Amazing location but uncomfortable stay

Location 5/5 Amazing views Facilities 5/5 They had most of the water sports and two pools ( one of them is an infinity pool) Our room 0/5 Even tho the room was cold, the bed was really uncomfortable and hot we couldnt sleep. When the mosquito nets were closed we couldn’t feel the cold but if we removed the net we would be exposed to the mosquitoes. When we spoke to the reception he just laughed in our face and said remove the net and no one had this problem before. Another note, the bathroom was outside so your exposed to bugs (crabs, lizards, beetles and ants) it’s not an issue for us but might be for other people who would need an indoor bathroom. Taps and shower head had rust and dirt on the floor. Food 2/5 For 5 nights we had the same food with slight variations and it feels like it was a high school cafeteria Staff 5/5 All smile, greet and happy to help

Stayed 5 nights in Jul 2019

4/5 Good

The island itself is the best one I have been to in the Maldives, our room was lovely as was the position it was in watching the sun go down but the cleansenss was good and I had to tell the young lad doing it several times the things he hadn’t cleaned properly or at all,the mini bar was crap and even when we asked for drinks we didn’t get them for a couple of days sometimes and had to complain to reception, the restaurant staff were very good and the food was acceptable, as I said the island itself is amazing but the people in charge of different services need to oversee their staff better, in other words better man management is needed,we never go back to the same island because we like to explore different ones but would recommend people try kihaa
