Nice bungalow on the beach

Posted Jan 29, 2018
Pros: Very organized and well kept from my point of view.
Location: Unfortunately I did not do too much as all I wanted to do was relax and get away from the rat race.
First time to the Maldives and as a single traveller. Absolutely loved the resort. Everybody who worked there was fantastic. From the very first pick up point on the mainland to the end of the trip. Great place to relax and that is what I got. They have plenty of activities on offer and I hope to avail them the next time I go. Yes, I will go again. I chose this resort in part due to the feedback from other travellers and it was spot on. I went for the all-inclusive but honestly, I could have gone full board instead as I did not drink all that much. I did try both of the other restaurants on the island to take a break from the buffet and they were both very good.

Postcard views. Stunning house reef make this a great choice. Rooms were large and totally functional. Staff were helpful and accommodating. Food was plentiful and you could always find something to suit your taste. Swimming pool was wonderful and in an outstanding setting.

Honeymoon

Posted Nov 21, 2017
Pros: Food was lovely and rooms were cleaned twice per day. Aldult only section of the hotel
Cons: All inclusive, entertainment, honeymoon deals and staff treatment towards them
We stayed here as part of our honeymoon and no special effort was made by the hotel even though we had informed them. This was disappointing as other hotel went out of their way to make us feel special. The facilities were poor and extra charges apply for certain drinks and meals which i would expect from an All Inclusive package. No entertainment in the evening, mainly a DJ playing music which wasn’t great. It rained a couple of days we were there and no activities were put on by the hotel to keep guests entertained in the day.

Maldives is indeed a paradise, add to that is our very nice experience to this hotel resort.It was an unforgettable experience, we enjoyed the hotel which is very clean, all staffs are very good in taking care of their guest, we also enjoyed all the food,trying to eat all kinds of food in the buffet. It was my first experience staying in an island for 4 days; there are a lot of activities to enjoy like the sunset cruise. We enjoyed seeing a lot of fish even though we do not know how to snorkel. The place and scenery is very picturesque. Thinking of going back in the near future. Thank you for a wonderful experience.

Vilamendhoo is truly an amazing destination. This is now my second visit, and I am already planning to return. The staff are so warm and friendly, from the moment you are welcomed onto the island until you sadly have to return home. Foot ware is definitely not required ANYWHERE. Rooms are very well equipped, tea/coffee facilities, in-room safe and a very comfortable bed. You do get an open air bathroom/toilet. It is private, but you may get the occasional lizard and several ants wandering about. Also, you may hear next door - also using the facilities. It not a problem, just be aware. I chose a beach bungalow which to me is a perfect option, you can just walk 5 metres and your on the beach, another 5 metres and your paddling in the sea. The main reason I come here is for the Home Reef, there is so much variety of marine life here, and the water is nice and warm all year round. Make sure to use the water pots outside your bungalow to wash your feet before entering. Food is delicious and plentiful at all meal times at the buffet restaurants, and evenings change with themed nights, so you get to eat foods from all over the world each week. There is always the option to endulge a little more in the evening at one of the other restaurants. Wi-fi is available throughout the island except within the restaurant and is free. Regards options, it may be worth considering the Fully Inclusive option rather than the Full Board. This would include draft beers and the House spirits, as well
