  • Hi everyone, I'm back from my honeymoon last October 31 al 2016 village BRAVO ALPITOUR Alimatha .... nice sea, beautiful hotel, very clean, friendly staff, kitchen little varied but good .... nice everything! .... But one thing that bothered me, if you have to go en route to Alimatha, but, I think, in any administrative division of the Maldives, change his euros into dollars here in Italy, forget about the stupid things that they tell you the tour, which also accept Euro operetor .... don't accept the Euro but the dollar 1 to 1 change ... a Euro-dollar, illegal in almost every country in the world but li, the justification is "what we do here" ... also, in addition to government tax of 12%, li, the village BRAVO ALPITOUR Alimatha, apply, on your charge (excursions, scuba diving, shopping, etc ... everything not included in "All-inclusive". I mean!!!) an additional 10% as "service tax" ... what kind of fee is??? ... in what capacity? ... so if you do not want to be stung twice, 1 to 1 Exchange ILLEGAL dollar/Euro, paid in dollars, or by credit card. ... and 10% "tax services" ... that you have to beccarsela! ... but the place is beautiful! ..... Merry journey, if you are starting out, or if you think of it!

  • The place is really lovely. An island in the Pacific Ocean with choice of overwater bungalow, beach or garden in the inner part of the island. Good food with a choice of first courses, main courses, desserts and fruit. The sea is gorgeous, even in the days of clouds you see the transparency of water! Only downside: the cleanliness of the rooms was not precisely accurate. The towels were changed regularly every day but sheets and dust on the bedside tables (glass so you see) were not changed or cleaned ... We had a dirty stain on the sheets and throughout the week has always remained ... Apart from this small detail Maldivian workers that we have found to work in the village were cordial and very funny. Another flaw of the week was the entertainment, but there is definitely not the fault of the village or place. The animators unfortunately were all lazy, sometimes even rude in manners to ask and answers, and most shocking thing disrespectful towards our customers. While we were sitting at the table not far from them could hear their stories on events in the village where bullied customers. I understand that maybe at the end of the season you are tired, but if you're going to be rude and "tease" customers do it on your own bungalow separately so there is no danger that you feel. And then, you'll be in the Maldives ..... but you're working, and I client I deserve the same treatment to those who came early in the season! I didn't pay to see entertainers listless, sick or tired. A very bad figure.
