              A lovely place with the benefits of both a resort and a local island”

              We stayed 4 nights and very much enjoyed the place, which is very peaceful with a beautiful beach. We were in the cheapest rooms which are still very nice - they are not along the beach but still it is very close. Spacious, clean, great shower, with fridge and safe. The best parts = breakfast is so delicious with lots to choose from, the beach is stunning, the dive centre staff are great (thanks Luca and Max!) and everyone is very smiley. There is free yoga every morning, free snorkelling and free kayaking. Downside - I think 30usd per person per meal (lunch or dinner) is quite expensive, but luckily you can take a bike into the village and eat at a local cafe for around 5usd and the food is very good. Tips - the cups provided in the room are very small, so next time I would bring a travel mug because i like a big cup of coffee! They provide lovely soap but no shampoo or conditioner so bring your own. Insect repellent is needed. Snorkelling gear is not free so bring your own.

              A unique experience of the Maldives.”

              We had a really enjoyable week at Barefoot eco. It is a well laid out site with nice rooms/apartments and very friendly staff. It seems quiet, you never have the feeling that there are many people around even on days when the tables taken in the restaurant tells you otherwise. The facilities are good, the rooms nicely equipped, and the food is excellent - congratulations to chef and his staff. The sea is the clearest we have seen anywhere in the world and the beach beautifully sandy. The hotel does a nice range of activities from diving to snorkelling and cycling, some free, others reasonably priced. One advantage of this hotel is that it is on an inhabited island while still having a private beach. It is nice to be able to walk or cycle into the small town. We would recommend it to anyone.

              Best buget Maldives resort....in this price range”

              Strictly four star hotel. Facilities are well maintained. Room is basic but functional. Comfortable bed. Large bathroom, shower area is of adequate size. No TV but this does not bother me as the sea view is out there for you to enjoy, day and night. Sufficient sunbeds on the beach streched all along the beach. Pier is a good spot to take pictures. Buffet lunch and dinner are the best I have ever had. I would say it is of Western cuisine types more than the Asian ones, which fit best for me. Staff working at the restaurants are the best as well - very polite, courteous, smiling, serving free bottled water without pushing you for other drinks. Bottled water daily in the room as well as in the restaurant (free)!. Recommend to choose the full board so that you need not bother to eat outside for the lunch except you will be away to excursions everyday during your stay.

              Tranquility at its best ”

              The resort is very quiet and it never felt crowded. Plenty of space to relax and feel like you are the only guest staying. Food is delicious thanks to the culinary skills of chef Christian and its team. Snorkeling trip every day at 3pm could last a bit longer but it's very well organized. House reef is about 400 meters away and not the best I have seen so maybe it's not the best if you are looking for a snorkeling heaven. Service is very attentive and staff is outstandingly courteous. Big shout out to our waiter Pradeep extremely friendly and professional. The dive shop is very well run by Davide and Miranda even though our dives were a bit disappointing due to the bad weather and sea conditions. The rooms are very spacious (we had an ocean view) and extremely clean. Ideal if you are looking for simplicity without giving up the excellent service and food. Not the best for snorkeling. Loved the fact that water is included at dinners and twice a day in the room. Overall a great holiday

              The Best Holiday EVERR!!!!”

              Amazing hotel!!! Very kind and friendly staff. The hotel had very good facilities like scuba diving, hobie cat sailing and snorkelling with trained professionals. The food was excellent and the rooms were spacious. It has complimentary bike rides in which you can take the cycle and explore the village, even the village had some decent restaurants like cool garden and café alyms cafe, which is around 1km and 4km respectively and you can easily reach there by cycle. It has complimentary kayaking. It even has beach volleyball where every evening you can play with the other guests & hotel staff ! Me and my family really had a lot of fun and I suggest its one of the best hotel in Maldives for family vacations. Though it is a little far from Male but it was worth it !!! It provides an escape for you from your everyday routine. Very well maintained private beach & beautiful scenic view of the ocean. Concept of walking barefoot in the hotel is simply great.......

              You might think of luxury resort rightnow but please choose Ecobarefoot!! You wont regret. You get almost same luxury resort quality with affordable price. The hotel has absolutely everything. Diving centre (i am now qualified finally!), spa and massage therapy, pool, daily excrusions great food everyday and the amazing beach!!!! You cant get bored !!! And the hotel management is very good!! You only need to focus on spending good times, the rest they will take care of. My tips : Excrusion - free snorkelling everday! And please do sand bank excursion. Its so beautiful that i only want to choose Ecobarefoot for this in the future :-) Culture & biking - you will see loval people and learn their culture! Meals - i only took breakfast and dinner and ending up paying lunch at the hotel. Recommend you to book full board. You dont need to take beach towels they will provide on daily basis if you need. I was there in 4-12 may 2017 , plenty of sun!

              The hotel is how it is reflected in photographs, the accommodation was very comfortable and the resort was filled with plenty of activities that will fill your days. They have limited rooms which controls the amount of guests that can be present at resort, so it's refreshing to have enough space and freedom while you enjoy your vacation time. Though the travel time to the resort was far, i would say its really worth it and it is value for money! Would love to revisit when i have the chance again. Thank you for my amazing first experience in Maldives, just wished i was there longer!

              We stayed in Barefoot for 5 nights, although at the end we would have prefered stay a biy more :) we slept in a Ocean View room that allows you to sleep and wake up watching at the immense blue, which is beautiful! We stayed in Full Board, and it was so convenient so you do not need to spend extra for lunch in the bar that was not cheap. Apart from enjoying relaxing beach time, we involved ourselves in many different activities; kayaking is great to reach the reef, snorkeling with marine biologist Ella for manta monitoring and to observe another reef nearby, diving with Miranda, learning about corals and turles in the night sessions they do in the lounge (they explain about them, how to identify, etc), morning yoga by the beach, massages (I totally recommend the Barefoot foot experience if your feet/legs are tired!), and the boat-bar (which is like a pirate boat in the sea where you can consume alcohol drinks)! I only have good words for the staff also, who have all so well organized!

              Honeymoon in Maldives”

              We were there for honeymoon, everything was perfect except hubby had a food poisoning / gastrointestinal infection, suspect got it from the food served, went to the local doctor, claimed it was from the food we ate, was prescribed with some medication, all good but when we highlighted to the hotel management they got really defensive and denied that is any of their fault (we haven't eaten anything elsewhere during our stay there, had 3 meals a day in the resort), we were left upset by the hotel manager, it's such a shame, everything was perfect and if they just honor that, manage the case properly instead of being too defensive we would have left them a perfect review.

              Very very good with lots of peace and quiet. Practicality our own "'private" beach as not many people there the week of Eid. Lack of prescription masks limited our involvement. Lack of card games/other activities.
