                  Clean. Great staff. Value for money.”

                  Staff- very hospitable. On our first day, we bought a fish from the sidewalk of Maafuahi and the staff was so kind to grill it for us. They are very informative and very kind. They always ask you of your needs. Location- because Maafushi is so small, you can actually just walk around everywhere, however, the Lodge’s location is a bit far from the ‘center’. Its i think probably the last lodge on the array of hostels in Maafushi and is near to their prison. Rooms- we stayed their for 5 days, we got upgraded to their newly rebovated rooms which are very spacious and beautiful. There was a fish spa at our doorstep😊 Breakfast- this is just me complaining because everyday for 5 days, they have the same breakfast buffet😭 so i guess they have to improve in this area. Overall, the place is great!😍

                  Close to good dive shops with great dive sites; can enjoy a small public island; friendly and helpful staff

                  Maafushi is very small island and the hotel is at 5 minutes walk from the ferry point. Although the hotel is a bit "far" from the busiest part of the island and the tourist beach at the end of the island, it offer a quite atmosphere to enjoy the peaceful island. There is not many eating point on this small island but the hotel has small restaurant that offer reasonably good food at fair price.

                  My stay at the guest house is GREAT! Way beyond my expectations. At first, I thought that it was just any other guest house, but the moment I stepped in to the island of Maafushi I was greeted by Ali who is very good, kind, and accommodating. In terms of cost: perfect; cleanliness: perfect, and most importantly the experience. Personalised experience makes it perfect couldn't ask for more. Well done to Akram and Ali. Many thanks.

                  Our 5-nights stay in Holiday Lodge Maldives was enjoyable. It is a small hotel, but very cozy. Guests get to know each other easily. Food is good with much variety. Prices are reasonable. They also organize sea trips to go fishing, snorkeling & others. In a night fishing tour we went, we caught 10 table-sizes fishes, and they BBQ for us for our dinner. Their staff is very friendly and will try their best in accommodating our requests. Especially Mr Ali, Mohammed & their chef Elyal. I will definitely stay there again, when I visit Maldives the next time.

                  Food, Personalized Service, & Fun Activities

                  Staying at the Holiday Lodge was great and the staff, (most notably Ali), were absolutely superb. I can't remember the last time I stayed at a more budget minded hotel but yet received such personalized service! The menu at this hotel was extremely varied with lots of international choices and the daily buffet breakfast is quite good. On Tuesday nights, there is a special buffet offering local foods plus a local band performance featuring groovy beats and everyone gets to jump in and dance along and is lots of fun. The swimming beaches are within walking distance (only about ten minutes), or one can take a bike to get there faster. Lastly, there are a number of activities that one can do and can be quickly organized right from the hotel (although bear in mind that going solo on some of the excursions will cost you a tad bit more). Either way, a great experience, excellent staff, and would certainly return again.

                  Big experience to stay on local island.”

                  friendly staff, clean room

                  The Holiday Lodge Maldives is quite nice little hotel. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The only disappointment is the Mafushi island. Do not expect Maldives paradise here! It is a local island with few hotels, there is only one hotel beach, another public beach is not nice and the last possible beach is full of rubbish. Actually the whole island is so messy and uncleared. There is nothing to do - small island with may be 2 restaurants, 1 diving center, few shops and messy beaches. If you want to enjoy beautiful beaches you have to visit some other island and that is possible if you buy a trip from the hotel. The only problem is that the price for the transport is quite high and you have to pay also the entrance fee. Some other guests found out that you can buy the boat transport from the office close to the public beach and it was much much cheaper. We paid just 36 USD (5 people) for the return boat trip to some other island (I forgot the name) but the hotel charged 30 USD per person! Not sure if this is good business strategy?!

                  The excellent staff, The excellent and cheap activities, The local lives of the friendliest Maldivians

                  Because I had just booked this hotel in the afternoon before I travelled in the evening on the same day and when my husband and I arrived at Maldives, we didn't know that the staff of the hotel sent a man to take us at the airport but we wanted to go there by ourselves by the Maafushi Island ferry because it's very easy but we had to wait until 15.00 pm ( one trip per a day ) for the ticket is very cheap : 2 $ (US) = 30 local money. But we went with him by a speed boat which shared with the others : 35 $ (US) per a person. It's more expensive but it's ok, we had more time and it's very fast. Everything was very excellent, the staff told us that our room had a problem that he tried to solve but it didn't work. He sent us to the nearest and newer hotel, its name is Ocean Vista Hotel near the sea, just opened for a month, everything was very excellent for us, there are only 5 rooms and we could have breakfast and bought buffet dinner, many sea activities at Holiday Lodge (Very excellent). They told us to drink all mini bar in the fridge and he would pay for us. But we drank only a can of soft drink and they let us to ride the bicycles without charges.

