Stayed here a day before heading back to Semenanjung because the hotel was the nearest one from the jetty. Yes it is an Inn where inside your room you could see the sea underneath the floor because it is made out of wood. What concerns me is while I was showering I could see the opposite guest hanging their towels.....

I booked a room for 2 nights from their website and rate was 105RM per night. When I arrived, they asked me 155Rm. I asked why? Silly answer was it: it was old price, we changed the rates.. So, I left the hotel and found cheaper one.

Great place to stay. Easy to find and near all the activities. A stroll to the dive shops, supermarket and shopping. Great treat being suspended above the sea. Magical! Very comfortable room. Great novelty tourist shops and lovely restaurants nearby.

No...

The only reason 4 of us stayed 3D2N is because of the strategic place of this hotel. Our tour boat was just beside it, near Jeti Umum Semporna. And price-wise was quite cheap. Room adequate with the basic necessities - functioning aircond, slow water heater but there was a large pail to fill up, clean sheets albeit patched here and...

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.
