When you think of the Maldives, you picture beautiful sunset, over water villas and crystal clear ocean water with lots of fish. The resort had all of that and more. However the kindness and graciousness of the staff really made our trip a once in a lifetime. We couldn't have asked for better service. The waitstaff were always ready to fulfil your every need food and drink wise. The spa was so good, we had to book a second visit. Highly recommend this resort, even though an hour flight from Male, even the transfers were handled well

Jennifer X. Couples - 03/04/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

From the moment we were greeted at the Male airport into the lounge, we knew we had made a great choice choosing to stay with Mercure Kooddoo. The rest of the staff greeted us in the lobby once arriving at the hotel and from here on out we were treated with the most thoughtful and sweetest way possible. Once we decided we wanted to upgrade our stay, Nimesh, the manager made it really simple for us and accommodated the change quickly with the staff. The next Day we received the most intricate and beautiful honeymoon decoration in our room! My husband and I were over the moon. The staff was always very kind attentive to every single one of our needs and helped us in every way to possible to the best of their abilities. My husband and I being vegan were cooked vegan meals for dinner and it was amazing—seriously amazing! We’re sad we had to leave but glad we got to make wonderful memories of the Maldives in KOODDOO at Mercure. Go to the spa!!! Trust me!! Also, splurge on the romántic overwater breakfast. Trust me. You won’t regret it. Loved it there. Excited to tell all my friends and family about it. Highly recommend them! Enjoy your stay. Enjoy the sweeter things I’m life like staying at Mercure Maldives.

Lovely beach houses, nice staff and a very relaxing and quiet place! What could be improved is the room cleaning hours as they came to late in the day. Otherwise was a perfect holiday, good food and the staff 10+, 11 for Yonathan from the chicken

Dear Guest, Thank you for the review of our resort. Yonathan thanks you for the special recommendation and looks forward to cooking his special chicken dish for you again in the near future. Please accept our sincere apologies for the unplanned spa closure but we had no control over it and had to follow the COVID guidelines. Thank you once again for this candid feedback. We all look forward to welcoming you back very soon. Wish you a safe and wonderful year ahead. Sincerely, Nimesh Pandav Front Office Manager

Overall Experience was Good and the property was up to our expectations. It is suggested to work on the Menu for Lunch and Dinner as there is not much variety for Indian Vegetarians, but however the Chef was courteous enough and managed to prepare some Indian food during our stay

Dear Guest, We very much appreciate your comments regarding your stay at the Mercure Maldives Kooddoo Resort. Thank you for your feedback about the availability of vegetarian food options and shared with the Head Chef. Thank you again for sharing your experience, and we hope your next visit will be as pleasant as the previous one. Sincerely, Nimesh Pandav Front Office Manager

Customer review rating 4.5/5

Andrea Couples - 10/03/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

This is a very different experience to what you would expect from a Mercure in a European city. This is much more refined, pleasant. The resort has few rooms so you get a very personal experience, almost like staying with friends. The overwater villa isn’t one of the biggest but it’s very well kept and all amenities (except WiFi and minibar) are more than you would expect to find in a mercure. Pros: Boutique hotel experience Easy transfer - aircraft to lobby in 15 mins in a golf cart Amazing, wonderful staff (especially the Filipino chefs in the restaurant, and the Indonesian and Kenyan masseuses in the spa. Sorry, I’m horrible with names!) Resort is very well maintained Food is great Ambience is truly what you expect from the Maldives. Outdoor shower and bath, diving platform, viewing floor window in the overwater villa is dream-like. Cons: - wifi. Come on it’s 2021, you can’t do anything with 1Mbps. Thankfully we had bought a Dhiraagu tourist SIM at the airport and used that instead. - minibar. Contents were minimal - minibar fridge doesn’t cool. They tried to replace it but it was still the same. - one of the barmen (Maldivian, sorry forgot his name) needs some bartender training. He cannot do cocktails to save his life unfortunately. - excessive tip solicitation. Going around dinner tables with fake receipts saying it’s “for inventory” is low and cheap. I tipped whenever a tip was deserved. This happened mostly when the same Maldivian barman was working behind the bar. - transfers need to be better organised. After asking about our transfers several times, we were told just the day before we left that we were put on the 6am transfer. 6am! We pushed and were told there was only a 9am option, then after checking ourselves and saying there is a 2pm flight, we were finally put on this flight. Why didn’t you ask us which one we’d prefer and avoid all the challenging? Overall we had an amazing stay. Honestly my expectations were lower as this is branded a Mercure and I was pleasantly surprised. On the other hand, it was good value for money because we found a good deal on a 3rd party website. I checked the official Accor website for the same dates and categories and the price was more than double - it wouldn’t have been worth that money, but with the price of the offer it was well worth it. We will be back as long as we can find another offer. The full price isn’t justified.

