I'm looking for some advice on how to choose between the accommodation on Mabul and Kapalai, and on good dive operators to book through.
We aren't particularly experienced divers (only go to 18m). We're not too fussed about the facilities where we stay as long as it is clean and the food is edible! Having said that, we're not too bothered about budget either so happy to pay for somewhere nice if it's worth it.
Also, we really want to dive at Sipadan, so how long would we need to stay in the area to have a good chance of getting there? I think we have 5 nights max available.
Many thanks for your help!
