Pros: All the stuff was very friendly and helpful in all situations. They provide many possibilities of attractions... Breakfasts and dinners were very tasty with fresh juice to every meal.
Cons: The place has a very nice yard but the rooms have windows facing to a small corridor, so you are basicaly looking into a wall. The place is also really close to a mosque, so you can hear their regular prayers very intensively...

Pros: We felt so welcome from the beginning when just arrived in port. Xilan and his friend was waiting us and helped us. They showed us where are the points of interest - beach, restaurants, shops etc. In the evening they offered us a speedboat trip to see dolphins. Accompanied by Xilan's brother - Zinaan, we arrived in a place where we saw and continuu to follow few groups of dolphins. It was a beautiful sunset in the same time. They put a traditional drum music and the dolphins was exited to jump out of water as dancing... We enjoyed the trip so much!

5.4 Okay
Pros: The location
Cons: The food was not that good compared with the last year visit, the clean of the room was 6/10
9.6 Excellent
Pros: The friendliness of the staff, the clear blue waters and the overall layout of the resort.
Cons: There could be a couple of more food options for breakfast and lunch. The resort is very nice but a bit too close to Male’s noise.
9.6 Excellent
Pros: We had the dine all around option, which we would very much recommend to take. The food in the restaurants was excellent (far beyond what we would have expected) and the option to change restaurants every night was great and ideal for some change in the daily routine (Hamakaze and Thila were amazing). We would also recommend looking up the SPA, the treatments were excellent and staff superb. Staff generally was very nice and service oriented. In summary, we had an amazing experience at that place.
Cons: The room we had was excellent in location (close to perfect), but it likely will need some overhaul soon (some material was relatively used up), this similarly applies to the gym (not really a 5 star fit).
8.5 Excellent
Pros: The resort is fantastic with a number of restaurants to select from. The food is very well labeled for those with allergies. This is a major issue for my wife when travelling and Kurumba made it very clear what she could and couldn't eat.
Cons: Everything is extremely expensive, which is pretty standard for the Maldives, but Kurumba was on the expensive side.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: The breakfast was really good. The rooms were comfortable. The bathrooms were really nice. The staff quite friendly.
Cons: The dinner buffet was disappointing. The menu was repetitive. The live counter wasn’t exactly live. Also at the Thai restaurant we ordered food that said 6 pieces in the menu but instead they kept serving only 4-5 pieces. When we asked them about it they kept giving us lame reasons.

Pros: Activities, especially snorkeling
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Great place, helpful staff, easy access from airport via ferry
9.6 Excellent
Pros: Sameer was the perfect host. Together with his son and the very friendly staff, he made our stay really special, we really felt at home! We appreciated the time they spent with us sharing their experience and helping us understanding how local people live. The guesthouse offers many activities, perfectly organized. Food is also very good. Being on an inhabited island makes you feel the Maldives in a different way!
Cons: Our room was big and comfortable, but the toilet could be renovated (water in the shower drained slowly)
9.6 Excellent
Pros: All staff went out of their way to make our stay completely amazing. On the 1st night they took my kids (8 & 12yrs) crab hunting. Then they cooked up the crabs for us. A memory they'll have forever. Thank you so much for a truly wonderful stay!!
Cons: The activities on offer cost more than other options on the island. They were exceptional however. We did the snorkeling which was brilliant.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Sameer, the owner, made sure that every minute of our stay be a special experience, a unique one. Food is worth an excellent restaurant (as well as safe and fresh), rooms are comfortable, and Sameer's boat will take you anywhere at no comparable cost. Moreover, Sameer, his son and his staff will make you feel at home, will bring a special and generous local touch to everything he does for you. Going snorkling with him is a lot of fun. Sameer really cares for his guests, and would do anything to please them. He brought a very good local band to entertain during one rainy evening. In sum, we had a really unique experience during the week we spent at the Sunrise!
9.6 Excellent
Pros: We really enjoyed our stay at the Sunrise. Sameer and his staff are professional and helpful. You can tell all your demands and they would try best to help you fulfill.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Very clean with all necessary features and family staff that is always there to help with anything you need and to guide you through your vacation on the island
Cons: Nothing really
10.0 Excellent
Pros: I can recommend Sameer and his passionated team without any doubt. The whole team is very kind and there is nothing bad to mention. The food, the service, the tours, the staff: everything was still great.
9.6 Excellent
Pros: We loved our stay at the Sunrise Huraa ! Sameer & Rishfam (I hope i'm spelling both correctly) were the best hosts we've ever had! They organized all our activities for us (a sand bank trip, a dolphin cruise, and even a private romantic dinner on the beach), and arranged for our transportation from Malé city to Huraa and back. Their Maldivian breakfast & Maldivian fried rice was my favorite thing ever! The rooms were big and comfortable and beds were made up on a daily basis. I'm honestly so happy to have chosen this guesthouse instead of going to one of the expensive resorts !
Cons: The guesthouse and staff was absolutely perfect, so nothing negative to say about that :) I do hope that someday the plastic waste will be managed better on Maldivian public islands, it's sad to see so much plastic laying around on such beautiful islands (but this statement counts for the Maldives in general, not specifically Huraa)/

