 30 minutos
Das acomodacoes, fiquei na Vila e meu apto era muito bom com frente para o mar Os precos e a frequencia do transporte para o centro da cidade, Num hotel que fica a 45 minutos do centro, pagar $8.00 num onibus, cujo ultimo horario sai do Lobby as 17;00 horas, fica impraticavel, alem disso tem horario fixo para voltar ao hotelr Muito caro e pouca opcao de horario
I wanted to change my itinerary and bring my hotel stay a day forward, from the 21st to the 20th. I offerred to pay the difference in rate if any. Hotel staff told me they cannot do that for me as booking was made via a third party. It was actually made via a fourth party as Kayak outsorced it to getaroom.com. The actual helpline indicated in the booking email (469-675-5368) was possibly run by a fifth party. They were utterly unhelpful with my request to change the booking date by a day, even though I did offer to pay any difference in price. Rigidly cited some sort of policy. I went back to the hotel staff in person and tey also continued to refuse to help. The consequence was that I had to book another hotel for the 20th, did not stay at Le Meridien on the 21st and my money was wasted. I will not be booking via Getaroom ever again and I will be avoiding Le Meridien.
We loved it! I went with an old friend and we had a perfect weekend. The service was fantastic, the resort was beautiful (and so was the beach), and there were just enough activities to keep us busy when we weren't reading by the pool. Looking forward to going back.
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.
Every thing The A/C
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.
amazing. all amazing hmm, not a fan of the jungle walk. too long, plus too many mosquitos and pythons!
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,
customer service,cleanliness of room breakfast is almost the same those few days,air-cond. is too cold at midnight
Reasonable location, easily walkable to the centre of the town and the waterfront, though it is on a busy road you have to run across. Rooms at the back quiet, those at the front noisy due to road.
Just 10 minute walk to the famous sea food stall in kota kinabalu city
Room was nice, spacious and clean. Somewhat noisy due to the main road outside. You had to cross this road to reach the city which could be a real problem if you're not agile..lot's of traffic. The breakfast was very plain and limited...compared with other hotels I've stayed at in Sabah..but if you're into toast and coffee, it's ok I suppose.
relax and have a cup of drink the breakfast..
They opened the breakfast buffet half an hour early for our departure flight. Hard to cross the street in front of the hotel - very unsafe.
Low fare and friendly staff A bit far from city center and night market
9/10 The breakfast is very poor though our room rate is inclusive breakfast. There is not much food & no variety
The staff is nice and the room is clean.
The freindliness of the hotel staff Wifi connectivity at 7th floor are very poor
I connected internet cable to the port on the wall, but still could not get internet line...??
The hotel rate was value for money. room were cofortable clean and nice view of the surroundings.I will definitely stay there again The back lane was poorly lit. scary for hotel guest walking on foot from nearby shoppings.
It is very near to the shopping mall and eateries places. It is easily access to airport too. The room maybe a bit small as we have 2 adults and 2 children. Once the extra bed is in, the room becomes quite cramp. If the hotel provide spa programs, that will be perfect.
Gaya Centre is a new hotel in operation only five months. It has an excellent location on the seaside with great ocean views on one side of the hotel and city on the other. There is a large new shopping mall cinema complex across the street still only partially occupied. The rest of the city is only a short walk away. Services are basic hotel services. The facilities are new therefore modern and in excellent condition.Free Internet in the room is on cable only but works very well. The oceanside promenade is across the street and provides easy access to markets of various kinds. The terminal for boats going to island parks and beaches is only a few blocks away. In general, everything you need is easily accessible. There is very little negative to say about this hotel. They seemed to be having some problem with the room key cards that seemed to quit functioning each day so you had to get them reset and they didn't seem to be able to reset them for the duration of the stay - a minor annoyance. Front desk staff were very pleasant and worked hard to please but seemed at times to be uneasy with what they were doing, perhaps due to lack of experience with a still new system.
location in the heart of the city, clean room & functioning facilities request for extra bed not fulfilled (staff forgot), wrong morning newspaper delivered despite reminder previous evening, reception staff was not helpful when I wanted to extend stay - asked to reapply online outside of hotel (time was 10.00 pm, nearest cybernet facility a kilometre away)
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!
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
stayed for 4 days end of jan and had good overall experience.decent room ,clean very polite and helpful staff.breakfast was good with lots of choice.the location is 7km out of centre which is my only issue,it costs 60 ringitt return and obviously adds up if you go there once or twice a day,for me l would probably recommend only a few days for that reason,although there are shops and cafes all around the more upmarket ones are in the centre.
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
Nice layout and design Extremely small room
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.
The location of the hotel is ideal for travel around town area.
It is so comfortable. /
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.
it was far from the city and there was not enough restaurants and night livings around hotel
