Steps away from the Police Office and Prison.

Pros: There is a pool table free to use also kid bikes. The rooms are clean and they have cool ways to make beds. The room service menu is priced well.
Cons: Attention to detail on the breakfast buffet. I tried the cereal, but it was clearly stale. I tried two hard boilded eggs, one was rotten.
Location: I recommend the Sand Bank adventure where they will take you to a small island with no trees, just sand, and leave you there for as long as you want.
This family run resort has a very helpful patriarch who is the go-to person for any issue that requires a decision. Something every traveler should know about this island is that it probably isn't what you're thinking of when you think of Maldives. The beach takes up a paltry ten percent of the island. Forty percent is taken up by the jetty and the other side of the island is where the garbage dump is. You can't go near the water's edge where the prison is either. Another thing that travelers need to know especially budget travelers, is that the resort that you are staying with "owns" your right of passage back to Male, or wherever. For example, you cannot use another speedboat to go back to Male, without the "permission" of your hotel. The price of a speed boat for the twenty - thirty minute jaunt to Male can cost up to one hundred and fifty USD, compared to the ferry that is 3 USD. The ferry is mysteriously full from time to time. The hotel will gladly pick you up though. Another problem is that if you are ready to go, and the hotel is taking a group out snorkeling, then you must wait. This particular hotel is ok. Sometimes the breakfast buffet serves stale cereal, or rotten hard boiled eggs, but generally it's a pretty good breakfast.

Summer Villa Guest House - Building Works - Noisy!

Posted Mar 20, 2012 on Hotels
Stayed here for 3 nights and got absolutely NO sleep. Adjoining building is being knocked down and there is a common wall. Noise starts at 7am each day and goes until 9PM. I complained and they didn't care. Would never stay here again. Also no window in the bedrooms which all open to an inside sitting area so again noisy from other guests . Beds are as hard as a rock so might as well sleep on the floor. Have stayed at much nicer places on Maafishi so would recommend staying somewhere else.
