Simple but does the job
They try hard to provide all in tip top shape, but can work on the fly situation. Flame devices do not rid the area of them inside and outside eating areas. Many establishments on island have this problem. The internet at times was slow or logged out often, but went to near by 4 star hotel and wifi there fine so I can tell it is not an island problem. Staff tries to help with issues when they arrise.

Great hotel - Great staffs
This guest house is simply amazing. The location is good, near the beach. Room is clean with big bed. Before decided to book the full board room, we were a bit worried about their food and its taste. We also didn't want to have the same food for every day. But then we quickly recognized that we should not be afraid of it too much. Their food was simply so nice. We really loved and enjoyed it. They also changed the menu for every meal. Especially the staffs were very friendly. They always gave us their hands of help with a big smile.

Pleasant like a homestay ..
Friendly members, clean rooms and amazing experiences
From the moment, we took the speedboat transfer to the reception at the Guesthouse, we are greeted by warm and friendly members of the guesthouse. The guesthouse is about 5mins walk from the dock and there are small provision shops about 8 – 10mins walk away. They have clean and functional facilities in the room (eg, heater, air-conditioned, small fridge). The lobby has a pool table and breakfast is served there too. There is a notice board that shows the excursions that they provide and prices are negotiable (if you travel as a group). For those fishing fanatics, the owner can also help to arrange fishing trips at reasonable prices. There is a must go and that’s to the private island called Vaagali; Its tranquil and beautiful. Overall, the entire stay was relaxed and enjoyable.

The toilet smells!
I can't find three. Price maybe.
This hotel is at the other end of the island. 7-8 minutes walk from the popular beach area. Distance is not a problem. But the toilet smells terrible and spoiled our time there. The owners should find a soluition to thhat otherwise I won't recommend this hotel to anybody.

reasonabley comfortable
reasonable price, friendly staff, clean aircon room
only stayed one night as had to fly out next day. Good value for money, room was clean, but water in bathroom smelled as they use ground water there I think. Staff were friendly and the owner was very friendly and on site. Its family run.

What you pay is what you get.
Clean rooms, good working air-condition, friendly atmosphere
Me and my friends spent 6 nights in Summer Villa Guest House. It was one of the cheapest accomodation options on the Maafushi Island. We were welcomed by the staff at the ferry dock and they took our luggages. Summer Villa is about 5 minutes by walk from the dock (about 10 minutes of slowly walk from the beach), and has prison, and few hotels in construction as its surroundings. On the ground floor there is a lobby with pool table, free wi-fi, comfortable sofas and tables. It is also a place where the buffet breakfast and dinner are served. We ate dinner only once (it cost 10$) because it was not very good (and we found out that it is expensive, because you can find better buffet for 6$). Breakfast were much better, every day quite the same: tost bread, butter, jam, sausages, eggs, great paste made of fresh coconut and tuna, some nudles, corn flakes, tea, coffe, juice, milk. In patio you can make a coffee or a tea all the time for free. Summer Villa has expensive excursions, but you can bargain if you have a group of people (but it is also not a problem to buy excursions somewhere else). We appreciate honesty of the Manager, who did not want to take us for dolphin cruise, because it was unlikely to see them (because of the weather). Our rooms were on the second floor, and it was nice, because we saw rooms on the ground floor and they have no window (technically they have windows but facing the corridor to the lobby). As conclusion I can say that it was very nice time I spent in Summer Villa Guest House, but it is possible to find something better in simillar price.
