    ...We stayed in a water villa, which was beautifully appointed with everything you could need, and very private. Room servicing was excellent and the nightly turndown service was a lovely touch, as was the decoration on Valentine's day... The Fung, Dhoni and Laguna bars are all very nice to stop by for pre and post dinner drinks and there is a rotating variety of musical entertainment... The atmosphere on the island is very relaxed and the staff are very welcoming and friendly, and the buggy drivers were especially helpful... I would say whilst it's easy to hop on a buggy I would recommend walking around and taking in the environment, including the botanical walk which we found very interesting...

The jury is also out on whether the Kuoni (moonimaa) airport lounge was worth the $38 each for 3 hours while we waited for our late (11pm) flight... Snacks and soft drinks provided but it was probably just as good to sit in the waiting area of the airport and have a $10 burger king...

Once at the resort, we found out that we still have to pay for all sparkling wine (Prosecco or Cava) during lunch or dinner... In the same time expensive liqueur like whisky is available...

    ...All Inclusive : What we did : We took the basic all inclusive package and the reason for this was we knew the 'alcoholic drinks' were bit expensive on the island resort (not complaining but it is what it is) and we both wanted to enjoy cocktails without thinking about the price... Basic All inclusive includes meals for three times, which is more than enough as the buffet is fantastic... Our recommendation : IF you do not drink much alcohol , I think you can skip the all inclusive package as the package mostly add the drinks to it... I think snorkling gear is included in this package but I guess you could just pay for it when needed even wihtout the package... In fact if you want to do it in budget just go with BB package as the breakfast options are massive in the buffet restaurant and...

    ...We wanted to go to the Maldives but did not know where to start, but thanks to a fantastic travel Agent Huben Travel they recommended Kuramathi to us and I have to say its the best holiday I have ever been on. The level of service from the Kauramathi staff from the time we landed at Male was outstanding... We had a sea plan transfer and were taken to a private lounge were we waited till our plane was ready, they had little snacks and refreshments available which was a nice touch... Once on the island things just got better, we had a water villa booked which was fantastic and had everything we needed and our room attendant came in twice a day to make sure everything was clean... We had a problem with a noisy air conditioning unit and after trying to fix it the next day the whole unit was changed for a new one - what service!... We were booked in a select all inclusive which meant that we could go to any of the a la carte restaurants of which there were 8 on the island provided you had booked them ahead... Lunches were spent in the Palm restaurant which did pasta & pizza's with a cocktail followed up by an ice cream, the staff were so friendly and helpful... There was a great buggy service to take you up and down the island which was a jump on/off service which was nice in the evening to go to different restaurants and bars... Also included in the price was a free sunset cruise, we had no sunset but was still a nice trip out with fizz supplied and photos taken by the crew... Thanks to Huben Travel and the team on Kuramathi for a fantastic holiday and we will be back soon...

    ...Everything about this holiday was great , from the Beach villa that was well appointed and excellently service by the house keeping staff everyday... Every single member of staff we met was friendly, professional ,helpful and NOTHING was to much of a problem for them ... The bar staff were absolutely brilliant as were the staff around the infinity pool at the Fung bar and the island coffee shop especially Kathy ... The buggy drivers were awesome as well especially 1 driver who’s name I didn’t catch but he had glasses and knew exactly where everyone wanted to go ... Congratulations to the behind the scenes staff as well you provide an excellent service... The senior management team should also be very proud of yourselves as you run a fabulous resort providing excellent holidays to all your guests and someday I hope to come back to enjoy the experience all over again...

I think that shows that they treat their staff really well & it shows in their day to day happiness... It wouldn't take much effort to remind departing guests to complete it prior to being turned away at the visa/passport desk at the airport!?... We opted for the seaplane, as we didn't fancy such a long boat trip to the island... The seaplane terminal is far better than the actual international airport!...

    ...Great property Beautiful food at all the restaurants Drinks are good for the options but would have loved to see variety across different bars Pros The rooms are great Go for all inclusive package you won’t need to spend anything extra The beaches and property are clean Pools are clean and plenty options across the property Spa - the view is amazing specially the couples one they do on the deck Marine life around the property is plenty, we saw dolphins , sharks, crabs and all sorts of fishes which is awesome Recommend the sunset trip and submarine if going with a child Cons The wait for buggy to transport you to one place to the next is excruciating... We were averaging 14k steps a day The staff - while most of them are polite i for one felt them to be condescending in some interactions , one downer was the interaction with one of the restaurants towards reception 3 where we went to get meal for our child ( we’re told that’s where to go if you need a meal for your kid when the restaurants are closed ) there was some communication error which felt unnecessary...

