Review:   Extremely beautiful resort. Super organized activities and the food is awesome. I honestly have not been to anywhere with as much warmth and hospitality. I suggest Half-Board meal plan for best value for money. Water bungalow is beautiful. However, if you are not big on swimming I suggest you lodge at Superior beach villas. It also has best value for money including proximity to the fun spots. The security is amazing and everything works. Please note that there is no CCTV. Another downside is there is free WiFi only in the rooms and selected (few) spots like Main bar. Whatever the case I'd advise not more than a week stay for maximum fun. I'd definitely look forward to a next visit.

Review:   This is a really lovely resort on a most beautiful island. The staff were all so helpful and nothing was too much trouble The villa we stayed in was also really good + was kept immaculately clean. The food was awesome and was enjoyed by all of us immensely. We had great fun snorkeling. It was so good to see all the brightly coloured fish. What an experience!

Review:   Loved the resort.. well maintained.. polite staff. Beautiful beaches and lot of activities to entertain our self.. Food is priced on the higher side.. and the buffet spread for breakfast and dinner is sort if repetitive... Other than this... There is no concern about hospitality or maintenance or services of the resort. Plan your trip to this plce u will not regret it

Review:   Beautiful resort. But if you going to celebrate your honeymoon it probably is not best choice for you. Hotel specializes on group and family’s. The children are everywhere: beach, pool, restaurants... If money is the determining factor for you then you can have very good deal with hotel. Don’t forget you will need fly from Male airport to Maamigili airport. Take a short time drive and speed boat.

Review:   Sun Island is a very beautiful place! Cleanliness and Scenic beauty are it's top positives. However the place fails when it comes to services. It's chaotic coordination. Very delayed when it comes to delivering services. No coordination between departments. Reception is completely lost when it comes to check in check out. We could not perform any activities like scuba snorkelling since there was so much confusion with the reception desk. The buggy system is so delayed. Communication is a big lack. No call backs on request. Was there for my birthday but it was quite a disappointment. The cake at the hotel room ended up having ants on it!
