              Great place”

              We had a lot of fun snorkeling there. The house reef is amazing. The island is tiny and cute, so if you're not into swimming/snorkeling, it's not for you. Staff is nice and polite, rooms are decent size, albeit the furnishing is a bit old and tired, especially in the bathroom. The food in the restaurant is of decent quality and variety.

              As a solo traveler, I never felt that I was alone during my stay on this beautiful island. I had fabulous 2-day/3 nights stay in there. I love the food, the room, and the staff. Dongie, Jenny, and Ismael/faisal (I can't remember the name anymore) are the best staff. I would love to be back again.

              Chose this resort for diving and snorkelling activities”

              I had a 4d3n stay in Eriyadu. 1 night is not full board, the other 2 nights for full board inclusive. For full board some alcoholic drinks like beer and wine are included. They have a bar which you can order other hard liquors or cocktails- price is reasonable. all of the meals will be buffet style and thank god it's different spread every day so it's not that bad. Food wise it's not a lot of variety but good enough. would recommend not going for all inclusive throughout your stay though. i did a calculation and realise that dining at the bar for 2 pax per meal is roughly between 30-50 usd depending on what you ordered. sometimes you join their activities like diving etc you will miss out lunch. so it's advisable to plan your activities prior to booking for all inclusive meals or not. but, don't go without booking for all inclusive stay as there is only 1 restaurant that serves food and you will get bored with the menu if you are staying for long visit. House reef for snorkelling and diving is pretty good. i didn't get to see any reef sharks though. Their dive centre offers diving trips on a daily basic and price is reasonable. Dirk from the dive centre is very knowledgeable and friendly. Had a very good diving experience with him during my stay. The resort plan lots of activities on a daily basic so you never get bored technically. but it's good to travel to this resort with a group of friends or during peak seasons as most of the activities requires minimum 4 person to go. 2 things to take note or improved for the resort is that they need more friendly/ enthusiastic staffs for their night reception shift. most of the time when i'm there enquiring about things, they look bored and not friendly. The next important thing to take note is about their house keeping. They offer to clean up your room TWICE a day. once in the morning and once in the evening. Which is a very good gesture from the resort BUT if you do not want them to disturb you every now and then for

              Just remember you are paying for the location, so do not expect luxury rooms. Rooms were clean and spacious. Bar and restaurant are good with good drink menu. nice clear waters around the resort. day tours are arranged only when sufficient number of people are available, otherwise cancelled. Nice helping staff. good wildlife in and around resort, saw stingray, baby sharks, variety of fish just on the beach. many breed of birds also could be seen inside the resort, mostly herons.

              Great Reef for snorkelling..”

              We had a great time snorkelling the beautiful house reef. It was stunning with every type of reef fish. Turtles & sharks can be seen in the house reef. The island is nice. Rooms are good & clean. Telephones in the room not working, wifi in the rooms and overall hotel not working. I think they are fixing the issue. But overall the stay was fantastic.

              ““An Unforgettable Paradise”””

              Well, Within two years this was my 5th visit coming back to my "Home Resort" my paradise. As usual, the food was fine, see more new staff this time but they were attentive, a small pool to relax, pool table, a small gym and the accommodation was good and the island itself is always stunning to me(especially the HOUSE REEF). Having my beer looking at the wonderful blue sea is really relaxing. Overall I must admit the special service and attention from the management and staff(including all the great chefs) given to me was really great. Once again a BIG Thank you Prince, Aaron, Basil etc and the management for arranging a warm welcoming back to the resort and the awesome hospitality from all staff making another perfect vacation of my lives. A Big Thumbs Up for Eriyadu.....Will Be Back!!!

              Best choice among "reasonable" category”

              have been to Maldives for more than 10 times. Been to luxury resorts to moderate priced ones, and I must say Eriyadu is the best in the resort category below USD200/night. I have not repeated any other resorts but Ill settle for Eriyadu for now if the price stays reasonable. If you want 5 star service, you pay the price. Eriyadu may be 4 star hotel ( a good 4 star for Maldives, I'd say ) with the price range of 2.5-3 stars. Eriyadu will add another repeat guest to their customer base. I do not wish to rave about Eryadu as i may have problems booking or price increase! Close to airport (45min by boat, weather permitting and this resort transfer fee is considered cheap even at USD150), Only one downside is bugs, ants and mozzies but this is not the resort's fault. they do fuming in afternoon but please do not forget to bring anti-mozzie spray. It's well-maintained and well organized place for Maldives' reasonable resorts island.

              Remarkable trip high light in Maldives ”

              I stay 4 nights Eriyadu, but I felt I was stay almost 10 days there because I have full of fun and good memories in the hotel and recap my 25 years ago my first trip in Maldives the purpose I come is to update the island here . And I am top 2% popular review in Tripadvisor. About the transfer before I came I have knowing some of the review about the transfer issue, I also got some mis communications b4 I come lucky the staff Niyaz to fixed it very quick it just take 30 min from airport to the resort. Second is about the room , b4 I come I know about the room is quiet old but bc u pay for much cheaper price compared to other resort so I have to accept it, Basil is help me to change a better which is new renovation so I am so happy to enjoy my comfortable room which is facing the beach and near pool bar No.217. Inside the room u have a big bed and very good shower room and the air condition is very strong even I felt cool at night. Third is about the welcome lady from Philipines she is my lovely angel because she know I am coming solo and every time if she have fee time she will talk to me and be my company we eat together and I have so many good memories time with her laugh all the time to make my trip full of happiness because my Angel there I love her and we are friends now. Fourth about the Most Handsome General manger Prince and Aaron there are very professional to listening to some of my comments about the hotel improvement since they have too many guest coming and sometimes is overlook like the beds cleaning. But all the problems they fixed it to me immediately so that I don't have any issue during my stay. I really say they are too good to me and make me felt VIP guest in the island. Five about the island I think the view and the snorkel and driving is one of the highlights for the hotel guest to come they have a beautiful house reef shark turtle or fish. Six the hotel bar is very nice i buy the inclusive package so u can get drink there and relaxe for includi

A big thanks to Ibrahim who served us in restaurant and to the guy who cleaned our bungalow nr. 225, every day ( sorry I don't know his name).The house reef is one of the best we've ever seen. We saw every day :turtles, sharks( nurse, black), sting ray and eagle ray and a lot of fishes. Food was ok, plenty, different sort every day. Only small complain is the price of transfer boat.Good to be on all inclusive because drinks are very expensive.

