It's a one of the most beautiful placeses in the world, soon as we landed the Mr.Gaig( Hotle Manager) welcome us to the island and it's felt like home.ppl who like to do diving will enjoyed this place but we didn't had much time to do so..staff are so friendly and grating w a smile all the time.
We went in a full bord package but I should have booked a bed & breakfast only,food in the main restaurant not so good and in the main bar restaurant the food was really good. Any way don't expect to eat seafood items the choice are very less.

Room Tip: Room on the west end of the island are good.

If you want to get away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life then this is the island for you.We were treated with the upmost care from the moment we stepped off the jetty and were amazed with the raw beauty of the island. The staff were amazing, from the waiters, chefs, cleaners and gardeners, but the new management team, who have only been there 2 weeks were amazing. We did have a problem, like you can when abroad, but the way the management handled it was beyond normal limits, thier proffessionalism, curtisy and genuine concern went completly beyond our expectations.This resort is fantastic, a complete relaxation and one that we would have no regrets recommending it to anyone and we will definatly be going back to see "our family" who made us so welcome.

Room Tip: We cannot comment only to say that every room is no further than 6 ft from the Indian ocean, what mo...

We booked through Scuba Tours Worldwide, flew with Qatar Airline via Doha (very good) and had a wonderful time, it is a very small island but it was never crowded. We had room 113, perfect! it had just been refitted to a very high standard and had a beach just in front. The food was very good, plenty of choice, fresh fish, vegetables and lots of fresh fruit, all self service, and our waiter, Samah, was very helpful and friendly. There is a bar overlooking the sea which serves snacks and meals which were reasonably priced.
We dived with Euro Divers, very professional, friendly and helpful and the house reef is excellent, turtles, white tips, manta rays! There are also water sports, canoes, jet skis, catamaran, etc.,
We were a little concerned about some of the negative comments about the Island, but we had a wonderful time, it was our third trip to the Maldives and the best so far.

Room Tip: rooms 112 and 113 have been refitted and have good beach area

NO MORE ROOM ON THE ISLAND ! That's what they tell us at the airport after more than 10 hours of flight. While our names are still on the reservations list and while we had reserved 6 months ago. So the desk clerk of the airport suggests us to go to another island during two nights. We refuse it and are proved right against this relocation. However, once we arrive at the hotel reception, they propose us a standard room while we reserved for superior room. But wishing what we paid for, we refuse.
Then, they finally let us a superior room.
Magnificent superior room with modern furniture ( only on catalog ). Because in reality, nothing look like it was on the photographs. Furniture are old and ruined.
Room called ''Superior'' with telephone and TV out of order during all our stay.
And it is impossible to contact the representative of the travel agency.
About other details: Tasteless Breakfast. The waiter named Abdoullah is unprofessional and unpleasant.
I shall at least tell some positive points : Well maintained and very pleasant Island with a place for snorkeling almost unspoiled. Our room cleaner was very professional and helpful.

This is a return trip to Eriyadu , we go for the diving & to meet up with friends . Nothing has changed since last year some worse, I feel many people return for the exceptionally well run dive school this is run by Euro Divers, they cater for all level of divers & run snorkelling trips , they are professional & fun people. Much has been said about the rooms most of which I agree they really need a simple lick of paint & a deep clean, they are very tired, but then not much time is spent in them. Both bedroom & bathroom are large the latter having bath,2 showers an inside & an outside.We were all inclusive the better deal I think as drinks are expensive out there. There was a good selection of food at every meal,some wonderful curries & a fresh fruit bar at lunch/ evening time, staff friendly & helpful.the bar area is lovely great for sundowners & there is also a small clean pool.
However reception is quite different made worse by the lack of management, you arrive & wait 2/4 hours for your room, yes I do expect to wait but some of the times are rather too long . They are over booked most of the time moving people to other islands in some cases, or trying to downgrade you to the concrete prison block of rooms, this to my mind unacceptable but indeed it was happening most days, the staff try but there is no management there to sort things out, this was happening most days. Why do we return? Because of the dive school & the friends we meet, also the price the this island is not cheap but compared to a lot of the other Maldivian Island which want to go upmarket Eriyadu is more reasonable, with a little bit of thought some management,& a pot of paint this island would get 5 stars.Oh & yes we did enjoy our time there.

Standard room is disgusting . Dirty and very taky . If you are in the second floor you don't even have terrace or a place to clean your feet before going in to the room which means the room is full of sand .
We had a machine noise the whole night and after asking in the recepcion nothing changed .
Beach full of sand bags .
The only good thing is the amazing reef for snorkling because diving is very very expensive. And the nice area with the bar in front of the sea and next to a small swimming pool . I won't ever come back .
