Stay there for 5D4N. Basic room with hot shower, aircond, TV, kettle i.e basic things that you really need :-) The room was serviced everyday, comfortable bed. Convenient location, nearby to waterfront & eating place. Friendly & helpful staff. If you need an airport transfer, just inform them, they'll arrange it for you. Choose the room with balcony

Basic room. The aircon is alright. Wi-fi is weak. No safety box, but you can hire a locker downstairs at the lobby, just talk to the receptionist. One thing I dont like about here, is their shower is terrible, the shower water pressure is very low! You hardly can wash your hair if you got long hair.

An OK base if you are diving all day. It was clean, had comfortable beds and the rooms are serviced each. What they should do - Provide a drying area as all our stuff had to be hung around the room on doors and chair and never dried. Clean the wall where the air con has leaked. It really looked... More

We only stayed for one night as we were on a 6 days trip from Tawau to KK. Check in was a breeze, room was basic and comfortable. There was no remote for the A/C so in the middle of the night we just switched off our unit then turn it back on in the morning. Toilet was clean just... More

My stay at Holiday Dive Inn was part of the package deal with Sipadan Scuba. The hotel is very basic but meets all the needs of a budget traveller. My room was neat with a clean bathroom.

There were not a lot of rooms available when we arrived, and I'm sure they have comfortable rooms. Ours was a cheap one for 3 persons, without any window but with three very basic beds which offered a similar experience to bed bunks. Rooms and shared bathrooms were clean so no complain for the price.

I feel compelled to write about the Holiday Dive Inn and Sipadan Scuba as I see several comments made by people which I feel are somewhat unjust. (Like the person complaining that Sipadan Scuba would not ‘lend’ their partner a wet suite to go snorkelling while he was diving... “they wanted to charge me for it”. Er…so? That is part... More
