This was our 5th trip to the Maldives, and the second with our two (6year old) boys. It was the first time we'd been to this island. Stayed 6 nights in a beach villa and 3 in a family water villa. Each has their own advantages and disadvantages - beach villa has 2 toilets and 2 showers but is semi...

This was our second island holiday and we were told truly amazing stories about the Maldives. Well, we tested it ourselves and choose an excellent family resort. The service was extraordinary, especially the friendliness bestowed by the waiters towards our children. The reef in front of our water villa was mind blowing - the sealife is out of this world...

We had a wonderful stay at Centara this June. We have lovely memories which we will keep forever. The reason why we chose Centara was because it is a family resort. I have a 9 year old boy who needs to be occupied. Although the Kids Camp was more catered towards younger children my boy still had a lot of...

Was worried we had set our hopes to high reading all the reviews, we were not disappointed. Yes some of the reviews on the room condition are correct but it's the tropics and mainly timber decay which they were working on while we were there, everything else was fine, clean rooms, plenty fresh towels, quality toiletries, great turn down service...

The Maldives is an expensive hobby. Once you have been all you dream about is going back!!! We tend to agree with all the positive comments other reviewers have made about the resort. We specifically searched out a resort with an all inclusive plan so that they would not be constantly worrying about what a final bill would be, we...
