“Simple but comfy”
Reviewed 8 July 2013

Stayed at Maya Hotel for a night in May this year. It's a simple accommodation but is just nice and comfy although the air conditioning in the room I slept in was a bit warm. For 60 ringgit, you can have a lovely full-body Swedish massage at the spa, which is fabulous! They also have a door after the staircase, which requires a password to open so it's a safe place.

Stayed here for 1 night on working trip to the Sabah east coast. Hotel being recommended by a friend. It look small from the outside, but inside you have to scale 2 floors to get to your room. Room was excellent. All room comes with a balcony so you get to see the outside or smoke your cigar there. Staff were excellent, polite and friendly. There is a SPA on the 1st floor where you can get your massage (for a fee, of course).

The hotel is nearby to just everything you need. Bus terminal, Supermarkets, Banks (ATM), local market, local restaurants etc. There is also a small cafe in the hotel, from the menu, I can tell you that the price is okay-same as outside restaurants. Stays comes with breakfast ( ala carte- but okay).

With the recent incidents of the 'foreign intrusion' into the Lahad Datu Soil, one can't help thinking of their safety. However, recently, people/local here lives normally. Nothing to be afraid of. Seems like things got back to normal pace already. In fact, in late evening, if you return to the hotel, you need to go through into two secured doors. The first, the main entrance, locked, you need to get attention to get inside. The second, on 2nd floor, you need to enter the security number in the system provided, otherwise, no entry.

Will I come again if I am to visit this town again?Definitely. Strategically located, nearby to everything unlike the 'Big Hotel' in Bandar Perdana, which is far from everything. The hotel being refurbished recently, so rooms looks amazing, no old stuff inside.

Room Tip: Get a room that facing the sea, so you get a sea view. Other rooms have the 'road view', ...

Architecturally beautiful lobby/hotel. A 4 1/2 star hotel without the pretentious-ness. Rooms were great. Staff was great. I will say, as an embarrassment to myself that I was locked in the stairwell for over an hour. I was just going to go down one flight and by the time I saw the sign that said doors lock and there is no re-entry it was too late. Oh, well. That is how traveling goes.

Room Tip: Semi indoor pool. Breakfast included... FULL breakfast. Excellent advice on local restaurants.