There kids club Bageecha is just superb, where they have activities planned for kids for the whole day and it is well informed to the families... From check-in to check-out, everything was seamless... A big shout out to Ziyaad and Jausam at Farivallu restaurant ,Happy at the Dhoni Bar and Karren at Laguna Bar... The buggy service was just fabulous as the maximum we waited was for 4 minutes for a buggy at any time of the day... The sunset cruise was a cherry on the cake as it was beautiful and a must do...

    ...They have such a variety of rooms and they have ensured such detailing in each room type... They are so friendly and make you feel as a part of their family... We had booked for beach villa but the resort upgraded it to beach villa with jacuzzi and also gave a complimentary bubble bath for our water villa stay... Overall we felt luxurious during our stay at kuramathi... But chef Saman from the Farivalhu restaurant prepared Jain food specially for us which made our day... Overall we had such a good experience that we will definitely visit this place again... Thanks a lot team Kuramathi for making our Anniversary so special...

Our room attendant, Hunais, stopped by twice to ask if there was anything we wanted or needed and said he was here to make our visit the best!... The staff are also great here and at the bars... We picked up our snorkeling gear right away... We plan to return if this high quality of service and level of positive experiences continues for the rest of our stay...

    ...The hospitality and the service provided can be felt the time you reach Male airport. The Kuramathi airport team meets and greets you so well and they guide you on the transfers to the resort... The speed boat is also well maintained and they offer a good service there as well... On reaching the island after a mesmerizing speed boat ride you are welcomed heartily by the staff offering wet towels and welcome drinks... The room service is done twice a day which is commendable... We stayed in water villa with Pool... I personally liked Farivalhu, the staff is so good there... There is a frequent buggy service incase you don't want to walk... The checkout experience is also seamless and will be taken care well... I like when they send a letter on a villa change or on a checkout...

I had a glorious, 90 min massage over the sea, where the pampering was very special...

    ...Transportation: by boat around 75 mins - transit was very smooth except we have to wait for a few hours due to our early arrival in Male. Check in: It was super organized and welcoming... Snorkel with private boat was the BEST decision we made... Boat captain Thambi and crew Azin were both extremely helpful... Thambi literally pulled my friends and my arm half of the time to show me where most underwater creatures were hiding, and dive down multiple times to take pictures and videos for us... Highly recommend to go out with them, they know where to find the creatures !!!!!... I wanted to pack her into my suitecases and take home with me.. lol Staff: EXCELLENT!!!... I have no words to explain how wonderful staff are here... I've been to over 30 something countries and stayed in hundreds of hotels, resorts and I can say staff in this resort is the most friendly and sweet people!... It cooled off island significantly and also provided enough shades for us to walk comfortably outside under scorching sun...

The buggy service was very good taking you where you wanted to go until 1 am and we never had to wait long for them...

We also had the private Lobster Dinner down on the beach which was incredible, just make sure you arrive with an empty stomach!... The service was fantastic and everyone was very helpful and friendly... The diving school is wonderful with very knowledgable staff and our dive tutor (Alex) made us feel super comfortable and was a joy to dive with... The spa treatments were also very relaxing, especially if out on the jetty...

    ...Travelled with Kuoni and were met with welcome drinks and a great introductory chat about the island. The room (overwater villa with pool) was absolutely spotless (as was everywhere else on the island - even the sand paths get raked daily) and had everything we needed... Comfy beds, great shower etc!... Great range of choice and enormous drinks menu available at each restaurant/bar... All staff were so friendly and helpful, giving the perfect level of service without being intrusive... Buggies on the island were frequent and we never had to walk more than a few minutes without one coming along... All paths are clean and you’re able to walk barefoot around the island which we loved... Would absolutely recommend the resort for anyone looking to have an incredible trip away...

Wonderful diving and snorkeling sites can be visited, much can be learned about the local flora and fauna through the botanical garden, and the islands large sandbank is great for taking photos at sunset... Among them, a special thanks goes to Shaamil Thambi from the Watersport Center, who embellished our stay...

