Good stay in economical place

Price, room size, location
The room was nice and cool, with great air conditioning and very comfortable bed. The bathroom was very clean, and with good shower pressure. The only slight disappointment was the repetitive breakfast of chicken hot dogs and boiled or scrambled eggs, and chapatti with roti - and once with bad mildew bread. The activities offered were well priced; they also arranged for a speed boat transfer to the airport, for $100 USD for the cost of there boat which was also very reasonable.

Friendly staff, clean room and value for money

staff, cleanliness, value for money
Really value for money! Room is very clean and complete with almost everything that you will be needed (towel, body/hair shampoo, lockable cupboard, hair dryer, TV, cloth hanger, air-conditional). Breakfast is included, not many choices but taste good. Daily housekeeping is a plus point, as you will tends to bring sands into the room. TV has a lot channel including a pure movie channel and a pure MTV channel, although display a bit blur.

Awesome - if only there could be a better word

People, Location, Smiles !
We got upgraded to Arena beach resort. So the review really is for the Beach Lodge. We werent really sure of what we would do on a trip to Maldives since it was a last moment plan. And it was a pleasure from the moment we landed. Juman - gem of a person, was there to receive us at the airport. They had clubbed us on the speedboat with another person - who was there on her 3rd or 4th trip in as many months. By the end of the trip, we knew why someone would come back again and again. We got upgraded to a much better Arena Beach resort, into a sea facing room. Musa helped us with all the informatin that we needed to plan our excursions, never pushing us to decide right at the moment and giving us all the flexibility that we would ever imagine. The next day was even better with us getting upgraded to the best room in 'Mafushi', the terrace room at the hotel. Everything was great about the place. The people, even the housekeeping boys were always all smiles and willing to do anything to make you happy. I guess it is Juman's great attitude that rubs on to the others in his team. We had great time bonding with our co-passengers on the fishing trip, which was fun as well. Thanks Juman and team for the lovely time. You are possibly the kindest souls on earth.

Relaxing stay at an absolute Paradise Island!

1. Price, very affordable! 2. Nice and welcoming staff, 3. Location
Our stay in Arena Lodge was very relaxing and memorable. We enjoyed every minute of it. Arena Lodge is part of a larger Arena hotel chain in Maafushi and therefore we had the luxury of using the services of other Arena hotels as well such as day trips etc. Breakfast was served every morning (except on Friday) and it was simple but nutritious and good. Staff was helpful and very welcoming, always willing to help! Arena Logde offered us everything that we wanted from the hotel, that is a bed, a shower and aircon. If you are looking for luxury, then head straight to resort islands, however for us backpackers the hotel was more than asked for.

Value for money holiday

Cleanliness, friendly staff and spacious room.
This hotel is located 10 mins from the beach. The staff are very friendly and the room has everything you need (There is no hairdryer in my room but I did not need one). Many TV channels with various languages, good airconditioning, a room safe, mini bar, hot water shower and comfortable beds. Breakfast is buffet style, limited but adequate. A lot of houseflies in the dining area so it can be quite a bother to eat there. Staff comes to pick you up from the ferry terminal and walk you to the hotel and vice versa. They are conversant in English and very pleasant and helpful. We booked an excursion with the affiliated hotel, Arena Beach and had a bad experience. They moved our excursion from 9am to 2pm without prior notice. We were informed only on arrival at meet up point at 8.30am that our excursion has been moved. The snorkeling guide Ali ensured us he will take us out personally at 2pm. At 1.45pm reception came to rush us to the jetty saying that the guide was waiting for us at the jetty. When we arrived at the jetty, Ali was not there. Someone else waved us to the boat and asked us to get onboard. Again, no prior notice of change of guide. This new guide could not explain to us the change (not sure if he's not conversant in English or did not know how to handle an irrate customer), he called Ali who told us on the phone that he's too busy to come. Again, change without prior notice. We refused to go with the new guide. Ali came by to the hotel to apologise later. But it is a wasted day for us.
