It was good to stay with family and was comfortable to stay. But the extra key didn't worked every day so had to go to the front every day. It is worthy to have BBQ dinner.

Can't get much better than this place”
My wife, sister-in-law, her husband, their niece, and I all went here for a 5 day restful vacation. We got adjoining rooms in the resort, and it was well worth the money. The pools were always clean and cool, the rooms were great, and the service was awesome. At the Sutera, you are at most a 10 minute ride from just about anyplace you'd want to go, with the Imago mall literally right next to the golf course and the old townish kinda area just a 6-7 minute ride away. Download Grab (an Uber-like taxi application) before you go and you are pretty much set for a restful, relaxing stay.

Way better than Shangrila”
I have stayed both in Magellan Sutera and Shangri-la Tanjung Aru, and Sutera was a way better choice. While i have experienced the worst service at Shangri-la(waited for a check-in for 2 hours, never been apologized, had to wait for half an hour to get a bottle of beer, waited for About 20 minutes to pay with credit card), Sutera had spacious rooms, all the staff were nice and kind, and had excellent facilities. I will definately would like to visit Sutera again. For those considering between Sutera and Shangri-la, I would say Shangri-la is not worth a consideration, just choose Sutera and visit Tanjung Aru beach at sunset hours.

Great Facility with three hotels together”
Great place. Lots to walk around and lots to do. Remember to ask about what is happening at the front desk. We forgot to do that and have to slowly discover as we walk around the place. The hotel is clean. And not much bugs given it is a tropical area. Interior of the room is a bit dated. But given that it is such a big room and big facility, good enough to compensate. I would come back again. And next time might try the golf course

Good place for families ”
We loved the variety of pools but were disappointed by the size of the beach area. The swimming portion of the beach was also closed almost everyday due to jellyfish. The room was comfortable and the bathroom was fabulous! There are a variety of restaurants but the food was not fantastic as we were hoping for more Malaysian dishes.

My weekend at Magellan Sutera was a delight to my being alone. Peace and quiet by the beach. Lots of girls in bikini. It is good to get a room on the higher floor. Nice view and cool breeze. The room needs some renovation.

Great hotel with plenty of pools and sun loungers. Excellent location and staff couldn’t be more helpful. Lots of choice for breakfast although the evening meals not so great and quite expensive for what’s on offer. Ruby spa brilliant Only problem we had was the access for a push chair.... no ramps anywhere in the hotel! With the Carpark being at the very bottom of the staircase to heaven the only choice is to walk up the car access ramp. Only found 2 lifts side by side in the whole main complex other than that was brilliant

Definitely not value for money ”
Service was poor as check in time was long n room given not according to booked, ended up wasting lots of time to request for change of room. The so-called sea view is more opt to be called small partial sea view. Room was not very clean as many parts of room were dusty. Breakfast was also not up to 5-star hotel standard.

Location is really nice on the beach with a beautiful view, staff of very nice and helpful the only thing is the food is a little expensive. Similar to UK prices. However a grab cab to the centre is only £2 or 9rmb and you can eat for a fifth of the price and nice to see local places :). Would recommend to anyone looking for a lovely hotel with nice facilities and grounds.

clubRoom service awful!!”
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.

Quite good but,”
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.

No water supply.”
Overall is good, except for the day before I left to airport. My flight to my home country is 6am, when I'm ready to brush and wash up, there's no water supply. 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.

I booked an executive suite. It was pricey but worth it as there is a king sized bed, 2 day beds that can fit average sized person, 2 toilets, nice living room, pantry and balcony. Best was use of the club lounge for breakfast and drinks throughout the day. I love the location and all facilities are well maintained. I will definitely come back again!

Would definately recommend this hotel and location as a great place to relax either as a couple or as a family with children of any age. The resort boasts three fantastic swimming pools , great restruarants and is a hop skip and jump from local islands and KK's fabululous sea food market. Resort was very clean and all the staff really put themselves out to help and make our stay very enjoyable. We be back for sure , highly reccomennded.

I stayed at this hotel twice nearly a decade ago with my family and young children. I'm very happy that the standards and venue is kept in tip top condition. It's nice to come back after all these years and see that the place does not seem to age or deteriorate at all, if not better. Very impressive. Hope to stay again for a longer period.

location, surroundings, room
Needed an airport hotel and ended staying here. It was a very nice stay- felt like staying at a Shangri-la at 1/3 the price. My room was even cheaper than the Hyatt or Le Meridien hotels in downtown KK. Food options a plenty as well. Loved my stay and I wouldnt mind at all staying here again for vacay or for work.