Getting around is very easy you can walk from the spit to main reception in 30 minutes or you can wait for one of the electric buggy’s to ferry you around... We chose select inclusive, which gives you access to all restaurants and drinks package... Overall it is very surreal with turquoise seas and plenty of place to snorkel and enjoy the marine life... We would definitely recommend Kuramathi as a romantic getaway destination...

    This is a paradise island for those who wish to have a completely relaxing holiday... We had a infinity pool which we used all day, this lead straight into the sea by steps... The water is so clear you can swim in the pool and see the fish from the pool side, or swim in the bay with the provided snorkeling equipment... The food is plentiful, breakfast is self service... We were on all inclusive plus which meant we had the pick of all the al a cart restaurants... The fish is wonderful and fresh and the steak is the best I have tasted... The room provide towels and are changed daily if needed for both bath and pool... Our room was kept immaculate by Yassif who went above and beyond to make our room special every evening for us... The bed was comfy and the shower was powerful... We had a bath with the most amazing view over the sea... You can book one to come if needed but there are bus stops too... All the staff were amazing and friendly from the buggy drivers, kitchen staff, gardener and receptionist... There is an amazing Scuba Diving school on the grounds...

    Me and my husband stayed at Kuramathi resorts for 4 nights. The stay was split between beach villa and water villa... The hospitality and the service provided can be felt the time you reach Male airport... The Kuramathi airport team meets and greets you so well and they guide you on the transfers to the resort... The speed boat is also well maintained and they offer a good service there as well... On reaching the island after a mesmerizing speed boat ride you are welcomed heartily by the staff offering wet towels and welcome drinks... Then the briefing about the resort , the activities, the layout is been explained which makes it easier to understand how the whole stay would be like... Beach Villas are very well architectured, poster beds and an open shower area are my favorites and of course the sit out area and a walk to the beach is still fresh in my mind... The room service is done twice a day which is commendable... Water Villas have all modern interiors done to make it feel so premium... We stayed in water villa with Pool... View of the ocean right from the bed and the huge sit out area made every bit of it memorable... the pool lights that shimmer in the night are my favorite part... Apart from that had a good time at Dhoni bar, sand bar, laguna bar... Live music just adds up to the whole vibe, They also had a movie night and DJ... The botanical walkways are extremely beautiful and so refreshing... Infinity pools, gyms , kids centre , spa and a lot more... There is a frequent buggy service incase you don't want to walk... The checkout experience is also seamless and will be taken care well... Overall it had been a very comfortable stay and the beauty of the island is very relaxing and soothing...

    ...I will make this as detailed as possible because some information was unclear to us before visitng the resort but now having visited this beautiful resort I can confirm on these things... All Inclusive : What we did : We took the basic all inclusive package and the reason for this was we knew the 'alcoholic drinks' were bit expensive on the island resort (not complaining but it is what it is) and we both wanted to enjoy cocktails without thinking about the price... Also, the next major reason was water was included in this package and we thought that was a plus as we did not want to pay $2/3 for water each time ... However we mis judged as drinking water was available on the buggy stops for free to refill so that was not a problem ... We mostly took bottled waters from the bars to our rooms as the water bottles on the rooms fridge were not enough for us ... Also the all inclusive package includes the non alcoholic drinks on the minibar in the room but not the alcoholic drinks ... Basic All inclusive includes meals for three times, which is more than enough as the buffet is fantastic... I think snorkling gear is included in this package but I guess you could just pay for it when needed even wihtout the package... We were given a complimentary sunset cruise package on arrival (not sure because we were on all inclusive package) but we could not go on the cruise due to weather issues... In fact if you want to do it in budget just go with BB package as the breakfast options are massive in the buffet restaurant and...

    This larger island in the Maldives is so beautiful. From the minute you step on to the pier and walk towards reception your shoulders relax and the the warm, clear water sparkles in the sunshine... The vegetation is lush and offers the opportunity for shaded walks... The sand is white and soft so I abandoned my flip flops very early... The staff are incredibly helpful, kind and efficient... Staff looking after the accommodation seemed to magically know when it was convenient to clean the rooms etc... In which case your allotted restaurant will have plenty of choice too but is more casual... The diving is wonderful just off the house reef... I had a glorious, 90 min massage over the sea, where the pampering was very special...

