I spent 6 days on Kapalai Island in February. We had a wonderful time. Did loads of diving and the guides (Wendy & Jeff) where great. On the day that we were scheduled to go to Mabul for a second time, we asked if it was possible to go to Siamil island instead. The guides arranged fuel for the boat and took us there. They're very flexible. Every evening dinner was a party and even more so on the BBQ night. We had great fun watching marine life from our bungalow and laughed a lot when a boat of Japanese arrived to snorkel (without them being able to swim). It is a great place for divers and they still have plenty to do for non divers. The only downside was the screaming of the children when we needed to sleep after 4 dives on Pulau Sipadan. Parents: teach your children to behave if you bring them. Other people want to enjoy the peace and quiet of this magical place.
