Good 6.0
- Very old, rooms are dirty and need a huge cleaning from ceiling to the floor. Nothing the cleaners can do, its the whole place which need to be renew. - Nothing to cook in the kitchen ( we had a 2 bedrooms appt), kitchen is useless. 2 plates 2 forks 2 spoons -Wifi is ok but to work its too slow - Beds are ok and clean - Bathroom are ok and average clean - Breakfast is good but crowned so not eays to get food, you almost need to fight :D, was gppd to have vip room due to room grade so it was more calm and peacfull that the main room. Waiters were super nice - Spa is to avoid, rude, the girl pick up her phone i the middle of the massage, I chose aronatherapie and it was painfull like I never seen, very not relaxing at all. I told 6 times to be more gentle. Plus I had to insist to get a massage, I walk in, they said we fully booked but it was no one there, the gilr was watching tv - Mall in front but impossibe to croos the big street with kids and stroller -Kids room wiht no toys, one slide and 1 table, full of mosquito. One day the staff came as we were playing and took all toys away without explanation, very rude -Pool is dirty and old -Have not tried restaurant but food in the room was ok -Gym is ok - Positive points : having 2 bedrooms and a living rooms for the kids and the welcome fruits, chocolate and baby crib (which was very old too but at leats we had one)

Great Stay with family
I came with 4 families in total. We booked 4 rooms. The day we arrived, we checked in late. We requested for connecting rooms & all rooms be on the same floor but it was not available due to high occupancy. At the same time, there were groups check in from China. They were very loud & noisy, more like in a market rather than in a hotel lobby. We waited an hour for us to get our room keys. Mr Boya was very nice to upgrade us to junior suites just to get all rooms on the same floor. It was worth the wait.

Quite Disaapointed
The Kids club is so so only but the pool is nice and clean. Breakfast - got a lot of variety but not tasty, coffee is quite dilute. No enough staff to clear table and do table setting. Going through a lot of hassle to get a cultery set Parking is a total joke, shouldn't be collecting ticket at the first place as need to go the parking counter to collect packing ticket when coming in and submit it back to the counter again when going out. Toilet is too small, Imago Shopping center is near but can't walk over as got flyovers and highway in the middle

Unhappy check in request, but fixed
I have an unhappy check in experience, where when I called in the morning asked if early check in is available, I was being turned away perfunctorily, which I think either the staff is new, or she did it deliberately. However, after leaving feedback at the website, management replied to me and gave me a better room when I checked in at night. The management appreciated feedback and care for the customer. For this, I think this hotel will keep on improving.

Exceptional 10.0
Great breakfast buffet
2nd time staying at the hotel. A lot of Korean tourists. Great breakfast buffet - salute to the restaurant staff for managing huge crowds every morning. Love the bedroom aircon. Perhaps the hotel could petition the KK city/ Sabah government to build a bridge between the hotel and Imago shopping area. So many tourists crossed the 8 lane roads dangerously every day and it is perhaps good for your hotel customers safety. Since the only entry to the hotel is one road, perhaps petition the KK city council to keep the area clean of tall grasses. Just a thought.
