Amazing family holiday
We had an absolutely amazing time and wouldn’t hesitate going back. The staff are phenomenal and couldn’t be more helpful or friendly. Our 4 year old had a great time in the kids club and playing in the pool. We really couldn’t fault this resort at all.

The staff are exceptionally kind and helpful. The resort has lovely beaches and adequate water activities to keep you entertained. The snorkeling was amazing! The prices for food and drinks should just be inclusive of taxes and service charges rather than the ++ format they use. All deck areas should be thoroughly cleaned as there were a few roaches and lots of ants crawling around in the evenings. The location in the south atoll is also good. They are very well equipped for boat safety.