10.0 Excellent
Pros: Great place... Valuable... Staff are so friendly... Excellent
8.3 Excellent
Pros: I love the place, the location and the food. We were lucky and stayed in one of the best bungalow with ocean view. Everything (bars, restaurants, fitness etc.) was nearby which we liked a lot. The food is mainly Indian but there were some European meals, too, which was good. I am amazed by the organisation of the staff from the pick up from the airport till the very end of our vacation. Our host Lenley tried to make our stay the greatest and we appreciated that. Thank you.
Cons: We choose the all inclusive offer but this did not include all the beverages. For example, bottles of mineral water are not included in the package which was very weird.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Lovely beach areas and bungalow in good location. Staff were exceptionally helpful, friendly and attentive and nothing was too much trouble . Buffet was well presented with a large selection of food- both Western and Indian with lots of fresh fruits and salads. The Lagoon Restaurant Captain Abu was exceptional as was our Customer Relations Specialist Lenlyn. Bungalows were clean and spacious.
Cons: A small thing only - range of wines by the glass at the Bar could be improved.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Amazing resort with a fantastic staff. Every staff member was so friendly and helpful. The island is so beautiful with a lot of activities to do and you have a hostess to organize everything that you want to do with a simple message by WhatsApp. A very special thanks for Lenlyn, our hostess. You’re amazing!
Cons: The only suggestion is about the environment. Would be great if the resort used paper straw instead plastic straw.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: It’s an excellent hotel. The island is a real paradise. The food was very good and staff very efficient. Lenlyn, our personal concierge, was extremely lovely and friendly. We really appreciated her attention. We recommend the Paradise Resort!!!
9.2 Excellent
Pros: We loved the location. The staff were incredibly helpful. Our host Lenlyn was always available via whatsapp which we thought was a nice touch. The staff, and the beautiful views of the ocean from our room, made our stay really enjoyable despite the negatives. We got a free upgrade for our last night to a water villa. It was a lovely touch. However we did not use it as much as we would have liked due to not having room service included and having to walk 10 minutes to the bar if you want a drink, which you cant take back to your room.
Cons: We did not like that the All Inclusive package did not include bottled water. I had an upset stomach from day 2 of my stay until the end. We also felt that the All Inclusive drinks selection was incredibly poor. We knew it would be a selection but did not realise how small the selection would be. You can have bottled coke/sprite etc but not bottled water?! The All Inclusive alcohol selection was not good. We also felt that the resort pushed to get us to buy more things with calls to our room advertising dinner discounts etc. We didnt want this on an all inclusive package. Mostly though the drinks selection in the all inclusive package and inability to get a drink in your room massively let this resort down.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: The facilities are convenient, the staff were always friendly, especially our agent Lenlyn, she took care of booking our activities and helped us with any other questions we had, the island is not so far from the airport, so it's a good cost x benefit with transfer, the restaurants and bar offer delicious food and drinks, I loved the food variety, the dessert tables were always amazing! We had a jet ski excursion, our guide Tai was just so friendly and made many pictures of us. The variety of offered excursions are also amazing. The spa was beautiful. The architecture and island design were also really well done, they thought of every details to provide you an even better experience. We stayed at the beach bungalow for few days and moved over to the water villa for another couple of days, it's a nice way to experience more of the facilities. Check in and check out were very easy and friendly. Check out time is at 12p.m. and our flight was only at 8:30 p.m, they allowed us to stay longer with our all inclusive rate, we even had lunch at the lagoon restaurant and drinks at the bar after check out time, they also allowed us to have a shower in the afternoon at the garden villa, before our departure. Overall the experience in this resort was amazing and we will definitely return one day!
Cons: I loved everything!
10.0 Excellent
Pros: The resort was a lovely little paradise The personal attention given by staff especially Lenlyn. Everyone was happy and pleasant. Our villa was lovely and comfortable.
Cons: The bar and restaurant prices were a little high but if you were all inclusive this didn't matter.

