We spend 3 nights in this great hotel considering cost and quality and we felt like at home with nice atmosphere, great location and fantastic service from the people in charge of the place specially for the kindness of Mr Mohamed Sadiq, who helped us in everything we needed.

I stayed here with my fiancée for two nights. Initially we wanted to stay one night only, but we changed mind, as this is a lovely and peaceful place, two steps from the beach (also departure point for snorkel trips on Pigeon Island). We also appreciated the shady courtyard with its beautiful trees full of funny little squirrels, the good... More

Such a wonderful stay! We were only going to stay 2 nights on the 31st July and ended up extending our stay for a further 2 evenings. It's reasonably priced with a great breakfast. We instantly felt relaxed as soon as we arrived thanks to the staff and the peacefulness of the garden. The staff and managers are truly fantastic!... More

Basic but clean, large rooms. Staff is very helpful and can inform about lots of practical stuff (tuktuk to/from station, scooter rental, pigeon island boattrip) as well as interesting info on the surroundings. Breakfast is OK and very filling. Close to the beach, around 150 meters. Quiet inner garden with lots of shadowy areas if need be.

We stayed for two nights and had a nice stay. It is basic but very welcoming, the staff is really friendly and speaks English very well. Decent breakfast and very close to the beach. If you're looking for a nice and friendly budget stay then this place is worth looking at!

I went to Shahira Hotel while my stay in Nilavile. We arrived in the evening after a long drive from the east coast and we were pleased to quickly be taken to our rooms while my partner sorted out the checking in. We got three rooms next to each other. Rooms are basic without any luxury, but the important thing... More

:) Close to the beach and Pigeon island, eating in the nice garden watching chipmunks, manager was very nice and organized everything for us. Good breakfest. :( Manager asked me to write this review at least 7 times - quite annoing. Rooms were clean but not very practical - not possible to close outside doors (smashing by wind if you...
