And which resort better than Centara Grand Maldives? voted 2 years in row, best family resort in the Maldives. Of great value is their "Ultimate All- Inclusive" package which vacationers at this resort will love. The food,...

Food very average for a 5* resort and I found management to be less interested in guests than they should have been. I also did not...

Excellent resort with superb staff, lovely food and good accommodation. Our water villa was well designed, spacious with an exceptional view! All the staff at the resort were very polite, friendly and professional. We had two fantastic dives during our stay at the resort overseen by the very competent scuba diving team. I would definitely recommend this resort.
