We had read some bad reviews before booking with Billabong but we wanted to dive Sipadan so chose them as they had the cheapest deal. We were pleasantly suprised when we arrived- the rooms are basic but nice, and the staff were very friendly. Some staff don´t speak English but there are always enough that can so its not a problem. We had a lot of fun, felt very safe and when we told them we were relatively inexperienced divers (just 2 dives since OWD) they helped us with the tank and were very patient with us for our first couple of dives. Billabong is definately a lot better than the reviews suggest for the average backpacker / traveller.
