Male is not a pleasant experience to start with. Absolutely boring city. We had to kill one night, so following TripAdvisor reviews, we've chosen to stay at DACE. What a waste of time and money! First, it took 40 minutes of waiting outside the entrance door just to come inside. The manager was praying in a nearby mosque as it... More

I was in Male for a Scuba diving course and spent three nights at Dace. For me this hotel turned out to be a good option as all I wanted, was a clean bed to sleep after a tiring day in water, I spent all my days outside and no meals were consumed in the hotel. This hotel can be... More

Booked this hotel from Agoda and attracted by its photos, it situated in a far location, difficult to find and they don't really have a lobby. Room is very very small, the type that you can't even place a luggage and turn. We requested for a higher catergory room later on, it is a bit bigger, but the neighbor just... More

Maybe those pictures were taken 5 or 6 years ago and there wasnt any fitness centre!! This is not a hotel in the sense of a hotel but rather... More

The superdeluxe room is nice and well appointed (strangely no hot water though, except for 2 hours in the morning and 2 hours in the evening, and for a 100 usd per night it should not be a problem to have a hot shower when you want, I would think). The location is not that hard to find. But we... More

Finding decent accommodation in Male isn't easy, but this hotel won't blow your budget or leave you too disheartened. Located quite near to anything you might want to see [although to be fair mostly everything in Male is close], the hotel is clean and comfortable. The staff, whilst friendly and helpful, seemed overly keen to recommend their sister restaurant, or... More
