Must make sure that all the fine print is read. I could not find anywhere when I made the booking that you are charged $240US per head for the speed boat transfer. Not having been to a place like this before, I booked bed and breakfast, not realising that there are no other places to eat than the resort, and anything other than the very good buffet is expensive, so make sure that you take up the option of breakfast, lunch and dinner. More importantly, make sure your flight to Male, arrives by lunch time because you may not make it to the resort, then like me you will have to stay in a hotel on Male for the night. I had Ellaidhoo make my hotel booking and transfer from the airport, the accommodation I received that night was just ordinary having to get 3 people to my room to try and get an internet connection, in the end they called someone out. All in all I have done this once and probably not do again.

Prepare to suffer and enjoy at the same time”
Cons: The communication was aweful so we almost lost an entire day waiting at the airport for the transfer to the island. After several emails and phone calls (two weeks prior to our arrival!!) they said they'd pick us up at 3 pm while we ended up leaving around 5pm as we had to wait for other passengers. Once in the hotel they said they gave our room to someone else as we were not there!! So they sent us somewhere else and offered an upgrade. The return to the airport was a nightmare as they said the seaplane would be around 10am. (Our flight was 3pm) but we left the hotel at noon and picked up some other passengers in other resorts... We got super late to the airport but we finally got on the airplane. Pros: To make up for giving our room to someone else they upgraded us to all inclusive so we were utterly spoiled while being there with massages and good food, alcohol. The place is breathtaking and there is no way not to enjoy having this amazing view and weather.

We stayed in the water bungalow and the view is amazing. Staff are very nice and polite. the chefs in the restaurant are very friendly and accommodating. We received a bottle of wine and fruit basket for our honeymoon. The tried the guided snorkelling and our instructor is very patient to us, specially to me because i'm not a swimmer but he managed to show us the beautiful fishes and corals. Thank you for making our stay memorable.

Paradise found!”
We spent 26 hours here to be precise, a chance to really relax and chill after a weeks diving on a live aboard. We felt like we had died and gone to heaven when we arrived. Gorgeous location, warm and welcoming staff, everything was scented! Our water villa after a week in a small cabin seemed luxurious and we loved swimming off the beech with the natural sea life (rays, jacks, glass fish and the odd baby blacktop shark. Our only real disappointment was our evening meal. 43 dollars pp for a rather average buffet and once tax and service put on top this came to 90 so about £70. Steep for the quality of food. However the location, accommodation and service were generally good and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would like to have stayed longer. Speed boat ride to and from also pretty painless. Only took an hour each way

Good value in the Maldives”
Water bungalows are good value and fewer than in many other resorts.
Food is as good as in other four star resorts. Staff us super friendly and snorkeling is really convenient and easy. We got downgraded the first night but handsomely compensated. The resort is slightly dated and maintenance is needed here and there. However water bungalows are half the price of other resorts so excellent value. We are very pleased.

Fantastic stay - great for snorkelling”
Snorkelling opportunities, Beach Bungalow, Relaxation
We had a fantastic stay at Ellaidhoo. A big thanks to Ali and the rest of the staff for all their help during our stay. The resort was not too crowded, food was good and the surroundings perfect. The view from our Water Bungalow (room 412) was splendid. From the water bungalow we could see numerous fish swimming around. We also went snorkelling right outside the beach area a couple of times, and spotted among others a big sea turtle, a moray eel and a number of small sharks. A great choice wether you'd like to stay on the beach or you prefer to go snorkling (if you want to go diving they also have a diving center on the island). If we could we would have extend our stay by a couple of days but unfortunately all rooms at the resort were fully booked already. Had a nice flight back to the airport, would recommend taking a plane rather than going by boat as the distance was a bit far. Either way, thanks again and hope we get the chance to come back in the future!

Even If u do have budget constraint, its still better to choose a better resort, service in this resort is 2stars, view 2stars, cleanliness 2stars, food 2stars. The overall standard of this hotel is really not up to basic standard, a lot of rocks and dead reefs. Very very disappointed!!!

Good Stay”
Sea, Reception and Views
It was a pleasant stay at Chaaya Reef. Hotel grounds and food was ok. Not to big nor crowded. Food wise was a hit and miss as some dishes was being served again and again. Limited choice in their buffet spread. They will also make you go for optional meals at an additional cost which seems not very worth it. And what they do is to ask you daily. The good thing i can think of is the water villa with nice views and sunset. Fishes and sharks that swims past your villa daily. We had room 410 with was fantastic! Would like to mention Mr Ali from the reception too. Very assurance and informative service staff! Keep up the good work. Probably will stay in another resort to experience the exclusive feeling of Male.

Good vacation holiday without breaking the bank”
Snorkling, Beach, Spa
Our stay was pretty delightful, we took the seaplane in and excellent to take photos of the surrounding islands. We only had one stop to drop off passengers and we were the only ones to go to our final destination. We land near a platform near the island and a boat picks you up. You a greeted by your gracious host, ours was very nice and helpful, she even sent fruit, chocolate and wine to our room. We got to our water bungalow and we had the one facing the ocean only. The water bungalow was nice, the mini bar was cheaper than the reg. bar. They don’t have room service, although my wife convinced them to bring some food to our bungalow…so nice of them. The door to the shower was broken and was a bit hazardous if you open the door while you have the sliding doors open to the ocean. The only thing I though could be better was a bigger patio/deck with maybe a hammock style bed hanging over the ocean. Our view was pretty awesome still in the morning you could see baby sharks swimming near the bungalow. We did some snorkeling and it was awesome as I never been before, we did a bit of the Kayak around the island. We stayed for 3 nights, but it felt longer. The food at the restaurant wasn’t all that great to me and a bit pricey to boot. The bars were good and again a bit pricey. We did love laying out on the beach during the night as the clear sky was wondrous, beautiful, spectacular. The spa was excellent, we got massages and we felt great afterwards. Make sure you bring mosquito repellant as the mosquitos bites on some people looked awful, I didn’t get bit as bad, my wife had a few bumps. Overall, I can say that we enjoyed our holiday, it didn’t break us at the bank. We would definitely try other hotels in the Maldives island chains as we saw some pretty awesome bungalows.
