Second visit to Cinnamon Dhonveli and another enjoyable stay for 10 days end November into December. We stayed in a Beach Bungalow and had a lovely part of the beach with our own sunbeds and shade. We had been concerned about the building works and made some enquiries with Virgin Holidays and the hotel itself and was assured there would...

Visited on 1st of Dec 2016. Room were renovated but structure was very old. 25 to 30 min speed boat ride from the Male international Air port. Food was avg and does not have a lot of variety. If any one is going as a couple do book water villas which have a much better view than any of the...

Cinnamon Dhonveli is nice resort, but if you are finding something special from Maldives i will recommend to search something better. Yes, the service is very good, food is just excellent! but the beach itself is boring and not like it should be in Maldives. We stayed also on another island and get this experience of super nice beach! We...

Perfect place to relax in the Maldives if looking for a comparatively easy-on-the-wallet, kick-back, simple, nothing-fancy type of getaway. We stayed in a Water Bungalow facing uninterrupted views of the endless Indian Ocean. I must say it's quite soothing to sip wine during sunset on the deck while the gentle waves crash on the island's sandy beach. Bungalow was cozy...

I stayed in the overwater bungalow suites and fully enjoyed myself. I read about the other reviews so I was prepared for the limitations from snorkeling from the room and also the eye sore of the new hotel being built which neither of these are in their control. Everything they had control of was supreme from the room, bars, restaurant...
