Help me decide...

Can you super Advisors give me some help on deciding where to stay?

We are flying from Bham, 7 nights, September, All Incl (as I drink tonnes of water and am worried about the cost of this). We are looking for a beach bungalow and some activities. We are not massive snorkelling enthusiasts but would like the option.

We are thinking from the following:

- Kuredu

- Villamendhoo

- Meedhupparu

- Embudu

Can you give me pros & cons for the above please to help us decide....

Thanks

Spammie, crikey, that was very un-Spammieish!

" the island your hairstylist and gardener have been to".

And I thought it was we Brits who were snobbish! :-))

What happened to the option of Reethi Beach?

Better food than Vila, you are not over concerned with a spectacular reef, good beaches.

Beats any on your shortlist but if you want one from your list.....Embudu for its proper Maldives feel.

Sorry guys...scrap those.

Completely forgot can't do vila from anywhere but gatwick...

Loved the look of Reethi but all the quotes i got were WAY over budget.

Embudu looks, dare i say it, a bit trampy?!

Perhaps you guys could suggest some more 'budget' ones.

Really worrying & stressing now :(

There seems to be a lot of negatives on this forum for Kuredu, but I do wonder how many people who say they wouldn't consider it have actually been there. We went in an O JBV and loved it, but that did give us the O restaurant which is adult only and lovely.

Came back over budget too!

Problem is we can only afford the cheaper hotels eg that thomson/first choice offer but we can't fly from gatwick which means we can't use thomson!

Hayes & Jarv said they wil be offering Vila from next April so that's no good.

Have looked at so many websites & have so many travel agents my head is spinning!!!
