As is stated several time Spheredivers is a home stay- it is not a high end resort, you do not get private cabins but you do get world quality diving for a super cheap price. Of course the cheapness has a cost. For example a buddy team had a high-pressure hose simply snap and disintegrate while at 20m. Luckily they...

We booked the accommodation to go diving sipadan. The stay is basic, but really oké. The food is not amazing but again it's oké. The diving was really a terrible experience. We decided to do few Mabul dives before going to Sipadan. When we first checked our gear, somethings were wrong: the safety-regulator was stuck so all air was coming...

Sipadan & Mabul diving is World class - It's almost unbelievable. There are turtles on every dive, schools of Jack fish and humphead parrots surrounded with reef sharks and numerous smaller fish with beautiful colorful coral. Muck diving and walls at Mabul are also very very good - Azhar is excellent DM and Bonny finds all the interesting stuff while...

This homestay was a very good base for going to Sipadan and exploring the Mabul island and snorkelling. We didn't dive with Sphere, so only reviewing the stay there. Firstly, the food is fantastic! It is also a buffet, so you can get more. Just amazing. The accommodation is simple, very clean and considering the rest of the island, very...

The food is delicious, the staff is super friendly and helpful and the view is amazing. We didn´t dive here, but the accomodation is definetely recommended!! Would...

Good luck finding any information from this place at least bj's and uncle changs has a check in on semporna, paid spheredivers competitor to take me to the island...can't wait to see what kind of disaster spheredivers will be after this garbage. The instructions are worthless and I get its on an island with simple people but this is just...

This place is an absolute gem! Ady and the staff were all amazing, and always made us feel so welcome. They even offered us free boat rides to the pier :) The living areas over the water are stunning, and perfect for lying in the hammock and watching turtles swim by all day and night. You won't find these views,...

We spent five days staying at this wonderful homestay and diving with these folks. At first glance the property looks a bit rustic but the rough edges are more than compensated for by the wonderful things that happen while you stay there. The diving is absolutely world class. Nothing in my previous 140+ dives prepared me for the sights I'd...

With the spheredivers you stay in a wooden Building, directly over the water.... a cool thing during hot days and a amazing location to watch the sunset! The rooms are nicely decorated and serve all basic needs. You get full bord menue and the food is really good, with lots of fish, chicken and vegetables, fruits....it is really tasty and...

Underrated place, excellent staff & great hospitality. Food catered to your liking... our room was directly facing the sea... No complaints. Everything was perfect! Even though they didn't have wifi, but honestly you don't need it here. Stargazed every night. One night Mabul was raining shooting stars. AMAZING!!! Highly recommend!
