9.5 Excellent (646 reviews)
Overview Reviews
When you stay at Dusit Thani Maldives in Mudhdhoo, you'll be on the waterfront and within the vicinity of Hanifaru Bay and Nelivaru Finolhu. Featured amenities include a 24-hour business center, complimentary newspapers in the lobby, and dry cleaning/laundry services. A roundtrip airport shuttle is available for a surcharge.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Absolutely everything. Starting from arrival, a representative from Dusit Thani met us at Male International airport and took us to the lounge to wait for our domestic flight to Dharavandhoo. They took care of everything from check in to bringing our luggage to our room. I stayed in the Ocean villa and it was the best decision I ever took. The room is amazing and extremely comfortable with all possible amenities (amazing TV with chromecast, bose speakers, molten brown bath accessories, slippers, bathrobe etc.). The swimming pool and sunbeds were amazing and direct access to the sea made it easier for snorkeling. The food at the property is amazing and the chef's are super accommodating for vegetarians. They cooked for us whatever we asked for and it all tasted amazing. The all-inclusive package included hard drinks as well, so we loved it.
Cons: Would be a good idea to include mini bar in the all inclusive package. Apart from this, absolutely everything was perfect.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: very thing was good
Cons: NIL
9.6 Excellent
Pros: Nice resort, staff is smiling and really tries their best to exceed your expectations. The island is not too small and not too large either, bungalows on land are nicely apart from each other. Trees and bushes nicely preserved. Rooms well kept, good standard. Good dive center as well as other activities offered. Nice for a relaxing romantic getaway for two. It is good that the hotel has three restaurants and you can dine at all of them if you have half board. With a few exceptions everything is included and portions are reasonable in size.
Cons: The Maldives are generally overpriced in comparison to the rest of the world. This hotel is no exception. It is understood that almost all food has to be brought in and it adds to the costs, but I think food is overpriced for what you get. The costs of upkeeping a really wide international selection at breakfast must be huge, so perhaps a suggestion here - sometimes less is more, meaning offer less selection, but at an even higher level of quality. Any other service offered is quite expensive as well since no competition exists.
9.6 Excellent
Pros: The staff and the property
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Our honeymoon was a dream come true, the staff went above and beyond to ensure that we enjoyed every second of our honeymoon, this place offers so many fun activities and also has a spa and everything you need to relax and enjoy, and I’d like to take this opportunity to thank every single one from management to housekeeping, and a special thanks to the manager Mr. Nahid, our buttler Nizam, our housekeeper Hameed, Chef Ibrahim, Azeem, Faisal from the Market restaurant, Alex and Chef Vikash for arranging our romantic dinner

9.6 Excellent
Pros: This resort is truley exceptional - the amazing seaplane trip delivered us at a this jewel of an island with aqua waters around white coral beaches, a fantastic resort with every room on the beach and wonderful staff. The beachfront family villas with pool are worth the (considerable) expense. We loved our personalised bicycles, among many other special little touches. The highlight was the manta ray snorkel trip - unforgettable.
Cons: The weather in early October wasn't great - very windy and a lot of rain, although still 29 degrees most days. But the resort is faultless and there was plenty to do when we weren't lazing by the beach or pool.
9.6 Excellent
Pros: Chat application. Very convenient.

7.9 Good
Pros: Taking a ride on the bicycle around the island was a memory to keep forever. The water sport club was very rich in activities, you must try the seabob! The Beach Vilas very very private and quiet and extremely clean.
Cons: The food in general was very expensive and not to the standards of the resort. I personally felt cheated with the prices because they aleays use “price ++” where everything became to expensive. Also the transport by seaplane was more expensive than flying internationally!!!

Pros: Everything. Clean tidy spacious place..we got the ocean reef villa which was perfect. We were lucky to get great weather despite travelling during the monsoon season. There are around 4 different restaurants in the resort each with a different theme so we had so many options..we didnt do any activities but we still enjoyed the whole thing..would go again.
Cons: Nothing
10.0 Excellent
Pros: -Amazing, helpful staff. I would like to thank Svitlana for being professional, kind, and always available. -Upgrading to half board is a great value for money, good variety of food for dinner, different restaurant everyday. For breakfast, there is buffet + a menu for hot plates. Buffet is ok, but could be improved by not being the same everyday. - kids club is amazing and the kids loved spending time there. -beach villa is spacious. I loved it more than the reef house villa.
Cons: -There is a feel of luxury everywhere in the resort, till you see some stains on the tile of the outdoor seating area in the ocean reef villa + overused nightstand. We reported that to the resort and they said this villa is scheduled for renovations soon. I hope that happens soon. For me, I would still give 10/10 for the resort
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Everything was amazing. Everyone went above and beyond to ensure our stay was perfect. The room was beautiful and clean and was always looked after. So many choices for dinner the food was so fresh and cooked perfectly. Cannot wait to come back!

