nice hotel, perfect setting, suprisingly good food

Posted Mar 13, 2016
Pros: for a 4 star hotel, the natural beauty of the grounds was enhanced by the care and attention the staff paid to maintaining them. i didnt expect this
Cons: some areas coild do with repainting / were a bit old
Location: i loved the dive trip we went on to turtle point. wish wed made time for more trips other guests said they were amazing!
so this being the first all inclusive holiday ive ever been on, i was pleasently surprised. all inclusive means buffet dinner every night- and i thought i woukd get bored of it; however they have different themes every night the barbeque night was my favourite! with barbeequed chicked serfved just away from the main resturaunt on the sand. they always had a local/traditional option or two in the main resturaunt which were quite delicious! if you fancy a change however there are lots of other options available at extra cost including private dining, water villa dining, beach barbeque with fresh fish/shellfish or even a romantic lobster dinner. there is a seperate resturaunt - cafe mass which offers an ala carte menu which is ok - and of all the bars on the island be sure to visit sunrise bar. it is the most out of the way, and so the least busy, but right on the sea, and there is a perfect breeze there always. i would reccomend that your villa is either numbered 300 upwards or 178 downwards then the beach outside your villa will be majical, and youve. no need for a daily walk to the main beach by the pool, you can just use your own bit of beach as if it were your own! we stayed in 209 and the beach here was difficult to walk on as it was littered with broken bits of coral. not that we tried, but i heard from other guests that this was were the best snorkeling was to be had, and we did see rays, and baby sharks whikst walking home along our beach.

Great environment

Posted Jan 26, 2015
Pros: Staff Environment
Cons: Food
Location: Snorkeling Diving
Stayed here for 6 nights at beach villa with my wife and 1-year old son. Everything was perfect except for the mediocre food and a bit old room AC and furnuture. Food was mediocre but the chef was great. He did everythinng possible to make our meals pleasent for us. He prepared special dishes (even including pizza only for us) for both us and our son. They tried to serve something different everyday but i think the ingredients they peurchase are average. Thats why the food could be better. Besides that it was a great experience. Snorkeling, dive center, entire staff are great. Whatever we asked from them, they fulfilled. All inclusive beer and wine was very good as well. I havent tried much liquor but good brands are available for a reasonable price.

4 night stay - lovely experience

Posted Nov 28, 2014 on Hotels
Awesome all inclusive stay - great location - whole island is the resort. Beautiful waters and beach- excellent for snorkeling. Not very luxurious overall - but good value for money. All inclusive package with beach villa. For a much more detailed review please go to trip advisor and look for either my name or this resort and I have given a detailed account.

Bedbug attact and unkind staffs

Posted Jun 14, 2014
We just came back from Maldives with full of unhappy memories.We've got hugh bedbug attact (over 100 bites). and all staffs from reception to waiters never smile and very unkind.It was very uncomfortable staying there and don't want to recommand to anyone who wants to go there.It was our 2nd trip to maldives and we were so happy with our first trip but we had to bring all our dollar bills back what we prepare for tips in this trip. There are lots of extra charges shuch as Wifi(You only can use it restaurant area with purchasing prepaid card) fresh juice(orange juice costs four dollars per cup) snorkel gears(seperate charge on each items-vest, mask,fins) And only guest rooms have airconditioner. Restaurant, Bar, Reception are opend plan. It is very hot without A/C and lots of bug all around..Their check out time is 12;00 and they set people's seaplane schedule on late afternoon. People have to empty their room at 12:oo and wait at reception area or Bar for 5-6 hours without A/C . If you want to stay in room, have to pay 125 dollars for 5 hours. I asked them to set plane schedule to morning time but they didn't .But the most worst part was staffs.

Nice beach resort

Posted May 22, 2014
Didn't accommodated for honeymooners. Didn't go that extra mile to ensure that honeymooners had the best room or facilities. They tried to accommodate for our dietary requirements however choice of food was limited

All inclusive resort on a private island

Posted Feb 3, 2014
This resort was outstanding. The facilities were nice and comfortable. The staff was amazingly friendly, always smiling and very helpful. The food was good and diversified. No need to pay double for a water villa. I personnally found more convenient to have a villa on the beach rather than on the water. The only negative comment is about the music entertainment at night which was pretty boring.

Excellent hotel, friendly staff, good food & drink

Posted Jan 11, 2014
Pros: The hotel is the whole island. You can walk from one end to the other. There are various bars and beaches. It's clean and luxurious but unstuffy
Cons: Very very small point: the seafood, surprisingly, could be a little better. The fish tended to be a little dry. But I am struggling to find anything
Location: Snorkelling, sunbathing, eating, drinking, eating, drinking, working out to work off the calories, lounging in or by the pool
This was a fantastic Christmas & New Year (2013) beach holiday. The hotel is lovely (we were in room 274 - ask for a room in the range 264 - 290 (away from the sea wall - where the sand is harder to walk on because of coral fragments and where access to the sea is down steps). We had direct access to the sea from our villa, close to where the sea plane landed, took off, and moored overnight. It added to the atmosphere of being on a remote island. The all inclusive food and drink were lovely and the service was outstanding. The staff were lovely and we spent a lot at the end in tips for the wonderful people who served our drinks, cleaned our room, swept the leaves etc. etc. I recommend upgrading to the Water Villa's for the end of your stay (we spent our last day and night in one - about £330 to upgrade and a wonderful experience). I strongly recommend this resort - I have had a number of holidays in the sun in Goa and in Nice, but this was the best. The snorkelling was excellent - many coloured fish and we saw dolphins from a distance. The temperature was hot but not absolutely unbearable. It was sunny for about 85% of the time and only one day was cloudy and rainy (but warm). We spent that day in the pool sipping beer. Food-wise, the beef and other meats were, surprisingly, better than the seafood. Have the omelette for breakfast! You will love this place and its warm welcome. When we left on the seaplane, as it moved away from shore, the staff unfurled a goodbye banner!
