  • Liked: Staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities

Staying here is like being in someone’s home with really good personal chefs available. You only need a pair of slip ons to leave at the front door and you can walk everywhere on the Island. On days when we didn’t have an excursion we quickly developed a routine of a few hours at the beach , coffee at the local cafe then an afternoon rest. This isn’t a tourist resort with lots of bars and restaurants, more a local way of life experience and relaxing time.

“Real Paradise Island”

Magic Island still immaculate. The guest house is well located and offer every possible comfort. The view is stunning and staff will charm you with great food and every possible attention. It takes almost two hours of speedboat from Male but is all worth of it. The place offer amazing escursion, do not miss the sand pic-nic. We had a memorable stay, rooms are clean and spacious. You must book a sea view room.

Pros: View,staff,food

Cons: .

Location: Excursions

Sehr schönes Hotel. Zimmer sind zwar sehr schlicht, dafür aber sauber und haben im Obergeschoss einen schönen Balkon mit Blick auf Palmen und eine große Lagune. Das Personal war wie auf den anderen Local Islands super freundlich und hilfsbereit. Man kann im Hotel auch sehr gut essen. Wir können das Riveli Retreat nur empfehlen.

Bed & Breakfast sympathique

De réalisation toute récente, avec encore quelques ratés d'installation et un centre de plongée en cours de d'installation, Riveli est une alternative économique au gros resort très cher et anonyme. Le personnel est adorable, la cuisine excellente, la chambre suffisamment grande, le lit parfait, la salle de bain simple mais suffisante elle aussi.

Pros: L'accueil, les prix, le côté simple mais suffisant, sans luxe.

Cons: Les aléas de toute construction récente, essentiellement des problèmes techniques d'eau, d'électricité qui ont été résolus au fur et à mesure.

Location: Cela donne sur une cocoteraie et sur la mer, avec des couchers de soleil fabuleux. le port est à une minute à pied. Plongée, snorkeling, lecture.
