We went there for 9 days and opted for the non-inclusive choice. Food was varied, different types of international food were served, together with Indian and Maldivian food. There was also a chef cooking pasta and a salad buffet everyday. Selection of drinks was limited but enough. Rooms were clean, but you could see many tiny insects almost everywhere inside....

I was planning on given this hotel a 4 star review. However, even though the hotel personnel and house reef is really great. I found the hotel lacking too much in other areas.

Ellaidhoo offers just the right mix of luxury and informality. We were looked after fantastically from the moment we arrived. Our room was splendid, with a wonderful open air bathroom, spacious bedroom, comfortable bed and stunning views from the balcony. The food was fabulous—each meal a buffet featuring several different styles of cooking. And a separate pudding room! This is...

The water was very rough on the way out, so if your flight times allow it I would recommend the extra cost for the seaplane! On the way back the water was beautiful, however, and we even saw some...

This was a trip of a life time, The staff were very friendly and so helpful from the staff cleaning the rooms to the staff on reception to the staff serving in the restaurant, nothing was too much trouble. We were in the water Bungaloo and the view was outstanding. I would not hesitate to go again.
