The room was big and super clean. The tour guides were good and they really value the safety of their passengers. Jack, their manager, was very nice. He managed to cater our last minute request. The staff over staff were also very nice and approachable. Would book this hotel again. Thank you so much.

          We stayed in Crystal Sand for 2 days in Maafushi. Apart from excellent locations, clean rooms, amazing food, what I would appreciate the most is their hospitality. The chef was so helpful to prepare separate dishes for our one year old daughter that we cannot thank enough. We loved everything there. Go for Crystal Sands without a doubt. The BEST in Maafushi!

          Love the location and the decor of this hotel, and the staff were amazing! Maria and Envie have been so helpful and attentive to the guests’ needs. I just hope they have changed their room towels, as I have advised them that it was ripped and old and not presentable. But overall, good breakfast, close to the speed boat terminal and the bikini beach (the only beach that foreigners are allowed to swim at with bikinis - note that Maldives is a conservative Muslim country and this island has a local population living on it).

          Jack (manager) and the rest of the staffs are just so nice and friendly. Jack will great you at the jetty and carefully explain to you about the hotel and the activities at the main lobby. at first when we arrived, we got the room without the sea view even we booked (ocean deluxe) which supposed to have full sea view. we lodge a complain and jack give us another room the next morning which is a beach deluxe i guess that has a sea view. the breakfast buffet was okay. they had a really nice waffle. as for the activities, you can discuss to take it with crystal sand or you can just go to other nearby hotel to compare the prices. the price is okay and not too expensive as they will give free speedboat transfer to airport. Overall, i have a pleasant stay at the hotel

          The room is clean, with fantastic water activities and good price. Restaurant is also not bad. The owner and the managers are very hospitality. The only problem is the mosque is broadcasting every 5am in the morning, but I guess the whole island could hear. No much see view but it doesn't matter, as the purpose is to explore the resident island and water activities.

          the local food, the staff and lovely atmosphere

          The hotel was right near the beach where you can swim, snorkel and sunbath in a bikini if you want to. it is a small secluded beach 1 minute walk from the hotel. There is also a small park for children to play right by the beach. the snorkelling is ok especially if you have children. the water is shallow and its perfectly safe. to see more than fish you need to book a boat but they are not too expensive and they did half price for the children. the boat trips were amazing. sharks, turtles, dolphins and the coral was fantastic. The staff were great, always helpful and sorted local food out for us as the all inclusive is basic food. the local food was amazing. Local fish soup and Sri Lankan curry....i could eat every day. The small roads are all covered in sand and is a lovely relaxing place to be. We had an amazing holiday.

          Nice hotel, friendly staffs, cheap rate

          Very very nice hotel just right in front of the loading ferry area. Clean and nice room. Had 3 nights stay, regretted why didn't stay longer. Love this hotel so much with their friendly helpful staffs. Will recommend people to take this hotel for sure. But the foods are not so good.

          Location service clean

          Service was awesome , staff are helpful and prompt. They give free mineral water . Nazeer is especially helpful as well as all other staff. Thank you for making our stay comfortable. Just on a side note , the food could be better ! Overall it's worth the money , hope to be back in a few years time with the same condition !

          A nice relaxing hotel”

          The beach , room , staff

          A very nice hotel in Maldives which we enjoyed a lot. The staffs are all very attentive and helpful, and they speaks perfect English which makes communication no problem at all. The room is big and clean and tidy and we also love the pool and the gym room. Breakfast is good with a great selection of food and drinks. We highly recommend this hotel to anyone who want to travel to Maldives.
