Over rated, over crowded and over priced
Style of buildings, friendly staff, close to beach
Ok. Stayed in much nicer place up the road a few minutes which was cheaper. I wouldn't go back to Santai for the price we paid.

Great stay, fantastic hôtel
Rooms, food, employees
The hôtel and its rooms are fantastic. Cozy small place, but quiet and very close to the sea. The cuisine (international and local) is excellent and affordable. The beach is not that fantastic, but the hôtel has a small but nice swimming pool to rest and sunbath. The rooms are in two floor Sarawak style cottages: very neat and peculiar.

Third time we have stayed here
Beach front; small but friendly and pool large enough for guests; great food and staff!
I've stayed here twice before with adults and this time we took 3 small children with 5 adults - thoroughly enjoyed it here and so do the children!

Equiste Bungalows Overlooking Pool and See
Lovely large Bungalow Rooms, Delicious Food, Beautiful Setting
One of the most beautiful places on the water I have ever stayed at. Beautiful surroundings and landscapses, delicious food, great pool, attentive and helpful staff, close to snorkeling and scuba diving, beautiful and luxurious handmade wooden bungalows. I will stay here again. 5 stars at a budget price.

Generally Decent
Proximity to beach, Pool, Quiet
I was with two of my girlfriends and our stay was very relaxed. There's not much in the surrounding area, but we were just here to snorkel and be by the beach, which is what we did. The hotel was fine - not exceptional, but nothing bad. Satisfactory food, nice enough staff. The one issue we had was with the room temperature. With three of us, two slept in the bed in the main part of the room and 1 up in the loft. It was very hot in the loft, but the A/C blew directly onto the lower bed, so it was freezing down there if it was a decent temperature in the loft.

Relaxing, restoring and pleasant.
Pool, good food, pleasant rooms.
No issues with stay. If you were staying for longer you might wish for a more extensive menu although what is available is fine.

Pretty hotel, quiet, comfortable
Nice view, cool room with porch/balcony, nice pool
We enjoyed our stay. The bungalow room was really cool, with the second floor balcony with a view of the ocean. The menu was okay, and that was good cuz it isn't that easy to get around for other eating options.

Beautiful little hotel for the price on the beach.
coffee on the porch, good restaurant, quiet room
We changed rooms from one next to the road because it was too loud. The food was consistently good and reasonably priced. Liked the sleepy area and friendly staff. For the price, it was a wonderful value.
