I read review after review for this trip and am SO happy that we finally chose to stay at Sipadan Mabul Resort. Everything was fantastic. We were in one of the stand alone chalets which I would definitely recommend. It had everything you need - VERY comfy beds, toiletries, warm shower and good aircon. The food was also good. Dont expect 5 star western cuisine - but I was never left hungry that is for sure! The resort is also very clean and tehre is a pool and jacuzzi. The highlights were the amazing people - all of staff were so warm and welcoming -Jacki, Jen and Neneng were especially great - and of course SIPADAN! WOW just breathtaking. We saw loads of turtles, schools of barracuda, bumphead parrotfish and white tip reef sharks. So many fish and beautiful corals. It really is a piece of paradise and I feel so priveledged to have been there.
Absolutely no complaints - would go back there in a heartbeat.
