Stayed here for 4 days and we typically can find various facilities and entertainment to suits us. We played golf, yelling at the karaoke, bowling, swimming, not to mention chilling out at the pool bars and snorkeling. It was great but we ended up sacrificing our time to explore outdoor trips except to see Mt Kinabalu and some suspended bridge....

We had a lovely time at the Pacific Sutera. Seaview room was clean and comfortable with bathroom toiletries replenished plentifully. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Buffet breakfast was scrumptious and a ina clean setting. The shuttle bus costing Aus $1 is a great help as the hotel is about a 20 minute walking distance to the shopping centers ....

We stayed for five days at the Pacific and the hotel is pretty much the best location to stay near the city. One big provlem is the pricing on their drinks on Breeze beach club that serves the pool area. $8 for a mug of beer and that is a happy hour price. No wonder the cocktail waitress is struggling...

Had a bad first impression on their front desk operation.

Had a lovely stay at the Magellen. The room was spacious although a little on the tired side but the view more than made up for this. Was also disappointed with the breakfasts.

Enough things happened during my one night stay at the Magellan to leave a bad taste in my mouth, literally. It started with my room not being ready, at 4PM!

Went for a work conference and the facilities were faultless. Obviously as a paid trip through work we were indulged but I would stay here privately if I visit KK in the future. Amazing pool, beautiful food, prompt and friendly service and magnificent outlook - what more could you ask for!
