8/10 Very good

I loved our stay at Vilamendhoo and would definitely return. The price, island location and access to reef and marine life excursions was great. The food was very good for a buffet as well. Also had a massage with Ayu at the spa and it was life changing. The only thing I would say was lacking a bit was the cleaning service in our water villa and the night life was pretty non-existent. The bar was open 24/7 which was nice but we were really the only ones out past about 11 pm (group of friends). Overall, great experience though!

Sin duda alguna es una de los mejores hoteles en los que he estado, todo esta siempre limpio, las playas son hermosas y muy cuidadas, la comida es muy variada y deliciosa y ni hablar del staff son enormemente amables te hacen sentir como en casa y que quieras regresar nuevamente. Tienes diferentes actividades para no aburrirte y disfrutar de la estadia. Si lo que buscas es un sitio para relajarte y desconectar este es el hotel mas apropiado para ello. Gracias Vilamendhoo por las mejores vacaciones que hemos tenido hasta el momento y quiero resaltar especialmente a las personas del staff Maujhood, Ilham, Mary, Paola y Visham.

10/10 Exceptional

Fabulous hotel and a wonderful holiday. Our second visit (unusual for us), having stayed previously in 2019. Vilamendhoo is an excellent resort that I would wholeheartedly recommend to anyone who wants a relaxed Maldives holiday. We didn't wear shoes for our entire 12 night stay. Food choice and quality is excellent, one of the main reasons we re-booked this year. The buffet is brilliant and the Asian Wok restaurant, plus the teppanyaki table are superb too. Special "shout out" to Paul who made eggs for my wife & niece every day. The was charming and made them both smile each morning. The rooms are very good, clean and comfortable. Beds are good although we did need to ask for a topper to make it a bit softer. All the staff we interacted with were brilliant and really can't do enough to help and make your stay extra special. I was a bit cranky when we arrived after our long journey & they couldn't do enough to help solve a couple of minor irritations (which were my issue, rather than anything to do with the resort). Daniel, the Resort Manager / Assistant Manager also was brilliant is helping me with an error that I had made on our reservation - Daniel if you do read this, thank you so much. Sorting this for us, which was NOT Vilamendhoo's issue in any way, totally transformed our holiday and made it even more special. Thank you. Dive Centre is excellent and the house reef very very good too. Highly recommended.

We had an incredible time at this resort. We stayed in the overwater jacuzzi villas. We enjoyed the privacy, comfort, service and natural resources of this island. The services were very good and the staff so friendly.

We had an amazing holiday. The resort was fantastic, the staff could not of been more helpful in every aspect. The room was very comfortable and the bed linen was of a very good quality, the pillows were so good to sleep on. Food was of a very good quality and also very good choices. The only thing that would of been nice was a little snack (crisp/peanut) with our pre dinner drink but then it would of only added on another kilo or two!! I think we would definitely like to return for another holiday at some time in the not too distant future.
