This was our second time we visited this paradise and we still need more of this place. From the first moment you step on this beautiful island, you can feel the kindness and professional attitude of all the staff, the pure beauty of the island and the overwhelming colour of the Indian Ocean which I have never seen in any other place on the Earth.

Me and my friend first time came here was in May 2018 for 10 nights all inclusive and everything was perfect so when we came back home we booked another stay for October 2018 but this time we went for 12 nights on full-board as we found out that all-inclusive is quite expensive this time so we brought some money to spend. We did not control how much we were drinking, we were buying all (coctails, beer, soft drinks) everyday and still was cheaper for us than to go all-inclusive. We were writting down everyday just for a record what we had and we went to pay the final bill it was correct, they did not add anything we didnt have. We also went on 2 snorkeling trips where we saw a Manta ray and turtles which was amazing and the guy from the diving center is a real proffesional. As we were repetears they prepared for us a dinner on the beach with the starter, soup, main course and dezert which was delicious and we ordered one bottle of rose wine to make it perfect. Anyway all the waiters and barmans are amazing.

In owerall, it just couldn´t be better. Both times we stayed in the room no. 177 which for us is the best room, just few steps from the sea and as we literally fell in love with this spot we already booked another stay from 7-18 April 2019 so we have visited this island 3 times during one year :D so we would be so happy if we can get the same room 177 again!

Thank you Holiday Island team that you always make our stay so pleasant indeed and we are looking forward to see you again in April 2019 !!!
Thank 7Gabriela7

the overall rating is IT IS OK, its a quiet isolated island, perfect for couples, nothing much to do especially with you are going with kids, but no really kids were seen around, and this type of places are for doing NOTHING, just relax. they offer some snorkeling trips to see mantas, turtles and other creatures. prices i guess is like everywhere this type " a bit overpraised" as usual. if you are not on ALL INCLUSIVE then the most annoying thing is that on top of what you thought you'll pay it will be another service charge and some government tax which is on top of price so for ex: a non alcoholic cocktail : the price in the menu is $6, but on the bill to pay it will be plus 0.60 - service charge and plus another 0.79 Gov tax so actually the cocktail will cost you $7.39, just bear this in mind so you allow extra money to leave your wallet :), apart from this unless we drink a canned drink, all other drinks either alcohol or non alcoholic like juices (apart from fresh juices) are really really watery :)
food was nice,
now to the room: its very dated, but they trying to keep it clean, TV worked OK, we were please with selection of channels. the two entries to the room (one from inside the island another from the beach) are a plus. the water tap in front of each room also is a nice touch so helps keeping the room floor sand free,.

there are plenty sun lounges around, and beach towels are provided

in general i am not complaining at all, just stating the reality, i really enjoyed our 7 nights stay in mid April, we had nice weather no rain.

This place has a decent resort vibe. Not really nice but not terrible either. The sand and ocean are really beautiful. However, the staff seems to get flustered easily at small problems. Obvious solutions are lost on them. On checking out, one guest in front of me in line tried to dispute his mini-bar charges. The staff were rude and insisted he pay without offering evidence of his consumption. My friend was overcharged for drinks that she had previously consumed on different nights for different prices. To settle the dispute, I went and got a menu to see what the price was but that drink wasn't on their regular menu. Then the staff started insulting us and it was in poor taste and unbecoming of a resort that is trying to cater to an upper market. There are a lot of options in the Maldives for places to stay. I'd look elsewhere.

Poor hotel with nice nature, but service personal is only "yes" or "no", food the same in every day, no fish, no sea goods, just chicken, or steamed fish and grilled gummy bacon, the same every day.
evening program radio!
and 2 time in week local vocalist (looks like Bob Marley, sings like addict driver..
as main transport are boats, almost 20 years old, i try to go fishing ... but boat motor dead by the way, wake up on 5 morning and after 2 hours siting in sea and waitting for help(other boat), and after came back, like a bonus for us, manager said, we reciprocate for you "did not calculate that trip", as i said BIG BONUS did not take money for nothing just time wasting.
About rooms, of course old buildings, with problems, bathroom door lock clogged up ,and we must to wait about 1 hour until boy whith hammer smashed it and change, no problem to wait, but after i was late into the boat..... No sorry , no extra boat(traveling to other island)
As main bathroom advantage is.... smell, yes smell , so stinks , even in room same smell comes. After few calls boy comes and fix it , its ok, but second day smell come back....
Overall hotel was good on 80 :) like radio stuck in that years.