9.0 Excellent
Pros: I was really concerned prior to arriving to the resort as 80 percent of the island is undergoing renovation at the moment. The resort reassured me that it wouldn't be an issue if we stay at the overwater suites and they were true to their word: we were in paradise on our side of the island (beach, pool, bar and restaurant open..restaurant and bar next to Pasta Point also open) and were free of any indications that there was construction going on on the island. This was only visible when we took a walk around the island and also some facilities were closed, like tennis courts etc., but it didn't bother us. The overwater suite was AMAZING...I don't think you will be able to find an overwater experience that is as big as the suites here at such a "reasonable" room + all-inclusive price point (reasonable compared to other resorts that have quite outdated, modern overwater bungalows!!!). I loved that that they combined elements that made it more special (a bluetooth speaker to play your own music, a little peephole in the ground of the living room and also the catamaran net on the patio) and it was just so modern and lovely that even the most critical of voices (my husband) loved it! WE saw little nurse sharks and also manta rays swimming around the overwater suites and swam with them too...amazing! Staff also very nice and accomodating and it's nice that they have little events organized around dinner time (we had a guy who sang and played instruments during dinner...it was really nice).
Cons: There's no AC in the bathroom section of the suite so it can get pretty humid and stuffy in there. There was a large variety of food but we didn't find the taste to be overly amazing and delicious, especially at the pasta station (though all the chefs are super nice and try their best to accomodate). When you get off the boat and go to reception, the area doesn't look very luxurious so I think they could do a better job of cleaning up the rocks and stuff but maybe that's because it's undergoing renovation? It would be nice if they had bikes for guests so that we can travel easier around the island, but I heard that once renovations are completed, guests at the overwater bungalows will be provided with them. I thought that they could include more things in the all-inclusive package rather than just food. Many resorts actually include things in the AI packages, like access to non-motorized things like kayaks and snorkeling gear. Also, the mini bar inside the room is not included, which is suprising for AI (however, they do provide two bottles of complimentary water per day in the room so that's great). The AI drinks menu is also quite limited as fresh fruit juices are not included (though they do have fresh pressed juices that you can choose for breakfast). The next point is not the resort's fault, who cautioned us against already (signs are posted too): the water by the overwater suites has a very strong current at all times, so if you are not a strong swimmer (and even if you are), you must be very careful. That being said, we were just super cautious and it didn't stop us from getting into the water despite me not being a strong swimmer (we found it the best to start snorkeling from the beach and the water just carries us naturally back to the overwater suites around suite 218/219!

Lush tropical landscaped setting on an island that is 178,900 square meters totally devoted to a relaxed resort lifestyle with only 215 guest rooms.

