The hotel belongs to the same owner of sipadam scuba diving agent hence the location is extremely near to the dive shop. The interior decoration is very minimum but what else a diver would ask if all he/she asks would be just a clean and quiet stay after a day of diving? The hotel provides locker for keeping the valuable... More

The room and bathroom was clean, as well as the bedsheets, the tv was working, as well as wifi inside the room. i-pads for the guests available. No... More

Rates are 90 myr. We took a ride out from the airport for 25 myr. Room is small but the balcony is a saving grace where u can sit out and watch the streets. The local bus stand offers good buses to kk, lahad datu, semporna etc. Linen, jar of water offered. Lots of restaurants around.

I was staying in this hotel as part of Sipadan Diving package with Sipadan Scuba Diving center. Hotel offer basic comfort, rooms are relatively clean and air conditioned. Be aware that some rooms (and I had one) do not have windows!!! Hotel is next to Diving Center, restaurants, shops etc.

1. The price of RM86 each per night for twin and double room is within the average price range in Semporna. 2. The room is nice with basic amenities (shampoo and soap) 3. Clean. Not squeaky clean, but clean. 4. Check in is smooth. 5. Staffs are friendly. 6. You have everything you need here.

Use as just a place to crash after a day diving. Floor in the rooms were not clean- stains, dirt, hair... Bathroom had squatted insects on the wall. Very small bathroom and 1st room the shower stand was broken so you had to hold it. Bedding was clean and bed comfortable. No fan and no AC remote- so our first... More

The staff were very rude when we were asking questions about why the tv didn't work (this was fixed) and if we could change rooms due... More
