Cons: The prices are extremely exaggerated
8.0 Excellent
Pros: Quick in communication. Preparing the snorkeling kit before we arrive. Awesome welcoming and Mr. Gasim -the butler is very nice and friendly, he always smiles, I love it! Under sea restaurant has very beautiful view and the food is delicious!
Cons: The villa we stay is not as expected. The door curtain has a dirty on it and the minor-table is stain. We are unsatisfied as it. The wave here is strong so it make a little difficult to do a snorkeling. It makes me dizzy then.

Pros: Loved it all, our water villa with private pool was perfect, the staff were fantastic, nothing was too much trouble. The food, sensational and plentiful. We had the the All inclusive package which is well worth it, the alcoholic drinks included made it very good value.
Cons: Nothing
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Beautiful beach, nice room, the house reefs have a lot of beautiful fishes, and the 5.8 undersea restaurant is just amazing. Most staff are super friendly, and our host Reiko is wonderful. Already recommended to my friends, and Hurawalhi will be the first on the list when next time we come to Maldives for holidays
Cons: Only one thing really bothered me and my husband. We booked dinner at 5.8 undersea restaurant, and arrived very early to make sure we can take a couple’s photo when the restaurant is empty. Our host Reico was very helpful, she communicated with the restaurant staff about our request, and accompanied us to the restaurant. When we were standing in the middle of restaurant and our host helped to take photo for us, another couple arrived, and they nicely waited at the door for us to finish the photo. Unbelievably, the staff of the restaurant walked straight into the photo, to pull chairs out for the other couple, and stood just behind us for quite a while waiting for the other couple to sit down, like we were invisible to him. I feel like not welcomed at all. That staff really gave no respect to us and ruined a night supposed to be perfect.

Pros: I love the views, the pool and the beach! The staffs are nice and helpful. Specially Reiko and Mondy ❤️❤️ They took good care of us
Cons: The weather changes really fast, be prepared for the weather.

Pros: Came in for 3 nights! And I would say it’s the best customer service I’ve ever received. Hana was my host and she did superb! She found out it was my birthday and set a planned schedule to make good use of our time. She also sent surprise cakes and bed layouts for me! It was such an amazing time there. Plus the all inclusive package I and my partner went for was top notch. We didn’t have to pay for anything except the extra water activities which weren’t included in the package. The 5.8 restaurant was also very beautiful, and the food presentation was on point. However, it was a little bit on the pricey side. Above all, I would highly recommend this resort. The overall customer service and friendliness from the staffs were amazing. Food was amazing. Rooms were amazing. Definitely coming back!

Pros: View from the room / staff / food / all inclusive products / overall service and experience

10.0 Excellent
Pros: The best view The infinity pool was a great gift for my BD which I had in there The resort’s staff are so so helpful Before even my arrival I felt it Fast response to my emails Well organized When I arrived in Male airport the staff immediately was welcoming me, arranging for my transfer to the island in a way that I feel that I was dreaming, very luxuries way. In the island I felt that I am in heaven +point : Resort is having a mosque Adult Island no kids for a quite vacation 5.8 restaurant is a lovely place to celebrate ur special occasion Mr. Hussam, Mr.Anif were my best best organizer for my trip there
Cons: Unfortunately, I have to mention it although, I don't want to mention it as -ve points The sound of the plane does not suit virgin nature, but the problem the island is far from the main airport The edge of the island in so parts are occupied with services which do not allow us to walk at the edge + it makes it to some point as a maze. The alignment of the overwater Villa is a bit not having full privacy, where if was in a circular alignment it will allow more privacy The sides of the villa from the poolside is not super private u can see through the next pool ( although our neighbor was all respective for the privacy )

