    While the Maldives are beautiful and the views and coral life are beyond expectations the value for your money does not add up at this resort. We received none of the VIP perks which was disappointing but ok. What I really didn't like was the very limited drink options for all-inclusive, they had about 7 drink options and room service was an extra charge. The perk? We stayed at an overwater bungalow and the views and room were perfect.

    Overwater Villas are amazing! The staff are very helpful and very responsive. Special thanks to Pramod, Hussain & Sara at the front desk, they are super helpful! Special thanks to Mr. Sattar who always goes out of his way to make us flowers and take beautiful photos of us and always smiling. Also great service at the restaurant. The staff are so amazing that make you feel at home!

    I enjoyed my stay and the staff were very accommodating from pickup at the airport to the arrival at the resort. It's shoulder and COVID season, but I wish dining options were a bit more varied - buffets are nice but sometimes it's nice to wine-and-dine, especially at such a beautiful location! The overwater bungalow was fantastic and worth the trip to experience it. The outdoor deck was spacious, had nice furniture, and most importantly - shade! One suggestion for improvement is to add some plants or flowers to the outdoor deck - it would've made it feel a bit more lively.

  • 4,0.Fair

    This is our honeymoon and the overall experience was unfortunately disappointing. We booked all-inclusive over the water bungalow for 3 nights. Postives: hotel was kind enough to let us check-in early (10:30am) and check-out late (2:30pm); lagoon is lovely and views from room very nice; chefs in main restaurant on beach were very nice and tried their best to accommodate my food allergies. Negatives: we were not aware when we booked that there are two types of all-inclusive- premium and ours (second class). Ours was in fact NOT all inclusive- and the food and drinks were low quality and with very limited choices.

    I did like the service at the bars, beach and the restaurant. I found the entertainment at nights is not sufficient but their new years party was very well organized. Overall, it was a pleasant stay.

    Maldives getaway at a great value!

    We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Cinnamon Dhonveli, the reasons are many: Communication - Communication with the resort was prompt and all questions asked were timely answered. This was especially valuable when our arriving flight was delayed by four hours. We were able to get in touch with the resort right away to reschedule the airport transfer. Resort transfer - this is done via speedboat. It took 20 min to get to the resort and is considerably less expensive than seaplane. This played to our advantage when our flight was delayed. We were still able to get to the resort the same day whereas others who are transferring to other resorts via seaplane had to overnight in Male. Resort - the resort is on its own private island with stunning views and a nice sheltered beach. The island was a nice size to walk around but not too big to get lost. They offer plenty of excursions as well has having an exceptional in-house band. Room - we received a free room upgrade to a garden bungalow. It was spacious, clean and comfortable. All-inclusive - the AI was very generous on meals and drinks, great value overall Staff - the staff were absolutely incredible! They are friendly, helpful, and just superb all around, we will miss them! All things considered, Cinnamon Dhonveli was the perfect place for us to unwind and relax, the island is fully WIFI connected as well. A+++++ Highly recommended for those looking for a Maldives getaway at a great value!
