A couple of years since I have been and we were full board. Depending on where you have been before and what you are used to we thought that Iru was very expensive for food so were glad we were on FB. Downside is that you have to use buffet for all meals- if you go HB you can have lunch at either of the two beach bars but not much choice in our opinion. It depends on what you want and how much you would eat really. Buffet was very good with plenty of choice.

With regard to rooms the jacuzzi beach villas are extremely good with plenty of amenaties and right on the beach. If you want to snorkel then water villas are good as the best snorkelling is off the end of their jetty. Obviously you are restricted on your deck with the sun as it moves round.

Hope this helps Lesley

Hello ap80

Not sure when you are heading over there - but Hilton have announced a 50% reduction leading up to Christmas - must mean bookings are slow and you might have the island to yourselves !

Cheers

You've got the choice of four restaurants and three bars on the island if you decide to go B&B.

Hello,

It depends on you choice , If you wish to then you can book HB or FB upon Arrival as well.

If you are on FB then you will be given $40 per person if wish to go for another outlet.

FB will be included in the Main Restaurant which is called Iru Restaurant and offers International Cuisine on five night and Thursday Seafood Buffet and on the Friday day Maldivian Buffet.

Let me know if you need more infor.

Hello All,

That is right they have a 50% offer on the Beach Villa's and Water Villas and all other catergories Stay 7 Pay 5 , They have huge demand and I dont think if you delay you would be able to get villas for the date you wish.

The resort is a huge resort an capable of catering all sorts of clientelle . Even with 85% occupancy a few Months back, You would be wondering where the clients are on the 2.4 km metre white sandy beach.

It depends on how late your international flight is. If you don't have too long, you could ask if the hotel can arrange a city tour for you and then have dinner in Male. If it's a very late flight then most guests book 'day use' rooms at Hulhule Airport hotel.

There are advantages and disadvantages to both options. Male is not the most exciting of places, although I can always happily kill a few hours there. It is nice to be able to relax and swim at the airport hotel before your flight, but it's a little pricy.

Disclaimer - I work for this resort.

I forgot to add that they don't allow you into the airport until 2 hours before your flight is due to leave. When you see the size of the airport you'll see why.
