Eric F. Families with young children United States of America, October 21, 2014
Nice Place near Male, would recommend.

Location near Male, beautiful beach, somewhat well price for Maldives
8.7
We stayed here for 2 days before heading to the Park Hyatt. It was very nice. We did not expect it to be so nice as it was so close to Male and the price is "affordable" by Maldives standards. The beach villa was great, the beach was very nice, great food, and perfect for snorkeling with kids. Our 5 year old daughter played on the beach and snorkeled all day, she really had a good time. We didn't have time for the resort pool, which is pretty nice, infinity, etc… I summary, it was better than expected and the staff was superb, great service. Would go back for sure.

They didn't just simply deliver... they've exceeded our expectations. The room is same as what's on the website. The place is well maintained. Everyone was very friendly. We loved our stay in the water villa. We enjoyed the 'Satay Dinner'. I was really amazed that they really took note of the our food restrictions and changed the menu accordingly. We had a grand time!
Mun T. Couples Singapore, October 17, 2014
Can be best & perfect but still lacking in service

We resort hopped for 10days, really regretted not keeping at least 2 days on Velassaru Resort Maldives! One day was just too short for us. Moving stuff was a hassle.. There are some things loved abt Velassaru, I loved the Locctiane range of shampoo n bath supplies, my husband loved the facilities of the overwater villa wif plunge pool. We had such a great time there. Only disappointed that it was my husband birthday during our stay. E guy whom I spoke to when I dailed 0 had promised me to book us on 9pm on Japanese Teppanyaki and inform someone to help served the birthday cake there. Wanted to give my husband a surprise! However , we reached at 9pm sharp but restaurant was still full. At 9.40 we finally gave up due to terrible hunger and we chose to eat at the main restaurant which cost usd$75+++ per pax. Plus a drink each cost us USD220 for the meal. E good was good, but the waiter/waitress started to come to my table and ask us to get our food fast as they will b clearing the food stations by 10pm!!! we just started eating only. In the end we left the restaurant at 10.05pm , half-fulled, and drank ourselves silly in the room wif a bottle of Champagne and wine given complimentary to us. It's one day b4 my husband birthday. And they gave us impeccable service n we felt overwhelmly-welcomed! Was super disappointed wif Velassaru at a further extend when the cake wasn't sent to restaurant nor our room since Teppanyaki was full till.....!!! Will definitely spend longer days with Velassaru our next trip but if I have a higher budget and want to feel pampered and deserving.
