2/5

  • Disliked: Cleanliness, amenities, property conditions & facilities

Staff was nice and tried their best to address the issues we raised. We stayed one night before going to resort. 1. Room leaked water and stank of mold. Staff seemed surprised about the massive leak and let us change rooms. 2. Staff merely watched as I carried my family’s luggage down tiny stairs. 3. After arranging hotel transport to airport for transfer to our resort, transport was late and we almost missed flight. 4. Breakfast was corn flakes, that was it. 5. Photos of hotel are deceptive and do not show true state of facilities which are best described as run down. 6. In first room bed linens were stained with yellow splotches.

3/5

    Stayed in the sea view penthouse suite for 2 nights. One night on our arrival to Malé before going to our resort and the second on our return trip home. I would definitely say it’s only good to stay for a night in transit to your next hotel/resort. The bathroom in the pictures is NOT the actual bathroom. I had to blast the air conditioning on the lowest setting to not sweat to death. Breakfast was decent. We were a family of 4 and were only provided with 2 towels, 3 pillows and two blankets. Luckily we brought my youngest blanket. Our feet were black when we left from the dirty floors so I would suggest wearing shoes or socks the entire time. Staff was nice and very friendly during our stay though.

      Stay with Family in Maldives near to city area

      The staff was very welcoming, supportive, and helping. The hotel is located in an area very safe and with all kind of availabilities on walking distance. The morning was very beautiful with an awesome sunrise view. General continental breakfast is served on the table in lobby area. If you plans your stay in this hotel due to humid weather better take insects repellent (especially for mosquito, bed bugs), soap and shampoo with you. Be ready to climb lot of stairs with short spacing like ladder. Room make over is until 1PM. For water activities islands are good or consult directly with the companies a day or before.
