The 2. holiday at velidhu it was wonderful. The bungalow (111) has view on the beach and every evening you could admire the sunset. The generator was to be heard, the float planes didn't bother us (at home is more traffic noise ☺. With all-inclusive is good, if also the cocktails delicious, but it is not the best were. The guests (from kids to senior) came mainly from Germany, but also Austria, Switzerland, Netherlands and France were represented. …  read hotel review

For a 3.5 star island really very good, small island not crowded with very friendly staff. On the island are every day the leaves of women, the morning the island to be brought, on the ways together swept. The rooms although they are getting old but absolutely clean and that is the most important thing, you feel nevertheless probably. It was comfortably furnished. The water bungalows are comfortable, but I would not have it, because there are bungalows an …  read hotel review

It was our first trip to the Maldives and we thought, we could the destination so that tick off. A misconception! We have widerholungsbedarf! Velidhu is a small green idyll! The bungalows are not very modern, but clean and functional. But we wanted to also not always sit inside. The island to orbit takes barely 15 minutes and we asked ourselves constantly, where the other guests were!? Everything is on the small island so much, that you hardly to other holiday-makers meet. The food was varied and good. It was every evening for us sufficiently delicious. Everything is very clean ... and kept clean, even my wife with their sensitive stomach didn't have problems. We were mainly for diving there. The diving school is no bad impression. The rents for the equipment we thought was very overpriced. But we had anyway everything from home with me and we can only recommend. Not at home in tauchshop all rental, the is much cheaper than on site! The tauchpaketen boat trips were not included, okay, the petrol and the boat want to be also paid, but the bootsgebühr per dive to compute. Phew. The limit on rip-off, that we have never experienced that before. The reef of the hotel was very nice and good reachable over a footbridge. Which recommends, at home the nitrox-light make, because it is all the same, whether air or nitrox diving going, the price is the same. Recommended is the manta safari. There is no guarantee not, but we do not have the no mantas and many have gone even larger delphinschulen met. Oh, wlan gives it on Velidhu and that's great! No run with smartphone or tablet rum. That was also for us a wonderful break from the technology! All in all we can the island only recommend, it was our first barfußurlaub and we were very comfortable and the relaxation factor was huge! read hotel review

Property spacious on the island. We had a beach bungalow (number 139) which i can highly recommend. The decor is functional but clean. Here and there is even an ant or even a cockroach in the bathroom around - but we are in the tropics and something nobody can disturb. We had booked all inclusive and the resort was almost written off with predominantly german-speaking guests. Cell phone worked, but wifi is available on the island. The best sms writing - the always worked. read hotel review

    The transfer from male with a water plane takes about 25 minutes and is highly recommended. Sitting on the flight left you can the island photograph. The bungalows are around the island and the distance to the beach is everywhere, and some beach sections certainly nicer (and repeatern are reserved). We were very pleased with our bungalow (139). It was especially quiet - the extra you can hear here less. Shopping was limited to the small store (overpriced). So take everything as possible and as few forget. The evening entertainment repeated every week and is relatively well arranged (crab races found i for still quite funny, but everything is after maximally 30 minutes past).

  • Gastronomy
    5.0

    Therefore, breakfast is for a few days, okay, then, it becomes boring. I was most disappointed. Especially juices are rather artificial (no fresh juices), müslibüfett rather modest, bread basket without big changes. Coffee there not a extrabüfett, but it is served by the waiter. The waiter is for the whole stay the same. Lunch we occasionally have used. It was very delicious and rich - a clear increase for breakfast in terms of quality. Dinner was really great. Scored here the kitchen fully. There was really something for every taste. Curryliebhaber and fish eaters got to their costs.

    The bungalows are very spacious, the furniture older nature and the air conditioning worked (although rather noisy). There is a refrigerator with mini bar (not in all inclusive). You can at the bar but water or soda and take must not every times to the bar, if the thirst to large. The shower is inside and nice large. On the terrace 2 chairs and a table to relax.

    The staff is predominantly very friendly, english was understood (german i Pablo - the guest manager - no spoken). Room cleaning was in order and clean - partly somewhat irregular on days. We had no complaints.

    There is a water sports centre and a diving school. There is also a ping-pong table and several games, as well as a decent library. Per bungalow there were 2 beach chairs and 2 documents, as well as daily 2 fresh towels. Entertainment none - were also not we would have liked. The water sports centre offers great manta snowmobile safaris. Here definitely on the first day, since these often for several days in advance are. Absolutely recommendable.

There are lots of mosquitoes and not enough spraying is done. Insect repellent is useless. The air conditioning is good only in some bungalows, we had an old one and it was very noisy. The reef is good, but some types of fish are missing. We are long-time snorkelers. The complex is well-maintained, each bungalow has its own beach chairs with cushions and the beach towels were changed daily. You can relax. We only missed fish a lot at mealtimes. On the day of departure we were then told that the fishing areas have changed anyway. read hotel review

Perfect holiday

We were on Velidhu for 8 days and it was gorgeous. The arrival by a seaplane is a must, the view during the 25 minute flight is impressive. You can totally relax. (No TV in the beach bungalow, no wireless internet, etc.) The beach is super, the reef was very beautiful (turtles, sharks, sting rays, a lot of colorful fish.). A must is the Manta Safari. a great experience There are 3 baby sharks by the breakwaters - very sweet. Our beach bungalow was always properly cleaned and we did not notice anything in regards to theft. Safes ... are available at the reception free of charge and you do not have to leave everything laying around by you.! Beach towels are available and changed daily. You should bring enough mosquito repellent. Sunscreen is recommended as well (LSF 50). In our opinion, the food was very good and also sufficient. (we are a little picky and found something every day.) The dessert was great, especially the desserts with chocolate.! The waiters were always nice, helpful and courteous. It was a perfect holiday for us. read hotel review

We were for the 2nd time on Velidhu, because of our first anniversary. It was fantastic again! The staff is very friendly and helpful, room boy was very polite. We felt very comfortable because in 2012 we were there on our honeymoon. Next year we will fly again, because there is no better relaxation for us! read hotel review
