We stayed for 6 nights for our honeymoon with half the time in the Beach Villa and the rest in Retreat Water Villa. It's really an amazing experience both at Maldives and Conrad.
Service at Conrad is really a 6 star experience. All the staffs are nice and seem to know everything well, from the people at the airport lounge, the island host (Haishal), the front desk .. to the housekeepers (Faiz & Shah) all did an excellent job in taking care of us and making our stay a memorable experience.
The Beach Villa is huge with great outdoor bathroom, however I agree that some parts are showing their ages. The Retreat Water Villa looks even more amazing than it is on the pictures, with the jacuzzi which is perfect to relax, and the location that you can catch both sunrise and sunset. There's also a coffee maker with not 1 but 4 type of coffee capsules inside each house which I extremely like since I'm a coffee lover.
Snorkeling is great with 2 best spots, one on the left side of the water sport center and one near beach villa 220-225. You can also rent a paddle boat (for free), go into the area in front of the water sport center and jump into the middle of the sea for snorkeling there. We are busy all days with snorkeling, kayak, paddle boat & jet ski.
Breakfast & dinner at Atoll are great, with good varieties of different cuisines, and you can order your customized fruit juice during breakfast time. Breakfast at Vilu is not so good, so we did not try dinner there. Instead, the dinners at Sunset Grill are absolutely wonderful. We have dinner there twice, trying different food, and all taste delicious. We especially love the soup there, and it seems that they cook all kind of soup really well. Our favourite is seafood chowder & Maldivian lobster. On a separate note, the F&B Menu price does not seem to be so high compared to many 5 star resorts. However, I have not been to the underwater restaurant, so not sure about it.
So overall, amazing stay, great people, very comfortable rooms, many activities to keep you from the TV & tablet (afternoon tea, live music, water sports ...), beautiful beach, sky and fish, lot of fish, in all size & color. Will be perfect for honeymooners, or simply anyone looking for a relaxing time.
