Comments I will begin on a positive note. The people working at the resort and dive shop are extremely friendly and willing to please. You couldn't ask for a more pleasant staff. We booked this resort as divers. The Maldives was one of the last locations we hadn't been and had dreamed of going. It is a difficult expensive trip from the US. Most of the guests are Chinese with a few British, French and Russian mixed in. The resort is touted as 5 star. It is okay; clean and neat, but also lacking. The floor in the restaurant is sand and the fleas are busy. The décor leaves a bit to be desired. The food is buffet and there is ample quantity. As divers, the set up is difficult as lunch ends at EXACTLY 2:30 pm. There is a beach bar that is hot and in the sun with a limited menu that can be used until 4:00 pm. It is an all inclusive, including the liquor. They are not skimpy with either. The resort caters mainly to people on their honeymoon. The dives are set up to leave at 9:00 am. 2 days there was only 1 dive offered in the morning. The divers are advanced and beginners. There are small groups.

I flew Qatar for 5 years when working out of Doha. I thought the airline was great

I believe that one could have a good experience given the fact there were no complications in dealing with them. I said that their stewards and stewardesses are excellent. Were you ever a "no show?" I still stand by my comments. We had no one to help us and felt that we should been alerted to their policies about the inability to make a flight. I've NEVER had an airline refuse to put us on another flight because of missing one through no fault of our own. I have never had an airline employee treat us as rudely as the Qatar employee in Male. We have been in business for 43 years and would never treat someone the way we were treated. There are exceptions to every rule, don't you think? They could have honored our original tickets and rebooked us on the flight we were charged to take. It's hard to pay twice!

Did you buy trip insurance before hand? DAN has an excellent travel insurance policy (separate from the dive insurance) that would have covered delays, missed flights, etc. I even recovered $2000 in medical bills not covered by my basic medical insurance when I was hospitalized over Thanksgiving weekend on a family visit (not dive travel).
