The place is really nice. We really enjoyed the place. Of course, you don't expect a 5 stars resort but it was clean and fresh water.. The food was amazingly good and there was a lot!! No complaint about the accomodation.
About diving that's a different story. I had my own equipment so I cannot say about their gears. But the diving staff is unprofessional. No Briefing, no checks,... They seem unaware about the idea of safety. And the worst thing for me, was that they don't care!!! I came to Mabul because that's the best place in the world for muck diving. But never, they will try to show you something... Only the obvious thing ( frogfish, nudibranchs,...) and really you can find them alone. I wanted to see the small creatures but the guides go too fast....
Anyway, If you don't have too much money and you re quite a good diver, you can go with them. But if you re a beginner, it can be dangerous...
Fortunately, the dives are really amazing and you have a good experience but only because of the marine life.
PS: try to buy a fish book and interact with your divers about the crazy marine life you have there
