My husband and I stayed at Meedhupparu during Christmas & New Year, the island is beautiful, pure white sand and crystal clear water, our room 263 was perfect, sunshine all day and was the closest room to the sea, just what we requested. The seaplane parks in front of this area and takes off at 7am each morning, this didn't bother us at all however may not suit everyone.

Main Restaruant: Always plenty to choose from, xmas eve gala dinner was just perfect.

Bars: Cafe mass, grill bar - Excellent service from Denis and his staff, always pleased to see us, food amazing, we tried the steak night and Mexican night, also pizza and burgers at lunch time, shame the food wasn't all inclusive however it was very reasonable.

Sunrise bar: We enjoyed late afternoon cocktails served with a happy smile each day from all staff,

Main bar: The main bar was good if you fancied some 80's tunes, live music or disco, Amir always made sure we had a refreshment or 2!

Tips: a small tip goes a long way with the waiter staff, however they do not look for anything, request your preferred room area before travelling, not all rooms are close to the sea, some are at the sea wall however this area seemed really quiet.

We have visited the Maldives twice before Meedhupparu, Meeru & Vialamendhoo, each island has its own special memories for us.

Thanks to everyone at Meedhupparu for making our Christmas & New Year so special. We are already looking at booking this island for our next trip to the Maldives.

We came here in Dec 2013 for our Honeymoon and loved it!

The rooms are cute little beach huts and the cleaners are just amazing, very friendly.

We asked to move to the restaurant next to the main buffet - quieter and more personal, we found the waiters in the normal restaurant uninterested. (However there was a problem when someone used the same utensils to pick up raw sausages and then toppings for the omlettes! He was quite confused when I tried to say it was a bad idea!). Other than that the food is great and you will find something! I know everyone is saying it but it is a shame that you have to pay for fresh fruit juice and the alcohol in your room (now that is expensive!).

We did get a toastie in the bar on the other side of the island a few times, it was nice to have something plain to eat!

The sea plane was amazing :)

A word of warning though - if you are like me and work 60 hours a week in London and are used to being busy all of the time then you will become VERY bored! I am ashamed to say it because I was in paradise, but make sure you bring cards, games things like that (I read 5 books in a week - thank god for the library in the main lounge, i just swapped my books over).

Our rep was lovely (first choice) and was happy to help. We were also very impressed with the manager being there and so hands on!!

The snorkelling was fun, make sure you bring snorkelling grear if you can, as it is quite expensive there - and an underwater camera!!

I think it is an incredible place to go and if I can convince my Mum to go on a seaplane I will be bringing here with me next time :)

Have a lovely time!!

Room Tip: Do ask to be away from the sea wall - It is not any where near as big as people on here make out but it does make a difference being able to walk straight into the sea!!

We stayed in this hotel in November last year; and even though one could imagine much better hotels in the Maldives in terms of the quality or luxury (starting from Adaaran Prestige), this hotel does deserve 5 stars for its excellent value for money.

First of all, the island itself is lovely; it is surrounded by a wonderful coral reef which is very rich even as for the Maldives. it is very close to the shore, as well, so you don't have to swim for miles before you can spot some interesting species. to the contrary - we could see mantas, turtle, eel rays very close to the shore.

rooms are very nicely decorated and spacious; they seem to be newly resfreshed, as well. an outdoor shower is an amazing experience which you have to try while being there. not all the rooms are equally well located in terms of the view but all of them are situated just next to the beach. they are very well maintained - rooms are cleaned up at least twice a day (actually we had the impression that each time we leave our room, it is being cleaned again).

what is really impressive about this hotel is food: there is a huge variety of meals offered in the main restaurant, mostly very tasty ones, so even a very demanding guest (such as a child) can find himself or herself something good to eat. thanks to the amazing desserts, you can be sure to put on weight - most of the times we had problems with deciding between 3 or 4 desserts in the same time and all of them were delicious. apart from that, the hotel offers good pastas, fish and seafood, curry for the Indian dishes lovers, etc... last but not least, the main chef ("big chef") is the nicest guy in the world who always has time to approach you and make sure that you like what you get. also one lady from the reception staff is very nice and helpful.

The hotel has a very nice spa which is absolutely worth visiting; we tried some treatments and were very satisfied with them. there are few boutiques in the hotel so you can buy anything that you need. the hotel also has a nice pool with a pool bar.

Wifi works only in the main bar and the reception area - you cannot connect to the Internet from your room. however, it works pretty well.

Overall, this is a very nice, well maintained hotel which is offered at a very reasonable price.

We returned this week from our first trip to the Maldives. We went with friends who had selected Meedhupparu and who are regular visitors to the Maldives.

We could not have wished for a better island to experience the wonders of the Maldives and will be booking again next year.

Key points to share;
Accommodation - we were in 139. Our doors opened right in front of a beautiful view of the sand and sea. The room boy was excellent and our room was always clean and refreshed with towels and water. Our friends emailed ahead with our request of where we wanted to be situated, North West of Island and this did not disappoint us. Outside shower was fantastic and one we used every day. Walking around the Island, this is by far the best situation as further round is a broken coral mixed with sand beach which is hard on the feet and it is advised to wear flip flops on this, view still very beautiful. To the other end of the Island you were nearer to the entertainment where although this finished at midnight this could be disturbing.

This was our first time snorkeling and so nothing to compare to, however all I can say is my husband was so amazed by the sites both around the Island and on an excursion to see mantra rays. We were blessed to see dolphins, turtles, reef sharp and lots of colored fish a first for us!

Food was good, a wide range of cuisine, Chef Guru came to us daily to ensure we were satisfied or if we have an specific requirements, Very good service. Our waiter was Rashed, who was professional, friendly and polite. He got to know what we drank and he never disappointed us!

Entertainment was a duo who could do with a review, at times he was out of tune but the woman was brilliant, this was in the main bar. We did not venture into the main bar after dinner as we went to the sunset bar to play games. We had two regular barmen, Biju and Sumit who kept us topped up with beverages and tools to play our games. Again these staff are a credit to the island and really do enhance your stay.

We also got to know one of the barman Amir who liked to be called "Stevie Gerrad" He again took the time to work out your regular tipple and ensured he was ready for a replacement drink before you were out. Again a nice touch to your stay.

All staff are really friendly and polite, all say hello and smile, a credit to the Island.

Only recommendation is that there is consideration to the provision of sunbed cushions, You have to make your own comfort and ours was using the cushions from the veranda chairs. Having a bad back this was a necessity for comfort. I would have no issue paying for a mattress but none were on offer.

Overall this was a really memorable experience that we fortunate enough to share with friends. I have nothing negative to say about this island or the holiday and we will be returning next year.

I would also like the comments we have posted about certain staff members to be fed back to them as they were truly exceptional.

Room Tip: Go for rooms North West of Island 136 - 160
