The island is undergoing renervation and all the public venues have been upgraded. The villas were a little 'tired' but perfectly acceptable and these are next on the upgrade list but we expect the price will go up once it is all finished. The service and food were exceptional and everyone was extremely friendly and helpful. There is an evening... More

The rooms are also lovely with a huge bed and bath tub. The service was excellent, always so friendly and attentive. There is a main buffet restaurant that... More

We stayed at the Centara Grand Resort and Spa for 8 days for our honeymoon. We went there to relax and unwind and that’s what we did. The resort offered a wide range of watersports and excursions. Without a doubt the staff are superb, friendly and polite. Internet, DVD, is really good. If you like spicy food we highly recommend... More

It's so sad to be leaving in 2 days as 6 days is not enough - this place has been brilliant for my family and I. We have 3 children aged 12,9 and 5. From our Beach Suite 107 - my children have enjoyed swimming with baby sharks. The children also enjoyed the fishing trip as well as snorkeling behind... More

We had a mixed experience. The resort service and the staff were truly excellent. They did what they could to make our stay pleasant. The same is true for the Cenvaree Spa. The food was tasty and varied. It would have been nice to have more examples of food prepared in front of you such as happened two or three... More

Unfortunately I noticed the standard has dropped a lot this time and I’m very disappointed. Arrival I arrived on the same flight as last time at 11:35am in Male.... More

We have stayed at the Maldives now five times and this is the only place we have gone back to! We love it that much we're just about to book for next year. We travelled with our two children, 6 and nearly 2. If you have kids, do not listen to the rubbish, 'it's too far to travel with kids... More

We stayed at Centara Grand for our honeymoon from the 9th April for 9 nights and cannot rate the place highly enough. The island is exquisite, the staff cannot do enough for you and the whole experience was magical. Our Luxury Sunset water villa was excellent although in need of a little refurb which is apparently planned for the coming... More
