      Nice clean hotel for an affordable price.”

      The hotel is clean, rooms are good and spacious, breakfast is nice. the dinner buffet is $10 and really worth compared to others hotels in Maafushi. Mr. Fox arrange us half day snorkeling tour which is really awesome. The guide who took us for snorkeling is very helpful. He deserves our full respect. However the hotel have mentioned TV, room coffee, free fruit basket and even a complimentary gift. but sadly none of these were provided although they have mentioned in our room type on Agoda. we even request for our fruit baskets but none was given to us. However, when we inquire on coffee packets in room, it was served on dining table for free. Please don't advertise false complementary if the hotel is not providing them. other than that good decent hotel for your money in Maafushi

      Pretty upscale for cheap price”

      We stayed here for 2 nights as our last stop in the Maldives. It is definitely more of a hotel than a guest house. We were here during Ramadan which is also during the low season, so we were the only guests and it was very, very quiet around the hotel. The staff was great nonetheless. We recommend always getting the local breakfast as it seems to be more value for your money. It was standard here compared to the other places we stayed. They let us use the two bikes which was very helpful as this hotel is located at the opposite end of the island from the bikini beach and most restaurants. Overall we really enjoyed our stay and would come again.

I conected two beds in large room , and 4 people could sleep. I am grateful for taking out breakfast and making it early morning.The staff worked hard for cleaning the room and lobby every day. You can stay with peace of mind even with small children.This building is new and beautiful. It is about 8 minutes on foot to Bikini Beach, so you can save your stay and join various excursions.

They let us use their phone even for an international call and tried their hardest to get us on a trip that we decided last minute that was unfortunately cancelled to to the weather conditions.

      Not trustworthy. Took the money for the local tour package but did not deliver.”

      It is good basic budget hotel with nice staff but all the positive feeling is been washed out with the way we have been treated at the end. We had agreed upon a package related to tours with the hotel mgr (fox) and he coordinated the tours well but regarding the important part - drone photos (that were part of package), we were told that they will email us in 2-3 days. Its been more than 45 days now and even after repeated follow-ups over the phone, he did not care to give our tour photos/videos that was agreed as part of the package. I am really sad to write my first negative review but couldn't help it out but alert future travellers to be mindful about it.

      It disappointed in many levels and few good points.”

      Good points: -Spacious rooms and nice bathroom. -They let me early check early and check out late. Bad points: -No water when I arrived. -No shampoos and soap. -Staff is not empowered to be customer oriented. It's easy to be nice to your guest, but its hard to be an effective service provider. -I woke up early to watch the sunrise but the door is locked and no one was in the reception area. -I stopped believing what d Manager says and had to be assertive because of the following. a. Manager promised me to help with the tours cause they also organize tours but when I got there. there is no real concern for your enjoyment, they would say something like, "Yes, I will look into it" but no feedback until you follow it up. b. My friend had to go back 4x just to get photos. c. So one of the staff promised me to send my tour photos and naturally. Im still waiting for them. d. I had to ask the staff 5x to reserve me a ferry back and when i get there, they said no reservation fr em.

      Big room, transparent glass door, good food provided”

      Room is spacious and clean enough ( just a few stain on carpet etc). The breakfast and dinner provided was good, although not much variety but it was sufficient and most importantly, yummy. The crew at the kitchen is very friendly. The complaint I have for the room is the lack of privacy as the doors and wall were glass door and our room was right smack at the kitchen and dining area. The glass was transparent (there is curtain) and the noise in the morning and night time was not comfortable for us. Bathroom door is also glass and cannot be lock. Bikini beach is 10 minutes slow walk away.
