We went to Summer island in March this year, when we arrived at our island it felt like we walked into a picture it was an unbelievable scene, you can look at the water forever it was stunning, and every part of the island you went to had different colour water.

There are no words to describe how much I adore this property. It was a 3* earlier then reopened last year as a 4*, I can see it still being known as a 3* however this amazing place deserved to be a 5 star. Approx. 1hr (reached there in 50mins by speed boat) from the Male Int Airport. Totally worth...

I was spending my vacation in summer island when a person drowned while snorkeling , the victim was brought on to boat however there was no one on board who was able to give effective cpr and it was complete havoc where the crew members shouted at one another and the victim was brought back to the resort where they had no AED facility nor a doctor. Neither of it was available and again after shifting the patient into a speed boat they took the victim to the near by resort , luckily from the island there was one x paramedic who knew to give cpr but already when he started it the victim didn't look like he had any life left in him . Because so much time was wasted without being attended and so much miscommunication that for no reason victim was brought back to an island where there was no doctor or AED and taking the victim from point A to point B and finally to neighboring resort point C took almost more than one hour .

The family members were helplessly looking at their deceased father and the rest of the guests where terrified .

We came to the resort having the assurance that a doctor is available twenty four seven with life supporting medical equipments in hand . We had an assurance as such and idea as such and we pay lot of money and yet get our health insurance scheme for the vacation .

Having witnessed all that has happened and how irresponsible the resort manager was regarding the matter and not even asking for forgiveness from us who was on the boat during the incident felt like we are being deceived and cheated .

No matter what , I would never visit that island again knowing that everything that's advertised is a big fat Greek lie .

A very poor management and in respect to life saving techniques no body was around and not a doctor was available and it was all shouting and screaming at one another and the manager itself did not know how to react and calm the people down.

A beautiful island like rest of the maldivain islands but noticed staff lacking service and no guidance and everything is in an auto run where no one cares about providing proper hospitality to us.

Thank you
