Excellent 10.0
Pros: The room was pleasant. The staffs did room clean several times a day to keep towels enough and room clean, which was very helpful. Every staff we met was very kind and friendly. Especially, the staff at Horizon Club Lounge, Joanne was very sweet. She helped us to get the two rooms we reserved to be arranged near each other. Also, I loved the swimming pool and activities at Star Marina. Sunset is really beutiful.
Cons: Actually not much. Maybe the price? Everything is pretty expensive.
Excellent 10.0
Pros: Well maintained room & nice restaurant
Cons: Too many ugly Koreans
Good 7.0
Pros: The facilities - water, pool, beach area was great with lots of activities around. Water safety was prioritized. Kids room was great, so was the gym. Breakfast buffet was great, even at peak hours the staff managed everything well. Location near the airport, ample parking space. Bath tub was a plus. Clean room and facilities all around. A fun and happening resort with lots of activities. Lots of Koreans around, seems to be targeting the foreign tourists from mainly Korea, and some from China and Hong Kong. Recommended for stay with families with young or older kids, a honeymoon, or just to relax. Good view of the sea, and don't forget to watch the sunset at the nearby Tanjung Aru beach.
Cons: Very strict with the check-in guests. High deposits to be paid upfront. Room design seems dated, and considering the price i paid, the room size isn't as big or as luxurious, and also the attention to service was lesser compared to other hotels of the same price range.
Excellent 9.2
Pros: Great for kids. There were a lot of activities to keep them busy. An I cream bar next to a waterslide, what more do you want in life?
Cons: Jellyfish season made the beach unswimable.
Excellent 9.6
Pros: Great facility and staffs
Cons: Lack of signs to show direction, poor food if you eat at the grill bar near the swimming pool.
Okay 4.0
Pros: Good location for seeing beautiful sunset Traditional building interior Nice and clean swimming pool
Cons: The worst five-star hotel I have ever stayed in. You must read these information below. First, a bell man who worked daytime had no will to offer services for customers. When I arrived this hotel from airport, he just stared at me and did nothing for me. So, I had to open the car door and unload my luggage on my own. It is terrible attitude for the forefront hotel staff. Second, most hotel staffs were inhospitable. When I went to the reception to ask something, I have been waited more than 10 minutes. Some staffs caught their eyes on me, however, they disregard me. Third, housekeepers were careless when doing their jobs. After making up room service, I found a cosmetic that I and my partner didn't bring in my room. In addition, I saw a Korean family wasn't able to check in after 4 o'clock due to delayed housekeeping.

Pros: Amazing pool and great breakfast buffet. Poolside bar staff are very friendly. Oppulent hotel perfect for golfers.
Cons: Didn't think the dinner buffet was good value and it didn't have the 'Fiesta' vibe. We booked a twin room and received an upgrade to a suite but there weren't two beds.

Cons: Nothing..all awesome
Excellent 8.0
Pros: The location, facilities, rooftop view, friendly staffs. Safe environment too.
Cons: Stayed here numerous times already (i guess its our 9th time), but this was the first time that a staff rudely chased us out at the parking area since there were too crowded with cars. We understood that there was an event going on nearby, but I think they should do better than that. We intend to ask him properly prior our check in, however without any questions he asked us to keep clear from the parking area. No name mention here, but I hope the management could brief their staff regarding this matter. He might be stress due to work, but so do other people. Otherwise, it was fabulous stay as usual.
