OMG this is by far the worst resort l have ever stayed at and l have stayed at many! Basically nothing works, nothing is maintained and the whole place is literally falling apart. The staff although they try have little to no training and can only meet your basic requirements. You think going to a tropical island there would be... More

Stayed on Alidhoo for 2 weeks. Service has been excellent with both catering staff and management falling over themselves to provide what we wanted. The dive center, run by Meridis, has been one of the best I have experienced with almost personal service and 10 magnificent but different dive sites, with mantas seen at two of them. Other reviews have... More

I have been here for 4 nights for my Honeymoon trip. We have booked ocean villa. When we reached there, we were not aware or informed earlier that we have to take another flight to reach to resort. Anyway we took the flight and then water boat, so we reached there in the night which was very scary as 90%... More

Feels like home. Everything is free here , friendly atmosphere, world known cocktails can be free if you choose all inclusive offers , just amazed by the superb service. WiFi is free at most of the outlets, at bar you can have a free drink and watch your fav games online. Just superb holiday spot.

This is meant to be a 5 star hotel, well in my humble opinion its worth 1 star. While the room itself is nice and the shower area, no bath, is very nice, there is nothing else good to say about this resort, The service is non existant, they tell you there is internet but 8 of us had 8... More

We arrived on the island after a 24 hour delay. On first glance it looked amazing but after looking around the island you could see there was a lot of work being done. The staff were fantastic but the resort was less than desirable. On the first day we went to the pool and was told it was being cleaned... More

My husband and I stayed here from 28th September 2013 until 5th October and left early, and as many other people, we read other feedback on trip advisor. This is an honest and true review about this resort. When we arrived at the small island before our speedboat trip to the island, we were met with white sand, clear blue... More

This has to be one of the worst resort islands I have ever stayed on. It had an air of dereliction and neglect about it which sadly is not reflected on its website or in its charges. The staff were polite but clearly not enjoying their work particularly as there were so few guests to serve that they seemed to... More

My husband and I made the biggest mistake of our Maldives travel by choosing this hotel. The owners or the staff have no clue how to run a hotel. It seems to be a once upon a time great resort, but not any more! We were there from April 4- April 8, 2013. The day we got there, I was... More
