  • 6.0.Good

    I loved food at the Krystal restaurant. That was the only night that I had the best experience at this resort. Everything else was mediocre at best. Reception staff appears confused and incompetent in resolving simple tasks. Due to Covid they require all reservations in specialty restaurants to be done through them but they are not forwarding reservation changes to restaurants. Restaurants don't want to accommodate until you make a fuss with reception and then they are apologizing and not trying to resolve the issue but stating how they didn't do nothing wrong and that reservation is how it is. When they finally accommodate you, you have lost your appetite and just want to eat and leave the restaurant, Steakhouse in this case. Also instead of mustard they tried to give me curry for my hamburger. I was really done with them at that point. Room service choices are also something to be desired. Food is mediocre and there are no choices. Bread is stale and tasteless. So pass on it. Buffett choices are same everyday for breakfast, lunch and dinner. You are not allowed to get any drinks from the bar either with your dinner. Fortunately I was there 4 days only and I enjoyed the sun and water from my terrace. But that is all I came for to relax and at the end I did. Just some things definitely need improvement, reception staff especially

    Paradise in the Maldives!

    Modern, comfortable resort, with excellent food at the buffet restaurant. The chefs accommodate those with vegan or vegetarian diets. Unlimited specialty drinks and snacks available all day at either of the two swimming pools. Very good dive center with clean and modern equipment. Rooms and villas are spacious, kept spotlessly clean, and very comfortable. A paradise in the Maldives!

  • 8.0.Very good

    We had a blast the staff was great and the view was amazing. However, there was a small issue with the back and forth transportation and the room service food wasn’t so good. Other than that everything was perfect ...rooms the staff/people was extremely professional and courteous. The food at every dinner and main dinner was great. And the view and area was heaven on earth.

    A remarkable well run property. The staff is above outstanding. The property is immaculate. The room was better than advertised. The food is incredible. The beaches and pools are kept at incredibly high standards. There isn’t one thing they can improve on. Everything just works. Please visit the sports bar. It’s open 24 hours a day and each bartender has his own unique fun drink to try. An incredible experience under unusual (covid) circumstances.
