Kaani hotel is NOT a 4-star hotel. 2 stars hotel at best.
Staff at the reception and waiters are amazing, friendly and helpful.
Room is old, humid and dirty. Not a cleaning problem, the rooms need to be renovated. We found a COCKROACH at 2AM in the bathroom, the cockroach was coming from the wall frame which was in poor state. (See the picture). We tried to catch the cockroach (not what the type of activity I was planning on doing when coming to the Maldives) but it hid in the wall so we had to wait for it to get out of the wall frame. Disgusting.
The walls are dirty, the facilities are worn out (see attached pictures)
Breakfast & Dinner food are extremely poor (watery juices, recycled food everyday- they use the same food from the day before.) Also, please never eat any meat in Maafushi, it’s all disgusting, it seems frozen (no matter which restaurants you go to).
Maafushi island is extremely dirty. It is a shame to see that hotels do not even care about investing back in the community & island. It seems like the owner just care about profiting to the max, making the biggest margins ever (giving you the same unfrozen food everyday) and not even care to clean up the island or help locals.
It is a very cheap family hotel. All you’ll see are kids running around, screaming, crying etc. Don’t go there if you actually want to relax. Most and foremost, do not go there if you are a couple you will be so disappointed.
Excursions are disappointing
