Cinnamon Dhonveli Maldives is a very beautiful resort. We felt really safe. Staff was friendly, respectful and helpful. Only downside was that we didn’t enjoy the sunset fishing trip apart from that we really had fun and enjoyed the buffet options. We would definitely visit again when next in Maldives.

If I could give this property 10 stars, I would!! We stayed in an overwater suite with spectacular views. The snorkeling around the island was excellent! The staff went out of there way to make our stay memorable. Thank you to Patrice, Sharwaan, Naji and Rhaid for making our stay super enjoyable. We chose to do avail of the All Inclusive and it was well worth it. The food was delicious and the drinks were fantastic. We were able to get drinks from the different bars on different parts of the island. Watching the sunset over drinks is just a dream. The resort also gave us a complimentary day use room after we checked out because our boat to the airport did not leave until 5:00pm. Thank you Patrice for hooking us up!!!

It was a nice welcoming experience but they checked me in an hour later of check in time. Staff was nice but calling the buggy to pick up wasn’t consistent in picking up our group of 12. When they didn’t come we decided to walk. Very upset that most excursion were closed due to COVID19. We couldn’t leave island without coming back to get quarantine or get another COVID19 test that’s $65. Even when we were all vaccinated. My main goal was to see shark whale or manta ray but that wasn’t permitted. The food buffet was really good. Beach was somewhat sandy but bring water shoes because some areas had broken corals. I recommend bring snorkeling gear because they will charge you which I don’t think they should because your stuck on that island. Before you leave research the resort and the activities or excursions they may have and contact them to see if your allowed to leave island. It was a beautiful experience but could’ve been more amazing if we could do excursions.
