              Water Bungalow is great”
              We go to maldives for honeymoon and stay at water bungalow for 2 days. Room is clean, they have restaurant based on the room class. For water bungalow, the restaurant is Makana. They have so many menu and delicious ( you must buy all inclusives because price for food so pricey if you buy alacarte).Facilities this resort clasified to standard, they have gym ( only some equipment), outdoor swimming pool, badminton & tennis court. For picking up they have boat to transfer you from/to the airport. The staffs so friendly and helping.

The bed sheets smell bed, i have asked the room service to change but the smell still feel bad. The bathroom floor is sliperry. Restaurant too crowded, our table in front of toilet. My suggest if you stay in here just booked the water villa,.The desk front very friendly and helfull.

              Amaizing resort! We stayed in overwater suite and marine life is just fantastic. We saw sharks, crabs, many spiecies of sting rays, turtles, cuttlefishes, not to mention countless colourful fish. Everytime you go to your suite you see something new swimming in the water. Staff is extremely friendly and attentive. Food was excellent, there were loads of options for vegetarians.

              We loved the overwater bungalow. It has good space and it comes with a jacuzzi. The restaurant isn't too far to walk to, and the food is buffet style and is good. The staff is very helpful. They have excursion options for you. There is a good excursion for shopping at an island with a locally-run group of shops. The guide is very nice, but if you're not a native English speaker, his accent might be too hard for you to understand, as I, a native English speaker, still had to strain to understand him. He is known by the locals there, and is good to have around, but they really should accompany him with someone who speaks more clearly. He still does well, though. The resort also has its own shops, but they don't have as much variety as the town on the other island in the excursion does.

              Not very far away from Male city, can be reached by speedboat within 20 minutes. The beach is very beautiful, water suite is comfortable and joyful. The food in both breakfast and dinner is ok but not very good. All the staffs are very nice. Overall, we think it is very good for such price.

              Clean, Spacious Room with Big Bathroom, Nice Balcony View.
              I have a pleasant stay with my families in Over Water Suite as I can view the sun rise from my balcony early in the morning. The room surrounding is very quiet and relax. Water is clear enough for me to watch some of the beautiful fishes around the suite. Although the resort was fully occupied but everywhere seems to be not crowded at all. The air here is cooling in the evening, it makes the environment more relax and calm. The only concern is that the resort here did not have a good and nice sandy beach. We need to wear along our slippers or shoes at all times because of this as our feet easily get injured by those reef and death corals along the beach. So sad to see this in a famous place called Maldives.

              Service was amazing, Food was specially prepared as we were vegetarians and it was amazing food. nice walks by the sea stills.
              Stay was good, we were really pleased with some of the staff. Front office Akmed, the guy with the black rimmed glasses, he was very accommodating and had an infectious great attitude. A future potential manager. Hotel was very flexible in making adjustments for us all due to also a very good assistant manager Sean/Shawn. also not to forget the 2 great chefs (Dominic & Pan) who went to great lengths to ensure our meals were made according to our needs as we were vegetarians. I suppose this place is a surfers paradise. The reef is dead however we did see a great variety of fishes, stingrays, small little sharks. From the moment we arrived, everything was very well organised till the day we left. Well done to the great crew at the hotel.

              Very friendly staff, good food, reasonably priced wine plus a great pasta chef who makes a killer Bolognese sauce.
              Over all we enjoyed our stay in the over water suite. Room is good but needs a bit of work especially on the upkeep of the wooden outside deck. Good selection of tv channels from all over the world. There is only one place where you can use the Internet and that is in the surfers bar which is usually very noisy with music and the strong sound of the waves. This made it impossible to Skype our family. In this day and age we would expect to have wifi in our room especially for the price we paid.

              Amazing experience with very hospitable staff”
              This was easily the most memorable vacation I've ever had. First of, the location was spectacular; it was practically isolated from all other islands. Plus, it was only a 30-minute speedboat trip from the airport and the city of Male, making it very accessible for travelers. Secondly, the water front bungalow was worth every single penny. The room had its own jacuzzi and balcony overlooking the peaceful ocean. It had stairs leading down to the water straight from the balcony. Quick snorkeling trips were so easy. Lastly, the staff were so accommodating. On the first night, they couldn't give us the water front bungalow because maintenance hadn't cleared it yet. They gave us a beach front bungalow for the night (which had its own appeal). In return, the staff upgraded our trip to include free breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Plus, they even included a free spa treatment and free excursions to make up for the blunder. I honestly didn't even notice that the experience was lacking. The language barrier might be a bit irritating but overall, the staff were courteous and hospitable. They responded to even tiny requests. Overall, Cinnamon Dhonveli gave up an experience worth remembering and coming back to.

              We had chosen this resort based on reviews and it was exactly what we expected. We had amazing time at the beach. We did snorkelling which was a lifetime experience. The water villa was perfectly cozy and private. But the water had high currents which prevented us from going into it although the beach was absolutely tranquil. Food is something worth mentioning. Such wide spread of cuisines and so delicious that you will end up eating more. Taking full board is a wise option. So if you're looking for something really peaceful and relaxing then this is the place you should go for.

              Honeymoon stay”
              My husband and I spent our honeymoon in this resort and we're pleased with our stay at the water bungalows. We received a complimentary bottle of wine and romantic room decorations upon arrival. The facilities in the resort were good but the public toilets in the beach & reception areas were not clean. The quality of meal on this resort could be improved.

              Cinnamon Dhonveli Maldives Water Suite stay”
              Water suite is spacious in size. Jacuzzi is good. Staff were friendly.
              Room decoration is a bit dated which needs improving. There is only one choice of pillows in the room. It is too hard for me. When I asked the reception if they can provide softer pillows, I didn't get any reply.
