              Perfect place to enjoy a true vacation ”
              1. First thing first, all staff was extremely nice. 2. The island was quite far from Male and located in a UNESCO biosphere reserve area. Eventhough most corals around the island were dead, there were plenty of fishes. Numerous I'd say, and from various species. So snorkeling was very enjoyable. 3. The beach villa (there are only two type of rooms, beach villa and the presidential suite) was a few steps from the sea. The style was pretty dated, but well taken care of, cleaned twice daily, in perfect condition every single time. 4. Many activities to choose from. We took the turtle snorkeling (nice), sunshine snorkeling with BBQ lunch on a private island (super cool! The island was AWESOME), stingray and shark feeding. There are watersports center with various sport equipment to choose from from standup paddle to seabob, catamaran, etc. and a dive center (diveOceanus) with full gear. 5. Special events each day, rotating, so guests won't get bored. 6. Spa Service was great.

              It was a great experices, but the serives for sunbeach need to improved”
              The hotel is great! But the sunbeach is private for the beach villa!!! if you book garden villa, the spot for sunbeach is not really good, you can't use the sunbeach at all. Beause there are any fish when you do snorking in front of your sunbeach. You can't choose the table when you have Breakfast/ dinner. I don't think this is really good for customer. But it is ok for accept. Anothers are great!!

              ‘Canteen Style’ food springs to mind. Not what I would expect from a 5 star hotel. Processed food, sugary fruit juices, over sweet cocktails, not particularly good wine. Needs refurbishment. Rooms resemble sauna (wood everywhere), outside bathroom (interesting at first) but not nice when trying to apply makeup and you are sweating! Staff not happy. Mosquito problem and they really need to get rid of the rats. We cut our holiday short, no refund. Stay somewhere else is my recommendation.

              This hotel could use some sprucing up. Sadly the reef is dead but there still lots of fish present. Food and drinks are very expensive and you have to pay $5.00 a bottle for a 1.5 litter of water. Margaritas are $12 and happy hour is only 20% off your drinks. Make sure you if you stay here you book at at least half boatd as the buffer dinner is frightfully overpriced. Stay somewhere else if you want to snorkel a great reef.

              maldives trip”
              The resort was fantastic but I was not prepared for the extra cost of the transfers, or the extra flight then a boat trip, this cost was not high lighted and also it was a lot of extra money on top of the 4 day trip. Other then that it was wonderful but the Mossi's were active night and day which was a bit of a problem to us they are non stop biting so next time I will take a better mossi go away product

              Everything is just perfect”
              Staff performance, location, food
              Everything is just perfect for us, enough said. 1. All is so organised, from the moment we touched down at Male Airport till we were back at the airport, there was always someone taking care of us. It sounded like a hassle at first, had to change domestic plane and then a speedboat. But the hotel made it all easy. 2. Love the food, especially breakfast. The table was assigned according to the room number and we didnt get to choose the place we want, which is quite strange at the beginning. But having a waiter specially assigned for you, showed how they want to ensure we are well taken care of. Though the food sounds expensive, around USD50 per pax each meal, we still think it was compensated with the good taste and varieties. 3. Staff, all very helpful and friendly. There was no one passed by us without greeting which we thought was rare. 4. The facilities were very good. From sea-sport center till indoor games. 5. Maldives itself is a heaven, and this superb hotel just a combo to our perfect honeymoon. Will certainly recommend this place to friends.

Overall I enjoyed my time with the nice staff in the island

              The Ultimate Island Paradise!”
              Beachfront villa, serene and nature surroundings, delicious food
              We booked this hotel at the last minute when we reached Maldives. Initially, we were thinking to book another hotel as we were given a great package but decided to book Royal Island due to amazing traveller ratings. All of us enjoyed our stay! We used most of the sporting facilities -- tennis, badminton, pingpong. We had wine by the pool bar. We engaged in some water sports activities too. We enjoyed the food at the Sunset restaurant on the other side. We stay at the Boli Bar if we wanted to just chill. We walked around the island at night. We loved the beach villas most of all, with the water literally just a few steps away. Although we had an unpleasant experience with one of the staff, and spoke to the GM who was very accommodating. Our whole experience, however, was really relaxing and enjoyable. A definite must stay and highly recommended!

              Overall staycation experience was pleasant and within expectation. Location of resort is quite remote and both air/sea transfer are neccessary upon arrival at international airport. Wide selection of food and quality is not so bad but pricey. Villa located in front of beach and both sunrise and sunset view are fantastic. Water sport activity and spa package are also best feature of this resort. Most of the staffs are friendly. Air and sea transfer are smooth but subject to change due to local weather condition.

              I booked the Royal Island resort and spa, last minute and in view of this being the peak season i find I got a good rate from agoda! You have to appreciate the island, the nature, tranquility and wonderful clear water just 3 steps from your cabin. If you snorkel or dive it is fantastic. I must emphasize the Diving club is excellent and very helpful! I would book a week minimum to really get to appreciate your stay there. The Wifi was only available in the bar which for me was great as could relax without thinking of work but my wife would have liked it to skype write with the children back home!
