We , along with 8 other friends, stayed 10 days in June. This was the second time for 4 of us and, before we even left, the first-timers were making plans for our next visit to paradise. The food was excellent and personalized for our one gluten intolerant friend. They even gave us cooking lessons for the Dal soup we all enjoyed! There wasn't a single staff person that did not do everything they could to make our trip memorable.
While Mother Nature did not give us her best, we were kept busy with the activities that were best suited to that days weather. Joanna, the manager, went out of her way to ensure that we got to see and do every thing that we wanted, even if some of our group was off doing one activity while others were just hanging out at the resort or on another activity. Richard, the previous manager came for a visit while we were there and we enjoyed sitting and visiting with him. The cooks and wait staff were great as was Dee on our village visit. Maika took us all around Kadavu and Ono on all the various activities with a smile. They made sure that we had places to snorkel even for our less advanced people as well as some really good open water spots for the more adventuresome.
We enjoyed our visits with Joe and our doors are open if he makes it to the US!
It is more like staying at a close friend's home then being at a hotel. This is not the place for you if you want big screen tv or tennis courts and all the stuff that goes with it. But, if you don't mind wading out to your boat, no air conditioning, phones,or big crowds, this may be the place for you.
When it came time to leave, there were tears in the eyes of both us and the staff.
Thanks to everyone at Maidive. We can't wait to come back. Hank and Ann
