We came to this hotel just to relax and we could definitely do that. It's nice and quiet and close to bikini beach, although not on the beach. The owner/manager was very friendly and helpful, the only problem Is that some of the staff were quite rude and unfriendly. Sometimes when we sat to order a coffee we got an...

We stayed in three different hotels in Maafushi and this is not the best. Stingray is a Maldivian style hotel with very basic amenities and is probably one of the first few hotels in Maafushi. Hence, it is not new and don't expect any luxury from it at all. We don't even have quilt and I had to wear socks...

This is one very good, real Maldives, small comfortable hotel with picturesque garden. Clean rooms and nice staff. But kitchen! Kitchen is perfect! There is the best seafood soup I have ever tasted. Absolutely fresh fishes and another goodies from sea. And some magic. If you visit Maafushi island, you must try it!

PROS I have only good things to say about Stingray Inn. Ambiance: Lovely lighting that gives the whole place a nice relaxing atmosphere when it gets dark. It certainly was very relaxing lying in the hammock at night or sitting in the Jacuzzi as soon as it got dark. Best thing about Stingray was that you dont feel cut off...

Travelled with my wife. We highly recommend this location. From far the best in Maafushi after our survey. Room was very clean. Staff was one of the best we travelled so far. Very attentive, always helpful and good En speaking. The food is great at Stingray, and we did choose to have the dinner only there. We also tried most...

Close to bikini beach and they also provide sun bed, bicycle, snorkel gears for free. If the weather is not good they will cancel the day trip and pick another day or refund rather than venture out in bad weather. The restaurant is among the best we tried in Maaufushi, we like the curry dishes, grilled fish. Overall the staff...

We enjoyed our stay at stingray. The staff were fantastic, very accommodating and helped us organise a few trips. The food is also really nice and there is a good selection for breakfast. My only negative comment is that I was a little disappointed with the rooms, my partner was happy with it however I think after reading so many...

Excellent hotel staffs. Always smiling and welcoming faces. They arrange good trips. Half day trip and Fishing trips were our favourites. Comfortable rooms, Nice air conditioner, neat bathrooms (with hot water 24/7) and free drinking water. Had my wife's birthday during the trip. They arranged for a nice b'day cake when I requested. Enjoyed our stay completely with Stingray.
