Lodgings range from seafront chalets to 6 bed dorms.prices ranging from 900 ringats for a dorm room to 3000 for a chalet.
All prices include 3 buffet meals which are basic but good as backpacker grub goes.
When i was there the majority of guests were Chinese due to their new year holiday period.
The kitchen did allow guests to buy fish,lobster+crabs from local fishermen to cook.
Apart from the more expensive,3* 4*resorts there is not much to do or visit apart from diving.
Uncle Chang did seem to have the monopoly on Sipadam dive permits as other more expensive resorts had trouble finding permits for their guests unlike Uncle Chang.
Normal 3 dive,day trips cost 300 ringats,Sipadam is 600
If you are coming to Mabul to dive Sipadam(Why else would you be here?),Uncle Chang,is the daddy
