Reviewed 18 October 2016

Location was superb with amenities, fast foods, supermarkets and historical places. Nearby with many seafood restaurants with reasonable price. Night markets selling local handicrafts for souvenirs. Borders with Sebatik Islands in Indonesia. Selling local produce of cocoa for chocolates. Tours to Cocoa Museum and Cocoa Village can be arranged.

The room is big and spacious. Iron board needs to be changed as the cover is torned. A lot of information has being provided in the room for review purposes. TV Programme are limited to few channels only, eventhough ASTRO guide has been provided, but didn't serve any purpose. Controling water temperature was a bit hard. Requested airport transfer but...

It is a fairly dated hotel. The hotel is in the "old" part of town. To give an idea of how old the hotel was, the old airport was nearby this area before it was shifted 38km out of town. But, overall for a single occupancy rate, it is much better than most other hotels in this price range. I...

I stayed for 2 nights at Hotel Emas. I used our company corporate rate which is just cost RM 98.00 per night. Room is a bit old but bathroom is big. Wifi is not strong in the room. However breakfast provided is the best in town, lots of foods is made from their own cocoa.

Stayed for 2 nights in the executive room. Furnitures are obviously old and some of it may need to be changed. Breakfast choices are plenty with combo of local and western. Fruits are fresh. The specialty here is their cocoa drink. Made from well known sabah beans. Plenty of products made from cocoa is readily available at the reception. The...

It's a dated hotel but they were able to arrange the best cocoa tour to their plantation, factory and museum. Very nice and informative. The meals they served were good enough. I love the tour very much and captured many photos. If you prefer a spacious room, do pay a bit more for the rooms at the top floor. This...

We stayed here for two nights, the hotel is pretty old and needs refurbishments made but the amount of time we spent there it was fine. The food was OK and the staff we quite friendly. The reason we booked this hotel was to do the Cocoa Tour (which is owned by the same parent company as the hotel). The...
