Borneo divers resort could be great, but it is not. They have a nicer beach location than the other resorts in the area, their rooms are big, and the buildings for the bar, restaurant and dive center also have great potential. Unfortunately it doesn't seem the place has a management. Our bathroom was in terrible condition (stained floor, bad smell, not even a shower curtain so each shower turned the bathroom into a swimming pool), it looked very simple to fix if someone cared to do it. Same goes to many other aspects of the hotel, food was acceptable but many dishes were served already cold, how hard is it to correct that problem?
The diving in Sipadan (and Mabul) was great as we expected, the dive masters and boat captains did their best for a great experience. But for me the boats were missing a proper place for cameras (water tank), again something simple to provide if management cared to do it. I also need to mention that a piece of my wife's equipment (a nice dive bandana she got in Palau) went missing during the night, so their storage facility is not safe.
We would not stay there again.
