We visited just before christmas a few months ago with another family. The resort is quite far away from Kota Kinabalu proper. Your best bet is to rent a car on arrival and drive to Nexus - about 1 hr away. Inside the resort itself, there is the main central property and ancillary villas. The ancillaries are a few km away and you will find the car useful to travel within the facility itself - they do have shuttles but you will end up being dependent on their timings.
The resort itself is well maintained with spacious rooms. They have two to three restaurants onsite. Vegetarian options are limited but we managed during our stay. There were quite a few activities advertised but we ended up spending most of the time in the pool or on the beach. There is small shopmart in the main building to buy items such as milk, soda, chips etc. One thing to note is that there was no WiFi in the rooms - only in the main lobby. The rooms had ethernet ports which do not work well for iPads/iPhones. Hotel staff are very friendly but not necessarily the most competent. Service gets a bit behind when a sudden crowd shows up - e.g. a tourist bus coming in for lunch... Beach access is excellent. Overall it is a good place to go with family for a few days.
