Maayafushi Resort MaldivesPosted Feb 2, 2012 on Hotels.com
This was a last minute trip without much research. Maayafushi Resort is Italian owned and full of Europeans. As we had to eat every meal at our pre-assigned table for two, it was difficult to meet others. The only people we talked to were a Japanese couple we met snorkeling. The snorkeling is super, both on trips to other reefs and right by the hotel And that is why we were there! We were slightly overcharged for our snorkeling trips and couldn't find anyone who spoke enough English to straighten it out at checkout.

We had a great 5 days here at the end of November. The weather was changeable but that did not stop us exploring the reef inside and out and going on expeditions to other reefs. Super fish; 5ft sting ray inside the reef with 4ft reef sharks too! My feet were attacked by a 3inch blue and yellow fish who thought I was invading his privacy! The food was of very good quality and variety and beer and wine at dinner included were just fine.The bar area was lovely and the choice of included drinks more than adequate. The room was kept beautifully clean with new towels daily. Most of the guests were Italian and lively and friendly. The only time when we felt that a lack of understanding Italian detracted from our enjoyment was during some of the excursions.

Maayafushi is beautiful. The hotel staff treated us so well. The included food and drinks are a great deal. The rooms are clean. There are activities on the island and the fishes and reef are amazing.

Very friendly and well organised island resortPosted Dec 5, 2011
My wife and I stayed in November 2011 for one week. We had a lovely time. The food was of good quality - buffett style with plenty of salads veg and fish. Also Maldivian & Italian food. (The resort is Italian owned). The staff were all friendly and helpful. A highlight was swimming with four Eagle Rays just outside the reef! Also the float-plane transfers!

Great Resort - will go again!Posted Nov 18, 2011
We had a great time at Maayafushi! The employees are great and their food buffet is good! The rooms are well maintained two to three times a day. The beds were quite firm, but the view, amazing experience made up for it! Recommendations - bring high SPF suntan lotion. Premium liquor is an addtional cost, but reasonable. The all-inclusive has a pretty decent selection of drinks, one mexican beer and some wines. We will come back for a minimum of 7 -14 days next time. Five days just was not long enough! AMAZING snorkeling!

One of the best holidays ever.Posted May 15, 2011
We had a great time. The food was so nice and so were the staff. We were the only English speaking for the first part of the trip among Italians, Germans etc but it was not a problem. They all did their best to communicate with us and made us very welcome. Loved it . Expedia was also great. Every run to plan.

Closest thing to paradise I have seenPosted Nov 11, 2010
The bungalows on this island mostly have direct beach access (ours was about 10m off the beach) and are surrounded by palm trees ans shrubs. Half open bathroom is stunning - one shower under the sky. Extremely clean, in particular when considering the tropical climate on the island. Sand removed twice daily, by very friendly staff. Extra efforts for celebrations, e.g. birthday in our case. White beaches, turquoise water, and a rich house reef with all sorts of life. Only (minor!) point - Italian dominated loud evening entertainment. The actual point is that it took place in the ONLY bar, so having a quiet drink required ordering drinks to go and picking a few seats somewhere on the beach. Great setting for a romantic time away from it all!
