Out of the world experience at reasonable prices. Food at resort is great. Service is outstanding. Clean pool, room and beaches. Very quite island with clear blue water. This is one of my favourite places in Maldives. Recommended

I have mixed feeling about the hotel. Its a low budget resort with very minimal amenities. Very limited choices in breakfast....not much options are available for entertainment. Though some water sports are there...on the other side staff was very help full....they changed our room immediately when we complained about the AC. The manager listened to our problems during the day...

Pros: The resort is good, the sand is white and water is blue. Staff is polite and helpful. Room was good and clean. Coffee house is at amazing spot and one must have coffee there in the evening. Sea around is full of beautiful fish. Food is amazing and has a good variety. Cons: Pool is very small but who...

This was our last minute honeymoon booking for a very short period - the main reason was to get away from the routine and relax for a couple of days. This was also our first resort holiday and it was a reasonably good experience. The rooms were not as clean as one would expect and the WC stopped working on...

We made a last minute (at the Male Airport) decision to stay at this hotel based on a kiosk sales rep. It was one of the cheaper island hotels. $180/pp/do + $160 boat transport (do not book hotels @ the last minute). By regular boat (45 min.) by speadboat (18 min.). The hotel was just OK. A typical 3-star. The...

My name is Mourice Nissan and on april 3 till April 8 me and my wife stayed at Giravaru Island Resort. As soon as we get there on April 3rd the hotel is not worthy to be called a "hotel". The place is facing a massive renovation starting May 1st 2008 and therefore it doesn't even present on the resorts...

The moment you reach theGiravuru Resort you shall be welcomed with a warm and friendly staff. If you are looking for a family type environment; simplicity; relaxation; flavour of the local taste;warm and cozy rooms then Giravuru is the place to be. An island maybe less than a kilometre makes you feel that you are really in the middle of...

You won't find a cheaper hotel in the Maldives... and you get what you pay for. Don't be afraid to stay here, but know what you're getting. An earlier, extremely negative review probably had expectations that were too high for this modest 2-star / 3-star hotel. Pro's: You're in the Maldives. That means gorgeous white sand, crystal clear water, and...
