Regarding the accomdation there is not that much to complain about. Good dorm, helpful staff. Sandy was a very good divemaster. The diving gear looks a bit outworn, check your gear carefully before diving, I had nod bad experiences and never heard any from other guests regarding this though. I made my trip to Sipadan and as ive heard, Uncle...
