This place is fantastic value for the quality. The resort is sparkly new with spacious wooden rooms with verandas and comfy chairs. Everything is nicely finished and well-maintained. The food is great: plentiful, tasty and with plenty of vegetarian options. The only down point is the ugly Seaventures oil rig that sits off the beach and blasts out excruciating music...

The boat ride out from Semporna was a great journey in itself. it felt like escape. then when we arrived at the jetty we were walked down by some happy chaps to the reception. the weird thing is you have gone to this place to go diving and diving is never cheap so you pay a reasonable amount to do...

I am writing this from the point of view of a non-diver. My husband is a very keen diver and we often go to places where he can dive, and where I can lie on the beach and relax. As he really wanted to dive at Sipadan, we tried to find a reputable dive company for him to do that...

But with a big overhead fan, I found I often didn't use the air con at night; the fan was good enough. Good sized room with a double and single bed; not sure if all rooms are same config. Bathroom...

The accommodation here is great - the best value I would guess on Mabul Island. The chalets are clean, well appointed and comfy. The bar area is fine to hang out in, the food was fine, but never going to set the world on fire. Certainly we were happy staying here. There was some noise at night from the migrant...

The chalets are lovely. New and clean (longhouse not so much) book in early for Sipidan diving or you will miss out. Staff are really nice of as you might find out (gnarly : ) great place to stay as a backpacker or on a tighter budget. Mabul Island resort should not be confused with Scuba Junkies Backpackers in Semporna....
