I evaluate the experience in three different categories: - Overall services (food, bar, ...) - 5* - Rooms - 4* - The reef and the beach - 4* - Diving - 5* Overall the service quality is amazing. We spent 10 days between 21st Dec and 31st Dec and the we never wear shoes. The restaurant (buffet) has incredibly high quality. You can find a mix of international and Asian food. We had all inclusive treatment and even the quality of wine, and spirit was excellent. Rooms are really big. We had a small issue with air conditioning (difficult to set the right temperature) but apart for this they are really in a good shape. Huge bathroom with big shower and tab as well plus one external shower really big. Only negative issue was the pressure of water in the internal shower was not the best. Huge window in each room looking at the beach. Reef and beach. The reef unfortunately is not the best. Lot of fishes (including many sharks) but the coral is completely dead. Nearby you can find many different island with better reef (we did many dives in nearby island and even snorkeling). While snorkeling still you can find many fish Sharks, tourtle, Eagleray, Octopus, ... Despite not perfect is still very nice reef Joy Diving. We went to Maldives to dive and all the dives has been excellent. The instructor and the organisation were very friendly. As all the dives in maldives it is really expensive but we got a real 5 stars treatment.

Hotel's Favorite
We picked this resort because we wanted to go to the famous Hanifaru bay for Manta Rays and that we heard this resort had plenty of marine life at their house reef. The resort was beautiful we stayed in the water villa which allowed us to jump into the water anytime we wanted to and we really enjoyed it. Just in front of our stairs I found rays, black tip and plenty of fish. I was so happy and never wanted to get out of the water. I liked that it has kind of stone barriers around in the water villa area so the currents were not too strong to swim. The staff were nice. The trip to Hanifaru bay was perfect. We went with all inclusive package and for me the choice of drinks were limited for example ypu only have 1 choice for mocktail, it could be better if you could add more. But overall it was still a great beautiful resort.

Just arrived home after the most amazing stay at this resort. We opted for the sea plane option which we really enjoyed even after a very long trip from England! Great views and a fun experience. From the moment we got to the island we felt like we were in a spa. Everything here is so relaxed. I was initially anxious that I’d get bored in the evenings but I really didn’t. We took card games which we played most nights and there was a live singer 2 out of the 10 nights. We opted for a beach bungalow which we loved. We considered paying for 1 night in a water villa but we loved our room so much we decided to stay put. I preferred having the beach and loungers. The snorkelling is amazing- as are the trips. We saw sharks, mantas, eals, turtles, dolphins and even a whale shark. As we were all inclusive, the hotel also provided us flippers and snorkel masks which was great. Me and my partner are serious foodies and we were so impressed by the variety of food. It alternated every night that we were there which was great. There is something for everyone. What makes this place really stand out for me is the staff. Every single worker stops to say hello/good morning which was really lovely. Their service was excellent. One thing to note is the mosquitos. I packed 3 separate repellant sprays as well as mosquito bands and we used them all up during the stay. Since being back we have recommended this resort to so many friends and family. It was an incredible trip.

After 2 flights, a sea plane and a speedboat, we were greeted by 10 members of staff all waving. We were given warm flannels and a refreshing drink. Our luggage was taken care off by staff. We were upgraded free of charge to a water bungalow. All staff were amazing, they nicknamed us Mr and Mrs England!! The food is so good you are spoilt for choice. Drinks plentiful, as your glass is nearly empty you are brought another one. At the end of a meal or drinks you have to sign which is no big deal. We did both the island hops and the dolphin trip, the staff help you on and off the boats. I had a massage at the spa which was fantastic. Our housekeeping was super. He came in twice a day, cleaned, replenished coffee and coffee mate, changed bedding and towels, swept and mopped. The shop is a little expensive but you can buy souvenirs, cigarettes, sun cream etc. we were treat like royalty. I would recommend this resort in a heartbeat, it truly is the land that dreams are made off.

TLDR: Overall not worth the price you’re paying. Choose a reputable international chain for better quality control. Food is nice, house reefs are nice (a lot of fish), the villa is average. BUT there are a lot of mosquitoes and bugs because there’s an algae filled lake in the middle of the resort - for what purpose, nobody knows. It’s not an attraction at all it just breeds mosquitoes. It’s so bad that they have to fumigate the resort EVERY DAY. Imagine breathing the fumes in every single day. Even then, on one of the days after breakfast, we found a cockroach on our bed. Just sitting on the pillow (see picture). They also have daily excursions and activities and you can even plan for your own private excursion out on some days, which is nice. BUT the staff at the diving centre showed racism and hostility towards Chinese guests, solely judging by skin colour. The instructors also didn’t seem to be very competent because they told us that the currents at Hanifaru Bay were “very strong” and that “sometimes even the instructors have problems keeping themselves from floating away”, and if we couldn’t swim well enough we might “end up in Thailand”. We spoke to the MD of the dive centre about this on another day and he reassured us on the safety of going out to Hanifaru Bay. They offered us a discounted private excursion out, but the initial mistreatment left us feeling very unsafe. The staff working in the restaurants and at the reception also seem overworked and are sometimes snappy with their attitude. The wifi is also terribly terribly slow even in your own villa. And there’s no wifi connection at all at the restaurants. Would NOT come back here again! 👋

Gorgeous, as in a dream. The place is beautiful, clean ocean, rich coral reef, beautiful beaches. Stayed 1 week at the beach villa and 1 week at the water villa. Both were beautiful, but the water villa was defenately more zen & peaceful, def an upgrade. The staff was very kind, also at the reception, don’t know why so many critics about them. Every time we had an issue (health allergy and other, minor problems like wishing for more hand soap etc.), they were kind and helpful and quickly solved any problem or wish. Also with moving to another villa, no problem at all, very kind and helpful. I had a medical issue with an allergy and the doctor was very helpful and kind and the staff at the reception helped me with a very generous solution. I am very grateful for their understanding and help. My allergy got better only because of their generous help. The food was good, many different chefs (all very good) at all you can eat so you can pick whichever you like or all of them. I am into asian food so the chef made delicious sushi and other asian yummy food - every day something different. The dessert/fruit chef made very good desserts. Also delicious pancakes for breakfast. And the eggs chef also. Also the waiters were all very proffessional and quick and helpful. All the staff was very friendly and kind. The place was clean, very nice taken care of and the gardeners were always working so hard, even at the most hot days, I hope they get well paid - they are the invisible ones, noone gives them tips. Overall, it was so beautiful there, like in a dream. I didn’t want to leave. 10/10.

One of the best holidays ever. Wanted a bungalow on a beach for a relaxed peaceful break and that’s what we got. Great accommodation, great food, great staff. Unfortunately I had a freak accident on the day before we left, hotel dealt with it brilliantly. Meant utilising their main speed boat and four staff for the whole afternoon island hopping to get me the right treatment. Can’t thank them enough.

My wife & I travelled to Dreamland resort in the Maldives to celebrate her 50th birthday and our 20th wedding anniversary in the same week. We cannot fault any part of the experience. the staff were so friendly & helpful, the accommodation was spotless, the food (selection & quality) was off the scale - there were so many options available at the buffet that I came back 2kg heavier even though I tried to eat well and resist the treats! Of course the scenery is pure perfection and the island resort itself was truly magical. The private dining experience and the beach BBQ created precious memories will will treasure forever. We booked through TUI and the pre-trip communications were excellent through their app. A long way to go but this truly was the holiday of a lifetime and we would have no hesitation in recommending Dreamland resort to anyone looking fora truly wonderful holiday experience.
