What's not to like about ELlaidhoo? The island is stunning. The service from staff is impeccable. The buffet breakfast, lunch and dinner provides such a variety. Snorkelling is fantastic and is to die for. The surf shop hires out hand held water scooters which was very reasonably priced and a lot of fun. The water is crystal clear and a...

We had ready many reviews prior to our trip to Ellaidhoo so arrived unsure as to what we had let ourselves in for! This is our 7th time in the Maldives and our 6th different island. We were very pleasantly surprised. Yes there are parts that need updating but you must remember this is little island in the middle of...

This was seriously the most beautiful water-related location I have ever been in in my life! It was so unbelievably gorgeous, I felt like I was in heaven.

Beautiful island and very nice water bungalows with great views. Excellent dive centre. However, that is where the good part ends. It's a badly managed resort. The staff are very good but they have their own limitations set by the management. The food and the variety was poor- same old stuff daily and extremely boring. Whilst the chefs did whatever...
