I came to this resort not because of the stars visitors has rated it but was more due to the location it was situated. Judging from the map, I guess it will be sorrounded by clear water sea plenty of fish and corals. And mind you, I was right.

Stayed here for 2 nights for Island Trip. The room i chose was a double room and in the last few rows because it is cheaper by RM 20-30 from the front rows. It is not luxurious but the room had air conditioner, small box TV with only 2 channel, one was Fox Movie and another was Chinese channel. The... More

Very average value for money. rooms OK with big beds but the bathroom is not - you feel like having shower outside with all the possible bugs. Do not trust their Wi-fi promises the Internet was rubbish both times we stayed there. Aircon worked ok.

My review is mainly based on the fact that, while Semporna, in my opinion, is horrible, if you have to stay there, this is a pretty good place. However, my main recommendation would be, get a boat to the islands ASAP!! Dragon Inn is off the main hububb (which is loud, dusty, dirty and busy - and I live in... More

Dragon Inn is a overwater chalets, they have many rooms. You'll have to walk quite a distance from the shore to get to the reception and then to your room. It is probably not the best place to stay but generally average. It is near to the jetty to go toi islands, which is also near to many restaurants. This... More

The receptionist were friendly and helpful. The room was also cleaned and lovely. Nice restaurant next to beach. Good wifi access from the rooms. Near to the town, walking distance. Overall a good place to stay for a budget backpack traveller. Wish we can stay for another night and explore the town more.
