Really lovely staff, very helpful. Free breakfast (toast and tea and coffee) until 10am but you can help yourself and we were able to have hot drinks all day. The staff were helpful when booking a climb up Mount Kinabalu, and always smiling. A wonderful balcony that views into the forest with views of butterflies and sometimes monkeys. A lovely little chill out spot.
Only minus is the walls are thin and the floors, so people who are noisy are a pain but there are plenty of signs asking guests to be considerate!

Ok, so that you all know - there are some things meant to be done only in the bathroom. Its so gross when people walk around the kitchen brushing their foaming teeth, and talking with a full mouth of foam while people are eating breakfast and then spitting and rinsing in the ...
... settling back to our spots on the sand. As 4pm approached we slowly, for we still ached from the climb, and somewhat reticently, for the stay had been an enjoyable one, made our way back to the pier and home. For the girls' last night we celebrated with a bumper Indian meal. Another high quality curry put those back in the UK to shame. Fit to burst and pretty tired, we headed ...