This aural feast, complimented by an all colourful visual one, where the turquoise of the lagoon, the lush green vegetation, the pearl white beaches, azure blue sky and generous offerings of golden sunshine inspires in us the question, did heaven and earth meet?
9.2 Excellent
Pros: Good enough activities for night as well given it is an island. Diving activities and water sports and all other facilities are amazing. Courteous and helpful staff. Food is tasty. Use of tv to provide guidance and over all view on how to plan. No hassle of carrying the wallet anywhere as billing is centralized..
Cons: Rooms are little suffocating, may be a good idea to have multi floor resort which provides good view and ventilation, buffet is expensive. Food options can increase e.g variety of pizza/ pasta can increase. Provides few bicycles for people to commute if they wish to. Can't use TV to cast / see usual channels.

Pros: Everywhere on the island was clean, the accommodation, the beaches and the pool. Staff were all very attentive and helpful. My wife and I went all inclusive and it exceeded our expectations, there was a wide variety of food available at breakfast, lunch and dinner and we were impressed with the overall quality of the food. The all inclusive package may seem expensive but in our opinion it was well worth it. The beaches were quiet, the snorkelling on the house reef was truly amazing, there were always sun beds available at the pool, the sunsets were to die for, we couldn’t fault the holiday in any way.
Cons: Not a thing

Pros: Fantastic resort!! Only 15 minutes boat ride from the airport. The staff were super friendly and always helpful from arrival until our departure.

Pros: We had an excellent rest! Everything was perfect - room, staff, food, facilities, nature, options for active or relaxing rest! Everything was very clean and looks luxury. Beach also exceeded all our expectations!
8.8 Excellent
Pros: The breakfast was good, however pretty much the same each day. Would have been good to have maybe pancakes for a change but still good and plenty to eat. The bread was so nice. The staff did everything to please. The food menu for dinner changed daily and every meal was delicious. Bhuvan in the restaurant was so attentive and professional, a benchmark for the others. Abdul marikae on the beach was so friendly and made sure everyone was looked after on his spotless beach. Maria was so helpful when we required a laptop to use. Everyone was super friendly and very helpful. We will recommend to our friends. If they get a pontoon that sells alcohol on a hot afternoon there is no better choice of resort. Oh and the massages in the spa were great too. The only thing that was a problem for me was the mozzies but next time I would make sure I came armed with a good mozzie repellent. Other than that our stay was magical. Thankyou Pearl Sands for making our stay so special. It was our wedding anniversary while we were here and when we got back to our room after dinner our bed was decorated with a love heart of beautiful flowers. Thanks again from Dawn and Lloyd. Hopefully we will be back again.
Cons: Less mosquitoes
4.2 Okay
Pros: The smell inside of the bedrooms and bathrooms were pleasant.
Cons: -We had to wait 45-minutes for a pick from the airport - hotel didn’t advise that the island is in fact dry, therefore no alcohol will be served - hot water didn’t work on two separate occasions - construction sites on either side of the hotel - no hairdryer - hotel couldn’t provide snorkelling equipment because the shop was temporarily closed - food was average There is *nothing* to do
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Lovely view and courteous staff. Room was very comfortable with awesome view. Food was delicious though choice was limited, but we really enjoyed it. Great snorkeling site right at the beach. We even got to see a Manta and atleast 50-60 diff kind of fishes. They have a private beach and since there were very few people, it almost became our personal beach. The Hura Bikini beach is right next to the private beach. All the staffs including the GM was awesome. Special mention to Maria, Bhuvan, Amrita and the Rajinder. We would definitely love to come back here.
Cons: Everything was perfect. There was nothing that we didn't like.