Pros: 10 out of 10 in every way! We LOVED our stay at LVIS Blancura and didn't want to leave. Everything was perfect, the location can't be beaten on the beach, the staff were excellent, the food was out of this world wonderful, small touches, grand gestures, just all of it. If this place has made it to your short list then stop wondering whether to book and just do it.
9.2 Excellent
Pros: The food at the dinner and lunch was excellent and was beyond our expectations-the chef was always present and was giving us cooking recipes if asked. The staff was superfriendly, helpful-just perfect as a team!
Cons: That we could not stay longer!
8.8 Excellent
Pros: The staff
8.8 Excellent
Pros: location in a real Maldivian town (not a resort island), "hostel vibe"--lots of people from around the world meeting up and interacting, but could also be a nice quiet couples retreat. Good for families.
Cons: Nothing, but could've had an information sheet listing schedule/cost for meals, what activities are available, whether or not they have housekeeping, etc. But this really is not very important--we easily figured it out and the laid-back feeling is a part of the charm for us!
8.3 Excellent
Pros: The staff is FAB.(Lishan is number 1, really great guy). All people are kind and always friendly and helpful. The cuisine is great, the cook is really good. The position on the beach is the best of the location. The excursions are well prepared and not too expensive so I really suggest to go and see the mantas.
Cons: The rooms have no standard windows, just a big window like in a shop constantly covered by a curtain not to be viewed from external. The lights in the room are too low, I'd have preferred some brighter bulb as it's really difficult to see.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: It’s small but cozy and self-sufficient. Great value for money option to those on a budget. Stunning tranquil views right on the property. Convenient location from Hanifaru Bay Marine Reserve and all the activity spots (fishing, diving, snorkelling etc).
Cons: Food should be more varied and have more Maldivian flavours.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Good value for money, pretty and clean rooms. Staff were all amazing. We took full board and did not regret at all! All food was delicious and it saved us bother of searching for food somewhere else. We chilled in the garden or on the beach that is right in front of the accommodation. The beach is clean and peaceful, great for snorkeling. They also offer different trips on the boat, e.g. manta watching-snorkeling, sand bank.
Cons: Everything was great. Since it is a local island, no alcohol is served here.

Pros: I have no words to describe how wonderful was our stay at Hanifaru Тransit Inn. Everything was great - big and extremely clean room, food, activities that they arrange for us. People that work there are not just staff, they became our friends. We were in Paradise, clear water, white sands, variety of fishes, palm trees and everything just 5 minutes walk from home. If you want to live Maldivian life for a while, to eat delicious food (best food at the island!), just stay at Hanifaru Transit Inn. Thank you for the best honeymoon that you helped to happened!

Pros: Very close to the beach.
Cons: All the mess at the front of the hotel.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: A comfortable and clean hotel. Very friendly and helpful owners, I want to thank them personally. They created a family atmospere for us. Very good breafasts which were a mix of local and international cuisine. Very good dinners at quite a resonable price. Close to the beach (about 12-15 minutes walk), hotel sofas on the beach.
Cons: We liked everything
10.0 Excellent
Pros: We had the most amazing 5 days on this beautiful island and were so sad to leave. The owner is absolutely brilliant and so helpful. We went solely to see the manta rays and every day he would tell us how many mantas have been spotted so we can decide whether to go. He also sorted out our transport to and from the island and met us as soon as we got to the island. The two boys who cook and clean are also fantastic offering 5* service. The breakfast is delicious and so much food! (pancakes, Maldivian options, toast, juice and tea) and we chose to eat here every night which was high quality and great value for money. With every meal we got poppadoms and fruit salad dessert included. Free tea and drinking water all day too which is a plus! On our manta trip we saw between 30-40 mantas (make sure you go near a full moon to see the most!) the trip was incredible, everything we hoped for. We also went on a snorkelling tour through the guesthouse which I highly recommend. We saw 3 turtles and a few reef sharks. The snorkelling guide was really good at spotting things out and never left us. He also was happy to take photos and films on our go pro. Dharavandhoo is really small but cosy, the bikini beach is beautiful and there is sun loungers for all. We spotted dolphins from the beach so keep an eye out! The rooms were really great, so big and comfortable. Lots of storage options. Beach towels were also included. We were there in rainy season (June) and had 2 out of 6 full days of bad rain but didn't mind as the WiFi is super fast! Thank you for an amazing stay, we hope to come back again!!

