Amazing place to stay!!!
Great place to stay. The staff are very friendly and cater to any of your needs. They have great live music every night. The private beach is wonderful which is great for swimming, snorkeling and lounging. The rooftop pool offers great views of the ocean. Breakfast every morning starts at 7am and is a great spread. Their dinner buffet has a great spread too! They offer great snorkeling options and also options to visit other resorts for a day. Their pick up and drop off from/to airport is on time and affordable. All in all, an extremely well run hotel which allows you to fully unwind and enjoy the island. Also, it is situated well to explore the rest of the island easily.

Nice stay, I feel when clients book 3 to stay, they should allow 3 bed bedroom. Food need to be a mix of sea food and local food, feel the same food is given daily.

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.

The service from the people who work at this hotel is really great, but the rooms are tiny and poorly insulated. You will hear all of your neighbors. Breakfast on the beach is a nice touch though.
