First of all, the facilities are old and air conditioner is not working, we feel super hot through the nights. When having EVERY MEAL, our group is separated and SCATTERED among every corner of the restaurant. Totally doesn't make... More

Very lush green island. Lots of walking and you can rent bikes. Beaches are pristine. You get 2 bottles of water very day which is good. Food in buffet is ok and I had the indian food which seemed to have the best flavour. It is expensive to eat al carte. The pop will costs $7.59 and a sandwich is... More

We stayed at this resort for 4 nights during Christmas week. It is one of the most beautiful place I have ever visited. Location is slightly far from the Male airport, you have to first take a 15 min domestic flight to the island and then a 10 min boat ride to the resort. but after you reach the destination... More

We don't regret going to this island. Island is quite big, there are different activities which keep you busy and interested (sting ray feeding, shark feeding, water sports, outdoor cinema, etc.). A few not bad at all restaurants with various types of cuisine. Of course, beautiful beaches and clear waters. We enjoyed our stay a lot. Even though in May... More