9.2 Excellent
Pros: Amazing host, we stayed only one night still were treated like Kings :) Airport pickup super dinner an very very friendly welcome. If I knew how good it is we would have stayed more on the island and let our host arrange everything. Important tip for all that want to visit the Maldives on a budget, book this accommodation and ask the host to arrange domestic flight, boat transport and all trips. This will save you a lot of money and will make the stay much more pleasant :))
Cons: Value for money is perfect, don't expect 5 star hotel for this price.

Featured amenities include complimentary newspapers in the lobby, dry cleaning/laundry services, and a 24-hour front desk. For a surcharge, guests may use a roundtrip airport shuttle (available 24 hours) and a ferry terminal shuttle.
9.2 Excellent
Pros: A great guest house run by fantastic, friendly, very helpful people. Great place for active recreation (a diving base, fishing with local fishermen, a wonderful beach and the sea). Nice rooms, lunches and dinners on the beach, great cuisine. I highly recommend
9.6 Excellent
Pros: The food was really good and varied. Friendly chef as well! Friendly personnel, local people as well. Free water which was refilled often. Room and bathroom spacious. Nice little garden en seats outside. We were involved in all the feast activities that were happening that week. It was great to have been a part of that. Martin arranged all activities and transfers and was flexible and very kind.
Cons: The room was not at the beach as the photos suggested but a 2min walk (still really close). Some of the personnel did not speak English very well so sometimes it was difficult to communicate. Not a lot of warm water in the shower. Depended on the other guests using their shower around the same time.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: The guesthouse is cozy. Located on the very clean island of Maalhos it suits all your needs. The rooms are spacious, equipped with a comfy bed, AC, fridge, kettle. The open bathroom is luxurious. The room has a small terrace with two chairs.The meals are served directly at the beach with a wonderful view. You can book lunch and dinner and I highly recommend to do so. You'll get typical Maldivian dishes, very tasty. Water is served in nice glass bottles (reduces plastic waste) and you can get as much as you want. The owner Martin picked me up at the airport in Dharavandhoo. From there it's just 10 min. by speedboat to Maalhos. The island has a lively house reef, home to many turtles. If you're into diving the ambitious instructors of "Maldivers" will take care of you. I went on a manta trip with them which I enjoyed very much. You can also book yoga lessons. I recommend "Islandsparetreat", Kate's sunrise yoga at a sandbank is legendary. About the island: It's a very traditional island, where you can experience local life first hand. Women come out in the evening and sit together in the sand, children are playing. As a guest you'll be part of the daily life. Ask Martin or Kate for coconut oil. It's a very authentic souvenir, produced by local women.

8.8 Excellent
Pros: Our stay at Madi Finolhu Guest House was such a nice and relaxing holiday at Maldives. The guest house is on a beautiful local island (Maalhos) were no touristy resorts destroy the corals and wildlife. The people at the village are all very friendly and helpful. We had a warm welcome (incl. pick up from the airport) and nice intro by Martin, owner of the guest house, about the Maldives and the local people. The room had a nice open shower which we really liked. The staff has been friendly and helpful throughout the whole stay. Lunch and dinner was always served on the beach which was really nice. The guest house also offers a bunch of activities, starting from snorkeling tour to night night fishing. Prices are more than okay if you compare it to the resort one. We made a lot of friends up there and will definitely come back! Thanks to all from Madi Finolhu Guest House.
Cons: We had new rooms, maybe a TV would be nice but we didn’t need it because we didn’t spend much time at the room;-)

