We went as a group of 15 divers and had stayed there for 6 days /5 nights.
As a group, we enjoyed the dives and stay tremendously and were very sad when we had to leave.
Accommodation - the room was basic but clean. The bathroom was only ok and the water did smell a bit. However, it was still bearable for us. There was heater and the water pressure was strong enough.
Food - food was good overall. there is a good variety of food from western, chinese to malay food. The food was not spicy or hot. They offered bbq once a while and the sataty were particularly tasty. Only problem is that the smoke from the bbq got into the dining area and it can become rather smoky and hot there. What i like most is that they offered heated food when we were at Sipadan island. Only thing for improvement is that sometimes the breakfast items can be a bit oily.
Dives - Excellent dive masters and boatmen. Very experienced and knew exactly where to find the small and big fishes. i would definitely recommend Madil and Steven to be your dive masters. Also, we would recommend to have at least 2 days dive in Sipadan island.
Facilities - there is a swimming pool but we never use it. Why bother if there is a nice house reef just at the jetty. The house jetty was nice and they serve drinks and snacks, so that you can chillout there.
