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.

Alone in Sabah”
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

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

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.

Great place to view the sunset”
Location of the hotel is indeed superb, just minutes away from KK airport, and next to the beach where the views are just great. We stated in the executive suite, and were impressed with the size and overall comfort. The food was reasonable, but the 5 Sails restaurant get very busy in the morning. It is a very popular hotel for tourists. It can get very noisy in the night as people were coming late and their doors are slamming all the time (I think the doors needed a better design perhaps?). The hotel staff however, are much to be desired.... very impersonal, takes ages to check you in and out (took me 30 mins to check out when no one was there). I went to settle the bill the night before as I wanted to avoid the long waiting time as what we've experienced during check-in. But the same thing still happened, very, very long - and friendly is the last word I would use. The sunset views did made up for those bad experience though.

Poor room condition and house keeping ”
We stayed for five nights and it's amazing to find so many problems in the room. nearly all the power sockets available for use were failed. The bath tub knob also failed to drain out water. The TV remote did not have battery. Later we found the room cleaning was also poor. we found cockroach in one day and no toilet tissue is replaced. except the food view, it did not deserve a five star hotel

-The worse checked in experience ever. The check in staff at the main building gave us wrong direction on how to go to Magellan Club. It Took 30 minutes to find the place because we wrongly went to Marina Club. We asked the other staff with baju melayu, they said, "di bawah..di bawah..jalan saja nanti sampai". :( We waste our time just to find the Magellan Club check in place. - Apart from the bad experience during checked in, we very happy with the room, the place and pool area especially for kids. The food at Five Sails during dinner & breakfast buffet also good.

This was my 4th stay at Sutera Harbour and my 2nd stay at Magellan. Honestly, I prefer Magellan better than the Pacific but both are great. I love the room. It’s nicely decorated. Love the swimming pool too. The beach is beautiful. The water is crystal clear and you can see fishes swimming about. I love how fast the room was available for us and how their staff able to locate us in a very strategic room-very near to the swimming pool and just walking distance to the Marina club. We played bowling (after 8 pm its cheaper) at the Marina club. The pastries at Muffinz cafe are delicious. The breakfast buffet this time around serves better menu and food. Planning another stay in early March for my girl’s birthday. Looking forward to it

Fantastic trip !! ”
The resort was a little bit old but huge and spacious. Room is comfortable and breakfast was good. And swimming pool is super wonderful ! They have 5 swimming pools. My kids love swimming pool. We tried bowling too. It was good. And we love to go to Imago mall. And the massage shop was good too next to Imago mall. But tour was disappointed. Snorkeling to Manukan island was a bad choice. Water was dirty and no fishes to see and firefly tour was also disappointed. Local Malay dinner was dirty and no taste at all. Tour is not recommended. If we go there next time, we will stay at resort and go for swimming and go to Imago mall only.
