The best birthday for my wife
First time in maldives but we never feels like visitor. Staff are very friendly and helpful. Thanks to Ibrahim, arshad and ali. Our personalised candle light birthday dinner on the quite beach was very memorable time and my wife loves it so much. The night fishing, snorkling, picnic at sandbanks, dive with turtle are just some of the activities you can do there and there are lot more to do. Don't forget to visit 5 start private island..it's worth it. izad and pnut, MALAYSIA

A perfect guesthouse in Maaafushi
From the moment you step off the ferry you are looked after. Nothing is too much trouble for the staff. The guesthouse has a wonderful feeling. It's convently located near bikini beach and nearby restaurants. Think it's the best guesthouse on Maafushi.

Clean, nice staff, great excursion, great value fo
Great place to stay indeed! We stayed there for 2 nights and had to say the staff there were super nice! We spent time doing most of the excursions there and felt regretless about our decisions. The price were very reasonable and we had many fun trips out to the ocean, eg. snorkelling, watching dolphins, turtles. They let you borrow the snorkelling kit free of charge (eg. Life vest, mask, swim fins, etc) We later spent another 2 nights at 4-star resort and felt grateful because the price there was almost tripled! The room was clean, and AC worked fine. Wifi was great both in and outside the room. Food was good, and reasonable. You can borrow bicycles (again, free of charge!) to explore the island. Definitely, we will come back again to Maldives and Stingray would be our first choice!

I wish I could rate more than 5 stars!
My brother and I stayed in Stingray Beach Inn for 3 nights, our experience was superb! Room was clean, big enough for 2 of us, the surrounding area was also clean, location of the hotel was around 5 minutes walking from where the speed boat dropped us. The Maafushi islands itself was already good. The staff in Stingray beach inn were lovely, helpful, approachable! We were taken care so well. Hotel had several of great activities, snorkeling, islands tour, sunset fishing, water sports etc. Stingray Beach Inn is recommended for people who like to have a nice, cozy hotel with friendly staff, nothing else I could say but my next visit in Maldives would be the same hotel!! Thank you for making our stay feel like home.

After reading many reviews on travel websites, Sting Ray turned out be highly rated and recommended by almost all travelers. However, during my recent booking with Sting Ray Beach Inn on 24-27 March 2016 I was informed upon arrival that the rooms have been overbooked and there will be no vacancy for the rest of the weekend. We were downgraded to a different hotel on far side of the island next to the prison and garbage. (Holiday Lodge). Also the manager did not have the basic courtesy to come up and tell us himself of the situation. We were given absolutely NO option as we could not leave the island until our flight 3 days later. The other hotel being so far from the beach, we had to walk 1.5 to 2km in scorching sun, every time we had to have a meal or go to beach. I cannot tell you the kind of misery this put us through. I really did not expect such ghastly attitude from Sting Ray. It is totally unacceptable and I know it will not bother them as they can afford simply ignore one disgruntled guest for the sake of 100 happy ones. I could have fought with them there in front of all guests but I did not want to spoil my mood for 3 days. Thanks for nothing STINK Ray!!

Great hotel

Great service, nice staff, great location
I had a good time at Stingray Beach inn. I loved de ambiance of the hotel, it is nice and cozy. They make your bed everyday and you'll get clean beach and shower towels. The only hotel in Sri Lanka and Maldives that had that service. Staff was very friendly and will do anything for you when you are in trouble. We loved it. The only downside where the mosquitos, but I could live with it. Just wear a long pants, enought mosquito repellant and it's not so bad. They have also nice pets, like a parrot and kittens. You can lent a beachbed and snorkelgear for free.

Dissapointed but Happy! ☺️

The owner (Ibrahim) was very helpful, food are nice and close to the private beach
We did not stay at Stingray Beach Inn as there is a technical error with the room and I think it is overbooked. We are depressed as this is our honeymoon and we wanted the best of everything. And it was not a good start for our honeymoon holiday. But, the owner (Ibrahim) was a very nice guy. He try very hard to place us to different room at different hotels. It was hectic & tiring for three hours looking for the best room for our honeymoon and finally we settled for Crystal Sand Hotel. On top of that, we got a free night fishing trip for the first night and my wife caught the biggest bat fish and Stingray Beach Inn cook the fish for our dinner that night. Overall, even though we did not have the chance to stay in Stingray Beach Inn, but we are welcome to use all the facilities and we did come back for dinner at the inn as the foods are good. I personally love the devilled octopus from the menu. Thanks Ibrahim for all the help, and may Allah bless you always!
