The diving crew is excellent. Very smooth diving operation with very experienced guides that knows the local sites very well. Lots of guides and dive boats meaning good guest/DM/boat ratio even while the resort is full. When I was there 75% of the resort guests were Chinese and I found them quite friendly and sociable. I didn't see anyone do...

We've spent 6 days there as my second diving trip, lucky us have a day guarantee plus an extra bonus day to dive at Sipadan. The amazing sea and creatures underneath are unforgettable. The DMs are nice and instructions are easy to follow even for the new divers like us. The rooms are fairly clean and comfortable, and the electricity...

Me and my Wife went for a 3 days diving trip. Beautiful and excellent diving around Sipadan and Kapalai areas. Very helpful dive guides , esp Villy, the young boy. My Wife had some problems with the first few dives and the guides were patient and made sure she was safe and good . The resort was clean and comfortable...

We enjoyed our 5 day stay with Borneo Divers. The dive staff are really helpful and Eto our DM was superb and went out of his way to find the wildlife we wanted to see. The equipment was all in very good condition and we felt safe all the time. Back on land the accommodation was comfortable although the shower...

I just spent a week diving with Borneo Divers in Mabul, Kapalai and Sipadan, and had the time of my life. Great diving, good food and excellent service. The massage parlor is very nice, but nothing beats the great staff. Kudos to Billy, Emily and all the other div masters for the god job. I will be back soon!

The resort is okay. Wifi in the cafeteria area, not in the room. I used a sim card for wifi connection to my computer and that worked well. Saltwater showers in your room. Resort seems to be run by young people all in their 20's, which was kind of cool, but then nobody seems to take charge, and it is...

All the staff are super friendly and helpful - especially Eto, our dive instructor. Our day trip to Sipadan was hands down the best day of our whole holiday. It's a must do! We lost count of how many turtles we saw. We were also in amongst the reef sharks, jack fish tornados, bump head parrot fish and various other...

Amazing chalet and ours was the first on the beach so if pirates came we alarmed the whole resort ... we all joked with the other people. The beach was littered with rubbish from the locals but the resort cleaned it up daily and then some of the people staying at the resort decided to take live starfish and let...

Airport pick up, road and boat transfer good, friendly helpful staff. Received by helpful dive master Eto and checked into room. Frankly the room and resort are a bit of a dump. To say the room needs some updating is an understatement. The towels are also dirty. Food is, as we knew, buffet style but the quality is poor and...

This was our 2nd visit to Borneo Divers on Mabul. We were there over Christmas and had 4 days of diving, The diving was amazing, everyday we saw a lot, due to skilled and enthusiastic Dive-masters. The staff at the dive center and the resort couldn't have been nicer and couldn't do enough for us. They knew we missed family...
