NO MORE ROOM ON THE ISLAND ! That's what they tell us at the airport after more than 10 hours of flight. While our names are still on the reservations list and while we had reserved 6 months ago. So the desk clerk of the airport suggests us to go to another island during two nights. We refuse it and... More

Standard room is disgusting . Dirty and very taky . If you are in the second floor you don't even have terrace or a place to clean your feet before going in to the room which means the room is full of sand . We had a machine noise the whole night and after asking in the recepcion nothing changed... More

We'd read some poor reports about this lovely little island on here, and wondered whether we'd made a mistake booking it. We were meeting up with friends who I dive with who had been before and had liked it enough to return, so we went ahead. It is true that the reception is a bit dire. We were told initially... More

We stayed at Eriyadu after last minute booking for Christmas 2013 /New Year. Chose it based on good house reef reports, small size and reasonable price (for Maldives). We were spoiled after visiting Veligandu & Thudufushi and tried to lower our expectations. Transfer-despite our connecting flight from Doha being delayed by 3 hours (Qatar airlines-NEVER again) our transfer to the... More

If you want pristine 5* luxuries, don't go to Eriyadu. If you want a simple, beautiful island unspoilt by housing estates of water bungalows and un-necessary "luxuries" such as Jacuzzis and plunge pools, and with a superb house reef, then book up today. The food is not fantastic but there is always plenty and there are lots of choices for... More

Under different management and some room renovation this might be an excellent resort. The resort staff was very friendly but rather incompetent, especially the reception and bar staff. The restaurant waiters were very friendly. The rooms were large but quite basic and nothing like the pictures shown on the hotel booking sites. The island is very small (about 100m wide)... More

If you are looking for a budget paradise, Eriyadu is definitely the answer compared to the exorbitant rates the other resorts are charging during this period of the year. We stayed for 4 nights in a superior sea facing room. The room was quite neat but the furniture and other fittings quite old. Hotel staff were very pleasant. All the... More

While Eriyadu is considered expensive for resorts of similar standards in other places such as Thailand or Bali, it is considered good value for Maldives - a freaking expensive place. Booked a superior room that faces the sea, our room is right on the beach and only 10 steps away from the turquoise blue sea. Staff were friendly and helpful... More

I was aghast when I looked at the prices from some resorts. Eriyadu does represent good value compared to them, but not compared to other island resorts such as in Thailand or the south Pacific. I was very apprehensive, given the strength of some of the complaints on this website. My initial impression was poor : I had arranged a... More
