"My boyfriend and I went to Pulau Mabul and Sipadan because they are two of the top diving sites on Earth, but we had an awesome time at this resort as well. We both agree that the Borneo Divers Mabul Resort is likely the best place to stay if you are visiting the Sipadan area. The staff were sweet and professional and the food was fresh and yummy. We had a roomy chalet with a comfortable bed that was set amongst lovely gardens. We especially enjoyed lounging in the swimming pool between dives." , London, UK

"Sipadan Island is a paradise for divers with an amazing amount of marine life. I feel very lucky that I was able to spend three days diving there. I’m an avid diver and have been to dive sites all over the world. In my opinion, nothing compares to Sipadan. The coral reef is pristine and has brilliant colors and is alive with a huge variety of tropical fish. I saw the huge barracuda tornado, white-tip sharks and enormous schools of jackfish to name a few. I even spotted a whaleshark!" , Shanghai, China

"I was so happy with my stay at this resort. It is located conveniently near to Sipadan and from Semporna to Mabul it is a quick half-hour boat ride. Anyone planning a dive at Sipadan should consider it. My chalet was ideal. The bed was comfy, the bathroom was nice and I had both air conditioning and a fan. There is a swimming pool at the resort as well as a lovely area by the beach to chill out at. I liked the buffet very much. There was a nice blend of European and Asian food which was all delicious and there was plenty of it. But more than anything, it was the staff that really made my experience amazing." , Los Angeles, USA
