    Good”

    At the check in counter was hassle free as the staff is friendly and efficient. However when I arrive at my room, I was so disappointed as my sea view is obstructed, it seems more like a swimming pool view rather than what it claims to be. The sofa and toilet seems so worn out that it screams for a change! For the price I paid, it is not worth it.

    Stayed for 7 nights with 6yr old son and pregnant wife. Great location where close by everything we need to go, using cheap Grab taking us less than 10 mins. Staff try to accommodate our needs as much as possible, number of swimming pools that we can choose from day to night. Fantastic breaky offers Western to Asian dishes. Love to come back with parents. Thanks Agoda for booking.

    The hotel was convenient and accessible. But the agoda who did the bookkeeping made me hard.”

    The day before I traveled, I received a cancellation email from 'agoda' so I was so surprised. I made a mistake in agoda. They immediately confirmed and rescheduled the accommodation by rebooking.Other than that, hotel facilities and golf course are satisfactory.

    The food was superb! The place is amazing with views! Was not quite happy with the checking in process though when they asked for a separate voucher from an “agent” when i already produced the booking confirmation from agoda which never happened before at other hotels but the reception was really helpful so thank you! Apart from that, its a very beautiful hotel with peaceful ambience.

    Very good and Soo beautiful.”

    I booked the club room sea view and was upgraded to a suite. I was very happy. The check-in process was quick. The staff were friendly and professional. The staff was good at English and Korean. Service was very good. The room was spacious, pleasant and beautiful. The sea, the scenery, the promenade and the sunset were beautiful. The pool and Italian restaurant, breakfast and club lounge were the best of all. Especially conversation with staff of bar in pool was fun. It is the best accommodation in Kota Kinabalu. I highly recommend Magellan Sutra! It was the best trip.

    Not Value for Money”

    Pros Great location. Nice sunset view Cons Staffs not English spoken and doesn’t understand much English. Staffs are rude especially those at the pool area. Air conditioning not cold but after maintenance guy came they said it’s normal. No wonder they provide ceiling fan in the room. Wifi speed sucks. You better use your own mobile network. Prefer Pacific Sutera which is more value for money with better facilities.

    it was a great experience to stay in Magellan resort. We stayed at Magellan Club Suite room and the room was spacious. Employees were kind and we were pretty much satisfied. However, one thing that was inconvenient for us was the wifi connection. We had many times that wifi got disconnected while using it. Other than that, it was all good!

    From the moment we checked into the club house, the receptionist's facial expression was angry. I felt bad about receiving a service. After that, the receptionist was unfriendly to everyone when 'HappyHour"time. We called her several times when we were sitting on the table, but she pretended not even see it. (~more times) It was the worst.

    The resort is specially for Family group, not for person. It is good to relax and enjoy swimming. BUT, payment system is not so good.. We couldn't tell and pay with our room number, we should pay cash for each place. Moreover, food is low-level. It is better to go eat outside.

I was very disappointed as water supply is a common stuff and shouldn't happened at 5 star hotel. I hope it doesn't happen again for those who leaving early to the airport.
