The customer service at Stingray Beach Inn was excellent! Ibrahim and his staff are professional, friendly and willing to help make your vacation suitable for your budget and group. There are great excursion options that are affordable and fun that can be personalized to your needs and wants. We went snorkeling twice because it was so fun and saw sea... More

The inn has a nice friendly, island laid back atmosphere. But service is definitely up to notch. I have emailed and called the hotel a few times, 2 weeks before the trip as 3 of us will be arriving separately. But the manager Ibrahim has helped to arrange everything smoothly. Room was big and clean, and can fit 3 persons... More

I cannot say enough about how great the stingray is. Best food on the island, great manager and staff, cozy rooms, 2 mins from the beach. Little extras such as beach towels, bicycles, jacuzzi, table football, make a world of difference. Also organize excursions.

We stayed in this little friendly hotel in February. The manager Ibrahim was so informative on island, possible excursion, Yunus was a great waiter not only serving in a high quality but also having close friendship with our 4 year old son. Their menu is so broad, you can find whatever you want. We tried their different pizzas, beefs, fish... More

This place is really beautiful. Every guest is respected. Great location on the island, like a little garden of Eden. Clean and comfy. Just ashsme that the restaurant staff are not confident to have a little chat each day. SHY? The manager is great. Just wants to make your hoiday the best.

My wife and I came to Stingray Beach looking for a bit of a more authentic Maldivian experience than you'd get at a big resort. We were happy with our choice - the manager Ibrahim is very welcoming and friendly - always around to give advice about where to go. The island itself is a quiet one - there isn't... More

Stingray Beach is the perfect place to chill and enjoy the local vibe of Maafushi. I'm SO happy I decided to stay there instead of a "resort" island. The rooms are great and the tropical garden grounds totally fulfill my Gilligan's Island fantasy. The tourist beach (where you can wear a bathing suit) is a very short walk away and... More
