Many of the main courses were cooked on request and there was more than adequate choice. All the staff, from room-boy to management,...

We booked this island based on the reviews posted on Trip Advisor which on the face of it seemed very positive, however I have to say our impression of having just returned from the Chaaya Reef Ellaidhoo is that maybe a high percentage of these reviewers have NOT been to the Maldives before.