Edgar G 21/01/2020 TripAdvisor review

The Resort is a reality of "Paradise on Earth" location. Was worth the 450Kms additional trip by Air. The Staff is the main back bone of the Resort, However, a few excelled in their duties. Dinesh at the Poolside Bar raised our Spirits a few notches Higher. Jayasinghe raised our weight by a couple of Kgs by meeting ALL our food requests to perfection. Kim ensured that all our needs were accepted without a wimp. Niroshan was at our beck & call. To All the above most important is being an Accor Plus member of this wonderful Group. We would like the Resort to give or sell Souvenirs of the Resort for future memories.

Dear Edgar G, Thank you for your candid review about our resort. We appreciate your special mention about our staff. Please accept our sincere gratitude for choosing us as your Maldives holiday destination. We look forward for another chance to be your hosts soon. Thank you again for being a part of the Accor Plus family. Best Regards, Management, Mercure Maldives Kooddoo.

It was a hen trip for my best friend. It's one of the best hotels we've ever stayed in. The island, the hotel, the service, the staff and the food. Everything was perfect. I definitely recommend the hotel and the beach villas :)

Dear ozlemdemirkir, Thank you for the great review. We are delighted to know that you had a great stay and enjoyed all the services in our resort. We look forward to hosting you again. Management, Mercure Maldives Kooddoo.

Pond1986 Couples - 10/12/2019 TripAdvisor review

Fantastic honeymoon for us. We stayed in sunset overwater pool villa. The view from the villa was brlliant. There are various activities we can do in the resort. The service from staff were also excellent. They've assisted us all the way since arriving at MALE airport till we get back. The food was very good especially the a-la-carte menu. Personally, I think booking the bed and breakfast room with having a-la-carte lunch and dinner would be excellent option especially if you're accor plus member that have 50% discount on food.

Dear Guest, Thank you for the great review. We are delighted to know that you had a great stay and enjoyed all the services in our resort. We look forward to hosting you again. Management, Mercure Maldives Kooddoo.

An amazing place to visit. Great accommodation, lovely and helpful staff. Great food. The Maldives was my partners dream destination and this resort helped the dream come true. Unfortunately the reef has had some damage some time back but it is still full of an amazing assortment of marine life. We would happily stay again.

Dear Guest. Thank you for the great review. We are delighted to know that your partner and you enjoyed your stay in our resort and we are happy that we could help your dream come true. The reef is reviving and we are taking utmost care of it so that guests in the coming days get the best of the Maldives in their visit. We look forward to hosting you again!

Unforgettable Getaway

TripAdvisor rating 5.0/5

Ashton_ms Couples - 07/09/2019 TripAdvisor review

A pristine resort with warm staff from start to finish. We were received after immigration at the international airport and escorted to domestic airport a short walk away. Check-in had already closed for our flight but the Mercure staff made sure to already check us in so all we had to do was drop our bags and hop onto the plane. The resort itself is stunning. There was a good variety of food so it never felt repetitive despite staying there for six nights. The villa is larger in real life than what appears in the photos. We had so much fun snorkelling in the area and ran out of time to do some diving. Will schedule more time in the future! Special shout-out to Harsha at Vistas Restaurant and Munthaz, our housekeeper, for adding that personal touch and making it wonderful experience. On the way back, someone received us again at the domestic airport to make sure we entered the international airport correctly. Thanks so much Mercure for an unforgettable second anniversary.

Perfection in Paradise

TripAdvisor rating 5.0/5

jillspoor Couples - 25/04/2019 TripAdvisor review

From the moment we landed in Male and were greeted by the Mercure staff to the moment we were accompanied back to the airport for departure, our stay was perfect in everyway!! If it wasn't already impressive enough that we were greeted in Male upon arrival, as soon as we landed the resort was right there so no additional travel was required. As soon as we stepped foot on the resort our breath was taken away by this pristine paradise. We stayed in an over the water sunset pool villa which we found to be perfect in size for us as a couple. We found every element of design for the Villa truly luxurious. We particularly loved the bathroom and outdoor shower. The resort itself is small and intimate which felt very exclusive and luxurious to us. We had the breakfast buffet and opted out for the lunch and dinner buffet which we regretted because the Buffet was outstanding. We loved our daily routine with Chef Juber and Chef Yambar for breakfast who made us feel truly special during our entire stay. Every morning they went above and beyond in their service. Equally as genuine in their service were bartenders Dinesh and Nalin. Not only was their attentive and personalized service exceptional but they custom made cocktails for us everyday. These two teams were always anticipating our needs which made us feel very cared for. My partner and I travel frequently all over the world and this is by far the best experience we have ever had. We both feel that it will be very difficult to top what we experienced in both service and accommodations. I should also mention the Gym was amazing with all new equipment and a view of the water. One couldn't ask for a more inspirational setting. Mercure Kooddoo Resort defines luxury in a very understated, unpretentious and simple style which we fell in love with and which has eternally captivated us. Thank you so much to everyone that made this the most special and most memorable holiday we have ever had. We feel so blessed to have had this experience with you. It was truly magical!

