We stayed in a water villa for 7 nights. It was absolute heaven. We have stayed in a Constance hotel before, which was amazing and led to use choosing Constance again for out Maldives trip. We were very pleased we did. The brand is very consistent and did not let us down.
Everything was perfect, from the scenery to the rooms and the service. The all inclusive package is excellent. We went on the dolphin sightseeing boat trip for the free trip included in the Cristal package. Unfortunately we didn't see any dolphins but the hotel obviously can't be blamed for this.
The food was varied every day and neither of us had any problems finding something to eat, even as a fussy vegetarian. The staff went out of their way to get you what you wanted, even items which were not on offer that day. The service was very attentive but not smothering. The waiters remembered small details and there was a great personal touch. It was lovely that the executive chef was by the buffet every day to talk to guests.
The facilities are excellent - everything which was needed was there. We didn't use the spa but it looked wonderful. The island is beautiful, simply stunning in every way. The beaches were beautiful and never busy. The water is exceptional and the coral all around the island is full of life. We snorkelled every day and saw an amazing array of fish.
The only negatives we could say was that we had a late flight out (11pm) and therefore decided to pay for the Constance lounge at the airport on the way back. We were disappointed that there was a charge to use the lounge on the way home in the first place as it was free on the way out. The charge ($58 USD pp) included dinner so we begrudgingly paid. Once the food arrived at the lounge, we were very disappointed at the quality. It was a million miles away from what we ate daily on the island. I understand that it probably comes from somewhere on Male, but they shouldn't charge so much when the quality is so poor. We felt ripped off for amount we paid, which was a shame after everything on the island was so perfect. My advice would be don't pay for the lounge and eat in one of the restaurants at the airport.
Also, there were occasionally some people smoking in the restaurant/bar. I understand that as there are no walls, it could be classed as outside, however there is a ceiling and I did not enjoy people smoking around me, especially as I am pregnant. I feel that there should be a no smoking policy in the bar/restaurant. Smokers could sit at one of the outside tables if they wish to smoke.
We would thoroughly recommend the resort and would love to go back one day. It was the most relaxing week and we felt very spoilt. Thank you to all the staff for a wonderful time.
