Dhonveli View
Ranked #46 of 53 Maafushi Island B&B and Inns
Reviewed 20 February 2014

We originally booked four rooms, but for reasons unknown to us initially three rooms were moved to a new guesthouse adjacent and the fourth room moved the following day. This guesthouse is located as close to the harbor as possible. The rooms are very clean, simple, and comfortable. All dealings were still conducted with Dhonvelli view, and the management was absolutely wonderful. We had only two dinners at the guesthouse, the first was prompt and tasty. The menu is the same as other restaurants not he island. The food we received the second meal took several hours, and was actually from a restaurant a couple of blocks away. As a caution, with regard to the the boat transfer from Male to Maafushi, we were not met by the transfer agent and had to search for the transfer agent ourselves. Make sure you communicate that you want the agent to greet at exit door of the arrival gate.

We booked this room and put up a request to have an early check-in. We arrived at Dhovenli before 11am and the receptionist welcomed us with big smile and showed us to our big and clean room=) we loved the room so much and another plus point is it is situated right in front of the ferry jetty. We will stay again ^^

We enjoyed our stay very much from Sep.5 to Sep 10 for 5 nights. My big family took part in some wonderful tours and we like them. The rooms are clean and the food is good. My English
is not good enough though the housekeeper helped us a lot for the exploration. I will recommend the nice cosy place for my friends.

One of the few hotels on the public island of Maafuushi. Best price!
You can go around the island in 30-45 mins, so location of hotel is not very important.
2 mins from harbor, 5-7 mins to beach.

Super breakfasts! But be prepared to have fight with flies from time to time, as most tables are outside. Small clean rooms. Comfortable beds, A/C of course. Bathroom.

A lot of restaurants with tasty food for much better price than on resort islands.

Spent there some days - great!

Room Tip: Only six rooms. Some of them with the windows to the reception. No matter - don't stay in the ro...

A good location directly on the beach, cosy place on the beach, they have also a terrace with sea view.
We visited the place twice, but the food was nothing special. Not spicy, not bad and not good, average, just this kind of experience that you will not warmly recommend.

We stayed here for 3 nights and had a great time. The hotel is situated near the beach which offered spectacular view. The food including the complimentary maldivian breakfast was awesome. The staff was friendly and gave us our peace especially when you need it. I will recommend this place to everyone.
