  • I've been to this island with my mom from 10 to 18 December to celebrate my birthday, what about a perfect holiday. We flew with the Neos, great flight with great entertainment on board. The only flaw we have been experiencing difficulties with seat assignments. Arrived at male greeted us with a big smile and cheer Gerry and Lollo we took the speedboat (1 hour and a half), and arrived at the island after checking in kids Maldivians have accompanied us in our little further away at the beach in green (Altan Altan from the sea), but it is worth staying in the green and go hiking! The entertainment guys are great as well, very nice! Evening shows and games that followed were great! Lollo faith and jig you did dream, even Gerry sara drop Sasha were great! During the day you could go hiking or stay on the island, we enjoyed of entertainment of kids and I enjoyed a lot to windsurf with Caló! Snorkeling is great, and I will be forever grateful to Sarah who has managed to make me swim with sharks at dighiri nonoatante my fears! Unlimited Wi-Fi surcharge takes perfectly throughout the island, a little less to the theater but the shows of the guys make you look away from the screen as well as the whole holiday ... Upon return we took the seaplane, 20 min and we arrived at the airport, in our opinion much more comfortable! Thanks to all the guys for having rest our trip unforgettable. Talisa and Flannery.

A great liking for Sara fitness, Less courteous and present Ada desk. Get yourself a sarong to the Maldivian evening and a white dress for the evening. Slippers and bare feet Great pasta in red, a bit all the same foods including fish.
