We just came back from there and had the most wonderful time.
Let’s start from the top: it’s not a 5 stars resort. It’s a solid 4, and as such it’s priced appropriately. The jump to the next level resort will be at least 50% more and I’m not sure the difference is worth it.
The resort is situated on its own sandy little island which you get to by a sea plane from Male and takes 40 minutes.
The grounds are well kept as are the main facilities but the rooms are in need of a refurbishment- this is not to say they are run down (they are actually very nice and convenient), but can use a brush up. We highly recommend taking the water villas. It’s part of the Maldives experience and the fact that you can hop into the crystal water from your balcony makes it memorable. The water and beaches are lovely but be aware there are plenty of sea weeds which tend to set adrift on the shores (though staff is doing their best to clean it up).
The food was fantastic to our taste - extensive variety with emphasis for Indian type cuisines (lots of curry). The lunch and dinner deserts are especially delicious.
We found the staff very courteous and pleasant though the management’s attitude towards “the guest is always right” is somewhat fuzzy... :-)
ONE LAST WORD OF ADVICE: do take the all inclusive package. It’s worth it. Remember you’re on a desolated island with nowhere else to shop for food and drinks thus completely dependent on the resort’s excessive fees. Thus making the all inclusive generous package worth while - especially as it includes 2 free excursions.
Bottom line - we highly recommend this resort!

We went for a family holiday but had a terrible experience. The management has no hospitality knowledge and is extremely Rude and Arrogant.

Problems faced with the Hotel Management and Staff:
1. The Senior and Front Office Staff answers to all resorted related questions are very vague.
2. The Front Office Staff and Concierge (Extrusion) Staff didn’t value the importance of guests’ timings and schedules. They claimed to understand English well but conveyed wrong timings to us for a special excursion. This was inspite of us confirming the timing with them for 3 times. We missed our excursions because of this.
3. The Front Office Manager was always busy whenever we wanted to speak to him. Once he gave us an appointment to meet him at 9 pm, when we reached Front Office to meet him as per his given time, the front office staff told us that the manager has gone for a shower. Was he the guest or were we the guests? He didn’t respect the time he had given to us. The Front Office Manager drank, danced, played snooker along with guests and thought that was hospitability but forgot to get involved when we faced end number of problems with the resorts external agencies for excursions
4. It’s very important that food is good especially when all 3 meals are to be had at the resort. At Medhufushi the food was very bad. It was a struggle to find items which tasted good from the buffet spread. And for vegetarians there were hardly any options.

Excursions and Water Activites are one of the main reasons to visit Maldives. But at the resort there is lack of activities compared to other resorts and the 3rd party agencies hired by the resort was horrible. We faced the following issues with them:
1. The Water Sports Center had only 1 person handling the bookings as well as take guests for water sports. Anytime we would call or visit the water sports center to make booking there was no one present for bookings.
2. A German company runs the Diving Center. The German Manager and the Staff of the Diving Center was extremely racist and didn’t care about being hospitable. The German Manager didn’t bother to get involved when we had issues while booking Scuba Diving. The Manager didn’t even have the courtesy to apologize for his staffs’ racist behaviour.

Would we recommend this property to anyone? No ways. There are many good properties in Maldives where they understand the meaning of hospitality and tourism. Medhufushi was a waste of Money.

My stay at Medhufushi Resort was very relaxing and enjoyable.

we took a double family beach villa . it was excellent! clean, on the beach, a pleasure.... i would not reccomend the water villas, as on the reflux hours, all the island guest are there to see the animals and fish, and is quite noisy.... beside, the water villas are kind of crowded.... i advise to take the full board program when you book, otherwise it will cost you lot of money.... everything is extra, including water.... you get one bottle per room per day "complimentary" and the rest ----which you have to drink----is quite expensive.... this was the really dissapointed thing.... like, what? to pay for water when you go to dinner, which is already paid? food was acceptable.... buffet, and kind of ok.... do not expect for a gourmet restaurant, is more the cantina style, still is ok. everyone will find something nice to eat----but not a cullinary experience. i reccomend to take the free boat to snorkling every day, and also the dolphins tour and the 2 islands tour. we will return---no doubt----as it was one of the best vacations we had.

Room tip: beach vila, numbers 218 till 230

The sheets smell a lot. Beds are just 4-star level. No coral around,no snorkeling around. Reception people let us pay,then left only an IT service and let us wait to pay for over one hour! Worst hotel

Room tip: Don't go to this hotel please! They don't give life jackets when you pay 110$ per person to go out fishing!
