Fantastic location, awesome island...

beach bungalow and the turquoise lagoon in front...shark feeding at the night at the jetty...live music at the main bar...Araamu spa
8.7
WE loved the island and the property a lot. awesome location..also easy accessibility to Sun island.. Just that the service staff at the main lobby is very poor...they dont treat you as valued guests, no proper communication was done for the exact check out timings and the procedure, very inflexible attitude to adjust to guests demands; definitely needs improvement

Staff had not managed handing over the rooms on time made people wait to give them the appropriate rooms whereas at the time of checkout they saw to it that we left the room at sharp 12 this was totally unfair .when we booked on agoda for relax inn male we had requested to be picked up for the transfer to the island at 12.instead we were asked to be at the airport by 8.45.We had arrived at 2.30 to the inn early morning.this was terrible

Staff were attentive and friendly. I particularly enjoyed the services of the dive centre. Paolo was very friendly and helpful, and he guided me very well on my dive.

The stay was fantastic. The accommodation was excellent. Restaurant Chef Mano (Hope I spelled his name correct) was very good and made special Indian vegetarian dishes for us upon request. The dive center is too good and the Diving/Snorkeling is awesome with Paolo, Amar and Mod. But, they take out one tank dive in the morning. Better for serious scuba divers if two tank dive is arranged every morning. Shami and other guys at reception were very polite. Only bad experience was from the accounts section. A support staff in the cash section named Hussain talked to us very rudely, that too when we were making final payment and leaving the resort on the last day and last minute. We were really surprised by harsh and rude discussion. Generally when guest settles his bills before leaving the resort, he expects smiling faces and a warm goodbye, but this crooked man was very rude. Such persons should be removed from duty that needs interaction with guests. Else, every thing was just fantastic and we had great time.

The place is amazing, the beach is a dream

the beach, the position, it's quiet

We stayed well, but there is a part of the island where the sand is very clear, another part where is dirty, full of small rocks. there isn't the white and clean sand that you expect in the maldives. the sea is amazing it's a paradise. there is no reef in the island. The room were not well maintained, old furniture, scracthed, the fridge had the door rusty, the paint in the wall dirty. And THEY DON'T PROVIDE HAND & FACIAL TOWELS!!!!!! simply because the don't have it!!! It' rated 4 star resort, but is at least a 3 star. The food quality is very good and there is a lot of food choices. If i could reccomand this resort? no for the same price or a little bit more you can find something much more better.

Decent Week Spent

Excellent Rooms and Bathrooms Good Lobby and Main Bar Area Good Excursions and Free Transfer to Sun Island(avail this asap after arriving at Holiday Island)
8.7
It was a nice and enjoyable stay;it was much cheaper than many other islands.It is very near to Mamgili airport which is also from used for transfer for Male.It is also a very small island comparatively.Rooms are good including the bathrooms.Room service is timely but can be slightly improved.The most attractive facility available is free shuttle to Sun Island;avail this asap after arriving here.When you combine the decent stay here with the ability to enjoy the beaches of Sun Island in addition to beaches at Holiday Island the entire deal becomes sweeter.The meals cost 20$ per pax per time;1.5L bottle costs 3$.Expect to spend around 100$ a day for 2 people;there are excursions to local islands,night fishing ,dolphin watching trips etc and you can expect to spend anywhere between 30$ to 90$ per pax depending on the activity.The room rates are comparatively much cheaper here making it value for money. We were suffering from indigestion even before we arrived there.The staff was quite attentive in offering us magic pills for these and then enquiring again a couple of days later. The transfer from airport to resort and back is very smooth;luggage etc is taken care of and you are made to feel welcome.

My actual stay on thd island was good except for the fact that i was really shocked when i had to pay 450 $ extra for the trip from male to mamagili airport which is 2/3 of the price of the hotel stay itself. This is for a 20 mins flight. This fare is exagerated and should be lowered if tourists are to be impressed and agoda needs to mention this too.
