My partner and I had a pleasant stay at this hotel and it was a good choice considering it was the only decent hotel in the city. If you don’t have to stay in the city I would recommend staying at a resort further out as there is nothing worth seeing in the city and the littered streets and waters ...
Near to the airport. Plenty of restaurants around (walking distance). Easy to get grabcar. Highly recommended. Will stay here again.
Loved the chalets, the resort was a fab location and complete heaven of tranquility. Food ok , most staff ok although you are made to feel uncomfortable or even unwelcome if you try and use the restaurant/ bar after 9pm. Staff hovering over you to hurry you up and the shutters are down most nights ...
19/1-24/1i stay again at My Dream but I forgotten to take back my hoddie at reception there so I call up they said they found and will keep for me . This time when I went to again they said they lost it . They found it and they lose it that mean their insider are theft who stolen my hoddie will you ...
The staff were very friendly! I didn’t have a blanket in the dorm and it got pretty cold at night.
The hotel is convinient to access to Sandakan town . But need to improve in toilet water tap.
