About Google Reviews: recently Google has converted their review system to require reviewers to have a proper, identifiable Google+ profile. This is a good thing, as it tends to cut down on bad reviews, both from people unwilling to stand behind their comments and fake positive reviews from the businesses themselves.

Review:   This trip was meant to be a marriage proposal and to make things special, I emailed the management 1.5 months in advance saying that I would like to have a special dinner under their "Dining by Design" where I would be making my move while the sun was setting so that I could take some photos with the beautiful Maldivian sunset as a backdrop. So in my email, I requested for them to suggest a good timing for me to start dining but they merely replied "sunset time" in the booking details. I could understand the ambiguity in their reply as no one can ever pinpoint what time the sun would set exactly but a range of timing would have been very helpful for me. Moving on. On the day of my arrival (17th November), I told the staff that I had arranged for the "dining by design" tonight and asked him what time I should reach Gulhifushi Island so that I can catch the sunset. He told me that to call the reception at 5.50pm where a buggy will pick me up from my suite and bring me to the pontoon where I will take another short boat ride to Gulhifushi. At 5.55pm, I called the receptionist and explained that I had a "dining by design" appointment but was told that I had to wait 10-15 mins for the buggy. Noting that the sun was already setting, my partner and I decided to just walk all the way from the overwater suites to the reception (it was at least a 10 minutes walk by foot), only to be told that I will need to wait for the boat to come (another goddamn 10 minutes). In short, I only reached Gulhifushi Island at 7.30pm where I had to propose in pitch dark. For a meal (2 pax) costing more than USD800 and with such a long notice in advance, I am truly disappointed that you guys can even screw this up for me. Also, you guys did not even put in any effort to make it up to me. I had to be the one to personally ask you guys to re-arrange the same setting the next day so that I can go back down to the island at 5pm JUST to retake some photos, which I DIDN't WANT it in the end as I was already too pissed off and had other better plans given my short staycation. TDLR: I wasn't expecting some fanciful michelin star dining experience. All I wanted was being able to propose to my girlfriend when the sun is setting and I was willing to pay for that. You could have asked me to go down at 5pm or even earlier so that I won't miss the sunset but no one said anything about that when I first arrived. I was the one who had to inform your staff that I had arranged the dinner at Gulhifushi Island and I also had to be the one to ask your staff what timing is appropriate to catch the sunset, which he clearly recommended me a timing that is wayyyy after sunset. My problem with your team is you guys don't take enough initiative and didn't even bother to make it up to me. You know who I am, feel free to reply/reach out to me if you think my review is factually wrong.
