Rated 5 out of 5 by Paul45 A perfect relaxing getaway
Two of us travelled to the resort for a 3 day stay. Everything ran smoothly, the staff were exceptionally friendly and met any requests that we had. There is a wide variety of cuisine to meet all tastes; the food is of an excellent standard. The island is well designed providing ample opportunity to relax with privacy as well as participate in water sports and other activities if you wish to do so. Amongst the top SPG hotels I have stayed at.

Rated 4 out of 5 by rsardana hotel is great but activities you need to plan
hotel room are great so is the property
but you need to well plan your stay
when you want to do water sports and other acrivities as they all are advertiised poorly
avoid fishing as its boring
its not the ideal fishing with a fishing rod just a wrapped nilon rope on a ring and u throw it other activites also please plan as not all are totally worth the price as well
food options are few so plan well thai is great

Rated 5 out of 5 by Setters4 Diving and Feasting
Divemaster Andrea is the best we have experienced in over 25 years of diving; she took us to great sites, was always vigilant and caring about our dives and paid scrupulous attention to equipment, which was of a very high standard. Quite simply, it could not get any better, anywhere.
We also loved the Manager, Ursula, who treated us like royalty as well as friends. Her exceptional staff are warm, friendly and also very caring about guests' comfort and needs.
There are wonderful and varied choices for dining and we loved the food and wines offered in all of them. We also highly recommend the villas at the end of the road: they are beautifully designed, furnished, situated, and of course romantic. How many hotels care enough to have room attendants create exquisite "paintings" using meticulously placed florals on your duvet?
"Perfect" seems insufficient in describing our experience at this exceptional resort.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Kasun Excellant Place to Relax
I visited Sheraton Full Moon Maldives over the weekend that was a superb experience . I really had a nice holiday with your Resort, Your staff was really helpful & efficient towards my wants & needs, Your island gave me an impression of home away from Home atmosphere, the Room décor & amenities played a very good sense with my holiday during my visit I visited Sand cost/Main restaurant /Anchorage bar with lovely food and beverage .
Even though some travelers commented on the trip advisor that your resort is commercialized when I compare with other resorts it was a real calm & quite resort In Maldives It is an unique resort in Maldives with a different passion . before I step in to Sheraton Full Moon Maldives I had an impression of Commercialized Resort since it is very close to Male however when I arrived to your place only I realized that it was full of homely effect .

Rated 4 out of 5 by Chas Almost, or just enough, not more
If you're going to manage a property in the Maldives you have to go "all in" and be at your best throughout the experience - this is not quite it. As a guest it takes some work on your part to enjoy the Sheraton Full Moon. It's a beautiful property and the facilities/rooms look great even though other reviewers challenge that. It's just that there's always a small problem wherever you go. Lots of staff to welcome you and lots of staff to say goodbye but it's all the stuff in between that comes up short. A bad meal, a flood in the bathroom, loud music from a private party at 1am, cushioned lounges at the outdoor bar that get covered "after" the rainstorm ... etc, etc. etc. We go the the Maldives to relax and to know that the hotel is managing our experience and foreseeing potential problems and distractions. Not so, here. I know Starwood can deliver much better at this resort.

Rated 4 out of 5 by HappyFamily Outstanding overall experience
Excellent staff across every area of the resort! Friendly, attentive, responsive to all requests. Best diving experience I've ever had and this was due in large part to the amazing team at the dive center. Andrea, Rene, and Tomoko are the perfect combination of extreme professionalism and fun. Every dive was extremely well-planned and coordinated and each one exceeded our expectations. Great job!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Julie999 an amazing stay
We stayed at Sheraton end of dec.2012 to 10th of january 2013. Originally planned for a week , we had to extend because of a medical condition. I couldn't recommand a better place... we have been helped and taken care of from the first minute at the Sheraton Full Moon, to the hospital appointment process, to the diving experience for my partner, absolutely everything has been great.
Ursula and her team did a brilliant job and make us feel more than welcomed and absolutely looked after. The Sheraton Maldives offers as well peace of mind and tranquility, as even when the hotel is busy at one of the highest time of the season, you can find very quiet spot on one of the beaches. New year's eve was really great , the atmosphere was very joyfull and the Chef Sven had done a brilliant buffet. We are very highly recommanding the place and we will be very happy to return. Definitely one of my best hotel stay.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Lily Ocean view from water bungalow is great
I stayed in water bungalow for 2nights, 2-May 2013 & 3-May 2013 & my room number is 113 .
The window near to bath tub is a bit old & the water in the shower area is stuck.
Some of the staffs in the restaurant are NOT really friendly to ASIAN especially in the FEAST restaurant for breakfast. They should greet & friendly to all the guests.
I love the ocean view from our water bungalow.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Brian413 Sheer perfection!
The location is wonderful, the snorkeling is divine, but what really makes the difference is the quality of the staff. It seems like mgt really cares, and it shows. All the employees are great, but particular thanks to Shaffaz in the bar, Alisa in reception, and all the staff in the watersports area who are very professional and safety conscious. A truly wonderful experience!

