Nice stay but dispointed at the attitude from some staffs
The buffer is great and staffs mostly nice. However, one of the staffs in the SPA center is politeless and sullen just because we are there to enjoy the 15 min free welcome SPA only and not intend to choose a longer one with charges. Evenworse, when we go the customer service center for complaining, the staff recorded our complain and reported to the manager. The manager told they have nothing to do for this because SPA center is not under the hotel but a third party. That's really dispointed us and almost ruined our mood for vacation.

Excellent stay!
We loved every minute of our time at Vilamendhoo! We were t ready to go home! The staff and facilities were fantastic! We had the same server every meal and he was so attentive and fun. His name was Shyraz. The food was excellent and offered a variety every meal. Our room was cleaned twice a day and he did an excellent job! Our water villa was top notch! Loved the outdoor shower & jacuzzi. Loved that we could snorkel right off our steps. The snorkeling was excellent as was the kayak trip around the island or just a stroll around the whole island. A minor complaint is the wifi. Sometimes it was great and other times it took several tries to connect but that's minor. My husband said the drinks in all inclusive are a bit watered down and he opted to buy a few rounds but in my opinion that's to be expected. Haha!

Awesome resort!!
Me my wife and 5 year old stayed at the resort for 5 days and every day was magical!! The view and the beach right at your door step was something out of this world. I did my first discovery scuba dive at the resort since its got its own PADI center and house reef. Take the all inclusive package , sip on a cocktail and just relax there...overall very friendly staff, Mr Robin and team took great care of my kiddo too...will definitely come back

Great place to stay in Maldives
Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner, Drinks, Welcome drink, and Afternoon tea included - is basically All Inclusive Plus (AIP), you get buffet meals in one restaurant and drinks (cocktails included) in all restaurants. Afternoon tea is basically snacks (sandwich, cake) that you can enjoy in two restaurants. You also get free 1h kayak every day, and windsurfing, plus you get drinks in the minibar (fanta, cola, sprite, beer, local wine, water) which is refilled daily, so it's worth it. Transfer - I thought I'll have to pay 23% for the seplane transfer as well, but I paid 712$. It was really efficient both ways from airport and back even though we gave them short notice on arrival (~30h). We didn't wait much. Staff - everyone is super friendly and polite and I don't have enough words to praise everyone working there. Food - every night is a theme night (European, Chinese, Mexican...) but you can also find rather "neutral" types of food if you're not fond of the forementioned cuisine. Accommodation - go for Beach Villa at least. Garden Villas are within the trees (not too far from the beach), but it's better to have the beach and sunbeds just few meters away from your doorstep. Prices - Honestly, when I read all reviews about other resorts I thought everything is really expensive. But not at Vilamendhoo. The prices are actually "normal". Cocktails ~10$ with all taxes, snacks at 3-4$, water 1.5l is 4$ if I remember. Drinks are at about 6-7$. Even a visit to the clinic and consultation cost me 45$. Snorkeling gear is 9$ but better bring your own. Our roomboy, Waheed, was a good fellow, always looking after our needs. Praises for him as well. If you're going for the first time in Maldives you won't make much difference in which resort you will be because you'll be fascinated by the nature everywhere. But this place was really good so I'll highly recommend it.

Awesome holidays!
The coral reefs was amazing! We enjoyed our stay in jacuzzi water villa for 4 nights, the view from our balcony was stunning. The food has much variety and there was different theme for dinner everyday. Overall, we felt warm with the good customer service and we will recommend Vilamendhoo to our friends.

Fantastic Maldives
Amazing place, just be aware everything has a price if you are not all inclusive. Diving is second to none, but very expensive. The staff are fantastic on the island and the layout really works well. The house reef is rightly legendary.
