  • Older travelers

    Location so close to the orangutan sanctuary.Great little food van near the entrance which had better food than the restaraunt.

    I didnt appreciate having to pay for use of unclean swimming pool when we wanted use for the last half hour before closing and the pool appeared to be part of the resort. The restaraunt was dingy and only served beer and softdrinks. Staff were unenthusiastic and with poor hygeine ie nose picking and touching of feet.Ugh Included breakfast was small and poorly presented/ Sorry but this does sound like complaints but I think something you didnt like is a complaint.

  • Family with children

    Nice jungle atmosphere.

    That you have to pay for using the swimming pool (not much, but it is inconvenient).

  • Couple

    Good location, right at the sorc entrance. The staff are nice and smiling. The resort is quite big, with ponds, palm trees and wooden walkways, so it's a really nice walk from the room to the restaurant. The breakfast is filling and the service is prompt.

    The room was musty, with a pungent smell. The restaurant prices are higher than elsewhere in Sepilok. They had an electrical failure the night we were there, so we could'n use the air con and it got very hot.

  • Group of friends

    The setting was fab, very relaxing and lots to do around the area.

    I have no complaints,

  • Group of friends

    Fantastic location being only a short walk to the Sepilok Orangutan centre.

    Worst breakfasts I have ever eaten. No choice and the toast was dried out to the point where one could call it crouton rather than toast.

  • Older travelers

    The food prepared by the Banana Coffee is fresh, delicious and good priced! Break fast is served on the table. There are at least two choices. It is 5 minutes walk to the Sepilok Orang Utan Sanctuary and a bus from sous to the Labuk Bay Proboces Sanctuary at 11:30am. The yard set up is very nature and beautiful, out door swimming poor, fresh air, and platewalk over the water which looks like a river.

    The furnitures and bed sheets are old, but clean.

  • Couple

    Friendly & knowledgeable staff. Great location to see the Orang-utans. And fantastic value for money with a great range of accommodation from dorms to deluxe rooms. Sepilok was a great place to chill out or be sociable if you wanted to

  • Couple

    The hotel is in a jungle setting and is as close to the Sepilok Orang Utan rehabilitation centre as possible (five minutes walk). Although it is a man made area (I.E. articificial ponds and wooden walkways all around) the sounds of the jungle are there and it is a nice balance between feeling part of the rainforest, while having a few home comforts. The charge for the pool is minimal and probably goes towards its condition, which is excellent. We quite easily spent half a day relaxing by the pool. Its also very easy to book tours from here.

    It is a bit rough around the edges, but it does not claim to be a five star rainforest lodge. There was not a lot to do in the evenings.

  • Couple

    Staff is friendly, especially the receptionists that helped to arrange a privat trip and location to Sepilok Rehabilitation.

  • Group of friends

    Best thing is location. A 5 minute walk from orangutans. Able to return to hotel for lunch and rest before returning to see afternoon feeding of monkeys.

    They did not charge me a cancellation fee when I booked out a day early.

  • Single

    It was sooooo close to the Orangutan sanctuary - literally a 5 min walk away. I was here for two nights...if I was planning on staying longer then I would have stayed in the city at a better star hotel. The reception staff were wonderfully helpful. Right in the middle of the forest...can see monkeys in the forest area right outside the window. Its very serene and there is a river/lake on the property which you need to walk over to get to the restaurant. I didnt swim in the pool, but it was large and had a kiddies pool and looked well maintained. My room had airconditioning (which you really do need as it is so humid) - it worked okay.

    Bring your own towels. The ones there are like 20 years old - very thin and flimsy. The breakfast and quality of the restaurant was really thing is to BYO or walk up to the sanctuary and get a bit to eat there (food was very cheap and nice and the cafe is clean and inviting). The place is very run down - a lot of the boardwalk around the forest area is rotted so be careful where you walk. I think they are slowly fixing all of this up. There is no fridge in the room but you can get a cool drink at a great price from the restaurant.

  • Older travelers

    Did not like it at all. Very close to Orang Utan sanctuary is the only plus

    It is run down and the staff make no effort to try to maintain it over and above the is "clean" the room. No security at night (from 5.00pm until 7.30 am). Very very shabby and because of isolation forced to eat a dirty restuarant with lazy staff. Better to stop in Sandakan and takes trips out from there I think. Very dissappointing!!!

  • Older travelers


    Rooms not conducive to comfort in any shape or form.

  • Couple

    The location was great, so close to the orangutans! The rooms were basic, but nice.. nice comfy beds, nice surrounding environment. Pretty good for what you're paying for a room

    Bit of a rip off, staff not particuarly helpful, and try to make you pay as much as possible..

  • Family with children

    The setting was beautiful. the Banana cafe and resturant was very good with good food and excellent staff.
