Well spent holiday”
Breakfast lack of choices. But the room is very clean and they even upgrade my deluxe room to be grand deluxe complimentary with a very good view in the balcon. this hotel definitely worth for money. I even made friend with one of their restaurant staff called Brij. He is very nice. Definitely will come back here when staying at Maafushi

Great Stay here! ”
Sure you'll love to stay here. The staffs were very nice, friendly, & accommodating esp JERRY, MICRON, BRIJ. The location is great, bikini beach is just in front of the hotel. Food was great, buffet breakfast, buffet dinner will cost USD12++ excluding drinks with live music if it's not raining. Accommodation: they even allow us to extend our check-out time (instead of 12noon). They clean the room everyday. Excursions: u can request & they will arrange for u Airport transfer: by request - will cost $150 private speedboat, if shared its $25/pax Highly Recommended! 👍🏻👍🏻

Used to be good, now run-down”
This is the run-down hotel. It is our second visit and not impressed this time. Tours were offered at higher prices than other places. Credit cards accepted wit surcharges. Favored by many Chinese tourists. Breakfast staffs were unattentive and restaurant very crowded. No elevators. Toilet next to the bed with sliding glass door, very uncomfortable.

Very good”
Definitely the place to be in when in Maldives on shoestring budget holiday. We were truly amazed by the clean and well-renovated hotel room. However, we were disappointed with the excursion services. We did not manage to go on some activities as the minimum of 4 pax cannot be met. We felt that more could have been done to manage/plan the activities (e.g. pre-allocation of tour group activities, reduced number of activities, etc). This would give better indication which are the activities that can likely to be carried out instead of waiting till the eleventh hour for the confirmation and being left with no plans but to hang around the hotel. For us, this would be an important consideration for future bookings in Maldives as the fun factor is immensely linked with such services compared to other countries where you can explore the cities independently.

Not up to expectation”
Stay 2 night in the Hotel. We were given only 1 shower towel. Requested for another tower but was not given. End up we have to share 1 tower for the whole trip. Really disappointed.

great location offering reasonable day trip”
great location, it has the only private bikini beach in Maafushi. Really nice to have breakfast there n enoy the beatiful ocean view. Please be aware that hot shower water always run out in the old building with nicer ocean view, but my friend live in the new building has no such problem Hotel is walking distance to the pier. However, you can send an email noticing them your arrival time. Will send staff to pick up/drop off your luggage at the pier...very convenient. offering snorkelling day trips at reasonable price. The staff there are polite and nice general. However, if few of them asking you if you wanna add them as wechat friend. You can totally ignore them. As my friend and I both received nasty messages after.

Stay Away!”
Friends stay away from this property if you don't want to ruin your vacation. The place was dirty and mis-managed. Staff is polite but what's the use if they cannot help you. They have only few life jackets which are in Ok shape and that too are unavailable most of the times. Buffet is horrible pls avoid booking for half board option. Local cafes are quite good and inexpensive. Same breakfast on daily basis. Pathetic food I must say. We were told that we would be given complimentary dinner for one light. We were all stuffed by eating from the local joints still we thought if they have arranged complimentary dinner we just went downstairs and had only the Phirni(Kheer) & came back. But later we got to know that the food wasn't complimentary and also they have cancelled it for that night. Nobody informed us and we were charged $32 for the spoonful of kheer. Lot of mosquitoes and insects in the room and also the lock of our door at the gallery was broken and curtains were also falling from the hooks. I repent of wasting my money,time for the bad experience we had there!

cheap price for an awesome four star hotel experience”
cheap price for an awesome four star hotel experience looking for the best but cheap accomodation with excellent service? this hotel is for you! Arena Beach Hotel. Tip 1. Book on Low Seasons to get half price deals. We even got upgraded to a Sea View Room! Just ask if they are available. Best eat all you can breakfast! Book a room with freew breakfast and you wont regret it. Tip 2. Who says going to Maldives is expensive? we have our Snorkeling, Turtle watching, Wale Watching, and Sandbar experience with Free Lunch for only $25. They have evening dinner by the beach for only $15 (eat all you can experience) unli pasta unli barbecue and so much more! Tip 3. Hotel transfers are only $50 two way (shared speedboat). When you land at the Male Airport there is a free call or free telephone to call anywhere in maldives as long as it is landline. it is located at the information assistance booth. Tip 4. there is nothing much to do in Hulhumale so i recommend to go directly in maafushi. maafushi is one of the nearest and cheapest island in maledives. outside arena beach hotel has a public beach where you can enjoy ur bikinis! and mingle with other tourists! questions? richangelo168 instagrm
