Had a great holiday for 14 days at Chaaya Reef with our family. Enjoyed the beautiful island, clean beaches, crystal clear waters, very friendly and prompt service and gooooooooooood food. Everyone at Chaaya Reef made their best to make us feel pampered. Stayed at the water bungalow, 2 connecting rooms, which was great with the kids. But saw the beach...

Stayed at Ellaidhoo from 28/12/12 to 31/12/12 our first visit to the Maldives .The fun started from the moment we landed in Male, you go through customs and then go on a short bus ride to the sea taxi terminal. This was a great experience you board a sea taxi holding about 12 people plus your luggage - take off...

We travelled with First Choice, of which we were slightly disapointed with the Flight - due to technical issues with the TV this did not work for the entire flight - nor did my Reading light.

The coral reef that surrounds 95% of the island is fantastic. The island is quite small at 340m x 200m, the drop off into to the deep sea is about 1000m from the pointed tips East to West, and about 250m from North to South. The west end has 24 over water rooms, the East end has 20 "superior" rooms,...

We booked this via First Choice and my only negative is the First choice flight. It would make more sense to charge another £30 per head and include drinks. 10 hours is too long to be constantly charging for drinks. Also on other flights the air stewards ensure the blinds are down so people can sleep that way you dont...
