We've split this review into two parts, accommodation and diving: Accommodation: 3 stars: the rooms are large but best can be described as basic and very much like a hostel. There are no wardrobes, TV or fridges. The air conditioning wasn't great either, the staff were helpful and got it 'regassed' but even after that can best be described as... More

My husband, two teenage sons and I stayed at the Mabul Beach Resort and dove with Scuba Junkie. The room, food, boat transfers to Semporna, and diving are sold as a package that you purchase from Scuba Junkie Semporna. They are super-responsive and helpful as you plan your trip and will book the airport transfers for you. For us, their... More

Big plus that they do a lot of great stuff for the local community and enviroment. Make sure you book well in advance so you get to go to Sipandan... More

This was my second time diving in Sipandan, last time we stayed in Borneo Divers Mabul Island Resort with wonderful vacation, its also the reason why we wanted to come back to Sipadan... More

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
