So the really wacky thing is, full-board is no cheaper than paying for meals individually!
Thanks, very useful I'm off there for Christmas on points. I believe the discrepancy maybe because the individual meal prices were described as NETT ie including tax and srv chg. The full board and all inc prices are plus tax and service charge

Hi. The speed boat price is 184 usd and is added on to your hotel bill. It is per person.

I was here a week ago so if you have any questions then let me know.

I have this on a shortlist for a future holiday. I'd appreciate if you could write up your experiences of the hotel, any good or bad points, or any tips.

Hello. I'll be staying at this hotel for 4 nights in January 2012. I'd been thinking about upgrading to all inclusive. Is it worthy? We do like to have a few cocktails when sitted by the pool and beach and also at night. I'm trying to figure out whether we will spend more than $200 per day each on food and drinks.

Thanks.

Folks, really sorry. The season of goodwill has caught up with me and the copious amounts of consumed alcohol would not have helped the quality of the TR. I will aim to get one done next week.

Please feel free to email me specific questions.

Its a great place to go btw.

Considering the current political developments in the Maldives, it's time to think long and hard about a stay there. I myself have reconsidered. Things don't look good.
