Recommended by Borneo Divers. Situated across bridge from main part of town - 5 min walk. Close to jetty for pick up for Mabul. Large spacious room, good amenities - saw swimming pool but did not use it. Breakfast geared towards local tastes. Okay as a transit hotel.

This is the third time I stayed at Seafest hotel & I'm still happy with my decision even though there are new hotels/inns sprouting around Semporna town now. This time I stayed at Superior twin village view for 3 nights, RM150/day inclusive breakfast for two. Extra person for breakfast has to pay additional RM18. As usual, Seafest delivers, be it...

I think that this hotel the best in Semporna, but it doesn't mean that you will be satisfied... Good: 1) big rooms 2) very tasty food in the restaurant 3) sauna, steam, gym 4) nice view to the ocean 5) close to many dive-companies Not good: 1) in some rooms there is no wi-fi at all !

A nice business hotel and minutes walk away from the jetty. Good for those companies who intend to do seminars/meetings/functions while having funs in the nearby islands after all the business chaos. Reasonable pricing for a twin standard room at RM 99. My family really appreciate the comfortable beds and hot showers after the Mabul island snorkeling activities. My 9... More

I stayed at this hotel in February 2012 during a transit from Tawau to Mabul Island for a dive trip. The hotel is a 10 minute walk to the jetty and the shophouses where most of the dive shops are located. The hotel is average, with clean rooms, simple basic rooms which are clean but not luxurious. The hot shower... More

This architect's nightmare which completly fails to blend in with the neighbouring fish wharf, offers everything you would expect from a professional 3 star hotel. I have nothing to object about the rooms, cleaning, friendliness or efficiency - the hotel lack any sign of personality, though. I came without a reservation - the lobby reception was friendly and I was... More

The seafest is conveniently located right across from the jetty if you are here to transfer to an island resort. The hotel outside looks good, inside is in desperate need of a refurb and some elbow grease wouldn't hurt either. Nothing awful, no insects or rodents. Sleep quality was fine. I would stay again for one night. The breakfast is... More

This is the second time i check in to this hotel. The hotel has extended since, with a new wing and a swimming pool. Also visited the gym, the gym is spacious and clean. Although the hotel has aged a little, it is still one of the best hotel in town. Thumbs Up!

We stayed in the hotel in July, 2012. The location is great and the room is ok. Well, what do you expect in Semporna.? This is by far the best compared to the other hotels in town. The area is nothing to be excited about. This is probably the one and only reason why you visited Semporna and the Islands-... More
