“ Which one is better? One & Only Reethi Rah or Conrad Maldive ”

We are planning a trip to the Maldives for our 10 year wedding anniversary next year, and would like to go to the Maldives and stay in an overwater bungalow - a dream of mine for several years, and we're now able to pull it off. :)
Now,we're going as a couple only, and I know both resorts allow kids. I know Conrad has a separate island that doesn't allow children and they don't allow children in Ithaa, their underwater restaurant - kids under 12 years, anyway...
So, my basic question is which resort is better? ? One and ONly which is beautiful as well as Conrad. I've looked at videos on Youtube of over water villas at One and Only and I've seen photos of the "Deluxe Water Villas" at Conrad - which I think (from the photos, anyway) have a better, unobstructed views of the ocean. One and Only has those blinds that, yes, you can pull up or open, but still a little obstructive.
We're planning on going in Feb or March, and I understand that kids are on holiday during those months - the European kids -...Is One and ONly usually "overrun" with children or does their resort layout provide some privacy?
Also, which resort has the better excursions? I know both offer free snorkeling, kayaks. And, which has the better spa facilities? It's very difficult to decide between 2 incredible properties.
Has anyone out there been to both resorts to give me some tips/advice? I'd sooo appreciate anyone's input, as we'll be traveling from the mid-atlantic, U.S. I know I've asked several questions, but any help is greatly appreciated. THANKS SO MUCH IN ADVANCE!
