          Best stay ever. I will stay here again next time. Kate was the best!”

          The room was great and did not smell at all. Compared to the one we stayed in Hulhumale, White Shell definitely deserves 5 star rating. The toilet was clean and was not clogged. No bad smell was coming from the toilet. No sand on the floor. And they cleaned the room really well the next day. Just the best hotel 👍🏻 The receptionist named Kate was super helpful and gave us all the information that we needed. She understood that we had limited time and explained to us the excursions that we could take even without us asking. We were really thankful and happy for that. They even let us checkout later than the time because our half day trip ended past the checkout time so we could use the room to get ready before we go home by speedboat. Kate helped us a lot by telling us that we can make it for the half day trip and we could change the time booked for the speedboat. Thank you Kate and I hope all hotels/resorts will have people like you. Wish you all the best and will definitely come here next time! P/s just book the excursions with White Shell = easier

          Near the harbor, nice staff, acceptable in general”

          Pros: staffs are good and helpful( helped us print the documents that we need) location is good as well, just 2 hrs ferry from male, a bit tiring...... Cons: bad communication. We joined one day tour in resort, but hearing back to the airport at the same day. The staff did not inform us that we might miss some activities like afternoon tea and shark feeding since the boat to airport will depart earlier. When we raised it to the manager of the hotel, she just informed that there is nothing more she can do but ask us to pay for the private speedboat if we wanna enjoy the whole schedule. In the end, we talked directly with manager in the resort and fixed the problem.

          I was suprised upon arrival at Maafushi their staff Mohamed already waited for me at the jetty as i didn't even asked them to do so . They take our bags and bring it to the hotel . Upon arrival we were greeted with a fresh cold towel and orange juice which satisfies me a lot during the hot weather . Bought their half day snorkling package with the cheapest price for 20usd thanks to Mohamed . Towels , bottled waters , shampoo & soap were provided . A/c was nice & cold . Breakfast was superb and new menu everyday !! There's a mini mart on the left and a souvenir shop in front and the hotel is 15 feet away from the beach . Everything was perfect and i will definately come back !!

          Location, Rooms, New Hotel

          It is a good new Hotel, like most of them on the Island. All is quite new here and the Island will become more and more touristic in the future. They are building a lot. The Beach is only 2-3 min walk. Restaurants are enough on the island. A Boat where you can drink alcohol is located 20m in front of the island, so if you need to drink some you could go there or make a day trip to the islands. the Hotelstuff is very helpfull to plan your trips

          They waited for you at pier for your arrival with welcome drink & cold towel! accessibility to anywhere nearby, very cheap bar menu!

          it's just seconds to reach the beach, directly opposite the best dive shop in maafushi, (great staff and cheap bar menu), give you the best for the lowest possible pricing on the island, iCom travel is also the cheapest on the island for any tour. I can said this is the best experience I had after traveling to so many asia country. 3 day in a row I seen pod of dolphins during my dive & returning back to male by speedboat. All different staff bring us so close to the dolphins that you don't need to pay a single cents.

It's very near the beach, where you can use Whiteshell Resort's beachfront. The staff was friendly and they communicated well. The hotel was new, clean and very affordable. The hotel can also arrange daytrip excursions at very reasonable prices.

          We stayed for 4 nights in this hotel. And I could say we enjoyed our stay although there are a few things that they should improve on. All the staff were very nice, accommodating and helpful. The breakfast was really delicious and the rooms were very clean. They saw to it that the rooms were well-kept each day. They assisted and helped us with our daily tours and transfers. The only thing that they should improve on is the communication and responsiveness to their guests. 1 week before our arrival, we kept on sending them messages for our airport transfer however there was no response until we sent a message on messenger. Upon arrival in the airport, there was NO ONE to pick us up. Luckily, there was a woman outside the airport holding a sign: MAAFUSHI boat transfer. We approached the kind lady and she called our hotel only to find out THEY FORGOT to send them the details of OUR ARRIVAL which was very disappointing and frustrating. Well this is the only thing they should improve on but

          We stayed here at the last minute because our original hotel we chose overbooked themselves. We ended up being really happy with the whiteshell choice! It is about a 5 minute walk from the ferry and a 3 minute walk to the tourist beach. The staff spoke good English were helpful and personable. Breakfast was nice. Hot water, AC was great. The beds and pillows were too hard but that’s just preference. Very happy!

          SCAMMERS - Do not book this hotel”

          We stayed in 3 different hotels in Maafushi. This one was the worst. When we arrived at the hotel, during the check-in, the reception asked us to pay an extra $21 in cash. We had paid the hotel by credit card on Agoda already. So we checked our Agoda invoice and it said that we had to pay 7 euros in cash. But the receptionist was extremely aggressive with us. We said that it was a very bad business practice. This was blackmail. There are taking advantage of the tourists. The other hotels we stayed in were less dishonest than this one. Also the room is very small and the beach of Maafushi is one of the worst of the Maldives. Maafushi is an island of scammers (speed boats, restaurants, excursions)... Please do not support those scammers.

          cleanliness, service from the manager, price-quality

          We have had a pleasant stay at WhiteShell Island Hotel and Spa. We enjoyed staying at the maldives and whiteshell located on maafushi (local island) made it possible to go there on a budget. The hotel was very clean and the manager was very friendly. He asked us how our day was, what we have done and if everything was okay with the room. We sent a request before our stay to the hotel that we would like to stay at the topfloor. When we arrived they didn't get that arranged, but some days later they packed all our stuff and dropped it in another, topfloor room. We were very suprised that they moved all our stuff to the new room and placed everything on the same place!
