A beautiful location, lovely people and good accommodation but slightly let down by a lack of wifi in rooms. In my opinion this is an important feature of any 5 star hotel. Quick response received towards the request made. However time management to attend/solve the problem a bit slow (in our case, the room air-cond spoiled and the staff attending...

Excellent value for money. Hotel is huge & spacious. Great beachfront location. Large rooms, a little bit tired. Large choice of food for breakfast. Beachfront restaurant was good value for money and a good selection of food.

Came here to celebrate my wife's birthday. They had a promotion this month for RM200 per night minimum 2 nights, so we took advantage of this deal. As always, staffs were very friendly and helpful throughout our stay here. We stayed in the main building on the 3rd floor with a view of the South China Sea! Our room has...

I would not say that this is the best beach in Borneo. It is an average beach, but it is perfectly safe to swim: no currents, no jellyfish, and there are no sandflies. The resort is very nice. The grounds are very well maintained and the rooms have great views. The rooms are large, clean and very comfortable although prepare...

I stayed for 2 nights. First of all the hotel is quite far from town (which is not an issue but you need to know that). It's quite "expensive" to get there by taxi but UBER is really cheap. The personnel was really nice BUT when a hotel advertise free wifi I expect it to be everywhere. There was no...

After a jungle trek we were looking for a place to relax and found Nexus to be perfect. Their garden is big and beautiful (we loved the freely living monitor lizards in the pond) and their pool has a good size, too. The staff is very friendly and very customer-orientated and always smiling. Florina from the Pengyu Restaurant became something...

I reserved this hotel for a family vacation. 3 days before our flight I was diagnosed with dengue fever, so we called Expedia for cancelling our flight and hotel. The hotel decided they would not shift dates or give credit, and that if I would not show up I would lose all the money. In short, this hotel prefers to...
