          Superb sea view!”

          We have no regret choosing the seaview rooms because the view was very very amazing & superb! We can see the peaceful beach at the balcony. Everything was clean just I think the room space is quite small compared to others. But surely will choose this hotel again! Thank you!

          Perfect stay in Maafushi”

          One of the most recommended place to stay in Maafushi. We stayed at the new building, very spacious room & Nice balcony view. Staffs are friendly & helpful. The hotel is exactly in front of the beach. The buffet dinner & breakfast was awesome, good food. However the only cons is the wifi which u need to key in password everytime, but the speed is good. Will definetely stay here again in future.

          Lovely stay with great service from staff”

          Our stay with Arena definitely contributed to the wonderful experience we'd in the Maldives! The room is big and the toilet is really clean with warm water to shower (the only feedback is that the toilet had a little unpleasant smell initially). The staff were really helpful and friendly - they greet you and ask about your stay :-) The breakfast spread is decent and I'd recommend trying the dinner buffet as well - there is a really nice spread and the atmosphere is lovely with live singing. The hotel also offers a good variety of tours and they are really professional! Would definitely recommend this hotel and come back to stay again!

          Great stay, value for money”

          Considering I stayed there for a whole week and had awesome view of the sea from my hotel room (level 7), Id say I had a good deal. For those who have specifically booked a seaview room, you may want to request for a higher level from 4 upwards to really enjoy your money's worth. Initially I was given a 2nd level seaview which resulted in me facing a tree. I requested politely for a change of room and they allowed it the next night onwards and the newer wing building. The hotel has direct access to the beach in front. They also have alot of excursions which were well organised. Food options were not too much, but not an issue for me.

          The best hotel on Maafushi. Most friendly staff, excellent cuisine and a beautiful private beach.”

          So far the most friendly staff I have met. the location is great. I recommend a room with a view of the sea. A nice private beach, a private swimming pool on the eighth floor of the hotel. The kitchen is among the best on the island but also among the expensive ones with a large selection of varied food. The only negative thing is that beside the hotel there is a construction site, which is not loud enough to spoil the sleep on the beach or in the hotel room.

          Place is great, not necessary the sea view”

          The top up for sea view may be very deceiving as you pay a lot more for (sometimes) really obstructed views. Either because you are on a low level, or the trees just block it all. Some of our friends experience that and the amount you pay makes it really frustrating. Other than that it’s good.

          Amazing view”

          The room that we got was on the 2nd floor of the newly constructed building and we had a lovely view. However, part of this view is the roof of the construction site. If you can bypass that, then you'll like this place. The smell from the bathroom is a bit strong as well, so we had to put down the toilet seat and that solved the issue. We got a room for 2, but the bed were obviously just 2 beds jammed together.

          If you are staying at Maafushi then I would strongly recommend Arena Beach Hotel. It is very clean and service is great! The beach is located just in front of the hotel and the view is just stunning! The dinner service is worth it as you get to eat by the beach and for an extra fee, they would set you up with a heart shape plateau with candle lights around it. To top it off, they have a live band playing so you can relax and soak in the atmosphere. Me and my wife really enjoyed the romantic vibes and splendid view. Awesome experience!

          We debated between an all inclusive resort island and mafushi. After spending the week at Arena we knew we made the right decision to stay on Mafushi island. The hotel was great, snorkeling of the beach was amazing (we saw rays, parrot fish, butterfly fish etc. ). The staff are great (shout out to my boy Saddam for keeping our room clean). Excursions are worth it (sadly we were not able to do the whale shark snorkeling since it was off season).

          Sad about the money I lost there.. ”

          ... And happy to book just one night. I think you could have a nice stay, when you're in the mainbuilding. But I was staying in the second building right beside the hotel. I booked a deluxe room with balcony and seaview. I payed 100 dollar instead just 60 dollar, what's the price for a room without seaview. I had a room on the second floor and yes, I can see the beautiful sea, but right in front of you there is something like a dump. They're building next to the hotel and in front of my balcony, was the center of the building site. I think when you stay in rooms which are on the 5 floor or higher, you don't see this. I couldn't really use the balcony to relax, because it was so loud and you have the feeling the workers are standing next to you. But the baddest think was the noise. They were working till late in the evening and you could not sleep. Also the walls are very, very thin. I heared all conversations from the rooms beside me. In the night there were children playing and screaming till 2 a.m. At morning the worker start at 7 a.m. I had the feeling to stay in a building site next to a kindergarden. I have understanding for the fact, that they have to work fast for new buildings, but not at sleeptimes. The bed is to short. Tall persons will have problems with that. I expected a bigger room, but it was OK. The TV doesn't work. No signal. The bathroom was very nice and clean. The dinner was very good, great selection and good taste. The staff is friendly, but I can't give a nice rating, because that one on the reception was not very interesting my uncomfortable staying. When you pay the highest price of the island you really expect more!

But im have fun there. Thank you so much.
