This was a smart reasonably-priced business-style hotel. We got a standard room (big size, comfortable bed, wardrobe, sideboard, bedside table furniture; big bathroom, everything worked), without breakfast, for 115 Ringgit, just for a 1-night stopover before going to Mabul. We did not even get chance to use the pool or gym facilities, but we enjoyed the big comfortable room, the...

We drove from Tawau to Semporna with our beloved classic vw beetle to celebrate World VW Day. So we've decided to check in to Seafest Hotel since it is the only one in Semporna with swimming pool. THe price was fairly cheap, RM115++ for a standard twin sharing bed with hot & cold water shower, standard toiletries, two bottles of...

This is my second stay. Came here during the annual Regatta Lepa last year and again this year. Room are large, bed are comfortable. Room service is decent but can be slow during peak time - it ends at 11pm though. Breakfast fare at The Lepa Cafe is decent, competent and filling. Go early i.e. 7am, any later, it'll get...

This large, well appointed hotel faces the ocean. The rooms are spacious and clean and the staff are very helpful. The swimming pool, which is located outdoors on the 3rd floor is quite nice but situated in full sun all day. It would be better if there was a canopy over it to provide some respite from the hot sun....

We paid £30 for our room but were upgraded to a deluxe room (we returned a few days later and stayed in the standard room which was equally good -in fact had a more interesting view as we watched the fishing boats come in in the evening). The room was clean, well presented and a high standard for the cost....

If you HAVE to stay in Semporna.. stay here. it's not the typical backpackers place: it's more a Chinese business place. And ok, maybe you pay some more money than in other places (we paid 38 euro for a double room) but you'll have a huge room, with great views over the harbour, with a nice and clean bathroom and...

Booked a deluxe sea view room over Internet. Good check-in, superb room overlooking harbour & distant islands, fridge, enormous double bed & toilet amenities. Breakfast with both local &western options (toaster, cereals hidden behind cold drink machines and eggs-to-order bar). If you get down after 9am then be warned most western dishes have gone ( staff will get more if...

Recommended by Borneo Divers. Situated across bridge from main part of town - 5 min walk. Close to jetty for pick up for Mabul. Large spacious room, good amenities - saw swimming pool but did not use it. Breakfast geared towards local tastes. Okay as a transit hotel.

This is the third time I stayed at Seafest hotel & I'm still happy with my decision even though there are new hotels/inns sprouting around Semporna town now. This time I stayed at Superior twin village view for 3 nights, RM150/day inclusive breakfast for two. Extra person for breakfast has to pay additional RM18. As usual, Seafest delivers, be it...

Good: 1) big rooms 2) very tasty food in the restaurant 3) sauna, steam, gym 4) nice view to the ocean 5) close to many dive-companies Not good: 1) in some rooms there is no wi-fi at all !
