Just back from Medhufushi…and we had a blast!
Room: we booked two connected villa by the beach. Perfect for a family of 4. Room have everything needed for a week
Resort: well managed, beach and pool well managed and clean
Activities: not cheap but this is Maldives… jet ski (USD 89 for 20mn), wake board (USD 50 for 20mn), private speed boat for snorkeling and dolphin watch (USD 190 for 1.5hr), banana boat (USD 32 per person and 15m), Kayake (USD 18/ hr)
Diving: great staff. Did 3 dives and saw lot of turtles, sharks and many fish of course. Not cheap again but worth it
Food: bored pretty quick with the buffet. Overall food quality is fine, however hard to find a meat of fish that is not totally overcooked, wasn't impressed here
Staff: very nice and polite. nothing to complain about
Night entertainment: haven't attend to anything. We had long busy days and didn't stay late at night.
Transport: seaplane transfer offers a fabulous view of the atoll… really amazing
Overall: we had great holidays. We were worried about getting bored in a small island for a week but ended up wishing spending 1 more week there ! There is plenty of things to do on the island if you have a budget.. Hotel also organize free snorkeling trip almost every day though. Although there is nothing specially done for kids, our 4 years old kid had fun by the pool, hunt for crab and did join different snorkeling trip with us.
Tips: plenty of sun screen (really, UV exposure is extreme), bring snacks if you have kids, didn't need to use any insect repellent (I guess depend on when you go there).
