Amazing food and house reef

Selection of food at buffet, quality of villas, snorkelling on house reef
This was our second stay at Vilamendhoo in 2 years. It is a beautiful island and the service is fantastic from the check-in at the sea-plane lounge (we have a 2 hour wait for our sea plane but were provided a free meal and unlimited drinks and internet in the very comfortable lounge), through the resort check-in, restaurant service and tour guides. The house reef is excellent for snorkelling and the range of extra snorkelling tours are great and of good value. The spa (whilst a little pricey) is of excellent quality. Having a massage whilst looking down at the fish on the reef is worth the price of admission. The selection of buffet food is always amazing and there is something for everyone (including our vegetarian half). The villas are clean and very well maintained. My only constructive criticism is that some of the staff (typically the porters and room staff) can create an awkward atmosphere in hanging around waiting for tips. They will stand outside your room and make small talk until you effectively pay them or close the door in their face. My recommendation would be to institute a general tip collection service to be distributed amongst all staff including the porters and beach cleaners etc (you could even recommend a daily value per person). This would remove the problems associated with some staff. We are happy to tip good service and did so for our spa therapist and waiter. The only other recommendation would be to put a tide chart up at the dive shop so guests could check the tides times and plan their snorkelling. Other than this, it was a brilliant stay and we would strongly recommend for anyone to stay there.

Fantastic house reef

Great snorkelling, very clean, friendly staff
My wife and I seek resorts with notable house reefs for snorkelling. This resort lived up to our expectations. The island is about 950 metres long. One side had better access to snorkelling than the other. We would easily spend hours in the water. The current was very gentle (October). Pleasantly, there were quite a few life buoys anchored at the edge of the reef so that if you were tired or needed to quickly adjust your mask, there was something to hang onto. The entire resort was super clean and the staff was friendly and welcoming. I would certainly recommend this resort and I would visit again.
