Simple but does the job”
They try hard to provide all in tip top shape, but can work on the fly situation. Flame devices do not rid the area of them inside and outside eating areas. Many establishments on island have this problem. The internet at times was slow or logged out often, but went to near by 4 star hotel and wifi there fine so I can tell it is not an island problem. Staff tries to help with issues when they arrise.

Great hotel - Great staffs”
This guest house is simply amazing. The location is good, near the beach. Room is clean with big bed. Before decided to book the full board room, we were a bit worried about their food and its taste. We also didn't want to have the same food for every day. But then we quickly recognized that we should not be afraid of it too much. Their food was simply so nice. We really loved and enjoyed it. They also changed the menu for every meal. Especially the staffs were very friendly. They always gave us their hands of help with a big smile.

Pleasant like a homestay .. ”
Friendly members, clean rooms and amazing experiences
From the moment, we took the speedboat transfer to the reception at the Guesthouse, we are greeted by warm and friendly members of the guesthouse. The guesthouse is about 5mins walk from the dock and there are small provision shops about 8 – 10mins walk away. They have clean and functional facilities in the room (eg, heater, air-conditioned, small fridge). The lobby has a pool table and breakfast is served there too. There is a notice board that shows the excursions that they provide and prices are negotiable (if you travel as a group). For those fishing fanatics, the owner can also help to arrange fishing trips at reasonable prices. There is a must go and that’s to the private island called Vaagali; Its tranquil and beautiful. Overall, the entire stay was relaxed and enjoyable.

The toilet smells!”
I can't find three. Price maybe.
This hotel is at the other end of the island. 7-8 minutes walk from the popular beach area. Distance is not a problem. But the toilet smells terrible and spoiled our time there. The owners should find a soluition to thhat otherwise I won't recommend this hotel to anybody.

What you pay is what you get.”
Clean rooms, good working air-condition, friendly atmosphere
Me and my friends spent 6 nights in Summer Villa Guest House. It was one of the cheapest accomodation options on the Maafushi Island. We were welcomed by the staff at the ferry dock and they took our luggages. Summer Villa is about 5 minutes by walk from the dock (about 10 minutes of slowly walk from the beach), and has prison, and few hotels in construction as its surroundings. On the ground floor there is a lobby with pool table, free wi-fi, comfortable sofas and tables. It is also a place where the buffet breakfast and dinner are served. We ate dinner only once (it cost 10$) because it was not very good (and we found out that it is expensive, because you can find better buffet for 6$). Breakfast were much better, every day quite the same: tost bread, butter, jam, sausages, eggs, great paste made of fresh coconut and tuna, some nudles, corn flakes, tea, coffe, juice, milk. In patio you can make a coffee or a tea all the time for free. Summer Villa has expensive excursions, but you can bargain if you have a group of people (but it is also not a problem to buy excursions somewhere else). We appreciate honesty of the Manager, who did not want to take us for dolphin cruise, because it was unlikely to see them (because of the weather). Our rooms were on the second floor, and it was nice, because we saw rooms on the ground floor and they have no window (technically they have windows but facing the corridor to the lobby). As conclusion I can say that it was very nice time I spent in Summer Villa Guest House, but it is possible to find something better in simillar price.

Resorts are overrated! I love the locals :-)”
The staff were amazing - helpful, attentive and always smiling! Free wi-fi in the lobby. Wide range of activites to choose from all led by the hotel staff!
Loved my stay at Summer Villa. Maafushi is a beautiful island with tons of locals to interact with and talk to. They are all so friendly and happy. The Summer Villa staff were extremely attentive and always smiling at us :-) The activities were all affordable and well-priced, much unlike that of rip off resort prices! The staff can arrange snorkelling, private island visits (Vaagali is a must go!) where you have a whole island to yourself the whole day with lunch included, night fishing (they cook the fish u catch for dinner!) and even resort day visits if you want to experience the luxury (so overrated tho honestly). Maafushi has a private beach on one side of the island where ladies can wear their bikinis if they wish to. But tbh i wasn't rly affected by the no bikini rule on Maafushi because most of the day we go out on excursions ie snorkelling, private island...and you can do whatever you want on those excursions. Highly recommend Maafushi/Summer Villa Guest House! Tip: they give discounts on their activities if you go in a bigger group!