10.0 Excellent
Pros: Such a beautiful place, so friendly and helpful staff, very good quality of food and drinks. Everything is very well organized to make guests feel comfortable. We really loved our stay at Robinson Club Noonu and would definitely want to return there some day.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: It took me close to 40 days to decide which place to stay in Maldives considering there are so many properties but trust me i made a right decision and it was all worth the time i invested in choosing 'ROBINSON CLUB NOONU'. Me and my wife stayed here from 4th - 7th June 2018 its The best place in terms of everything, right from our arrival at the malé airport where we were guided by Robinson staff member for further 40 minutes travel via small 48 seater flight and then again a 30 minutes speed boat ride (we chose speed boat instead of sea plane because this is more fun trust me). Now we had reached the resort where we were greeted by the resorts General Manager Mr.Adam (ever smiling guy) and other courteous staff members with a glass of champagne, few snacking and BIG SMILES :) We stayed at the Water Villa room 2019, (like the year number which is little ahead of its time the room is as well! Its best compared to most of the other resorts in Maldives) I must tell you the view, the room, the facilities inside the room with a private swimming pool was more than i could have asked for to surprise my wife (it was all worth to see her smile). Though this was our first international trip after 6 months of marriage (these guys at Robinson made it even more special by sending us a Champagne bottle, a happy honeymoon note which wasn't expected but they did it and made us feel extra special and made our stay even more beautiful :) Food was great at the restaurant all through out our stay. The Bar was perfect for evenings. The weather was amazing. The walkway to the room over the clear blue water was mesmerising every time we walked. Few Mentions who made our trip worthy (everyone in the resort is really sweet and made sure we were comfortable enough but i could only remember these names as of now ;P) --> GM - Mr.
Cons: It shouldn't have ended so soon, wished we had stayed there for few more days, Hopefully next time or may be soon.

Cons: There is nothing to complain about.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: The staff are amazing! They are so friendly and helpful! Every single staff member greets you with a smile and asks how your day is going! We loved the "family" feel of the resort. They remember your name, what you want to drink and it all seems sincere...not forced! It's a beautiful island and we really like that it was adult only! It's tranquil and we really got to relax! The snorkeling on the house reef was great. Especially swimming with the turtles! We'll be back!
Cons: When we had to leave!
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Everything from the beautiful beaches, the amazing food and lovely rooms will help make your stay comfortable but it is truly the staff at Komandoo that make you want to come back to this paradise. The staff were all incredibly friendly and did their best to not only make sure everything is ok that you do not need to ask for anything but to also become friends with you. In particular the staff Fazal, Salim, Najid a.k.a bubbly, Saeed and Shimaal were amazing people to meet and would be reason enough to come back again to see them again. Fazal and Salim where always smiling and happy to see you and have a chat. Najid was amazing in always wanting to go out snorkeling with us and help reassure my wife who was nervous about the fish. Shimaal who was always a pleasure at meal times to talk to and also helped us both find stingrays. And last but definitely not least was Saeed who always cleaned our room to perfection, made incredible towel foldings of animals and objects but the main honourable mention was him being the life and soul of Maldivian night with his singing and dance moves! All in all the honeymoon here was amazing and me and my wife look forward to coming again.and thank you for an amazing experience.
Cons: The AC in the water villas didn't always keep the room cool enough.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Paradise!!! My wife and I could not have hoped for a better start to our honeymoon than at Komandoo, this island is truly paradise. The turquoise water, white sands, hundreds and hundreds of fishes that fill the stunning coral reef with even more colors... we found this resort to be, in one word, idyllic, what you imagine when you think of a perfect island paradise. But beyond that, what really made this experience so amazing and unforgettable was the awesome care, thoughtfulness, and sincere devotion to customer service from Solah and his staff (this talented, amazing, wonderful team could teach customer service to the best hotels/service providers in the world). Komandoo exceed all our wildest dreams, and expectations! Oh and the food was incredible, so good! We were lucky to be able to try both the breathtaking water villas and the cozy private jacuzzi beach villas, you can’t go wrong with either!
10.0 Excellent
Pros: We have stayed at the water villa, the room is clean and well maintained. The view from the room is marvellous! We can do snorkelling just outside our room. Actually you can do snorkelling anywhere in the resort as it’s a small island, you can just jump into the water and swim. We saw the sea turtle!! Staff here are very friendly and helpful. Making us feel like at home. Food at the restaurant is tasty and has variety of choices. You will not get bored of the food as the restaurant changes different food everyday. We will definitely come back to this place. We have met two couples here and this is their 6th or even 7th times staying at Komandoo. It’s amazing here!
Cons: No. All are perfect!

