Clean and big room
Nice decorated room ,near jetty ,like home stay
The staff and manager Hassain were always extremely helpful and polite. It had a great location opposite the ferry disembarkation area and with spectacular sunsets. Our room was large and a comfortable bed . The hotel provided us with beach towels and snorkelling equipment free of charge. We paid US $15 for a Maldivian buffet dinner outside the guest house including an energetic cultural dance and drumming expo. The food was simple, the staff know tat my son and her girl friend came here to take some photo for their wedding .they make one cake with their name on it and decorate their bed with flower. We would be very happy to stay there Report this review

Friendly staff
Near jetty ,nice room
I booked 7rooms in this dhonvelli view as I know they only have 6 room .when we reached maafushi island ,the staff already wait at the jetty using the cart to carry our luggage .3 mins walk from the jetty.The guest house welcome us with the drink and towel.The manager told us to separate into 2 guest house so we take 4 rooms in main resort and 3 rooms in new 2 storey apartment with nice sea look like our house tat no reception although it took 10 mins walk from the main building .every day we walk to the main building to have our breakfast ,bread ,egg ,pancake with fish floss ,sausage ,coffee ,tea ,juice and mineral water.

Great hotel, best staff!
great staff, clean room, good activities
Very clean and comfortable room. Hotel is close to the beach. Staff there are the most friendly and helpful I've ever seen, they help us to arrange all our activities well and slove all of our problems! The only thing that can be improved is the wifi.

location, food
it is just besides the jetty, very convenient. the food is delicious. the manager is willing to help us. just one thing, we booked a resort trip in another hotel, they called dhonveli to ask for our passport number as the resort needed, but the staff said there are no chinese staying here, so we missed this trip. anyway, thank you so much, and i may take my parents to stay dhonveli again.

Maldives main food is tuna, you can eat tuna all day. The boss also hold traditional music party for us. A lot of travelers arrive and dance with us, so fun.
