We used a family room for one night in December for 4 people. There was one double bed, a single bed and an extra matress on the floor. We used the room upstairs in the restaurant, it was nice to have the ocean view from the room, however as people sit on the deck next to the room to eat,... More

Stayed here for 3 weeks over Christmas and New Year 2015 as a solo mature traveller. It was my third stay in the last 12 years. If you are looking for a throbbing up beat resort then STI is not for you. To start with it's in Kinarut some 20k (12 miles) outside Kota Kinabalu with only mini buses and/or... More

The location is not that far from Lokawi and Papar town. Its by the side of the road to catch a bus. But it is also very quiet by the beach. Which is great. The view by the beach in the evening is wonderful. There is a swimming pool and tv area. The room was cosy, the tv is old... More

Stayed here as last night of intrepid trip. Hung out by the beach and relaxed with some beers before a really great bbq. Beach is really dirty and full of rubbish which is a huge shame but sunset views were lovely. It is a long way from KK but good for access to airport. Staff all very friendly and welcoming.

This is a budget style hotel wth various room configurations. I was here with a group and in general we fund the rooms clean and tidy. Remembering this is Malaysia and the have different standards to Australia, so yes some rust marks and stained grout, mismatched tiles etc but certainly clean enough. James is an amazing host. He managed to... More

I was really worried about staying here after the reviews. It was better than expected. The beach is no different than those in Mexico. We all walked on it and it was fine. The food was excellent with great views. The staff was very helpful in organizing transportation to the airport. I really don't see why anyone would stay in... More

This is a pleasant place to stay after a long road trip. Located in Kinarut, just south of Kota Kinabalu. Has a restaurant and a nice relaxing pool which was refreshing on a hot day. Beach attracts a lot of rubbish so wouldn't swim in it, but the views and sunsets are spectacular on a good day. Accommodation was reasonably... More

We stayed here on the last night of our intrepid trip. The view out to sea is superb but the beach is a rubbish tip. The rooms were clean and the WiFi was OK. We were not due to leave for the airport until 5pm and they kindly let us stay in the room. The 3 of us also had... More

The rooms here are quite basic and it is quite a distance away from KK city centre (about 30mins by taxi). The restaurant is a nice place to sit and watch the sunset over the beach. Staff are helpful. Definitely a 'budget' option.

This hotel was not my choice - it was the final day of a (very enjoyable) Intrepid Trip called Borneo Adventure. But people need to understand the beach right out the front of this 2-star hotel is nothing less than a rubbish tip Several of our group decided to take a walk along the beach but gave up once they...