                  My friends couldn't believe the Maldives holiday didn't break my bank. I have Holiday Lodge Maldives at Maafushi to thank for. Not only accommodation is of a good quality despite paying little, we had our dinner and 3 activities: a snorkelling trip, a fishing trip and a full day at a private resort. Staff were friendly. Special thanks to the snorkelling leader Mohammed and crew who took care of my young son. He was afraid of doing the activity at first. With you guys' encouragement he attempted snorkelling in the second and third spot and loved every second of it.

We booked with the hotel for a day snorkeling. The guide were very helpful and accommodating. In deed very personalized. We were also surprise of the mid day snacks they have provided after the day tour. But what was more surprising to us was the airport transfer. Practically we have chartered the trip to Male. I can not believe that for 20USD reqch Male.

                  The lodge is highly recommended. Being close to the dock & waterfront, we always had that clear view of the sea every morning. Each room comes with almost complete amenities. The place is very well kept even up to their dining hall. The staff are great & very accommodating. Even their guys who guides us out in the open sea, they didn't fail to assist us on our needs. They have this in-house package excursion & each is worth the bucks.

                  Friendly Staff, Comfortable Bed, Snorkeling Trip

                  Our stay at the Holiday Lodge was wonderful! The room was very clean and bed was big and comfortable. Food was good as well. The staff is very friendly and helpful. We got to watch the movie of our choice while having dinner in the seating area which was very nice. They have many movies downloaded and will provide you with them if you have your own USB so you can watch then in your room. The Lodge is a short walk from the beach which was actually very nice. There is a grocery store across the lodge so its convenient to grab snacks when needed. If you are interested in snorkeling I HIGHLY suggest planning your trip with the staff at holiday lodge. This was the first time my husband and I went snorkeling and had such an amazing experience because of Nawaz, Hussain and another young man that worked there (we forgot the name). They took very good care of us and provided us with great photos and videos. Some of the companies that take people snorkeling have groups of 12 to even 20 people which doesnt leave much one on one time for you especially if its your first time. We are so happy we choose to take our trip with Nawaz and Hussain because this type of one on one guidance could not be given anywhere else. Thank you guys for making our stay with you guys so memorable! :)

                  Staff- very hospitable. On our first day, we bought a fish from the sidewalk of Maafuahi and the staff was so kind to grill it for us. They are very informative and very kind. They always ask you of your needs. Location- because Maafushi is so small, you can actually just walk around everywhere, however, the Lodge’s location is a bit far from the ‘center’. Its i think probably the last lodge on the array of hostels in Maafushi and is near to their prison. Rooms- we stayed their for 5 days, we got upgraded to their newly rebovated rooms which are very spacious and beautiful. There was a fish spa at our doorstep😊 Breakfast- this is just me complaining because everyday for 5 days, they have the same breakfast buffet😭 so i guess they have to improve in this area. Overall, the place is great!😍

                  Maafushi is very small island and the hotel is at 5 minutes walk from the ferry point. Although the hotel is a bit "far" from the busiest part of the island and the tourist beach at the end of the island, it offer a quite atmosphere to enjoy the peaceful island. There is not many eating point on this small island but the hotel has small restaurant that offer reasonably good food at fair price.

Prices are reasonable. They also organize sea trips to go fishing, snorkeling & others. In a night fishing tour we went, we caught 10 table-sizes fishes, and they BBQ for us for our dinner. Their staff is very friendly and will try their best in accommodating our requests. Especially Mr Ali, Mohammed & their chef Elyal. I will definitely stay there again, when I visit Maldives the next time.

                  Staying at the Holiday Lodge was great and the staff, (most notably Ali), were absolutely superb. I can't remember the last time I stayed at a more budget minded hotel but yet received such personalized service! The menu at this hotel was extremely varied with lots of international choices and the daily buffet breakfast is quite good. On Tuesday nights, there is a special buffet offering local foods plus a local band performance featuring groovy beats and everyone gets to jump in and dance along and is lots of fun. The swimming beaches are within walking distance (only about ten minutes), or one can take a bike to get there faster. Lastly, there are a number of activities that one can do and can be quickly organized right from the hotel (although bear in mind that going solo on some of the excursions will cost you a tad bit more). Either way, a great experience, excellent staff, and would certainly return again.

                  friendly staff, clean room

                  The Holiday Lodge Maldives is quite nice little hotel. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The only disappointment is the Mafushi island. Do not expect Maldives paradise here! It is a local island with few hotels, there is only one hotel beach, another public beach is not nice and the last possible beach is full of rubbish. Actually the whole island is so messy and uncleared. There is nothing to do - small island with may be 2 restaurants, 1 diving center, few shops and messy beaches. If you want to enjoy beautiful beaches you have to visit some other island and that is possible if you buy a trip from the hotel. The only problem is that the price for the transport is quite high and you have to pay also the entrance fee. Some other guests found out that you can buy the boat transport from the office close to the public beach and it was much much cheaper. We paid just 36 USD (5 people) for the return boat trip to some other island (I forgot the name) but the hotel charged 30 USD per person! Not sure if this is good business strategy?!

