This was the second time that we had visited Ellaidhoo, purely for the quality of the snorkelling here. I didn’t review after my first visit, it would have been quite scathing as a lot went wrong. However, I couldn’t fault the sea-life and the island...More

We found the WiFi ok, we were able to FaceTime people and also upload videos from our GoPro. Some places were better to pick up the WiFi, couldn’t really get on the WiFi on the beach.

Hi Karen, You can find all the prices via web site, the currency is USD but you’re going to pay all at the check out with one transaction in USD. You’ll need cash only for tip and shopping at the airport. Andrea
