How many nights would you stay in the Maldives?

I figure you'd get bored after about a week.. Anyone venture to stay longer than that?

Anyone here stayed at the Sheraton? Do you get to access the club lounge with the SPG business card?
I could be mistaken, but I thought I heard from someone who went there who said that it's very close to an industrial island with little privacy and poor views.

Whatever you stay will be perfect.
I've done 2 nights and 5 nights, both were great.

If you're going to fly to MLE for two days, stay home.

5 nights was perfect. Less, I wouldve felt cheated. I could've done a few more.

I've done 5 nights and 6 nights. Each time I felt I could have stayed longer.  7 sounds even better.

I did 6 Nights at the SR and would love to go back for another 7 nights given the chance, the trick is to include activities, such as scuba diving and if your  not certified you can do discovery scuba diving without certification, Snorkeling, Fishing, massage(s),  Kayaking boating and just relaxing etc.

Remember the day you arrive at the resort and the day you leave are short days.

I've spent 1 night in EZE, 2 in CDG, LYR, MLE, TLV, etc.
You make the most of the time you have.

+1 Stayed five nights and it was perfect, maybe would have wanted max one more night.

Planning on staying at the Conrad and have a departing flight out of MLE at 9:10 AM.
From the Conrad's website: Guests on international flights departing before 09:00 will transfer the previous afternoon and require overnight accommodation in Malé. Any ideas if there is a way around this? where to stay as close as possible to the airport?
