“Real Maldives”
Reviewed 13 January 2013

If you are looking for the real maldives, this is the place to be!

Guraidhoo: 2000 habitant, 1 mental hospital, 2 mosques, 1 football filed, 1 harbour, 1 restaurant bar, 2 beaches ( no bikini ) 1 small island, (sea walk close, yes bikini ) many souvenir shops. The island is nice and "under construction-cleaning". The beaches are not "exceptional" but the surrounding are wonderful!
The peoples are very nice and welcoming, the food is very good!

The IFJA INN:
is a 2 floors building close to the sea. The rooms are big and very clean. It have also a big roof terrace where they serve breakfasts, dinners and you can relax...

The staff:
We felt all the time not like turists but part of the clan! We have been out every day, visiting picnic islands, resort, snorkeling, fishing, dolphin safari, experienced Maldivian life moments and traditional parties! A big thank to everyone: Tj, Uch, Sakana, Jamaal, Pelé, Ulav (sorry if I misspellend some nickname or forgot someone!
A special thanks to Tj: our guide, dhivehi teacher and water sport instructor!

Conclusion:
We suggest to experiment the island life, organize as many excursions as you can, enjoy the sun, the sea and its corals and fishes ( in 5 days we saw: dolphins, Sting Rays, Eagle rays, Mantas, octopus, Murenas, turtles, thousand reef fishes)

We will back soon!
Dhanee.
Shukuriyaa!!

Room Tip: (on the 2th floor they have windows to see the sunset)

We (4 experienced divers from Austria) did a fantastic diving trip to Ifja-Inn situated at the island Guraidhoo. The hard facts of the hotel are listed anyway, but we have to mention some certain details.

The diving: Each Trip started from the beach but the maximum travelling time was about 20 minutes. The trips to several outstanding diving spots were lead by helpful and skillful diveguides. Furthermore the diving staff made a point of diving safe and relaxed, we enjoyed very much. No stress occured at any time.

The personnel: The staff was very busy, polite as well as friendly at any time. Excellent service! Thank you!

The food: We were impressed of the amazing Maldivian food.The staff tried to meet our needs in every way, and they succeeded.

Summing up: Thanks for the perfect holiday. We ´ll come back!
