Great resort, hardworking team, average food
The resort staff tries hard and is constantly improving but there is still a ways to go in terms of service quality. I would give Hassan and his team an A for effort. The resort is spectacular from the perspective of facilities, proximity to a great reef and diving and activities. The food is average - and could definitely improve substantially. That said, we had a great time and would definitely go back.

Do not spend your money for it
I paid for full board but the charge me on water, I have stung many many times of lots of bugs all over my body, main island was closed which is much nice then that is open now, the food quality was bad no variety of foods, they clean rooms only every 2 days, rooms very close to the bar which is so noisy we can’t sleep till 12 am they stop music, buggy was scheduled you can’t request for it & you have to wait 30 minutes & if you are lucky you cloud find a free space, staff are not kind enough you will not never hear good morning of good evening from them, the beach smells so bad we can’t go close to it.

Rude & Barbarous Sales Director, Olhuveli: Frances
After paying in full, we received a confirmation email with the following note: "TRANSFER POLICY: We offer speedboat transfer between Male International Airport and the resort. Our transfer are combined transfer along with other guests from scheduled flights on the day and please note that our transfers will not be available every hour, all depends on the guests flights movements. Regarding the transfer timing we will final arrival and departure movements one day prior to guest arrival/departure day. The below charges will be applicable as per your reservation. Return Speedboat Transfer Rate: USD 229 NET per adult, USD 115 NET per child."
Given we will be meeting friends at Male town and will be staying at a different resort after Olhuveli, we proceeded to make our own transfer arrangements. Upon arrival on Day 1 we were rudely confronted by their Sales Director – Frances, who told us we are not allowed to make our own transfer arrangements. We explained 1. We are not going to Male so why pay to be transferred there. 2. Your policy states “offer” instead of “mandatory” to which she said “It is not my problem where you chose to go after Olhuveli but we will transfer you to Male and you will be charged for it”. I was later told by a staff that if we didn’t pay for the transfer, our room keys will not be issued.
Overall a nice resort with the exception of Frances who was rude and barbarous. Our other encounters with Afeef, Olga and Ruswan was very pleasant.

This resort is very nice. The pools are great and the beaches ate wonderful. I especially enjoyed the beach on dream Island. I stayed in a beach bungalow. It was very nice inside and opened right onto the beach. The bed was a bit firm for my liking but the pillows were great. The AC worked really well and I was also very happy with the free WiFi. The bathroom did need some improvements. The shower was in the open with no enclosure around it. This lead to the entire floor being wet and the tiles becoming very slippery. The wood around the door was also rotting from all the water.
I enjoyed the breakfast buffet and really liked the food from Island Pizza, but I was disappointed in the food at the dinner buffet. There was a lot of items offered, but none of it was really to my friends nor my taste. The desert bar included some delicious items, though.
The spa was awesome. I got a 90 minute massage and an aloe treatment. Both were great.

We stayed at a Grand Water Villa at Olhuveli for 4N. The resort is beautifully done up and the area where the Grand Water villa and Grand Beach villas are situated is particularly breathtaking, with turquoise water and white sand beaches. The resort has 5-6 restaurants, each a different cuisine type, which actually worked out well for us as we were on a B&B package. The food at all the restaurants was superb. There's enough to do and explore at the resort itself, and they also organise multiple excursions. The boat transfers and checkout was also very well organised.
The only thing that could get better was the wi-fi speed sometimes, but not sure the resort itself can do anything about that.
Overall, we had a fantastic stay and loved everything about the resort!
