Golfers paradise
We loved it! We were in a Magellan Club room and the little extras that were included we loved. At 5.30 each afternoon we seen on the terrace having complimentary drinks and appetizers. For the breakfast included we could mix with the general guests or had our own area for the clubbers. The sporting facilities that are available was second to none. The golf course was fantasic ( the main reason for staying )

I have stayed at the Magellan Sutera many times before and it has lost some of the small touches a resort of this caliber should maintain. Otherwise a lovely venue and recommend it to anyone.

Excellent, except it is rather expensive !
It was a wonderful stay, especially watching the beautiful sunset every evening. Believe most, if not all rooms are facing the sea. This Hotel is well designed/maintained. We love the big Hotel Lobby, very airy/windy !

Nice place to go for a rest.
Nice place with beautiful sight, but weak wi-fi in some rooms.

Fantastic, I would like to stay there again.
I had a wonderful memory of the room we stayed for three days in the resort which has the sea view. Whenever I woke up, I went to the balcony to see the sky and sea which were so blue to make me happy. The view was excellent both in day and night. I cannot forget the sunset I saw there. Also the bathroom was excellent; especially its bath and shower head were very comfortable. The resort has various large pools. The food was good, though some glasses smelled dirty dish clothes. I fully enjoyed my stays there.
