Nice inn with nice food!
I have booked this inn including breakfast. The room is quite big and it is really clean. They welcome us with cold wet towel and really nice apple juice. We also had our lunch there and it taste good. We also enjoyed the breakfast buffet. Thanks picnic inn for your hard work.

Budget stay
We hanged room after first night as it was adjacent to reception and just a window between us. Very noisy but was fine after that. Economy accommodation but suited our needs. Staff friendly but a little intrusive at tim3/

Nice, but there was no breakfast in last day!!!
This hotel was good - location is fine.. The same breakfast everyday sometimes make it boring - but food quality was good. Aside note - They took out the breakfast in the last day with no reason. I was embarrassed to ask them. I was up at 09 AM - and it should remain to 09:30 AM.

Maafushi dreams
Stayed 4 nights. The hotel was a Maldivian home. Lots of open air spaces within the hotel. It rained a bit, so this was a nice perk. It didn't feel like being cooped up in a square box room. Staff was attentive and easy to work with. Food was good, especially the curry!!! Nice restaurant around the corner, and the lady next door sells original art that she paints. The snorkel instructor was kind and very helpful. Hassan helped me contact my next stay when the ferry cancelled due to weather. He was great and very helpful. Will definitely stay again.

4/10 Fair

Great stay, but staff a little pushy
After such a long flight and a 90 minute ferry ride, I was excited to just relax and get my vacation on. When we checked in the person working the front desk said that they thought we had cancelled our trip. I don't know where that came from. They put us in another hotel for one night because they oversold the property. I didn't mind that, however, we checked back into Picnic Inn the next day and was put into our room. I really liked the ambiance there as it was laid back and relaxed. The people working there were really nice until we were ready to check out. My traveling partner gave some tips to some of the staff working there as we were happy about the services. As he explained that it was from BOTH of us, they looked at me and asked for tips as well. I was puzzled as we just explained that the money was from both of us. One of the workers said, "no, that's his tip. Where's yours?" I was upset as we thought that the tips were more than sufficient. We walked out with a sour taste in our mouth as one of them was getting a little more aggressive about it. I walked away.
