I have been to the Maldives several times (Naladhu, Taj Exotica, Kanuhura, Lux). I'm looking to go again and am seeing some great off peak package rates for the three hotels in the subject, all more or less around the same price with half board included.
Has anyone out there been to all three and could maybe let me know which they preferreed. I'd be going with basic beach accommoation in each (prefer beack to water villas). My thoughts from what I've read are:
Soneva - something v special about the place but no main pool and decor possibly a little dated, food and snorkelling excellent and lots of little extras
One and Only - villas out of this world, but I hear it's a little commercial, expensive, food can be hit and miss. not sure about the island reef?
Four Seasons KH - hard to really get a feel for it, seems like it might have more kids than the others, FS service always top notch.
Can anyone advise? Food is important and also I'm not sure with free HB whether they allow you to choose restaurants or not. Also, is snorkelling equipment free etc. - I hate when they try to get every last dollar out of you when you're already spending lots of money! Many thanks!!!
