Very friendly staff. Property well kept. Food OK. When you get an all-inclusive plan, snacks should be available as part of the plan... when you want them, not just at certain hours! Would still recommend this resort!

This is a beautiful resort with great snorkeling. The room was larger than the pictures show and the food was amazing with several options. I didn’t care for the 2 different all inclusive options. My option didn’t have many cocktail drinks to choose from. An all inclusive resort should include all drinks. The service was excellent in the buffer style restaurant where all the food was served. I actually never saw the other restaurant open which requires reservations and is an extra charge. The spa was terrific and we used their services twice. I highly recommend this resort for relaxing and enjoying the beautiful scenery. Hint: get the seaplane transfer and not the speed boat.

only get the Jacuzzi, you also get more privacy in the terrace plus the amazing sunset. The water was amazing and if you get the Sunset overwater villa with the jacuzzi, you can snorkel right off your villa. If you prefer a better view of the incredible blue water, then the other villas might be better for you since the sunset villas are over rocks but we really liked being so close to the reef. We saw many different types of beautiful fish, including reef sharks. The hotel in general was incredible and the staff was so attentive. Our waiter, Hassan, did a fantastic job. He learned our drink order and every time he saw us at the buffet, he would get our drinks and water without even asking. It was a very personalized experience and we really enjoyed learning more about Maldivian life from him. We also went to a sand bank and on a one hour Jet-ski excursion around the local islands to see more of the beautiful Maldives and that was the highlight of our trip. Because of Covid, you cannot go to the local islands so that was the next best thing. Our housekeeper, Jameel, did an amazing job at cleaning the room and even the jacuzzi every time. The only drawbacks, the service at the pool bar is very slow and the pool needs more cleaning or painting but overall, we had an amazing honeymoon.

We had an amazing experience at Cinnamon Velifushi these last few days. One of the most courteous and welcoming staff we’ve met during all our travel. The entire resort is beautiful and very well maintained by the folks there. Highly recommend!
