Just booked for April 2014, can anyone let me know what JWV to go for, would like to see the sunset, which I believe are the even numbers of the 700, but are the rooms looking tired and not been refurbished for a while. Does the all inclusive include the cafe snack bars also?

Many thanks. Tracy

Yes even numbers JWV in the 700's for a sunset. These are older than the newer 300's JWV on Meeru's east side and so no sunset so really 'horses for courses'.

The AI only includes the afternoon tea (which can be taken 24 hours) sandwiches, cake etc. The AI does not include cafe Meeru items (ice cream, panini a, speciality coffees etc.) or the all day dining snack menu (pizza, fries etc.)

Thanks for the info.

When did up you last visit, and are the 700's that old do you know? We're going for a second honeymoon without the children, so not sure whether to opt for the 300's as I know this is not the adult section, not too sure whether this is a place families would visit typically.

Last visits were 2008 and 2009 so not recent, but I know they have not been refurbished since ( both sets of JWV) Meeru has recently focused on refurbing the main pool and additional new Dhoni bar, cafe Meeru etc and upgrading all the beach villas.

In general though most would opt for the 700's due to the adult only villas and adult only restaurant irrespective if they were upgraded or not. Families do visit for sure but are only allowed in the garden rooms or beach villas which are also allocated the family restaurant. The infinity pool by the 300's is an adult only area also.

It's really hard to decide, are the rooms ok though in the 700's, which did you prefer?

The all inclusive does seem strange to not include the other restaurants on site, cafe and only certain drinks, never experienced this with an all inclusive before!? Can you drink in all the bars on all inclusive?

I though this was Dave's thread?!?!

(sorry Dave I can't help on the BVs, as we've only stayed on Meeru for a few days in a JBV. Hopefully you'll get an answer soon)

Dave...BV 201 to 206 by the Asian Wok are requested a lot.

A little set back but no foot traffic and plenty of beach around this tip of meeru (was going to answer earlier but had to go and earn some Maldive tokens ;)

Tracey..The Maldives AI in general is nowhere near as inclusive as say the Caribbean / Mexico. We have found Universal resorts much better than some for AI (Kuramathi, Maafushivaru).

Yes you can drink in all the bars on AI all beverages marked as such in the menu, Asian wok also.

700's are perfectly acceptable, 300's have a better layout apparently.