2.9 Mediocre
Pros: Probably only the bedroom.
Cons: 1) Food: Lunch choices were minimal and offered nothing for vegetarians. Noodles were undercooked. Bread starter was stale. Not worth spending 15 USD per person on a meal. 2) Staff: There were good ones who deserve to work at better hotels with better pay. There were also people who were there just to pass the time and judge customers with their inflated sense of ego and superiority. I guess these are the people who get paid extra for mocking the eating habits of customers while they have their meal. 3) Bathroom: Whoever came up with the idea to place the bathroom in an open area with no roof, two showers diagonal to each other but transparent with no covers , should be sent to Trump Towers to design for them. I can only imagine a family booking this room and trying to get ready for the day, while the whole family showering side by side with no cover. There was a promise of a bathtub in the booking, but it was either not installed or stolen by thieves from the open bathroom. 4) Balcony: Beach View was obstructed by trees so you can’t see the full beach, but all in all a good place to chill and hangout 5) Area: The island as a whole is completely bland with no proper roads, connectivity and poor lights at night. You can’t even take a walk at ease. The staff say its safe, but all it takes is one incident and one bad person to make all the difference. I would not recommend Huraa even to my enemies. 6) Cost: Not worth paying the premium. There are a lot more cheaper options with better facilities in nearby areas and islands.

Pros: Excellent breakfast! Rooms are well decorated and organized. Beach is super clean. Received a welcome letter in the room. This is very exceptional value to us. Staffs are found very well trained.
Cons: We had to pay full amount during booking [by credit card]. Counted bank interests one month before staying. This could be more user friendly.

9.6 Excellent
Pros: Facilities, Friendliness of staff, cleanliness
Cons: Prices are in US dollars and 5 times over priced
9.2 Excellent
Pros: We stayed here for 6 nights for our honeymoon. The stay turned out to be one of the best resort experiences for us. We opted for a full board option, with all meals included, which is highly recommended as the pricing are all in USD and on a higher side, but is totally justified when you see the quality of food and the experience with which is comes. Bottled water is chargeable and is very very expensive; although with meals it is included, along with so other non alcoholic drinks (depends on your plan) Couple of important points: We stayed in an Ocean View Villa. This room option gives you the maximum room area. Water Villas are good too but we felt they are stacked very close to each other (i feel its a little overrated, after staying in Ocean Villa). Our Ocean villa was literally a seperate plot area with humongous area/real estate (lawns, pool, porch outdoor shower, personal sunbed, and COMPLETE Privacy, with no scope of anyone even glancing into your space. Go for them blindly if you are a person who needs a private vacation feels. 1. We are vegetarians. There were not many options in the breakfast or dinner buffet. So, vegetarians with a half board / breakfast only options will find themselves left with handful of dishes (which becomes a little frustrating after couple of days) 2. There is an Indian Restaurant “Masala Hut” which has amazing Indian Food; and the staff also is flexible to serve you customisations, if u request something out of their regular menu. Chef Rajesh is an amazing person who will serve amazing food. Sidesh and Siby attended us with utmost care and served us during Dinner meals 3. All rooms are fully equipped with Multi-pin plug points (Indian, US as well as UK). Our room also had a wireless charger, so no need to worry about pin converter 4.
Cons: 1. More and frequent Buggy / Caddy cars are required in the property, for shuttles. The island is quite large and it takes 15-20 mins of walking to reach the Ocean villas, from the Restaurant complex. In Sunny weather it becomes pretty exhausting. @Sheraton folks: please add this to enhance the stay, or start providing Cycles with the Villas :) 2. Limited options for Vegetarians 3. The room service does not provide cutlery in the rooms unless you have ordered food (for safety reasons), so readymade meals will be difficult to eat

Cons: Meals price is exaggerated, especially for the persons don't drink liquors

Pros: Facility and property location is good.
Cons: Water sports should be given 50% discount to increase occupancy. Usage of water sports is very very low due to very high rates.Indian veg food variety should be increased and better taste to attract Indian guests.

