            The hotel is kind of near the beach, yes, but there’s nothing more to do after going to the beach. The hotel’s restaurant is unreliable because the chef would go home in the middle of the day and you’ll have to take a Grab ride elsewhere to eat as there are no other establishments near this hotel. The staff did not help us order food as well, nor offer us any assistance when she told us the cook has gone home and that the restaurant will be closed til around 4. Stayed here 2 nights but felt like a 1-night stay would have been better. The bed and pillows all looked and felt old, really lumpy. The bathroom was moldy. The only nice thing abt this hotel is the balcony in the room.

            During our stay here, the hotel underwent renovation. Therefore, everywhere was quite dusty. Our room was newly renovated but the bed and linens need to be changed. They looked very old. Hopefully there will be more improvements when we come back here next time.

            This hotel provides wonderful service. There’s free airport pick-up, and when we switch to a hotel downtown later they even drove us there free of charge. And it also comes with free breakfast. Every room has a nice balcony. The hotel is a only a few minutes’ walk to the beach. And for all that it only cost us 130 RMB for a room with twin beds. We are very happy with everything!

            The price was cheap. Good for a budget travel. I think it's an old building, maybe with the way it looks from the room interior. It was clean. Soap and shampoo was provided. WiFi was fast. breakfast provided, although there is no choice, the two days of my stay I there is only toast and egg with sausages and baked beans. I had none to complain whatsoever.

            PEACEFUL ENVIRONMENT”

            I must say, although I was not satisfied during my first night staying here, the staff allowed me to change the room the next day. We supposed to be able to change it on the first night, but unfortunately their telephone wasn't in a working condition and we were super beat to even go downstairs and go through the hassle to complain. Day 2 and 3 went smooth. For the price I paid, compare to any other hotels there in Kota Kinabalu, this was somehow the kind of hotel a person like me and my mate were happy to pay and stay for a few days during our visit in Sabah. In general, it's an old hotel with old furnitures and finishes BUT given the price offered in Agoda.com and SUPER close to the beach, parking on site, quiet and peaceful (plus point for me because I hate staying close to the city due to the noise), this is a GOOD CATCH. I hope they have the opportunity to do a little upgrade to their property because I see potential! Pretty sure this was once a well-conditioned hotel.

            Beach Comfort Shuttle

            We loved this little place a gem in the middle of a backpacker area and the 5 star luxury resrt of Shangri-La down the road. It is about 20 minutes in a 30-40 ringgot taxi ride from the airport to the J___ Aru beach area, and it is amazing with small rooms with great AC or breezes, little frige, TV with a few channels, but the staff and breakfast are hearty and at good times, and the SHUTTLE is amazing when you need to go somewhere at any time. This is a great deal and they really try to help and please you for a great budget price. The beach area has a great street food and small local sunset bar area that is a 5 minute walk, then the street food and smoothies are amazing and so cheap! Then we played golf 5 minutes away - where our window terrace view overlooked the Kota Kinabalu Golf Course and then we walked 10 minutes past the KK Yacht Club to the Shangri-La Resort with pools, massages and great restaurants that are AMAZING luxury and prices and value. It is 150 ringgots to use all the facilities for the day there but we had lunch and stayed at the side pool, with a beach and a HUGE kids water park - but we paid great cheap prices at our Casaurina Hotel and loved it all. This was a super trip and a great little place to stay that gives you a mid-level luxury experience with all your needed amenities with a price that is 10% of the big VIP resorts. Well worth it and we will be back! - Kierstan and Tom Dwyer, Shanghai and USA
