"Great stay, relaxing"
We stayed 9 days at the club (beachview house) and we really liked it. After we arrived at Male, we were directly brought to the domestic terminal and then went for a 70 minutes flight and afterwards for a 40' Mins transfer via boat. When we arrived some drinks were served and the entire staff was very friendly, always had a smile on their face. We are not typical club visitors, meaning we were searching for a quite relaxing place, good sport possibilities (gym was really great) and good food. Everything was fulfilled. Especially the great sea food (still dreaming of the tuna sashimi) and the indian food (very good butter chicken with some vindaloo inspirations :) were highlights. In the clubs there have been 60% asian people and 40 % european people, in the summer itself more europeans are there. We also liked when Seth came around at the beach with some exotic fruits or champagne. Snorkeling with Romy was great. Overall: great stay (we will come again), but don't expect every hour entertaining program as in other clubs. (We didn't needed this, so everything was great) Suggestions for things to optimize: Internet connection was rather slow Some more sport courses (eg more hot iron etc., the courses itself were really good) At least two bottles of water in the rooms per day
We had an amazing honeymoon vacation in Robinson for 2 weeks! Wow it really was brilliant. We recommend the club to new comers! The staff are amazingly helpful and make you feel welcome with a smile and a positive attitude. The prices are very reasonable compare to Maldive results. Overall we appreciate the brilliant service we received and a special thanks to the front of office team Mr Osman and his assistant arianti.
"Excellent vacation !"
We have been staying in this hotel from the 20th to the 30th August and have experienced a very good journey there. Here are the two main reasons for this : - The atoll on which the hotel is based allowed us to enjoy the typical "maldivian dream", considering its very well preserved natural state and mind-blowing beauty. From our beach bungalow, it was possible to reach the coral reef almost immediately and observe a luxuriant and magnificent aquatic fauna. Among many other species, turtles and sharks of the reef appeared frequently. Beyond the sea, its turquoise and limpid water, the rest of the island was also totally beautiful and perfectly clean. - The food was excellent and varied, which was especially surprising from an All-inclusive club, furthermore as it is cut off of the world in the middle of the Ocean. Thereby, I guess that the logistics behind the club are impressive. Among other positive points, we can mention the beauty of the chamber rooms and the activities held to entertain the guests, though they were more "common". - Indeed, the bed and pillows could have been more comfortable and rust was more present than acceptable in the bathroom, in which, moreover, some equipments looked antiquated as they were threatening to collapse. - Regarding the activities, they were fine but could have been much more sophisticated and diverse, especially when it comes to animation. Evening parties put aside, we only had the opportunity to participate to a little party held at the pool in 11 days. Consequently, during the rest of the day, the atmosphere was quite "dead". Other elements which prevent this hotel to reach perfection are the following, according to us : - One major drawback : almost every day, starting at 6 pm, we experienced a bad smell of oil on the island, and nearly got caught in one huge cloud of dark smoke twice, when we were coming back to our room at the beginning of the evening. It seems it was made by a chainsaw or other garden-related stuff. I can't believe other methods could not be used and found this really surprising, regarding both the health of the customers and the pollution on the island. - You are limited to 2 or 3 bottles of water per day in your room. It is strange to be rationalized on such an elementary thing as water, especially in an All-inclusive. - The quality of the service was sometimes an issue. Globally, it was varying a lot from a member of the staff to another. Some of them did obviously everything they could to please the guests (like Osman, Wiwick, or two Sri Lankan guys - whose we don't remember the names - among others), while others did not manage to give a smile, botched their work or didn't even understand the most basic English words. For instance, it was sometimes long and difficult to get what we wanted because people who didn't really speak English were sent to answer our queries. About the lack of sympathy, I remember one Asian woman at the reception who didn't say any kind word or "thank you" during the check-out and ended it with a dry "good night". Fortunately, the managers caught this up with a little departure ceremony when we left... - We were lucky to enjoy 8 on 11 days of good weather, but the 3 last days were partially wasted by heavy rains. Of course, this is not the fault of the hotel, but it had nothing to offer, as alternative activities, than baby foot, billard and one movie. People who have the bad luck to experience bad