We stayed one night here in a room with shared bathroom before heading to Mabul. Contrasting with the city of Semporna, which is dirty and smells bad, this place is colorful and feels ok. The size of our room was good. The shared facilities at the upper floor were functional, but could be cleaner, and when we mentioned that one...

I stayed here after my trip to Pulau Mabul. The room is OK, the bath simple, the staff helpful. The bed was comfortable. Options for breakfast are available around the corner. The accommodation on Pulau Mabul was a little nicer.

My first time diving will never be forgotten, not just because of the beauty or how serial it is but because of the my teachers and the the people I dived with. Rachel has been one of the kindest and most understanding people I've ever met. My open water course was defiantly made a lot better by learning with her...

lovely property, very well maintained. positioned right across the sand path from their dive centre on mabul island beside a bajau village. lovely people but a little unsightly as they were not disciplined to keep their quarters and environs clean, thus reminiscent of a slum. nice beachfront though nobody would swim in the pristine turquoise waters as they were somewhat...

Loved our stay there!! We stayed in the vip room which had a TV and HBO which was great because there is literally nothing to do in semporna but dive. Dove in sibuan and mabul, we really enjoyed mabul but the island in sibuan is gorgeous. The dive shop is super organized and all the staff are friendly and really...

The people in the accommodation were lovely and made sure that we could all enjoy ourselves. The instructors were very fun loving and outgoing people who ensured we would be safe but also get to enjoy all the views of diving. Highly recommended.

Flipping awesome 5 days with Scuba Junkies! Everyone was fantastic and the diving was outstanding... turtles, sharks, Jack fish and all the little ones too, plus a turtle hatching. Extra thanks go to Ewan, Dionne, Kat, Ismail, Deano, and Lydia (never underestimate the power of a hair band!). Highly recommend these guys!

If I had read about the bedbugs before booking, I probably wouldn't have. But I didn't. I just stayed here for a few hours (Dive Lodge in Semporna) before my flight. It was perfectly good for what it is. The AC worked, the bathroom is sketchy but clean. The bed and towels were clean, as well. I really wish the...

Two days of great service and beautiful weather. Particularly good staff members were Nas, peanut and Jason. We weren't there for diving but we tried it and it was great. The divemaster we had was enthusiastic and loved his job. Thanks Nas for making our trip

As a Malaysian and knowing how irresponsible we are to the environment, I was dead set doing business with Scuba Junkie before I walk in because I heard they clean up trash. If I would have just walked in to enquire about divings they will never get my business. The Semporna Dive Shop person (skinny white guy) seems very uninterested...
