I had overall a nice stay at Mabul Beach Resort. The wooden bungalowe are nice.
Strange things though that you have to ask reception "if you want your room to be cleaned" (who wouldn't ?).
The main disappointment was food : when you make 3/4 dives a day, you expect better food that what is served there. Their policy is no fish/sea food (fish are friends, not food), but there is often no food either : first day, I got only omelette, rice and vegetables and watermelon. I have to say I was "starving" most of my stay there. And rice and same vegetables and fruit for each meal (so if you don't like watermelon like me, too bad).
They have a policy to only let you dive in Sipadan if you stay 3 days, which seems to be a bit abusive compared to other dive operators that seem to offer Sipadan to everyone who walks in. However, this place was good value compared to other Mabul Resorts.
Pricing of the packages is a bit strange, it is highly degressive (1 night is very expensive, the price for 2 or 3 is almost the same as for 1).More
