Top Tips from our Experts

Tina

Destination Specialist

"Wild dolphins are really easy to spot from most areas of the island, but especially at morning as the sun is coming up. Morning cruises are also available on selected days to go and see the Spinner dolphins."

I cried when we left.

Wellington, New Zealand

Things I'll miss about Coco Palm: - Boggy (short for Bog Standard), the fish that lived under our Lagoon Villa and would appear consistently during our evening 'fish watch'. - Stripes, the teeny fish that lived under the second step of our ladder. - Ali, who takes care of the Lagoon Villa guests. On Day 1 he told us that we'd miss him when we went home. He was not wrong. - The tuna. Omg...the tuna. I ate so much delicious fresh tuna sashimi, steaks, seared, tartare while I was there I almost turned into a tuna. - A nut cooler with white rum. Every evening at the beach bar while the sun went down. - Teasing the trigger fish on the little reef near our villa. - The turtles at the rescue centre. Stop in and say hello to Chou Chou for me. Hopefully you won't see Penny because she will have been released. - Afternoon meetings at the fish posters. Discussing with other guests who saw what and where. - That sand. That water. Like nothing else I've seen anywhere in the world. - The huge bed. Even though it was our honeymoon, there's nothing better than no touching when you're trying to sleep :D - Having an evening shower with half the blinds closed so you can still watch the sun setting but any passing snorkellers don't get an eyeful. - Those tiny birds that make way more noise than they should for their size. - Hermit crabs in every shell under the sun. - The coconut ice cream/sorbet...yuuuuuum! - The bats. Actually, I will miss those.... - The Egg Maestro. I can't remember his name but every morning he was there, faithfully making my perfectly runny poached eggs. In summary, if you're tossing up where to go, pick Dhuni Kolhu. I should also note that I haven't been anywhere else in the Maldives but I have travelled extensively and this was one of our best holidays EVER. This isn't the place if you're after a party but it is the place if you want to relax so much that you forget what day of the week it is. The food was amazing. I was a little worried about the same restaurant having had a bad experience in the past with all inclusive but it was faultless. No two days were the same and there's something for every taste. Some tips: - Avoid villas 25 - 28. These are the fabled 'sand bag' villas. A necessary evil in fight against erosion. (Although villa 27 is far larger than the other villas oddly). - Recommend villa 97! Say hi to Boggy and Stripes! - Don't bother bringing any shoes but jandals. You won't need them. - DO THE MANTA RAY SNORKELLING. - Be prepared for your room to not be ready as soon as you arrive. Most arrive in the morning and check out is 12pm. We arrived at about 10.30am and didn't get into our room until 3.30pm but we just drank at the conch bar and had some lunch. No bother. - Be nice to Ali. He's a gem. - TRY THE TUNA. Even if you think you don't like raw fish. Thank you for an amazing honeymoon and I hope we can return one day.

Watch out which villa you stay in.

Slough, United Kingdom

I went to this resort. Location is absolutely fantastic. Rooms are clean and more than adequate, staff are great. The snorkelling is great, when they have the equipment, it took a day and a half to get mine. The scuba diving is well worth trying, the instructors are very helpful and knowledgeable, The villa I was given, while internally very nice, unfortunately the sun never got to the veranda and the sun loungers by the beach should be sued for trade description as they should be described as 'shade loungers' as they were surrounded by trees !! I would recommend this resort, on the understanding that you would not stay in villa 31.
