3D2N Semporna ”

Stayed 7 days in Semporna in 3 didferent resorts including Seafest Hotel. Pricing wise, it is way much affordable than other resort with similar facilities. They provide free breakfast and the hotel is equipped with gym and swimming pool and kids would definitely love it! Seafest is the most decent hotel in Semporna with hot water that works, clean spacious room with coffee making facilities, safe deposit box & fridge. We stayed in family room facing the jetty and my husband enjoy watching the fisherman unloading tons of fishes from the boat every morning. However you can smell the fish if you’re at the pool but that’s not so bad given the fact that there’s market nearby as well. The hotel is also strategically located so if you plan on island hopping it would be very convenient. Lots of seafood restaurants with affordable price and cafes nearby including Starbucks, Secret Recipe, Tealive. If you want to try the local food, Semporna town is just 5 mins drive if you prefer it is also walking distance. Definitely choice of stay for my upcoming trip.

family room with sea view ”

great view as early in the morning we got to watch fishermen unloading their fishes from the big boats while all the small boats gathering around to buy some fishes to sell to their village... love the view as it was new experience for us ... if im going there again i will request the same room again. just across the big street next to dragon inn (around 10 minutes walk) there a row of seafood stalls. we choose the muslim one at first end from the hotel, the food was nice and fresh. the price is reasonable. well here u would love to bring your polistrine foam box or ice box too in the car as they sell fresh life seafood. many seller will walk on food and you can bargain for good price. please dont bargain much as most of them are very poor and they just make living... have pity and good heart. all in all im satisfied. we choose the hotel instead of inn because we want more privacy.

Value for money for me. Conveniently located near my dive center and finding good meals is no problem. A stone's throw away is Tealive and Starbucks. A seafood restaurant is next to the hotel and a few other food outlets are closeby too. The only drawback is it is quite far from Semporna town (15minute walking distance). Other than that, this hotel is perfect for me.
