I chose this hotel because I was visiting Male on business focused on the airport and did not want the hassle of taking 2x suitcases via water taxi to the main island/city of Male. (This aspect of visiting Male has just been removed by the opening of a road bridge across the harbour!). The hotel is in a great location if you are in transit for a day or two or you have business at the airport. Also, if you are not on a 'resort vacation' but do want to have access to the water and to exploring the various islands by means of the daily hire of locals with boats, then this hotel is superb. Clean, very friendly, on a quiet street and at the edge of the ocean (a small lagoon sheltered by a reef). Note: this is not a 'swimming' beach as the water is only knee-deep. Wi-Fi was free but reception was often very slow - apparently, this is to be fixed. Easy access to bus transportation. The whole area is very easy to walk around ad there are small supermarkets/corner stores within a 5-minute walk. Thoroughly recommended!
