Do choose other place to stay
Its The Destination that saves the trip, and that is God's work of art. The pristine waters of Sabah is magnificient. The Lato Lato Resort is a far cry from even passable. Towels unchanged and room uncleaned for the entire stay. If I can at all help u people out there who is interested to make a trip here , never ever take the island hopping package from this hotel. Go to the website n pick a full fledged tour agent which is im abundance. If u take the so called resort package, you will be dissapointed with its service, delays and quality is nott there at all. The boat they used to take u is also not suitable. End up going with other groups as this one charges a high price at a very low quality n service.

Perfect sea view bungalow
Lato lato resort is an very unique place to stay. Not for high maintenance people as the room and amenities is basic but the view is spectacular and value for money. All bungalow has sea view so you don’t need to worry about the view. The shower place doesn’t have hot tub but provide u bucket for shower. It is still manageable if u take shower before 6pm not too cold. Overall the staff is friendly but u need to stand for their easy-going attitude may not perfectly stick on ur scheduled time for pick up or boat departure time for island hopping so you really need to on top of this kind of organisation. Overall the staff is friendly and welcoming. The greatest thing to stay in Lato lato is you can own the quiet place for urself, it is not overcrowded resort so you can enjoy photo shooting and sun bath on the roof top of the deck with paranormal sea view. You can jump into water or scuba diving right at the boat deck so it makes u so easy to do water activities here without too much arrangement

訂此飯店前請三思(Think twice before booking this hotel)
我被迫未能入住,且無法取消。 I was forced to fail to check in and could not cancel. 這家飯店非常的糟糕,位置顯示為陸地,住址及照片為海上。然而其陸上並無接待處帶人去海上的住宿處。 This hotel is very bad, the location is shown on land, the address and photo are on the sea. However, there is no reception on land to take people to accommodation at sea. 我留言請此飯店來機場接我,然而此飯店僅傳訊息詢問人數與留宿幾晚,從此不再回覆任何訊息。 我在機場空等無人接送,即自行設法前往Semporna的碼頭,然而此飯店亦無在安排碼頭接送,無人帶你去海上住宿處。 在碼頭空等數小時,期間幾次傳送訊息告知飯店我人在碼頭,然而此飯店依然置之不理,完全任何回應。 後來請當地人撥打電話給此飯店,其方表示碼頭接人需另支付100令吉,實在非常的惡劣。 其餘海上飯店有接送,顧客無法自行到達;即便接送需另外付費,亦應當於訂房資訊揭露。此飯店既不揭露接客需另支付100令吉的資訊,又不處理客戶無法入住的困難,是否刻意所為,迫使客人接受變相加價? Other sea hotels have pick-up and drop-off, customers cannot arrive by themselves; even if the pick-up and drop-off requires additional payment, it should be disclosed in the reservation information. This hotel does not disclose the information that the customer needs to pay another RM100, nor does it deal with the difficulty of customers unable to check in. Does it deliberately force the guests to accept a disguised price increase?
