We have stated at Madoogali no less than four times. It is a wonderful island if you are looking for somewhere to get away from it all. It is not fancy but there are around 56 stand-alone bungalows, No over the water bungalows so the beautiful reef is has not been ruined. Snorkelling is fantastic only a few meters from...

I was with my family in december during the xmas period. The rooms were clean but a bit run down due to lack of proper maintenance. Was in room 22 and water leaked into the room during rains. Room boy service was excellent. Food was very basic with a small buffet, but the waiters and kitchen was good enough to...

We went here for our honeymoon, because we were looking for something mid-range. This one comes with quiet bungalows on the beach, none of the type that juts into the sea. It's a short flight away from Male airport via their plane taxis. The island is small enough to walk around in an hour, and the buffet is nice. The...

We visited Madoogali begin October 2013. We really enjoyed our stay at Madoogali. Accomodation is clean and sufficient, although not luxurious. Food at the restaurant is OK. We just stayed for a couple of days, and can imagine the served food may become a bit monotone if staying for a week or 2 weeks, but for shorter trips surely not...

Beautiful island with well maintained vegetation and very relaxing atmosphere. The house reef is outstanding and this island is a true high light for snorkeling and diving. No man made walls or water bungalows obstruct the authentic island feeling. Rooms are spacious, clean and simple. Rooms have good location and beach access with maybe the exception of the rooms with...

I would not recommend this island for honeymooners but it is a great place for travelling with friends / family. The snorkeling is excellent. You will see plenty of wildlife, some small and harmless white tip sharks, turtles, rays, ... The diving centre is OK. Equipment could be better. Staff is great like every staff on this island btw. But...

“I think room 29 is one of the best, but the sand does move around the island so this can change.”

“Before the trip we wrote an e-mail to the staff asking to keep a room 10 to 39 for us as we have heard that it is a better side of the island. Our wish was well-noted and we got a bungalow n 29 which i still believe is the best on the island - the biggest sand shore and a wonderful romantic seclusion.”