weather during the most part of their stay should really feel that they wasted their money. - Finally, a lot of "extra" were out of the All-inclusive formula, and it could explain the "dead atmosphere" I mentioned, as the real service seems reserved to guests who would pay even more than they already did... Now, you could think "well, that's a lot of comments for a 5/5 stars review". But we are assessing our global journey, which was indeed excellent, and the price-to-quality ratio of the hotel. Indeed, we got it with an agency which provided us a beach bungalow at a discount, Should we have paid 700$ less for a garden bungalow in the dark and in the middle of nowhere, or 8000$+ for a villa on stilts relatively far from the corals and placed in an area of strong streams, would we have not been so happy about it. In addition, we can only guess that it is very difficult to run such a hotel in the middle of nowhere. Then, we choosed not to be obsessed by details and enjoy the landscape before everything else. In summary, this hotel provides a democratic and effective way to discover the very expensive holidays destination that the Maldives usually are. Just be aware it is a club nicely situated with good food and not a palace with irreproachable service. One last comment : be advised that the trip is not for the faint hearted and that the domestic means of transport look precarious, especially in case of bad weather. Moreover, the politics of the Maldives is instable and very repressive. Do your own researches and be ready to fully accept every risk before your departure. Pauline & Laurent
"Perfect relaxation in paradise!"
Beautiful island with a great resort and a lot of privacy. Stayed in a beach bungalow with 2 children. Snorkeling directly off your beach, 5 minute walk to the diving base as well as to the main restaurants/bars. Sensational sundowner and great food at top quality, great variety of food from European to Asian and never boring. Very relaxed atmosphere, nice guest community and always passionate and extremely friendly staff. Music at night at the bar but never disturbing as it was quiet when you left the bar area. Perfect holiday! Should be on every bucket list. Highly recommended.
"Gorgeous!!! - But, But, But and But..."
It ought to be said, out right, that the place is indeed gorgeous! Our Water Bungalow was spacious, as well as its terrace, directly on the waterfront, which we enjoyed a whole lot. Members of staff are kind and attentive (especially during food service). The food itself is fabulous and lives up to the promise of 'freshly made'. There is a huge variety to choose from during the day (for breakfast and lunch), for dinner the menus change on a daily basis, ensuring that your stomach never gets bored. However... First 'But' - Management Attitude. On two occasions we were faced with a less than pleasing attitude from the side of the management of the island. The first one was just upon our arrival. After the official niceties and bubbly, we were handed our room keys and a voucher for the spa worth 15 minutes of free treatment or 10% off the catalogue prices, to be used within the first 3 days of stay. However, since we arrived quite late and after the spa's closing time, we were informed by receptionist that we had already forfeited our first day to use the voucher and hence we ought to use it within the next 2 days only. Needless to say that the attitude defeated the purpose of the voucher to lure us in to the spa and also showed that the management thinks that the resort need to apply the same rules as a general supermarket chain issuing discount coupons. Second 'But' - During our stay we had 2 planned power outs on the Island. The first one was fairly short but the second one was 2 and half hours long and included the water supply. On the days of the power outage, apart from the note we got to our room, nobody cared to offer water for the time of the outage, place extra water bottles in the room 'just in case' or inform the guests where water may be obtained during the outage. We just had 'to suck it up' and continue enjoying our stay, as the note (which included numerous spelling mistakes) said. Third 'But' - This is a German resort and majority of the European guests are German. Hence, be prepared for a stampede towards the tables as the floodgates to the restaurant open. Even the local staff were shocked at the behaviour. That being said, and in order to avoid this shameful behaviour, it would be wise to have a 'please wait to be seated' sign, like in a lot of other places around the globe. Forth 'But' - Noise Level. We had a Water Bungalow for our stay, which meant that we were a part of the night entertainment, whether we wanted or not. We had a North-West facing bungalow and could hear the band as clearly as we would have been at the bar itself. We don't know how is the situation in the bungalows facing the other side, but we can guess that the sounds were all very audible in bungalows standing on our row. Therefore, even though we enjoyed our time on the island, the issues described here will make us think long and hard about whether we'd want to return here or try something else...
