The room was big, staff was nice, bathroom so original. I recommend this place. The only disadvantage is no free Wi-Fi for all guests.

Highly recommended!”
We reached at the hotel around 11.15 A.M since our 1st flight from KL-Tawau at 6.00A.M. Me and my husband so tired after long journey from KL. So i have tried to request an early check in, and the staff is very considerate! We were checked in around 11.30 A.M. Thank you for letting us rest in the room! I love so much the environment and the concept of the hotel! Very good location, walking distance to Semporna Jetty, seafood restaurants and shops. Overall good place to stay and we will come back again next time =)

One of the best floating resort/hotel in Malaysia”
Location of this hotel is nearby to Semporna Jetty, easy access to Mabul/Kapalai/Sipadan Island. There a lots of restaurants and groceries store in walking distance. Island hopping is a must there if you go there.

Unique place on a low budget”
Place looked really nice outside, rooms not so much. We were disappointed with room. I like that it was build on the sea and you could see sparkle of the water through floor boards, but sea was very smelly time to time and you could smell it in the room. All area was full of litter, especially plastic bottles floated everywhere. When you had a shower or you used sink, water ran straight to the sea, not very ecological. Staff was helpful, restaurant big disappointment. Food wasn't very good and breakfast was running late. We went there when it was supposed to start, and in that point they were opening the restaurant, so we ordered food and drinks, half an hour later we only received hot drinks, no food. And at the same time we had to leave, so we did not get breakfast at all. It's a unique and has lots of potential, but we left quite dissatisfied. Also n the harbor, just opposite is very noisy bar, and you can here the music and singing till late.

convenience & worth the cost”
the room was comfortable, spacious, simple and clean, it's a unique floating resort with nice sea view scenery and it's near to the jetty. Booked Double Room Deluxe for 1 night for stopover before our awesome 4 islands hopping trip and we decided to extend another night to avoid fatigue after the sea activities (cancelled 1night in tawau since there's nothing much to do in tawau). overall, it was a memorable and good stay.

Everything you need and good value”
We stayed here twice both one night stays. It was located within walking distance to everything you need, a few restaurants, a supermarket, atm and the jetty. There isn't much in semporna so the hotel couldnt be better located. The staff were very friendly and we were given a 15% discount to use in the restaurant- we ️ate twice for evening and once breakfast we were super impressed. The rooms were clean, spacious.if you want a fridge, wifi or a kettle then you need to upgrade but we were happy with the double room.

Dining, location”
Go to restaurants nearby for breakfast and dinner, hotel's restaurant a bit pricey. If you dont want to walk to city centre (kfc, pharmacy, bus terminal) u can always take a ride (normal car) they'll honk when u stand/ wait on the roadside. They charge rm2 per person. The rest are awesome.

Good and affordable hotel”
Location and friendly staffs
Room was comfy with a/c and I sleep well. Location wise - town within walking distance. If you plan for islands excursion, jetty for boat ride is not far. Tho wifi was bit pricy but its per hour usage not per MB. Rubbish that afloat as mentioned by other reviewers can be unsightly at times (depending on the tides really) but it was ok for us coz we dont spend much time at the hotel. Overall good and i would stay there again.

Pleasantly Surprised”
Location, Ambience, Size
My friends and I were heading for a dive trip at Sipadan, and I booked room with Dragon Inn even though the folks at the dive center was skeptical of the quality. It was therefore a very pleasant surprise to my group when we reached the Inn. The rooms were of very good size and with all the necessary amenities. Great working condition air-con and hot shower facility. And the fact that the rooms are built on top of wooden planks off the sea means when you wake up in the morning you can see lights reflecting from the sea shining through the floor partitions. Quite beautiful. Foodwise was ok. Got 15% off meals as hotel guests. We didn't order seafood but had noodles instead. Taste was average. All in all though, very good value for money. Definitely not a 1-star.

Early wake up call”
Every morning you are sure to be woken upup by the early fisherboats incl the fumes. the staff is trained to say no at any occasion. the restaurant and breakfast is low value for money. make sure you arrange your diving trip before 8.30 AM because there are no other options after for the day. air conditioning is old and can facilitate roughly 50% of the room. value for money is low for a VIP room.

Charming floating chalets. ”
The path to the reception is lined with interesting souvenir shops. Pls be informed, there's no concierge, no valet, terrible drop off point and long travels along the jetty (covered, fortunately) to the reception. No kettle, not even thermos for hot water. We travelled with a baby and they expect me to walk 50m along the floating path at 4am to get hot water. U walked to get the iron and they demand it to be returned urself to the reception within 1 hour. Zero room service, not even a phone. Far from the main town. Stay here only for the floating chalet experience.
