Seafest Hotel - Semporna
2
8.1 Excellent (552 reviews)
5.4 Okay
Pros: Location. Sea view
Cons: Its not very clean. Old furniture. Dusty curtains n carpet. Limited breakfast.
2.0 Mediocre
Pros: Nothing
Cons: The bathroom was dirty and there was barely enough toilet paper. I could not bring myself to have a shower in that bathroom. Yuk. The safe deposit box did not work. The room was just tired and super basic and felt dirty. No mini-refrigerator and the electric kettle got way too hot. Additionally, the free breakfast was only okay. They need to let the big fish in the fish tank by the elevators go free in the ocean—it is being tortured to keep it like that. Seafest and Semporna are both terrible in general—don’t go there if you don’t have to.
2.5 Mediocre

9.6 Excellent
Pros: What made this hostel were the owners. The mother, father, and son who run the hostel made us feel like a part of the family. They shared their home cooked meals with us - even if we weren’t there they set aside a bowl. They drove us to our hike and their son went with us and drove us to the pier - all free of charge. The son also showed us his favorite lunch spot! It really felt more like a home stay because they were so welcoming and made us feel so comfortable! I wouldn’t have expected that as Americans considering the hostel seems primarily visited by Chinese. Also, free laundry! And she rehung our clothes that weren’t drying properly. The rooms themselves were comfortable and the place was impeccably clean. Walking distance to all restaurants and the pier. We loved it here!
Cons: Iffy WiFi and not well marked (but they recommended a driver from the airport which helped a lot)

They even drive us to the national park for free and take us to airport for free when i missed my shuttle service. So unforgettable, thx to them, I'll be back again
9.2 Excellent
Pros: We stayed there to get a hint of local life and we did. It is among a local department building not far from the markets and harbor. The hospitality of the host family is amazing. The owner led us to tour the fruit market which locals use. The hostess brought us to the restaurant and recommended the dishes. The stone fish is the best I had. The junior helped us booked a taxi to the Tawau airport at a very reasonable price. We were treated with homemade red bean soup as desert. They even shared their favorite Korean instant noodles with two visitors and brought fruits and cakes to share. It's an open and friendly family and we thoroughly enjoyed the stay. I certainly will stay there if we come back and recommend to any friends. Just a reminder: it is not a 5-star hotel if you long for ultimate comfort: it is a home-stay. Oh man, the junior has such a big smile - you won't forget it! All the best, Family "See"徐!
Cons: There is an extra bed in the room. I guess it is meant for big families and budget travelers. We don't need it. I am sure there are more people appreciated this.