Pros: I stayed at Eyotwave with my family for 3 nights. Place is very beautiful and comfortable. This guesthouse is very well connected to souvenir shops, bikni beach and local shops. Wifi is also available free of charge. Special Thanks to all Himmafusi guesthouse owners for arranging superb new yer eve with delicious dinner buffet right on the beach with live performances.
Cons: Daily room cleaning should be there.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: The common area is beautiful with its sand and palms. The rooms are simple, but really cute. The breakfast is quite a lot, little different every day and absolutely delicious! A small shop is directly next to the guesthouse and also to the bikini beach it’s only a short, nice walk through the village. I also really liked the island. The people living on the island are very friendly. It’s a quite small island with only a few restaurants and also in general not too much to do, but after my opinion the island/village has a certain charm. The bikini beach is not too big, but really beautiful.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Breakfast was excellent. We also chose to eat lunch there one of the days and it was the best meal of our vacation! Accommodations were simple, but it had everything we needed. A/C worked great in the room.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Great vibe! Local island, basic accomodation, but clean and having everithing you could ask. We were here to find out more about how the local Madivian people live. You cannot experience that spending your vacation on a private island in an exclusive resort. A great experience for us (traveling with a 4 year old). From our arrival when Hardy, the owner, waited for us at the boat, to the mornings with Maldivian breakfast and evenings in the garden speaking about the history and politics of this beautiful country, we felt like visiting our family. Friendliness, located within walking distance between Jailbreak surfing beach (10min) and bikini beach (10 min) — times in minutes walking with a 4y old, so way faster if you don't stop to admire every coconut tree ;)
Cons: We loved it! We fel in love with this place and the island of Himmafushi. Maybe the City Council could extend the bikini beach, for those times when the island will have more than 30 tourists at once.

Pros: The location near to male and the airport Good price for water bungalow
Cons: Some of the staff were not professional or friendly at all it was really frustrating ! I really do not recommend this place if you can afford other resorts with the water bungalow
8.8 Excellent
Pros: Beautiful beaches, some good excursions, especially the sunset dolphin trip in which we saw many dolphins.
Cons: Some staff members could seem a bit abrupt at times.
7.5 Good
Pros: Good location. Not very far from the airport or Male. Rooms are clean spacious and face to the waters which look beautiful. Beach is very beautiful specially during sunset. Rooms are cleaned everyday. Food variety in buffet are appreciable.
Cons: Ferry from airport to the island costs 200 dollars for two which is a rip off. Bed and towels aren’t soft and comfortable. They dont provide you toothbrushes toothpaste or any other groceries for toilet so bring all yourself. The free shampoo, shower gel, conditioner provided are very low quality so better bring your own. They call it a buffet for breakfast lunch and dinner but dont expect even water or tea/coffee for free even during so called free buffets. We couldn’t get a free glass of water in any of the restaurants during our 3 days stay which feels so weird and unpleasant as a guest. The hotel can work on presenting its staff in a less money-minded way because thats what we felt everywhere in the restaurant or elsewhere. I wouldn’t recommend this place to my friends.

Pros: We enjoyed the nice beach, as it was low season it was not crowded which was perfect. We also liked the diversity of the buffet, and the food was excellent. We found the activities cheap if we compare to some other islands. The staff also arranged a room for us to shower after the check out time, which was very kind. We would like to personally thank the Head waiter Hussain MANA, he was so genuinely nice and welcoming along all our stay
Cons: The main con of this resort would be : the lack of friendliness and politeness for some of them
7.1 Good
Pros: Stunning location and lovely room. Breakfast options were awesome!
Cons: Activities provided by the hotel could have been better organised. Prices on the Island for basic items were on the insane side! Service at breakfast and dinner definitely have room for improvement. Choices for dinner were also lacking, especially if you are not a big fan of Seafood!
6.7 Good
Pros: The food was high quality with a lot of choices. Many lovely spots around the island and a large beach not crowded to have food rest. Good facilities for snorkeling. Nice excursions to do with the hotel such as sunrise dolphins, snorkeling, Night fishing.
Cons: Some staff members especially from the attendance were not smiling and sometimes you feel you annoy them especially when you have some issues. From the restaurant some waiters were very kind to us and approachable. Globally, the customer service is only ok.

Staff particularly at the food stations (Akhil, Sagar, Dipak to name a few) and the marine hub (Zaheen, Hasan, Ali) were a real pleasure to interact with. From reception to departure, it was a very pleasurable experience.

