The Magellan Sutera Resort reviews

5.8 Ordinary
  • August 2008

  • Family with young children
  • Hong Kong

The location and environment was wonderful, however, the staff could be politely described as well-meaning, but incompetent. Food in the hotel was definately not 5-star, and frequently items advertised were not available, or substituted with food of lesser quality. Room not carefully cleaned prior to arrival and this continued throughout stay. Not bad, just not what we would expect, and perhaps due to the the hotel employing males instead of females for cleaning. A number of very small things were forgotten or left unanswered for hours (or days) which when you have a small child is not helpful. Overall, for the price it was fairly valued, but really is a 4-star hotel, not 5-star. Suggestions are you stay here and eat at the Shangri-la or down in the local satay-houses.
