We were lucky to have been able to stay at both the beach and water bungalow resorts(see separate review) After our Island resort stay at Lankayan Island was cancelled last minute, we phoned the resort to see if any availability on anything they had left. Fortunately they had a garden room, which we stayed in for 5 nights. The pick...

We had the most amazing stay at the Mabul Beach Resort on Mabul Island. It was truly like staying in paradise! We were unsure about the safety of this part of Sabah but felt very safe and looked after on Mabul Island. We stayed in a dorm and it was true luxury, but still very affordable. If you are coming...

Great! I can say great about all staying. We bought diving packages with Scuba Junkie. We stayed in VIP bungalow. It was clean, big, simple and nice. Shower with hot water. A/C worked properly. No problem with electricity. So everything you may need on small island you can find there. Perfect staff! Very friendly, very helpful. They have cozy atmosphere...

We stayed here during the last week of our honeymoon and I put hours of research into looking for somewhere nice but affordable. We were delighted with this hotel - the rooms, location and staff are fantastic. The food was great too - we were used to buffet style after 5 weeks travelling but you do have queue here as...

Every once in a while you stumble over these amazing places in the world while traveling. Mabul Beach Resort is one of them. I spent a good two weeks here with one of my closest friends on our divetravels. The value you get here for your money is fantastic. The rooms are big, luxurious and always very clean. They have...

However, at 250 RM a night for a double room, I was expecting something a bit better... at least hot water in the shower! Trying to have a shower after a day's diving in cold water wasn't nice at all. The room was clean (we stayed in a fan room), very basic - no kettle or toiletries, but at least...

First of all, make sure, if you want to dive Sipadan Island (different from Sipadan Barrier Reef), to book in advance. I booked a month and a half in advance and when I contacted Scuba Junkie at that time, they could only hold on to my permit for 3 days for me to book with them (you have a permit...

I stayed at MBR for 4 days while also diving with Scuba Junkies. Since I extended my trip I spent one night in the dorm and 3 nights in the deluxe aircon room. Everythign was coordinated by SJ and went seamlessly from the second I arrived in Semporna. Deluxe Aircon room: fantastic large room with its own balcony. The balcony...

We stayed four nights in the basic fan room, which was absolutely luxury for us backpacking on a budget. Yes the accommodation is bit pricey but compared to other places on the island and the quality of everything (food, room, cleanliness, staff) it's well worth it. Would definitely stay there again.
