              not having swim up bar open

            • Group of friends
              8.2

              Staff were very friendly and helpful. Quality of food was superb. Great location and shuttle bus made trips to the city very easy.

              More information about where to go and what to do would be helpful.

            • Group of friends
              10.0

              It was absolutely fantastic. We paid a little extra for a club room and the service and value for money was well worth it. Stay here, you won't be disappointed.

              Everything was excellent. No complaints at all!

            • Family with children
              8.2

              Good staff and amenities. Very handy to have a small store in the complex

              The food for lunch and evening meals was a little monotonous. But it is easy to go into Kota Kinabalu town

            • Family with children
              7.8

              We love the good size bedroom since we were upgraded to a suite and the complimentary trip to one of the islands was a good bonus. We had a wonderful time at The Magellan Sutera.

            • Older travelers
              8.8

              Staff were very friendly and helpful, food selection and quality was great, views from room were excellent looking out over the pool and sea and happy hour had great priced cocktails and went for 3 hours...all good.

              Only thing was the bed was too hard for comfort and carpets in room were torn and ripped in places

            • Family with children
              5.0

              I have stayed in five star hotels befor and i felt some of your skills in welcoming guest not up to standerd. It is a very big hotel complex and when checking in we were given no maps or details of hotel lay out. We were point to the general direction of lifts which was a little way from the main reception. On checking out know one offered to take our cases to look after till we left for the airport. The staff were all very pleasent but i felt lacked the correct training. My other gripe was we were sold a can fo drink in your 5 Sails Resturant that was out of date. It was only a can of Sprite when we told the staff they assured me that this was the only one they had that was out of date. No one offered to replace it with a new one just told us we would not be charged for it

            • Family with children
              9.6

              The staff were polite and helpful. I gave them tips for their good services and good housekeeping.

              You keep on having to pay and pay for every single activity.

            • Older travelers
              5.4

              The pool was very good. So was the complimentary breakfast.

              Blind in room and door to TV cabinet were broken. Luggage arrived late after we had to ring and ask where it weas. Wi fi did not work properly (hotel explained thhey were having problems), Poor signage meant many guests were wandering around lost (it is a huge building, more like a public art gallery than a hotel). 'Complementary' mini-bus always full so we could not use it.Restaurant meals were 70% more expensive than Sabah Hotel in Sandakan.

            • Family with children
              9.6

              We relaxed and enjoyed the lovely hotel with the water view and spectacular sunsets. We enjoyed the food and drinks at the 'Alfresco' cafe and happy hour at the swim up pool bar. We also had some great snorkelling trips to Sapi Island.

              The beds are just a bit firm. Otherwise everything is really lovely. there really wasn't anything to complain about. its a great place.

            • Family with children
              9.2

              The size of this resort is great for me and my young family and grounds were very well kept. We were booked into a Club Room and the Club facilities and proximity to activities, pool and shops was wonderful.

            • Couple
              7.4

              Loved the location, very handy to the airport, great sea views, lovely rooms

              The only small comment I would say is you had to be fast to get a sun lounge as there wasn't too many available

            • Older travelers
              9.2

              Helpful friendly service at all times. Excellent selection of food.

              To few sunbeds for such a large hotel at popular holiday times. Very small beach.

            • Group of friends
              8.2

              Beautiful hotel and room was extremely comfortable and inviting. Great place to relax by the pool and/or beach. Breakfast buffet was great but did not change much over the three days. Good variety of restaurants.

              The staff were not always helpful and needed constant reminders about small requests, such as stocking the minibar in room.

            • Family with children
              8.2

              The staff accommodation. I needed to extend one day and I was allowed to with the same rate. I also needed to ask for a late check out since my flight was at 6pm. They give me till 3pm. That's the longest ever given by any hotel I have stayed with. It helps with a toddler in tow.

              Just the old musty smell. Upgrading would be helpful.
