We have stayed at a few Four Points by Sheraton now and this one was almost as good as the rest. The staff, rooms, amenities etc are generally of a very high standard. The only issues we experienced were: 1) We drove there and the front driveway is a nightmare as people just dump cars anywhere. They need an extra...

To start with, avoid an overnight stay in Sandakan at all costs - it's really a shabby little town with nothing to do other than the Sepilok Orangutan Rehabilitation Centre and the Sunbear sanctuary. Anyway, since we couldn't avoid it, we stayed at Four Points looking at the excellent reviews, but we were overall unimpressed. Granted, the infinity pool is...

Perfect hotel to stay in Sandakan area since there is virtually nothing to do in Sandakan itself. Food was really good all day long and they make an effort to give you the best service they can. The pool is awesome.

The hotel stands out from the rest of the town. Sandakan is nice as a base for trips, but that is about it. The best thing about Sandakan is the Sheraton. The room was super spacious and great value for money. Booked last minute and found a great deal. It is what you can expect from a hotel like this,...

We stayed for 8 nights at this hotel in an executive room on the 25th floor and it could not be faulted in many ways. The room was spotless and everything in the room was in good condition.

Nice stay. Comfortable large rooms. Beautiful view over the sulu sea in room 1713. Two large doubles. Nice bathroom. Lovely outdoor infinity pool and reasonable drinks and food prices around the pool. Convenient for the centre of Sandakan (but there isn't much there - it's very much a local working town).
