We stayed 15 nights at the Canareef Resort in one of its Sunset Villas and overall we had an incredibly great time.
For the staff: Whoever we have met - be it the waiters in the restaurants, be it the people at the reception, be it the people that do all the cleaning - everyone in the resort was super friendly and supportive!
The room was always clean - they do housekeeping twice a day - and whenever you need something or have any issue, the team responds immediately and takes care of it.
As mentioned above, the staff in the restaurant is very nice. The food is quite all right. They serve a lot of meat such as lamb, beef, chicken and even pork. I’m not sure if this is what people expect from the Maldivian cuisine. However, everything was fresh and all dishes are nice prepared. I think with just some little amendments of the menu, it will become a very nice in the future.
All drinks and small snacks (restaurant and mini bar) are quite expensive. A small beer or 0,1 l wine costs around 8 dollars, coke or sparkling water around 3,50.
There is one thing we especially need to highlight: Doing scuba diving with the Sub Oceanic Diving Club was an absolutely outstanding experience! From A to Z, everything was perfect: Starting from the very warm personal welcome by Florian, who is heading the Scuba Club, until the last say goodbye. We always had the feeling that they tried to get the best out for us as a customer - be it by choosing the right diving spots, be it by appropriately preparing the boat and equipment, be it by sharing useful tips and tricks, be it the nice conversations we had in between. Being safe and secure during diving was always number one priority. There was lots of space on the boat, usually there were only three to seven divers - so relaxing! So all in all: An outstanding diving experience!!!
