I read lots of review and was expecting the worse. I have been really positively surprised ! Ok the room are simple but very clean, and the confort is totally ok (better than simple bungalows on the beach). After that the service was great !!! I was not diving ( pregnant) and came with two small kids, everybody took a great care of us ! And concerning the price, I think it is the best deal of the island ! you can have 10 dive over 5 days plus 4 night, everything included for the price of only the dive in Europe ! They transfer you by boat (2hours boat) and take you at the airport (40 euros if you do it by Taxi) , all of that included in the price ! And for snorkelers, the boat take you freely ! After that, free coffee and tea, and delicious cakes available at 3pm after the effort,,, A great garden for the kids, a nice beach also for the kids... Really After having visiting all the resorts on Mabul, I do think it is the best option for family with small kids.
The food was diverse and fresh and I found it really good, We had great mango the first day !! We spent 3 days in Shangrila Rasa Ria after, no fish, everything cleaner ok, but we WERE BORED !! I do think it is worse spending a few days to dive or snorkle in MABUL. After yes the island and the village is dirty and it is TRUE MALAYSIA and the resort does its best to clean up the beach and does a great job ! I definitely advise this hotel !
