Our time at Mercure was amazing! The scenery and setting was amazing. However, the twice daily smogging to control mosquitos, even though necessary possibly could have been done differently. The statement that indicated you could modify your in room liquor bar was not what was advertised. We had to have a handwritten list to indicate what we preferred. The trip to the sandbar with snorkling excursion which was supposed to be free turned out to have an additional $104.00 US charge. The use of the airport lounge at the Mali airport was not available to people leaving the resort. Overall it was an amazing trip of a life time. That could be made better with a few minor adjustments.

Sooooo relaxing… sensational staff and hospitality, world class snorkelling and truely all inclusive holiday. The mini bar is stocked daily, and the options of food and beverages is unlimited! The beach villa was private and secluded with our own direct entry to the ocean. Every morning was a delight to wake up to the beach view, and as the resorts faces west, we could sit back and relax at the pool bar or on our very own sunbeds at the villa to enjoy the Maldivian sunset! We did not have to think about a thing! If you’re still reading, you’re wasting time.. just book it! No regrets! Xx

1. Housekeeping: Housekeeping service at overwater villa was more prompt and attentive than beach villa. It was my cousin’s birthday and I happen to bump into someone from housekeeping (sadly, I didn’t get his name as I was in a rush to the Recept) he was very nice to check with me what time we’ll be out of the room so that they can get the room decor done and gave me a buggy ride (out of his way) to the Recept! 2. Recept: Recept experience wasn’t as good, as I was hoping to give my cousin a nice surprise by sending a bottle of Prosecco to the room. But a lady from Recept was very rigid. While I understand there are charges for champagne but Prosecco are part of the all-inclusive package. Would have been a lot more pleasant if there were alternative solutions or the resort going the extra miles for a birthday girl celebrating her actual birthday on the island. 3. Restaurant: one gentleman at the fruits cutting station was really nice to prepare papaya for us as the buffet line was out of papayas. And another gentleman from the buffet line went out of the way on my last day to prepare thosai even though he told me it ran out when I tried to order. The worse experience was during my cousin’s birthday celebration at the restaurant. She was told to go to the “birthday table” to enjoy the cake alone. I’m not sure what’s your SOP but I’m quite sure no one wants to be eating a birthday cake alone. Food at the Italian restaurant was a little inconsistent. Our first night there, the steak we order was very tough and food was mediocre. However, on our second night there the food was fantastic. 4. Bar: The gentlemen at the bar were fantastic! They are constantly busy (we understand why) but keeps a very positive attitude. They go out of the way to prepare special cocktails when we had difficulties choosing what to drink. 5. Dolphin cruise: I must applaud the captain who brought us to the dolphin cruise. He’s a man of few words but definitely a very experience and responsible captain! We had an amazing experience and it was our first time (so up close with dolphins) 6. Jet ski instructor: Our mums (at 60s and 70s) were really scare going on jet ski but the jet ski instructor was really nice to give them a ride! He was constantly looking back to make sure our jet ski behind him caught up with him.

We had such a great experience - The over water sunset villa was stunning ! It was very well presented and very clean. The food and wine and cocktails were of a high standard. The crystal clear water and snorkeling was outstanding - an abundance of fish and reef sharks. The only disappointment was our daily beer bucket - on most days we just didnt receive it ! But this was minor compared to the standard of this adults only resort... totally recommend this bucket list holiday !
Dear Dianne W., Thank you for sharing your "bucket list stay" experience at Mercure Maldives Kooddoo! We're thrilled to hear that you had a great time in our overwater sunset villa and enjoyed the stunning surroundings, high-quality food, and exceptional snorkeling. We apologize for the minor hiccup with the daily beer bucket and appreciate your understanding. It's fantastic to know that you would recommend our adults-only resort for a bucket list holiday. We look forward to hosting you again for more memorable moments. Sincerely, Christophe Victor Resort Manager

The hotel is approx 1 hours internal flight from the main airport, bear in mind the extra layover time when planning your trip. The island has a small airstrip so the hotel pick you up in a golf buggy and it's only a minute or two journey to the hotel. Although it is advertised as a 4 star everything about our stay was a 5 star experience. Location is everything you would expect, clear waters, turtles, baby sharks and many type of fish. It's not a huge resort so you get a very personal feel to the service and the team at the bar know you after the first day. All the staff were amazing and really made us feel welcome and looked after. There are 2 restuarants, the main buffet and an Italian a la carte, the pool bar also does lunch options and early evening snacks. All the food we had was delicious and the buffet has different themes each day to it doesn't get 'samey'. There are a full range of activities on offer but really this is somewhere to chill out and enjoy nature.
Dear dh2005, Thank you so much for taking the time to share your wonderful experience at Mercure Maldives Kooddoo! We're delighted to hear that your stay with us exceeded expectations and that you enjoyed the beauty of our island paradise. It warms our hearts to know that our team's hospitality and personalized service made your stay a 5-star experience. Our small resort size allows us to provide a more intimate and attentive service, and we're thrilled to hear that you felt welcomed and well taken care of. It's fantastic to know that you enjoyed the diverse culinary offerings at our restaurants, and we're glad the daily themed buffets kept things exciting. The mention of clear waters, turtles, baby sharks, and various fish brings a smile to our faces—it's truly a unique and magical setting. We appreciate your mention of the range of activities available while also recognizing the tranquility and natural beauty of the surroundings. Mercure Maldives Kooddoo is indeed a place to unwind, appreciate nature, and create lasting memories. Thank you again for choosing to stay with us, and we look forward to welcoming you back for another unforgettable experience. Warm regards, Christophe Victor Resort Manager
