        Beautiful location, very friendly & helpfull crew. They realy do their upper best to give their guests all what they want and need. Snorkling is just amazing there, nice reef. Also the beach area is a very nice place. Ideal resort to relax and enjoy the nature, the view and eachother :)

        The food is in buffet style, a mixture of all kind of foods is available. Its not haute cuisine but eatable. Also a lot of the food was Italian oriented. Would be nice to eat some more local specialities, since you can eat pasta everywhere .... Lot of Italian people there, they come there in group. Nothing wrong with this, but the whole setup there is focussed to them, there were even explanations at the reception written solely in Italian ... Makes you feel more in Italy then at an exotic island. Only a few sunbeds at the beach area, almost a fight to get a spot which makes this topic priority to look at for the crew in my opinion.

        Wonderful place to relax, we traveled with our 4 young children and everyone had a great time. If you want to relax and unwind this is your place. Rooms are big, clean and the view from our ground floor room looked out over the water. Each ground floor room has their own sunbeds and swings so you have the choice of heading to the beach sunbeds or just lazing around outside your room. Rooms are cleaned twice daily. The snorkeling around the island was fabulous, we saw baby reef sharks, sting rays and a huge variety of fish. The snorkeling on the jetty side of the island is the better however even our 4 year old could comfortably snorkel on the beach side. The kids enjoyed playing with the islands hermit crabs, snorkeling, table tennis and never once did we get "i'm bored" Food was really nice with a good selection to suit all needs. Our waiter (Anis) was exceptional, on the first day we asked for a straw and he made sure every meal after there was a straw awaiting when we arrived, he also remembered how we liked our tea and coffee, just little things that really made a difference. Each day there is a different activity that you can take part in such as a trip to a local island, swim with whale sharks, swim with manta rays, fishing trips, diving (they offer a free intro dive which our boys loved). During our stay there was a mix of honeymooners and family's and although the island is small it never felt crowded.

        The ground floor room we had was great however the people above us seemed to be constantly walking (thudding) around in their room and it was quite noisy at night when we were trying to sleep.

        I loved that it was all inclusive except for alchol

        Alcohol was not included in the inclusive package

        The island is beautiful. The hotel staff is kind and smiling all the time. The food is good, especially grilled fishs, except the deserts. The cocktails are very good but might sound expensive.

        Deserts were very poor. Sea flight was much too early (06:30 am) while our plane was scheduled at 11:20 in Male : we had to wake up at 05:45 on our last day and then wait 4 hours in Male!

        i really liked everything bout this hotel specially beach

        the island is really far from Male, after i reached to male i took the Air Taxi for 45 Min and then a boat for an hour to the hotel. Air Taxi cost me 330 $ for ticket

        We had a fantastic stay at Ranveli. It is a small, quiet, low key, unpretentious but beautiful island which is exactly what we were looking for and has a fantastic beach which often felt like we had to our ourselves. Great snorkeling, and food was good and pretty varied. All staff we found to be very friendly and welcoming. Room was very spacious and comfortable and, whilst not brand new, was very well maintained. Rooms located in a beautifully kept tropical garden in the middle of the island. Prices of drinks etc have been revised since some of the reviews on this site and seemed pretty reasonable overall. Seaplane transfer is expensive but I think this goes for most resorts in the Maldives and its a cost you cant really avoid if the resort is any distance away from the capital. Of course you can find resorts that offer a more luxurious experience than Ranveli but prices will usually be eye watering and we really enjoyed how relaxed and low key it was. Overall we were extremely satisfied with our stay and it more than met our expectations for the price we were paying.

        Dive centre slightly disorganized (think they were lacking a couple of staff)

        Everything's just wonderful. Pleasantly full compliance with the information presented on the site with the reality! Definitely recommend the hotel to friends and family. Perfect for those who like to retreat without the hustle and bustle. Charming garden design and buildings, soulful (!) Staff, food - varied and tasty cocktails and fresh juices (the price of a bar - small) - better never tried, SPA - an expensive but extremely high quality, cleanliness of rooms, beach, pool! Overall this was what I wanted!

        Unfortunately, there were problems with the reverse transfer - seaplane flight to Male was and so butt. But it was canceled. As a result, we came to check in half an hour of departure. Do not see why we can not be sent to Malé earlier flight seaplane?

        I like it was an hotel on an Island by itself, with so many life: nature, flora and fauna. Service was excelente, food great and the place was completely set up for relaxing and enjoing the sea snorkeling.

        A very small island but it's a good place to relax. If you are after a sea & sun holiday then it is your place. There was a planned activity for each day such as sunset fishing, snorkling for turtles or Manta, etc... of course with the extra cost. Some of them could be interesting. Food was good, tasty. Stuff were very friendly (most of them). Some of the rooms were under refurbishment, ours was above average. Good space in the room, not very modern but kept very clean. Rooms were cleaned twice a day. I think Ranveli Village is a good place only if the price is right.

        If you're looking for some entartainment together with sea and the sun it probably is not the best place. We've been there mid July. The resort was full more than 60%. May be it was why there were no activities at all. Neither during the day nor at nights. There was no water sports centre either as adveretised. Well to be honest, if you're interested in diving that's the ONLY water sports activity you can do. Do not expect Booked.neting, etc... Breakfast was ok-ish. Internet was free however it never ever worked properly. I think Ranveli Village is a good place only if the price is right.

        Food, weather, people, sealife, nice quiet place!

        price of getting to the hotel - almost 700$ for 2 persons. I think it costs cheaper, but tourists have to pay...

        Very peacefull place, good sea, good place for diving, not bad meal

        All drinks are for money (even water in rooms).
