We had 2 weeks on this wonderful island from 27th Jan, and had a fantastic stay. We travelled by seaplane both ways, didn't fancy the risk of a choppy speedboat ride, and the view of the islands as you fly over from Male is amazing. We have visited other islands in the Maldives, and found Ellaidhoo to be very good...

This is not the beautiful island paradise I expected, it has a wall right around the island which totally spoils the view, and there is no Coral left inside the wall so it all looks a little bland ! The sand is shipped in and is not the soft white stuff you sink into but quite coarse and thinly spread...

Just spent a gorgeous 10 days on this island. We had a fabulous time. I loved the island which was not too large and it had an intimate feel. We had a water bungalow which was large, light and spotless clean. We had clean towels, pool towels and bedding every day along with plenty of bottles of water. Also not...

This was our fifth time in the Maldives, but the first time with our children who are now teenagers. We stayed over New Year and had a fantastic stay. The speedboat transfer was fine on arrival, if slightly choppy, but was flat calm on the way back. On arrival, despite having booked beach bungalows, we were given water bungalows for...

We selected Ellaidhoo by searching both for the best house reefs in the Maldives, and for the best budget locations, and this was the one island that showed up on both searches. We were not disappointed. It's a sold 3-star experience: not too flashy, not overly done, but perfectly comfortable and reasonable. The food was a little hit or miss,...

The island was lovely but there was only a small portion with a proper beach. On the remainder of the island there were trees/bushes and a small beach area with a sea wall. This meant that the sun was only on that part of the island for about two hours after which it was hidden by the trees. It was...

Let me start by saying this is my sixth island in the Maldives since 1999 so although I can't claim to be a regular visitor I can claim some knowledge of other resorts there. My first comment is about the speedboat trip to the island. It's not the easiest trip. If you are in anyway hesitant about it then use...
