Relaxing Heaven
Well kept peaceful and modern facility, everything was fantastic, what more can I say.watersports team were great hosts with fishing and paddle boarding trips, try the wine tasting, it's great fun and quite an education. All the restaurant food was good quality, we loved the service and food the most in Roma. My only down side was on the return to the airport, there is no support from the hotel here, there should be, as another group will pretend to be and over charge for various services from the hotel and offer chargeable services.

10/10 Exceptional

The dolphin ocean suite was excellent, with splendid views of the vast open ocean and waters so crystal clear you can spot all types of reef fish, including a black tip shark which hung out a lot at ours. The bed was comfortable and the room was much more spacious than I had envisioned by looking at photos. The bathroom design also took my breath away, something I did not expect from photos posted online. Pictures simply cannot do the design any justice. I would highly recommend the dolphin suites to everyone who doesn't mind walking a distance to and from the suite. We travelled with young kids, so the hotel was very kind to offer their buggy service to us. But guests without kids or without mobility issues are not offered the same, and I can imagine the walk being quite tiring under the hot sun, especially if you are coming from the other end of the island where the spa and Mediterranean restaurant are. Service was excellent, and by far the best I have experienced in recent years. The staff seem genuinely happy to be working there and are keen to always help us out where needed. Everyone from the restaurant waiters to the attendants at the kids'club playroom were super friendly and forthcoming with information. Very glad to have made this place our first destination after borders reopened!

Sun Siyam Iru Veli will always be our favorite vacation spot. Went for our honeymoon, flight was super long, but It was all worth It. All staff is very courteous and accommodating. Food was just amazing! The rooms are gorgeous, highly recommend the Ocean Villa. Our own little paradise. Would definitely come back some day.
