Relaxing stay
Superior ocean view room was modern and more spacious than expected. Managed to see dolphins swimming nearby on some mornings. Staff were very helpful. Resort is overall well maintained. Snorkelling on the beach lagoon was amazing - many variety of fish were seen.

The resort was nice and wasn't packed as I expected. We were upgraded to a bungalow suite on our first night, then back to a regular bungalow after. The suite was so nice and clean. All in all it was a great resort. Food wasn't that good though. Meats were all over cooked and buffet style. Cheaper to order room service and better ala carte options. Staff were nice, but English is limited. Bring ketchup packets if you don't like banana ketchup (or they call it tomato sauce).

Everyone was really happy and pleasant to deal with. The Dive and Sale team …awesome. The bar and restaurant staff …awesome. The cleaning staff…awesome. Now up front can be a little more friendlier they don’t match the friendliness of the rest of the resort.

Relaxing and peaceful Dhonveli!
This resort is extremely well-managed. You never feel crowded, it's clean, rooms and beds are very comfortable. Although there were children, chalets are far enough apart, that there was never any noise or disturbance. Also the food was very good and guests were comfortably spaced. Special events were so kindly prepared and no detail was forgotten. Will come again, thank you Dhonveli Team!

Excellent Stay!
I highly recommend Cinnamon Dhonveli and would definitely stay there again! Communication with the hotel about the boat transfer was very good. I rented a superior room, which was very sizeable, modern, and clean. It even had a balcony over the small beach. The beach was lovely, and it was great to be able to snorkel and see all kinds of fish right off the main beach. The beach bar was excellently attended by Rafiqul. The buffet was pretty good. I found the stir fry stations (Siri was great!), and the more local food (e.g. fish, dhal, curries, etc.) to consistently be the best options. The Sunset Bar and Pasta Point Bars had gorgeous views of the sunset. All the servers were top notch, especially Geena, Dilshan, Dileepa, and a few others I am forgetting (Usi? at the Pasta Point Bar). The entertainment was quite fun and a great way to meet other guests. The DJ was great! Hussein and the lady who helped at reception (name started with "Dh," but I have sadly forgotten to write it down) were excellent at assisting in all of my questions. The turtle scuba and spa (stress relief massage) were also excellent! Tips: Bring you own snorkel gear. I found the best time to snorkel off the beach was right after breakfast. Reserve beach/pool chairs early. People tended to leave towels and a personal item to show the chair was reserved.

It was truly a dream vacation! We stayed in an over water bungalow and spent most of our time in our room/ on our deck. We snorkeled from the room & I'm glad I read a review before going because we brought water shoes (I have Teva sandals that worked perfectly). The whole island is made up of coral so I highly recommend you bring something for your feet! There is sandy parts of the beach if you don't but if you want to explore the water a bit more shoes for sure. We surfed & went jet sking as our activities. The staff at both places were wonderful. Our waiter at the restaurant was always so nice & helpful. Honestly, it was the best. Definitely go here!

This place has everything you need for a nice relaxing vacation. I stayed at the property for 6 days and felt like the amount of time was just enough to enjoy everything without getting bored at any point. Me and my wife stayed in the overwater bungalows which was nice. After my first night there was no hot water but I was fine with that being that it's very hot over there. I will say the only thing that was not my favorite was the food. Good variety and options, but if i had to rate. Breakfast 5/10 Lunch 6/10 Dinner 7/10 Also, the one thing i can definitely say I did not like was the "snacks" which are available during the hours in between meals. The snacks had close to no options, were mostly fruits and we're not great. I basically ignored snacks during my stay. Now a few people that stood out to me during my experience was Rafiqul at the beach bar, Haroon who'm would clean the rooms and our server Mohamad at the restaurant for the overwater bungalows and lastly Jannah at check in and check out. they were all great. All in all after bargain hunting as much as I could at the time, I feel I got what I paid for. I would overall give this place a 8/10.
