Could not ask for a better place to stay!

Great location with very friendly and helpful staff. Loved the food, the diving and the island as a whole and can't wait to go back! Expert use of drone means I didn't miss anything and was consistently going on the best dives every day. Probably the best place you can book for Manta! Even house reef is great for snorkelling! 10/10 would go again
Date of stay: September 2018
Room Tip: Would recommend beach side 1st floor.

Aveyla Manta Village is cooperated with Liquid Salt Divers, if you would love to watch manta, this is the place to stay because everyday dive crew will watch manta condition by drone and when there are manta, they call up everybody to go immediately ! Before manta goes away! The room is clean and good enough for me as my purpose is for diving/ snorkelling not to stay inside the hotel. You can relax and enjoy the beach. There are not many restaurants around, so I've took the package (details in their website) which much cheaper.

First time staying in Maldives local Island and Dharavandhoo is our choices. Hanifaru Bay is our main visit and we chose Aveyla Manta Village after googling and found out they have drone to check it out everyday. We booked directly with the hotel and a bit slow in process. When we reached the hotel we exactly understand why. Only one reception guys who do everything, do the booking, reply email, pick us up at the airport, show us the room and explained everything we need to know. So sorry about complaining while we made a reservations. Upon other reviews mentioned about deposits that did not take out from the invoice. My one also but they are just mistake not in tend to do this believe me. Just be aware everywhere you go it's our responsibility to check everything before made a payment. Also other two guys who took us to Hanifaru Bay trip they were nice and helpful I couldn't remember their names but these two are there almost twenty four hours. It worth our money but please don't expect luxury Maldives things from here. But if you love beach and snorkelling you won't be disappointed. House Reef is good, saw turtles, fishes and a group of dolphins pass the hotel as well. Don't expect much from them but good enough for the price, quality and friendly service. It look like you stay in one of your friends house. Forgot to say the room is nice, clean and big enough for three adults in one room so comfortable bed. Thank you everyone from Aveyla Manta Village for Manta snorkelling experience.

We started off the trip with a lovely welcome at the reception with delicious mango juice and refreshing towels to cool us down. From then on our holiday was action packed with numerous exciting snorkel trips with the mantas. Also learning to dive with extremely talented dive masters and boat crew who made everything feel so special. Great food and ocean view rooms that never tired. Really recommend this homily hotel and dive school.

Just came back from 2 weeks of heaven at Aveyla Manta Village. My wife and I have 2 young children who absolutely loved this holiday and are convinced they want to live on Dharavandhoo. The diving was superb as well as the snorkeling so whatever your preference you will not be disappointed. We saw lots of Manta Rays, Sharks and even came close to a Hump Back Whale sighting. The knowledge and awareness of the boat crew and diving staff is what made the difference from the diving being good to making it superb. The hotel staff are incredible and always have a smile on their faces no matter how large or small your request. I cant recommend this Guesthouse enough. We look forward to coming back next year.
