First of all, it is good to know that you don't go to Semporna to enjoy the city itself. This is good for diving only. Holiday dive Inn is very basic. We arrived and asked the staff to remove the cockroach. Except this the room was decently clean. Bedsheets and towels are not neat at all but whatever is on...

Stayed here for 3 nights whilst scuba diving. Reasonably priced, perfectly clean, quiet and it had adequate facilities. AC worked fine and reception dealt with our simple requests in a friendly and efficient manner. Lockers are outside the room, but that wasn't a bother. Would stay here again without hesitation. Found it to be one of the cheaper options when...

Stay there for 5D4N. Basic room with hot shower, aircond, TV, kettle i.e basic things that you really need :-) The room was serviced everyday, comfortable bed. Convenient location, nearby to waterfront & eating place. Friendly & helpful staff. If you need an airport transfer, just inform them, they'll arrange it for you. Choose the room with balcony

Basic room. The aircon is alright. Wi-fi is weak. No safety box, but you can hire a locker downstairs at the lobby, just talk to the receptionist. One thing I dont like about here, is their shower is terrible, the shower water pressure is very low! You hardly can wash your hair if you got long hair.

An OK base if you are diving all day. It was clean, had comfortable beds and the rooms are serviced each. What they should do - Provide a drying area as all our stuff had to be hung around the room on doors and chair and never dried. Clean the wall where the air con has leaked. It really looked...

We only stayed for one night as we were on a 6 days trip from Tawau to KK. Check in was a breeze, room was basic and comfortable. There was no remote for the A/C so in the middle of the night we just switched off our unit then turn it back on in the morning. Toilet was clean just...

My stay at Holiday Dive Inn was part of the package deal with Sipadan Scuba. The hotel is very basic but meets all the needs of a budget traveller. My room was neat with a clean bathroom. Bed sheets and towels were clean, too. The housekeeping staff cleaned my room every day and changed the towels often. They never changed...

We booked as part of a scuba package and actually checked out two days early. Our room was very basic which was fine but the bed was hard and the pillows were flat. Our rooms A/C unit made so much noise we could barely sleep even with ear plugs. Additionally the street was loud outside the room until about midnight....

There were not a lot of rooms available when we arrived, and I'm sure they have comfortable rooms. Ours was a cheap one for 3 persons, without any window but with three very basic beds which offered a similar experience to bed bunks. Rooms and shared bathrooms were clean so no complain for the price.
