Visited the island in Feb 2013 for 2 weeks to get away from it all & relax. My friend and I had a great time.
Slightly worried about some of the reviews but we enjoyed ourselves, the resort staff were welcoming and very helpful our waiter and room cleaners were lovely guys, had a laugh with the Bar Stewards, you always gotta smile no matter what time of day you came across the staff who work so hard, even the gardeners were friendly at 06:30 in the mornings when they swept the leaves up around outside our superior room.
Diverland a huge thank you, they gave us the confidence to snorkel and we saw some amazing sealift and undersea life, truly spectacular the 3 trips we went on with them.
It was the adventure of a lifetime, from the seaplane from Male to the swimming with Triggers, Puffers, Lionfish & Boxfish, most of which were right off our beach.
Our room was 230, we had a shady spot for when the sun got a bit too much.
Only downside was the food, there was lots of variety but a bit spicy for us, breakfast was great freshly made omelettes and bread.
Island hopping trip we had a great BBQ the best thing I'd eaten in 12 days.
Thoroughly enjoyed it, and the other islands we passed by boat or seaplane made us pleased we had picked SVI, our beach views were stunning & not obstructed like other Atolls by water bungalows.
We met some lovely people, they know who they are and helped make it such a great holiday, would highly recommend it to anyone looking for a great deal in the Maldives on a budget.
