Best place we stayed in Sabah, somewhere to totally chill. wonderful diving at Sipidan, and the resort being car free is perfect for families...kids can run free wherever they want. Our room was basic but clean and comfortable, and the service & food was excellent - especially the fresh tuna sashimi, straight out of the sea. The only downside is the rubbish strewn around the illegal Phillipino community (which you don't really need to go near) - a problem all over Sabah, with thousands of plastic bags and bottles dumped in the sea a particular problem.
