“simple food offered”

Written on: 30/04/2016 by hc168 (1 review written)

Dishes offered for lunch and supper were not much different from one meal to another. All types of food offered for breakfast were deep fried and oily, except for pasta and fresh fruit. The boat ran out of fresh fruit when it reached the third last day. No other food was offered except that the guests were allowed to make their own toasts any time; but that would take time so that a large group of hungry guests would have to wait in turn. This problem could be solved simply by offering, in… Read Full Review

Thank you for such a fantastic trip. Your team is really we organized. We stayed at Kapalai for diving. Everything from smooth transit from airport to a special anniversary gift in our room was perfect. Diving at Sipandan was fantastic with small groups and really attention to detail. Though Kapalai can eork on there food the rest was perfect and the location paradise. I would recommend your company to all of my friends!… Read Full Review

Written on: 28/04/2016 by Olivierparis (1 review written)

I like your work when i had some difficulties to choice the day of my arrival flight . You always did a quick reply. But i did´nt like the extra charges for using alone my room , because the resort was not full , a lot of rooms were not occupied, so i think these extracharges are not correct. When i talked about that at the lobby of the resort , they said me ," they did not know that" So i claim you repay me theses extracharges. Best Regards Olivier Paris… Read Full Review

Jmojiwat's Response to Olivierparis's Review

Hi,

Thank you for your valuable feedback.

We just wanted to clarify to you that prior to making your booking, in our email dated on 7th April, 2016 at 09:26 am, we mentioned that the single supplement fee is optional. However, by opting in the single supplement fee, you will have your own room (with no chance of having to share your room with another diver) and that there will be no additional fees for land and boat transfers if there are no other guests going into the resort at the same time.

On the same day (7th April, 2016 at 4:26 PM), in your reply, our understanding is that you wanted to book a room with single occupancy.

In spite of this, again we want to thank you for your valuable feedback. We will look at ways we can better communicate available options with our future customers.

We hope you had a great time diving at Sipadan just the same.

Kindest regards from Alice and the team at Asia Diving Vacation.

“Lankayan = Paradise”

Written on: 24/04/2016 by Larsonmd102 (1 review written)

Just back from 4 days/3 nights on Lankayan. Was just what the doctor ordered, couldn't have been better. Great if looking for perfect blend of a bit of activity (good varied diving and a pleasant jog down the beach as the sun goes down) and chillin' (nothing to do except relax and eat). it's 90 min speed boay journey out of Sandakan, but don't let that put you off - it's well worth it. Am looking forward to going back. thanks… Read Full Review

“Layang Layang”

Written on: 23/04/2016 by Andrew68 (1 review written)

Accommodation very basic. Half the time we had no running water and often no electricity. Diving is in groups of 12 in really difficult conditions - no way the divemaster can look after you - you have to look after yourself. No such thing ad a check dive - you are thrown straight in to 30 + in strong current so beware! Don't expect huge schools of hammerheads - you are lucky if you see them at all. Staff were absolutely lovely though. Overall Layang Layang is an interesting and unique… Read Full Review

“Nice stay, but more could be done for active non-divers”

Written on: 18/04/2016 by JurajN (1 review written)

The accommodation is OK, fully acceptable rooms with AC and fan. Catering excellent, really appreciated. Staff friendly, ready to help with resort issues. As most know, visiting Sipadan is one of the most interesting trips for any person interested in uderwater world. Small remark - it is too visible that prefereed guests are divers. If you are experienced snorkeller, you may need more than offered. The resort was not flexible enough to help us to get to best snorkelling places… Read Full Review

Staff was very nice and helpful throughout the entire process. I would recommend them and will probably use them again in the future if I go back to SE Asia. I also asked them for some contacts for other things we wanted to do on our trip and they were prompted in replying to us. Thanks… Read Full Review

“Awsome help with booking ”

Written on: 22/03/2016

For booking my diving at Layang Layang and the Dive rig in Mabul I would send emails in the evening in the Netherlands. And like a heart beat the next morning I had good services and answers to all of my questions. Also when I had troubles with the credit card payment they replied in a few minutes. So I was happy to find you people on the internet.And the two dives sites I visited where spectacular… Read Full Review

“What a great service”

Written on: 19/01/2016 by SigridHell (1 review written)

Usually we booked our diving vacation with a German tourist agency. This time they gave us a lot of trouble with our planned trip to Mabul Island (some of them did not give us an offer, some where really overpriced) By chance we found the website of Asia Diving vacation. We just asked them about an offer. From this time on we had the feeling that we are really in very professional hands. The team answered always immediately and took care about everything without that we had to ask her. As well… Read Full Review

“TIP TOP SPOT”

Written on: 12/01/2016 by darius21 (1 review written)

Excellent communication and all that was promised was delivered. Kapalai was fantastic. The dive centre was organised and the staff were friendly. I do think that more effort could be made in briefings to stress the importance of the dive sites and preserving them for the divers and generations who follow. Also, there was an assumption that everyone was confident and capable. Hmmm. The food at the resort was simple but tasty. Don't expect fancy food. The views across the sea and the soothing… Read Full Review

Very happy with my holiday in Sipadan Island in September / October 2015 and that is thanks to all the help and support given by Asian Diving Vacation. Even though it was a peak time with most accommodations full, Asian Diving Vacation managed to sort me out with great resort. Great service provided with detail paid to fulfilling needs and requirements of the customer. Thank you :)… Read Full Review

“There for us!”

Written on: 01/11/2015 by catherinehornby (1 review written)

We had one of those holidays which doesn't get off to a good start. But that's exactly when you need a great travel agent to help get your trip back on track. We missed our first flight the night before the boat departure. Even though it was late, she answered my emails and WhatsApp, radioed the boat to re-plan our connections, and was generally very supportive and reassuring. She maintained comms with us all through the next day as we made our connections and was very responsive and available… Read Full Review
