Seahorse Sipadan Scuba Lodge
Reviewed 27 August 2017 via mobile

When it comes to accomodation in Pulau Mabul, choosing a good hotel is crucial. It makes the difference since there are very 'not that good' places. Seahorse is a very legit place to stay. Bedrooms are clean, some with AC, and toilets are above average. It's a good place to relax. Not very crowded. It's MUCH BETTER than other hotels in the same price-range such as Uncle Chang or Billabong. We were very lucky. The down side is that food is not extremly good. However, you can buy fresh seafood every afternoon and they cook it for you. Staff is very attentive. You can book there scuba diver/ snorkel activities. I would definitely go back.

We stayed there for two Nights. We would stay longer because the guys are so cute. They took care about us and were very good organized. We had Great snorkeling trips with them. Thank you very much. We will come back when we have a PADI.

What i love about this place is their hospitality.
They are so friendly and very helpful.
You will enjoy the stay.
It offers you basic stay, not luxurious stay.
You should try snorkeling and diving. Lastly, just enjoy your stay! :-)

Loved the place.Clean room.The staff was very friendly.Was traveling solo,I felt safe.I dived with Divemasters Joe and Ben,made me feel comfortable underwater. They also have books on marine life if you want to know what you saw underwater. Dive equipment was in good condition.The food was basic yet tasty, not much variety as limited resources.On my last night there the dive masters had a little get together and played the guitar and sang (with other guest it was their last night as well). the people on the island truly know how to make their guests feel welcome.
Tip don't leave any open food in you room will attract rodents. They have power cuts during day so it isn't that bad.

Only thing I was a little disappointed was I was told on email that we would dive at Kapalai and Mabul Island,but later dived only at Mabul sites and was told for Kapalai they would need more people only then they could go to Kapalai. Would have really liked if they would kept their word. So please make sure on the day you arrive about your dive sites. Besides that Nor was accommodating with my advance payment- i was unable to make it, and let me make the payment after i arrived.

Overall great place. And friendly people.
