Reviewed 13 June 2014

There are two of us and we stayed for 3 days. We waited for 1 hour for the shuttle ship at airport and 2 hours at main bar before we could check in and rest in bed. Not a good first impression but I was too tired to complaint about that after the exhausting flight.
The food is good, limited options but in good quality. The supervisor checked every dish before it is served to each table.
The new manager Indy is helpful and kind, he would like to listen to the guests' opinion and that made the stay more pleasant.
The bartender Gayan is nice. It's possible for you to ask for special drinks and he'd fulfill your wish.
The general room service is okay, because we didn't bother the staff too much.
But for emergency, yes, they do solve the problems too slow.
All the supervisors and executives want to do the best, but the for the employees, there are much for them to improve.
In total, a nice stay, wiz a holiday mood (which is try ignoring the unpleasant things and be happy)

We were stay for our honeymoon in Adaaran. Nearly everything was perfect. You should dive than you can take a lot of beautiful photos. All workers are very kindly and always smiling. Foods was very delicious especially fish meals. The waiter who interest us the name was Asif, he always smile and kindly. You should listen his suggestion for eating. The rooms were clean and fantastic view. The internet was very slow and all dvd players usb were not working. That was the only problems for us I hope they will urgently fix it. Generally the service was excellent ( club car, menu, waiter service, spa, room cleaning, diving workers, shops, reception etc. )

Room Tip: If possible you should choose sunset rooms.

This resort offered everything I had ever dreamed of in a magical Maldivian experience: spacious over-water villa, private plunge pool on deck, outdoor jacuzzi attached to bathroom, glass panel built into room floor to view the sea & fish below, direct access to snorkelling from our own private deck, inspiring sunset views (we booked a sunset villa, but sunrise is great too & we went to view this from the other side of the island), good choice of food for full board, a sandy island you can easily walk all round and a personal butler at our service (he took care of our excursions & brought us canapés & drinks in the evening). Added bonuses were the resort's accessibility (just a short boat ride from Male airport) and price (not cheap but very reasonable compared to other Maldives resorts with these features). The beautiful scenery of the Maldives with its clear blue waters as depicted in publicity photos is no exaggeration and the Adaaran Prestige Vadoo is an ideal place to enjoy this.

Our trip to Maldives was a surprise to my wife and it definitely turned out to be one of the best vacations for us till now. While the location itself is magnificent, our overall experience could not have been what it was without Adaaran Prestige Vadoo.

I selected this resort based on the pictures and description from Adaaran website, videos on YouTube and reviews from various other websites. I can say without any doubt that we were not disappointed in any way whatsoever. This turned out to be our second honeymoon trip; romaintc, relaxing and luxurious.

The Resort:

The Vadoo island is a short speedboat ride from Male International Airport. We rented a Sunset Water Villa and it was absolutely gorgeous. Sunset water villas were facing away from the resort island. They formed an arc with a view of another resort island in the distance on one side and the rest was Indian Ocean as far as the eye can see. The Adaaran resort island is about 2 acres in size (according to our butler) and had lots of stuff for luxury and fun. Following is a list of a few available amenities.
- Direct access to snorkeling in the lagoon both from the water villas and the island
- Private pool on the deck of each villa
- Common infiniti pool
- Massage parlor
- Multi cuisine restaurant
- Japanese restaurant
- Few bars
- Dance floor
- Volleyball court
- Free DVD rental
- Free snorkeling equipment rental
- Fitness center

Our room was clean and very well maintained. It was spacious and we loved the modern decor.

Staff and Service:

The hospitality of the staff at Adaaran Prestige Vadoo was undoubtedly one of the best we experienced among all of our vacations. Right from the moment we signed in at the airport after reaching Male, till we were dropped off at the end of our stay, everything was taken care of with personal care and professionalism.

We traveled all the way from New York and were completely exhausted on reaching the island at 10 AM. We requested an early check-in considering our situation. We were given a villa right away though the normal check-in time was 2 PM. Starting then, through out our stay, we thoroughly enjoyed the services the staff provided. Our butler used to bring fresh fruit and water to our villa every morning and chocolates in the evening. Bed was made and the towels were changed promptly every day. Bottom line --- our butler, the restaurant staff, massage folks, bartenders, boat crew who took us for the dolphin watching and everyone else involved made our stay that much more memorable.

Room Tip: Honeymoon villas are slightly isolated from the rest of them. Sunrise villas face the resort island...

Property is good for this resort. Nice beaches n environment.

Services is bad:

1) only 3 boat schedules on check out: 1145am, 630pm, 8pm ( usd 110 pp both way, u paid for the ride n u wait for the boat)
2) Room services call to our room ( maybe is morning call ) at 8am, ( my wife still sleeping ) to ask us want to have breakfast in our villa??? (My friend next villa asked for breakfast so they wish us to have breakfast together!!!!!)
3) No iron n iron board to lend, they want to charge 1-2 dollar to iron a piece of cloth. ( this is the first n only hotel I experienced)

Few more n the stories r too long n too lazy to write!

Bye bye Adaraan!!
