Knowledgeable staff, they know the reefs and islands very well. The food was very good and is included in the price. However, this is a backpacker's type of place. If you are not a backpacker, you most likely will be uncomfortable. Fortunately, we were backpacking it. Friendly reminders.... bring your adapter for the power and if you enjoy an evening... More

I will never forget this 3D2N trip at Seahorse Sipadan Scuba Homestay (Semporna, Tawau) because our room (Room No#4) got rat (mouse) visited us the whole night long! Seriusly, two night we never sleep well & we really cannot accepted have rat in our room. 3D2N Package RM700/person, not worth for it. Frankly, I don't think I will visit here... More

Room looked out over the ocean and we could see turtles ion the morning. Food really good and staff happy to cook up the local seafood if we purchased... More

If you are looking for a place with good dive staff and budget accommodation, then this is great. Some of the equipment could do with being updated, but all in all, the diving side is good. Having said that, they don't own the diving and, based on the accommodation alone, it's a pretty average place. The facilities were very basic... More

3 out of 4 of us were non-divers..so we decided to take PADI Open Water Dive Course in Mabul Island. At first we chose Big John Scuba, however we cancelled it due some problems and it's worth it! The staff, Midah was attended to our 'Q&A session' through email and phone very patiently..We had made deposits for RM100/pax for rooms... More
