Italian animation, my wife speaks Italian and I don't care much about animation. My wife loved Erika's aquagym, legs, abs and buttock exercises, etc. Most staff speak good English and Neva also speaks excellent German, so it is not a problem for non-Italian speakers, provided you dont expect to be the center of social life, which of course is mainly Italian. The food is excellent, if simple, home style curries, fish and meat dishes.
Arranging the transfer from Male airport was difficult and took ten emails and numerous phone calls. I would recomment skipping the Italian travel agency that owns Dhiggiri and booking the airport transfer directly with Maldivian Air Taxi, or alternatively booking the Italian package directly (just search Dhiggiri in google) and flying from Rome.
The bungalows are beautiful and cleaned twice a day - there might be the occasional ant, but nothing major. Snorkling is good, we saw numerous rays, sharks, seaturtles every kind of colourful fish imaginable, an awesome experience, not further away than thehouse reef. Staff is jovial, but will leave you alone if you just want to relax. "Local staff" always smiling and friendly. Check out the photos on tripadvisor, it really is that nice! We did not regret booking here and would definitely come again.
Internet 7 USD per 14 minutes
There is cell phone reception, so you can send sms or make a phone call from your own phone
Water 4.50 USD per 1.5 liter bottle (we only bought one bottle in 8 days, as water is for free in the restaurant and at the bar)

Snorkling trips: 90 USD for 6 trips. Don't miss the night snorkling with sharks and rays, its fantastic!
Decent cocktails all inclusive. White wine is atrocious, but they serve mineral water to shpritz it .Do not come here for the free wine or you will be disappoint...Free beer is OK
