Our 3rd visits to Diamonds and it was just as stunning as the first!
Briefly the huge positives: Water Villas are stunning (we discovered this time that the Northern facing Villas are classed as Sunset Villas that his time of year - September. However if you want Sun on the deck all day just do a bit of research as to what may suit your needs best). Staff are incredible, friendly and attentive (special mention to Farouq in the over water restaurant and Easa who looked after our Villa). Snorkelling is second to none with vast variety of Marine life. The food, just love it! Especially the over water restaurant. Buffet/ Teppanyaki are also great.
Some (minor) negatives: The cocktail list/ quality should be addressed. They are Ok, but just don't match the high level of everything else available. The Barstaff do a great job, but possibly the Hotel should look to investing in some better quality spirits.
Afternoon 'snacks' delivered to the water villas. A lovely touch, and very much appreciated, however when it's 30 degrees, maybe 2 slices of cake would be better replaced by Ice Cream or something similar, and a little more variety maybe?
These really are minor points, and don't let these detract from an overall excellent Hotel.
Diamonds still remains our favourite Maldivian destination, and we look forward to returning in the future!