Pros: Amazing house reef with shark and ray fish visitors, friendly staff, quiet island, good food. we travelled with infant and overall experience was very good. Reethi Beach Resort offers lovely, joyful and peaceful vacation
Cons: All the things regarding to hotel was very good except location of it :) We suffered a bit on local transport between Male airport and resort. We had been directed to "domestic flight + boat" option which took 4-5 hours in both legs and really wished we opt for "seaplane" (wanted to change on our return but been told to order 3 days in advance which we did not). As suggestion to anyone to stay in Reethi Beach Resort - go for seaplane if you do not want to spend half of the day trying to arrive hotel from Male!
6.3 Good
Pros: The location! Baa Atoll with all the beautiful islands and the mantas - it is a fantastic destination.
Cons: Staff is only doing the minimum of the job instead of making the holiday of the guests an unforgettable experience! The rooms and the facilities are quite old. The resort is overrated and overpriced. It’s all about check-in, pay and check-out and nobody cares really about the guests. The only job is to make money and charging for every single breath!
8.0 Excellent
Pros: I took the All-Inclusive rate it was the best choice but it didn't include fresh juices at all, over all meals is very good ,wide diversity and options. Overall I really recommend that you take the all-inclusive rate. they celebrated my honeymoon and birthday very well, they organized the international flights with the domestic flight with the boat transfer very good.
Cons: everything outside all-inclusive rate is very expensive. massage and water activities were very very expensive. the safe were out of power it took them more then 4 calls across 2 days to come and fix it, if your a water heavy drinker your gonna have an issue because the only give you 1 (1.5L) bottle per day. the cleaning staff it took them ages to come and clean your room, they tell you free WIFI but it's NOT in your room if you want to connect you have to go to reception or the main restaurant and it's NOT working you have to buy internet broadband package with very high price.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: It is awesome place to live on Baa Atoll. Amazing house reef close to villas with fish of different size and colors, reef sharks. Excursion trip to Hanifaru Bay to meet 30+ mantas and see a lot of dolphins in ocean and snorkeling in amazing clear water to see turtle on another island. Good enough rooms in Indonesian style on seashore. Very helpful staff on the island. Comfortable trip on seaplane from hotel to Male
Cons: Taxes are not included in price for stay and for excursion. To restricted and so expensive option for transfer from Dharavandhoo. WiFi only available on bar and reception and connection to internet is not stable.
8.8 Excellent
Pros: Amazing sea and coral reef (Home reef), which begins at 5 meters from the beach! Good restaurant, it is possible to eat 24*7; comfort weather, nice green environment, helpful staff. Cleaning is twice a day, which is quite good. It is cash-free island - it is really comfortable. There is everything that you needed, but quite simple - even Clinic, which is opened almost every day, 5 hours a day. You can walk barefoot all the time. That is not a luxury resort, but I would definitely recommend it for a great vacation!
Cons: Cleaning: do it more precisely/ Change towels more often.

It’s a pity we could not meet them. When we arrived Appi was already outside waiting for us to bring us to the place (which is just a few meters walking from the airport, amazing!) there, we got a refreshing welcome drink while Appi introduced us all the members of staff. Our stay was perfect from the first day till the end, the guest house is cozy and warm and the garden is fantastic !! but I must say that coffee recently grounded to wake up in the morning is the best!!! (we are a kind of caffeine addicted

Pros: The staff are exceptional. Appi, Faisal, Shereef, and the three who cleaned the room, prepared our food and assisted on the snorkeling tours. They took care of our requests and assisted in every way they could to make our stay memorable. Always willing to find a solution to any requests you may have. Thank you all for a wonderful vacation. We saw mantas but left one day too early for the whale shark sighting.
Cons: Dinner was served too late for us.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Though a bit far away from the center of the island the location was great. Staff was very hospitable.
Cons: Though the toilets were clean, there was some unpleasant smell in the toilet even when we checked in. Would suggest some freshener that would keep the smell off.

Its kitchen is excellent, you don't want to eat out. The Liquid Salt Water Dive Center's staff is also professional, absolute safety divings, with the best diving boat of the island.
9.6 Excellent
Pros: + Friendly staffs + Clean and comfortable room + Nice food for lunch and dinner + The owner of the guesthouse also owns the dive shop and they fly drone over to Hanifaru Bay to check on a daily basis. Hence, they only inform and bring their guests there when there’s Manta Rays in the Bay. + The owner, Ryshn, and the GM, Ahmed, are very chill and relaxed. + Nice beach and lots of fishes just to see when snorkeling outside the guesthouse

