“Surpass my expectation, thumbs up!!”
Reviewed 17 April 2014

Booked this 3 bedroom unit from tour agent and it comes with breakfast. Was rather surprise that b/f is included but we had very low expectations. However, I must say for a local, this property is pretty well maintained and we have no complaints at all. The unit is large and is suitable for 6 pax but was able to take 8 pax easily with 2 extra beds. In fact, I believe the hall may be able to put in another bed and with the long sofa, can load10 pax but a bit pushing it. 8 was just nice as we put in the extra beds into the 2 larger rooms. One room, the master bedroom, has a king sized bed and has ensuite bath/toilet. The other 2 rooms have twin beds. Fully airconditioned, including the lounge which was a relief in the heat and the aircons were super strong. Great! There was another bathroom/toilet to be shared by the other rooms. Kitchen is large and has a stove with 2 hobs. Limited cooking utensils available like a wok, a pot, kettle and rice cooker. Limited cuttlery but sufficient plates, cups and saucers for 6 pax. Tea, coffee, creamer and sugar also available. Linen all provided with bath towels. Lounge is huge with a TV, sofa and coffee table. The dining table was also large with 6 chairs.

Good points
1) clean
2) good quality beds and duvets (very comfortable)
3) fantastic for families as you won't be couped up in a room
4) location is excellent, near the promenade and close to Warisan Square. There is a huge mall being constructed which is a pity as it will tower over Marina Court. Centrepoint Sabah is also nearby. Ocean Seafood Restaurant is also a stone throw away. The Philipino market and wet markets are 5-10 mins walk away. Great spot to move around.

Not so good
1) I think the breakfast was only cooked to cater for a few groups, us inclusive. Limited choice but edible. 1 rice, 1 noodle, porridge, 2-3 dishes, 1 fruit, bread & spreads (low quality), cornflakes and coffee & tea and 1 juice.
2) Not entirely handicapped friendly as I noticed in most establishments in KK. Plenty of steps.
3) Prefer if shampoo & soap are given and not the 3 in 1 type of gel.
4) No wifi available except reception. This should be improved quickly?
5) The lifts and public area could be cleaner. A bit dark and dirty.

Other than this, we were happy with the apartment. Will definitely stay there again.

Room Tip: Get rooms nearer to the main entrance as we had to walk a big loop to get to shopping places.

Booked from third party and most things that i request never prepared. And have to repeat again the whole Things to another middle man. You hv called the owner and the owner will called the runner for you. Have extra charge for extra blanket.You must hv swmming attire if wnt to enjoy the swimming pool. The management should consider it for muslim female guest. The security who asked us to get out from the pool aLSO VERY RUDE!!!!. I feel ashamed infront of my family. How do you feel if you were me. I am the 1 bring them for vacation and paid everything and this is what i get from the hotel staff??!!!! Your security can asked nicely and advised nicely. We are malaysian and you should know to speak in proper language.

Three of us stayed here in Febuary in a three bedroom apartment .Good things where that they where very spacious and in a very good location .
There is very limited ocean views now as a large shopping centre is being built accross the road and is blocking views .
Bad things where that they are very badly run down and not clean at all .
Not all apartments are this bad , i guess we where just unlucky .

Room Tip: Check with owners some how before booking

A group of five of us stayed here for one night after our climb. We were all so knackered that anywhere would have been fine :-) The apartment was the second that we had stayed in at the Marina Bay Court and was by far the nicest. It was large and spacious for 5 of us and the pool was about a 30 second walk away. Its only a shame the jaccuzzii was not hot :-( Location to town was is also very convenient.
The apartment was lovely and quiet (again an improvement on the previous place) and overall quite clean.
HOWEVER
there were some questionable stains on our bed sheets which really let the place down. A little more attention to detail would have got this a 4/5.

We stayed here for just over a week and switched between rooms twice for availability. We had planned to only stay here while diving but the comfort of the apartments and the ease of having a full kitchen to use meant we could save more money by not eating out twice a day.
The gym is ok if you want to just use free weights but almost all the machines are in various stages of disrepair. There is a Treadwall though which is great fun to use.
I would definitely stay there again.

These Condos are privately owned and we rented from Marcia Santani, who did a terrific job at taking care of us! The condo was wonderful, very spacious with 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. One of the bathrooms was off the master bedroom, perfect reward for the one who organized the trip. It also had a Kitchen and dinning room so we bought groceries and cooked in some. A wash machine and clothes line was an extra bonus! I have traveled quite a lot but never found this nice of a place for the price. Marica was in regular contact with us from start to finish. We were coming from the states and knew nothing about Malaysia and Marica told us tours she recommended and even booked them for us and had all the details ready upon our arrival. The tours were great! For a reasonable fee she picked us up at the airport and delivered us at our door. We were right in the middle of downtown and within walking distance to everything we wanted to do. I was worried about possible noise being downtown but not a problem. It's a pretty chill place, great weather and good food. I can't say enough about the whole experience!! Wonderful!!! Thanks again to Marcia, If I ever come back to Malaysia I WILL rent from you:)
