Ultimate guide (July 2018)
is a small island in North Male (up)
Atoll, Maldives. The beaches are good, but coastal vegetation is rather poor, the bottom has a lot of broken corals, and the water is shallow. Around the island there is a reef with good snorkelling, and there are no waves in the lagoon. Shore and seabed: sand.  Find hotels in Eriyadu

Hotels  Eriyadu Island Resort & Spa
is a 4-star property with room's rates from US$300 per night. This is a very good price, but the hotel is more like a 3-stars. Anyway this is a budget option with a good value for money.
You should be ready for some unpleasant surprises. For example, drinking water is not for free, even if you order Full Board meal plan. Duplex bungalows features noise from the neighbouring room. There are also complaints about the service. Find hotels in Eriyadu

Any comments or ideas are also appreciated:
Now they are called Smartline Eriyadu and fares start from $500 per night (room). As for me this is very expensive, as I've been for about $100 per room. It was some kind of a promo fare. But restaurant was really expensive.
The beach was much better, than I expected. But that was probably because of that low fare, I've payed for the room.