Dear jillspoor, Warm Greetings from Mercure Maldives Kooddoo! Thank you so much for your time in posting an exquisite review regarding your stay with us! This is what we really love to hear the most! We are happy to see that you loved our resort from the quality of service we offered, facilities we have, and the food that our restaurants serve, Moreover we are indeed grateful that during your entire stay, you feel heart warmed and incredible which made your stay with us ‘like a home away from home!’ Truly delighted to see that once again our team members did an exceptional quality of service, we at Mercure don’t just strive for perfection but strive for the best experience and quality of service we can offer to our valuable guest, rest assure that your review will be shared to the entire Mercure Maldives Kooddoo family.

No Wonder It Won Best New Resort

TripAdvisor rating 5.0/5

Joshua S Couples - 24/04/2019 TripAdvisor review

This was one of, if not the best hotel we've ever stayed in. That's Accor hotel or not. Across Sofitel to the W to the Ritz, this Mercure is 5 star. There are some things that one needs to take into consideration for example the tiles used in the bathroom aren't the most expensive, however, they look great. The property has been open for around a year and it doesn't seem to have weathered much at all. My wife and I have stayed in over-water bungalows in other places before so something appealed to us about having a beach villa. We're so happy that we went with the beach villa. I'm an Accor Plus Gold member so the hotel was kind enough to upgrade us to a villa with a pool. I'm not a big pool guy, but I must have jumped in that water 3-4 times just because it looked so freakin' awesome. The room itself is a great layout with plenty of space. The bed is super comfortable. Maybe one downside is the amount of sand that you can easily track in. I think it would be nice to have a mat or tray for shoes and sandals at the door when you enter. Around the property, it was really well kept. The gym was more than enough. It was great that the dive center offered free snorkeling equipment. The water around the property was stunning and the coral and fish that you can see look incredible. There's definitely different marine life that you'll want to explore here compared to Thailand or Australia or Fiji (3 other snorkeling places we've been in the last 6 months). Looking at the food and beverage offerings, it's pretty good but could be better. The buffet breakfast is fine. There are plenty of choices, but I would imagine that after a few days it would be repetitive. Vistas, one of the restaurants, only serves dinners and to be honest, it should also serve lunches as it give people a different option from the lunch buffet or a la carte menu in Alita. There's only so many buffets a person can have. A la carte is the way to go. You might have to wait longer to get your food (you def. will), but it's worth it. The staff there is very well trained and nice. They're not friendly like Thai smiley friendly, but they're friendly and genuine in their own way. It felt legit and not put on. I would be happy to go back there. One obvious downside is the flight to and from the island, but it's understandable and probably very unavoidable.

Dear jssokolo, Warm Greetings from Mercure Maldives Kooddoo! Thank you for taking time to share your experience and rating us a 5 star resort here on Trip Advisor! It is so nice to hear that we left awesome experience with you and also we are overwhelmed on how you appreciate the services that our team members had extended, trust we will share this to the entire Mercure team. In regards with your kind remarks, please rest assure that it has been raised internally to the team and the management and it will be taken into further consideration. Moreover thank you for tagging us as ‘No Wonder It Won Best New Resort’ and we sincerely thank you for that! We all hope in welcoming you back! Warm Regards, Management, Mercure Maldives Kooddoo

Great resort, inspect your snorkel equipment

TripAdvisor rating 4.0/5

mickbrown81 Couples - 17/03/2019 TripAdvisor review

Was a great resort and overall great experience. When returning the snorkel equipment, I was informed that there was an extremely minor tear in one of the snorkel fins. I'm not convinced that I cause the tear, andcit was so minor I didn't even notice it until it was pointed out to me when returning. It definitely would not have affected the continued use of the fins. I was stunned at having to pay $US60 for what is essentially a useless souvenir now, especially as an Accor Platinum member. Put a bit of a dampener on the whole experience.

Dear Valued Guest, It was our pleasure and honor to be your hosts during your Maldives getaway. We are glad that you enjoyed your stay and had an great experience. Our sincere gratitude for your loyalty and patronage towards Accor. Please accept our apologies for the inconvenience you felt due to our Dive Center policies about snorkeling equipment. Your feedback is already under discussion within the management team and we are already working in tweaking the policies and procedures in order to reduce guest inconvenience. Thank you for your trust in choosing Mercure Maldives Kooddoo as your preferred holiday destination and look forward to welcome you back very soon. Sincerely, Nimesh Pandav Front Office Manager.
