we are now in this hotel with children 6 and 2 years old. for the second time. I liked it very much again, especially since the renovation of the rooms and the main restaurant itself and the playground was made. everything is on the level! special thanks to the girl Patrice at the reception, she quickly provides everything, pays attention to each guest. for a second visit to the hotel, we were upgraded, which is very pleasant. I think we'll come back again.

A bow to the Bangladeshi boys at the resort! The reception by Malsha. Patrice always helped us. She even helped get safety pins for my wife! The Beach Bungalow - the beautiful view of the lagoon and blue waters. Sajid, Simo and Luna from Meridis Dive and Relax - Diving, jet skiing, and fun toying could not be fun without them. We went kayaking! Thanks Simo for the photos. Snorekling wxcursion with Mr. Toha! We made new friends, Matt and Valerie. It was like we were never away from home. Diving with Sajid and Luna was mesmerizing. My wife and I were both awed with the fish! I was so awe struck that I didn't move or blink in case I missed any. The water bungalow! Waking up to the sounds and view of the ocean! Wow! The marquee dinner at the beach! Thanks to Suleiman for suggesting it! And the dining experience.

The best service, very nice place, good people, and very testy food. We used to live in a water bungalow, it was very clean and with an amazing view. The beach is magnificent and I didn´t want to go out from the water. Hotel grounds are well maintained. Special thanks to our waiter Luteefee and his chef Shamil who did everything to make us feel comfortable and fulfill all our desires. In general, the entire staff of the hotel: in the restaurant, the Sunset bar, in the SPA and at the reception was very friendly and helpful. Everyone smiles and does everything to make the guests happy. We have spent an unforgettable vacation. We didn't want to leave! In one week of vacation we became a friendly family.

Our vacation was in November 2020. After arriving for 15 minutes, the boat sailed for us. After 25 minutes, we were already on the island. Great service, great reception. The hotel made an upgrade of our room for free and also gave a free excursion for children. I was very pleased that at any time for children you can order free food or fruits. Excellent service, all kind, and help, the restaurant is also super, chefs not only cook food but also have a nice chat with guests. Recommend as a great hotel!

We just got back from our stay at Cinnamon Dhonveli and had a great time. We stayed there as a family in the Beach Villa with pool which was absolutely perfect for us as we wanted to be able to put our little one to sleep and have a separate area to chill in the evenings. Also having the private pool was fantastic, as I am someone who wears hijab and the added privacy was brilliant. In covid times, everything was done to a very high standard. We were temperature checked before getting onto the speedboat. Staff wore masks all the time and we were encouraged to do so especially around people, which basically meant in the restaurant. We were happy to do this. They had masks and gloves available in the restaurant, along with hand sanitiser as you enter. We were worried about there only being 1 restaurant allocated to you, but the food was so tasty, different food every meal time, and they had a different themed cuisine every night. The room was very clean and modern, the bathroom was amazing! All the staff truly made our stay special, Sara, Niyaz, Chamil, Russell, Malsha, Diana were just to name a few, but all the restaurant staff and chefs who greeted us so warmly and knew us by name. My 3.5 Yr old loved how they would ask him about his toy monkey, or which car he had brought to lunch. Niyaz made sure to look after us! The reception staff helped us book a dolphin watching boat tour and arranged for a shark feeding. The spa staff were incredible and I loved my massage and facial. Overall, we had a truly memorable stay and would love to return!
