Maldives getaway at a great value!
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Cinnamon Dhonveli, the reasons are many: Communication - Communication with the resort was prompt and all questions asked were timely answered. This was especially valuable when our arriving flight was delayed by four hours. We were able to get in touch with the resort right away to reschedule the airport transfer. Resort transfer - this is done via speedboat. It took 20 min to get to the resort and is considerably less expensive than seaplane. This played to our advantage when our flight was delayed. We were still able to get to the resort the same day whereas others who are transferring to other resorts via seaplane had to overnight in Male. Resort - the resort is on its own private island with stunning views and a nice sheltered beach. The island was a nice size to walk around but not too big to get lost. They offer plenty of excursions as well has having an exceptional in-house band. Room - we received a free room upgrade to a garden bungalow. It was spacious, clean and comfortable. All-inclusive - the AI was very generous on meals and drinks, great value overall Staff - the staff were absolutely incredible! They are friendly, helpful, and just superb all around, we will miss them! All things considered, Cinnamon Dhonveli was the perfect place for us to unwind and relax, the island is fully WIFI connected as well. A+++++ Highly recommended for those looking for a Maldives getaway at a great value!