We have just returned home after staying at your Resort in a Water Bungalow. From the time we arrived at the counter at The Male Airport the service was nothing but professional, for the 7 nights we stayed. The accomodation, the food and the helpfulness of all the staff was outstanding.
We had the best ever holiday and would recommend this Resort to anyone of our friends.

Just wanted to say a very big thank you to the Hotel Management and Staff at the Sheraton Full Moon Resort and Spa. We have just returned from a 5 night stay and we had a fabulous time. We enjoyed every aspect of the hotel from the F&B outlets, to the pool, the beach, the kids club....even the spa. Thank you for all the wonderful memories. We hope to return very soon!!

We have just arrived back from Honeymoon at Sheraton and were definitely not disappointed! The setting is simply stunning and the staff are excellent. As everything is imported however it is a little expensive and prices seen always have a ++, which is just something to be aware of when saving.
Overall, we couldn't have had a more fantastic time in a beautiful place!

This was not hotel, but home...keeping in mind I travel alot and stay in many hotels, but Sheraton Full Moon stands much above it...Cuisine was great, with Indian Chef approaching what would you like us to prepare...you do not hear such things in lot of other hotels, Front Office and Everybody in Resort was genuinely filled with warmth....best hotel of my life..

Rated 4 out of 5 by Traveller28 Food not up to par
Overall great experience with the location, over water bungalow, weather. The only complaint is decent food for the value. The Feast buffet was not good for dinner...especially considering the price of USD 84 per person. The Thai restaurant was decent, Sand Coast was good value but only a few good items on the menu.

Rated 4 out of 5 by TripToStar good family hotel
it is nice to stay , environment is family friendly, and this can be also said for honey moon couple. we stayed at cottage in front of the beach which is best for family, but for couple , can stay at water villa. beach is very beautiful, during daytime maybe a bit hot for kids, but from there are many activities for kids to play at hotel.

More than lived up to expectations. The staff always had a smile and after 2 days remembered our room number and name. The staff at the beach bar were fantastic along with the dive centre staff. Very sad to leave and already organising another trip next March. 30 degrees on Friday 1 when we got home. From white sand to snow in 24 hours.

My girlfriend and I visited the Sheraton Maldives Full Moon back in June 2009. As platinum members, we were upgraded to a water bungalow. The room and the service from the hotel was top notch and best in class. The Sheraton Full Moon was one of the best hotels we have ever visited. We have been telling all our friends how great it was.

Rated 4 out of 5 by OlegShv Good hotel near Male
This hotel is close to Male. For those who look for a more "detached from the world" experience, look elsewhere. For us this closeness was a plus because we did not want to spend another hour on a boat or a seaplane.
Snorkeling is not great on the hotel reef. There is more sealife on the rear side where the water villas are. Make sure to sign up for snorkeling and BBQ trips at the watersports center. They take you to other places near by where snorkeling and diving are amazing!
Rooms are cleaned twice a day and the staff are great. Upon our arrival the scent in our room was not great - it felt like an old mushy AC, but after our complain the staff took care of that.
Regarding dining - skip the dinner buffet, it is overpriced. "Sea Salt", "Baan Thai", and "Anchorage Bar" were our favorite places for food. It's best to make table reservations in advance.
We went for a couple of treatments at the Spa. It is not cheap, but I would definitely recommend it.
Overall, a good rating.

Rated 4 out of 5 The hotel is cool!
The hotel is located at an ideal location, just 10-15 mins by boat. It has good choices of food except some maybe slightly pricy. The Anchorage Bar is an ideal place to chill out and relax. While we can call for buggy to bring us around, I would prefer an attached buggy for the Ocean Villa that I stayed.

location, of course, is the key. add to it the design,and ambient, yet above all, staff attitude, friendliness, efficiency. Next come the food quality,
even if not the top rated palce for home- reef diving, once again staff attitude and teh palce we did dive are outstanding.

Rated 5 out of 5 Excellent place to start and enjoy diving
Our summer family holiday has been made memorable by the excellent environment and services of this hotel.
My younger son and myself received our open water diving certificate from the excellent coaching in the diving center. The warmth of the boating stuff, professional instructor Tony, Andrea and Chris, variety of fellow divers from all over the world, the overwhelmingly beauty of the coral gardens, caves and abundance of sea lives... all these have boost started our diving experiences.
My wife and I have been smazed by the morning snorkelling, slipping off the stairs of the "water bungalow": the crytal clear water, beautiful corals and plenty of fishes including all the colorful tropical fishes, squids, stingray and sharks.
The fishing trip is also interesting - you may have a good catch which really put a big smile on your face and fond memory.
I would recommend this place to anyone loves diving and nature. It is also good for those who wants to relax on the beach, a complete separation from busy metropolitan life.