    First time visiting the Maldives and Kuramathi island exceeded our expectations... Everything was accessible by foot but the island also have buggies dotted around the island to transport you to different parts of the island... Accommodation : Thundi Villa with pool(350) - would recommend this area for couples as you can watch the sunset from your balcony every evening... Thanks to Hunais for keeping our villa spotless throughout our stay and for always being so friendly... We opted for the select all inclusive package and would recommend this option as all of the food on the island was excellent with plenty of different options... This package also includes the sunset cruise and snorkelling equipment during your stay... All of the staff on the island were very friendly , courteous and accommodating with all of our requests...

    ...I cannot rate this resort high enough. We stayed in a pool villa on the beach and it was top class... Lovely bathroom with nice Voya toiletries... Plenty of sockets for charging everything... Mini bar and water replaced as we needed it... Room cleaned daily and our lovely cleaners were fantastic... Our favourite place was the deck and pool watching the reef sharks swim by in the sea below... We had select all inclusive which I would highly recommend... All of the restaurants are fantastic, we had super meals... Laguna was our local bar and have amazing cocktails... Special call out to bar staff Faratu who looked after us very well and made us very welcome... Finally a shout out to the wonderful buggy drivers, we never had to wait long and they would drop us right home to our door...

    ...First time ever in Maldives and I think I hit the jackpot. Kuramathi resort has everything we were looking for Room type: Water villa with Pool - high ceiling, large bathroom, spacious deck and infinity pool that twinkles like stars in the sky at night... Check in: It was super organized and welcoming... Food&drink: Basic all-inclusive was good enough for us since both my husband and I are not a big drinker... Resort had three big buffet restaurants that changed menu everyday... It has few bars and a la carte restaurants (we had Kobe teppanyaki and it was fair)... Recreation activity: We did sunset crusing (included with package), visiting Rashdoo, kayaking ($26/hour), Parasailing ($99/15 min), snorkeling with private boat ($548/3hrs)... Snorkel with private boat was the BEST decision we made... Boat captain Thambi and crew Azin were both extremely helpful...

    We have just returned from our honeymoon in Kuramathi we stayed for 10 nights in a deluxe water villa... We chose the select plus all inclusive which was such a special treat, the al a carte restaurants are out of this world, every meal was absolutely stunning, our favourite being the reef restaurant... The various bars are all fantastic especially the dhoni bar - a special Thank you to Happy you are a true gem such a lovely lady... The on-site band Antidote plays most evenings again really enjoyable the lady has an amazing voice !... We spent most days snorkelling around our villa or out on the reef, so much to see, we also took the turtle discovery trip which was a success, a great experience...

    ...We chose the Maldives as we wanted a fully relaxing luxury experience which was stress-free and had plenty of options for activities and lots of restaurant / bar options. We found that Kuramathi was more reasonably priced than other resorts that had less choice for activities and fewer restaurants... We were so so pleased that we settled on Kuramathi and couldn't recommend it enough... We stayed in the Water Villa for 13 nights... We loved having the decking, the tub and loungers for reading out in the sunshine... One of our favourite things about the island were the restaurants and bars... We would strongly recommend choosing the Select All Inclusive package to allow you to try them all out... Our top picks were Island Coffee Shop for lunch, Palm for pizza and ice cream, The Reef for amazing seafood and Duniye for extra-special dinner... We also had the private Lobster Dinner down on the beach which was incredible, just make sure you arrive with an empty stomach!... The cocktails and drinks were amazing as well and we loved going up to the Champagne Loft when it wasn't too busy... The diving school is wonderful with very knowledgable staff and our dive tutor (Alex) made us feel super comfortable and was a joy to dive with... The spa treatments were also very relaxing, especially if out on the jetty... We would very much recommend a stay on Kuramathi for a special and truly relaxing holiday!...

    ...We chose Kuramathi as it’s a larger island with so many things to do. So much so we didn’t get time to visit all of the restaurants during our trip!... We split our visit between a beach bungalow and a water villa... However, when we moved to the water villa our holiday took on another level, we just loved being able to access the sea straight from our room... There are specific access points to allow you to move through the reef to get to a safe point to snorkel above the coral... It was a very modern airy building with great food and beautiful views across the ocean... The 2nd allocated restaurant with the water villa was a little more rustic... We opted for standard all inclusive and chose to pay for any upgraded locations as and when we wanted to... Restaurant and bar choice across the island is superb... Buggies are accessible across the whole island, we found these particularly useful in the evenings after dinner... The facilities on the island were great , there are lots of different pools to choose from as well at a gym and tennis courts...