9.6 Excellent
Pros: The place was very clean and the staff was very friendly and helpful. We had a minor issue with our booking which was solved with the receptionist very quickly in a very polite manner.
Cons: It would be nice to have a quite area near the main bar perhaps like a terrace to have a drink and relax after dinner and keep away from the parties. We also wished there was a screening for sports. It was sad to miss rugby finals :(
7.5 Good
Pros: The resort is in a great location very close to the airport. It is clean and well presented. However the view of industrial Male in the distance does spoil the illusion that you have arrived in paradise.
Cons: I was only there for 3 nights so took a deluxe room. This was very small and cramped and felt like a motel room with people constantly walking along the balcony outside to access their rooms. I had to have the blinds down in day time. Reception staff are inefficient. On 3 occasions I asked for things which never turned up. 2 small bottles of water are free in the room but any more and you have to pay 4 USD a bottle which is a bit steep when the tap water is undrinkable and dehydration could be an issue in the heat.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Our friend Ziad, really nice guy, he show us he’s skills about looking after the customers... professional cleaning services, he never forget to change all the daily things, Many Thanks Ziad!!!
8.3 Excellent
Pros: Each staff member we interacted with was incredibly friendly. Service in the main restaurant was fantastic, loved the naan station. Live music and games in the evening were also pleasant. Even our housekeeper, Forhad, left us palm tree leaf origami critters in our room. It was an ideal location for a quiet couple looking for time to bask in the sun and spend time together. I also appreciate the switch away from plastic water bottles to more eco-friendly glass bottles.
Cons: I respect the right to choice, however, guests visiting the Maldives should note that it is a conservative country. Therefore topless sunbathing is very inappropriate. I'm not sure how the property handles guests when they choose to be disrespectful in favor of even tan lines, but there were a couple ladies flaunting their assets.

7.5 Good
Pros: The reception at the airport, breakfast, cleanliness.
Cons: The reception at the airport was nice, they took us to the hotel, got our luggage, allowed us to have breakfast (it was around 9:30 am the day we checked in). We had booked a full day excursion, paid together with the check in process. And then, suddenly, things became to change. They introduced us to the boat captain (a local maldivian) which explained the weather was not so good (at this time we could see the storm coming) and the excursion would not be safe, due to the rough sea and rain. we agreed with him, but the manager of the hotel didn't. Them he asked us to wait a little bit that he would find another boat. A few minutes later he asked us to jump in his car (not a van or anything near to a "official transportation") and said there was another boat living. I asked if it was safe to go, he said yes. And then we left the hotel to the harbor. Less than 3 minutes the rain poured down strongly. I asked him again if it was safe to go and the guy state so. Then, the rain became a thunderstorm and I asked him to come back to the hotel. Seems to me he wasn't giving up on the money we had already paid (140 USD each). Them he agreed, to get back. When we arrived at the hotel he returned the money and said this other boat had been cancelled too. He said that if the weather had an improvement the boat would live and he would call us, which, obviously never occurred. By this time they said the room was ready and let us in, but seems the house keeping had not prepared it yet, since there were no amenities neither toilet paper. Also, the room faced the back of the hotel and the only thing visible from the window was the back of the other building, 3 meters or less away.

Cons: The neighborhood
8.3 Excellent
Pros: The hotel is clean, tidy, the staff is really fantastic, the ocean view and the rooms are great. Also, the organization of transportation to and from the airport as well as the coordination with our resort is very accurate and professional, all praise.
Cons: What makes the impression wrong and has nothing to do with the hotel, in fact, is Hulhumale himself, which is dirty, messy, with a bunch of semi-constructed or abandoned buildings in the surrounding area. The idea of the Maldivian authorities is to make a completely new city at Hulhumale, but for now it looks like a caricature. However, compared to Male, which for me is one of the ugliest cities I've seen, here is still a better option to take a hotel on a trip to or from your resort, and I recommend this Hotel, probably the best location in Hulhumale.