Pros: We loved everything!!! Peaceful and serene. We took the water villa and we felt as though it was exclusively for us. The greenery in the island require special mention, it brings extra charm to the place. Good house reef to snorkle around. Courteous and friendly staff. Food was delicious and wasn't monotonous. Definitely want to come again and would recommend to anyone who is looking for a peaceful holiday.
Cons: Nothing
9.5 Excellent
Pros: Amazing place, very well maintained even in the rainy season, the staff is very nice and they're all happy to help to make your stay as good as possible. Coming back from a dive trip in the afternoon, we spotted a group of dolphins and the boat captain took a detour for us to see them swimming along the boat, which was a very nice thing to do from him and the dolphins :) The buffet meals are varied and very good, there's always enough variety from one day to the next. The lagoon around the island is spectacular, it's like a very large pool, any picture you take of it will look amazing. The value for money during the summer months (June - August) is very high, even though a longer stay is needed since it might rain for a few days in a row. And after four trips you get a personalized villa number with your name on it :)
Cons: They could add to the number of staff in the spa (and perhaps the dive center) during the rainy season, the resort is almost full of tourists anyway.
9.3 Excellent
Pros: Loved the service - we were so pampered the whole week and it was amazing! Loved the excursions and all the bonus free things that were included, such as the free photo shoot, the free island tour, even the 15-minute introductory massage! The reef at this resort is amazing and snorkeling was so much fun!
Cons: We felt it was quite expensive, but hey - that's the Maldives! It was still worth it. We loved our stay overall, but if I had to give some feedback, I would ask for some partying and dancing events through the week at night.

Pros: The staff made our stay wonderful. Abdullah and Emilio took care of all details to make us feel like home. Great location to relax and enjoy the real Maldives. Excellent relation Quality-Price. If we go back to Maldives definitely we would go there again.
Cons: Everything was great
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Fodhdhoo island is a little paradise inside paradise. The staff of Sabba Summer Hotel has been very polite and careful to our comfort. Rooms are very comfortable and clean, and in the island everything is very easy to reach. People are very friendly and polite, really this was one of the best places I've ever been
Cons: Well this has nothing to do with this island or people. The issue is the plastic. Plastic is the plague of modern world, and of course not even Maldives are exempted from it. We've cleaned as much as possible the places and beaches where we've been from bottles and stuff like that, but of course people, especially local people, must be careful to take care of their place, their sand, and their environment. A beach with only "natural" waste is much much better than a beach with plastic scrap.

Pros: Amazing position in a paradise island, staff always very kind and ready to meet the request of clients, perfect organization from Malè to Fodhdhoo and return.

Pros: The island is beautiful! Comfortable hotel. Amazing people. White sand beach. The home reef is wonderful, we have seen fish of many colors and sizes, sharks small and big, mantas, muraenas, sea stars and a big turtle. It was a lovely time spent on the Maldives. We find new local friends and learned a lot about their traditions. Hotel and restaurant personnel were very friendly and helpful. Imran the owner of a shop near Jetty is a very kind person, who will tell you a lot about local food and drinks. You have to try todi ;) Dasha will ensure that everything is as in the fairy tale and will patiently answer to every your question. Abdula will help you with everything you will ask him. Ibrahim will ensure that every meal you are eating suit your taste. It was the best vacation of my life! Thanks a lot to Dasha, Abdula, Ibrahim, Imran and everyone else who is working at Sabba!

