Sepilok Jungle Resort is perfectly located if you are visiting the Orangutan or Sunbear sanctuaries (3-5 min walk) or the Rainforest Discover Centre. The staff on reception provide a warm welcome & helped me prebook book a taxi to Sandakan Airport for the next day. I had a private room which was so luxurious! Large double bed, clean bathroom & I had breakfast included in the rate. There's also a swimming pool & the general presentation of the grounds is amazing.

It was a beautiful hotel in the middle of the jungle, the staff was kind and helpful and location was wonderful. However, the owners were not very trustworthy and I felt constantly being ripped off and taken advantage of as a solo traveler- they charged me for a lemon because I wanted lemon tea instead of normal tea. The staff, even though really kind, seemed unhappy and weren't treated with respect by the owners. Whomever stays here just be careful and don't let them take you for a ride.

It was such a great escape and also so close for us to see all the wonderful animals we wanted. Great food and friendly service. Found the beds fairly comfy and enjoyed the pool. Thank you.

Staff we're really unhelpfull and didn't really have a clue about how to get places. I asked them how to get to semporna and they didn't know I could get a bus 2.5km away and tried to say I had to a taxi to sandakan to get the bus. The laundry service was really expensive and the food and the dorm rooms we're basic. Only really good thing about this hostel was the swimming pool and the fact it's a 5 minute walk to the orangutans.

Very close to the orangutan sanctuary- an orangutan swung up to the restaurant and chilled out sitting in the restaurant for fifteen mins one night we were there. We were literally 3 feet away from it!! Staff were helpful and friendly and it was pretty cheap.
