I've stay here with my wife for 3 nights. Overall it was great experience - watching turtle at rehabilitation centre, diving with friendly dive master around Mabul Island, island hopping including tour around 'bajau laut' village. All inclusive and the service was excellent. Their food was okay for me. For those who love seafood maybe you must find another resort... More

the Mabul Beach resort is a good option to stay for your diving. The rooms are stunning and comfy. Food is basic but tasty. The staff are friendly and effective. Scuba Junkie is doing a fantastic job to make your stay as pleasant and comfy possible. The diving is something out of this world. The dive guides are great and... More

We were lucky to have been able to stay at both the beach and water bungalow resorts(see separate review) After our Island resort stay at Lankayan Island was cancelled last minute, we phoned the resort to see if any availability on anything they had left. Fortunately they had a garden room, which we stayed in for 5 nights. The pick... More

We had the most amazing stay at the Mabul Beach Resort on Mabul Island. It was truly like staying in paradise! We were unsure about the safety of this part of Sabah but felt very safe and looked after on Mabul Island. We stayed in a dorm and it was true luxury, but still very affordable. If you are coming...

Great! I can say great about all staying. We bought diving packages with Scuba Junkie. We stayed in VIP bungalow. It was clean, big, simple and nice. Shower with hot water. A/C worked properly. No problem with electricity. So everything you may need on small island you can find there. Perfect staff! Very friendly, very helpful. They have cozy atmosphere... More

However, at 250 RM a night for a double room, I was expecting something a bit better... at least hot water in the shower! Trying to have a shower after a day's diving in cold water wasn't nice at all. The room was clean (we stayed in a fan room), very basic - no kettle or toiletries, but at least... More

First of all, make sure, if you want to dive Sipadan Island (different from Sipadan Barrier Reef), to book in advance. I booked a month and a half in advance and when I contacted Scuba Junkie at that time, they could only hold on to my permit for 3 days for me to book with them (you have a permit... More