Pros: The transfer was arranged without any problems and the representative had already contacted our previous hotel rep in advance. The hotel staff were very organised and were able to extend our checkout to accommodate our evening departure. We really appreciated all their help in this matter and think that made our experience at the Somerset even more enjoyable. The room is clean and comfortable, the water pressure in the shower is good. The breakfast had a small buffet selection but also an extensive menu to order hot items from. The breads and pastries were delicious, my husband maintains they was the best donuts he has ever had. We decided to have dinner at the restaurant as well, after seeing some reviews on Tripadvisor. I'm very glad we did - it was the most enjoyable curry dinner we have ever had. Aloo Gobi, Prawn Masala, and Butter Chicken - we finished every last bite. The owner also offered us complimentary desserts: carrot cake and passionfruit cheesecake. The carrot cake was dense and not too sweet. The cheesecake was light and tart with a flavorful base. We were too full to finish it all, but it was all very delicious. Highly recommend the food here!

Pros: I love the place, the location and the food. We were lucky and stayed in one of the best bungalow with ocean view. Everything (bars, restaurants, fitness etc.) was nearby which we liked a lot. The food is mainly Indian but there were some European meals, too, which was good. I am amazed by the organisation of the staff from the pick up from the airport till the very end of our vacation. Our host Lenley tried to make our stay the greatest and we appreciated that. Thank you.
Cons: We choose the all inclusive offer but this did not include all the beverages. For example, bottles of mineral water are not included in the package which was very weird.

Pros: Lovely beach areas and bungalow in good location. Staff were exceptionally helpful, friendly and attentive and nothing was too much trouble . Buffet was well presented with a large selection of food- both Western and Indian with lots of fresh fruits and salads. The Lagoon Restaurant Captain Abu was exceptional as was our Customer Relations Specialist Lenlyn. Bungalows were clean and spacious.

Pros: It’s an excellent hotel. The island is a real paradise. The food was very good and staff very efficient. Lenlyn, our personal concierge, was extremely lovely and friendly. We really appreciated her attention. We recommend the Paradise Resort!!!
9.2 Excellent
Pros: We loved the location. The staff were incredibly helpful. Our host Lenlyn was always available via whatsapp which we thought was a nice touch. The staff, and the beautiful views of the ocean from our room, made our stay really enjoyable despite the negatives. We got a free upgrade for our last night to a water villa. It was a lovely touch. However we did not use it as much as we would have liked due to not having room service included and having to walk 10 minutes to the bar if you want a drink, which you cant take back to your room.
Cons: We did not like that the All Inclusive package did not include bottled water. I had an upset stomach from day 2 of my stay until the end. We also felt that the All Inclusive drinks selection was incredibly poor. We knew it would be a selection but did not realise how small the selection would be. You can have bottled coke/sprite etc but not bottled water?! The All Inclusive alcohol selection was not good. We also felt that the resort pushed to get us to buy more things with calls to our room advertising dinner discounts etc. We didnt want this on an all inclusive package. Mostly though the drinks selection in the all inclusive package and inability to get a drink in your room massively let this resort down.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: The facilities are convenient, the staff were always friendly, especially our agent Lenlyn, she took care of booking our activities and helped us with any other questions we had, the island is not so far from the airport, so it's a good cost x benefit with transfer, the restaurants and bar offer delicious food and drinks, I loved the food variety, the dessert tables were always amazing! We had a jet ski excursion, our guide Tai was just so friendly and made many pictures of us. The variety of offered excursions are also amazing. The spa was beautiful. The architecture and island design were also really well done, they thought of every details to provide you an even better experience. We stayed at the beach bungalow for few days and moved over to the water villa for another couple of days, it's a nice way to experience more of the facilities. Check in and check out were very easy and friendly. Check out time is at 12p.m. and our flight was only at 8:30 p.m, they allowed us to stay longer with our all inclusive rate, we even had lunch at the lagoon restaurant and drinks at the bar after check out time, they also allowed us to have a shower in the afternoon at the garden villa, before our departure. Overall the experience in this resort was amazing and we will definitely return one day!
Cons: I loved everything!
