Stayed here for one night before catching a flight home. perfectly adequate and value for money. Very comfy bed and spacious room. A soulless hotel, but then, that's to be expected from a chain... Worth noting that the AC didn't work in our room, an engineer was sent and claimed that he had fixed it - but hadn't. Food and...

We stayed here overnight prior to a 3 day river safari. We obviously wouldn't have travelled to sandakan to visit this resort (indeed we wouldn't have travelled to sandakan period) but if you are here as a stop over prior to a safari then quite simply it is the best hotel you can possibly find. The rooms are clean, comfortable...

The location is beautiful - on the beach with lovely views of the city and the sea. Rooms are OK but not great as per expectations from a Sheraton. Towels look old ... Breakfast was OK too though not many choices... Fitness is really a room so not much to do there so I prefer the infinity pool which is...

Stayed for one night and found the hotel to be the best in the local area. The location is right by the shoreline and attached to the local shopping mall. There plenty of food outlets close to the hotel and taxis are easy to reach. We stayed planning to go to the Orangutan Sanctuary. Taxi to there takes about 30...

Highly recommend this hotel. The location is very central, the amenities are excellent and the staff are very pleasant and accommodating. Some of the attractions are within walking distance and it is easy and convenient to get a taxi to see other sights that are further away. The pool and gym are also very good, with an excellent view of...

Sheratorn Sandakan is almost in the middle of a local market. Those who are looking for a quiet stay may find the location intimidating. Room was big. Worth paying more for a sea-view room. Hotel lobby on the ground floor is minimalistic. Main reception is on the first floor. Good food, even good choice for pure vegetarians. Overall, worth a...