Beach, food, peaceful
Easily the nicest part of Maafushi. The hotel is on the beach and has very nice large, cool rooms. Food is excellent especially the tuna curry. Not that cheap but good value for the Maldives.

Amazing place, great staff!”
great staff, many excursions, chill-out atmosphere
We arrived to Summer Villa after staying few days in a resort and we were so much positively surprised. The atmosphere there is so relaxed, friendly and sincere than we felt like home. The guesthouse has 8 rooms for now but soon they will be opening an attachement with more rooms. Small amount of guests, who were mainly young travellers, creates a college style of life. Behind the entrance gate is a small garden with tables for serving food or just chilling under coconut palms (feel free to climb up for a coconut..). On the wall are fins and googles for FREE hire. Reception inside the villa opens straight to lounge with sofas, billiard table and tea/coffee machine which is available non stop and for FREE. Rooms are equipped with double or single beds, some have a small fridge, all have private bathroom with hot water and lots of free accesories (toothbrush kit, cotton buds, shampoo...). Guesthouse is in a B&B style but you can book a bufet dinner for 10$/person and lunch menu is available aswell. All the food was just amazing prepared mainly by owners wife or himself. All the staff is very helpful and it seems more like one big family working together for the good of thing. They can arrange many excursions for fair prices (dolphin cruise, snorkling with sharks, mantas, whaleshark, trips to sand bank and many more), also traditional music performance of local boys group. There is FREE wifi aswell in all the rooms. In Maafushi you have a great chance to be part of local daily life, there are shops with relatively cheep things, souvenire shops, dive centres, pharmacy. On one end of this island are 2 beaches where it is allowed to swim in bikini. We could you bicycles of the guesthouse to go around. We liked it so much that we left a resort, where we went after 5 days in Summer Villa, just to go back and enjoy some more of this fantastic place.

very happy time, the best guesthouse in my life”
the staff is very entertain us and always pleased to service us like 7 star hotel, the excursions are so much varieties with cheap price, the room is the best rate in maafushi with sea view window.
We are group of Thai ladies bagpacking there and very impressed from the first step in maafushi, the summer villa staffs came to pick up at ferry. Then we walked to guesthouse and very warm welcome fromthem, the owner, he manage everything perfect and always make us happy. This is family business so they take care us like their family. All staffs are very friendly and helpful, they do 24 hr service, we can order food at very late night. the young manager who is really good hospitality and handsome. We got sea view room in new building, very cheap compared to other guesthouses and so nice decoration, they clean room, change towel and toilet things everyday, cannot imagine this price they very perfect like this. Food is very delicious, they change the menu everyday and always have seafood, now we fall in love with Maldivian food. Lobby area is very clean and have pool table to enjoy. They also have free wifi with very good internet connection that we upload our facebook all the time. Finally we found the best guesthouse in the world, very thanks to all summer villa guys. We promise to go back there again.

Be careful for prices!!”
Nice night fishing excursion, helpful staff, clean rooms but without windows
Summer Villa is located far from beach, restaurants- next to the prison and police. Staff is helpful but unfortunately you have to watch out the excursions prices they are not words. They set the bill with much higher price than it has been fixed. They have the most expensive excursions in the island- sometimes prices are even two times higher. Breakfast daily monotonous-boiled eggs, toast, jam, tuna and pancakes.

It can't be any worse than this”
I am glad I had booked only one night so I was able to leave first thing in the morning
They didn't answer my emails. Smelly room, dirty floors, no window outside, tired bed, messy and dirty lobby and breakfast room, absent and nonprofessional staff, overpriced excursions... Located in between a mosque and a prison - at far end of the swimming beach. There's many other (100x better at the same price) guesthouses on the island, there's also other nice local islands with guesthouses.
