This was our 5th visit to the Maldives. We love these islands, we started at Makanudu, in the North Male Atoll, which we thought was excellent, then we gradually spent more money each time, going to Filitheyo a resort in the North Nilandhoo Atoll, then Lily Beach in the Ari Atoll, which was very expensive, but probably the best place...

This is the second time we have visited Ellaidhoo. It is paradise at a reasonable price. After almost 20 years of visiting the Maldives it is becoming more expensive each year but Ellaidhoo are keeping their prices at a reasonable level and we just hope that this continues. I would urge that you ignore any negative reports on this island....
