My stay at Holiday Dive Inn was part of the package deal with Sipadan Scuba. The hotel is very basic but meets all the needs of a budget traveller. My room was neat with a clean bathroom. Bed sheets and towels were clean, too. The housekeeping staff cleaned my room every day and changed the towels often. They never changed... More

We booked as part of a scuba package and actually checked out two days early. Our room was very basic which was fine but the bed was hard and the pillows were flat. Our rooms A/C unit made so much noise we could barely sleep even with ear plugs. Additionally the street was loud outside the room until about midnight.... More

There were not a lot of rooms available when we arrived, and I'm sure they have comfortable rooms. Ours was a cheap one for 3 persons, without any window but with three very basic beds which offered a similar experience to bed bunks. Rooms and shared bathrooms were clean so no complain for the price.

This inn had to be booked when you dive with Sipadan Scuba as it is part of the package deal. The rooms were clean, decent sized, twin size beds fits only one person, a/c works fine (even without remote control), hot shower and flat screen TV that only has 3 channels (Fox Movies/Sports/HBO). The room I stayed in (A203) has... More

I feel compelled to write about the Holiday Dive Inn and Sipadan Scuba as I see several comments made by people which I feel are somewhat unjust. (Like the person complaining that Sipadan Scuba would not ‘lend’ their partner a wet suite to go snorkelling while he was diving... “they wanted to charge me for it”. Er…so? That is part... More

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

We stayed there for 4 nights, booked a normal double room in advance, online. Even though the room they gave us was downstairs right next to the reception desk, it was quiet. 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.
