Enjoyable stay”

Stayed for 5 nights, and after spending another night on another island, decided to come back to stay 1 more night before heading to airport. Staffs are friendly, and the room are quite clean. For the first 5 nights I stayed in the old building, and thought that the room was not too bad. On the last night, I stayed at the new building and it is totally on another level, matching a 5 star hotel. However, the TV does not really work in both the rooms I stayed. The location is great and is right next to the bikini beach.

Amazing Mae, Rifa, Ron, Arena Souvenir Seller Guy, and the Excursion Habibi”

Would like to commend the place! Overall, you're saving a lot of money by staying in Maafushi. Compared to Boracay of the Philippines, there's more exclusivity feels to it. We did paid not much for the room but it was very amazing! The breakfast is fine, maybe add more variety. I would love to commend Mae, Rifa, Ron, Arena Souvenir Seller Guy, and the Excursion Habibi for taking care of us and ensuring that our trip will be worth it. They're nice and accommodating which is a big factor in enjoying the trip. The Arena Hotels is worth it! The personnel are so kind and loves to take care of people. You will not regret booking here. There's also an amazing infinity pool above.
