Positive Reviews

Paradise found

Guests rave about the hotel's location as it is near a number of beaches and is also within walking distance of the main harbour of Maafushi where speedboats and ferries from Male arrive and depart. It's also where you will likely be landing when getting to island.

Staff excels

The employees at the property go out of their way to take care of you during your stay. Travellers point out that the staff is not only hard working but friendly as well and help add to the overall ambiance of the hotel.

Take a tour

There is a tour desk at the property which can help you plan a number of day trips and excursions including activities like snorkelling. Visitors note that the tours are a lot of fun and reasonably priced all things considered.

Negative Reviews

Food nothing special

There is an on-site restaurant that serves a breakfast buffet in the morning and offers an a la carte menu for lunch and dinner. Several visitors state that the food offered at the restaurant is only average in terms of quality and add that the menu is somewhat lacking as well.

Beds not so relaxing

Some guests say the beds found in the rooms of the hotel are not all that comfortable and take some time to adjust to. While the rooms are deemed to be pretty nice overall, the beds are the one area visitors wish was better.

Wi-Fi takes its time

A few travellers claim the internet speed at the property is a little sluggish. While the Wi-Fi is free and you can connect to it easily in the rooms and common areas, the speed is slow no matter where you happen to be at.
