          We had a great 4 days at the resort, were able to rest and relax as we had been traveling so much up to this point. The staff were incredibly friendly and informative in my opinion, were always prepared to help with a smile.

          The breakfast was included for us and had enough variety it was always a great way to start our day. We stayed on the beach as opposed to the water suites and found them to be comfortable and quiet. The staff cleaned them each day and very respectful of our privacy, yet always managed to get the job done.

          My only complaint, would be that one night we decided to visit the spa for a massage and were given a choice of massage oils each. My girl chose one and I chose another, now I am 42 yrs old and have never had an allergic reaction once in my life until this visit! I chose some muscle relaxation oil and had a great massage, unfortunately in the morning my whole body was covered in red bumps / rash. I took us a while to figure it out but this was the issue - my complaint is I asked several times to find out what that was I used but still was not told - not really for the fault of anyone in particular but it would have been nice to know for future reference.

          The worst part is it made me stay out of the crystal clear waters and the sun....so for three days I stayed in the shade or in our room....and as far as it was to travel to and as expensive as it is to get there I was disappointed not being able to dive, jetski or even walk on the beach without itching like a madman! Otherwise 5 stars!

          A group of eight of us went for a three-night tour of some dive sites south of Male on the good ship Felicity - apparently the only wooden safari boat in the country.

          Despite a bewilderingly absolute lack of organisation at the start of the cruise - which had its nadir/acme when our dive master, Shaffy, excused the lack of dive gear on the boat with a shrug of the shoulders and an explanation that he had deleted, as soon as he got it, the email in which we had outlined ...

          ... old boy at heart! I was actually happy to get in the water...it was hot out there!

          We discovered the tuna burger on the lunch menu a couple of days into our stay here and split it everyday during lunch. It costs the same here for a hamburger as a tuna burger and it was a huge piece of tuna...it would cost at least $30 for the filet at Whole Foods back home. So after paddle boarding, we had our tuna burger by the beach and had a low key afternoon. We ...

          Steve and I spent the full day,with a few other lucky souls, on a boat snorkeling the various atolls. This was OMG...the BEST SNORKELING EVER!!!!!!!!! dropping us off at one end of a atoll, as we floated with the tide for about a mile and were then picked up at the other end to find another site. The atoll was covered with beautiful coral and at the edge of each reef, was a cliff where you could see ...
