Local island haven

Simple hotel, not 4*
We went here for the second leg of our honeymoon after staying in a beautiful resort as we wanted to experience the local island in Maldives. The manager tried to give us a room with no view at the back of the hotel even though I specifically had booked a seaview, after complaining, we were moved for the rest of our 3 nights - sea view was much better. The hotel was clean and simple. I would question the 4* rating of the hotel as there are not any facilities in the hotel. Personally wouldn't return as the hotel was still pricey given the simple facilities. The island was great if you wanted to use it as a base for diving, which is what we did.

Stay at Crystal
The hotel is conveniently located ; the manager - Jack is very helpful . Staff like Imon; Murtaza Hossain ; Rabbi ; Jerry are excellent. Food is ordinary and there are options around; so don't go for an all inclusive . We had booked in a Beach View room; but there was no water in the toilet in it (106 ). When complained , the receptionist offered to give a down graded room stating no other BW rooms are available.. that was very disappointing and I asked them to refund my money .. Jak intervened and gave us an upgraded room - Ocean View - much appreciated. Infact dont book a BV ...its dingy ; if you are looking for one might as well go for OV

Good hotel for vacation
The hotel is ok for the price. The service is not awesome, but not mediocre either. It's clean and room service is available whenever you need it. The manager Jack was really awesome. He provided us with an awesome experience. He even let us check in at 12:00 am. He is really what a manager should be. Definitely visit here if you are taking a vacation. it will be worth it. Thanks Jack!!!

Relaxed and friendly Island paradise
We spent 3 days at Crystal Sands on our way home after a month travelling and really appreciated the relaxed friendly atmosphere at this small hotel. The room was a bit small for 3 but we loved the balcony overlooking the water and being only across the road from the harbour and 2 min from the small sheltered beach made it the perfect location for day tripping as well as relaxing on the island. This is not the island for you if you want gourmet dining but we ate fresh seafood by candlelight on the beach and there are many local restaurants to choose from and several small supermarkets for everyday purchases as well as trinkets and souvenirs . Day tripping is easy with us choosing the hotel options as they were well priced and convenient. Staying on Malfoushi is a good way to support the local economy and get an idea how locals inthe Maldives spend the day. It is a beautiful place and well worth the visit even on a budget.

Almost perfect! Jack is awesome!
Everything here is excellent. Room, service, environment, excursions, name it... Super 2 thumbs up to Jack who has been superbly awesome and helpful from the 1st to the last minute. Very accommodating in answering all my questions prior to arriving in Maldives. Personalized service to us and will go all the way to ensure everything goes smooth as requested. Even went all the way to providing us a room even after checking out already to rest for an hour and shower, after our excursion and moving to another island... With all these, he never asked for anything in return. Jack is an asset to this hotel! We will be back soon...
