went there with my family for 3d2n stay my during holiday season.the bad things are, toilet water pressure and heater are inconsistent cold and hot,pressure high and low at their means.on the first day arrival housekeeping services are bad,took them 1 hour to get additional towel.good things, breakfast plenty of choice from American to Asian food but must improve their services,when i arrive around 9.45am the crew are busy clearing up the table and the coffee didnt replenish.location: too far away from the city 45mins drive,this resort nice to stay for anyone who only like to relax and playing golf..housekeeping improved on the second day,they called my room to check the delivery every 10 minutes and follow up till my request delivered.pool was nice.the staff were very friendly,prices for the food and drinks are expensive.overall i am happy with this resort and will only recommend to anyone who only stay in for relaxation but for anyone who like to tour KK upon their visit DONT

Room Tip: go for ocean view

Stayed in the Ocean wing which was adequate albeit a little tired. The room was spacious and the balcony had great views over the South China Sea. We went on B&B basis which was great but found that some mornings there were long wait times for service. I had my birthday in resort and we chose Noble house which was great, very good food and a birthday cake was also presented. The drinks were quite expensive so we took advantage of happy hour in the Darlin' bar which eased the cost. The shuttle into KK was handy but we found the times quite restrictive. Some of the buffet offerings were good value in the evenings.

Staff were all friendly, some more than others but overall they seemed to be happy in their jobs and this was reflected in the service. The pool was nice, pool bar was well stocked and the lunch menu on offer was pretty basic (Satay, spring rolls, chips etc) but nice. The sea is warm which is nice but coming from the cold Atlantic coasts was a bit of a shock..! The beach is great for an early morning/sunset stroll and the sunsets were spectacular each night. It was quite busy with corporate/college type functions but this did not bother us too much, although at times it felt a bit like being on Takeshi's Castle game show...

The worst five star hotel among the other five star hotels in Sabah. Very slow service, poor time management, room is very dusty, filled with spider webs, the restaurant is so hot, took quite some time for food refill. The worst experience ever!!! Rasa Ria resort is much better than this one.

Very good resort. I stayed in the Suite/Villa area which is eperated by a golf course from the main resort. I was there in November which is a bit off-season.

Positives:
- My Spa suite was excellent standard and very spacious with very nice ocean view from the balcony.
- Not crowded anywhere. Breakfast, pool area, beach, shuttle bus, bar and restaurants all had plenty of space for everyone.
- Extremly friendly staff in all areas. Special thanks to the staff in the Lanai bar/restaurant area.
- 8 nice restaturants on the resort, my favourite was Olives.
- Free wired internet in the room and free wifi in most lobby and restaurant areas.

Negatives:
- very remotely located, so you are more or less stuck at the resort for dinner.
- beach is very nice and almost empty, I guess that is due to the huge warning signs about jelly fish. I did not see any while I was there but you don´t feel very relaxed in the water with those warnings signs...
- No Wifi in the room.

I booked my trip at http://www.booking.com/hotel/my/nexus-resort-karambunai.en-gb.html?aid=343909;sid=eea22a036e45c2332924009b913351ee;dcid=1&selected_currency=hotel_currency

Stayed here in August 2011 with 6 friends
The 3 room pool villa was recommended by a friend
The villa was by the beach, about 2 mins walk
Beach was beautiful and so was the surroundings
Service was good
The highlight was having a BBQ at ur own villa with a personal chef
Couldnt ask for more
Definitely will visit this resort again..
Overall excellent hotel