Pros: Fantastic island, great friendly staff. Perfect place to relax.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: The island is very beautiful. All staff is very engaged to keep the island always clean. They have a lot of initiatives to reduce the plastics and has a excellent program related to environment. Everything works very well, for example, the seaplane schedule, the excursions and the explanation about how works the all inclusive, points that some guests had problems according the evaluation in the Booking. The room is very good, comfortable beds, very well decorated and the bathroom is amazing. The staff is very polite, attentive and work hard. Good restaurants, the food is good and have a lot of choices in the breakfast, lunch and dinner. Of course you don’t wait for a 5 star restaurant. Every night there is a show , party or live music in the bar, in my opinion, there is opportunity to improve. Finally, the marine life is wonderful, turtles, sharks, stingrays and a lot of fish you can see. The water is transparent.
Cons: The night entertainment
4.3 Okay
Pros: The beach was nice
Cons: We stayed in Garden Bungalows which were quite far from the hotel. The buggies would not stop to give us a lift to the main reception. The toilet and shower were outside and there were security issues with people looking over the wall of the bathroom and using the shower. We paid a lot to get the all inclusive package to only find out that there were different ‘classes’ of bands which entitled people to different all inclusive benefits. It made the guests feel somewhat segregated from other guests in the party.

Pros: Great place to relax and disconnect from everything,superb staff and delicious food.

Cons: 1. The duration of free message is a bit too short (15mins), it can be 30mins at least. 2. The price of the photos is a bit expensive, if it was around 170$ (for 50 photos on usb stick) it would be decent and reasonable.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Truly the most rewarding experience. It's the closest you can get to heaven even if you're not a billionaire. Doesn't matter which room you pick because everywhere you look the scenery is amazing.
Cons: I don't know if this qualifies, but I would place a wireless router near the main pool. On the other hand, not having internet allowed me to actually see the view more often. Everything else exceeded my expectation. Lovely place.

5.0 Okay
Pros: Clean water, free hour windsurf and kayak everyday. 7 restaurant. Very tasty food.
Cons: A little bit old property. Not very quick staff. Very often you meet staff around island who do not even say “hello”, just move with frowning face. Baggie like crowded bus without schedule.( you have to stay outside villa on the special bus stop(and not every 7 minute) Butler Shanun promised us to show the hotel, show us different types of villas, but forgot about it. At the last day he take us to the airplane parking after that turn around and forgot to say “goodbye” So many small things that differ good and excellent hotel. So, my opinion it’s 4 stars hotel. In any case, this thing do not prevent pleasure from warm water, clean sand and bright sun.
8.3 Excellent
Pros: Service, location, natural beauty
Cons: Bed was old, water villas were too tightly crammed
8.8 Excellent
Pros: The resort is situated in a very nice and remote island with everything needed for a comfortable stay. The waters below the water villas is very shallow but is teaming with fish and corals, which made snorkeling easy and enjoyable. The resort provides goggles and equipments needed for snorkeling for free. The adult pool is clean and well maintained and makes a good spot for relaxing and hanging out. There's game room, tennis court, gym and SPA in the resort, the SPA is one of the biggest in Asia and was very nice, highly recommended. Shower and restrooms in the water villa has doors to the outside so you can shower and look at the ocean below you. The villa features indoor and outdoor Jacuzzi which we really enjoyed. There are a lot of water activities provided by the resort. We didn't participate in any because we wanted to enjoy the resort. There are many restaurants on the island, I personally enjoy the French restaurant and Sinbad. The trip into and out of the resort was very well organized. The staff helped us with our luggages and took care of all the logistics. We landed late at Male so we took the domestic flight + speedboat option going into the resort, it was quite an experience to ride in the speedboat in the middle of the night, pitch black dark. But the boat was nice so it was still quite enjoyable.
Cons: Not all the staff are fully aware of the procedures and process in the hotel, some of them provided different answers when we asked about snorkeling equipment returns and checkout. Good thing is a dedicated person is usually assigned to each group of guest who is very well knowledgeable, so we ended up reaching out to her for all our questions. The Thursday seafood BBQ was not as good as we expected and was quite expensive, not recommended unless you are a big fan of Sri Lanka lobster. The water villa's furnitures are a bit old but still functions.
9.3 Excellent
Pros: the staff was really very friendly and everyone was very helpful , especially our butler Moussa. thank you I had to downgrade my room from Horizon Water villa to beach villa with private pool to enjoy some privacy in the pool. no refund was returned to me, although they were clear on that when I request the downgrade but I wish i had a refund
Cons: I had to downgrade my room from Horizon Water villa to beach villa with private pool to enjoy some privacy in the pool. no refund was returned to me, although they were clear on that when I request the downgrade but I wish I had a refund
5.8 Okay
Pros: Location was stunning, as well as the quality of the Spa and smoothness of check-in
Cons: Bottomline: beautiful resort, amazing location, Spa is top notch, but the feeling is of an overly-commercialized operation where the focus is to pinch every penny from the customer. Not a five star experience in terms of service. - while the check-in was stellar, the check-out was equally as bad: while on the way in we had a shuttle, personalized pick-up, on the check out we were put in a bus with other 20 people. - feeling of “pay as you go”: while the initial payment was on the high end, it felt like we were getting charged every step of the way and everything was “chargeable”. - to build on the above: we asked to be on the last flight to Malé, as our flight was at 11pm. The staff mentioned that they were not sure when/how. Ultimately we were put on a flight at 3:40pm, when there was another flight afterwards. To accommodate us, they offered us the chance to pay for lounge access afterwards (convenient!)
6.3 Good
Pros: The water Villa was great Breakfast was excellent
Cons: Moving around the Island was not managed well Curtains are not light proof Signs in the Island need to be clear we get lost all the time Information of guest were used unprofessionally

