We stayed here for 4 nights as part of our honeymoon trip between a night in Male and our next stop in the South Ari Atoll. We had a great stay and would definetly come back. Communications before we arrived were very prompt and we received alot of information before we got there. Ibrahim and his staff were very hospitable, members of staff were always willing to help out with advice on excursions, give us information on local history etc. We were met at the jetty on arrival in Maafushi. We were in Room 4 which was a good size and very clean, the room was cleaned every day and towels were also changed. The inn is very good value for money for food and our stay didn't cost us much considering we went on a few day trips and had lunch/ dinner on a number of occasion. There are 10 rooms in total which is what we wanted, a very small and intimate place. You are able to borrow flippers, life jackets for the day for free whereas some resorts/ hotels charge for the use. The wifi range is good but sometimes slightly slow. There is a jacuzzi which we did not use however, it was just too hot for it. I think that maybe there should be a policy of guests indicating whether or not they needed their towels changed as some days they hadn't been used but were still changed (I think however this is indicative of the Maldives and not just Stingray). There is a good system for trying to keep excursion travel costs down by each room indicatiing what day they may want to do a day trip and then the inn finding other people who wanted to go on the same day. I think there should be a little more choice for breakfast. My only moan would be that there was a weird egg (rotten) smell in the bathroom when you ran the water taps however this smell did not last long. Thanks for a great stay and without a doubt we would return.
