We had probably our best trip in a lifetime!!! In maafushi’s crystal sands everything was PERFECT. Jack has been probably the best host we’ve met. They have a lot of excursions to do. The guides are awesome! We have a very good memories with Reshan. It was very instructive and friendly. The buffet was ok. And all of the people were very kind. Cheers from Catalonia. Eric & David.

We stayed in the hotel from 06-March-20 to 10-Mar-20. Location of the hotel is good. Mafuushi is a small island but this hotel is even closer to the pier. After our long flight and ferry, this really mattered. We were glad that we reached to the hotel in no time. Facilities were a bit worn out but all these were made up by excellent hospitality provided by the staffs, especially the manager Jack. After our romantic dinner on my wife's birthday, we were pleasantly surprised to see the birthday decorations in the room. Should we visit Mafuushi again, we will stay in Crystal Sands.

Very pleasant hotel with excellent chefs – the curries and related food were all excellent. We were informed the chefs were from Bangladesh, India and Sri Lanka. We would recommend eating local and Asian food from these areas – wonderful. We had all inclusive, excellent. Good rooms, very practical. Staff cleaning the rooms and helping with luggage very friendly and helpful. The evening buffet included bbq fish – this was a highlight too. It would be nice if the hotel focussed more on the fish – as most people seemed to love it. We waited for a red snapper. Eating outside excellent. The island has a significant problem with flies. The dump is on the southern side, but it is a very small island. If the island could manage this problem (it is not the hotel’s responsibility), it would make an enormous difference and eating outside would be easier. There are a few mosquitoes, but we used DEET 50. We had no mosquitoes in our room. Friendly and knowledgeable locals offering snorkel and dive tours, although we struggled to find a trip for an hour or two, everything seemed to be part of a package and large groups. In conclusion a very good stay and a lovely island with very friendly local people and good food.

Ok so this hotel has very basic rooms so if you are expecting a luxurious honeymoon hotel room don’t go here. If you are looking for an inexpensive but superb hotel go here! The staff are really what make this hotel shine! Janice at the front desk was exceptional! I have never received such great service. They allowed me to check in early even though I didn’t ask. When I wanted to book day tours with them they didn’t have what I wanted but they found a company on the island both days for the tours I wanted!! I didn’t have to do the foot work they did! The breakfast was decent and the other food was really good in the restaurant. The most amazing thing though.... I took a tour on the day I checked out when I got back from the tour they had kept my room the way it was so I could go take a shower and relax before leaving for male that night! This was so unexpected and amazing to clean up after swimming in salt water all day. I will be eternally grateful to this team for that little effort that really impressed me. Please stay at this hotel the location is awesome. You will not regret it!
