I've spent here 14 days last March, and I couldn't have chosen any better: I've really and absolutely felt like home! Since the very first info emails the staff has been beyond nice and kind, traits which were well-founded once I physically got in Ukulhas. The guesthouse is quite small (which is better, imho), but the rooms are spacious and cozy: fully equipped with a king-size bed, wardrobe, mirrors, sockets (UK type) and adapters, both air conditioning and ceiling fan, fridge, tea and coffee facilities, flat screen TV and decoder. The ensuite bathroom is wide and offers both sanitised and warm water. Wi-fi is for free and the network is great even in the garden and the courtyard. Breakfast is served in the inner garden, featuring 4 different options (including the typical Maldivian one) and a big variety of drinks to choose among. The surroundings are very silent and quiet and the beach is only 20 steps away from the guesthouse. The guesthouse also offers many extra excursions to meet every possible desire and make everyone's holiday perfect. I would recommend the Manta Safari: that is really an incredible experience, totally worth the price. Nihad (the owner), Afrah (the manager) and the staff have all been friendly and awesome: I've truly never met anyone as kind and nice as they all were to me. The island is tiny, very lively, yet quiet. You will find some restaurants, groceries and cafès and they all accept both Maldivian Rufiyaas and US Dollars. People are friendly and polite, but as tourists we must never forget we are the guests here, and since this is an Islamic country, it shouldn't be too much of an effort for us to pay respect and adapt to some basic rules of dresscode-decency while wandering around the streets (nobody asks you to wear a burqa, but at least a t-shirt and not-too-short shorts would be appreciated). The bikini-beach, anyway, is very wide (it covers an entire coast-side of the island) and, of course, bikinis are allowed there. I can't do anything but recommend the Coral Reef View Inn: if you are really looking for a relaxing holiday in cozy guesthouse (being conscious of what a guesthouse-holiday entails), then this is the place for you!

Spent here one week this January. Good staff, great location, room was also really spacious and good. Maldivian breakfast was good. All in all, everything worked as they should. Bikini beach is about 10 metres away. Can recommend this place.

The staff was kind and helpful, the cozy feeling as if you were staying in a home not a hotel, but most of all the AMAZING location..right on the long bikini beach, right on the edge of the reef.. You just wake up, walk 20 meters and swim with the fishes. You can see friendly baby sharks, huge octopuses, nemos, right there, 50 meters from the shore. And perfectly safe as the currents were slow and you can just float away. I recommend taking the sand bank trip, you`ll literally feel like you are in paradise.

We did a family holiday trip to the Maldives this easter but didn't want to stay at a typical Resort Island, so we decided to go to one of the Islands where the local population lives too. Finally decided for Coral Reef. We experienced great service from the beginning right up to the end. Boat transfer from Airport to Coral Reef View Inn was organised by the owner, worked without any problem. Service during our stay was really good, too, we had a reliable room service, a delicious breakfast and a nice Garden to sit in during lunchtime and in the evening for example for playing cards. The only thing to critizise was that in one of our two rooms the bathroom frequently smelled bad. Another great thing to mention definitely is the location of Ciral Reef: the beach is about 15 meters from the door and you find the most beautiful part of the islands reef right at this point. The reef in general is simply amazing, we saw a lot different fish and other extraordinary animals/things like turtles, rays, seastars, beautiful coral blocks,... Supermarkets and restaurants to get food in were close to the hotel (okay everything is kind of close to it the island is 200 on 200m) and shown a d recommended by the hotel staff. Return to the Airport in the end was again organised and directed by Nihad (the owner) and worked without any problem. In general an amazing stay, great experince of the maldives and definitely to recommend.
