8/10 Very good

Great value hotel.
This is a great value hotel, it’s a little tired around the edges and needs some updating, but the staff and service more than make up for this. I read some reviews about the food not being so good but we found it lovely particularly the traditional Malaysian food, who wants chicken nuggets anyway in Borneo!!! There is loads of wildlife to see in the grounds alone and lots to do in the area. We stayed 4 days and did everything we wanted as well as some downtime round the pool (which does need some updating/maintenance).

Amazing Stay. Highly Recommend
The hotel is very nice for a jungle resort and the rooms are cleaned daily. We stayed in one of the superior rooms and the A/C worked very well. The food is excellent at the hotel and they have beer and wine too. Service is amazing and we even saw monkeys on the property in the middle of the day. Pool is nice when it’s not raining and it’s an easy walk to the orangutan and sun bear sanctuaries. The wifi is also surprisingly very fast, I was getting 60-80mb on average. Definitely would recommend this place.

I don't want to go home!
This is the place to stay in Sepilok if you are after accommodation that is the closest to the local culture and nature. While the resort is definitely showing its age, out of the 3 resorts within a couple of minutes walking distance of the Orangutan and Sun Bears, this is the most down to earth. I found the adjoining resorts to be more catered to Western tastes and comforts where as SJR is more grass roots. The resort grounds are beautiful and are engulfed by the forest providing an immersive experience while not sacrificing on general comforts. Plenty of wildlife occupies the grounds with monitor lizards, snakes, geckos / skinks and a broad range of bird life seen. The age of the resort and its condition add to the natural feel and this is the only resort with a decent pool (one other resort has what I would call a wading pool). The staff keep the pool area and water remarkably clean and the pool was larger than photos may indicate. Meals at the resort cater to both local and Western cuisine and are priced very reasonably with enough variety to feed us happily for 6 nights. At the time of our stay the resort appeared to be very much impacted by the slow return to normal after COVID (Sep 2022) and the poolside Cafe was not operational however, the Banana Cafe was a a great communal area to engage with 'pet' turtles and fish and share a laugh with fellow travellers. Staff are warm and good natured and accommodating. Recommend a deluxe room with balcony.
