We went here at the beginning of our vacation and I wish I could have spent more time. We stayed in the Mabul water bungalows which are on the water. The rooms were very nice with air conditioning and a TV. There was a pool on the island as well. Dove and snorkeled Sipadan island which was the most amazing snorkeling ever. Things you only see diving you could see snorkeling here. Stay in rooms 212 or 213. They have the best views. I would just sit out on my back porch and watch the sunrise. It was like being in your own aquarium. The only downside is the food was not anything to write home about. These water bungalows are not to be missed!
