Short stay in Nexus Karambunai
Is a bit run down for the garden villa. Not suitable for elderly as buggy service drop off point is lobby, whereby restaurant is at lower floor and do not have lift service. Chinese restaurant service is not so good and it took an hour waiting time to serve food. Food choices limited for dinner and some are buffet which is not suitable for elderly and young kids.

A mediocre stay
The hotel staff were friendly enough but the hotel was a bit old and requires a bit of maintenance work. The food was quite disappointing and a lot of the things we wanted on the menu were out of stock. The kids activities were disorganised, whereby everything started late and only lasted 30mins when it was an hour activity. None of the water sport activities were available to do even though it was advertised everywhere. This hotel has so much potential but requires a lot of work to make it at a higher standard

I really liked the surrounding nature of the resort. Staffs were friendly as well. However, room (especially bathroom) and some of the resort facilities were outdated and unclean. Bathroom needs refurbishment work and overall cleanness needs to be improved.

Thoroughly enjoyed our family holiday here, we had two adjoining rooms that had beautiful views and were close to all amenities. Staff were amazing, nothing was too much trouble and their friendliness was outstanding. The restaurants were also outstanding and having live entertainment each evening was lovely. We would also recommend the Borneo Spa for a special treat and pamper. We would definitely love to return here one day, thank you.
