i don't recommend this lodge to anyone who wants to have a happy vacation because vincent the owner try to hold me and my husband in all the tour we want to go..the room is just so so but the bathroom my oh my i even need my husband to hold all my clothes or else it will get wet..first day we plan to climb mountain but he insisted to take us to the kinabalu park and poring hot spring and we pay higher than the travel agency outside which my husband didn't like. He drive very very fast while drinking beer whole day!!!! and smoking or even answer phone calls its very dangerous..and it seems that if your with him you don't have a choice but to follow what he wants. He even yelling to the house care taker and once you want to book a tour with him he asked immediately for the payment. When were already in the mountain he even told us to tour fast because were running out of time wtf we pay for that trip and he wants to tour fast..when were heading our way he stop in a grocery store i thought he will buy a food but jeezz its another tiger beer!! im holding my husbands hand while he drives the car because its very very fast and me and my husband decides to go to the lodge for sleeping and the rest day we book our own trip to some jesselton point travel n tour! and the owner of te travel agency was the one to send us to our day trip and he even tour us in some places for free!!!and we just go to the lodge to sleep!!and we had fun in padas rafting mari mari cultural village island hopping and city tour without any help from vincent !!! he even said inter continental break fast but the only breakfast there was loaf bread and jam and coffee everyday..theres no juice water or soft drinks but a bunch of beers in can..
