Our third trip here as two couples who enjoy diving. We requested a bungalow on the beach and were given 304, 20 yards from the dive school, what could be better. Since our last visit there have been great steps to repair the lagoon wall and these are ongoing, but do not disturb you in any way. I have reviewed... More

The hotel is well run and you feel the staff are there for you. Evening entertainment is low key as you would expect. The fish feeding at 5:30 is not to be missed.

Ellaidhoo proved to be a comfortable, friendly resort that wasn't overly expensive if staying on AI. We chose the location in order to get good snorkelling and good food and Ellaidhoo certainly delivered on both of these.
