Good Option
Spa, Cleanliness and Simplicity
We stayed here for two nights to visit family and was pleasantly surprised. Very clean and well kept, although you can see it's an older property and requires some money spent on it. Staff were helpful and friendly and we live in the Maldives so it was not a holiday for us but enjoyed the experience.

Escape from winter
Snorkeling, hotel garden, Maldivian people
Overall I'm very satisfied with my stay here. Maldivian people are very nice and kind, snorkeling trips were great, food was ok, resort garden is beautiful, for the money EVR is good value. Only thing you should be aware of - Maldivian is not very punctual airline. Resort arranged my flight with it so that I had rather short connection time in Male and I almost missed my flight home 'cause flight to Male got delayed for more than hour.

Excellent value and easy access to snorkeling and
The included twice a day boat-snorkeling trips. High quality and varied buffets. Very attentive and friendly staff.
The food buffets where excellent quality and constantly varied. The staff where all amazingly friendly and helpful. Having lived in the tropics and been accustomed to the "thatched roof" tourist architecture we found the authenticity of the resorts "old British military" roots very charming. The snorkeling on the house reef was pretty good right in front of the resort. But a short swim along the beach or by resort skiff, found very excellent snorkeling close bye. The easy access by bicycle to the local towns was important to us to see how "normal" Maldivians live. Scuba diving was great, but was very costly. All in all a great place to go, especially if you don't want to go to a normal "tourist resort" island in the Maldives.

Overpriced, barely qualifies as all inclusive
$13 dollar per hour internet
The diving was okay and the dive staff excellent! Other than that I wouldn't send anyone to this hotel.

I CAN'T WAIT TO GO BACK!!! Casual paradise! MANTA
The snorkling and diving are amazing. The rooms are good sized with hot water, a minifridge, and the entire place is flat-one story. It really is ALL you can drink and eat.
I loved it there. The grounds are comfortable, safe, and pleasant. You can swim all day /night in the ocean or pool. They have a good house reef but they take you to other reefs via boat for free 2x a day and you get a BBQ on a small spit! The buffet for meals had a wide variety with fresh fruit,veggies and fish. Each night was food from another country. Quiet except Sat night when they had a surprisingly good DJ and disco ball. MANTAS DAILY!!!The diving is flabbergasting! The dive master and crew are experienced.I will go again alone or I may bring someone.
