...Crystal-clear turquoise lagoon with sparkling white sandy beach - only tens of meters away from our bungalow, tucked away in a lush tropical vegetation... This is as closest one can imagine paradise on earth and this is exactly what we got in Holiday Island Resort. It is on Dhiffushi island in southern Ari Atoll, some 30 minutes away from capital...

The island very nice and beaches are excellent but hotel need urgent facelift. Staff are very polite. All inclusive foods are poor. Bungalows are very small and simple. The furnitures very old. The general level is lower then two star hotels.

Beautiful island to visit. Great all round service. As a guest we used lunch buffet, which we can only recommend. This is unique place where come you come to peace in a fantastic ambient. The souvenirs is a bit overpriced in our view. Choice of drinks is excellent. Entry fees is 25 usd for non-residents which is perfectly ok

We went to Holiday island from 9 to 12 January for our honeymoon. In short, we absolutely LOVED everything about the hotel. We had a really hard time leaving, and would have considered staying there for a longer time. The service was impeccable, the staff really friendly and helpful. Everyone greets you and tries to help you, and you don't...

The more over-rated hotel I have sean in my whole life. The worst service ever. The food is terribly and the hotel is truly old and neglected. There is not wifi in the rooms and common areas, even paying. Not at all! The hotel is totally desolate and decadent without any customer service. I would definitely not recommend this hotel...

Disappointed at several levels: the whole structure is old and would require renewal. Perhaps not so important at the Maldives, but wifi is only available at the bar, food was acceptable, but boring: always the same stuff at breakfast and at the evening buffet In the other hand the employees showed goodwill and were helpful and kind

This is a good hotel on calm small island with good sea and beach. We spent great time here. Food in restaurant is good as well. It is better to order 3 times meals as there is really no other place to eat. Dinner for 2 persons without drinks costs $50. Staff is very friendly. There were almost no russians....
