Room - clean with workable fan and aircon. Toilet has no hook or hanger to hang clothes or towel. Water pressure is weak. Knowing that the room is built in a remote island, they should hAve solve bugs issue crawling into the room. There were lots of bugs and ants creeping through doors and unlockable windows. Dive centre - simple...

We can't say anything but just say it's a piece of heaven right here. Great helpful people and good food. Fantastic diving to be had! We might have to break a long standing rule we have when travelling which is never to visit the same place twice, but this rule will be broken very soon! We want to come back...

Pom Pom Island is truly an amazing place for diving and definitely one of its kind. Putting the diving a side, the place is a real haven if you want to get away from the city buzz and just relax for a bit. By not having too many (or too few) bungalows to choose from, it’s ideal if you’re up...

Celebes Beach Resort is a glimmering pearl, located east from Semporna. Me and my dive buddy stayed here for 5days and 4nights and we really enjoyed it! This place is so calm and peaceful with marvelous surroundings, white sandy beach and crystal clear blue water. The diving is very good, rating 4/5. My scale is in comparison to Similian islands...

The big plus of this resort is that it finally gives divers possibility to stay in this island group and not fork out a fortune. The value is very good especially if you get a dive expo (e.g. MIDE) deal and get to do 3 boat dives a day + unlimited shore dives. The island is small and uncrowded making...

Celebes is simply a private and beautiful island to be on. On sunny days you get the breathtaking view of the shades of the sea. Diving here is another amazing experience as the you dive with dedicated divemasters and knowledgeable instructors.

Part of me doesn't want to write this review as I don't want the secret to be let out of the bag! We were there in August and had an amazing time - if you want to eat, dive, rest and dive some more this is the place to go. Great diving, friendly atmosphere and your own slice of paradise....
