The best place near the beach

friendly staff, location, safe
I was a female independent traveler and had a wonderful time at Whiteshell beach hotel, Maafushi island. It has the best location, you can hear waves and birds right in front of your room. Also, you can go to the beach whenever you want because it has the crystal clear bluey green beach right in front of the hotel. The room was soooo cozy and comfortable like my own room, it was so hard to leave the room on the last day. :-*( There were some ants though, but they didnt bother me at all. Also, the staff were so friendly like my own friends and i had such a good time with even though i was alone. :) There were also a variety of activities such as a night fishing(they made me wonderful dinner the the fish), snorkeling, and island tours, etc. You can just sigh up for the activities a night before. Or if its not possible, you can try different places, never hard. I has a wonderful dreamy days in Whiteshell beach hotel and Maafushi. I just want to visit there again! If you're planning to visit there, do not have to hesitate! Just go for it! :)

Best location on Maafushi Island but quite ooold

Location, Staff, Excursion
Given the age of the hotel and its price, I would opt for the Arena Beach Hotel which is new, modern looking and just beside WhiteShell. However, other than the old hardware, we are satisfied with everything else. The people there are nice and accommodating; the excursion prices are good; and the location is just perfect.

Good location on Maafushi

Location and access to the beach, dining options on the island and activities
My feedback is basically on the staff, who are very patient and courteous. There was a last minute change on my booking and I was provided with an option that I accepted and the hotel was very good as well. Hence, my feedback is restricted to the staff at the WhiteShell beach hotel, and not of the stay at the hotel in itself. The location of the whiteshell beach hotel is very ideal, as it sits right in front of the private beach, and the island does not have a beach on all sides. Hence, living at whiteshell comes with an added attraction. Besides, the hotel itself has a lot of tourist activities that happen on a daily basis and the staff provide all required support for tourists to have a good time during their visit to Maafushi.

Perfect as usual

Location and staff
This was the second time we stayed at Whiteshell. The first time Maafushi was a sleepy little village with few tourists, now it is buzzing with activity. It is good to see that Whiteshell hasn't lost its original charm and character. Lovely friendly staff, clean rooms and good breakfast. Location is the best in Maafushi as it is closest of all hotels to the beach. We'll come back for a third time.
