Great quality stay with amazing friendly helpful s
Though we lost our luggage at the airport by our international carrier, once we reached the island, it made us feel relax and the staff there helped us to ease the frustrations on the loss of our luggage, by providing necessary amenities, electric charger and follow up with the international carrier to bring over our luggage once reached Male. We went diving and the instructor Mark was patience and through his guidance, I had improved my diving buoyancy and able to enjoy the beautiful reefs! The service staff were all friendly and willingness to help when you ask for one. Food was good and lots of drinks to select from.

stay at 23rd April
Having 2 night stay at valigandu island resort. When we arrived , a Chinese lady from front office was explain all the details about the island and resort to us,feel disappointed the jacuzzi is outdoor and we are unable to use it when raining day. Housekeeper who clean up our room, he was friendly and nice person but I forget his name. We are having the buffee for breakfasts , lunch and dinner at the same restaurant, it's too hot and our room is no.135 ,it's was too far from the restaurant, a few of the restaurant staff is no manners, when we are having our dinner , they come and look at us without any greeting and I feel they wanted to rush us to finish the dinner and they are going to do clearing. Few of Reception staff not friendly at all is it because I'm Chinese ?I need help for the iPad register for the trip, but was ignore from them. I'm also work in hotel line and I'm awared what we need to do. Luckily at the night we meet a nice staff name Hussan, he help us a lot about the seaplane transfer to airport info and late check out. Conclusion: the resort is very nice, with good view and environmen, but we are upset Due to few of number of staff with no manners behavior made our day gone ! Before valigandu, I have been stay in local island in maafushi, I feel the staff from there is more friendly, helpful and warm even they cannot speak well in English. I will back Maldives but not Valigandu resort.

Most relaxing holiday
It's a small and cozy island and there weren't too many travellers when we were there so it was nice and quiet to relax. I had the all inclusive package - food was really good with great variety. Snorkelling and diving were phenomenal - the reef was pretty, water was very clear and we saw sharks / turtle / manta rays / starfish and dolphins. Everyone was really friendly and service was great. Will definitely recommend!

Paradise
This resort offers many activities...especially the sunset cruise where we observed Dolphins swimming right next to the boat and was an excellent honeymoon destination overall. Our water villa overlooked the ocean and the views were spectacular. However, the room design could use some updating. Staff was beyond friendly and the snorkeling was fantastic. The all inclusive package was a bit confusing at first and not everything was included as we expected it to be. I would definitely recommend this resort to anyone looking to experience the Maldives for a fair price.

Nice beach for snorkelling!
Booked all inclusive package for Water Villa with Jacuzzi. The room is big & nice; Jacuzzi is not that attractive, won't book that if coming next time. We are being assigned to the room which is the farthest from those restaurant/spa - need around 10 mins walk to the beach/restaurant; it's not that convenience especially you found you miss something in the room. Some staff are very helpful and nice, some are not really - the luggage boy is quite rude and wait at the door for tips more than a min. We are not aware he is waiting inside the room, and busying on looking at the activities list; and he keeps standing there silently. So prepare some for the luggage boy. The food is good & nice. Overall the stay are good; if i stay again next time, I may not have "All inclusive one" & Jacuzzi as eating too much everyday and the Jacuzzi is not really nice.
