Third time visitor to Maldives. Family of four staying in a beach villa, and we where a little worried about some of the early remarks. After having stayed there I must say that they were quite unfair. Some disconnect between staffs around the Island (reception vs the rest) & So many mosquitoes & rats all over the island was perhaps...

Bit late in writing this as we went in September 2014. So will keep it short. Flew with British Airways and all was ok, smooth journey and good service. Arrived in Male where we had a Sea Plane Transfer to Velidhu Island. Upon arrival at the island we were greeted by a manager who walked with us to reception where...

We have been to Maldive a few times, a long time ago. We like small simple typical islands, not too expensive, with good snorkeling and diving so this is why we chose Velidhu. We spent 10 wonderful days and were very happy with our choice! Our children (14 and 11) loved it too. When you decide to travel to the...

I feel sorry for the people who have given this resort poor reviews - obviously something went amiss. This island was pretty much as we expected, having been to similar islands before. There are a few criticisms, but overall had a great experience. First of all, the beach bungalows are in need of updating, as most of them are looking...

We have just returned from 10 nights in Velidhu and we had an amazing holiday - we needed to "switch off" and it was above our expectation - there is nothing fancy about the Island but the rooms are comfortable, staff attentive and we couldn't of been looked after better. The house reef was incredible , we saw different fish...

Just returned from a brilliant two weeks in Velidhu. We had a beach villa which had recently been refurbished (no 122 by the sea plane jetty), it was kept spotlessly clean by our room boy and was comfortable. There are no TVs in the room and plug sockets are the UK type. We snorkelled every day, the house reef is...

I choose this place for my honeymoon, but I made a terrible choice. The island is very beautiful, but in wrong hands. The rooms are not very well equipped and the furnishment is very old, the staff not friendly, you must pay them all the time to receive a proper service and the food served was of poor quality, with...

I spent about 5 days here and as a place to relax it is a good choice. It is mid-range so don't expect luxury. The place is a bit tired and the water bungalow I stayed in had seen better days. It was definitely in need of a refurbishment. The food was OK, again mid range so don't expect gourmet...

We stayed for our honeymoon for a week in an over water Bungalow. We truly felt that we were on a lost island, paradise a million miles away from anyone. We loved it! We were the only Aussies and the only couple who were not german on the whole island which was fine, everyone was great. Even though it was...
