Ye Z. Solo travelers China, November 26, 2014
A quiet corner of the beach, not bad

quiet, clean and a bird:)
It was quite a good experience. The room is small but clean, and the bathroom facilities are quite good. It is located at a corner of the beach, further away from the bikini beach but with a small island, you can walk from end to end in 15 minutes, this is not considered far away anyway. The surprise part is there is a parrot at the hotel which is so cute and dances when you sing to him/her. If you like the local breakfast, make sure you tell them one day ahead, as they need a long time to prepare and they don't tell you that when you arrive. In general it is good. But I have seen some other hotels around which have bigger rooms and cheaper rates, so it is always cheaper to book directly with the hotel than through Agoda I heard.

Great budget option

The boat captain, the food and being slightly away from everyone else
Great budget option. Right at the end - away from most of the other places which I think is a plus. Staff friendly and not at all pushy. Awesome boat captain who on second trip found us turtles, eels, sharks & plenty of fish. Excellent guide. Yes the hotel is right next to the prison and yes the island could do with a decent clean up of plastic rubbish but it's still a stunning spot and you are paying a fraction of the price of resort hotels. I also dove with shark diving school which was a highlight. Professional, varied spots each dive and the amount and variety of coral and sealife was an absolute highlight.

Relaxing holiday destination.

Good bed, spacious room, sea view.
Location was very quiet with a sea view and many fruit bats flying around! Homey feeling and nice personnel.

a new, but overpriced way to experience maldives

new and clean rooms
We had planned a break in our holidays in sri Lanka and went to the Maldives, staying over at a hotel on an inhabitated island. Although the rooms were good, they were right next to the former main prison, now in use as a rehabilitation centre, and overlooking a beach that has been largely destroyed by the 2004 tsunami. Upon arrival we found that the TV, shared refrigerator, and catamaran were broken. Only after asking about five times, did the hotel manager - who was actually a really nice guy - come up with a laptop on which we could watch a movie. Service wasn't really good either - and we missed the generosity and smile we couldn't get enough from on the neighbouring main island sri Lanka. The island maafushi itself isn't a great place to be. Fortunately we had the ability and money to go on some excursions for snorkeling, diving, night fishing and we visited a nearby island resort too. However the hotels on the island have a strange way of managing excursions for customers: in principle tourists are not allowed to join other boats from 'competing' hotels for excursions. This monopoly means that if you're traveling as a couple you pay far more than necessary for excursions. We decided not to obey this 'rule' and managed to join up with some really great tourists we met on the island - which was also a lot more fun! All in all we made the most of our stay, but we had to be quite creative at times.
Sightseeing/Attractions Tip: Go to: The sandbank Night fishing Bayidhu resort Dive centre closest to the harbour

Nice service and air condition is very good
Very nice people and service but the hotel is not near the beach,no activity to do in this hotel.
