Nicest hotel near Semporna docks”

clean, quiet, pleasant

We moved to Seafest hotel after one night at a divers' "inn" closer to Semporna jetty - it was far too noisy and smelly there, we couldn't sleep! Seafest hotel was pleasant, clean and QUIET, which is great when you are on a holiday and actually want to get a proper nights sleep to be ready for the next day's diving. Our room included buffet breakfast, which wasn't too bad - not brilliant, but there was enough variety in foodstuffs. The swimming pool was nice. We needed to pay a RM400 deposit for the room because we paid through Agoda and that payment hasn't cleared when we checked in, but it was fully refunded. The only problem with the hotel was WiFi - basically non-existent in the room, and VERY slow in the foyer. However, apparently this is a problem for all hotels and businesses in Semporna.

CLEAN, GOOD LOCATION, HELPFUL STAFF”

The Seafest is clean with a good location. This is a basic hotel. The hallway carpets are filthy and the bathroom is poorly designed resulting in pools of water on the bathroom floor after a shower. Other than these negatives, the room was clean, location is good and staff was helpful. Semporna is not a destination, it's transit stop for going to other islands for snorkeling or diving. The Seafest is nice place to stay for a transit stop. If I ever go to Semporna again, I would stay at the Seafest again and I recommend it! Fred Hsu

AC, friendly staff, nice pool area, clean

stayed at the Seafest as many other accommodations had reports about bedbugs, very afordable due to AGODA prices. friendly staff, hotel clean but a bit old, working AC and hot water, close to the jetty for trips to Mabul/ Sipadan or any of the other islands. If you plan on taking a bus from Semporna make sure you leave on time, it's a bit of a walk to the bus terminal behind the big mosque(about 15-20mins). Good hotel, a nice break from the budget places around.

Spectacular”

Good view, value for money, clean

This hotel has made Semporna my destination for my holiday next time. With rate of hotels keep rising in Kota kinabalu this not too expensive hotel has given me a very good alternative to spend my holiday with my family. The pool is not so big but with slides it is good enough for family with young children. Only a setback was the parking space is dusty and need to be improved.

The best that Semporna town can offer”

Quiet, Cheap, Decent

We booked two rooms, and one room was not ready, not until 4pm. This is the one and only 3 star hotel in Semporna, and given the price it is a pretty good deal. The room is of decent space, with a tiny bathroom. It has a small swimming pool with slides; kids definitely enjoy it. A bar that closes at 2am in the morning. Only took breakfast in the hotel, price is cheap and enough selection of food for a decent breakfast. Close to all the snorkelling/diving agents (about 10 minutes stroll to the town). Close to local restaurants, though seafood was not as cheap as I would have expected. A very concentrated Muslim area, no pork served. Westerners tend to hang out near the inns and bars in town, with menu that is customised for them; both price and dishes.

Nice hotel, with good and helpful staff”

The staff was helpful, the bad was really comfy, breakfast fresh with a variaty of choises

Stay in Semporna for 2 nights before taking off to Pom Pom. Semporna is not a place I would recommend any traveller to stay in for long. Be sure to have your valuables close when you go out for a walk, there are quite some pick pocketers there. Or even better leave them at the hotel, you have both a safety box in your room and they have a samller one in reception foc But if you do stay in Semporna I would recommend Seafest hotel, it's a little run down but compared to other hotels there it's really good. The staff is very helpful and nice. It's only 10 minutes by taxi to the jetty for Pom Pom, it costed 6 ringits

Probabely the best in the area”

Close to the jetty, walking distance to the market and restaurants

After have stayed at the Rig and Mabul island for almost 10 days, the Seafest Hotel reminds me back on what a "hotel" should be They provides most of the amenities although I don't have time to use - swimming pool/gym etc. It's very conveniently located on the harbour and has a "private" jetty, so you can pull/carry your luggages off the boat and walk to the hotel in 1 minute. Got a seaview room which is great. Walk to the market and restaurants area in 10 minutes. The breakfast is really just so-so, not too many choices. But it is the best, or highest degree of hotel in Semporna. Good for transit. The hotel staff can book taxi for you to the airport (RM100 per car per trip to Tawau airport).

Stopover for the Sipidan liveaboard "MV Celebes"”

Hard to single out anything

We chose to stay two nights so that we could get some refresher dives in preparation for our stay on the Sipidan liveaboard, "MV Celebes". The location is next to the harbour so very good for the liveaboard pick-up but it is a ten-minute walk from the main street of Semporna where the dive shops and restaurants are located. The rooms were comfortably to a three-star standard. We did not use the hotel facilities other than to take breakfast which exceeded our expectations. Oddly the mini-bar had no beer and there was no bar in the hotel. It is in a largely muslim area, the two restaurants across the road were also dry.
