My stay here was fun because of the activities, the chill in the morning at the verandah while waiting for the sea gypsies to pass and you can buy their catch of that morning, the walk around the island, you can just jump into the water when ever you want although the water is a bit trashy nevertheless you can...

I've been to Mabul 3 times. And I stayed at Scuba Jeff during my three visits. My last visit was on December 2015. I am so disappointed with the management. I wanted to highlight that living at Scuba Jeff was very pleasant because of the STAFF. The staff were super amazing and very helpful, friendly & welcoming. The only bad...

We planned to go to Sipadan from Europe, this being the reason of the whole trip. We've been keeping in touch with SCUBA JEFF's staff by mail and, once in Sabah, by...

There are many wrong things with Scuba Jeff, from the place itself to staff and food. But there are also some positive things. The sunset platform outside are to die for. It has the best sunset spot, with unique hammock. But it is so small that it is always crowded at that time. We took a package, went there 9...

Scuba Jeff call themselves "budget" yet, having spent a month in Borneo, it was the most expensive accommodation we've come across and by far the worst service and experience - so bad we left two days early. The 'staff' could not speak/pretended not to speak a word of English, save for the woman in charge - there was no sign...
