Positive: Value - Rooms are decent for the price. Location is far from the bikini beach, but the entire island is small, so no sweat. The value makes up for it. Negatives: On request, I was told in the morning that they’ll shift me to room on a higher floor. Had kept my bags ready. When I came back they didn’t move - which is alright, but they didn’t bother to clean my room (they had the keys). I was told I have to “tell” them to clean the room. There’s an overweight guy (not being disrespectful, but people need to know whom NOT to deal with). He’s argumentative, egoistic, confrontational and unreasonable. His tone was very bad, aggressive & overflowing with ego. I was also told to move to the higher floor, I have to pay extra - which they didn’t tell me in the morning when I made the request. The other staff are ok, but avoid this man. He need training to be in hospitality industry. And maybe anger management.

It was bad stay there, all more or less was good but last day when we must go back to Male, the boss told us we had a local ferry at 11.45am and 1pm so he went with us to the harbour and then tell us that there was not any ferry and force us to take a speedboat and pay 20$ per person, he lied us and we were very disgusting, so totally unrecommended hotel.

It's just 5 mins away from the beach using the bicycle ( free use). They have friendly staff that will make you feel at home in the island. Nabeeh planned everything for me, from the boat transfer, to early checkin and late checkout and the tour. It was a great help because it is my first time to travel solo in Maldives. They have different kind of tours to choose in. Just approach the facebook site and they will respond as soon as possible. Amazing tour! thank you for the amazing photos! i will be forever thankful for those. Thank you very much Summer Villa Guesthouse! to the guys who served my breakfast ( havent asked for the names), thank you for the smiles 😍 Thank you sir Nabeeh!

We spent two nights at Summer Villa and only can say positive things about the experience. Our booking was for a ground floor room, but as there was still other better rooms available, they decided to upgrade us, which was really nice. The room is big, with hot water shower, mini bar, safe box and even adaptors. They provide beach towels for free and you can use their snorkeling gear just by leaving a depo, returned to you upon use. Is a family run business, where the dinner is cooked by the owner's wife; completely recommended and the best price in the island as well. If you want maldivian home made cuisine (and inexpensive) come here! There is life music after dinner and it is served on the roof top of the guesthouse. If you are looking for a good value and maldivian experience in Maafushi, this will be your choice.

I stayed here from the end of April to just after the beginning of May and it was a very satisfying experience! I was on Maafushi for 1 week and this guest house provided everything one could want. Upon arrival on Maafushi, there is a rep from the hotel holding a wooden sign with the hotel's name on it and they have a small cart which they'll load your baggage onto and then go with you to the hotel. * Wifi is free in the room and even though I had forgot my international adapter for my laptop, they had one for me to borrow (and was free of charge!) They also have a little outside patio which guests would frequently use in the mornings and evenings to sit,eat, and talk, as well as an inside lounge with a small eating area in the back. On the top floor, (the rooftop), they offered a buffet dinner every evening and was a different array of foods each night and was super peaceful being outside and enjoying dinner after what was usually an eventful day. FYI: the breakfast I think was complimentary with your booking but the dinner had to be payed for each night, was $10, but was a buffet so you could take as much as you wanted to eat! I chose a smaller room since I was just a solo traveler and although it is quite basic, the main thing is that "it works each day" (haha). The room I had (which was right near reception on the ground floor), had it's own toilet/shower, small table with chairs, and a minibar (which was great because there is a small convenience store near the hotel where you can buy things like additional water, crackers, cookies, and even small croissants, and then keep them in the refrigerator for later consumption. For tours, they offer a HUGE array of half day and full day excursions to all different locations and a really great benefit is this: IF you're a solo traveler, (like myself), and want to make a booking to an excursion, be aware: you WILL be charged double the price. However, IF there are other people (even 2 people), who decide to go on the same tour as you on that particular day, your price will be slashed in half so what could be a $90 charge if I was traveling alone, it will drop all the way to only $45! This will REALLY be beneficial if you decide to do a full day trip to some of the high end resorts which will be VERY expensive if done independently. I ended up going to Olhuveli Beach & Spa (which I HIGHLY HIGHLY recommend going on), and thanks to a group of Lithuanians who were going as well, the price was slashed. Thankfully so, as going solo to this resort would have been VERY pricey! In fact, all the tours I did luckily had the company of others so I didn't have to pay exorbitant prices for ANY of the trips I went on. I also highly recommend going to Picnic Island which is a completely uninhabited island, and feels far from the rest of the world. Conclusively: the tours were very well organized, all which provided lunches, and made for extremely enjoyable days on what was a beautiful island nation! Reception was also always helpful in providing info about anything you had questions about, and you can exchange both U.S cash and Rufiya (Maldives currency), and normally you will book and pay for any tours the night before the excursion although sometimes they would invite you to go on excursions the morning of the event if there's availability and you can just pay then. In summary, I believe this accommodation is a good choice if you're seeking a decently priced hotel and one that offers great deals that will fully satisfy your time in what has got to be one of my favorite island destinations I've ever visited before!

