We feel so sorry for the staff at this hotel who are absolutely marvellous, but would have to be able to walk on water to please some holidaymakers. We have been twice to this resort and simply loved it on each occasion. It's idyllic setting on the South China Sea combined with a five kilometer UNCROWDED sandy beach made this...

I went there for business trip for two night, cannot find in in my GPS since the name was change from Sabandar Bay Resort. Since I stayed on weekday, there is only 2 or 3 rooms occupied on that day.

This was obviously a nice hotel when it was built, but could do with a bit of sprucing up. It's not terrible, it's OK, but by Malaysia standards is not a good deal. I managed to stay in a 5* in Penang for £20 less than here. It's also a long way from Kota Kinabalu and anywhere else you might...

We stayed for two nights on our arrival in Borneo and two nights on our return. We very much enjoyed our stay each time, the food was reasonable, the free bar was a pleasure and the staff always friendly and helpful. The resort would be a good place to stay longer.

This is the worse hotel I have ever stayed in. The running water went off 10 times in two weeks; once for 12 hours and once for 6 hours. Frequently, when the water was on there was no hot water. The general maintenance of the hotels was extremely poor; rusted through downpipes, missing guttering, rotting decking around the pool, broken...

Our family of 5 just spent 5 days at Tuaran Beach Resort and had a fantastic time. This is a decidedly 3 star resort but has many things to offer. Firstly, the beach was just outside the door of our 3 bedroom villa which our kids took full advantage of. The pool was beautifully kept, the food was of a...
