Just come back from Maldives a couple of days ago.
What can I say...
1)We flew with Monarch airlines- very bad!!Please, do not use Monarch for longhaul flights!!!Meals were not good and on the way back to London they even ran out of bottled water...we were forced to drink tap water, which we usualy dont drink...but what can you do...only suffer for 12 hours!!!
2)As we arrived in Male we had to wait in the lounge for 3 hours for the seaplane to arrive...some people waited even longer. But... (read more)

The island is beautifull and has a great house-reef. Staff is friendly, the accomodation is nice and clean, food is delicious, with a lot of variety. This place fully our expectations.
Note: As for Lucas if you want to dive.

I would send my friends to this island the Meedhupparu Island Resort and know that they would have a very good holiday. The staff were very good and any thing they could do for you they would.
The room was very good and clean, plenty of tea/sugar/milk provided as needed. The snorkeling was very good just walk into the sea and you are on the reef lots to see.
I have visited many islands in the Maldives this overall is so far the best as we are returning this October it says it all. (read more)

Flight: We flew Monarch, on the way out we upgraded to premium for £75 each (initially Cosmos offered it to us at £116 per person each way). To be honest it really wasn't worth it, the seats were slightly wider and the legroom was the pretty much the same as economy (around 34 inches), the drinks were free but unless you're intending to get paralytic then it would only cost you £10-£15 each to drink the equivalent in Economy, the films, etc were pretty poor although the food was slightly...

Overall, this was a great holiday, and the staff are the most friendly and helpful people you could meet. The dive centre was excellent - great knowledgeable instructors, and some good dive excursions. But I would have to say that I would probably not return to Meedhupparu because of a few bad points.
First of all, the water bungalows have been given an exclusive treatment which prohibits 'second-class citizens' from the main resort, and prevents a walk around the island. This is also bad... (read more)

Couldn't fault any aspect, yes the flight was a little uncomfortable but it's all worth it and I would do it again soon! (read more)

This is a nit-picking, hyper-critical review of our stay in Meedhupparu in the Maldives, so up front I would like to make it clear that it is a great place, with great staff and we had a great time (in spite of the weather)! But there is no real point in just saying that, so here goes.
Firstly, I would advise against taking any holiday in the Maldives involving Monarch and/or My Travel airlines. We were 24 hours late out (Monarch) and 19 hours late back (My Travel). Both should stick to... (read more)

This for me was the best holiday I've ever had. It was our first trip to Meedhupparu in the Maldives but it met all expectations. All the staff were friendly and very helpful nothing was to much trouble. The food was great, a different theme every night, so there was plenty of choice, with snacks in the main bar. Most drinks were available on the all inclusive, except cocktails which were only $3. A nice big pool which over looked the sea and it was kept really clean, as well as the rest of... (read more)

When we arrived in the Maldives we were surprised by how remote it was, and the lovely sandy beaches and the perfect blue sea. Even though it was the monsoon period, we only saw rain on a couple of occasions, and this didn't spoil our holiday in any way whatsoever.
The staff were brilliant and very helpful. Our room attendant was fantastic, and he made pretty patterns on our bed, and he often made pictures using flowers. We didn't have to share a table in the restaurant, and if we did, who... (read more)

Staff were attentive and friendly. You did not have to chase a waiter as another critic claimed. The only things which you had to pay for were cocktails, which at 3 dollars a time was no great hardship. Drinks from the mini bar and the spa, oh and wine, which I did disagree with.
Since we went off season there was not much in the way of entertainment, but if I may suggest, if you need to have your entertainment provided, you are on the wrong type of holiday.
A really good value for money... (read more)

After visiting 5 islands, I can say that Meedhupparu is by far not the best. Every person I met suffered with travellers tummy, which lasted for the duration of the holiday - this is my biggest gripe. If you are going to this island you must take lots of Imodium and re-hydration sachets! If you wish to dine at the Water Villa's you must try to book before you arrive. We were denied any access for the whole two weeks. If you dine at Fine Dining, expect a bill of around the $130 mark (wine... (read more)

I've been to 5 Maldivian islands and love the Maldives; had a good time here at Meedhupparu and it was beautiful but it wasn't the best by any means (nor is it the worst). The food was excellent -- a really wide range of choices every night. If you want a pool, they've got a nice one with a pool bar (although if you want to hang out in a pool, don't bother with the Maldives ... go somewhere cheaper. The sea is the business). Felt the place was quite crowded even though it was only half... (read more)
