В целом не плохо, но есть два замечания, которые было бы необходимо отметить на вашем сайте. 1. Персонал говорит только на английском языке! Нет никого, кто говорит по-французски, по-немецки и т.д. 2. На вашем сайте указано "WI-FI free". Это не правда, и многие на это жалуются. Вам дают бесплатно 2 Гб, остальное за деньги! Для тех, кому необходим интернет для работы, это не очень удобно. 3. Всё было хорошо до момента отплытия в аэропорт. Нам потратили много нервов. Одна парочка из Германии оплатила свой тур он-лайн ещё до приезда. Во время выезда начались выяснения, платили - не платили... В итоге задержали всех пассажиров в качестве заложников на 30 минут. Мы еле успели на свой рейс. Ребята сумели в последний момент испортить впечатление от такого прекрасного отдыха.

Close to nature at Makunudu
Everything was perfect! The villa was clean and cozy, ideal for holiday mood. The food was simply amazing mainly served as a menu, and twice a week as buffet. Excellent taste and plaiting. And now comes the best part: the house reef accessible from the beach! The coral reef was not in the best shape, but it was bundled with sea life. We saw so many beautiful fishes and also big turtles, octopuses and sharks(not dangerous). The vibrant island has something special with so much life: crabs,bats, small lizards and some birds with their weird songs(sometimes at 5am) adding it to the charm. As a negative point, they were providing only 2GB per device for free.Since nothing about the extra charge was mentioned in the reservation on, we argued about it and they provided free Wi-Fi in the end. We loved this resort for simplicity and because it is close to nature in all meanings!

Very beautiful island without all the unnecessary things like swimming pool, flat screen TVs etc. It’s a real retreat from the stress of life. Great food. Rustic accommodation, understated elegance theme throughout, no plastic chairs in sight! You relax from the moment you arrive due to the chilled atmosphere the staff create. So much sea life sharks, turtles, eagle ray, sting ray etc. I will be back someday to lovely Makunudu.

Peaceful, Beautiful Manunudu
We love Makunudu and have returned there 3 times for its peacefulness and tranquility. A beautifully simple quiet hotel island, with just beach rooms, a single restaurant and bar. Snorkelling a plenty, good dive centre, some other water sports, no gym or pool.

Beautiful Natural Island
From the moment we arrived to the moment we left the staff were so helpful and friendly. Couldnt do enough to ensure our holiday was pretty much perfect. The resort management, Ali and Sunil, were always on hand for any questions. The island is so beautiful and unspoilt ... the chef is brilliant and the food amazing. I know there are some renovations planned especially to the bathrooms which are now a little tired but overall the standard of the bungalows are very good. The bars/restaurant are lovely and the views over the island/water are breath taking ... the sunset cocktail bar is a must to visit as the sunsets are spectacular to see. There is no need for towels on sunbeds at 4am! Each bungalow has its own designated beds which are comfortable with mattresses and sit on the beautiful beach outside your bungalow. I would definitely visit again ... 2 weeks flew by! My only suggestion would be to perhaps make the island adults only .... there were very few children when we were there ... but they did make themselves heard. Overall, a holiday at Makunudu Island is definitely a must
