Excellent location with seaview & private balcony”

Location, surrounded with food, seaview and private balcony

We stayed one night in Semporna after diving at Mabul & Sipadan and before our flight departing from Tawau airport the next morning. The room was not that big but it has a private balcony facing the waterfront and if you wake up early in the monring, you may see the locals trading for seafood in small canoes. There are many seafood restaurants right below and next to the hotel, so it may get a bit noisy at night but on the other hand it also means there are good food - we had dinner at a restaurant called "Fat mother" and it was great (and cheap!). The hotel has one floor only - staircase only, no lift - but the staffs are really helpful and willing to help if you have big luggages. Very strong WIFI connection - no problem with wifi reception even when we are having dinner at the waterfront street level outside the hotel. One negative side is we didn't have hot water for our shower. Taxi to Tawau airport cost about RM100 and takes about 1hr10min. (Another way of cheaper taxi is to book minibus through Scuba Junkie, which is another accommodation in Semporna who do minibus sharing to the airport so you can split taxi fee with other passengers)

Semporna Trip”

Location, food and cleanliness

Our stay at Sipadan Inn 2 was excellent. Location is strategic as it is near restaurants, shops, convenient store and jetty - all within walking distance. Checking in was a breeze, room was clean, nice with excellent view of the sea. A bit noisy at night because of the restaurants below but otherwise no complains. We would definitely choose Sipadan Inn 2 again when we are in Semporna.

new hotel, good room condition

I can sure this Sipadan Inn 2 is the best hotel in Semporna. It's a new hotel, everything is with good condition. Staff services are excellent, too. They prepare a Semporna map for tourists, indicating the dinning location, bus terminal & dive shops, which really helped me a lot!

better than most in Semporna”

Price, location, clean room

Lets be honest, Semporna isn't a nice place to stay. It is however the jumping off point to some of the most stunning dive/snorkelling sites in the world. If you have hundreds/thousands of dollars to stay then you may choose to stay on one of the islands such as Mabul (although I don't hear great things about those either). We opted to stay in Semporna and go on daily trips out to the islands rather then pay over the odds for accommodation on the islands. Sipidan Inn 2 was just what we wanted. A small but clean and comfortable room. A bonus was the kettle and complimentary tea, coffee, sugar and creamer, something that you don't find too often in budget accommodation in Malaysia. The staff were friendly, the internet access was good (although a little congested come 6.30 when the day trippers returned to 'base'). Do note that a 50 RM deposit need to be paid upon check-in and will be returned when checking out. (They never tell you this in the information when booking.) If you want a room with a view, go for the 'sea-view' room, they also have a balcony - these are rooms 1-9. (Staff were much more friendly than at Sipidan Inn 1 - with the rooms being much more modern and clean. Also our room smelt of stale cigarettes in Sipidan 1. I would go with Sipidan Inn 2.

We stayed at Sipidan Inn 2 for over a month while we completed our dive masters.. The rooms are very clean.. Modern furnishings and our villa was spacious and we had a beautiful balcony..

it's a newly open hotel in the port. staff is very friendly and they speak good english. rooms have good facilities, a bit small but with all the necessary. there are many restaurants around. it's a very good option is going for diving. be careful as our pick up van went to sipadan inn instead of sipadan inn 2. better to make sure that both hotels are connected.

actually the area of semporna(tourist area) is not very large, the distance between sipadan inn 2 and sipadan inn 1 is just 2 minutes walk. what i can say is sipadan inn2 is better beacause the room is more clean and all equipments seem new~ there are 2 jetty piers, one is near sipadan inn1 , and the other one near seafest hotel. i don`t like sipadan inn 1 because there is a smell in the room. all staffs are nice, the price is a little bit high because of vip room~

Good hotel prior to transit to the islands

I booked two rooms. They upgraded one to VIP because of a mistake/overbooking due to the Lepa Regatta Festival. The ordinary room has no view; i.e. windows facing interior. but the VIP one has balcony facing dragon inn and the sea. The view from here was superb, and I think the actual rate is not expensive. As we were in Semporna partly to watch Lepa Regatta (kind of festival of traditional boats), we could watch the event easily from our room. Breakfast is not served.

the hotel seems quite a big one with sipadan inn (the first hotel to this series) located just next street. this si2 stands next to dragon inn which is in the water, but views and conveniences are much better and prices are much lower. all staff were very friendly. we checked out 1 day earlier and the manager agreed to refund the balance, even the terms and conditions said no. the accommodation cost here is economic compared with staying in sipadan island or marbu island, not to mention those 5-star resorts.

Convenient hotel to wait for the islands & Sipadan”

Location, modern rooms and nice staff

Semporna isn't the most exciting place in the world, so like so many other reviews we'd only recommend staying for a night whilst waiting to go diving. The hotel itself is modern and clean with nice staff so ideal for a short stay. The staff were also very helpful when I needed to arrange for a late check out as my husband was ill and we couldn't take our transfer as planned. As we switched rooms for our late check out we also saw both types of room - standard and VIP. VIP is definitely worth the extra money if you can! A balcony overlooking the sea, much larger space and nice bathroom. The standard room was fine, but with not much to do in Semporna it's nice to have a balcony to relax on and watch the world go by.

Best in Semporna”

Good value, clean and comfortable.

We stayed in the VIP room at the beginning and end of our dive trip out to Sipidan, and it was perfectly good. THe quality of accommodation in Semporna is not brilliant, but seeing as the only reason most people will stay there is because of diving, then this is likely to be the best you can get I think. The staff were accommodating, Semporna is OK for the odd overnight - find where the divers are and you can always be guaranteed of a good night... I recommend the Dive Inn! I have since recommended this accommodation to a couple of other dive friends.

New, clean, convenient location

I picked this hotel over Sipadan Inn I after reading online reviews saying that this is cleaner and newer with a better view if you happen to stay in the rooms with sea view. This hotel did not disappoint as the interior was new and clean. However it was quite small and congested in the room, leaving only a tiny corridor for walking. Not ideal for family with children but acceptable for traveling with friends/couples and if you do not intend to spend much time in the room. Location is good as it is around 5-10mins walk from the jetty where u embark on island hoppings, and nearby there are several restaurants which sell pretty good seafood.
