      Perfect l0cation”
      Only 3 mins walk to the bikini beach. Staffs were really nice. Once I arrived by public ferry, Manu (staff) escorted us to the hotel and explain the detail. Abdul (Hotel manager) provided all needed information and offered the tour package. He also looked for the reasonable price of speedboat for us on the way back. Chef, he made our meal with his gentle. Room : no blanket, just only the thin bed sheet cover, I think it is not comfortable when you stay in room with AC. Bathroom : the shower was not working well (maybe only in my room) , turn left = strong water pressure but TOO HOT, turn right = water pressure was drop but the temperature was ok.

      Something wrong n fishy with hotel booking”
      When we arrive at Dhiffushi Island,the hotel staff waiting at jetty and inform us that their hotel fully booked and need to relocate us to the new hotel as replacement.They send to new hotel and the location of the hotel very suck. We dont agree with relocate and after fight for our right and warning them to call agoda and suddenly they said the hotel have available room. The hotel manager so impolite and sour face

      Best stay in Maldives”
      My friend and I were met by Hussein, one of the hotel's employees, at the port when we arrived. He was kind enough to lead the way and offer to carry our bags. The hotel was a 5-minute walk away from the port so it was not much of a problem. He was gave us a brief intro to the island of Dhiffushi on the way. And when we arrived, he instantly offered us some drinks. I made a mistake in our booking so we settled it first (without any hassles). Our room was all made up and clean when we arrived. The only thing that may concern other guests would be the water in the island. Though it has gone through filtration and all, it has a funny smell, which may bother some. But other than that, the hotel's amenities were great. They offer some tour packages that we availed. Hussein was even the one who personally accompanied us throughout our whole day island trip. He packed us some lunch and snacks, drinks and guided us during our snorkeling. The other staff were also kind and generous. Would totally book again in this hotel the next time! ;)

      The best guesthouse in Maldives!”
      The beach is just a minute walk from the guesthouse. They have the best food and chef. What makes the guesthouse best is that all people try to make your stay as comfortable as possible. Just tell them you need, they will find a way to provide what you need. All the info you need, all are willing to help or give a hand. The guesthouse has the best Manager I've met. He is so kind, understanding and very sweet. He gave me a perfume before I went home just because he heard I was asking where I can buy the local perfume. I will never forget the kindness and hospitality of the people from this guesthouse. I surely would want to comeback and recommend. -Amer-

      Sadly mixed feelings Do not accept alternative Accomodation under any circumstances”
      Came off ferry to be told the hotel was full (despite us booking many months in advance) We were offered accomodation accross the road. Room was ok so we accepted and we accepted compensation of all meals free of charge. On closer inspection the bathroom was disgusting. That night we asked for it to have a thorough clean the next morning. Came back from beach and were told that the room was ready. Nothing was done at all. Later that night a horrible smell started and by the next day it was utterly revolting. This got worse and worse. Their is an issue with the water and pipes in the alternative accomodation which cannot be fixed. Do not accept these rooms even for free of charge. Main building is very pretty and the staff and food are brilliant. Beach is far too small for the many new holiday accomodation that is being built at this end of the island and sadly the government is allowing the buildings to have too many levels.

      3 day get away from India”
      For someone who loves the ocean, clean and cool temperature it was perfect. Swam the first day, snorkeled the second day and went scuba driving the third day. Fantastic! To snorkel I went on a jet ski and to scuba dive I went out on a speed boat. Just the boat rides were great fun. For me, the color of the ocean, aqua/turquoise was as beautiful a sight as I have ever seen.

      Consistently Overbooking Rooms (Terrible Manager)”
      When we arrived at the dock we realized that there was a problem with the room. Seven people arrived with only two rooms available. Only 3 guests stayed at White Sands. The other four were placed at other hotels. Based on our experience, you probably will not be staying at this property even if you have a confirmed reservation. Each day we were there, we met another traveller who had a reservation and was moved to another property. In escence, you are offered a great looking property with very good reviews and moved to another property upon arrival. This practice is called "Bait & Switch". If they offer a room at Air Dhiffushi you should probably hold out for a sea view room at Rashu Hiyaa. The rest of the staff was great, the common area was perfect for meeting other guests.

      The place to stay in dhiffushi!”
      If you want a real Maldivian experience, then you should definitely go there! This is the most authentic village in Maldives. People on this island are so kind, especially the staff from white sand beach hotel. There are 3 ways to arrive to Dhiffushi island: Public ferry (2 US dollars), takes about 3 hours, departure from Male Public speed boat (25 US dollars), takes around 45 minutes, departure from Male Private spread boat from the hotel, don't remember the price, this one also takes about 45 min, guys will meet you in the airport, this ride is really fun! In order to get to Male, take the public ferry from the airport to Male and switch to public speed boat or the public ferry. Once you'll arrive to the island, the stuff will be waiting for you on the beach, even if it's really rainy or storming. They helped us with our luggage. In the hotel, we were served cocktails ( non alcoholic of course) and met all the staff, such a kind people. Our bed was decorated with honey moon decorations, all made from the flowers that grow in village, it was very romantic! They have a very special design in this hotel, all made of wood, we really loved it! The staff is so helpful: just ask, they will help you with any question or requirement. Food: there are some very small supermarkets on the island and 3 coffee shops, I would recommend to order lunch or dinner in the hotel or go to the Faruma restaurant. Oh, don't forget to ask to make your reservation not so spicy, locals love vey very spicy food! White sand beach hotel has really yummy breakfast, I really loved the Maldivian breakfast: maashuni, the chef in the hotel makes it really good, tried in other places, did not like. One day we were walking on the villages and bought a fresh fish from some local guy, the chef grilled the hole fish for us with some vegetables aside, it was a real delicious. You may also join the fishing activities and ask to grill the fish in the hotel, really recommend to do that. Ah, almost fo

      Smelly water”
      Hotel design, relatively new
      Everything was OK except for the smell of water and exhaust holes in the toilet, and the pillow. They provide two pillows for each guest, but both pillows are exactly the same, and each is too high for all our family members. May be OK for large size European, but definitely too high for Asian. When I brought this up to Manager, the answer is "This is the first time we have this kind of complain". In the end we slept 4 nights through using the beach tower folded as pillow. The water is complete letdown. The manager brought me to their neighbour trying to prove that the water is equally stink for the entire island, only to convince himself that it is a problem isolated only to White Sand. Give many reasons why water stink, why toilet stink. Not showing efforts to fix it, instead trying to preemptively justify smelly water and toilet as the lack of sewage system on the entire island.
