Crystal clear water
Having read several reviews about the Club Faru resort in the Maldives, I was a little worried about it prior to going, but from the minute we arrived at Gatwick my worries were for nothing.
First Choice Star Premier is excellent, and I recommend the day before check-in. Plane journey both ways on time and very good.
The hotel itself was great! Please don't let the negative reviews you read about this hotel put you off. Yes, you are close to the airport, but you hardly see or hear the planes. The accommodation is comfortable and very clean, food is of the very highest standard, drinks from the bar are named brands and plenty of it, staff are extremely friendly, and that's from the manger right down to the luggage boys. Evening entertainment is OK - not brilliant.
I would definitely recommend the day long island hopping by seaplane. It is a bit expensive, but wow! It's well worth it. Diving is good, and there is plenty to se, and a lot of various reefs. Not the place for young children, purely because there isn't much for them to do.
Looking forward to returning to Club Faru again. Please don't let the negative reviews put you off. Last word has to go to First Choice (well done)!
