    We were "people of alimatha" in 2015. A dream! Ok.. nature has done everything ... but the Organization of this village is super! The entire staff is highly qualified. Very nice all. The food is sublime. beautiful walk anywhere barefoot! And before returning to your room. a basin with water and flowers X wipe ... If during your stay is your birthday ... the bed decorated with flowers ... and dinner, singing and congratulations to gogo! Guests can enjoy diving. Everything magic

    Beautiful place!! Sun Sea Beach beautiful!! The resort is well kept and clean, the food is tasty, fish are good even other dishes! Maldivian staff are friendly and polite, the bungalows are kept well! Although in my I found skinks ... but standing on the sand ... the animation good ... She didn't show X nothing ... unobtrusive say some reviews, X me I saw more holiday cheer, this to alimatha is non-existent! But one of them which in my opinion is the best among them Max! Then in my opinion should be improved the portion of transfers from the airport to the atoll, poorly organized and poorly followed by personnel bravo! In the end prices in the resort are exaggerated since the water 500cl the beauty of $5 X go X excursions, taxes, souvenirs, Wi-Fi, does all that expensive! Then a clarification, the dry my washing at 40 degrees so I'm recepcion is so. ..

    We were in Alimatha in August 2015. A paradise. Excellent location, services offered, courtesy of local staff and the daily and evening animation with the animation Chief Nicholas Felix. The rooms in the cottages on the water are lovely, with private terrace, makes you come down with a wooden staircase into a natural pool protected by the barrier reef. Excellent quality and presentation of the products in the restaurant. Excellent organization of excursions. The nightly fun and engaging. All like a big family. We parked our shoes upon arrival on the island and had them shoot reluctantly at the start. We were coddled so much that we didn't want to leave. At least once in your life you have to go.

    The place, needless to say, is a true paradise. Needless to stand here and tell the spectacular colors of the sea, the brilliance of sand or the thousands of fish found by snorkeling directly from the landing stage (by the way, portetevi mask, fins and snorkel, you won't regret it!). They are just experiences to try. Now, we come to the village. The rooms are really cute and well catered for, as well as the staff (both Italian that Maldivian) is really helpful. The rooms are arranged for 2 times a day. Impeccable. The entertainment guys are present but never intrusive. The food is good, really good (I do not know who complains). We did 2 shore tours, snorkeling, snorkeling before always with the second stop at the sandbar. Both nice, give it a try. I mean, at least once in your life, let us a ride, you won't regret it.

    The island is beautiful, even if the lagoon is quite ruined (if to the changed climatic conditions, the tsunami or the carelessness of visitors is unclear). Cleanliness is excellent. The beach bungalows are comfortable but lacking any privacy (you hear everything that happens in twin room). The food is good and enough variety but forget the romantic dinners (the table is shared with other people). The three stars are for the Maldives to this resort.

    Nice, a village well organized, the boys of animation all Italians are professional, discreet and simpatcissimi. The buffet food is varied and lovely Vues, with lots of choices. From the jetty in the evening you can feed the sharks and for the brave is also possible to swim with them. Suitable for children because it is a very lively village. For lovers of white beaches, Palm trees, and the lagoon is perfect. The rooms are large with very nice bathroom. Keep everything clean. In the morning you wake up with breath-taking sea views! On the other hand you are in the Maldives!
