We emailed Sipadan Inn to make a booking as it was cheaper than booking via the booking sites. A week before we arrived we sent a confirmation email so everything was ok on arrival. The first night we had a room at the front of the building which was fine, although you do get a bit of outside noise. It... More

Really nice hotel. Super clean and new. Fast wifi. Helpful staff. Good location with all the dive shops within a 1 minute walk. 110 RM a night for a double room. Cheap laundry across the road A/C works well. Only let down is the price didn't include breakfast.

We were only there for one night. The staff were helpful and polite. Rooms were good, bathrooms clean, linen fresh and air con good. Next door to pharmacy, convenient for restaurants - pretty much all you could need.

Nothing amazing, quiet room, AC works, clean, WiFi fast. The price is OK but we later moved to Holiday Inn down the road for diving days, and the rate there was a lot cheaper (at least with scuba), and room wasn't much worse. The location of Sipadan Inn is good, only stroll from harbour, restaurants, laundry and Giant super market.... More

We stayed in two hotels in Semporna and this was definitely the better of the two. Clean and tidy, new comfy bed and fresh smelling sheets. Good hot and cold power shower. We stayed here two nights and were not disappointed.

We stayed here for one night after we left Mabul and before returning to Tawau. We walked in without a booking, cant remember the price but remember being fairly happy with it. The double room was tiny and seeing as we had two full sets of dive kit with us it was a bit of a squeeze but perfectly adequate... More
