Stayed a total of 6 days 5 nights here. 4 nights in the Fan Room and 1 night in the dorm since that was the only available option. The fan room was big enough, has 2 fans & 1 portable fan & the bathroom was clean. No room cleaning service unless you inform them. Basic but clean & well maintained. Dorm had 5 double-decker beds with 3 ceiling fans, 3 portable fans & 3 bathrooms. Very clean as the cleaners cleans the bathroom & room every day. The guests varies from young aged group to elderly ones..A perfect place for any age group.
Food was nice and its always topped up. For the $$$ that you are paying it is worth it. Breakfast at 7.00, Lunch at 1, Tea at 4, Dinner at 7. No fish dishes as fishes are our friends, says Scuba Junkies. So agree with it!
Has vegetarian option as well. Beers are available at the bar on top of the cafe. Beers from RM 8 -16. Cocktails at 18. Open from 8am till 11.30 pm. Band plays on Friday night.
Boat transfers & land transfers can be arranged during booking. There is a village right beside the Resort which you can walk around in to get souvenir and snacks & stuffs. No shops in the resort as they would like their guests to support the locals.
Diving was truly awesome. We dived in Sipadan, Mabul & Kapalai. The dive masters (I had Rob & Dave) are really friendly, experienced, amazing and willing to assist on everything.. Diving is usually in a group of 4 with 1 dive master.. Top notch equipments. All the equipments will be ready in the boat (before & after) and all you need is to grab your wetsuit, masks & weights and hop in/out the boat. Please book the Sipadan permit early as they are only allocated 7 permits a day.
I will surely recommend Scuba Junkie & Mabul Beach resort to everyone. I truly had an amazing experience there.
Ps: Please book early to avoid any disappointments as they are always fully booked.
