Good location, nice breakfast”
Pros: good location, nice Maldivian breakfast, good tours, nice hot shower, free water and tea. Cons: staff were not at reception 24/7 to assist, wifi and tv were not functioning during most of our visit, bad rates at this hotel when paying in local currency rather than US dollars (worse than bank rates).

Wonderful Holidat”
Location services and value
Loved my stay at Banana as the family owned and operated vacation guest house exceeded all my expectations. Activities in which one of the family brothers orchestrated were great and well planned. I would stay here again.

Sets a high standard for budget travel ”
high standards, EXCELLENT Maldivian Mashuni and Rothi breakfast, comfortable rooms with aquality bed and extra soft pillows
We were very pleased with the quality and value of this hotel. Their standard of service is much higher than most budget guest houses we've visited and the quality of the stay for the price is very, very good. The management is especially kind and actively involved in promoting tourism on Rasdhoo, including helping keep the island clean. Their Mashuni and Roshi Maldivian breakfast is one of the most delicious foods I have eaten - we haven't found better on other islands. Their buffet dinners are also large and very tasty. The rooms are exceptionally clean, comfortable and quiet and the restaurant is as well. They provided a free Boduberu show (we've seen other islands advertise these for $400) that was undoubtedly a highlight of our trip. When our flight arrived late and we missed the ferry Adam quickly organized a speed boat to get us to the island the same day. Tip: phone is easier than email for communication Rasdhoo is a great little island with a bit more tourism than other inhabited islands in Northern Ari Atoll. There are three great restaurants, numerous souvenir shops (although lots of the goods are not produced in the Maldives which is a shame because they have great artisans and handicrafts), and three dive shops tucked between whimsical coral houses. The beach is gorgeous, West facing and cleaned regularly. There's okay snorkeling a short swim out and good swimming at high tide. Madivaru Island (picnic island) and a gorgeous sand bar with excellent swimming and snorkeling is only a 5-10 min boat ride away although the price per person per trip ($30-35) seems a bit expensive (check with the dive shops for possible cheaper rates). The diving around Rasdhoo Atoll was very impressive with lots of sharks, Rays and turtles. However, the friendly, exceptionally laid-back Malvians were our favorite part. We loved it. Highly recommended

Perfekt”
Toller Service, gute Lage ganz nah am Bikinistrand, sehr saubere und Zimmer mit Klimaanlage und Kühlschrank, grmütlicher Innenhof
Die Unterkunft lässt keine Wünsche offen! Sie ist sehr gut gelegen, nur ca. eine Minute zum Bikinistrand, der wirklich schön ist und Schattenplätze hat (Mückenspray nicht vergessen). Die Zimmer sind groß und sehr sauber, es gibt eine Klimaanlage und eine Minibar. Es gibt einen gemütlichen Innenhof, in dem das Frühstück serviert wird. Das maledivische Frühstück auf jeden Fall probieren. Am großartigsten war aber der Service. Alle Mitarbeiter waren so freundlich und hilfsbereit, ohne aufdringlich zu sein. Es ist eine sehr, sehr entspannte Atmosphäre, dabei aber perfekt organisiert. Auf jeden Fall zu empfehlen!

Hervorragendes Preis-Leistungsverhältnis”
Ausstattung, Ambiente, Mitarbeiterfreundlichkeit
Auf unserem Rucksacktrip durch die Malediven haben wir 4 Nächte im Banana Residence verbracht. Von allen Unterkünften hatte dieses das beste Preis-Leistungsverhältnis. Das Gasthaus ist recht neu und sehr geschmackvoll eingerichtet. Das Zimmer hatte gutes Hotelniveau und verfügte über beste Ausstattung. Lediglich beim Bad gibt es kleine Abzüge, da es (noch) keine Abluft gab und nach dem Duschen eine Weile dauerte, bis die Feuchtigkeit abgezogen war. Ansonsten ist alles vorhanden, was man benötigt, u.a. Kühlschrank und Safe. Im gemütlichen Innenhof wurde das Frühstück serviert, bei Bedarf kann auch Mittag- und Abendessen zusätzlich bestellt werden. Die Mitarbeiter sind allesamt sehr freundlich und hilfsbereit. Es können über das Gasthaus verschiedene Aktivitäten gebucht werden. Auch die Reservierung der Rückfahrt nach Male haben die Mitarbeiter für uns vorgenommen. Alles in allem, sehr empfehlenswert!!
