The resort is over priced

Pros: The snorkelling was good. The staff were friendly
Cons: The rooms need a major over haul. Refrigate drinks so they are cold when they are served. Change the house wine as is not very nice.Free water boards
Location: The snorkelling was good with turtles, eels, sharks, stingrays and colourful fish. The coral is dead. Swimming was great and water crystal clear.
The resort needs a major renovation as everything is run down. When we arrived and we were told the beach bungalow we booked was unavailable for the first 2 nights as they were over booked in that room type. After travelling 26 hours to get there it was not a warm welcome. We were offered a complimentary dinner on the beach and breakfast the last morning, this was an insult as the beach dinner was no way any compensation and if they checked our reservations correctly they would have known we had the all inclusive package daily. We refused the down grade and were given a beach bungalow which we booked. It shows on the Ellaidhoo web site that the beach bungalows have a bath which is not correct, the baths have been filled in with sand and unusable. We should have spent the extra money and gone 4 or 5 star
