        It make sense to get the package that includes only meals without including beverages if you do not plant to drink a lot of alcoholic drinks. Food should definitely be included during the booking of the hotel package. The buffets were pretty good with a good selection of different types of cuisine and the desert was really good for every meal. If you plan to snorkel around this hotel, make sure you snorkel a bit out towards the flags as the corals are better looking with more fishes. Don't expect too much if you are just snorkeling around the hotel vicinity. You might need to book a tour package to see the whale sharks, manta rays, and turtles. Night snorkeling has been a great experience for me. Seeing the plankton light up in the dark, jelly fish and other nocturnal fishes were an amazing experience for me! The hotel also offer rental of snorkeling gear as well.

        Our water villa was very big and lovely. The hotel had the option of turning into all inclusive. It's paradise on the island, location was good not too far via sea plane and staff were very helpful and friendly. The room service staff did not refill all the room amenities we had to ask a couple of time for shower caps, shampoo etc. all in all a luxurious stay.

        It was brilliant stay in Maafushivaru. The staffs are friendly and helpful. Free flow of drinks if you upgrade to All Inclusive (which i highly recommend). the view is magnificent. I can see friendly shark and fishes from my room (the water villa). Overall i would say it was a great experience.

        Cleanliness, buffet, service

        Our welcome began right from Maafushivaru's lounge at Male airport (sea plane terminal). Both their beach villas and water villas were super clean and had in-room complimentary wi-fi. They gave us their best water villa (No. 222) - the one at the extreme tip. The rooms didn’t have a toothbrush kit, which you will need to buy from their store. It got a bit noisy and shaky in the water villa for about an hour due to a night storm, however they informed us that it is safe and is the normal experience in a water villa during strong winds and rain. Food was great. We opted for full board which included buffet breakfast, lunch and dinner (ie. water and beverages being charged separately except for tea/coffee/juices at breakfast). The buffets had plenty of variety and there was also a chef taking custom orders for pasta/chinese noodles etc. They even gave us a complimentary lunch after checking out on our last day. Snorkeling was great and equipment is free of charge if you use it for a short while. The bar is very close to the infinity pool and came in very handy. Service staff - at the reception, the waiters, the chef and the IT staff for fixing wifi at night - all were very helpful and knowledgeable.

        The staff is very nice and communication skill is good. We have encountered the problem on accessing wifi but it is resolved by staff promptly. The scene of the resort is very good. The bad thing is that we cannot early check in but I have requested early check in before and they confirmed me. So, we waste time on waiting the seaplane to arrive there. And the facilities are little bit old.
