"Island and resort were unspoilt, peaceful, clean and very beautiful. Accommodation was comfortable, food was good. Could improve with a few more activities (non motorised). Staff were very friendly and motivated. Hire equipment was good." - Susan Fretten, Australia ...

"Very nice accomodation on a very clean and lovely island! The food and staff were both very good. The maintenance of diving equipment was very good! The staff are cleaning every equipment for the divers very profound. The dives very nice, especially for macro although visibility was less than we expected. Security was not so good since they allow divers to dive without computer." - Inge Van Stappen, Belgium ...

"Service has been excellent, kind and very friendly staff, very good equipment (beside the wet suits, but this has not been a problem), everything right in time ready for diving, good instructions and briefing, comfortable dive boats. The dive base was perfect organized. We appreciated the small groups (max. 10 persons per boat with always 2 dive masters, only 1 boat per dive site, very relaxed diving, easy to get out and in the boat, excellent if you are not that experienced in diving. Only short boat rides not more than 10-15 minutes, 3 dives a day was great.
Lankayan resort is a very good place to relax and no-divers will have a lot of opportunities for snorkelling. So it's a good place for a family with divers and no-divers. Chalets are nice, next to the beach, friendly staff and excellent food. Recommendation: Excellent for everybody who likes easy diving, maximum 25m, small groups, no anchor only with bouy, no gloves allowed (good for the environment and marine life). Possibility to watch turtles (nesting and hatchery), good place for non-diver to relax without been bored." - Martina Fleckenstein, Germany ...

"We stayed at Sipadan Mabul Resort (SMART) and had a fantastic stay. Excellent from the point where we were picked up at the airport just after arrival, during our stay and brought back to the airport. Excellent diving, guiding, accomodation food etc." - Runar Samland, Norway ...

"Thank you for recommending SMART, we had an amazing time!! Extremely welcoming, all staff were very pleasant and friendly. The transfers went very smoothly. We were upgraded to a standalone bungalow without asking for it. Food very good. Resort beautiful. Diving amazing and dive master and crew excellent. The planning of the diving was very organised." - Claire Murphy, UK ...

"Good. Staff were friendly and knowledgeable regarding the dive sites. Equipment was well maintained and some of it was even brand new. Staff at the resort were on the whole very friendly and helpful.
The standard room at the resort was okay. It was a little small but the major problem was the windows. The windows were not glass and you either had the choice of a hinged flyscreen covering it or a wooden door. This meant that if you wanted natural light to come through you needed to use the flyscreen which would let in the hot air from outside and also noise. Also compounding this was the fact that the lights inside the room were quite dim." - Boon Lew, Australia ...

"The accommodation was fine and the dives were well planned and executed. Facilities and equipment were satisfactory although a few new O-rings on the tanks would not go amiss. I found some of the dives a bit rushed - would have enjoyed having a bit more time to just float and look about me.
The food taken to Sipadan was very disappointing. Other operators clearly provided better food for their guests. We dived 3/5 days at Sipadan which was incredibly lucky; we were delighted with this." - Victoria Pearson, UK ...
