Very Disappointed service, no one cleans room

If you wish to go diving, they will get it done quickly but if you do not go diving you will be shown their blue-face
They asked me to call them once I arrive in Airport but I did make sure of coming with all information. Maybe because there was only me who would come down to Pulau Mabul as their guess. The boss told me the boat would wait for me around 2:30PM but I did arrive the Jetty of Semporna at 3:00PM by taxi from Tawau International airport. It was because of traffic jam that prevented me from arriving in time. I called so many time from Semporna to Scuba Divershome but no answer until to 6:00PM. The boss even did not say sorry for his not sending the jet-boat to pick up me. The bed-sheet and washing tower were not replaced by new one for 4 days until I left. No one clean the room or clean the garbage. No soap nor shampoo. If you do not go diving make sure not to stay over in this homestay place. Just skip it when check hotel for mabul island. No hot water and power from 6:00AM to 6:00PM.

Turtle around private jetty under starry sky

Friendly and helpful staff that don't stick on you. Very good meal considering fresh seafood and nice price. Unbelievable beautiful Mabul Island!
It's a bit messy in the room and really not much facility. That's why we can fully indulge into the natural beauty of Mabul. It would be great if they can improve sanitary condition in the room though.

simple, basic but adequate

near diving site, quite, clean air
It is simple and basic, but the facilities are adequate for divers and for those looking for quiet and simple style of living. Staff are very friendly and you will feel like at home. People staying there eat together, dive together. It is a family during your stay. Food is simple and enough to fill you up, but don't expect delicacy. You can buy 3 crabs for 10 Ringgits from nearby fisherman to enrich your meals. If you don't dive, sea breeze will caress you while you read your book.

AVOID! Spend a little more else where

Ron the dive master
I contacted staff 3 weeks prior to arrival via the special request page on the agoda web site and also on his Facebook page as there is no email address given when booking about the transfer and also about a sipadan permit. He did not reply! And therefore left at airport wondering what was happening and also with no sipadan permit for my stay. I managed to arrive eventually after taking a taxi to semporna and calling him. Once I arrived he said I didn't give him the flight info, but it is a requirement to enter the info when booking with agoda and is shown on the booking! Also as per the comment below 3 meals are NOT included! I showed him this review and he said when booking on agoda the meals are not how did this person leave a review on agoda? There is only power from 6pm to 6am therefore only fan and wifi in those hours, and the wifi is rubbish! the dive master is the only good thing about this place, he is friendly and pointed out stuff well on our dive. Also if you are not diving there is nothing to do here the public beaches are littered with rubbish and poo, resort ounces are ok.

Good location, basic facilities

nice view and people, good location, cheap
This place, as its name states, is a homestay only, not a hotel. Its facilities are basic. The room is a bit small for 2 persons, with a little desk only. The bed and the toilet is barely clean. Electricity and Wifi is limited to 6pm to 6am. It is just an ordinary home in Mabul. So if you choose this place please understand this thing first. Besides, it is a good place to enjoy the fascinating view of Mabul. People are very nice and the food is fine with fish and crab from time to time. Diving equipments are a bit old but the instructors are experienced and teach you well. In general, if you regard this place an experience to live with the locals in a paradise-like island, it is a good place to stay. If you are looking for a well-equipped place to spend a leisure vacation, perhaps you have to look for somewhere else.

very very very good hotel

hotel is located above seawater, provides snorkling, scuba diving, discover scuba diving
We’re very satisfied with the best cost performance, the room charge each night includes 3 meals a day. The boss Rossland and the other staff are very enthusiasm and nice. Every noon, fisherman will come to our hotel by boat to sell seafood. We bought very big and cheap crabs, rock lobster. Beach in Mabul island where our hotel is located is vry beautiful. The water is very clear.
