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 )

on outskirts of city; cab is required to go anywhere, altho at 15rm they are relatively cheap. happy hours are in effects, however they do not provide the reqular alcohol but rather a cheaper variety; for a hotel that charges 650rm daily as a minimum, this is being cheap. also, the gym is not part of the hotel but rather a good 300 meters from the hotel, as there are two hotels on the property that share the facility. breakfast is fine, as long as you get there by 8am; any later than 9am and there is little left and breakfast runs until 1030.

The Most Memorable Stay
We had a marvelous stay in Kota Kinabalu, Sabah, Malaysia at The Magellan Sutera Resort. Wonderful room facing the sea with the breathtaking views of sunrises and sunsets, very good service and some excellent dining too, must recommend the hotel's Al Fresco for the spaghetti and pizza and some exquisite dinner dishes. Very reasonably priced too for a luxury hotel. My only qualm was that the housekeeping did not provide us with enough toiletries i.e shower gels and caps. We've stayed at The Pacific Sutera, Nexus Karambunai, Le Meridien but this is the best hotel so far. We had a great time at The Magellan and we'll definitely come there again.

Nice rooms but don't expect much for food/service.
While the room was nice and comfortable, I was not happy with the quality of the food nor the service for a hotel of this class. I went for dinner once and wanted to sit outside. The waitress was obviously reluctant to clear the table outside and tried to push me to sit inside, citing mosquitos. If the hotel is aware of the problem, why not provide a solution, such as candles or coils instead? I also found an extra glass of wine on my bill. No doubt rectified, but considering no one even asked if I wanted a refill, how does an extra glass appear on the bill? Breakfast the next day was not of a quality I expect from a top-rated hotel like the Magellan Sutera either.
