    Would be great if the restaurant staff can share with customers the portion if the dishes. We, 2 persons, ordered steam fish the portion is quite big and is sufficient for 4 people.

    The room was clean and big, but the small balcony was facing the cafeteria not the sea, so I did not use it. The service in the cafeteria is just OK and no variety in the food, almost the same food every day

    Unpleasant services rendered.

    Generally the facilities were OK if all are in good working condition. During our stay the water heater was down & the satellite TV was down for half a day due to light rain. Reception info was not updated as we were sent to catch a public ferry at 10am, but it never arrived. We had to take a speed boat after waiting for 3 hours under the hot sun.

    I loved the condition of the property. It’s fairly new. Most of the staff are very friendly and accommodating. I didn’t like the food, there is this Ghee like spice or taste that they use in almost all of the food they cook. The breakfast wasn’t that nice, but the basics were there. But there needs to be creativity on the buffet menu for breakfast. Their menu is a bit on the high side.

    Affordable, good service!

    A nice place to stay. Service is good! It's not in the main area, but the island is small, so you can walk there in 5 minutes. It's on the quieter side of the island, and near the local beach. Breakfast was a good variety as well!

    Excellent once you arrive.

    Nice hotel with a good restaurant (set operating hours). Very helpful in arranging tours. Good atmosphere. Only negative was that communication with the hotel before arrival was very difficult. Trying to arrange a transfer before arrival was met with extremely slow email response time (2 days on average) and unanswered phone calls. In the end it is easier just to arrive and take one of the shuttles on your own (no issue unless you're arriving outside shuttle hours - then good luck and attempt communication well in advance).

    Happy times @ Velana Blu

    We stayed in Velana Blu for 4 days and 3 nights and my experience there was nothing short of amazing . We booked the sea view room and thoroughly enjoyed the sunrise and clicked some great pics . It is very calm at all times and the person who received us was Amaan . He was helpful and very friendly. We had breakfast at hotel Kalaama and it was pretty decent buffet . Highly recommended by me.

  • 4.0.Fair

    Stayed in Seaview room. Nice view from the balcony. I really like the bathroom layout. Room facilities were also good, but not sound proof. The guests next door laughed at the sound of my fart. I can also hear people walking and talking in front of my room. Now the disappointing part. The staffs were not friendly. My wife and I stayed at 3 different hotels in Maafushi, so we made some comparison, and you better trust us. They never greet us with a smile. We requested late check out earlier, but then been told that there will be another guest coming in. Not a problem. But unlike the other 2 hotels, somehow I feel unwelcome here. No smile, no greetings. Requested an iron, it never came Overall, if you are looking for nice view and facilities, this might be a wise choice. But don't expect too much for their customer service.
