    Great guesthouse that feels like a resort:-)”

    Modern and comfy design, great service, great staff, interesting island

    We really enjoyed our time on Thoddoo and we were super happy about our stay at Holiday Cottage. This place has Great staff and super good service. Even before we arrived they were very helpful, always replying questions fast and accurately. During our stay the service was also great. And it was interesting to talk to the staff. The guesthouse is very nice with a modern and comfy design. We were super happy with our stay, and this was our best guesthouse during our Maldives trip, by far. Thoddoo is a bit different than most Maldivian islands. It’s a bit bigger, it’s not part of an atoll (it is an atoll in itself – the smallest atoll in Maldives), and it has a lot of agriculture. We found the island to be very interesting and the locals to be very friendly. Holiday Cottage is in the village, in the middle of the island, so it is quite a walk to the beach and the harbor, but the staff will often fetch you around.

    Thanks for the fantastic stay!”

    Hotel staff were very kind and friendly. Food was terrific. Very relaxing place.

    My husband and I really enjoyed our one week stay at the Holiday Cottage Thoddoo. People on this island have very calm energy. They are shy, but if you talk to them they are very friendly and everyone speaks English. Room was very clean and nice. It has a different atmosphere than usual guest house. I felt very comfortable. Fish dinner was amazing. We (3 couples) asked to cook something good for dinner. They cooked 4.5 KG grouper for us. I have never seen a big fish like that and it was so good! The day we fly back, they prepared comp. lunch boxes when I said we have lots of time at the airport and it is very expensive to eat at the airport. There is not much to do in this island, but my husband and I never got bored. I took a tour to see Manta Ray. It was the highlight of my trip. It was amazing.

    The best! ”

    We loved our stay here beyond words! The island surpassed expectations with a delightful, well maintained private beach area for tourists, pristine white sands and delicious turquoise waters with large coral reef for snorkeling just off the beach! The holiday cottage is intimately run by a family who really cares about their guests, taking care of your every need with big bright smiles and a warmth that makes them a favorite for many, many repeat guests. We will be back for the quiet, agricultural gem of an island which offers tourists a glimpse of real Maldivian life, delicious authentic cuisine and the guesthouse's accommodations are top notch for value. All in all, we found the laid back charm worth writing home about.

    a true maldivina experience”

    Food, quiet, staff

    We had a very relaxing time and the staff has been helpfull and very friendly.Let's analyze the facts now: 1) LOCATION: the hotel is in thoddo island which is very difficult and quite expensive to reach if you are not travelling whitin the public transportations timetable (and you can have 2/3 hours delays too!). The island has ALL you can ask for spending a wonderful holiday (reef, snorkeling, diving, local food...) 2)THE HOTEL: it's located in the village so is quite far from the beach, but you have a grocery's shop just next and the harbour is not that far too. the Building is nice and brand new with maldivina style decorations. The rooms are without windows but they are fully furnished and there's a cable tv (a real blessing on an island where there's no night entretainment) 3)THE FOOD: just one word AMAZING! The hotel has the best restaurant on the island and food is cheap and dishes are big sized (of course is maldivian food), try everything they deserve it. 4)HOTEL SERVICES: this hotel doesn't have many faciliteis but for its price is more than fine. 5)THE STAFF: The guys are friendly and nice but they lack of "proposal spirit". It's uo to you to ask (example: local food not in the menu, snorkeling material, tours and diving, bibycles and so on) but if you ask they do it and they do it perfectly so THUMBS UP for the STAFF. OVERALL is positive and if you are looking for THE REAL maldives where Maldivian people live THIS is the place i can suggest

    very helpful staff with kind hospitality”

    staff, arrangement for transport,

    the boss helped us immediately after we have booked on Agoda and arranged for our transportation to Thoddoo. Although he could not get the ticket for public ferry, but get a speed boat for us, so the cost increased much more. Actually i have to thank him for doing his best. The housekeeper hosted us so well with very kind hospitality. I booked a deluxe room but they gave me a room in another cottage resort and i didn't mind, because i stayed alone in this house without any disturbing from other residents and use the wifi individually. I will prefer this cottage to those who will visit Thoddoo, before the guests arrived, the boss did a very good job for communication, so that many problems have been solved prior to arrival.

    We stayed in the property for 5 days and it was a very nice experience: the hotel is very close to the main and most beautiful beach on Thoddoo, the food was simple but tasteful and every day new.

    Place, staff n food

    We lost our first day as we had to stay back in male city because ferry had left early morning. U don't have too many options to reach that place. One ferry at 9am n another at 9pm. But the staffs of the cottage came n met us in male itself and picked us up . After reaching thooddoo, everything was just perfect... Worth every penny.. Amazing place , people n food.. Cottage is neat. It's just few months old cottage so no problems at all.. Beach area is untouched... It's neat n beautiful.. Even the villagers are very welcoming ... Cottage staffs are always there with u to show the places.. They will take u to the beach at night, do not miss that..if u like the food spicy , u need to tell them or else they make everything very sweet.. Other than beach n food u don't have anything else to do...wifi works good n most of the channels are available ...hospital is near by (100 mts) n it's safe.

    We spent four night here and we have no bad words about hotel or staff! I have to say that the owner is a really really good person! He really cares about his customers! Hotel is the nearest from the beach! Room was big enough and very clean! We took snorkeling trip from the hotel and that was great too! And the Island itself is just amazing. So much local agriculture and not too much turism.

    We loved it and had a wonderful time! I can't think of anything that we didn't like. When I got sick, Ali even accompanied us to the doctor and gave me lots of fresh coconut juice from the trees on the property! The only thing I would mention for the sake of completeness, is that since it's the tropics and the room has an adjoining outdoor bathroom, we had some animal visitors in our room, mostly small spiders and once, a Gecko. But that's probably pretty inevitable and having an outdoor bathroom with an open sky shower more than makes up for that. We didn't mind at all, but it might be relevant for those who are squeamish with insects.
