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. Old, pre-Google+ reviews are still in the system, and will appear below as written by "A Google User". More info from Google is here.

Review:   The most amazing trip we've had! The facilities were amazing and the service was impeccable! The diving was amazing! (Thanks to Jay our Divemaster!) Food was excellent - everything is made to order and super fresh! But the best part, I think, is the Escape, their 80 ft sailboat. Amazing vessel (thanks to the captain who knows the best spots to go dive and see the whale shark and giant manta rays!). Yes it's expensive, but you get what you pay for.

Review:   Our standing ovation goes not just to great hotels, but mostly to the ones that are ready to admit their imperfections and know how to make you forget about them. This is absolutely the best example. I would send staff from the Westin Berlin to train their on a course "How to make your unhappy guest very happy!" Well, not only Westin, a couple of others need that course too. Of course, if you live in the same tiny island day after for a 10 days, you find something that makes you unhappy. In our case it was not enough Internet connection for a 2 hour video Skype conversation, which was absolutely necessary for us; too much chili in the food and a guy that was cleaning our room. But all the staff, all the managers and especially Chunky, our wonderful concierge and our W Insider, would just make it all disappear in such a perfect manner, we would simply become happy again! Still I would say, a food could be better. But I wasn't as bored with it as I was expecting for 10 days and my wife is totally happy, even about the food. Downunder and Wave are such a great guys! Found 3 whale sharks for us on our boat tour! 14 meters long and at arm's length (it was safe, don't worry). Ah, dry cleaning is definitely something you shouldn't do on Maldives. Stick to the laundry and save everything else for back home.

Review:   It’s a must visit place with excellent hospitality and staff. The best part about the place is they never say no for anything. Everybody goes out of the way to make your stay special. Mr.vasant and harpal singh were superb cook and made all the indian food we asked for. Made us feel like home. Salim was an amazing guide for snorkelling. Hussain clicked pretty pictures for us. Bartenders made amazing cocktails and sheesha. And every other staff made our stay memorable. Do visit and stay in w maldives next time you plan a trip to maldives.
