Service and Staff
Property condition


  • Disliked: Staff & service, property conditions & facilities

The property is located in Male' which is a pro in itself. The staff were friendly when checking in. They didn't do anything extraordinary to make you feel welcome, which is not common for the Maldives. The hotel lobby wall was water damaged and had mold. The smell was foul. On Friday during prayer time, I was locked in the hotel with no way to leave. The main door was locked. When the staff returned they proceeded to put the blame on me as the customer. They weren't even apologetic to the extent that it was said it was hotel policy to lock the customer inside of the hotel on Friday. This could of been solved with a simple apology, or leaving an extra key for the customer; however, they proceeded to ignore me for the rest of the stay. For this reason, its better to stay at another hotel.

Convenient and pleasant stay.

We arrived very early in the morning but was still able to check in. This small hotel is conveniently located near the ferry terminal to the airport. Basic but comfortable.

  • Liked: Cleanliness

Good stay except I was asked for flight details - I replied via Expedia and by email but didn't receive a reply so I had to get a taxi from airport instead of hotel shuttle.
