Upon arrival we were escorted and a staff with cold towels greeted us by the end of the arrival pier.Welcome drinks were served ,pleasant atmosphere at the front desk.Staffs performance were okay ,and quite helpful,adequate skill of English language.
Return Speedboat transfer to Fun Island from Hulhule , is one of the most affordable ,$ 120 per adult return trip .
Bodu Finolhu island size was quite big compared to 2 other resort we stayed at , the Fihalhohi and Biyadhoo.
Stunning view of the white sandy beach and the greenish plantation on the island added its beauty.
The best spot to snorkel is near the arrival pier ,we managed to see an Octopus , and a reef shark about 80 cm long !
Food was quite ok , tried the buffet ,and the beach bar Envashi, food prices were quite affordable ,and the serving time was still acceptable.
Fun island organized Dive trips, Snorkeling trips , Local island Excursion ,Night Fishing ,Big Game Fishing and many more , with an acceptable fee.
Prices at the watersport center are a bit pricey , better bring your own snorkeling gear , fins ,masks and life jackets .We hired a life jacket for 3 hours , costs us $ 9 + 10 % S/C and 8 % GST !This watersport center have a complete line of motorized and non motorized watersports equipment like the Jetski, Catamaran ,Kayaks etc.
The souvenir shop in Fun Island Resort is one of the best , and the price was reasonable compared to other islands, or at the airport.We bought some Tshirts for about $ 18-20 a piece ,later we observed that the same piece was priced about $ 30 at the airport !
At the shallow waters near the beach ,some Heron birds and many baby black tip sharks swimmed gracefully.
Overall ,despite there's a lot of negative reviews ,we still like this place ,and well, its considerably affordable, you get what you paid for.