Featured amenities include a business center, dry cleaning/laundry services, and a 24-hour front desk. A roundtrip airport shuttle is provided for a surcharge during limited hours.
3.0 Mediocre
Pros: Nothing worth mentioning.. except the staff member who gave me his laptop to use iTunes..
Cons: The pictures of the facilities are NOT true!! They show you the best, in the best situation in best season and then you get hit by the reality. And they blame the weather for it.. and the solution would be them saying ; we will upgrade you and you will pay! Communication is terrible in English. Phone was not working, had to call them from my mobile with ROAMING TARRIF to order food! They seem to be incapable to solve problems.. No hot water! (Heater was not working) We got the room and there were bugs inside. If it was rainy and heavy storms, they will NOT try to help you by providing you food to your water-villa (which was included in the rate) unless you order and pay! They charge you service fee for everything! Even a spa massage WHICH IS THE SERVICE ITSELF!! The facility is just cheap..NOT IN PRICE! But as quality.. cheap. NOT GOING TO REPEAT. Was a mistake.
9.2 Excellent
Pros: The location is wonderful, diving and snorkeling is incredible, and the diving team is very professional and friendly. The bungalows are very nice and well decorated in a rustic style, we were in a lagoon beach villa and it feels so good to have a shower or a bath looking at the palm trees and the blue sky.
Cons: The transportation to the island is tedious because you need to wait for the next domestic flight and then take a speed boat. We think it could be faster with an hydroplane or at least it would be nice to be received in a lounge to rest after the long international trip. The food is very nice but not "five stars", we would suggest to offer more seafood.
8.8 Excellent
Pros: This paradise is everything it meant to be. It’s a beautiful island everywhere you go you will just find a small slice of paradise. The beach is picture perfect, so many Manta Rays living around and the staff is very friendly.
Cons: Logistics and communications can be confusing at times but the island is too beautiful you will have a great time anyway.
5.8 Okay
Pros: Island's natural beauty and the beach. It's like a typical Maldivian island, the beauty of nature is not related to the resorts management or service offerings.
Cons: The staff is not well trained, bad customer service, misleading information about domestic travel connection flights, very poor buffet, not worthy of the package you pay. Bad service offerings, no choice of restaurants, no service on the beach, not a 5* facility.
9.6 Excellent
Pros: Beach , sea, swimming pool
Cons: Limited beer and wine, only one beer pp per day :-(

Featured amenities include a business center, dry cleaning/laundry services, and a 24-hour front desk. Guests may use a ferry terminal shuttle for a surcharge, and free self parking is available onsite.
7.1 Good
Pros: The room was small but had everything you could hope for, and a shared place outside to dry your beach towels and clothes. Short walk to the lovely bikini beach area.
Cons: We had high expectations due to the great reviews and high standard of guest houses on local Maldivian islands. That said, the property was a minor letdown. It felt quite unloved and neglected. The room was dark and humid and had a slightly dungy smell. All in all we had a pleasant stay but we got better value for money elsewhere.
9.2 Excellent
Pros: Beautiful location for a true Maldivian experience! You can breathe the local atmosphere and experience the wonderful ocean. The island has a beautiful bikini beach, you can do snorkeling and see coloured fishes also very close to the beach. The guys that organize the excursions are really nice. We went with them to a deserted island where they prepared to us a good lunch, we did snorkeling and we also had the chance to see turtles and dolphins.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: The manager and the staff were extremely friendly and always willing to help us.
8.3 Excellent
Pros: We were pick up from Reethi beach Resort in a nice speed boat for 1/3 of the price quoted by the resort. Aru had a very nive welcome tour including a fresh coconut drink :). This is the closest inn to bikini beach. A very short walk through coconut tree path to bikini beach. Kamadhoo is a great local island, sleepy & quiet. Bikini beach was great as well as snorkling access from the beach. We saw a huge school of fish eating with jaws wide open. Snorkling gear from inn was in good condition. We were told you can snorkle around the island...we never did. Local kids were friendly & cute smiling saying hello. Breakfast was basic but good at Nanaimo Restaurant. We ate all lunch and dinner there as well which was good and cheap, though waiting time for food varies...so better go before your starving. There's also 2 stores nearby for ice cream, chips, etc. Room itself is as shown on the picture. Bed was comfortable. You get 1.5l of water every day. They also offer day trips at reasonable price but we didn't go since we only stayed for 2 nights.
Cons: It's probably shown in the picture but we didn't like the bathroom set-up. Shower is very close to toilet, so toilet and floor is wet after showering. No dedicated reception time but Aru can be contacted on the phone. Cash only payment. Ladies bring hair conditioner, they seem to be hard to find even at resort or at local island store.
7.5 Good
Pros: Very confortable with a good location, just about 500 m from the beach with sunbeds and okey snorkling. Ari was super and did everything he could to make our stay as good as possible. Very confortable beds and a nice livingrom.
Cons: Bathroom was a bit small and everything get wet when taking a shower.
3.8 Mediocre
Pros: The owner was helpful when I complained but that is not enough. The location is good
Cons: The place has not good cleaning, room and bathroom. The bed is too soft, not good to have a rest. The staff not good trained. It's overpriced.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: My vacation in Ithaa Inn Kamadhoo was a balm to my soul and body – the accommodation was great, the people – host, staff and the local people were amazingly friendly, warm and kind (as a single woman I felt totally safe and protected). I needed a beautiful place to relax, peace to meditate, fill my batteries and soul with stunning images and sounds of the nature – and I got all of the above: peace and discretion (and yet, I was always able to contact someone for assistance or company, if needed), the variety of plants and animals is simply amazing… And I loved being able/allowed to walk barefoot all the time of my staying on the island :-) This island is my image of paradise on earth and I can’t wait to go there again.

