      Extremely disappointed to find out on arrival the restaurant closed in June 2018. ”
      I was also told on arrival (approximately 7pm) that the area was dangerous as a solo female (in fact anyone) to walk and buy dinner.

      I found the place satisfactory, spacious, worth the money. The staff responded swiftly to any inquiries or request. Dedicated and helpful. The flaw was it was quiet scary to get there, because the place is a bit dark and there was no eateries at a safe walking distance at night. but if you are travelling prepared with a happy tummy, there should be any problem.

      This hotel should be called STAFF HOTEL because the staff were really friendly..”
      TV was broken. We have to move to the next room. The deposit /safety box in the new room is broken. So it is quite dissapointing. Other than that, our stay was good, not noisy,staff was helpful eventhough they were lack of staff during festive season. The restaurant was closed 3 months ( that is why no breakfast).

      Situated at Sandakan Bay, Sanbay hotel is a very affordable hotel with convenience to the markets around the area. At the same time, allowing you to enjoy peace plus visiting the famus temples around the area.

      Simple Hotel”
      This Hotel was just a one night - despite being isolated - a lot of shops were closed around it. Was able to get a grabcar to town which was just few minutes away and back. The Sanbay is not a high end hotel BUT comfortable enough to stay. We were sad to know that the restaurant has closed down - kind of strange a hotel not having a restaurant. We watched the Final World Cup 2018 - it was unfortunate that reception was bad and hard to see. Or else the staff were very welcoming and extremely friendly! Will recommend to friends and travelers that wish to stay and save a lot of money!
