Having only just returned back to the UK after a holiday at this resort in May, I have to say that I was blown-away by my stay. I was a bit un-sure what the weather would be like as May is supposed to be the start of one of the monsoon seasons. We had one day of rain, it rained... More

For us it was our first Maldivian experience, therefore you will find in this review a lot of details, just as I would have needed prior to making our choice. So: there are two islands, belonging to the same company: Holiday Island (smaller, cheaper) and Sun Island (bigger, more expensive). For instance, the same bottle of 1,5 L of water... More

The waters are lovely and clean, very warm. But please note that there is not a pool at this resort - but then you have a lovely ocean to swim in. Take reef shoes with you as the coral just on the first part of entry can be very hard on your feet. We found that communication was hard as... More

We stayed here for 7 days. We went as a family of 4 adults, but got rooms in 2 different 2 families bungalows...with connecting doors so it was easy to hear the strange neighbours.. We had some problems about the toilet sink and the aircon, but the staff looked at it straight away. It took some longer time to get... More

The rooms are substandard with light fittings that hang off the ceiling, cracks down walls, water stains running down walks because the roof leaks. Furniture if it can be called furniture from the 1950's. The bathrooms in my room the sink was cracked and the drain plug was missing, the same for the bath. I had to complain for several... More

I went with my wife in Dec 14. We loved the place as we were not looking for all the luxury. We were in Room no 123. East side. This side had less people and hence we enjoyed the time on the beach. We are vegetarians, and the chef cooked us Indian food too. Best for couples who want to... More

This review is long overdue. I stayed with my mother and little sister in December 2014, between Christmas and New Years Eve. Given the season, the hotel was way overpriced. Transfer from Male airport was quick and flawless. When we got to the hotel we had to fill some forms and wait a bit before getting a room. I really... More

Holiday Island - great location - fantastic dive centre on the Island - BUT THE WORST CUSTOMER SERVICE I have come across for a very long time from the on site Manager Ali Mohamed. I asked for 3 separate things and he was unhelpful on all 3. Firstly giving 2 weeks notice of not needing one of the 2 rooms... More

This review was long overdue. Loved the place. It was well maintained, has an awesome spa and is perfect for a holiday. The island is quite small but really beautiful. The shore looks beautiful at night with the neon dots which are caused by the phytoplankton that are bio luminescent. The food was also quite good. Our only complaint was... More
