4/10 Fair

We arrived to Maafushi at 11pm and had to wait 40minutes for our room to be prepared. We then requested for a late check out as our boat wasn't until the afternoon but this wasn't accepted. We found it strange that they asked guests to check out at noon but our room wasn’t ready at 11pm. We arrive to our room to find out that our hotel has another hotel being constructed next to it (literally arms distance between the 2 walls). Nowhere was it mentioned on the website that there is ongoing construction. Of course noises of drilling and hammering started every day at 7am and continued throughout the day making it very difficult to get good sleep. Wifi was poor and very slow. Phone in the room did not dial so any queries we had to physically go down and ask. Infinity rooftop swimming pool was a very small area. Nice view but water was freezing cold. Staff were very friendly and courteous.

6/10 Good

Pros - [ ] Beautiful beach right out front of the hotel with access to beach, sun loungers and umbrella - [ ] Can order non alcoholic drinks at the beach. Very delicious - [ ] The view from the room is unmatched - [ ] Bed is comfortable - [ ] The room is clean but it is starting to wear. Especially the washroom - [ ] The housekeeping is friendly, helpful and efficient - [ ] The aircon works well - [ ] They offer two small water bottles for free per day Cons - [ ] Not worth 600$ a night - [ ] The power went out, along with wifi - [ ] The lifts stopped working for a day which is a hassle with bags & a room on the 5th floor - [ ] Check in staff are inefficient and incompetent - [ ] It took us about 5.5 hours, 6 staff and several follow ups to get a working room key to access our room - [ ] Staff thought it was funny and mocked us as we walked past the second hotel - [ ] Watch your final bill for add ons. They tried to sneak in $50 usd/ticket gala dinner tickets without telling us that it was a paid dinner. We didn’t go to the dinner and they still put it on our bill. - [ ] They added two speedboat tickets without us asking even though we booked it at a kiosk down the road - [ ] Paying was a hassle as they don’t have a working card machine in the hotel - [ ] They left with our passports without an explanation and we had to insist to get them back - [ ] After being on the beach for about an hour, we were asked to leave and go to the pool
