Maldives- always beautiful

Close to Mali, affordable beer
First the good- we stayed in an over water suite,1/2 board. Great architecture as the suite was very private and comfortable. Ala carte lunch was reasonably priced and beer was cheaper than in Australia or east coast USA. Swimming area (ocean) was great for all levels of swimmers. The place was also very quiet. We could see sharks and rays from the deck. Next the bad- the snorkeling was disappointing. The coral is mostly dead and low tide is very shallow. It made it impossible to swim off of the deck at low tide as the water was shin deep. There were some nice fish, but if you have gone snorkeling before you will be disappointed. The good news is you can book a snorkle trip via the dive shop. The snorkle trip was very satisfactory. As for the rooms- they are a bit worn. No big deal, but could be better considering the price. Overall I'm satisfied And we had a great trip.

Bill shock & unfriendly staff

Nature, lots of sea life and view.
Had a bill shock of USD300 for a transfer by boat from the airport which presented itself after we arrived at the island. Another bill shock of USD128 for the addition of an adult to the superior room due to booking oversight, even though we left a note that it was for a honeymoon and the last 2 nights was booked for 2 pax in their water bungalows. With the exception of the reception, omelette chef and some maintenance staff, most of them don't seem very friendly nor happy. Quite a contrast to the beauty of the surroundings. Unhappy bell boy stood around for a tip and no word of thanks after given one. Not to mention a less than enjoyable volleyball experience with the staff where I felt like I was outcasted in the game due to a language barrier. Tried to introduce myself to them for better communication, but to no avail.

A great stay

A wonderful beach, good varity of food, and nice staff
This was a wonderful spot for a few days of sun and relaxation. The staff make you very welcome and that outlook each morning when you wake is stunning.

Comfortable and beautiful

Very beautiful beach, Comfortable water suite, an acceptable price
Not very far away from Male city, can be reached by speedboat within 20 minutes. The beach is very beautiful, water suite is comfortable and joyful. The food in both breakfast and dinner is ok but not very good. All the staffs are very nice. Overall, we think it is very good for such price.

Great relaxation in the Water Bungalow

Sunrise Sunset Snorkel
We stayed at the half-board water bungalow where we can see the sunrise daily. For sunset, can simply take a stroll towards the Maakana restaurant where daily buffet meals are served. We also enjoyed watching the fish beneath the water bungalow. As for snorkeling, we tried both the snorkel lagoon and the waters near the room. The waters near the room is much clearer and more variety of fish. However it's more rocky. The room condition can be improved though. There is alot of dust underneath the bed and sofa that made me sneeze alot due to sensitive nose. Luckily the ocean view made up for this. Another enjoyment is simply strolling around the compound that will take around 30mins. As for food, it's ok if you are not too particular. Overall, the resort is relaxing. I would love to try the beach bungalow by the beach for next visit.
