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 hotel was nice, clean rooms with bathroom n tv which was cool. The whole hotel only had 2 air on remotes so if you got hot/cold in the night this couldn't be changed. 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

The air-condition in the room is not working in any way. I have talked to others at the hotel who has the same problem. The "wi-fi" is only working a few times a week if you sit in the reception. So no, I would definitely not recommend this hotel to anyone unless you want to sleep in 45 degrees. It... More

We stayed here one night before going out to Mabul for diving and especially enjoyed the fact that our double room had a TV as we hadn't watched TV in a while :) The room was nice, with a little bit of natural light, had a private bathroom and a/c (although they only have two a/c remotes for the whole...

Stayed one night on my way back through from Mabul and opted for a king room with a balcony because it was the only room they had available with a window. The "balcony" is just a door out onto the shared covered deck area on the second floor, but really I just like to have a window and didn't even... More

U should understand that u go to Semporna just to overnites and not exactly to "stay and rest in the hotel". U go there for diving. After that you are so tired that u go back to the hotel at 9pm and fell asleep. So for that this hotel is the best. All rooms are with aircon, clean, We have... More

Let's face it, you don't go to Semporna because it's a must see place during your travels in Borneo. You go so can catch the boat to Mabul/Sipadan. If you have to stay in Semporna the choice is pretty limited, to backpackers standards. Yes this place ticks the basic boxes : a bed, toilet, shower and wifi - when you... More

All the dive hotels pretty much have the same price in Semporna but if you want to dive Sipidan from Semporna your only option is Sipidan divers which this hotel is associated with. A/C is barely working walls are stained. Price w. Dive package from Sipidan divers is 86RM for a double room with window. Beds are clean with ok... More

A decent budget hotel with everything we need for our snorkelling trip based in Semporna. We had a double room with a king size bed, and a door to the balcony. Very clean and bright. Bed is comfy with clean linens. Bright clean bathroom with a nice shower (good temperature and water pressure!), even with shampoo provided! Decent towels too.... More
