I'll get the main negatives out of the way first, as the rest is pretty positive! We arrived a day late (not the hotel's fault) and had read lots of reviews about how people were put in downgraded rooms on their first night. Since we were arriving late, we were confident it wouldn't happen to us... but it did! Instead...

Our 8th trip to the Maldives but the first to Ellaidhoo. Our arrival into Male was on time and after only an hour wait at the seaplane terminal we were on our way. On landing at our resort we were quickly checked in and taken to our beach bungalow which was ready and waiting for us. The room was clean,...

For someone flying from the US, I guess any resort in the Maldives is at least budget luxury. But this resort definitely serves up a good Maldivian experience at an entry level luxury price. We stayed in one of the water bungalows and chose all-inclusive, and I must say all-inclusive is pretty worth it especially if you plan on drinking....

We stayed as family of 2 adults and 2 kids in a Superior room for 3 nights and were very pleased with the spaciousness and cleanliness of the room. But sometimes did feel that the AC was not sufficient for the entire room.. the view from the room was great and we could enter the sea in less than one...

My husband Sam and I had such a lovely 2 week honeymoon here and are already looking at coming back. We stayed in a beach bungalow and had a lovely view of the sea from our room - we even saw several baby sharks just outside. We had a couple of small issues with our outdoor bathroom but these were...

Although the title suggests not happy, that is not the case. We have just returned from a lovely 10 day break and Ellaidhoo. We stayed in a water bungalow. Although these are the premium villas on the island, they are not allocated sunbeds, whereas the beach villas are. When we first arrived, sunbeds on the beach were difficult to come...

優點:渡假村有天然的優悦環境,海水也很清透,在淺灘都會看到小沙魚,我住在水上屋的陽檯都會看到小魟魚,水上屋也舒適,沙灘也美。缺點:渡假村有點老舊,水上屋陽檯較少、並沒有休閒躺椅,也沒有樓梯可直接下海,我是選擇早午晚飲料全包式,但部分食物都不新鮮,也碰過多次早餐的牛奶是壞掉的,渡假村內有部分工作人員都欠缺基本的代客禮貌,那也談不上有什麼好的服務,在預訂時、渡假村工作人員要求我告知他們我在入島前-天住在Hulhumale Male Hotel的名稱及電話,可方便在我入島前他們會自動聯繫我住的Hotel,來確認我隔天早上入島到渡假村的交通時間,但最後渡假村工作人員還是沒有自動聯繫我住在Hulhumale Male Hotel、 也沒有告知我隔天入島的交通時間,怎樣也要發email給我告知、但是也沒有,都是我主動拜託我住的hotel代為至電到渡假村來確認隔天交通入島的時間,感覺這樣的服務不好,沙灘及泳池的休閒躺椅也很少,所以外藉房客都會去爭,每天-大早外藉房客就會用毛巾雜誌來霸佔着休閒躺椅-整白天,而到黃昏天黑才會離去,而其他沒有佔位的房客,就整個白天也無法使用到休閒躺椅,渡假村是否要增加多些休閒椅呢? 但是這裡還是有There are some staff service very good,bungalow overwater restaurant kitchen Name is😊 Mr, NISHAN very good service & reception Name is😊Miss ,Yenkey very good service, (bungalow overwater restaurant kitchen Name is😢 Pabundu service not good..not good..not good.. & Lobby cashier😢 bald man service not good..),這次來這渡假村住宿,有點被這裡的服務而影響了渡假的心情,整體覺得這渡假村各樣還是要多多加強!

We booked this hotel based on the reviews of the reef on its doorstep and we weren't disappointed. It was unbelievable, better than anything we've seen before. Each day we swam with sharks, turtles, giant tuna, octopus, moray eels and more tropical fish than I could name. The hotel itself was ok. The staff were lovely, nothing was too much...
