This guest house is run by local people - father and son. They try their best to bring the most. Room was nice and clean, equipped with air con as well as fan. Breakfast was included but was nothing special - eggs and sausages. We would prefer some local breakfast such as Mashuni. Nearby there are some local restaurants, I... More

If you're looking for budget Maldives, this might be a tood option. The inn is situated on Maafushi island, where you can meet local people. Concerning this, bear in mind that Maldives are muslim country and you should walk around covered, but if you're at the beach, bikinis are okay. Rooms were nicely furnished and clean...

The people here is very kindful and helpful. The room is quite clean and very well maintained. The food also very nice, fresh and good cooked. The only shortage is the island doesn't have good spot for snockeling. But the hotel will provide affordable transport to bring to nearer spot. In general, it is value for your money. You also...

We checked in for 2 nights and everything went fine. We had night fishing the night of our arrival. Note that all things might be charged. We were just surprised when we asked them to cook the fish that we caught, we were charged 5usd each fish! However, the food was fantastic. The people were actually warm and very helpful.... More

The rooms in the guest house are well presented, modern, cleaned thoroughly and just what we were looking... More