5.5 Okay
Cons: Stuff and butler were very uninformed,,slow and not Interested in clients needs,and dont speak English very well,a lot of misunderstandings.Buffet restaurant was closed,almost missed the flight as they arranged seaplane very late to departure time.
9.5 Excellent
Pros: Everything throughout our stay was perfect, from food, drinks and service to spa, water sports and diving activities. The All inclusive package is a must, there is a wide variety of restaurants available and also activities like snorkelling safari and Spa are included (which are very expensive if you don't book AI). The food was extremely tasty, with a wide variety of cuisines and restaurants available. Cocktails and drinks were also excellent. The diving activities are expensive but they were really really worth it; make sure you go for a diving trip at one of the Reefs further from the resort (better chances for some really cool fish there!) The Spa location and amenities were great, as well as the water sports centre activities. Last, but not least, perhaps the best part of our stay was the exceptional service. All staff were extremely friendly and helpful; from restaurant and bar staff to spa and diving center staff every single person made sure that we were having the best service possible (and the best possible time at the resort).
Cons: Unfortunately I cannot skip mentioning our slightly unpleasant experience upon departure, mainly to give management a chance to improve on a couple of things. To be more specific, we were charged around $10 (which the reception staff somewhat impolitely insisted that we pay) for two packs of chips from the mini bar, even though we were told that the chips were included in our AI package (on our first day in our villa). We were also charged for things that we did not use (insect repellent) by mistake, although this was eventually checked and corrected at the end (though the mistake was found only after we pointed it out). One important point here is that this $10 charge was just a part of the checkout bill of $1500 (which was on top of the $7000 we already paid for our AI package). I strongly believe that management should re-visit the instructions they give their staff on such matters; it is a real shame that an otherwise perfect stay was 'stained' at the end by insisting to charge for 2 packs of chips (it is important to re-iterate here that we were told these were included, otherwise we would obviously not even mention it)... This is very surprising because until that point we never even remotely felt that we are being milked, quite the opposite. Overall this small incident is obviously not enough by itself to take away a point from our overall stay, but it was very disappointing, because otherwise our experience was really pleasant!

