"I've been to the Maldives. Excellent for pure relaxation, and watersports, particularly for couples. If you want something else, such as sightseeing or are travelling with children, I would suggest going elsewhere. (My personal opinion)"
ojos azul claro :
"If you are looking for somewhere more idyllic and less touristy/expensive try the Andaman islands instead ! Only go to the Maldives if you want to go celebrity spotting which is an anorak sport like trainspotting. You are not an anorak!!!!"
Strongbow :

kayak_number_12 :
"Yes, I have been to several resorts in the Maldives. I go further north or to the newer resorts in the south near Gan, which is just being developed. Depends if you want to snorkel, scuba, surf ... or just get away for an escape. See many pictures and some very positive feedback on Kurumba Island below ... enjoy."

"Been to Kurumba. It's one of the most established resorts in the Maldives. It's frequently used for official events and functions so service should be good. (If I remember right President Clinton stayed in Kurumba during his visit to Maldives after the tsunami) But it's close proximity to the the capital island and the airport may or may not be good depending on what you are looking for. It all depends on what you'd like to do in the Maldives. Are you going for purely relax? Then there are 'quieter' resorts away from the capital with less distractions by passing boats or planes. (Although its not as bad as it sounds since almost all islands are good). If you are going for diving or other sports you should check if its close to good dive sites, etc (again most areas are good if you are an amateur?) Surfing? Then there are other resorts with access to good surf spots. And the list goes on... Try the review links such as the one below."
