Lovely Planet rates this as the 'most luxurious hotel in Lahad Datu'. The bed is comfortable, but the bathroom has a bad sewage smell and the room overall was poorly service. Our sheet had holes in it, and the pillows were old and needed to be replaced. I booked online through bookings.com and had booked to have breakfast included, only to arrive and the restaurant downstairs was closed. The price is good, and the hotel is okay, but nothing to rave about.

Nice view facing the sea. This hotel is quite new, clean and spacious. Air-con in our room is quite cold, enjoy a good night sleep. Walking distance to shops and eateries. Serve nice and simple breakfast before we check out.

I have call the 0 operator to mention the problem, still after 2 hours the tv don't have any signal, there's no rain no cloudy weather but there's no signal. Feel like living in the cave. Probably the management didn't pay astro bill, but the answer our technician still check the problem. What a typical liar answer.
