a decent place for budget traveller, however i have to say almost all the guesthouse in maafushi is really nice n clean. they do housekeeping almost everyday. however dont expect that is two bottled water awaits u everyday. u have to buy with just USD 1 for 500ml and USD 2 for 1500ml. in the meantime Maafushi is a local island so its not so well kept and the beach is not so nice as other do. Maafushi dont have alcohol and u might buy from a boat that is parking near jetty (ask around^.^).
there is a staff who named Jowel is really helpful. he will recommend any places that you would like to go. they provide speedboat transfer (airport) USD 178 for day and USD 200 for night. if u would like to go for excursions take up islands like Filahalhohi is a really nice island which have house reef and the dolphins would be somewhere there.( boat transfer to island around USD10-25 /pax entrance for island fihalhohi USD 25 lunch buffet USD 24). you might also vist biyadhoo island, which you might see sting ray, eagle ray, black tip shark, octopus, turtles and napoleon fish. this island have spa which cost USD 45 for early bird. (Biyandhoo transfer USD 8-15 entrance USD 30) meanwhile if u would like to try a luxury resort, try cocoa island boat transfer US10-20 entrance USD 150 includes light lunch and massage by shambala. A desert island (Picnic Island) is worth visit for sit down relax walkaround the beach but not snorkeling. diving trip and night fishing is provided as well, night fishing the fish that you caught is for barbeque and its free of charge for this service.
