Rooms need to be updated. There are sign of wear and tear. For honeymooners, suggest that you try SMART next door to Sipadan Water Village instead. It is more organized.
Food is boring. Nothing appetizing after a great dive. It is not delicious at all. I was eating so that I have enough energy to continue my diving activities.
There were lots of rubbish floating from the nearby illegal village. You get kids in the boat begging you for money and food. The villages would walk up to their beach front to pee and poo. The wave would wash their poo away and the current would carry to the nearby Sipadan Water Village and SMART resort. Disgusting sight.
The illegal villages would catch the Manta Ray, crabs from the sea and sell it to visitors who stay at the near by backpackers place. It is also very disturbing to watch an illegal village man chopping up 5 Murray eels to cook and feed his families.
Sabah authority should do something about all these illegals who has invaded this paradise place and does a lot of harm to the surrounding environment.