10.0 Excellent
Pros: Amazing landscape. Several great snorkeling/diveing locations around the island. Great location to relax all day.
9.2 Excellent
Pros: We were looking for the true Maldivian experience - local village, local people, fishing the local way, eating local food etc. and that was exactly what we’ve got. Maalos is a small local community on a tiny island in Baa atoll, couple of hrs from Male by speedboat. People of Maalos are very friendly, the sea surrounding the island is stunning and the beaches are beautiful. There is even a small tropical forrest on the eastern side of the island. Guest house was good, with everything we needed for comfortable stay. Haneef, the owner, Aslam, his assistant and ladies from the cafe where we ate all our meals were great - welcoming, helpful and accomodating.
Cons: Nothing that would concern Dhonfulhafi as such, but a general observation. As most of places in Maldives, Maalos has an issue with plastic pollution. The village itself is clean and there is a dedicated waste management team in place, and there is a sensitization campaign going on. But you do see plastic bottles and plastic bags here and there, and even on the beach and in the sea sometimes. In a place like Baa atoll it is especially painful to see.
8.8 Excellent
Pros: We realy enjoyed our four night stay at Dhonfulhafi inn. Rooms and livingroom were confortable. We had free fresh water, food was excelent and Haneef was super. He always ensure we had a good time, met us at the airport, followed us to the ferry and booked flight tickets cheper than it should be if we booked ourselves. Good snorkling at the house reef.
Cons: Privat/ bikini beach was a bit away, but we have to accept the Maldivian culture.
9.2 Excellent
Pros: Haneef and Aslam were very helpful in all that they did. Information from Haneef prior to arriving was excellent. We were the only guests at Dhonfulhafi Inn and so had the whole place to ourselves. The Inn itself is in need of some attention and once the new build, the Beach View and Spa is complete, Haneef will concentrate on the Inn. The bed was good, the shower room was OK, the lounge was comfortable. The kitchen had a kettle, pots and pans and cutlery but no cooking facilities. We purchased coffee, milk and other bits from the local shop. Plenty of drinking water was provided. Eating is at 45 coffee on the beach front. Breakfast was very good, if you like the Maldivian breakfast, I would recommend this. We ate evening meal every other day here and the choice is very limited, it was out of season and we were the only guests, so wasn't expecting too much. The food we had though was very nice and Rasal will make it as spicy as you like.
Cons: The WiFi in the Inn is very very slow. I advise you buy a SIM card for your phone, it will be faster than the WiFi. No TV in the rooms, so if you stay here and have children, you might want to mention this to Haneef.
7.9 Good
Pros: Did like hostel a lot. Good boss, In fact amazing that on such an small island, everything is very well managed. Really can recommend this hostel

8.8 Excellent
Pros: The owner as well as guest lady (Sim Simee) were absolutely outstanding and made us feel very much at home. We had almost every day another kind of breakfast and got to try lots of local food (even fruits and nuts growing outside on the island). A highlight was that we were pampered to our anniversary with a wonderful made up bed and flowers as decoration as well as a dinner which consisted of all kinds of local yummy dishes. Since it was the end of Ramadan, we could also enjoy the celebrations in town. Great experience of local community and life in Maldives.
Cons: we were lucky that we were there in low season and had the guest house pretty much for ourselves (the nice courtyard is great for meeting other guests and eating together - it could just be a bit noisy if people stay the night outside and chat but even that is easy solved and other guests went inside the room when we kindly asked them to lower their voices)

Pros: Near the airport (5 minutes walk) which made it a perfect to stay over after our late domestic flight from Male. Room was spacious and had A/C. Bathroom clean.
Cons: Staff was not always at the reception desk so make sure you ask all questions when you see them. Also prepare to go with the 'Maldives flow' - if you ask breakfast to be ready at 10am, they will start preparing it around 10.25am after giving a nudge. As long as you're not in a rush, that is fine.
