4 Stars. Not in this Universe.
Bit of a mixed bag I'm afraid. Location, at the end of a, much need of improvement, bumpy track. The place itself was just OK and needing a little TLC. Our room was spacious well furnished and comfortable with a decent balcony and a very very nice bathroom. Wonderful sea view with a lovely private beach. The staff were all friendly and helpful however this was described as a 4 star boutique hotel. The latter may be correct, but no where near 4 star. The food certainly was not close to this standard. A very limited set menu of rather poorly presented mediocre food. At our first meal we were presented, on cold plates, rare roast chicken, under cooked potatoes and cold cous cous. Our second meal at least gave us a decent steak, but then a plate of pasta in a tomato sauce with TINNED tuna. In the Maldives? I am sorry to say this was certainly not up to the standard that we were expecting, especially as we had just spent time in a 3 star resort and were expecting " a step up " not a step back.
