We originally booked as divers but when I failed my dive medical due to asthma, we changed to snorkelling only which was a little bit cheaper but not much, what they didn't tell us was that we as snorkellers, had no chance of getting to Sipadan. He (Steve, dive manager) was incredibly rude when we complained and basically we were told that he heard this complaint all the time and didn't care. Saying all that, the snorkelling we did do was incredible but it did not make up for the poor attitude and poor resources available at the "resort".
The food was average as were the rooms but I found most of it very clean. Most of the other staff were friendly and courteous but I would not return.
We were not alone in not getting to Sipadan, other divers did not get there while some of the bigger groups went every day, so maybe we were not paying enough!!
