Excellent 10.0
Pros: Great hotel great service...
Cons: Espresso in large mug... prefer small cup size for espresso;-) Italian restaurant was gone... remember it had a great wine list... unsure of alternative western kitchen dining options for couples as we only stayed for one night layover
Good 7.0
Pros: Lovely beds and towels , not that common on Borneo.
Cons: The service in the cafe (a la carte) was very poor, and the restaurant a bit gloomy, but ok food.
Excellent 9.0
Pros: The staff was very friendly and accommodating. Their focus is to ensure the guests had a great time there. I had the intention to go diving and was kindly informed by the dive operator of the poor visibility and he didn't recommend the dive outing. Loved the room amenities (super comfy bed and pillows), Nespresso coffee, various tea options and ample supply of water.
Cons: The coffee at the cafe can be improved. The Nespresso's pods at the room taste better than the coffee at the cafe. In addition, there is a strong echo along the hallways at the Tanjung wing. In our 3 nights there, we were woken up every night by other guests talking (or arguing) loudly at the hallway.
Excellent 10.0
Pros: Very good location, with lots of activities to keep the guests occupied. Enjoyed chilling at the Sunset Lounge watching the sunset.
Cons: There should be safety briefings conducted on the water activities (ie sea walk) as there were none received.
Good 7.0
Pros: We were upgraded because there were only single beds for us that they could join together and our daughter's extra bed had no charge - we were happy with that. The buffet breakfast had a very wide selection, eastern and western which is a huge plus point. The taste of the food was above average and in some cases very nice (allowances made for mass cooking) but the hot chocolate could be improved (I think it was the quality of milk). I loved the fresh pomelo fruit! The hotel activities were also very entertaining for my family especially the cooking classes, paddle boarding and for our daughter, games like the watermelon eating, coconut bowling competition and daily water balloon catapulting and water slides. She had a ball! We also enjoyed the band in the night very much at the lounge, we actually attended every night we were there, they sang most of our requests and we built a good rapport with them. The staff were very friendly and accommodating, we loved to chat to them about their native tribal culture and they were happy to share their family history. Those were the highlights of our stay at Shangrila Tanjung Aru hotel.
Cons: The scenery of the beautiful pool was destroyed by the ugly orange buoys. A suggestion would be to have a separate pool for those who cannot swim and are wearing life jackets and where those buoys would be necessary. I understand that the majority of your clients can't swim, but the stunning pool view was spoilt by the buoys and life jackets.
Excellent 10.0
Pros: The hotel was terrific all round. The room, the facilities, the food, the location, the ambiance, everything was perfect for us. The best thing of all was the superb staff who were so helpful, friendly and kind. They bent over backwards for us in all departments, a real credit to the management of the resort.
Cons: Nothing.

Okay 4.2
Pros: Location near the airport
Cons: This hotel need to refurbish. Sofa, carpet and curtain were so old and stained. Children pools were so dirty too.. Totally overpriced
Excellent 8.3
Pros: I have visited this resort a number of times. I always enjoy the fantastic swimming pool facilities, the gardens and the gym. Room is good although beginning to show its age a bit. Staff were busy as it was Chinese New Year but they were generally friendly and helpful. The buffet breakfast offered a large choice of foods (many Asian options) however I feel the quality of the food isn’t as good as when I first visited. Nice views from resort.
Cons: Bathroom floor could have been cleaner. Price of the resort is expensive and I don’t feel that it has the 5* exclusivity touch about it anymore. More of a package holiday setting for groups of tourists.
Excellent 10.0
Pros: Friendly staff, great place to stay
Excellent 10.0
Pros: Attentive staff members. Prompt
Excellent 8.8
Pros: Amazing resort with great pools and beautiful garden surrounds, breakfast was amazing and plenty of variety. Rooms are decently sized and clean.
Cons: Pool guards are overly strict, gym was a fair walk at the Sutera Harbour Sister Facilities.
Excellent 9.0
Pros: Really nice resort with an amazing pool. A lot of food choices that were not unreasonably priced. Our room was spacious and had a balcony which faced the harbour, this was very nice. The decor was a bit dated. The hotel is by the Sutera harbour which made island hoping very convenient. The Spa facilities was really good too. I will stay here again.
Cons: There were not enough sun lounger chairs by the pool. Although the hotel has a beach and access to the sea, you can't swim here (this was not a problem, just worth noting)
Excellent 9.0
Pros: Pictured seaview from the bedroom
Good 6.0
Pros: It has great swimming pools and ocean view.
Cons: It's really old and beds are also too small.

Excellent 8.8
Pros: Amazing pool and great breakfast buffet. Poolside bar staff are very friendly. Oppulent hotel perfect for golfers.
Cons: Didn't think the dinner buffet was good value and it didn't have the 'Fiesta' vibe. We booked a twin room and received an upgrade to a suite but there weren't two beds. Not a locatio n for those who prefer to walk to destinations. Located on a busy highway meaning you need to either shuttle or taxi to everything.
Mediocre 3.0

Pros: Everything. Especially the very delicious breakfast, gym, swimming pool, free drinks and free karaoke at lobby lounge if you order meals there. The room is huge. Shuttle service is perfect. If youre in budget and want to have an almost luxury place to stay, this is the place. I've been staying in many hotels, this hotel is below my expectations..
Cons: sometime the plug at room doesn't work and the room isn't really soundproof.
Excellent 9.0

Cons: same breakfast every day
Good 7.0

Pros: Comfortable, clean, reasonably priced hotel. Very nice and supportive staff. I traveled alone, room was clean, sleeping comfortable (apart from some external noise but this is standard). They have free shuttle to/from airport (with a fee by night). They can arrange for inexpensive taxis. Position is closed to the airport - not in the center (with pros and cons). There is a small pool on the roof, but I did not use it.
Cons: Breakfast is standard, but if you ask you can have a nicer expresso and more fruit. Internet works reasonably well, but the accounting system (repeated logins) is a bit clumsy (update?).
Excellent 9.0
Pros: 2nd time here. Friendly staff, lovely room! We missed breakfast, so no comment on the food. Pretty enjoyable stay!
Cons: Insufficient car parks, but they still managed to squeeze us in! Kudos!
