    神秘的海岛,水很清澈,很干净,在这里住了四天三晚,感觉非常美妙,尝试了浮潜见到了神秘的海底生物。这里珊瑚很多,不愧是浮潜圣地。下次还会来!Everything is so perfect here. The people are nice also very kind. The environment here is quiet and comfortable. I will be back again with my whole family next time. So wonderful experience.

    Came here for our Advanced Open Water certification as well as to dive at The famous Sipadan Island. Our dive instructors were top class. Resort also has nice chalets and a restaurant with buffet style food. What tops it off is the Malaysian Hospitality

    The service is five star! The water is clear and many beautiful fishes! Will come again! Highly recommend Mataking island! Besides, the dive instructors are all professional and considerate. They will help you become nice divers! Cool 服务绝对是五星,所有工作人员见面都会问好并主动解答问题。海水很清楚,在离岸不远处就能看到海龟和很多好看的鱼,我会再来的!强烈推荐!希望服务更好!有更多诗巴丹名额!一定要带上蚊香和止痒的!

    There is a Celcom tower in nearby Pom Pom island so most telcos should work. In any case the wifi was decent at the resort so you may not need a sim anyway.

    You need to take a boat from Semporna for about 45 minutes. From Sepilok is quite far. Please be aware that most of the guests are Chinese and therefore food is mainly chinese.
