I've been emailing a few other resorts around mabul and kapalai prior to my holiday.It was so hard at first because some other resorts they just refused to get us(me,my husband and 8yo daughter) permits to Sipadan because we are not divers.But luckily i found Scuba Junkie,thanks to Rohan who answered all my emails promptly and arranged everything for us including the permits to Sipadan.He asked me the flight details and he came out with everything perfectly...the itineraries,rooms,permits,snorkeling trips,transfers....everything...;D
The first two nights we stayed in an a/c room.It was spacious with one queen bed and a single bed.The room was cozy,clean and comfortable.My daughter really loved the hammock on the balcony.Every time after our snorkeling trips,she will sit there,munching on potato chips before she went inside to clean herself..The last two nights we had to spend in a fan room,although they provide us with 3 units of fan,i still think that of course a/c is really a necessary as the weather was hot and humid.
They served the food buffet style and are plenty for everyone.The food quality was just ok and they dont serve any seafood.You can have free flow drinking water and coffee/ tea all day long.My daughter is a picky eater.She only eat plain rice and ommelette almost all the time,and the kitchen staffs were so kind and helpful,they prepared that for her and even packed those for us on the day we went to Sipadan.
Everyone was really helpful.They make our stay memorable by being so nice and warm.Special thanks to Wan,Catlyn,Syed, who made our visit to Sipadan as a perfect and satisfying experince.Bensar,Jordan,Lydia and all others,thank you for being so fun and assist us on snorkeling trips.Andy,my husbands DSC instructor,thank you so much because you are the person that make him hooked with this addiction (he is coming back to have his scuba license with you soon..;p)Our snorkeling trips were all perfect to various spots on the island.My daughter,with all the help from the instructors was so confident now swimming freely in the sea.I really cant say thank you enough for everyone that put extra effort in making our stay enjoyable.
So,yes definitely we will be coming back soon...Thank you Scuba Junkie..
