        Individual guest reviews

        • Great location and nice long beach. Good value for money, staff were friendly and the room was great, spacious and cleaned to a high standard daily. Happy hour and the snacks at the pool bar was probably best.

          Main hotel has insufficient capacity and the slow service being a major problem. Main restaurant is poor.

        • Location is beautiful and the beach facilities are ok even not all available. The staff are courteous and pleasant and the hotel is kept very clean.

          The place needs new management and a really really improved sense of service, this results in a very poor price/performance ratio for this Resort at this moment. Furniture looks old not a really good sound isolation and food is very expensive and very bad.

        • Nice location, beautiful beach and lucky only stay in this hotel for one nite. Friendly and helpful staff, spacious room, the kitchenette was great especially you have a baby on board. Meal spread was very good, pool villa was well designed and comfortable.

          Other places, this results in a very poor priceperformance ratio for this Resort at this moment and the service at the golf course is worst. The food are expensive and not that delicious.

        • Beautiful site, nice beach and i recomment to just stay in ocean wing instead. The staff are very helpful and go the extra mile, the pool was very clean and is fresh water.

          Fairly quiet location and too far away from town. Hotel services were overpriced and the room was able to open after the third replacement card. The food was not satisfactory.

        • Great location by the beach, sea was clean and the spa was very very good at this hotel. The service was excellent, the room was spacious and the breakfast buffet was more than adequate and very tasty. Kids menu at the sunset grill was cheap and the kids loved, the pool villa was lovely and the grounds.

          Not much choices for other food and price is expensive compare to kk city town area, restaurants are high for Malaysian standards.

        • Design & location is good, the beach is awesome and great place to relax and soak up the view. Nexus's customer service is a disgrace for the beautiful Kota Kinabalu, room is big and food is excellent.

          Very far away from city centre without any shopping & and buses are most of the time full. Hotel prices are high, lobby wifi is too slow and s problem poor communication between staff wrong jnfo abt transport causing extra expense. The shower door cannot be closed, pool badly in need of cleaning.

        • The location is very nice and beach is one of the best on Borneo and there were no jellyfish around we were there. The hotel is overall great as has many facilities and all staff are kindly very comfortable. The accommodation is excellent, the poolside bar has snacks and the portion sizes are huge, of 5 restaurants at the resort we struggled to have one decent meal. The Indian night is especially good, quite and the pool is beautiful.

          The ocean view room had a poor view of the ocean and service was sometimes quite slow and the prices in the resorts'. The shower was too hot even after adjusted to lowest temp and breakfast was bad too.

          The hotel stay has stained our entire Kota Kinabalu holiday, the service in the restaurant is poor and I can find stain on the mug.

        • The room was spacious, clean and in beautiful surroundings, the beach was wide, in the end, another polite staff showed us to our table and we ate there feeling less special again. The bed was also very comfy, food was nice.

          Rather than eating at the overpriced outlets in the hotel, dusty waters and breakfast spread was not good at all.
