    Great budget option”

    This is a great option for staying in Maamigili compared to the "resorts" around here. Things are clean, food is good, activities are great. I actually am not sure why anyone would pay 30 times the price to stay at some fancy villa that essentially get you the same activities at the same locations, except the experience will be much more crowded.

    Just be aware of the weather, and you will have a BLAST!!!”

    The trip I took was a once in a lifetime adventure. I was able to swim with whale sharks! That in and of itself means that I LOVED my experience in Maamagili and at the Whale Shark Inn!!! That having been said, you should be careful about the weather conditions and season in which you visit. In the 8 total days that I was in the Maldives, I probably spent a grand total of about 3 hours in the water. That is because I was there during the height of monsoon season. There was a lot of wind and rain that made traveling by boat dangerous. My plan was to take the public ferry to and from the island (for about $3-4). Actually, I had to fly to and from the island due to weather (which was about $160 each way). That having been said, due to the extreme weather, I had the ENTIRE inn to myself! Actually, there were literally only a handful of tourists on the entire island (since most had decided to cancel their trips altogether or stay on in Male hoping to wait out the storm until the next ferries were running). That meant I got a TON of personal attention not just from the staff of the Whale Shark Inn, but from ALL of the guesthouse owners on the island. By the time I left, I felt like all the shopkeepers and restaurant owners knew me as well!!! If you are not a resort person, but you want to experience what life is really like for the Maldivian people, I can't recommend this experience enough. True, there is no alcohol on the island - but I don't happen to drink anyway! Besides, the owner is happy to arrange a trip to one of the local resorts if you are really so hard up for a drink. There is no five-star dining on the island, but who wants that when the local food is soooooooooooooooo delicious?!?!? The Maldives are located near the Middle East, India, Sri Lanka, Indonesia, etc. Their food is influenced by all of these cuisines, and it is DELICIOUS and affordable!!! Dress modestly, and you will be treated with great respect and curiosity. The islan

    Nos dieron todas las facilidades. Nos pidieron la comida de un restaurante para comerla en el hotel y salimos a ver el tiburón ballena, aunque no hubo suerte. El hotel está a 5 min andando de la bikini Beach

    Ottima soluzione per potere accedere alle maldive”

    La guest house e'pulitissima, il personale impeccabile, regnano la gentilezza e la confidenza. Consiglio il Whale,Shark Inn a tutti coloro che rimangono soffocati dall'eccessiva 'falsità 'dei resort e vogliono godersi le Maldive per quello che sono realmente, con una visione anche delle problematiche di questi luoghi. Il prezzo oltretutto rende possibile un trattamento da resort in una piccola realtà. Le attività che vengono svolte sono gestite con grande professionalità.
