I feel sorry for the people who have given this resort poor reviews - obviously something went amiss. This island was pretty much as we expected, having been to similar islands before. There are a few criticisms, but overall had a great experience. First of all, the beach bungalows are in need of updating, as most of them are looking... More

We have just returned from 10 nights in Velidhu and we had an amazing holiday - we needed to "switch off" and it was above our expectation - there is nothing fancy about the Island but the rooms are comfortable, staff attentive and we couldn't of been looked after better. The house reef was incredible , we saw different fish... More

Just returned from a brilliant two weeks in Velidhu. We had a beach villa which had recently been refurbished (no 122 by the sea plane jetty), it was kept spotlessly clean by our room boy and was comfortable. There are no TVs in the room and plug sockets are the UK type. We snorkelled every day, the house reef is... More

I choose this place for my honeymoon, but I made a terrible choice. The island is very beautiful, but in wrong hands. The rooms are not very well equipped and the furnishment is very old, the staff not friendly, you must pay them all the time to receive a proper service and the food served was of poor quality, with...

I spent about 5 days here and as a place to relax it is a good choice. It is mid-range so don't expect luxury. The place is a bit tired and the water bungalow I stayed in had seen better days. It was definitely in need of a refurbishment. The food was OK, again mid range so don't expect gourmet... More

We stayed for our honeymoon for a week in an over water Bungalow. We truly felt that we were on a lost island, paradise a million miles away from anyone. We loved it! We were the only Aussies and the only couple who were not german on the whole island which was fine, everyone was great. Even though it was... More

This was our 2nd time to the island celebrating our anniversary, we booked direct-all inclusive & ended up with the end water bungalow-stunning view! the water bungalow's are really nice although pretty basic. The food was really good we always found plenty to eat, the water so clear-little reef sharks swimming around the edge, plenty of snorkelling to do without... More

This was our second visit to this island and still our favourite. We were 3 couples celebrating a special birthday and could not have been happier. The island is very small and we swam around it on several occasions. We had beach bungalows on the side where the seaplanes landed (104,110&112)and don't understand anyone complaining about the noise. There were... More
