What is good/bad at this resort: 1) fringing reef is nice, just in the water but corals are starting to bleach, lots of dead corals, during low tide the upper side of corals... More

We visited Madoogali begin October 2013. We really enjoyed our stay at Madoogali. Accomodation is clean and sufficient, although not luxurious. Food at the restaurant is OK. We just stayed for a couple of days, and can imagine the served food may become a bit monotone if staying for a week or 2 weeks, but for shorter trips surely not... More

It s a small paradise luxuriant, quiet, well served and represent by local people. Food is fresh and excellent. The place to be to dive if you are a diver or simply if you just want to... More

Beautiful island with well maintained vegetation and very relaxing atmosphere. The house reef is outstanding and this island is a true high light for snorkeling and diving. No man made walls or water bungalows obstruct the authentic island feeling. Rooms are spacious, clean and simple. Rooms have good location and beach access with maybe the exception of the rooms with... More

I would not recommend this island for honeymooners but it is a great place for travelling with friends / family. The snorkeling is excellent. You will see plenty of wildlife, some small and harmless white tip sharks, turtles, rays, ... The diving centre is OK. Equipment could be better. Staff is great like every staff on this island btw. But... More

Madoogali was a pleasant surprise, very good sized rooms, ours no.41 was in the sun all day & had sunset views to boot. Good view of the sea from our room, although not all rooms did, some were somewhat obscured by greenery, but all very close to the sea. On our side the coral was good & within 20ft from... More

As the other reviews have said, Madoogali is wonderful. The trip on a seaplane to get there is spectacular, the pick-up from a jetty moored in what looks like the middle of nowhere exciting, and the island itself looks just like a perfect desert island because all the rooms (detached, with nice verandahs) are hidden behind vegetation. The rooms ring... More
