A very familiar and friendly stay on a local Maledivian Island. If you like to explore the country (not only resorts), enjoy the local life of the Malediviens and being a part of a family, this Guesthouse would be the perfect choice for you.
You have to respect the muslim rules (no bikini, no alcohol). Maafushi is not a holiday island, but the guestfamiliy would like to organize many different excursions for you (dolphin watching, trip to a resort, trip to a uninhabitant island, trip to a sandbank, night fishing, water sports, snorkeling, diving etc.).
I liked the activities they offer for cheap prices.
The food wasn't that good, but fair.
very good guesthouse, clean, comfortable, friendly atmosphere with an helpfull staff and nice buffet prepared...
The Summer Villa Guest House is a very good place to in be when you are visiting the Maladives. The people are very very friendly (like family), the food that they serve is very good, the room is nice and clean, there are good excursions like snorkeling and fishing and the island beach is beautifull. If you want a nice and peacfull stay go to this location. The 1,5 hour trip with the ferry from Male City to the Maafushi island is also very beautifull and only cost 3 $. On this trip you will all so see the beauty of the Maladives. When we go back to the Maladives we will go back to the Summer Villa Guest House to feel the real Maladive.
First of all I would like to appreciate excellent service and staffs with very friendly and decent behaviour. Rooms were excellent and cleaned, good sanitation facilities, I had ever experienced. Self cooking arrangements and other facilities like fishing & dolphin shows was an additional pleasure for us. In all means it was an wonderful life time experience for me and my family. Best Regards
friendliness of staff - their keenness to help you
overpriced rooms - and trips (this is true for whole maldives) guesthouse not on beach
Friendly staff, cheap transportation (ferry), interesting excursions.
I like most their Staff .. they were all very friendly and caring and the food was nice.
Location was not as per my expectations but all over its was cool.
The staff was extreemly friendly and helpfull, really flexible with our timing.
Friendly staff, price.
Breakfast is the same and not very tasty.
The price was good, despite all taxes.
It's a family business and they did an excellent job. They also provide buffet at a reasonable price.
Airport transfer is very costly and the visit to adjoining island is also expensive. You will save on the room rate however will end up spending on commuting between islands in order to do water sports.
I just fell in love with Maldives cause of Summer Villa guys! I came back on midnight and 15 minutes after I have been looking for another flying tickets to that paradise! Possibility to all who would like to see Maldives for a reasonable prize. Owners offer a lot of possibilities for a free time. Night fishing, snorkling, barbecue, trips do resort. Will come back for sure. And they are like family, warmest regards to Ali and Naseem!
Pitty that womans in swimsuit are not allow to swim in the island. Also to take care about clean Maafusi will be nice! And maybe just mine opinion, but I will prefere more soft bed, that was the only thing I was looking forward at my home :)
Hotel is run by family, located at local village. Villagers are very friendly. Staff was excellent, hotel is clean and very good. They offer also common activities like snorkeling, dolphins watching, beach picnic etc. Transport from Male is possible by local ferry (2 usd) or by speed boat arranged by hotel (price depends on how many people go by boat, we payed 45 usd per person).
Menu was not fully our taste because of poor supply of Maldives food market. Village and beach is little bit dirty as local people do not care about cleanness too much. Ladies are not allowed wear bikini on the local beach but guest house drops you on the resort beach if you don't like the restriction.
Nice small hotel, clean rooms, friendly staff, good place for snorkeling, they arrange the transfer from/to the airport. They organize many activities. The island is inhabited, you can see how they live, prices are relatively low, however you should be aware of islamic rules (no alcohol, bikini,...), but you can visit some resorts nearby where the rules are less strict.
I wasn't informed in advance, that they add 10% service charge to everything and 5.5% when paying with credit card. The best is paying in $ cash. They didn't warn us, we will be sunburned despite sun cream when snorkeling (never snorkled before). The ferry goes to the island once a day except fridays.
