The rooms were clean, decent sized, twin size beds fits only one person, a/c works fine (even without remote control), hot shower and flat screen TV that only has 3 channels (Fox Movies/Sports/HBO). The room I stayed in (A203) has...

I feel compelled to write about the Holiday Dive Inn and Sipadan Scuba as I see several comments made by people which I feel are somewhat unjust. (Like the person complaining that Sipadan Scuba would not ‘lend’ their partner a wet suite to go snorkelling while he was diving... “they wanted to charge me for it”. Er…so? That is part...

The hotel belongs to the same owner of sipadam scuba diving agent hence the location is extremely near to the dive shop. The interior decoration is very minimum but what else a diver would ask if all he/she asks would be just a clean and quiet stay after a day of diving? The hotel provides locker for keeping the valuable...

Rates are 90 myr. We took a ride out from the airport for 25 myr. Room is small but the balcony is a saving grace where u can sit out and watch the streets. The local bus stand offers good buses to kk, lahad datu, semporna etc. Linen, jar of water offered. Lots of restaurants around.

1. The price of RM86 each per night for twin and double room is within the average price range in Semporna. 2. The room is nice with basic amenities (shampoo and soap) 3. Clean. Not squeaky clean, but clean. 4. Check in is smooth. 5. Staffs are friendly. 6. You have everything you need here.

Use as just a place to crash after a day diving. Floor in the rooms were not clean- stains, dirt, hair... Bathroom had squatted insects on the wall. Very small bathroom and 1st room the shower stand was broken so you had to hold it. Bedding was clean and bed comfortable. No fan and no AC remote- so our first...
