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.

This was our first visit to Maldives. The experience was really something else. Hotel was very clean and staff very polite. The location on the beachfront makes it ideal.

A lovely stay in Maafushi
We had the most amazing trip, every single member of staff made our trip so memorable! Big shout out to Moosa and Zette for making sure all of our booked trips were incredible - such great staff! The hotel is nice, with a fabulous location on the beach. We loved our 5 night stay here!

Great island stay in a local island!!
The whole stay there was just amazing! All the staff were so nice and the location of the hotel is perfect! The island is good for family with small children as well. The kayak rental is free for the hotel guests ;)

Unsatisfactory stay at Grand Deluxe Penthouse
I have made this reservation on the Grand Deluxe Penthouse, in high anticipation of a relaxing "vacation" stay with a large balcony looking out to the sea. The overall experience is a great letdown. There is construction work which is just next to the hotel and being in a Islamic country, we cannot be wearing scantily and sitting by the balcony while the construction workers are just working less than 5 meters away in distance. The Hotel staff proudly claims that its Grand Deluxe Penthouse has "private" access but there are pairs of eyes watching you when you are on the balcony. There is no lift access to this Penthouse on level 4. This Penthouse is not on card access but key. The Air-conditioner compressors are just next to the door and that makes the balcony area hot. Being on the top of the roof, the hot afternoon sun is heating up the room even with the Air-conditioner on, and the tap water is hot as the water tank is also being heated up. The room decor and overall cleanliness are worse than its lower room category "Ocean-View" room which I had stayed. We couldn't stay any longer and requested to downgrade to Sea-view room without refund. The sea-view room is slightly better than the Grand Deluxe Penthouse but still loses out to the its Ocean View room - the balcony access is directly above the Barbeque area where the cafe serves buffet dinner every evening. So, your laundry gets the BBQ smell too. Unsatisfactory stay at Penthouse :-(
