Arena Beach Hotel, Maafushi
Almost excellent
Excellent location right on beach. Excellent price, good food. Only complaint was that A/C crapped out on the first night though.

our trip on Maafushi & Arena beach hotel.
We stayed for 3 nights in Arena Beach Hotel in mid-Nov 2018. We were assigned a room in a new building. Furniture and fittings were all new. Wifi worked well and there were 4 USB sockets for charging electronic devices. The hotel has a private beach. Wave condition was OK for swimming but the sea floor is paved with broken coral chips and has a lot of submerged rocks covered with shells. Walking and wading in water is a dangerous activity as the sole can get cuts. The hotel offered fishing & snorkeling for guests. We joined a sunset fishing program. We caught several fish and brought them back to hotel for dinner. Hotel staff are friendly and helpful. Our flight left Male at 10:45 pm. We were allowed late checkout until 3 pm. Maafushi is a small island. There are not much things one can do there. The hotel has a restaurant and there some small restaurants nearby providing snacks and pizza. Prices are reasonable.
