Great location
Clean rooms and bathrooms with good aircon and hot water. Grounds were pretty with bird life. Food at the restaraunt was okay. Within walking distance to Oranguatan and Sun Bear centers as well as the rain forest discovery center. Staff was friendly.

Hot water heater did not work. Noisy with student groups.

Overpriced but close to where people want to go. Wifi doesn't work well (which other people have already said) Breakfast is similar to other places, their fuller menu for lunch/dinner is actually decent though, and not too expensive.

Not a Jungle Resort!
Stayed at Sepilok Jungle Resort for it's proximity to the Sepilok Orangutan Rehabilitation Center. Accommodations were OK but not up to its reputation on de Luxe room was musty and electricity kept going off--when asleep the aircon would go off and woke up in jungle humidity. Solution was to reset aircon electricity if one was awake or too sweaty. Food was ok but too expensive compared to nearby restaurants or lodges. Also, transportation very expensive. Best feature of SJR was it is 5-minute walk to Orangutan Center.

Lovely place right near the orangutan sanctuary
We picked here due to how close it was to Sepilok Orangutan sanctuary and it didn't disappoint, less than a 5 minute walk away. Whilst parts were a little run down and the rooms were on the basic side it had everything you needed and the service was very good. The pool area is lovely and great to cool down in. The food in the restaurant was very good and good value. If you're staying a few days then try eating at Mama Watts which is on the way to the Orangutans, big portions, delicious food and very cheap.