                  Because I had just booked this hotel in the afternoon before I travelled in the evening on the same day and when my husband and I arrived at Maldives, we didn't know that the staff of the hotel sent a man to take us at the airport but we wanted to go there by ourselves by the Maafushi Island ferry because it's very easy but we had to wait until 15.00 pm ( one trip per a day ) for the ticket is very cheap : 2 $ (US) = 30 local money. But we went with him by a speed boat which shared with the others : 35 $ (US) per a person. It's more expensive but it's ok, we had more time and it's very fast. Everything was very excellent, the staff told us that our room had a problem that he tried to solve but it didn't work. He sent us to the nearest and newer hotel, its name is Ocean Vista Hotel near the sea, just opened for a month, everything was very excellent for us, there are only 5 rooms and we could have breakfast and bought buffet dinner, many sea activities at Holiday Lodge (Very excellent). They told us to drink all mini bar in the fridge and he would pay for us. But we drank only a can of soft drink and they let us to ride the bicycles without charges.

                  Manager was hands-on, service was exceptional

                  we arrived on valentines day late afternoon. we did not have time to check anything yet as we left our luggage and went for dinner. while having buffet dinner at the hotel, the manager asked us for the keys because they have a problem with the shower. once we came back, the bed was full or petals, and there were lovely roses and the towels were folded with a heart shape. it was a romantic and lovely surprise for me and my fiancee..

                  Affordable Maldives Travel with wonderful activities”

                  My friends couldn't believe the Maldives holiday didn't break my bank. I have Holiday Lodge Maldives at Maafushi to thank for. Not only accommodation is of a good quality despite paying little, we had our dinner and 3 activities: a snorkelling trip, a fishing trip and a full day at a private resort. Staff were friendly. Special thanks to the snorkelling leader Mohammed and crew who took care of my young son. He was afraid of doing the activity at first. With you guys' encouragement he attempted snorkelling in the second and third spot and loved every second of it.

                  Free room upgrade, the room was great, quite hotel down the end of the island, just make sure you get all the information needed from the staff as they are not around often, but when they are they are very happy to help :) and the Maldivian girl at the counter is quite pretty 😂🤣

                  Since its very cheap everything was up to par. All staff is very kind and helpful. if u expected a beautiful beach view this is not the place. But if u want to save ur budget and spend to more activities this is the place. Food is good and u will have a good privacy here. Not crowded. Thanks to Ali and his all staff for their treats.

                  The service was personalized. We very lucky to have a room facing the ocean. The food is good though only few choices. The coffee with milk was really good. We booked with the hotel for a day snorkeling. The guide were very helpful and accommodating. In deed very personalized. We were also surprise of the mid day snacks they have provided after the day tour. But what was more surprising to us was the airport transfer. Practically we have chartered the trip to Male. I can not believe that for 20USD reqch Male.

                  The lodge is highly recommended. Being close to the dock & waterfront, we always had that clear view of the sea every morning. Each room comes with almost complete amenities. The place is very well kept even up to their dining hall. The staff are great & very accommodating. Even their guys who guides us out in the open sea, they didn't fail to assist us on our needs. They have this in-house package excursion & each is worth the bucks.

                  Located down the "other" end of the island (almost at the prison), holiday lodge was a nice spot for our stay on Maafushi, being about a 10-15 min walk to the bikini beach. Friendly staff were always helpful in booking tours, and ensuring out stay went great.

                  The location is perfect, the room quite spacious and cleanliness was excellent. But there was one staff that kinda rude (I forgot his name). He was upset when we're late for breakfast and minutes after that the other guest arrived for breakfast and he said nothing.

                  Friendly Staff, Comfortable Bed, Snorkeling Trip

                  Our stay at the Holiday Lodge was wonderful! The room was very clean and bed was big and comfortable. Food was good as well. The staff is very friendly and helpful. We got to watch the movie of our choice while having dinner in the seating area which was very nice. They have many movies downloaded and will provide you with them if you have your own USB so you can watch then in your room. The Lodge is a short walk from the beach which was actually very nice. There is a grocery store across the lodge so its convenient to grab snacks when needed. If you are interested in snorkeling I HIGHLY suggest planning your trip with the staff at holiday lodge. This was the first time my husband and I went snorkeling and had such an amazing experience because of Nawaz, Hussain and another young man that worked there (we forgot the name). They took very good care of us and provided us with great photos and videos. Some of the companies that take people snorkeling have groups of 12 to even 20 people which doesnt leave much one on one time for you especially if its your first time. We are so happy we choose to take our trip with Nawaz and Hussain because this type of one on one guidance could not be given anywhere else. Thank you guys for making our stay with you guys so memorable! :)
