"Average place - but only if you don't take the food"

The Guraidhoo Corner guesthouse offers limited options, so you feel trapped and sometimes have to pay resort prices for non-resort service.

The Guesthouse: the Guraidhoo Corner is small with only 4 rooms. It offers the basic amenities and is most importantly clean. The management changed recently and the new management's inexperience is evident. However they are eager to please and this makes up for their shortcomings.

Their eagerness to please can be quite uncomfortable at times. On the first night, two groups of owners came to check on the place, standing over us and watching us as we had our dinner. It wasn't pleasant at all so we quickly gobbled our food and retired to our rooms.

The management was at first quite pushy about us eating in the guest house, but when we insisted on eating elsewhere, they did not bother us anymore.

The food was expensive, around US$15 for a plate of spaghetti. The setting wasn't great- it was the same table for gatherings, meetings and meals; and the food was below average. However, the Maldivian tuna soup was good.

The rooms were clean, air-conditioned and had the basic amenities. However they only provided bed covers to be used as blankets. We found the bed covers itchy and we could not sleep well.

The Island: There is little to do on the island. There is no house reef and you would have to take a boat out to do decent snorkeling. There are numerous souvenir shops and sundry shops around the island, but you will cover them all quite quickly.

If you want to go diving, the owner of Ifja Inn (Mr. Ibrahim) runs his own dive operation. He charges US$98 per dive (includes all equipment and dhoni). We felt that this was very expensive as Male dive shops charge US$60 per dive only. But as we were in Guraidhoo and they were the only dive operation around, we had no choice and had to pay resort prices for it.

Ibrahim is very familiar with the Guraidhoo dive sites and a very experienced diver. His operation is not PADI accredited nor does he have a proper shop but he provides decent equipment and knows where to go to find the things you want to see. As long as you are willing to pay the resort-level prices, you won't be disappointed. We had a very good experience with him and the dives were safe and enjoyable. We saw a wide variety of marine life - turtles, sharks, a napoleon and a wide variety of fish and corals.

For food, we found a comfortable place that served great food at decent prices - Peach Grill. It is located towards the north-east corner of the island. It's a little hard to find, but ask around and the friendly locals will show you the way. Prices range from US$3-6 for a meal.
