I have to agree with the recent reviews. Yes, the place could do with sprucing up a bit, the food is OK but not great and the hotel is certainly not to the highest international standards (bathroom tiles need re-grouting, some floor tiles need replacing and a few new carpets would be nice - there is an on-going renovation program in place). That being said, however, it is not an expensive hotel and has a number of very good features. Our room was very large and cool, and overlooked the beach. The setting was quite magnificent - a beautiful safe, sandy beach, backed by shady trees with the rain forest as a backdrop. The staff were very friendly and helpful, and getting taxis, shuttles etc. was easy, and the overall facilities are good. The overall setting of the hotel, including the lobby area was extremely pleasant. Local attractions such as the circular rainforest walk in the Permai Rainforest resort (10 mins away), the Sarawak cultural village (5 mins away) and the Santabong river cruise (pick up from the hotel - 15 minute drive) were really excellent. If you are looking for 5 star luxury (with prices to match) then don't come here, but if you want a great beach, lovely staff and a setting backing onto the rainforest at a reasonable price, then the Damai Beach Resort is worth a visit.
