    I Love everything in this place, in this hotel. Everyone try to please you, the surronding, the nature, is perfect, the rooms are great, I wish I could stay there for more days...

    Breakfast should be better

    The resort itself was great. We went for our honeymoon so wanted something quiet and private. We stayed in an ocean view room so had direct access to the sea from our private sun deck outside our room. We soent most of our time there as we didn;t have to worry about finding a space by the pool and have the comfort of your room right next to you.

    We found the price and choice of food and service was not up to the standard of a 5* resort. I thought the food was generally overpriced and wine especially expensive.

    The best location in Borneo and a nice food.

    The main problem there is no a beach and the stuff must clening a sea under a villas.

    Wonderful location, excellent service from happy, friendly staff. Lovely pool that is good for swimming - not just a "leisure" pool. freshly cooked breakfast on the veranda delivered by boat!

    The arm chairs in the room are really uncomfortable.

    Beautiful nature and view. The cottages are clean and nice. Loved that many fishes and birds can be seen, quiet and only sounds of cicada is around. Great for relaxing.

    Food was over-priced, not many choices for long stay. As the access to mainland is difficult, would be nicer if there are more choices and local dishes available.

    The staff were excellent! MERC was a nice experience. We had a superb seafood meal - snorkelling was great - as was the Booked.neting. Being able to swim and snorkel from our room was a real experience - the kids would swim over to say hi! The drinks in the evening at the Latitude Bar was a really lovely touch. We had some really quality family time there - intimate, personal atmosphere. We would definitely return - and split our time between Bungaraya and Gayana.

    Our initial impression was a little disappointing - location superb, however we had not been given adjoining rooms as requested (travellling with a 12 and 16 yr old) and the 'breakfast delivered to your room by boat' was not available. Having said that, the management were very quick to respond- change rooms for us asap and provided the breakfast we wanted. The intimate, personal atmosphere was superb - we wanted to stay longer! Only other comment would be that the first morning, breakfast was really lovely - small buffet and a la carte. The next 2 mornings were not as nice - obviously problems with the chefs or something - menu not offered although we were able to order.

    The hotel is situated in a beautiful island in front of Kota Kinabalu. Pros are:location, hotel staff, snorkeling in front of the hotel is very nice, possibility to go also to the other hotel, by a free boat ride, that offers a magnificient beach in the morning-afternoon for free, Marine center where you can go and touch some sea-stuff. Restaurants.:I read some comments about the restaurants being a bit expensive, Think to choose your own fish from reproduction thanks by having the menu in your hand and that is not expensive . Personnel was very efficient: because of a sudden noise to air conditioning in the room we were offered immediately to change room.

    You wonder if sometime in an Eco marine resor, waters could be a little be cleaner, but when we and currents arrives this happens. Room prices are a little bit on the high side,

    The location was really fantastic.The staff were very very polite, kind and friendly .

    Everything was excellent. The only thing we couldn't see there, the diversity of foods in the hotel restaurant.
