I really enjoyed my experience with scuba junkies. I stayed for 4 nights in the dormitory. Due to a cancelled flight, i had to rearrange my dates at the last minute, and they were extremely helpful and accomodating. It was pretty warm in there but the fans were ok. The food was overall good but gets a little repetitive. When...

I did not have the chance to stay in this resort but I did 4 days total 12 dives with them. All the dive masters I encounter were all very professional. The diving schedule was well organized from the start to finish each day. Even if you stay in Semporna , you should still choose scuba junkie for their well...

Resort was beautiful, rooms were very clean, food was good. They serve cake that is simply to die for, all sorts of different flavors, AMAZING!!! The staff was extremely friendly. We saw countless turtles and reef sharks, along with eagle rays, barracuda, thousands of Jack fish, and we even spotted a whale shark from the boat! Request Afat, Eman, and...

Scuba junkie is just like many reviewers said...very well organised. The DMs were all very professional, knowledgeable and friendly. The dive sites are incredible and Sipidan has probably ruined my enjoyment of all future dives as I am sure i can never top it. The food is limited to a couple of choices which was ok since we were there...

Stayed at the resort as part of a 5 day Mabul/Sipadan dive trip in the dormitory. Really enjoyed my stay! I have never done the group style dining before but it ended up as a lot of fun. There is always tea, coffee, and water available, and vegetarian options at meals. The dorms were clean with four bathrooms per cabin...

A fantastic destination with fabulous services. Everything has been thought of by the crew that run this dive resort. A great spot to dive, snorkel and relax. While a military presence is certainly evident we felt completely safe as a family with young children at this resort. Brilliant one on one tuition for our kids learning to dive for the...

We stayed here the end of June 4D/3N and had a terrific time. The staff was so friendly and nice - Steve was really helpful when we had to switch some things around. The food was good - buffets style - and coffee/tea/cake between dives was my favorite. Diving was really good - Sipadan was amazing though we had poor...

My sisters and I had a fantastic experience with almost everyone we encountered on the Scuba Junkie team. It is simply a top-notch enterprise and that is in large part due to their excellent staff. Every DM that took care of us was clearly passionate about a love of the ocean, its creatures, and the environment. We enjoyed having a...
