“excellent value in great location!”
Reviewed April 5, 2010

I went to the Maldives for a one week boat cruise around the atolls (an amazing experience that I would recommend to anyone) but I wanted to stay a few extra days to chill out (I had no hurry to go back to London's rainy weather!)...

I was traveling solo, so the idea of staying at a resort surrounded by honeymooners or families was not atractive, as well as beyond my budget.. staying in Male was a quite unappealing option, among others because there is no real beach...

But lonely planet mentioned this hotel in hulhumale (a surreal artifical island still in progress...) that seemed too good to be true... but it actually was really good... $2 bus ride or $12 taxi ride from Male's airport (20 min), $50 a night for a single room (or $75 for double room facing the ocean).... and in front of a quite nice beach.... (note that since the island is inhabited, local rules apply and bikinis et al are explicitily forbidden)

The hotel is small but clean, the rooms have a/c, breakfast is served facing the ocean in the top floor. And last, but not least, all the hotel staff was extremely friendly, nice and helpful at all times!

Obviously, this is not a resort, it has no house reef nor the facilities that resorts have, so this hotel is definitely NOT a reason to fly to the Maldives.... But if you are there and you want a relaxing place on a tight budget next to the beach surrounded by locals to stay for a couple days (either because you are preparing for or readjusting after a boat safari, or just waiting for a transfer) I would definitely recommend it...

great deal in the Maldives if you can even believe there is such a thing. Its a car ride away from the airport and great layover hotel. Unless you stay at the Holiday Inn I suggest this hotel. Clean and nice big beds with view onto the Ocean. AC/ sat TV and they cook something for you 24hrs a day. Very friendly! Breakfast is great and quite honestly you cant beat the price. Is the perfect place to stay waiting for your transfer. Other city hotels are pretty bad and have mold dust everywhere.

Stayed January 2010, traveled as a couple
