Sepilok Jungle Resort, Sandakan
Perfect stay!
This place is fantastic! The rooms are spacious and beautiful, and the property is a dream come true. The staff, especially Shasha, is amazing! They are all so helpful, but he really goes above and beyond to assist the guests. The owner John has done a superb job with the place, and he is a really interesting man to talk to. After my 3 nights here, I stayed at their sister property on the Kinabatangan River, and it was also excellent. Everything about this stay was perfect. I only wish I had stayed longer!

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.

Great hotel next to OrangUtans
very close to the orangutan centre, lovely setting (felt like a jungle hotel). Restaurant had great food and lovely view. Rooms were a little dated, but clean and comfortable. Staff was friendly!
