Stayed here for 2 nights in a Pacifi Deluxe Golf View Room before doing Mt Kinabalu. This meant we had a view over the main entrance across to the golf course. I am not overly fussed by the view because you're not spending ages staring out the window from your room. The room is spacious, clean and somewhat modern.
It's a nice resort with private beach, decent restaurants and above average buffet breakfast. It is in it's own private enclave so traffic noise isn't an issue for any room (i think) and even though it's close to the airport, you don't hear the planes.
It's about a 30min walk into town or 50 mins to the better end of town so if you aren't a fan of walking in the heat, get the shuttle bus or grab a taxi.
Prices for drinks and food are a bit on the high side but I guess that comes with staying in a nicer resort.
Overall, it's one of the better options that are in or close to the city.More
