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.

Stayed for a night before leaving to Mabul Island. Good location, surrounded by seafood restaurants and dive shops. Clean rooms, friendly staffs. Although has power-trip but was recovered within 10min.

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

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

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
