Overall room looks nice and its beautiful big windows. (Superior room) Overlooking a area of garbage, unfortunately. Bathroom is quite small but new. Not many places to put your things / very small table. Wifi barley works in room, quite better in lobby. You order breakfast from a menu, toast, egg, pancake and only a choice of 1 drink coffee/tea/juice....

The hotel is in front of the beach, and has an excellent restaurant with tables right on the sand. Staff is generally friendly and helpful, although not all. You get free beach towels and snorkelling gear. The rooms are a bit run down, of low quality, with broken plastic floor tiles, and everything is in Chinese (even the "do not...

My wife and I had a lovely beachfront dinner. The setting was just lovely being only ten metres from the gentle sea swell with lovely candles. However the meal was fraught with problems firstly being served cold (cold fries aren't nice). Also the fish was pretty tough and the meals as a while was pretty basic. The service people were...

The hotel is just beside the beach. Staff are very friendly and helpful. Most of the excursions are organized here. If you plan to mingle with local population to appreciate indigenous culture, Mafushi is nice place and San Tan Hotel is one among affordable hotel in the island.

Firstly the visa procedure - Visa is on arrival. It takes around 5 minutes to complete the procedure. Even though the visa officer doesn't demand it, keep the return flight tickets and the hotel booking slip handy. Most importantly in the flight itself you will be handed over a card which you have to fill up and handover to the...

Maldives is very very expensive; so be prepared. Our family group of 23 adults and kids just returned from a week-long vacation. We stayed at the SunTan Beach Hotel in Maafushi island, a 35 minute speedboat ride from the airport. Excellent value for money hotel. For an average of $150 per night, you get excellent beach view rooms with a...

I have lived 3 days during my Maafushi tour,hotel's location is best but the services needs a lot more improvement. We could not enjoy our food as we booked full board. Hassan is good guy and helpful and the rest staff is friendly.
