Lovely Break with super friendly staff

TripAdvisor rating 5.0/5

What an awesome break! Loved every part of this island and its surrounds. The staff were lovely, the food was good and the water and marine life really made this break memorable for us. Special shout out to Kasun from the cocktail bar that was super friendly and the guys at the Dive Hut that helped us to see some turtles on our final day. Would love to head back next year.

Fabulous Time in the Maldives

TripAdvisor rating 4.0/5

wglee Couples - TripAdvisor review

Just spent 5 days at MERCURE resort and it was fabulous - beautiful location on the same island as the airport ( did not hear a plane the whole time we were there), so only a 5 min buggy ride after landing ( this was most welcome after it took a whole day to get here from Singapore). Overwater Villas with the pool were worth getting. 516-519 if possible as it gives you a short swim to the reef wall, otherwise you need to swim along way or walk to the end of the walkway and get in from the ladder. - Reef was the best I’ve been to and we have travelled to many places including , Tahiti, Fiji, Great Barrier Reef in Aus, Thailand, Hawaii ( they did have diving with the Manta’s which was cool). So many species of fish, turtles, sharks ( reef and nurse sharks) 50m from your overwater villa. - Food was good, 4 star but fresh . I think presentation of the food could be better. (Buffet, Pool Bar and Vista restaurant ) maybe another restaurant to choose from, and more a la cart options, would bring it up to 5 star. I did hear that the head chef was on leave at the time, which would explain some of the concerns. Saying this though the pastries in the morning were the best I have eaten anywhere, so compliments to the pastry chef. - Staff: 5 star service throughout the resort. The staff went above and beyond to make your stay a memorable one. From seamless check in to checking out, bar staff, restaurant staff, cleaners, maintenance. All were fantastic, no exceptions. - I few mentions: Nazeer at the front desk was fabulous, always helpful with a smile on his face. Jo Anne in Vista was always accommodating and had great suggestions from the food to the wine. Maaiz in the dive shop, couldn’t ask for anyone better. Went out of his way to make us feel safe and secure out on the reef. If he’s available book him for a private tour around the house reef, what you see will amaze you. Made in the restaurant, I call her “ smiley” as she never stops smiling. Made’s service was impeccable and felt she looked after us like a daughter would look after her parents. Ibrahim in Alita, the restaurant supervisor just went unassumingly around making sure all the guest were looked after. Also if you get a complimentary photo shoot,use it as the photos are amazing and there is no pressure to buy. We did it last minute and had some beautiful photos we took home.

Magic in the Maldives

TripAdvisor rating 5.0/5

Rharvell TripAdvisor review

Our stay at Mercure Maldives was beyond amazing! The food was fabulous, and the service was top-notch. We relaxed and enjoyed both the pool and the ocean, soaking up every moment of tranquility. The spa experience was incredible, with wonderful massages and facial treatments. We indulged in the spa twice during our five-day stay and left feeling completely rejuvenated. The resort surprised us with so many fun amenities. We loved renting rackets and tennis balls for a game on the tennis courts, and our diving excursion was one of the most beautiful experiences of our lives. Swimming next to vibrant marine life was unforgettable. We truly lost our sense of time because we enjoyed every minute, basking in the sun and sipping on delicious drinks. If you’re considering a trip to the Maldives, I highly recommend checking out this amazing resort with its fantastic amenities and impeccable service!

Amazing service

TripAdvisor rating 5.0/5

Mumma79 Couples - TripAdvisor review

This place is like nowhere on earth. The staff are amazing, nothing is ever too much. As soon as you sit down, your offered drinks, the Alía buffet is fantastic with different theme nights daily. Everything is taken care off here from the moment you step off the plane in Male, they have staff waiting for you, you go to the VIP lounge till your flight comes. You’re greeted with refreshing drinks and a wet face washer. The entire staff is always smiling, happy to take photos and quickly learn the drinks you like and your room number. This place is amazing and so much to do on the island. Highly recommend the snorkeling (bring your GoPro for amazing shots of the sea life) Definitely recommend staying in an over the water sunset villa for the amazing views- it’s definitely worth it. The staff I remember are Hassan Smith Allina Ali Jo-ann Kylie Kasun- Bar Handoko-chef who cooked us an amazing private seafood meal on the beach. Yasir- reception Raushan- reception Gracia- diving team Thuga- airport host Especial thanks to Thuga who was so friendly and helpful at the airport assisting us on the way there and back.

Dear Mumma79, Greetings from Mercure Maldives Kooddoo ! Thank you so much for your glowing review! We are thrilled to hear that your stay with us was such a memorable experience and that you enjoyed every aspect of your visit, from the moment you arrived in Male to your departure. We're delighted to know that you appreciated the seamless service, fantastic buffet with its daily theme nights, and the personalized attention from our staff. It's wonderful to hear that the overwater sunset villa provided you with amazing views and that you had such a fantastic time snorkeling. Your kind words about our team members, including Hassan, Smith, Allina, Ali, Jo-ann, Kylie, Kasun, Handoko, Yasir, Raushan, Gracia, and Thuga, mean a lot to us. We will be sure to pass along your compliments to them, especially Thuga, who assisted you at the airport. Thank you for recommending us and sharing your experience.
