                        Everything is pleasant like most Maldives' hotels, short of special features and surprising touches. Their water and sand are the gift from god.

                        Food is below expectation with cheap ingredients used and you have no choice but to pay high price for them.

                        It is a beautiful resort, limited number of people on the island and great for privacy with the way they have designed the beach villas. Very relaxing and the service was great.

                        The food was very expensive with an average spend of $ 150 per person per day just for food, it seems that they take advantage that there is no other option but to eat at one of the half a dozen food outlets thay have on the island and charge way over the top for it. Also the lack of evening entertainment but overall great place

                        We had a villa on the beach on west side of the island which for us was the best option and really was excellent. The children enjoyed a lot to swim ,very easy for us to survey them. The beach and water was exactly like in the pictures. Perfect sensation when wake-up in the morning with the sea view just in your eyes .Very comfortable to be in 30 second from your bed in the sea water. Very nice staff.

                        The Velassaru team is amazingggg.... They made all the difference. Any and every staff who passes by is smiling and greeting. You can tell they are genuine and welcoming. It was the best experience we've had till date. They esnure that you are comfortable and we did not have to make much effort when requesting for anything. The island is clean and very well maintained, so was our Water Bungalow.

                        There isnt anything we didnt like though i did hope for a slightly more extensive food menu and wish the island was bigger in area since it was so beautiful!

                        The staff were very friendly (in particular the supervisor named "Didi") and accommodating. The deluxe bungalow was luxurious, spacious and loved the outdoor shower situated amongst real greenery (cleverly brought into the bathroom.) Amenties were plentiful and well-kept and the island had a variety of fine dining to meet dietary wishes!

                        A fair bit overpriced - was expecting to be at least half board at the price paid instead of just bed and breakfast. The most overpriced service was the spa. Other negative comment was that the nighttime entertainment was very limited and infrequent!

                        岛整体风景非常美,游泳池设计非常独到。 The view of swimming pool is great. The place (deck) to enjoy the sunset is wonderful (with music and services and comfortable chairs which design is unique). (看夕阳的酒吧视野非常开阔,环境气氛非常好,有音乐相伴。) Room is quite clean and comfortable. Not far away from Male (25 min boat), good for old people to travel. Staff are very kind and nice, greeting and smile whenever meet you. Many restaurant of different taste and style (Southeast Asia, European, Buffet...). Speical sand chair and services for romatic couples (creative idea). Provide enough drinking water (two big bottles) for daily use.

                        Too many mosquito and bite people heavily especially outside.(岛上美国花蚊子特别多,咬人很凶,甚至隔着衣服叮人,必须采取各种防蚊手段。) Sense of safety of diving center seems not enough for tourist. (Suggest to give more explain when people have certain concerns eg. not good weather, shark...) (出海时一方面听取潜水中心人员判断,最好也同时参考自己对天气状况的判断,天气不好尽量不要冒险出行。) No telephone info in the room card holder (Couldn't call to get the support in case emergency when out of the hotel). Toilet and shower is outside the room (need to deal with mosquito). Room is a bit dark. Swimming pool can't be used after 6pm. The notice card ("don't disturb", "clean the room") easy to be blew off.

                        Very friendly sraff, amazing sandy paths all aruond the island

                        The only thing we didn't like was the process of pre-paying for our stay - sending scanned credit card detalis via e-mail, which is absolutely unsafe. Actuaqlly that's the first time we were asked to do such a thing, although we do travel a lot around the world

                        It is just close to Male which would be convenient. Water and sand are good.

                        Transportation cost is too high for the distance and it was not mentioned in the booking that they were going to USD120 for a 2 x 20mins boat trip.

                        We were three ladies in our early thirties looking for a comfortable and relaxing trip. Velassaru Maldives was the best place we could've chosen. The staff was extremely helpful and friendly and even though the resort was at full capacity, we were made to feel like we were the only people at the resort. We had chosen different treatments at the spa and they were all spectacular! There was an abundance of activities to choose from (diving, snorkelling, dolphin excursion, water activities and much more). Even though the Maldives is generally known as a honeymoon hotspot but there were quite a few families enjoying their time at Velassaru Maldives. The resort had four restaurants which we could enjoy dinner at. We started and ended our trip with a dinner at the very delicious Teppanyaki restaurant. We had stayed in a deluxe bungalow which was perfect. It was conveniently located close to the beach, the pool, the reception and the outlets. There was also an outdoor shower which was a lovely experience. We had an hour to spare between check out and catching the boat to the airport so the staff offered us a delicious goodbye cocktail on the house. A very sweet and thoughtful gesture. In general, it was an extremely memorable trip which I wish I could turn back time on to relive.

                        I really have no negative comments to say about Velassaru Maldives. There were a few families who allowed their children to go haywire and cause a bit of disturbance but I suppose this is something the families should work on and is not Velassaru's fault. The drainage system in the bathroom was a bit noisy so any trip to the restroom in the middle of the night may be a slight annoyance to any lightsleepers in the room. The breakfast buffet was delicious and rich but after four days, we had gotten bored of the monotony and was hoping there was something different we could choose from.

                        Globally i'm satisfied with everything but I put "average" because my expectation would so high compare with total cost. I got indulgence which was good for my family. But I don't want to recommend you even hb or fb because the price of restaraunt is not expensive... It's reasonable vs quality and service.... The food quality was great... 3 main restauraunt were fantastic.... And Chris(Kris) who is working in sand,,, his service was great.... Thanks again Chris.

                        Air conditioning in the spa is just at your face if you make it together in one room.
