The Island had just had a fire when we arrived, the coffee shop and bar had been distroyed, it did not make any diffrence to us but a bar and coffee shop were allocated near by.
We had a super room with a good view of the beach, fittings tired and needed a good upgrade, but loads of space for hanging your clothes etc. The lighting was very good and its the best we have ever had in the maldives yet!!! the room was clean.
The dive centre staff were very helpful to us telling us about whare the reef was best to snorkle etc and we could look at the fish books any time we wanted to go to the dive shop.
The food was good with a good selection, i cant eat spicy food but found lots to eat that was not spicy. If any food ran out we just notified staff in the resturant and food was replaced (hot) we thought that the food was ok over the two weeks we were there.
One of the best things we have ever done in the Maldives was on this trip to swim with the Manta Rays i still marvel at just how they glide and come at the side of you its fantastic, not to be missed.
We would love to go back to this Island as the reef is fantastic one of the best we have ever seen, as to why they are now building a swimming pool (to replace bar/coffee shop) i dont know, the reef is the selling point of this island.
It is a great shame that the prices have been hicked up so much in the Maldives to the point that they have now outpriced us eg-; 5* hotel A/I in Jamaica is less than a 3* maldives f.b. Also a 3* hotel in Mauritus A/I is cheaper. So you compare the best value for your money.
Whare are we going next holiday Australia and its cheaper.
