Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Alessia P wrote a review Jan 2017

Recently open, everythingh is new and clean, staff close and devoted to guests needs. They try to anticipate and suit any request offering solutions and surprises, always smiling. Open only since a couple of months: rooms comfortable and clean, large dining area outside, two sofas for relax. Food could be improved but they were open to all of requests, needs and suggestions in terms of timing, style of cooking (international and local), special needs for children.

Close to Dharavandhoo Divers (Virgilio and Jessica, strongly recomended for diving excursions and trips to islands) and always cohordinated with them to facilitate divers activities. If you look for a basic but comfortable place, this is the right place.

Very new facility with good service offered by local people. 3 minutes out of the airport. Everything new and well furnished. Room re ordered every day with provision of towels and everything needed.

Food might be improved even if the staff is fully committed to fill out every customer desire (well considering the limitation being on a remote atoll).

Basic accommodation within a small island out of resort circuit, that means experiencing really typical tastes, people, environment.

Best chance for those on budget who want to balance quality per price and focus on diving. Near the lodge one of the best Diving Centers in the Area: Dharavandoo Divers run by Jessica and Virgilio, 2 outstanding diving professionals.

How to describe a fantastic stay? The staff was great, helpful, always present and there for us. Thanks guys!! We advice everybody strongly to have all your meals in Summer Shade and ask for Maldivian food. A culinary journey we did not expect but that gave us experiences never to forget.
This guesthouse/hotel has a top standard in its simple, straightforward manner. A peacful athmosphere, great service (try one of the snorkling trips they offer). We just recommend this place to everybody.
Greatings to you all at Summer Shade from Turid and Rolf

We spent 6 wonderful days in this guest house and do recommend for those who value simplicity. The place is peaceful though close to airport. Its 10 min walk to the beach. Room seevice every day. We asked for plain food and were satisfied: fish, veggies, coconuts. One dinner was even a drum concert Ahmed, the owner, organized for us. Ahmed will take care of any leisure activities you want to experience (add charged for boat trips for snorkeling, other islands n diving), will see you in and off the airport with a driver. There s a designated area for smoking at the backyard and cosy sofa outside to enjoy soft drinks under fruit trees.
We arrived when no Internet was available but Ahmed gave us a local number so we didnt have any shortages all days, except for hairdryer, but on such an island you really dont care. Dharavandhoo is the island to feel how local people live, enjoy ocean and palms. You can easily reach luxury resorts by boat if you want to spend more.

He meets and escorts from the airport, helps with things. Always in free access is a kettle and tea, coffee. A cozy sofa in the yard for a rest. Responsible for all questions. The owner of the hotel organizes excursions and transfers to other islands. I recommend this hotel.

We were a bunch of friends visiting Dharavandoo, to catch the Manta Ray action in Hanifaroo Bay. 7 of us ended up staying here, either on twin sharing basis or single occupancy. Clean rooms, hot water available 24/7. The best part was the breakfast. The manager Shakir( hope I got the name and spelling right), made this simple morning meal an absolute treat! Fruits, eggs, toast and some Maldivian delicacies! How much ever you wanted to eat, it kept coming, no questions asked! A big thank you for that!
Very economical, considering what the others charge around there. It’s right next to the airport, so you can pretty much get off the airplane and walk to Summer Shades! And Dharavandoo being a small island, getting anywhere is just a five minute walk.
Would highly recommend this place to anyone going to Dharavandoo.

My stay in Summer shades was a perfect stay away from home. Our friendly caretaker Shakeer gave us wholesome break fast before we left for the boat everyday. The rooms are clean and spacious .There is a small backyard to rinse your salt water clothes and to dry them. The cozy veranda in the front was a witness to many saltwater stories and lots of laughter. Our stay was pleasant with unlimited cups of tea and water. The local scrumptious dinner was a perfect ending to our adventure trip. Thanks Shakeer for everything.
