A nice place to stay for a few nice. Beach is literally your front garden and you have the beach all to yourself. Breakfast was nice enough, cereal and fruit with a cup of tea/coffee. You aren't too far from the tip of Borneo and from Howard's place where we went to eat most of the time. We never actually...

This place was not for us... Bit on its return and too much 'motel' style. And probably because of their Lonely Planet review they raised the prices, which makes them overpriced. Staff is also spoilt and don't even stand up from behind the counter to serve you, they rather keep watching tv. They have good Wifi in the restaurant though....

This place has seen better days...and those better days have seen better days. After several minutes we managed to fiddle the key into the rusted lock of room 6. We were immediately welcomed by the fragrance of wet dog that was coming our way through the fluorescent-light lit room. On the wet-stained and rundown wall between the beds was a...

Absolutely marvellous location just across the road from the beach but the best of it's facilities are basic. Wifi available in restaurant and good. Rooms good, fans and a/c work, bed excellent, bathroom and shower just fine though floor slippery and uneven so water never really drains away.Family friendly with lots of kids travelling with parents when I was there....

Me and my gf stooped by this restaurant for dinner. The staff were strangley looking at us when we asked if we can order some mix food plate of fish and prawns. Then we finally talked out and waited for about 40min to get the food but there were like only 4 guests there. The fish was very dry and...

Location is approximately several hundred metres from the tip of Borneo. Restaurant on site with varied accommodation from roadside chalet type to inner chalets and some on the hill. Beach is just across the road and good for swimming and long walks with clear seas and minimal people. More investment is required in the buildings, and this is just basic...

We moved here after really not enjoying the place we had prebooked. What a difference. Such a lovely location, right in the middle of the beautiful sandy bay at the tip of Borneo. This family run place to stay makes you feel welcome. It is causal. The smallish restaurant is a hit with local as well as overseas visitors. It...

Tommy's is in the most amazing location. With a stunning beach on your doorstep and a short walk to the Northern Tip, they're one of the best positions in the area. We stayed in one of the 'luxury' villas which are further up the hill but have amazing views of the beach and sunset. Having been to the area before,...
