We booked the seafest hotel beforehand via internet for 2 nights. Upon arrival everything looked ok, the lobby and reception that is. Check in went smooth but then....we entered the room. First you have to go in a tiny, smelly lift to reach the dirty carpeted floor you're staying on. Ours was on the 4th floor and the room was... More

We planned to stay in semporna in order to reach the nearby islands with daytrips. Seafeast hotel was the best choice to avoid all the creepy,dirty,moldy shacks around town. This is not a luxury hotel either but still affordable and clean (mostly). Looks like an 80's hotel from some horror b movie but we had a nice 4 days staying... More

I stayed in a village view room which was great. Comfy beds and clean bathrooms. The walls had scratches and marks on the 5th floor but looked a little better on the 3rd floor. The pool was great but I had two complaints. Breakfast didn't start til 7am so my first stay I didn't get to eat breakfast as my... More

Nice, clean, friendly staffs. Although only stay for a night, but it has what I want. Rated as 5-stars hotel in town, YES, it really make it! Rooms are clean with good view of the sea. AC is good, more movies on TV. Services are good and fast.

I went to the hotel with low expectations after reading numerous negative comments about the place. But i must say that my stay was pretty good. Sure, the place is a bit dated in terms of decor but i'm satisfied with their room. It's still comfortable & the view's nice as well. I do not encounter the smelly corridors/toilet others... More

This is a hotel with pretensions it cannot live up to.....imagine a motel six gone to seed but with a glossy reception area. The food at the restaurant was abysmal, the corridors stunk of something I don't want to imagine, the room was monk like and the shower hadn't been cleaned...obviously as I found a previous occupant's hair shampoo. The... More

I would not recommend this hotel at all -you could get better in Seporna for your money. The hotel and its rooms are all very shabby, the bathroom was very run down and smelt of sewerage. The air con did not really work. The breakfast was very average and overall the service was also very poor from the staff. This... More

My husband and I stayed for a week at this nice hotel in Semporna. It is clean, well situated, good service in all the areas (front desk, restaurant and housekeeping). If you want to experience and see the TRUE life of this fishing town, you need to ask for a room facing the fishing boats (the back side). One time... More

You may check the promotion prices for non peak season and book online directly on Seafest Hotel website . The price is similar to other hostels. I stayed for 2 nights for the cheapest room but it is quite clean and spacious. I like the small swimming pool as no more thing can do in land. However, the underwater lightings... More

I stayed here for one night on my way to the diving boat cruise on the Celebes Explorer. As I learnt pretty soon Semporna is a dirty -small -city -where -there -is -nothing -to -do. The center is 5-7 min walk from the Seafest and you have sea or "on the water village" view that is correct, the road going... More