We visited Kuramathi resort at the end of October for our honeymoon trip. The place combines the amazing Maldivian nature with many facilities like reef safari, parasailing etc. 3 restaurants in all inclusive packet, including variety of food for all tastes and combining different cuisines from all over the world (fruit taste is amazing). Through the island there are bars and restaurants for all the kind of preferences. We stayed in 2 different kind of rooms (beach villa and water villa) both of them clean,comfy and luxy. We were amazed of the very kind staff, starting from meet and greet at the airport and every person that we might spoke to. Special thanks to the kindest guy Eeman,our housekeeper, for the best services, and all the helpful insights that he warmly offered. Hope we manage to visit again! Thank you Kuramathi!

I was worried about heading out to such a beautiful island .. I expected kuramathi to be full of pretentious insta hungry couples, how wrong was I.. The island is so laid back floaty dresses and flip flops is all you require for fabulous island nights. During the day we don’t know where everyone went the beaches are beautifully deserted- no fighting for sun loungers! We spent our days watching the harmless black tip sharks - don’t forget your snorkel & mask. Arrival by seaplane is a must, the lounge is beautiful! Views of the different islands and atols are simply something else. Once on the island you’re welcomed with a welcome drink and a cool towel - quick chat with the rep then whisked off to our accommodation. We stayed in a beach villa (44) we were blown away by all of the little details the ‘room boy’ went out of his way to provide. The shower was a bit daunting (outside) but after the second night I didn’t care - quite liberating really! We stayed on an All Inclusive Select basis- highly recommend, we tried all of the 9 restaurants - Palm being our favourite, Not sure about the Duniye restaurant - a bit high brow for the island menu didn’t appeal to my uncultured palette- albeit the food was beautifully served by the all female servers. There’s a few bars along the island all within an easy walk but there’s always a buggy going up & down with plenty of stops. The bars have various entertainment on throughout the week - check boards at the receptions, resident band is pretty good, resident DJ was fantastic - felt sorry for him as no one got up in fung bar, maybe a few more of the fantastic cocktails and we would’ve all been up all night 😉 No downside to kuramathi other than mosquitoes at night, we found the jungle formula spray worked.

I visited this resort, and it was the most amazing experience. Right from the reservation desk Mr.pasindu assist me right from booking till the check out just on emails and msgs and his response was great. At the front desk Marion was very communicative and quick to assist and everything was done in a gif without any hassle. The deluxe water bungalow was an awesome experience. The rooms are clean and tidy and everything is taken care off. Front desk safitey was quiet helpful. Also the buggy driver kumar was very helpful and kind enough to make sure he could let us know the various amenities at the resort. 2 things I would like to note is the WiFi service is really bad its very slow n not available in all locations. Also the buggy s are not sufficient enough for the amount of people in the resort. There are times I have waited for 20 minutes for a buggy to arrive. Rest assured all went well n I had a great overall experience.

Having just returned from a deluxe water villa in Kuramathi, I wanted to share with you how wonderful this paradise island is. Everything about Kuramathi is first class, the food, the service, the beaches, the choice of restaurants and bars , but mainly how calm and relaxing the island is and how beautiful a destination it is for any special occasion or holiday. I will be back :)

