My husband and I booked the Seafest Hotel as it seemed it was the best option to stay in Semporna for a mid-range hotel. As the taxi drove up to the hotel, it seemed very impressive on the outside but it was a bit dated on the inside. We had a twin room and the sheets were clean and it...

You cannot ask for more about the hotels in semporna. Since we had a lot of phtography and diving equippments, we want the air-con to keep the room dry and clean. Tell the truth, that's the reason we chose seafest hotel. In all, it's nice. we will go back again.

Me and my boyfriend stayed at this hotel for one night after our scubadiving trip to Mabul Island with Scuba Junkies ( very nice resort and dive center!). We have made the reservation approx 3 weeks beforehand and I have to say the reservation process ran very smoothly : very prompt and accurate mails from Razmah (Reservation Department) . We...

Although the Seafest Hotel is the best of the hotels in Semporna, that isn't saying much. After upgrading to a deluxe room, we were expecting more than we received. The internet had been down for 3 days prior to our arrival and never came back up during our 3 night stay. The shower sprayed water all over the floor and...

We stayed for four nights while diving / snorkeling the surrounding islands. Sea fest provides an excellent base and is far enough from the hustle and bustle to be quiet, yet close enough for a short stroll to get dinner and/or drinks.

Stayed here for one night before proceeding to SMART Resort on Mabul. Paid about RM$100/night without breakfast. Room was ok, clean, well furnished, good aircon, decent bathroom and cable TV. From the outside it looks like that newest and best hotel around. Location is really good for those going to Sipadan as the jetty for the speedboats is right in...

The first time in Semporna I stayed at Dragon Inn & I was not happy with it. I stayed at Seafest Hotel twice already & so far I'm happy with my choice. The room, the linens & the bathroom is clean. If you were in Semporna to enjoy under the sun activities, you can get a really good night sleep...

We stayed here as part of a package so didn't know what to expect. Having read the other reviews on our return, most hit it on the head. It's supposed to be the best of the local hotels. To be honest, the room and service was average, the breakfast buffet an after thought. But it served it's purpose of giving...

This "hotel" is really not worth staying at. The rooms were not clean and we found mosquitoes in out rooms and running ants in the breakfast buffet! Maybe it's cheap, but there is a reason why it is cheap... We changed hotel to the Sipadan Inn, which was much better and cleaner, and also as cheap. And then it is...
