If is not because of diving...I will rate no star at all for this place. Stayed in a long house, the only thing great is the bed, everything else is in terrible condition, no water from tap,believed due to the salt built up in the tap that caused. Toilet was dirty with yellow stains on it. One day afternoon after... More

We ended up not staying at this resort so the comment pertains only to our experience dealing with their staff in Semporna. We called last minute on the way from Maliau basin and on the phone the staff seemed really proactive. They said they could not tell us the price though and that we had to come to their office...

Recently stayed for 4D3N with my fiance for a scuba diving trip. Got a good price at the MIDE fair earlier in the year and its pretty reasonable in comparison with other options on Pom Pom Island and other surrounding islands too. The only reason I am giving this review a four out of five rating is due to the... More

I stayed at CBR for 16 nights while I completed a professional-level BSAC underwater course offered by Oceans Below out of Koh Toh, Thailand. There were 2 students, me and another woman from Australia, and two instructors, so we had one-on-one attention. My only complaint is that the time went by two fast and I wish that I could repeat...

If you are looking at this place it’s probably because you want to go to see the islands but don’t want to pay the high prices of Pom Pom island or other resorts. We stayed for 4 nights for this reason and didn’t want to leave. The chalets are nice and spacious, and of a decent standard. Some of the... More

Heading out to the island we were caught in a huge storm and found ourselves wishing the resort had more than the inadequate boat we were on - little more than a dive boat with side flaps that didn't reach all the way, leaving us drenched and cold by the time we reached the island! Staff was very welcoming though,... More

We recently stayed at CBR for 5 days 4 nights. We got a good deal from the resort at the previous dive expo (MIDE). The rooms are big, there is aircon and hot water showers. My only beef about the room is that it can get a little funky if not aired properly. Maybe an extractor fan in the toilet... More

This is definitly a diving place so don't go if you don't dive. But if you are already a diver or if it is your first experience this is the right place. Don't expect a nice hotel with facilities. This is more a guesthouse style hotel, with very simple rooms and basics facilities. But be sure that you will find... More

The accommodation is on tiny island in the Celebes sea so you practically have the place to yourself. the rooms are basic, but very clean, nicely decorated and comfortable. The food is OK - served at set times during the day in the communal area. Turtles visit very frequently to eat the sea grass so the chances of seeing and... More
