Stayed here for two weeks last year, so much to say as I experienced the standard garden rooms which are basic, with an outside shower/toilet area, the first night I got bit to smithereens, the bed was fairly hard and I was marginally worried as the back door leading out to our shower area had the flimsiest sliding lock, bearing in mind it would be fairly easy to leap the wall and probably give a sharp shove to access the room, although I must say there where not reports of theft etc on the island, the dining area for the garden villas was basically a huge open sand pit with a roof on, food was pretty good with a wide variety, although breakfast was a little odd with streaky bacon that wasn't,a weird bright orange thing, not sure if it had meat in it, plus the constant insect bites in the restaurant didn't help either, evenings are a fairly laid back affair, minimal entertainment, luckily the red wine was actually quite good
After our first day we decided to upgrade to the ocean villas for the remainder of our holiday £3000 extra! However it was our first proper holiday in years and was worth every penny, got collected from our old room by our 'butler' in a golf cart, driven direct to our sumptous 5* room, which had a huge four poster, beautifully designed soft furnishings, a bathroom indoors, which had no see through glass doors overlooking the ocean, with your own outside decking area which was superb to sit and have a latte at the end of the day, as you also get a state of the art coffee machine, free WIFI, mini bar and complementary Cava on arrival, plus your out in the ocean a little way (lagoon side so minimal wave action) so no Bugs biting you! You have steps down into the ocean to swim in, I saw a multitude of sealife including manta rays throughout my stay, a really superb room, in addition you can call your butler to take you over to dinner in the golf cart, where you know have your own restaurant, which is indoors, more intimate and air conditioned, food was stunning! In fact the best food I've had on an all inclusive ever! The do cater towards Chinese and Indian food but also to more European tastes as well. Breakfast you now have near your room on a verandah overlooking the ocean... You now get proper bacon and sausage too.
The people are all extremely pleasant and helpful, after I'd upgraded I did have a fantastic time, the island is beautiful and relaxing and we spent our days snorkelling, walking to the other end of the island to watch the surfer dudes, it has great waves on this island apparently, and altogether relax, if you get bored easily the Maldives isnt for you but if you want to be stranded on a desert island in the lap of luxury (ocean villa) then this is for you, but honestly if u can afford it upgrade! The main island accommodation is 3* at best, bring with you boots own tropical insect repellant 50% Deet, after my first day I didn't get bit at all