Stayed here for 4days until I couldn't stand it anymore. Don't be fooled by other review's, its as bad as it can get especially considering that this is in Maldives. Its an old run down building very near the prison, far from any shop. I say: AVOID at any cost. Your money is all they care about. They will steal it if they have to. I had to pay more then total stated on booking.com upon checkin. And they could not even explain why. I payed for a room with Wi-Fi and a TV. Neither the WiFi or the TV did ever work, the only answer you will get when pointing it out is "maybe tomorow" ,the floor in the room was so disgusting i could barely walk on, with huge stains of bugs that have been crushed or whatever that was. Very old furniture and the fridge smelled so disgusting and was about 25 years old. The toiletbrush was so worn out that there was hardly any brush left. That shows how cheap they are. Trying to sell you excursions and dinner which was the most awful food i ever tasted and had to pay for, an old cooked fish wrapped in foil over the grill not even on, to make it look like ur getting fresh BBQ fish, breakfast is not much better, prepared in an small dirty not air conditioned old kitchen. Upon checkout when pointing out that there was no WiFi, no TV and my room could not be locked, because the lock was broken,(keep in mind I pointed this out to staff several times during my stay) she didn't even care, all she kept repeating was " give me 8dollars for the dinner. I wanted to talk to the manager, receptionist lied saying she is the manager. And was extremely rude, don't trust other reviews here, choose another place AVOID at any cost...

Me and my wife stayed in Maafushi for 7 nights. It is a local island. As soon as we landed, we headed directly to the airport ferry terminal. The airport is small, and we were out within 45 minutes. The airport ferry costs 2$ per person. It will take you to Male city in about 10-15 minutes. From there, we started walking to the Petrol Jetty. It took us about 45 minutes to reach there on foot. Walking was really not a good idea because of the heat. Better spend some money on taxi. I think it costs 5$-7$ and takes about 5 minutes. From the Petrol Jetty, we took the 3pm public ferry to Maafushi. It costed us 3$ per person. In about 90 minutes, we were in Maafuschi. A representative of Summer Villa was already there, who took us to the guest house. We took full-board with Summer Villa and believe that it was not really worth it. Because firstly, the food is not so expensive on the island. Secondly, if you are doing some water related activities there(for example: "Half day snorkeling trip"), they cover lunch or dinner. So my suggestion would be either to take just breakfast with your hotel/guesthouse or breakfast and dinner. We really enjoyed our stay in Maafushi. We stayed in Summer Villa for 7 nights. We really liked the place. The girl at the reception, Lauha, was very cooperative and supportive even before we came, answering all my emails and giving out every detail necessary. On my request, they decorated the room in honeymoon style, which was very nice. She and the entire staff were very nice and caring. We were very happy with the staff and the service. The room was average. Small things, which can be improved but did not really bother us. For example, the door lock was not so smooth, the cupboard was not so smooth either, etc. We do have one suggestion for Summer Villa. We would suggest them to either cover the pots or/and place fire under the pots while serving buffet. This way the food will remain warm for longer period of time. We were uncomfortable with one thing but we understood Summer Villa's position as well, which is why we never complained about it. When the guest house was full, the number of dishes were more than when the guest house was not full. Overall, a good time with Summer Villa too.
