This place it well worth your money and more to. We simply loved it. We stayed here for 5 days and were sad to leave because all the staff has treated us so kindly and the facilities were so nice. We stayed in a stand alone chalet with a lovely sea-view. The chalet was nice with lots of space, clean... More

If you want to dive at Sipadan this is one of the best options in my view. You stay at Mabul island which means that you have some room to maneuver around when not diving. But this is indeed a dive resort for most part and I would not bother going to Mabul if I was not diving. That said... More

way overpriced for what they offer now. food is bad, the place has become a weird mixture of hardcore divers and screaming Chinese tourists. the beaches and sea around is heavily polluted with all kinds of debris, staff is not as friendly as in the philippines. all this I am comparing to similar and way cheaper places in the Philippines....

Sipadan Mabul Resort (SMART) provided good transfer services with spacious vans and comfortable boats. Like any other destination dive resorts, we need not worry about our luggages and they were promptly delivered to door step. Dive guide stayed with us throughout the trip (16 dives in total) and did fantastic job in hunting. Dives: I was surprise that what we... More

First thing first, we were really disappointed with the boat transfer. We were grouped with other nationalities but it was made clear that Malaysians to be travelled separately from Eurasians in a much dilapidated boats. That is racial discrimination and worst, against your own people when you are paying just as much as they are paying. At the resort, the... More

Amazing diving. Very friendly staff. Nice food. Everything is taken care of for you. The dive masters and all boat crew were fantastic. It was great to know that we could go to the house reef for a swim, snorkel or dive whenever we felt like it. Three boat dives per day was great and every dive site was stunning.

Lovely Resort, we did not have the stand alone chalet as there were none available so were not guaranteed a day at Sipadan, however we ended up with 2 days at Sipadan and were offered a third but did not take up the offer as there was lots of good diving around Mabul. The resort is clean and comfortable. The... More
