“just ok”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 April 2014

Stay here for 2 nights. It was just fine since there were not many good hotels to choose if you ever stay at kudat. The standard room (garden view) is quite big. But i did regret not choosing the ocean view which i think had better scenery than viewing the parking lot (where's the garden?). I was quite dissapointed to the restaurant's management when they failed to tell us that the restaurant was closed for some vip's occasion. They should tell us the moment we step into the restaurant rather than telling us after we had pick our table. Overall its just an average hotel for me.

Room Tip: Choose the ocean view or golf view, otherwise you have to buy mosquitoes repellent :)

1. Building design was OK. But ambience was quite dull, no house music was played in lobby and restaurant.
2. Reception was quick but forgot to inform us that it has adjoining door (ooppss??)
3. Room cleanliness was good and has very basic necessities (small kettle jug, 2 sets of premix coffee and tea, 2 sets of cups)
4. Bed was clean and sturdy. Pillows were soft and nice. Could use thicker comforter though.
5. Toilet was clean. Only shower cap, small bar soaps and 3-in-1 soap was provided. Soap dispenser in shower area not refilled(ooppss again??).
6. Voices from 'neighbours' could be heard, although they were talking at normal tone. Noises from kids playing at the pool could be heard too.
7. Breakfast was the major downfall. The first sighting: uncleaned tables. Second: only 5 inefficient staffs. Third: slow to replenish finished food, fruits, pastry and cutlery. Food preparation was below average. A big disappointment to a 3-star resort.
8. Has a small gym with basic body fitness equipments.
9. Suprisingly, a sauna was available but RM25 per entry. Wow.
10. Average size of a 3-feet deep pool. A main attraction for parents with small kids.
11. No sight of manager on duty anywhere. No wonder service and food quality was below average.

This hotel could be better with improved management and service quality improvement. After all, it has all the basic resort facilities. It's a shame to see a good resort in Kudat to wither due to the poor service quality.

We came here as we wanted to see the tip of Borneo. The hotel is old looking . $56aus for a night is a little steep in my eyes. The pool is ok . The gym is a joke and shouldn't even be counted. The breakfast was average which was included. The toaster has 6 slots with only 1 working . We stayed on the first floor and thought we had a mouse, the droppings in the morning proved it . Apart from that the room was clean. The tv old with only 1 Chanel working , I would say go out and do something but there is nothing in kudat. The staff of the hotel have been nothing but polite and helpful I would say with out them this place would be a compete dive.

Been here for few times, recent Hari Raya is the worst and lastest, been booking 1 week earlier and purchased voucher for the room

Sadly upon arrival at 2.30pm our room havent been ready, and we waited 2 hours for our room, moreover upon arrival we immediate being informed that we need to top up RM40 per room (we booked 3 room) and the rate is really pricy with such lousy services, no breakfast, poor water pressure, almost no hot water at all ( I even shower cold water early in the morning)

If there is any other resort in Kudat area, I would not stay in Marina

Thanks for the services

Stayed in Kudat Golf and Marina Resort as it's the only resort available in town equipped with facilities such as swimming pool, fitness centre, sauna etc. Generally the hotel was just okay as long as you don't expect much from a small town like Kudat.

Was lucky enough to get a deluxe room with ocean view at a promotion rate. Else, I'd say the room rates are rather expensive. Check-in process was okay but the receptionist was inexperienced - unsure what to do and had to refer to others.

Room was spacious but was shocked to find ants all over the table in the room! Managed to get assistance from the housekeeping maid to get rid of the ants. Dislike the bathroom, seemed dirty and refurbishment is required! Another thing is the window lock was broken - the window couldn't be locked properly!

Restaurant closed at 10.30pm and went down to get a drink around 10pm, good to see that restaurant staff were happy to serve us.

Swimming pool facility was okay, hotel guests didnt seem to follow rules to wear swimsuits as I saw people with tshirts playing in the pool! Fitness centre was a disaster, most of them are out of order. Wanted to try their sauna facility but too bad they did not separate the rooms for male and female guests! Ping Pong room was okay, the hotel really needs to upgrade their facilities and refurbish the resort though. One of the aircond was not working and I found a dead cockcroach at the corner of the ping pong room!

Location was okay as long as you have your own transport. Overall the stay was just okay as I paid for a promotion rate for an ocean view room which definitely worth the stay!

We stayed here for 2 nights and found it to be "adequate" - simple but clean. It had a lovely view of the ocean and a large pool. The food in the restaurant was very reasonable and a small buffet breakfast was included in the price. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The rooms could use a refurbishment as they were looking pretty worn.

Room Tip: Ask for a deluxe sea view room on the 3rd floor
