I rarely write reviews, but feel that my experience in Mabul was disappointing and I think the management should recognize it. It had been my intention for the last three years to come to the Malaysian Borneo and undergo the PADI open dive course. I originally arranged it with

Mabul Resort is an average resort with some boring food. But if you purpose is to have a good place to dive this is the one. I signed up my AOW course in this 5d 4n stay with one day permit of Sipadan dive. I've been to a few dive trips before this, this dive shop is definitely

If you love diving you will love this place. Great atmosphere and great food. Dive instructors (particularly those who live on the island) went the extra mile to make sure you see everything, record everything afterwards, and have an incredible experience. Sadly there is still

Is there hair dryer & mini fridge inside deluxe air con room?
No. The rooms are clean and very basic. You should ask if they can make a hair dryer available.

Hi there. Go to Mabul yes, but if you did not pre-book your Sipadan permit it IS possible to still dive in Sipadan by getting a permit on the spot. Unfortunately, Scuba Junkie is not the best option to provide a Sipadan permit for walk ins because they ARE a popular dive shop *however* they do not have more permits than other dive operators. Hence, the number of divers:permit ratio is not the best - I booked my dives with them 2 months in advance. From talking with locals, these dive operators were able to provide Sipadan diving permits for walk ins: - Seaventures Dive Rig (needs a minimum number of days diving with them) - Borneo Speedy Dive Hope this helps.

I would highly recommend the air conditioning. It is much more manageable and comfortable after diving all day. You don't want your body to be stressed diving because you didn't sleep well -- if you're on the fence -- just go with the AC.

Si estuve en Abril y tuve que pagar el total de la reserva, no tuve ningún problema y la experiencia en Mabul y sobre todo Sipadan fue fantástica. Muy recomendable tanto el sitio como la empresa.

"The A/C rooms are worth the extra cost!"
"I would book a room with A/C, just because it's still really hot atnight."
"The Bungalows are beautiful and very large and a good bet if you want a bit of luxury on your dive trip."
"defintely stay in a private room as you get the best position on the island and room to hang out all your wet dive gear"
"Doorms are fine at the right side as you are away from the roosters from the vlilage"
