We have just returned from Olhuveli- poor value for money, especially the food. This was often re-hashed leftovers, and mostly, it was overcooked. Drinks were over-priced and it was impossible not to buy water at 4$ a bottle. Coffee was undrinkable. Restaurant food also over-priced. Staff were friendly and Abdullah our waiter was wonderful. The nurse comes in for special...

This was our first Maldives trip - we used tripadviser to help us choose which place to visit. We flew BA (still my favourite airline) and it was v comfortable with choices of films and tv programmes to watch on individual screens. There is a boat transfer from the airport which I found a bit bumpy and wished I had...

This was our 2nd stay in the Maldives. Previously stayed at Anantara, which I felt better. We stayed in a Beach villa at Olhuveli. 1) Outdoor...
