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.

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.

Exceptional 10.0
Everything was good. The hotel was clean, cozy and comfortable and the staff were nice. Just had an issue with the boat transfer charges which they informed us about when we were already at sea and there was clearly a lapse on their end about fully disclosing the amount to be paid but it was settled later on.

Good restaurant, clean brand new room, AC good!
we stayed at this guest house, the location is not ideal for beach access or Maafushi adventures, its towards the back of the island. The Island is however small, so not a big inconvenience. The hotel is very accommodating, the room is super clean. the shower was a dream!! the AC was so good. The only problem i had was with the hardness of the bed. its a rock with a sheet on it. The restaurant Kaalama has amazing food... the pastas especially. Breakfast is not of my liking, mostly basics or traditional Maldivian food and curry. Great stay, wouldnt have stayed anywhere else.
