I heard about Seaventures from a friend who had stayed in 2009.
The staff were so friendly that I didn't really want to leave.
The food on the rig was glorious, I wasn't so impressed with breakfast on Sipadan.
The rooms were basic but clean, comfortable and air-conditioned.
The diving at Sipadan and Mabul was awesome. There was plenty to see on the house reef too although the vis wasn't great due to the weather at the time we were there.
We had some entertainment one night in the form of a live band, various members of staff took turns and looked to be thoroughly enjoying themselves.
We had a great time and wouldn't hesitate to go back.
