Close to male airport.. excellant location, Buffet, Beaches, We saw flock of dolphins close to beach & baby shark in crystal clear waters, Wi fi works great in rooms. _overall awsome resort_
No complimentary water sports, along with room. They should include life jackets, goggles, tubes etc alongwith room. U have to buy all this stuff from souvenier shop that is quite expensive. Over priced excursions and food. A kid of 2.5 yrs is charged 100 dollars a day (without extra bed) and also charged for food, how much can a kid eat?
Transfer is very expensive and schedules to the island are not enough, we had to wait 3 hours for the next boat.
Its near to male air port 15 min speedboat
Tax on every thing
to many notifecation
Everything was great, resort, facilities, staff, weather and island. It was very quiet and relaxing. No screaming children or loud parties, just what you need to relax. And an amazing nature with all sorts of birds or fishes)) Thank you.
After ordering room service, waiter told us to leave the tray behind the door. Later cleaner told us that he will make a call so that someone will pick up the tray, because otherwise they will forget. He called but this tray was there for few days and no one cleaned it up. Maybe communication problems.
very helpful friendly staff! Many activities and recreational programs inside the resort! Food buffet has variety and its excellent! location is close to the airport! professional photographer!
high prices of drinks and the prices are in additional to tax and service charge! lizards and ants can easily come to the toilette in the beach villas
Surroundings of course. Beautiful island, very nice and accessible house reef. Staff was friendly and the jacuzzi huts we stayed in were great.
Well, somewhat expensive, especially the Thai Restaurant.
the beach , the people and the whole atmosphere
some bugs and small riptiles in the outside area of the beach villa
Close to Male,only 20 mins by speedboat.Crystal clear waters,white sandy beaches,helpful staff,sands bar,sundowners bar,sea breeze cafe all great places to eat & have drinks.Wonderful breakfast at the Gallery restaurant every morning.Deluxe rooms are very spacious,huge bathrooms.Great Pool Area.
Prices a little higher than expected.Had to wait 6 hrs for our rooms.No water in the bathrooms one night for a few hours.
Diving Center amazing.
The coffee at The Gallery Restaurant .
-fantastic food -perfect beach -... just like a dream
-only critic I have is the coffee at the breakfast and the giant generator to produce the electric power
position of the island bungalows tremendously comfortable food was great
- staff was sometimes rude - food really xpnsve - 1beer=6usd!!!
The resort was excellent. The staff friengly and extremely helpful, the room spacious, clean and very comfortable, customer service second to none and the speedboat transfers to and from the airport were amazing. We are not fans of buffet lunch or diners so stayed on a bed and breakfast basis. However, with hindsight this was a big mistake as the alternative meal options were a somewhat limited and quite expensive in comparison. The resort does offer half-board, full-board and all-inclusive meal plans any of which are certainly worth considering. As one woud expect, activities and excursions were centred around watersports and boats so plenty to see and do. Its also a great place to do absolutely nothing at all if that's your thing.
I have no negative comments about the resort itself; facilities and prices were as expected for a resort of this quality. However one excursion, a tour of Male, fell well short of expectation. Male is a very small place and there isn't really anything of great cultural or historical significance to see. The tour appeared to be little more than a brisk stroll, the aim of which was for the tour guide to get you to one or two local souvenir shops in an attempt to get the tourist to buy some extremely overpriced junk in return for which the guide no doubt receives a commission. If you want to pay US$18 for 250g of bite-sized milk chocolates be my guest, otherwise this is one to avoid.
-big choice of activities (snorkeling with sharks and turtles) -great for relaxation -free wifi almost everywhere on the island
it gets kind of claustrophobic after a while
Great value, excellent scenery, truly great stay.
Staff on day trips weren't amazing and the island photographer was kind of rude.
Almost everything: clean beaches with white sand, clean and warm sea, snorkeling, kindness of all the staff, silence, food...
Prices don't include taxes, which are 18%
everything , weather , location , place , staff , accommodation, activities , swimming pool
price specially rate for kids (2-11) is very high ... plus the cleaning need inhansment .
Excellent customer service. Friendly and helpful staff. Helped to organise a surprise birthday dinner for me on the beach. Couldn't do enough for us. Our beach hut was stunning. Food was fantastic. Dive center brilliant. Amazing house reef.
No real night life.
The people there is polite and nice. Join the night fishing and kuda BBQ is the best excursion I had experience it.
The breakfast variety not much, the environment not so clean. The dry leaf no one to clear it.
Location a short hop of roughly 15 - 20 mins from Male. Lots of fish to see when snorkeling. The beach houses are fantastic the outside bathrooms and jacuzzis are fabulous. A big shout out to Sampath (reception), Mohammed (house keeping beach hut 129) and the manager of Sea Breeze.
The choice of food was limited and the cost of $54 and $60 per person to have lunch / dinner (respectively) was rather exorbitant. Need to have enough life jackets for the amount of people on rough sea days. Maybe have life jackets in each room for the number of guests. The manner of a minority of staff need to be looked at some need customer service training but they are in the minority, the majority of the staff are courteous and polite and always have a friendly smile on their face. The weather (of course not the islands fault lol) was not the best when we visited on 18th - 21st August 2014.
Great food , location , clean , staff all is the best .
Excellent resort. Very friendly and efficient staff, well maintained facilities. Variety of activities. Dive bandos is highly recommended. The restaurants and bars are stocked with a proper blend of international dishes - Beautiful!
Everything on the island is pretty expensive
The range of water sport activities available
The staff at check-in leaving us seated for an hour, and not progressing our chec-in when prompted. total of 2hr check-in which was mostly self-iniated because I did not trust the bar staff to help me with the process. The cleaner spoke little english, could not even say his name in english, just pointed at name bar and insisted on kicking us out of our room at 6pm at night to clean our room and after closing the door on him he still insisted to atleast sweep which we did not want to be bothered and cound not understand this. Staff should learn basic mannerisms to not bother people when they insist for them to go away. Being charged for drinks/food which I did not sign and them not accepting the signature on the back of my bank card as evidence to prove it was not me thjat bought said food.