Pros: - Their service to take you from the airport to the resort is perfect, beautiful lounge in the seaplane terminal with dried fruits, granola bar, juices, hot towels and coffee. And on the way back they also let us stay for an hour because our flight is late. The lady there even made us ginger tea when she noticed we had flu. - they sent me a nurse at breakast time when I told them I feel pain in my throat. She gave me otrivin, pain medication which helped me a lot. - once you reach the resort, you are taken directly to your villa, there is no check-in / out desk. LOVED that. - Our Mr Friday Adu was very attentive the whole time, available 24/7 to look after all our requests. He gave us a small phone to call him. - super clean room service and one of the best menu for in-villa dining.
Cons: - I love Coffee, but the machine at the room was not working, and for the 4 days we stayed there they changed it twice and non was working. They should change it from the current brand to Nespresso - limited breakfast options compared to other resorts, I wished to see more Maldivian dishes or at least their amazing bread. In Anantra Kihavah for example, there is a maldivian lady who bakes bread at the breakfast in front of you. - there is only one resturant in the whole resort which they can offer the food at different locations of the resort, and its the same items found on the in-vila dining so we basically chose to eat there most of the time. Also their dinner buffet is 170 dollars which I felt was too expensive - we had a one bedroom with slide. Phenomenal. Only downside, for safety purposes there weren't any reef underneath the villa, that also meant the water was completely clear of any sea life. It was kind of disappointing not to spot any beautiful fishes like the other resorts we stayed at. And the weather at this time was too windy with rain and clouds, so water was pretty high up, not the usual Maldivian feeling of shallow waters where you can walk for long distances - the spa was very regular, i had deep tissue 90 minutes massage. Nothing special and the relaxation area was too small and humid.

9.3 Excellent
Pros: the staff is really very friendly and helpful, view and beach very nice, diving center's location quite good with a turtle living just newlarby
Cons: Food choices are limited, arrangement of the saeplane not flexible and not predicadable
3.0 Mediocre
Pros: Rooms are beautifully designed. Spa services are of solid quality. Diving staff is very welcoming and experienced.
Cons: Hospitality is abnormally below par vis à vis comparable establishments. They clearly cater to guests from two countries: Russia and China (though surprisingly, the staff openly bickers and complains about the nouveau riche behaviors from the guests of either country, to guests from other regions ... which does not create any trust as it pertains to how they consider guests from other parts of the world either). Still, the major problem is that the technical design of the entire resort, as explained by resort engineers (three fo them!), includes an abject failure in the selection of heaters, with the entire set of rooms (from the highest priced to the lowest priced) unable to have hot water. This literally means you can't use the lovely tub in the room, let alone have a warm shower in the evenings or early mornings, which you'd think is not that relevant in a tropical paradise, except it turns out it does matter because the water in front of the beautifully crafted rooms is very cold most of the day. Moreover, the entire management team knew this before the opening a few months ago, but for the first days of your stay, will send engineers to try to "repair" your heater ... and when you are about to leave, they reveal the truth. SMH. The other problem is that quality of the food is embarrassing, there is no other way to describe it. This is without a doubt the worst food we've ever had in a resort. All the three different restaurants have significant failures in the quality of the ingredients used to cook the meals. Sad state of affairs overall, since we have no bone to pick with the hotel; they simply lack the management focus and the quality in terms of hiring experienced staff, as they move at a very slow pace, and are always several steps behind problems that they are aware of within their own resort. As a family, we will not visit a Mövenpick resort ever again either, they are absolutely miles away from other luxury brands.

