Comfortable and Clean
Even though the rooms are a little dated they are quite spacious and comfortable, the pool is great however the chairs are quite worn. The staff are very nice and helpful. In general we found it a good value for the money.

Great location next to the jungle and very close to orangutans and sun bears. Good restaurant and swimming pool. The room TV was poor and the reception said someone would look at it but no one came. The staff a bit lazy.
David, au2 night family trip
Very good 8.0
Loved the location and the whole feeling of being surrounded by nature. Would definitely recommend it. Didn't like that the tours on your little brochure had supplements for single travellers. If the tour is going anyway why charge extra for a single person? I felt it is a total con.

Beautiful surroundings and excellent location for sepilok orangutan rehabilitation centre and sunbear centre. Unique setting in the jungle and comfortable rooms. Easy check in and friendly staff. Would definitely recommend!

Staying here was a great experience as we were surrounded by jungle with boardwalks to the cafe where we could buy inexpensive, simple meals and take our breakfast. Simple rooms that suited the environment. Serviced to a high standard each day. Very helpful staff. It was relaxed and perfect for experiencing the Sabah jungle and very close to the Sepilok orangutan rehabilitation centre and sun bear sanctuary. We had a great few days.

We love this place
This was our second visit here. In the 9 years since we were here last many additions and improvements have been made and we thoroughly enjoyed our trip again. The internet in the rooms got a little loopy, but was still acceptable. The general availability of Internet access was excellent overall, considering we are in the middle of a jungle!! A great feature is the proximity to the main attractions, Orangutan rehabilitation center, Sun Bear conservation and RDC rainforest discovery center. Excellent breakfast as well. We really love this place. The people off course are sweethearts.

Poor 2.0
dead dog feet from dining area
The place was dilapidated and completely filthy. Unbeknownst to us, the front desk closed at 6, so when we arrived for check-in we were totally lost. Ended up checking in at the restaurant thanks to the aid of our taxi driver. The worst part was while walking before breakfast, we stumbled upon a dead, almost mummified dog only feet away from the restaurant. It had obviously been there for weeks. We let staff know and they brushed it off and it seemed like they were very aware that it was. It was literally only an inch or two from the main path, and we watched staff walk by it repeatedly. It was extremely unsanitary. We checked out a day early with no refund, and were happy to lose that money if it meant not spending another night there.

This property is in a good location for getting to the orangutan and sun bear rehabilitation centers. It has an interesting lay out with wooden walkways in wooded areas but much of the wood had deteriorated and was rotten in places so you need to watch your step. Even though the property seems old and in need of maintainence the pool is great and was a welcome break after a long day of travel. The resteraunt is also outstanding (but be sure to wear insect repellant since it is outdoors). Check in was the worst. After waiting for the room to be ready I was told it was ready and tried to proceed down the hall with my luggage. The hall was completely blocked with a huge pile of laundry. I pushed enough aside to make a path to my room but found the door open and that cleaning from the last guest hadn’t yet started even though it was late afternoon. Getting into the room was a long, frustrating process and the place definitely seems run down and past its prime but over all I was glad I stayed there. Seeing a monkey on my way to the pool and hearing birds throughout my stay were really nice. I recommend this place but people considering staying here should know that neither the facilities or service are top of the line.
