All hotels/hostels in Semporna are within walking distance to each other. When you get to sea-front town of Semporna, it will be easy to find the place you reserved.
This is Sipadan Inn 2, which is different from "Sipadan Inn".
It has about 10 rooms with balcony facing the water.
We paid a premium, still acceptable, for 4 nights stay in sea-view room.
On the balcony, there are two chairs and a small table for you to enjoy the sea view, which is exactly the same as the hotel pictures offered.
The room is cozy and tidy.
As you came here mainly for scuba diving/snorkeling, staying somewhere comfortable is quite important for energy recovery.
Maybe next time I travel to Semporna, I will choose to stay on an island. But I would absolutely recommend Sipadan Inn 2 if you prefer to stay on land and take daily boat trip to visit different islands.
Tips: Public transportation is not available from Tauwu airport to Semporna. It will be best to reserve a van for pick-up thru the place you stay. If you fail to do so, you can also try your luck to walk out of airport to share the vehicle with others.