              Food, friendliness, value for money

              Our stay was fantastic, rooms where nice and clean, food buffet was very good with lots of choice, we did the beach wedding ceremony which was job well done by the team, diving school on the island was also very good and very friendly, the only things that is needed for improvement on a personal note is. Lots of trees on the island that need to be cut back as blocking views from all rooms to the beach area, also is the case with the swimming pool, I think their should be a presence of expats amonge the management team(currently none) also they need a massive upgrade regarding staff uniforms. Not professional or good looking uniforms. Overall the resort itself is fantastic, defiantly recommend and would defiantly return....all inclusive package is a must!

              Great house reef, great staff, fantastic diving options

              We stayed here from 24.9.2015 - 01.10.2015. It was one of the best vacations for me so far. Great staff - great welcome. We were waiting for a bit at the airport for our transfer because of national holidays at that time, but did everything he could to make our wait easier! Speed boat drive was great (1,5h in bad weather, 40 minutes when the weather is good) (/Roundtrip 165 USD/pax - one of the cheapest in Maldives) - All inclusive menu had everything we were told we will get. Unlimited alco/non alcoholic drinks - the home brand spirts, all soda drinks - sprite/cola, great buffet breakfast, lunch and dinner + snacks. - We were only bothered that fishing trip was not made when we were there. The staff said it could not be organised (that was the only thing that bothered me..) - If they say they will schedule this trip (worth 45$/pax)- they should have a different plan if this one is not possible. So asked about this in advance. - Diving center (EURODIVERS) is just perfect is a great instructor, we went for Discover Scooba dive and a lot of snorkeling trips. Definetly worth the money!! Eriyadu has a great house reef and you can also see Manta's, sharks, other fantastic species and ofcourse great corals.. It's unbelievable. - Beaches are perfect, not many people around, just about 100+ on the whole island including staff. - Restaurant and bar are superb, food is great, they try to vary as much as they can. Breakfast is great and so are desserts :).. -All in all it's a perfect place to stay. There is a great beach with not many individuals.. :) Thanks Eriyadu and SPECIAL THANKS TO (The bartender guys.. perfect company)

              "A Paradise to me"”

              Nice Reef, Good mangement and service staff

              It's paradise to me. My past visits and this recent one was always great. (But Sorry to say this time some (C)tourists really spoiled the peaceful and quiet surrounding of this resort). Overall I must admit the service and attention from the management and staff given to me was perfect. Well, i was given a free upgrade to deluxe room, having my repeater's dinner and a replacement fishing trip. Well, this time i am happy that i spotted where to see the turtle, rays and sharks everyday. The restaurants are fine but hope to have less baking food. A place like home to me, " I would go back for sure". Improvement after the renov the room are so much better now. A Big Thank You to Mr Prince, Arron, Husan Aaim, Ajith, Joseph, All Chefs and All staff from the Management that always made my stay a special one! Appreciated!!! See You Soon!

              Extremely friendly and helpful”

              house reef, extremely friendly staff and wonderful visitors and friends

              We were extremely happy with our stay. All of their staff especially f&b manager, Basil, and front desk manager, Aaron gave a very good treatment to us and little kids love them too. House reef was beautiful, just in front of your room and you dont need to take another speed boat for snorkelling. Other visitors in the resort was friendly as well. We enjoyed the company of Paul and Sarah from australia, Anya and Imo from germany, Riyaz and Sierra from Male and Rosy from Jakarta. Majority of the visitors in this resort are european so we enjoyed the company and friendship during our stay. Overall, we enjoyed our stay in Eriyadu and will return if there is any good offer.

              Good amenities, serene and beautiful beach

              We stayed there for 5 nights, the boat transfer to the island wasn't entirely smooth, we have to wait for over an hour for the pick up but the transport to the island was decent, the boat is clean and fast. The resort has all sorts of activities and amenities, one would be bored there. the pool is rather small but clean and quiet. Meals provided are of good variety. Drinks from the bar are pretty pricey but it has a great view during sunset. The dive facilities are credible, very professional, unfortunately, the visible wasn't that great when we were the in Jan.

              Another fabulous holiday on Eriyadu”

              The staff, the reef, the food

              his was our fourth visit to Eriyadu, and things were certainly a little different this time. I've always loved the island and the resort but the customer service was a little - shall we say, relaxed in previous years. This time - a huge difference, with a friendly and accommodating new Manager , a great F & B Manager (Prince) and a lot of new and wonderfully helpful staff. Fortunately, the waiters were still there! Even the reef seemed healthier this time, with some soft corals and an abundance of fish. This time I chose not to dive, but I didn't need to when the snorkelling is such a fabulous experience at Eriyadu. We saw an octopus, turtle and many blacktip and whitetip reef sharks. Even a tawny nurse shark finned past me one day! The variety of fish is staggering and I managed to check off many of the species on Maldivian reefs. The rooms are quiet and comfortable. They appear to be doing some renovation now so I expect things to be even better for my next visit. Thankyou Eriyadu for yet another wonderful holiday.
