Shangri-La Rasa Ria, Kota Kinabalu
Tuaran,Kota Kinabalu - View on map
"The hotel/resort is a very very beautiful place... very quiet and tranquil.. The only drawback was that the resort is quit far from the main city.. Food is good especially the one where we dine at "TEPI LAUT".. The room is spacious and I really appreciate the mini pool by the balcony.. Staffs are helpful and very attentive.. If it weren't for the distance between the main city and the hotel, this resort would be really really nice... But, I like the gestures made by the hotel to abate the distances issue, they provide shuttle bus going to and forth from the hotel to the main city..."

Hotel No.5
Central Business District,Kota Kinabalu - View on map
"Pros: Staffs Attitudes, Cleanliness, Comfort-ability. Cons: Breakfast Variety is too little, Location. The reason why we choose to stayed in this hotel was because of flight transit in Kota Kinabalu International Airport as this hotel is not so far from the airport (around 10mins driving in normal traffic condition). The hotel is new, room is clean enough and everything work fined in bath room. And there is nothing around the hotel. Overall, quite a pleasant stayed in this hotel. "

Tang Dynasty Bay Hotel Sepanggar
Sepanggar,Kota Kinabalu - View on map
"First of all, this hotel requires you to print out the payment slip after you booked it from Agoda. And this is the first time I encounter this since for all the hotel I booked, never did they asked me about that. The staff told us that different hotel will have diff policy. After some discussion, finally they accept and let us checked in only with the booking number (since i didnt print the slip). Above all, the location a bit far from town but the price are value for your stay. You can use uber or grabcar to reach here. "
