Gunbaru Inn exceeded all our expectations.
When we arrived, we were given a fresh coconut drink that was beyond refreshing after an afternoon public ferry ride to Ukulhas from Male'. Checking in was a breeze--all the staff were expecting us and they already knew our names before we even introduced ourselves. :-)
We were greeted by the guest relations manager, who was very thorough in discussing all their available excursions and trips for their hotel guests. He was also kind enough to lead us to our room, and also showed us how to make use of the different features of the room.
The rooms are well-furnished, spacious, always kept clean by the lovely staff, and the bathrooms were clean. Their rooms are like those that you can find at a 5-star hotel, if not better.
The bed was very comfortable, and my boyfriend and I were guaranteed a restful sleep each night with their ultra soft pillows. There were also plenty of electronic sockets--you wouldn't have a problem charging your electronic devices. Pretty cool lights, too! It seriously felt like a 5-star hotel room.
The food was excellent as well and the breakfast is simple but I looked forward to it every morning because it was quite tasty (especially the tuna!) and is enough to get us started each morning before we go on our excursions.
The staff was warm and friendly. They were always ready to answer all our questions, making sure that we felt comfortable all throughout our stay, and their wide array of activities deserve a big kudos!
This is the BEST place to stay in--you will get a 5-star hotel treatment at a very affordable price!
I LOVED IT!!! THANK YOU SO MUCH!
