I stayed on Holiday Island Resort since 12th of until 21st of March with bookings from Hotels.com with my family. The initial booking was until 15th but due to CoVid-19 outbreak we were forced to stay here. The manager wasn't willing to do any compromise about the room price and we had to pay from 15th to 19th at normal room price. Our international flight was initially on 19th but the flying company rescheduled the flight to 21st. As the Maldivian government required to all resorts to suspend all check-ins, Holiday Resort was unlisted from all hotel bookings sites on 18th and we were enforced to pay directly from the resort at 20% higher rates than at the entire stay here. Another problem was that we booked a room with breakfast included but at the breakfast time, the waiter told us that we have ONLY room paid! I showed the manager the booking number, finally he admitted I was right. The room design is far from a 4 star hotel, rather a 2 star one. Old furniture, A/C doesn't work properly, many small ants all over the room. The beach is not cleaned , many algaes are on the shore. The only positive part of the vacation here were the waiters and the service people, but they are very kind in every island! In the end, avoid this resort if you want stylish design rooms, and not even mention luxurious ones, or come here if you want to ruin your vacation

8/10 Very good

We were not informed that transfer from main airport was not included in price of our stay. When we arrived we had to pay $250 each for round trip flight from Male. This was the only negative experience we had. All inclusive (breakfast, lunch, dinner and alcohol) is $75 per day per person. Alcohol has limited hours 10am- 1am and only select items are part of all inclusive package. This island is beautiful with amazing beaches! Trip to Sun island is free but if you have all inclusive it only works on Holiday island but still highly recommend going. Thai restaurant on Sunday island has the best Thai food we every had! All inclusive food on Holiday island is buffet style and is excellent with different options daily. We went on swim with whale sharks snorkeling trip and actually got to see one which was amazing. Don’t be fooled from what we were told by locals it’s not that common to actually see one. Over all this was a great first trip to Maldives. It ended up being almost double of what we thought would be our cost due to transfer cost and all inclusive. We could have booked a much better hotel for what we ended up spending. Highly recommend comparing prices with hotels that included all that’s mentioned in upfront cost.

This trip was my 22 nd to the Maldives at 11 different locations ,the hotel compared very well with previous hotels I have stayed at .I would say that one of plus factors were the staff , at all levels ,and in particular the house keeping,waiting on , and bar staff. The addition of regional airports helps a lot as sea planes were getting expensive and over crowded with long waits at the terminal, now transfers are quick and convenient.This resort gives an excellent experience of a Maldivian holiday ,at a reasonable price,without lose of standards.The facilities on site are very good with a range of sporting and non sporting options, or you can just spend time on the well kept beaches.i

Great hotel, great staff & amazingly accommodating
I was booked on another island and had to find a room at the last minute. This hotel was amazing to me and my friends. We arrived on the island around 8 am, long before check-in time, and the staff was great to us. Made sure we had a table for breakfast (even though we were not checked in yet) and worked extra to get us rooms as soon as possible, which they did and we had rooms by 11:15am. I cannot thank them enough for how they treated us and for turning the weekend that started off as a trip from hell to a wonderful, quick, getaway. If I ever have the chance to visit the Maldives again I will stay here for sure.

Honeymoon Paradise
We had the amazing opportunity to spend our December 2013 Honeymoon at the Holiday Resort and Spa... Coolly welcomed with a fresh fruit juice! It was the best holiday we've been on by water... From clear waters and white beach sand to a king size bed and ABSOLUTELY PHENOMENAL CUISINE!!! Well worth the money we spent to be there and absolutely cannot wait to go back!