We had an amazing 10 days at Kuramathi, and would absolutely lobe to return one day. We travelled by boat to Kuramathi having landed in Male and the boat transfers were very efficient and comfortable. We received a very warm welcome once we arrived on the Island, provided with helpful information and taken to our room which was a standard Beach Villa. Our room was lovely, a great size and we loved the outdoor shower. The housekeeping team do a fantastic job of keeping the sand at bay! Now on to the Island itself, we absolutely loved everything it had to offer. We really enjoyed both infinity pools, along with the gorgeous beach outside our villa. We were able to get a sunbed wherever we went on the Island at any time of day which was lovely. The service at the two infinity pools is great too, with drinks being served to your sunbed! The sandbank was really impressive, we liked it both in the day time when it was nice and quiet, and in the evenings to watch the sunset when it was a little busier. We did plenty of snorkelling, both on the house reef and also on one of the trips offered by the excursion centre. The Turtle trip was incredible, and there is plenty to see around the house reef too. You can borrow snorkelling equipment inclusive of flippers on certain packages. Moving on to the restaurants and bars, we were on the Select All Inclusive package so tried each bar and restaurant, and thoroughly enjoyed them all! Our favourite restaurants were Island Barbeque (the Steak Diane and the flambee pineapple are a must!), along with The Reef for amazing seafood and an incredible setting. We enjoyed all of the bars too but particularly the decking part of Dhoni over the sea, and the Champagne Loft (the service was amazing up there, thank you Rima!). We really enjoyed Palm and Inguru for lunch, it was great to have a la carte options available on the Select AI, and also that these two options had different menus. The food and drink quality was really impressive, and we had really lovely service everywhere we went. We also enjoyed the buffet breakfast every morning, with a good selection of continental, cooked, and an egg station for omelettes/ fried eggs. The island is around 2km long so there is plenty to explore and we enjoyed walking everywhere, but there's also a great buggy service with set stops or for you to flag down as you're walking. Our stay was at the beginning of November and we did have some rain, but this didn't bother us at all. The Laguna bar has plenty of board games, and our beach villa had a covered decking area with comfortable seats and loungers where we could sit and watch the rain pass. Thank you so much to the entire Kuramathi team for making our first trip to the Maldives so special!

Just wow! The most amazing place I have ever been. Perfect from the moment we arrived to the moment we left. We arrived at Kuramathi on July 8th and stayed for 7 nights in a beach bungalow. We booked through Kuoni, flew direct with BA from Heathrow and went for the all inclusive select package. We were advised that July is the rainy season but did not see a single drop of rain for the whole week! Just glorious sunshine(but very humid). The pools and sea were like a warm bath. The service at all the bars and restaurants was second to none! Amazing selection of cocktails and premium drinks included in the package. Favourite restaurants were The Reef and Island BBQ. Best cocktails were at Laguna bar and Sand Bar. Strawberry daiquiris and passion fruit mojitos 🥰. The Sand bank is beautiful, especially at sunset. Make sure you go on the Dolphin cruise, the guides found them within about 15mins they swam along side our boat for along time. It was our first time to Kuramathi and will definitely be returning. Would highly recommend to anyone! Take me back!!

We have just returned from a week at Kuramathi. We travelled as a family of four (two teenagers). Arrival at the airport was easy and transfer to the island by boat was as expected. The boat took just over an hour and the only downside was it was very noisy! Reception is beautiful and we were greeted with a warm welcome, cool face cloth and a drink. We were then taken by golf buggy to our room. We booked a beach villa and I have to say I was really disappointed. The room was dated and in need of some TLC (although it was beautifully clean and had everything we needed). Plus sides of the room were that the bed was exceptionally comfortable and the outdoor shower was lovely too. But overall I felt for how much we had paid we still deserved some sort of wow factor which was totally missing. It wasn’t the start I had hoped for and I wondered if we had picked the right island. But I am pleased to say we absolutely did! I soon forgot about the room when we started exploring the next day. The island is beautiful, and we loved the quiet beaches. The snorkelling was superb and much better than a previous island we went to (and we didn’t think anywhere could have been better than there). Snorkelling off the beach by our villa was amazing and we saw a Sea Turtle on our first swim. The snorkel channels are also great and we particularly liked the snorkel site near the main jetty. It can be quite hard work there on more choppy days but worth it. We saw everything there including bigger black tip reef sharks and lion fish. The buffet was very varied and did the job, would have liked to try other restaurants but on our package they were not included and were very expensive if we had eaten there. The choice of cocktails were superb and we tried many! We liked the laid back vibe in the bars and the live music on an evening. We also liked watching the busy fruit bats whilst at Laguna Bar. Included in the All Inclusive was a sunset boat trip which was stunning, sunset like nothing I have seen before. We also got to see dolphins playing round the boat which was magical. Another must is to walk down the sandbank to watch sunset, beautiful! The sandbank at sunset was also a great place to see sting rays and the reef sharks feeding. So all in all it was an amazing trip, the kids weren’t bored for a second as there is so much to see in the water. My rating of 4 is to reflect the room and I know we didn’t spend much time in there but we did pay a large amount for this holiday and the room was disappointing but if you look past that (or dig deeper for a more expensive room) you will have an absolutely amazing time. We are already talking about when we will go again!
