I chose Mataking Island and in particular the Reef Dive Resort to explore the famous dive sites around Sipadan island.
The resort was top class with very private beach chalets and a top class dive center. The meals were reasonable and the service very good....More
Stayed the bungalow villa (facing the sea). Big room with nice bathroom and a Jacuzzi.
Service was okay, but the F&B could be better. Dive Centre was nice, but the DM could be better. One thing good about diving was unlimited shore dives.

The trip was bumpy on the way there and you will be accompanied by soldiers for protection as they had some issues a couple of years ago. We got three dives in easily and it was well worth it.

if you have any food restriction, you may inform this upon reservation then make clear with the restaurant staff again on arrival. the chef can prepare one special dish for you then have a look what you could have from the buffet line.
i would suggest double checking on your every meal and if you find anything suspicious you can ask for something else. I was there on a gluten-free restriction, I survived, and had fun to the max :)
