It takes a bit of effort to get to the Robinson Club, namely an extra flight from Male to the local airport at Kandedhoo (which takes about 50 minutes) followed by a boat trip to the island, but believe me its worth it.
On arrival we were greeted by the Robinson Club staff at the jetty with sparkelling wine and a warm welcome. Check in was easy followed by a nice lunch at the main restaurant overlooking the lagoon, while our room was prepared. We were lucky and upgraded from a Garden villa to a Beach villa which gave direct beach access, the garden villas were in a nice location around island apart from 4 or 5 which were near the watersports centre on an overgrown section which wouldn't have been my choice.
The rooms were excellent and kept in spotless condition, nice lounge area and a riased platform up to a very comfortable bed, deck outside and a lovely outside bathroom with x2 showers (inside and outside rain shower) hot tub and double vanity. The lighting in the rooms could be better, but not a big issue.
The island is kept in pristine condition by the gardeners and beach staff.
The main restaraunt serves breakfast, lunch and dinner to a very good standard, it is buffet service but don't let that put you off, there are individual cooking stations where the chefs prepare the meals freshly for you. There is a 5 course Gala dinner on a friday evening which is waiter service which is a nice change. Das Edel is another restaraunt option at a cost. Drinks are free flowing in the restaurant during meals, with wine by the bottle.
The house reef on the island is the highlight for me, in excellent condition which I hope the island management maintain. They are making efforts in educating guests to help with this. Beautiful beach all the way around the island with a good selection of sunbeds and the pool area is an option as well.
We had a wonderful stay on the island and would recommend it highly.
