“Confortable hotel good quality/price”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 28, 2014

I spent 6 nights in Venturo Inn in Maafushi. The team is friendly, respectuf, polite and helpful. They came to pick me up at the ferry, it was raining so much. The room is spacious, clean. They change towels everyday. There are fan and air conditionner, TV, desk, hot water.

The breakfast is the same everyday : sausages, eggs, toasts with butter and jam and coffee and tea. It could be boring for a long stay, but enough to get a full stomach and go to dive or anything else.

No meal for the lunch at the hotel, but they will help you to find a restaurant/cafe in Maafushi. There is the sunset cafe 200 m from the hotel.

Different acivities are available and the prices are corrects (excursions resort, dolphins cruise, picnic, snorkel,....)

There is a buffet for dinner. (6 $). About 8 differents meals, but same everynight. Meals are good. You might go to restaurants in Maafushi if you don't want to eat the same things each dinner.

I spent a really nice week at the hotel. It was pleasant ! And the price during low season is very interesting !

We only went to Venturo for dinners, therefore our review is only for their buffet dinner. There are at least three selections on the main course in addition to grilled fish (usually someone helped to cut the fish). Compared with similarly priced buffet in Male (e.g., SeaHouse), there are more to choose from. The locals don't know how to make the fish tasty, though. There are a large variety of fried rice, placed next to pasta. Fruit selections occupied another table together with french fries. The waiters provided frequent delivery of drinking water. Overall, that's a great deal on the Maafusi island.

The accommodation is quite basic however is has everything what is needed. The bed is comfy, you have plasma screen in the room ( we've never turned it on). There is AC, bathroom. The staff is very firendly always trying to assist you whatever it is. It's a perfect base for travelling around. Venturo offers really good deals for tours.
The breafast is basic. Dinner buffet it's really varied however it can become borring if you stay for longer time (we've stayed 7 nights).
If you plan to make excurcions to different island that's the accomodation you are looking for.
TIPS: don't go to Embudu villagge, as a guest you are treated rather unftriendly, you can't take the sunbed at all and you won't be treated well.

I along with 2 of my friends stayed for 3 days in this hotel. The rooms are clean, the hotel lobby is awesome, where guests generally relax and talk about their travels. The room rent is quite reasonable and the diner buffet is pretty cheap (6$). They have a board in the reception where they list the dates and prices for different water activities that are possible there. i went for midnight fishing and snorkeling at banana reef with the hotel staff. Their guide/coach(name sadid) is quite excellent at his profession. Had a great time there and will visit again for sure.

Room Tip: They just have 6 rooms and all rooms are of the same quality

We stayed at Venturo hotel for three days. There is only 6 rooms in this hotel, most of them without windows, but we only spend night there, and it was ok. Location is not very good, but island is not very big and all is quite near. Supermarket - 3 minutes, ferry -2 minutes. Breakfast is not very good, as you have only American breakfast (two sausages, eggs, toast and jam). Sometimes they have Maldivian breakfast ( Roshi, tuna with onion) - it's much better. Dinner is very cheap - 6$. Many people from other hotels comes there for dinner. Prices for excursions one of the cheapest on the island, but in iCom travel agency (it's 5 minutes nearby) mostly cheaper.

This relatively cheap place in the Maldives (65 euro a night for a good room) has cool people working there who are there all day to help you with anything.
They offer nice day trips to snorkel spots, uninhabited island and resorts.
The cool thing here is that all the prices stated can be lower if more people go on the trip. They are really open about that and we saved quite some money by going on a trip where already many others went to.

The food is good in the evening, the breakfast can become somewhat boring after some days (egg/sausages/toast/jam but tastes good!).

Thanks guys for giving us a cool time on your island!

cheers,

Patrick & Elise

Room Tip: We had room 4, which is close to the eating/chill room. We liked that!
