It may not easy to selfplan a first trip to Maldives, but with good help from Ismath and Amir everything went well. In Horsburgh guesthouse and Goidhoo Island people were friendly and we'd had lovely conversations about everything! Guesthouse has everything you need, it's clean and cosy. You'll be shown the 2 beaches nearby where you can get by cycle (borrowed those from guesthouse) - after that, just relaxing, snorkling and swimming. Best regards for everyone in Horsburgh guesthouse!

First time at Maldives and straight fell in love! What a wonderful island, so nice people and Horsburgh guesthouse was so nice place to spend time. Extremely friendly staff, exellent food, clean and big quiet rooms. Perfect for relax and enjoy beach life and nice local atmosphere. I have now travel 3 months, around south east asia, and this Goidhoo stop was best place during this trip. Really wish that we have time to come back. Best thing about Goidhoo was people. Every eavning I spent time with locals playing football and wolleyball. After that nice family dinner in Horsburgh guesthouse. Staff was superfriendly. Really like! 10 points!

Arrived here from Male with speedboat, was greeted by hotel staff at dock and we walked to hotel (just like 3-4 minutes to the hotel). Coconut water was waiting me at hotel and then I got briefed how everything works and some information about locals habits, which were all very good information to know. After lunch they accompanied me to the bikinibeach (which is about 5 min away by bike, they will lend you bikes from hotel), the beach was big, clean and beautiful. Also there is only 2 guesthouses at Goidhoo, so bikinibeach was very quiet, the first days I was the only one using it. The room was spacious and bed comfy, wi-fi worked fine, only minus (and it´s seriously not a big deal) is that there were no fridge at room but you could borrow hotels fridge outside which was nice. Location of the hotel is good, close to shops and waterfront. Keep in mind that it is a local island so you can´t run around the town in miniskirts and -tops. You can wear them to the beach, but at town you (ladies) should cover your shoulders and knees. I went fishing with (Amir or Ahmed, sorry I´m bad with names :)) and it was totally worth it. Caught some fishes, saw dolphins and manta jumping, also beautiful sunset from the boat. Also worth mentioning is that the food was amazing, I could decide what time I would like to eat both breakfast and lunch, and no matter what they served, the food was so tasty. Highly recommend staying at Horsburgh Island Guesthouse.

Thank you, Hussein, Ahmed and Amir for the perfectly arranged holiday. We loved your guesthouse and hospitality a lot. The guesthouse has nice small territory with dining space and a hammock and we loved the local food you served us. Although the beach is quite far, we used bicycles and for some days we were the only people on the beach which is also very relaxing. Thank you, Ahmed, for an unforgettable picnic trip to uninhabitat island - it was smazing. Wish prosperity to your guesthouse and hope to visit you again.

Our holiday on Goidhoo island was absolutely amazing thanks to Adam, Azha and all the other team members. They are doing everyhting with their hearts, and you can feel it in every detail at this lovely guesthouse. We were on full-board and the food was excellent, lots of fish and the Maldivian breakfast is a thing to remember and try to make this back at home. The bikini beach was lovely, you could get in the water in one place and the current took you to this shallow water where you could just walk back to the beach. Free wi-fi and toiletries in the guesthouse, and also free bikes. So you can go exploring the whole island with its huge crabs in the forest and also on the beach. Perfect spot for snorkelling as well, as Adam knows all the good places. We could see sharks, rays and many turtles not to mention the hundreds of colourful fish. Thank you for everything and keep up the good work!

11 of us were there for 5D5N including couples, family and young children. We find this as a hidden paradise if you like to travel with the local people and experience their lifestyle + sight seeing. This is a still non commercialism place where the local people here are friendly and sincere and having very relax, leisure time here. This guess house is very back to nature type where according to Adam, they pick the death tree from the island and make it the furniture by themselves. Air-cond and water heather is provided. Shall you like the cooling water, you might just enjoy the cooling water in the bathroom shower / hidden open air shower. The room is quite big with a living room. Advice to bring own toiletry, insect repellent (mosquitoes attack), sun glass, hat, sunblock and so on... We been enjoy so much with the arrangement by Adam and team where the activities is not too pack with just nice resting time and some spare time for us to visit the local people, the island itself. We been experience some activity like BBQ at sand bank, sunset fishing, snorkeling, sand bank sunrise + breakfast, swimming... We did visit the local people and join them in volley ball, basketball, swing, fishing, making dessert, tea break, local fish market, crab hunting... The staff is very friendly and hospitality as i told my friends that they are like Santa for me, they will try to answer everything i ask, show me / teach me (eg: dessert making/ the plant), they try to get what i requested done (reasonable only ya). The kitchen always prepare good food for us, we never felt hungry throughout stay in the guess house. Miss them once we leave the island.. Will go back a day soon.. Hope this help u all..

A trip worth 3 times the price, we stayed 5 days. Ahmed was at your service 24/7 and there were never any problem with anything Adam welcomed us at the airport and as soon as we arrived so we felt welcomed and a big relaxation feeling. Then we met Ahmed and his friends and family and we felt instantly very safe after some fearsfull feelings of were we were heading. The room was wery clean and and the food was in my opinion the best in many vacations, even been living in 5 stars hotels (this i believe everyone who likes local food will agree on). The island was interesting and well worth 5 spent days on because of its differences to explore. Ahmed had made a peaceful place for us at the beach and cleaned it everyday. He is also a very strong guy so it felt that he could help with anything. The island is beautiful with very good snorkeling around it if you want to see many fishes and turtles, though its recommended you go on snorkeling trips to a little deeper water if you want to see the most, because the beach is very long.The instructor Hassan is a very good guide of helping you finding what you want to see. This is a heavenly beach compared to many other asian countries, but still it isnt maldives best beach. But you dont need the best beach when you have the best service. For that is what we wanted for our vacation, best service with heavenly beach and to experience the maldives way of living and to see many Fishes. We got even more, we also got crabhunting, own island picnic, fun evenings and the feeling of that we were home emedietly and thats rare these days in vacation places. Therefore we will return someday and be recommending friends and family this place. Just for the experience of feeling like a celebrity again or because we already miss Ahmed and the other ones already. Therefore we also feel ashamed that it took so long to write this, maybe its because that this place got us to continue not thinking too much and forgot that time goes faster then you think. I think so because, after the food here we didnt want any alocohol or candy, only fruits and organic food for a long time, so this short stay affected us in a very good way. Best of wishes to Adam, Ahmed , Hassan and everyone else there! Best regards Martin and Niina

Adam and his staff made our vacation wonderful. Great food, fantastic atmosphere, clean rooms, super hospitality and excelent service. And of course, a beautiful island. If you want to come to a place where the crew really care and wants to take care of you, go to Horsburgh! You will love it. Every day is an adventure in paradise.