Cons: the sea plane delayed for many times for the arrival to the resorts
9.5 Excellent
Pros: Everything! Loved the smiling staffs! Starting from the welcome drinks and saying good-bye! Mr. Pawan, Ms. Anu, Ms Irene to name few of them. The room was attended for cleaning twice every day! The food was awesome! The chocolate lounge offers free chocolate made confectionery between 4 to 5 pm. The coffee was great too! The seafood restaurant BODUMAS is a must try! The atmosphere of the main restaurant truly reflects the nature. The resort is only 5 months old. The set-up is brand new and as per our expectation with the brand! The Spa is on water villa with an relaxing feel! The service are world class! The Dive center offers various water sports. The seaplane journey was a fun!
Cons: Hard to think!
5.5 Okay
Pros: I like the view
Cons: It supposed to be 5 stars hotel but some of the services were not available such as business or computer services. In addition to that the prices are very high
7.5 Good
Pros: Hotel property is new and scenery is great. Breakfast came with free flow cava/ sparkling wine so that's huge bonus! Spa experience was awesome! Some of the staff were friendly and genuine. Hotel is super eco-friendly so good effort!
Cons: Do not expect good service here. Unlike many 5* resorts, the staff really fail to impress. No effort at all to make your stay comfortable, management was cold and robotic-like. Not genuine, asking for feedback and brushing it off. You're NOT going to feel like a valued guest here - go somewhere else if that's important to you. There were 3 cockroaches in my entire 4 night stay there - 2 appeared on the bed *YIKES*! My island host Nabeel didn't even respond to my text on the last day when I told him about the roaches - guess it didn't matter since I was already checking out and he didn't even bother to say bye. Food is definitely overpriced for the quality so manage your expectations.
4.5 Okay
Pros: - The room, good materials, spacious, privacy - The cleaning service (Marteen)
Cons: - The food : absolutely insane to pay that much and to have bad ingredients and frozen food at each meal. It's our 3rd time in Maldives, we never ate so bad. Even basics were not there, i had to fight every morning to have sunny side up eggs cooked well. The fish were always overcooked. Rice from the breakfast served at lunch and dinner just reheated. Personnaly i have lost 2kg during my stay. - The staff : to make it short, we just had the sensation that all the staff was annoyed all the time by the presence of customers. The worst where the waiters from the restaurant Latitude, absolutely no idea how to treat clients and the assistant manager Matt who should definitely go to school again to learn how to speak to clients, he was rude and indelicate. - Prices : 320 dollars for a snorkeling excursions (for 2 people, for 2hours), 559 dollars for diving (for 2 people, for 45min + instructions) etc. etc. At least 100-150 dollars for fish and fries with a salad and sparkling water (for 2). For the buffet more than 300 dollars (for 2) - Seaplane : after a long flight we had to wait another 4h at Male airport in a really not nice waiting room to have our seaplane, and when we finally arrived at the resort, they had lost one of our suitcase, and another 5 hours to wait at the resort without bathing suits and of course without excuses. Same thing for the return, boarding time, no space for our luggage, we had to wait for the next flight 1h later. - Noises : 5 to 10 seaplanes each day, noise during 20minutes each time. First plane at 6am, personally its wakes me up every morning. - Bed bugs, well this happens in international hotel, but once again, impossible to have an apology without getting angry. In conclusion : i will never go there again or recommend this hotel to friends or family. This hotel needs to have a huge review of the staff, cook and management if he wants to have European clients.

Pros: If you want to get to know the Maldives from an authentic side, you’re in good hands with Adam. Adam is always at your side and will do his best to make your stay a memorable one. I was greeted warmly upon my arrival. Adam organized the speedboat transfer for me and gave me great tips to explore the island and the other islands around. Snorkeling around Velidhoo is amazing! The room is very comfortable, I also enjoyed the meals at the island host restaurant. I highly recommend!
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Staying at Islandhost was the best way to experience the real Maldives! Adam and his team take care of everything from the moment you arrive, including getting to Velidhoo, so you really don’t have to worry about anything. There are so many activities to enjoy, and by staying on a local island you really get to experience the culture of the Maldives as well. Adam arranged all of our excursions like our trip to a private uninhabited island, and even cooked delicious fish over a fire just for us! The snorkeling and diving around the island is absolutely stunning- like nowhere else in the world. The accommodation is very comfortable and private, and Ahmed did a fabulous job making sure the room was always clean and nice. The private sand lounge in front is a fabulous space to sunbathe or do yoga in the morning. Adam’s restaurant next door has the most delicious local food, with plenty of other options like pasta and pizza too. Don’t think twice about booking your stay in the Maldives with Islandhost- can’t wait for my next visit!
10.0 Excellent
Pros: A hidden gem in the Maldives! Don’t think twice about distance from the airport- Adam and his family organize everything, from the time you land in Male through your entire stay. There to greet me at the airport, The Island Host team accompanied by a local plane and boat with spectacular views to get to Velidhoo. Once on their island, I really felt like I could disconnect and experience the Maldives, which is ideal for a holiday! My accommodation was a chic hideaway retreat, and I felt like VIPs the entire time. It is clear that Adam and his family are committed to their guests, and arranged everything personally down to a locally caught fish dinner. They allowed me to create my own experience, while sharing in the local culture of the island. If you are looking for a place in the Maldives to truly get away, design your own vacation, and experience culture and adventure with outstanding 5-star service, The Island Host is for you!
