Friendly and welcoming
For an island in the middle of the ocean they do very well. The bed was sadly made of concrete but the room was nice. There were a few issues which I am sure are par for the course, when the electric went I was invited to eat in their sister hotel 2 doors up. Staff incredibly friendly and the place was clean which is really all I needed. If I returned I would stay here again

great option in the Maldives
I decided to do the Maldives the cheap/backpacker way and that meant staying on Maafushi at the Stingray vs a crazy expensive resort. You get what you pay for: the island is undergoing a lot of building work and I enjoyed mingling with the locals. Foreigners are restricted to bikini beach but staff at the Stingray can organise a bunch of excursions (great value for money): day trip to a resort, snorkelling, diving etc. The room was comfy but not sound proofed and I had very noisy neighbours so bring earplugs! the breakfast is delicious and I couldn't get enough of the fresh juices. the staff is excellent and very attentive.

What can I say? It was a disaster! I had been email with Ibrahim the manager/owner of the Stingray for about a week. I had asked him for several things, the first being information about the ferry from Male to Massfushi, he told me that due to my landing time, I wouldnt be able to get the $4 ferry but would have to get either the $40 shared speedboat or $170 speedboat provided by his hotel. When I landed, I was told I would have been able to get the $4 ferry but instead had to pay the $40 for the ferry ($70 return). I wasn't told that I would have to wait over 3 hours at the airport for the shared boat! This is an enormous amount of time when you are only in the Maldives for 48 hours. When I got to the hotel I was told that I would NOT be staying at the quaint Stringray Beach Inn I had booked but would be forced to stay at the Triton Hotel which is EXACTLY WHAT I DID NOT WANT TO DO! The Triton was OK but not the Maldivian experience I was looking for, it had no charm and for the money, I would have stayed at one of the half dozen similar hotels on the beach that I could have booked on Hotels.com. I was also told that they couldn't arrange the Whale Shark tour that I had asked them to arrange (I made these arrangements on my own). I will say the staff was nice but extremely unhelpful. If you stay at either the Stingray or Triton, make sure you get, in writing, confirmation from Ibrahim of what you are getting, I would give 1/2 or no stars if I could!

Great place for a relaxing end to our vacation
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. The owner of reared us as we arrived to the island, and explained the check in process and activities available thoroughly. The room was a great price and spacious. Everything was very clean and the restaurant is great. We especially enjoyed how there is dining and hammocks available in an open air sitting beneath the trees. It is a very short walk to the swimming beach.
