Food was excellent, especially fish curry and pancakes for breakfast. Room was clean, very cosy bathroom. The staff was great! Very friendly and communicative. We were also diving with them and they certainly... More

Stayed here for 3 nights. It's a basic place but comfortable enough. All the staffs are friendly. Good food. The dive masters are very well experienced. Definitely going to come here again and would recommend this place to you guys. P/s: Soon, every room will be equipped with an air-conditioner!

Seahorse provides full board accommodation and operates scuba dives and snorkel trips around Mabul. Like for half a dozen other operators, the facilities lie on the southwest side of the island and are made of wood, standing on poles above the water.

Stayed in June 2015, the rooms furthest to the water are the best, ask for those (the view). The staff of the place feel like a happy family and are very very welcoming!
