This was a honeymoon trip and our first time to the Maldives. I was looking for a excluded place (some islands are too close to Male), looking for great diving, a spacious and high quality water villa, and obviously beauty. In almost all areas Robinson did not disappoint. Their staff was very well trained and hospitable. They always talk to you or say hi (without it being annoying). I had long conversations with many of them and they all had the mindset of "I enjoy working here because my job is to make people feel happy" - this was obviously the management training them well. The island itself is nice although I don't have much to compare it with. Food was incredible. My only complaint would be that I wanted more of it. It was only open for so long and there was lots of times I wanted more food and snacks. I would have liked to see bigger sharks and fish but it may have not been the right season or area (went in June). Another criticism would be that the hot tub on the deck was not working. I had read a review before going that this was the same for someone else. Essentially it was useless because it was just cold semi dirty water sitting there. The deck boards definitely needed to be sanded down and redone, but I don't really care about that (but you might if you're wanting to give your girl a "extreme luxury" feel. If I go back to the Maldives I'd like to try other islands. We went diving a few times, was great. Snorkeling from the water villa was also great, saw over 5 dolphins, a couple little (harmless) sharks and lots of fish. Really felt like we had our own space. For the second half of our stay we stayed in a garden villa - wish I would have chosen a beach villa instead to be super close to the water still. But garden villa was still great and felt really secluded. Loved the canopy bed in the water villa.
Conclusion - really know what you want, don't just pick at random an island, do your research as I know they can be very different. If Robinson has your qualifications I highly recommend it to you, you will love it, my wife was in shock and crying at how beautiful it was.
