Customer Reviews & Ratings Star rating based on our guest reviews

"Appart from the fact that they don’t have Sipadan permits, I would strongly recommend Pom Pom Island Resort as we had the most wonderful holiday there. I remember most the professionalism of the divemasters, and the helpfulness of the resort staff. I stayed there for 4 days and then moved to Mabul island near Sipadan which is excellent for diving." , Singapore

"Pom Pom Island had everything we needed, the staff were efficient and polite, and the food was delicious. We stayed in a water villa with wonderful views of the Celebes sea. We could swim and snorkel just in front of the villas, especially at high tide. The island is small and you can walk round. We thoroughly enjoyed the snorkeling trips we had to adjacent islands." , Phuket, Thailand

"Excellent value for money. We stayed at the Beach Villa and the view was superb. The service we got was excellent and the food they provided (buffet style) was very good. We were lucky enough to stay for 3 nights at this wonderful place. But it is built in a place with amazing natural beauty. And the comforts the resort provided fully complemented it." , Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

"Prtivacy, relaxing, and paradise are the words I would use to describe Pom Pom Resort Island. The place is ideal for a family vacations and even for honeymooning. We snorkeled with sea turtles which was beautiful." , Lisboa, Portugal

"This island is like a jewel. The Garden Villa, in which we stayed, gave us excellent views of the garden. We went to Pom Pom mainly for snorkeling. There were 3 kids in our group and we opted for half-a-day snorkeling sessions. The crew was very very helpful and did all that was necessary to get things in order. Other units like the office and the restaurant also provided efficient service. The staff were so keen on providing us the best that they woke us up late at night to show the egg-laying ritual of a turtle. We watched in amazement as the turtle first dug a pit into which she eased herself, then dug an egg chamber into which she laid160 eggs, and finally covered the pit with sand. There were no security concerns since either police and guards were present everywhere, even on the boats that took us for diving and snorkeling. " , Cape Town, South Africa
