Though the Elaidhoo Maldives was not perfect, I was able to get an overwater bungalow with full board at a very nice hotel for less money than a simple room at many competing hotels, and I left my Maldivian experience very happy. Logistics The hotel is located either 80 minutes from Male by speedboat or 20 minutes by seaplane. The...

In a nutshell, if you want to visit the Maldives without the ridiculous price tag, experience some of the luxury lifestyle the Maldives offers and mainly want to snorkel/dive, then Ellaidhoo is for you. The pros; 1. Great house reef which allows for spotting some great marine life. We saw Reef Sharks, Turtles, a pod of Dolphins, Mantas and lots...

A stay that fell somewhere between satisfactory and good. Our destination being the Maldives we expected wonders but our expectations were quickly checked against reality. Upon arriving, we were forced to wait upwards of an hour for our pre-booked hotel transportation due to a "technical issue" with the boat. And yet, as soon as the last couple who was scheduled...

We have been home from Ellaidhoo for nearly 3 weeks now and I am still in withdrawal from the fabulous house reef. It has taken a while to write this review as was not sure what to say. Let me start by saying that we had a fab holiday, we have been to the Maldives four times previously and stayed...

This is a beautiful island to completely relax on. The staff are very friendly including Jo, Kelly, Yankee and Sharma. The food is great with lots of options. The drinks on the premium package are much better than the standard all inclusive. A massive variety of sea life can be seen when snorkelling, we saw a shark and a stingray...

Just come back after spending a week at the Hotel. Absolutely brilliant place. Great for relaxing if thats your style but if you love snorkelling or diving well its one of the best places on earth. Recommend the beach bungalows as they are right on the beach or the water bungalows which are beautiful. Service is great and very friendly...

Terrible experience on this island. We had booked a Superior room which turned out to have no sandy beach leading into the water. Only a small section of the island had sand leading into the water only concrete walls which destroyed the view.We upgraded our room to a beach bungalow which had the sand which cost extra. We have been...

Coming from the Philippines, I'm quite spoiled with beautiful white and powdery beaches. The service was as expected, people are great, but it was nothing out of the ordinary and nothing above and beyond. The sand quality was okay, service was okay, rooms were okay. Although I have to note that I did make special arrangements with them to arrange...

We had the beachfront bungalow 304 and after 2 weeks there we consider it probably the best location on the island. You walk out onto a spacious, yet private beach and the reef starts about 20m in front of your chaise longue. The variety of under water life is amazing and the views breathtakingly beautiful. The staff is super friendly,...
