Nice Resort
Nice place to relax. Lots of chairs and hammocks around. Very beautiful water. Couple of beaches to relax on. During low tide, shallow enough for children to play in. The rooms were nice and clean. Keep in mind, you may see occasional ants or cockroachs in them, just how nature works. If that bothers you, bring a can of roach spray (I'm sure most resorts have this issue) Food was average. A mixture of Western Food and local food. Not really that impressed. Water was reasonably priced at 3 USD per 1.5 liters. Staff were good in my opinion. Seperate dive shop on the Island. Didn't dive, but the prices for the snorkel and kayak rentsl were reasonable. Though I realized they overcharged me for a kayak. Pay attention to the prices when paying at the dive shop which is not part of the resort. No coral around the island, it's all been destroyed, so that distracts from the beauty but some fish can be seen.

8/10 Very good

Rooms very basic and smaller than expected (believe they were advertised as 41sqm but appear to be around 25sqm max), hard beds and very dark as you will need lights on even during the day. No sound proofing at all, making you hear every word spoken next door. Not the most relaxing environment. Not a fan of the sharing tables policy which may pair you up with strangers for all meals - seems to be quite common in the Maledives. Food quality and choice is good. The island however and the beaches are beautiful, never feels crowded with plenty of space to lounge around and relax. Amazing house reef for snorkeling as well.

Great budget Maldives resort
I've been to many resorts in the Maldives (I used to work as a professional hotel reviewer), and Embudu Village is easily the best bang for your buck. Pros: AMAZING snorkeling and reef Great Beginners Reef Diving course with good instructor Affordable spa services and excursions (compared to the competition) Beautiful beaches with plenty of shade and privacy Laid back, unpretentious vibe They decorate your bed and table for your birthday (without you having to ask) Rooms now include beach towels Free Wi-Fi Cons: Hard mattress that hurt my back by the fourth day It was often hard to find help at the watersports and dive center SUP boards need new paddles Food is mediocre and desserts are barely edible
