Great diving, but this “resort” is taking advantage of the endless flow of tourists. The value for money concept is nil here – 5 Star prices with 2 Star rooms! Old, dirtly, dilapidated bathrooms…more like a summer camp than a resort. The staff are friendly, but not if you have any problems – we had some intransigent arguments with staff about a number of issues. The grounds are nice but overcrowded and there are refugee camps on the island making a “luxury” holiday leaving a sour taste…Stay on Kapilai rather than Mabul. If you choose Mabul, stay at one of the backpacker dives (true dives…), and save a ton of money. Great diving nevertheless, but at a cost.
