We stayed at Stingray Beach Inn two weeks in February 2013. What we really liked was the cosiness of the place and the very friendly staff. It is a small place and everything is very kept clean and tidy. The location is great close to the beach (where bikinis are allowed) and very peaceful, which also holds for the entire island. The beach is not that large, but the water is absolutely astonishing - we have never seen anything like that. And 50m from the beach the coral reef starts with many beautiful and very colourful fishes and just 100m out we saw Stingrays and a reef sharks (NOT dangerous but shy, so we only caught short glimpses).
There are small things at Stingray Beach Inn that are not perfect, but this is to be expected since it is a 2 star B&B not a five star resort, which is also reflected in the price and value for money is definitely excellent. The only glitch that I find worth mentioning is the inconsistency of the food quality - sometimes really really good (especially if you like fish) but sometimes not that good (and wrong dishes served more than once). However, the other restaurants in the area is not performing better - maybe even to the contrary - especially getting the food while it is warm seems to be a big challenge in general.
Thanks to Ibrahim and the entire staff for all the service you provided, which helped make our vacation in the Maldives absolutely unforgettable.
