          Stayed 2 nights in February 2016

          Very relaxing "isolated" vacation”

          We had a lovely 2 night stay at Sunborneo. The island is beautiful with rustic and charming chalets overlooking the ocean. The meals are all provided (breakfast, lunch, and dinner!) and water activities are included (kayaking and snorkeling). We really enjoyed the time away from all the crowds and noise of Kota Kinabalu. Be aware that this isn't a luxury resort experience - which was quite enjoyable for us but may not be for everyone. There's no electricity in the room between 7am-6pm (as the generator is only used at night). The roosters and birds will wake you up at 5am, no doubt about it. And the food is all provided, but the meals do get repetitive, so I wouldn't really suggest staying for more than a few days. The ocean and beach is unfortunately quite dirty. There's a lot of trash (plastic bottles and such) that get brought in by the high tide and left behind once the tide recedes. It's unfortunate as this really isn't the fault of the resort, but it does dampen the experience.

          Small Island close to Kota Kinabalu”

          Relaxing surroundings, complimentary food, great nature

          We stayed in a lagoon side chalet which was basic but functional. It could use some decoration. The staff was very helpful and did everything to make our stay more comfortable. Unfortunately they speak very little English. We were served 3 meals a day (complimentary) with a great choice of fish and seafood. There was rice, vegetables and some chicken. They have even offered western food once as we stayed for some nights and they thought we would like some variety. There is only a small shop on the island with a very tiny range of goods so you should bring anything needed except from food and drinks. We discovered the small island with plenty of shells on the beach, but also some sandflies. We could use the kayak for free and went around the whole island. We were also offered to go for snorkeling which was great. Altogether we enjoyed our stay but we wouldn't stay that long next time.

          5星級的環境 1星級的住宿品質”

          地理環境很好,離亞庇搭穿船不用30分鐘可到達,海水清澈見底,珊瑚與魚類遍佈周圍,非常適合浮潛、潛水活動,但水中不時漂浮垃圾,美中不足 原訂兩日,但到了出發前兩天,被Resort告知滿房,退訂一日,感到不可思議,到當地後發現,整個島是一家名叫馬運旅行社所經營,絕大部分的消費者是來自中國的團客,由旅行社招攬,所以在島上講中文也能通。 原本安排海邊的小木屋被硬生生改排到山上,很失望,房間並沒有整理乾淨,浴室會積水且沒熱水,到了半夜竟然停水還跳電,蚊蟲非常多,不好入眠。 島上供三餐,都是自助餐,整體來說還不錯,有個小販賣部,但價格較高。 Resort 免費提供浮潛用具與獨木舟,但無安全措施與人員看管,使用者要注意。 建議想來的旅客直接找旅行社報名1日遊行程,非常不建議留島住宿
