Summer Beach Lodge
Reviewed 23 May 2014

Stayed at this lodge for 1 night on 22nd May with family and friends. The lodge is located about 12-15 mins. away from the town center, which is about RM20 by taxi. I chose it because I wanted to stay near a beach so I could go for a swim in the ocean. This place is convenient for that purpose as it is located right at the beach, just a few footsteps away from your room. Rooms are basic but kept clean and the toilet is clean with water heater. All rooms are air conditioned. Pay a bit extra for the King Size bed room and you get a bigger room with flat screen TV, wardrobe and fridge. Wifi is available and rooms come with free breakfast. Food at the cafe is good and affordable. We bought fresh crabs from a nearby hawker stall right next to the cafe and the cafe cooked it for us, very delicious and minimal charge. We had fun swimming in the ocean. Staff are friendly and helpful. I would highly recommend this place especially to those looking to relax and unwind. The only thing I was less than happy with was that one of the taxi drivers recommended by the lodge tended to charge a bit higher than the rest, try to agree on a price beforehand.

Room Tip: Pay a bit extra for the King Size bed room and you get a bigger room with flat screen TV, wardrobe a...

We spent 1 night at this lodge on "2 single bed" room. Comfy bed, towels provided, wifi is present. Toilets are in good condition, it comes with water heater.

There's a cafe in front of the rooms (closes on Monday) with beach view. A good place to hang out in the evening.

The locations is OK. Not far or not close from all the attractions.

Overall: 7/10

As I first come to that place, the receptionist is not that welcoming and a bit rude.. He never explain us about everything and we had to figure it out ourself.. If I din see the posts on their fb I also dint know there is a free breakfast..also when we want to cek out there is no one at the counter and we hv to wait and keep on calling for someone but still nobody came.. So we give up and just put the key inside the room.. We tried to call but all the num can get thru.. What I can conclude the staff there need to hv attend some training to improve their services cz if this matters keep on goin the place will surely get bad feedback and bad reputations.. It's such a nice place but poorly hv the most bad services..

Found this guesthouse through internet and the reviews were quite good. So, we give it a try and were happy with our choice. To locate the place was a bit difficult, and we tried to use google map and some how figured out that it was located behind the Labuan airport. It has 8-10 rooms only and located beside a beach, and there is no other guesthouse or hotel next to it. So, it was quiet and secluded, it is like a gem to be discovered. The room has fan, air condition, LCD TV with few channels (Astro), toilet & freeze. At night, they serving BBQ burger (some said that it is the best burger in Labuan) and I can agreed with that. Eventhough there was 1 minor mistake or confusion on the room fare, but other than that, I will stay again at this place. The best thing to do here is that wake up early for the sunrise and if the sky is clear, you can see mount Kota Kinabalu from the beach. There is a tree house also, and its a great place to hang out at night with friend, stars and moon.

Room Tip: It can get noisy at night if there is an event at the guesthouse.

nice beach, full with crab, starfish and shell. Can walk into the sea since the sea water are shallow. Staffs are friendly and burger bakar there are excellent and standard price. This place is suitable for sunrise.

This was my second visit to Papayas. I was actually the first costumer when they opened the lodge, that was couple of years ago. The lodge has improved so much during these years, everything is perfect. Especially the stuff is wonderful, helpful and relaxed. The restaurant is excellent, the burgers are best in Borneo! :)

If you're looking for some place TOO quiet and isolated to stay, this is the place to be. Unless someone is holding some kind of event of course. Even the bar/restaurant is quiet. The room rates is almost equal to those cheap hotels you'll find in the city, but you will get the beach and an abandon ship stranded near the hotel. The food is kinda poor and their beers is twice the price you'll find in town. Most of the rooms has no tv but they do have wifi, at their office, so get the room next to it if you can.
A good quiet place to stay and rest after all the shopping, drinking and partying.
