“Adequate for a short stay.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 14, 2014

First time in Maldives so didn't know what to expect. Rooms are small but comfortable and are kitted out in modern fashion with TV (but theres not much to watch) and large wardrobe. Bathroom is a wet room type with shower and washbasin and again is quite small, website photos have been taken with a fancy lens to elongate the view so don't be fooled. I only took breakfast which was pretty basic but fresh. As others have commented theres a nice roof terrace where you can eat and get tea and coffee etc. However if you're given a room at the rear of the hotel, be prepared for it to be noisy as the "dumb waiter" that services the terrace goes up and down most of the evening. Wi-fi is free but slow to the point of frustration if you're trying to use it regularly. The beach is just across the road and theres some good restaurants nearby. This place is fine for one or two nights maximum or for a transit stop before heading to a resort.

Room Tip: Ask for a room facing the beach on the second or third floor as they are quieter and face the sun in...

Fern Boquete Inn located near the Huhumale airport , its good to spend the night waiting your island transportation next day if you cannot go straight , its very clean ,room quality is good but it is small ,everything is new , better choose the see view , food is good and fresh and not expensive, staff is very kind and so helpful , my daughter got fever and I had to run to hospital midnight , they help me allot and they are honest and never got advantage , they send somebody to stay with my all my visit to hospital till 3 am and he arrange everything from transportation ti hospital communication and payments and everything. and at the end I paid him back very cheap amount that he did not got advantage and helped honestly .
Over all
its great place and great people .

Room Tip: Better lower floors because no lift and see view.

My hubby and I only visited the Fern Beach Café located on the rooftop of the Fern Boquete Inn as it was recommended by the receptionist at the hotel we stayed in (Hulhumale Inn). You climb several stairs (no lift) to reach the terrace which is fairly nice. We ordered two grilled calamari dishes which took some time to arrive but they were tasty though the portions are not big. The prices were reasonably cheap. A good dining option if you are in Hulhumale.

We arrived to Male at 8:00pm. We could not find the hotel staff to pick up and transfer us to the hotel. Finally we asked the airport staff for help. The airport staff suggested us to wait because the hotel representative was transferring other guests to hotel.

After 20mins the hotel van came to the airport. However, we need to wait for another 20mins because they were going to search for other guests.

After 40mins waiting we all got on the van and were transferred to the hotel. But. It just took 10mins to there.

We booked city view room. The room was new and clean. Free airport transfer, free wifi and free 2 bottles of drinking water. Just for 1 night stay in a budget hotel, what else should I demand for?

We were informed by the island resort that our seaplane check in schedule was 7:00am next morning. So we believed we should miss the breakfast. In the next morning the driver was waiting for us at 6:30am and 2 other staffs were preparing breakfast for us to take away, how thoughtful! The driver drove us to the seaplane check in counter, took care everything for us until we got on to another mini bus!

I would recommend this hotel if you will arrive Male at night and looking for a short stay.

We stayed there for two nights to celebrate our wedding anniversary. We stayed at room number 202 which gave a perfect view. Apparently the room wasn't clean enough.! It could be improved way better than that. Too dusty !! **sneezes**

Bed decoration was beautiful, could be even more better if you used petals all over the bed. Obviously we went there for a specific reason !

No juice for breakfast??? Awkward !o.O

TGST was included in our bill which was unacceptable.!! TGST cannot be taken from us, locals!

Room wasn't cleaned up unless you were asked to!! Eerr !

Kottu roshi that we ordered was amazing ! Thanks to the chef :)

Thank You
**sneezes** !! :)

We were there for a short time because we had an early morning flight out.. It was booked by the staff at Angsana and they told us it was a decent place to stay.. We were told at the resort tht they will pick us up as we landed but after asking multiple people at trans maldivian airport we found out tht we hav to go to the main airport and will be picked up from there so we took the trans maldivian bus tto main airport.. At the airport staff from Angsana helped us find the driver which wuld hav not be possible other wise as nobody was waiting for us there.. We were waiting for the driver but. Made best use of the time and went to eat at Burger King so waiting was less painful.. Later the driver told us he was waiting for more passengers and by the time we were done eating they were also there so we were taken to the hotel...Check in was easy as we just filled out a short registration form and within 10 minutes we were taken to our room.. They were kind enough to offer us fresh fruit juice while we waited.. The room was on 3rd floor and there is no lift so we had to go up by stairs... We saw a few mosquitos in the hallway and assumed there wuld be some in the room as well which was true so we asked for a mosquito repellent .. Since the mosquitos kept on appearing we just kept the spray and did enough to clear the room.. The room is small with a queen size bed and a large cupboard but still has some space to move around.. There was no blanket just a sheet to cover so we had to turn the ac down..The bathroom is quite small and there is no partition between toilet and shower so they r next to each other.. Checkout was easy as we just paid the amount and went to the airport..before checkout we were asked if we took anything from the mini bar.. We were surprised at this question as we didnt even know it was there and then he showed us it was there in the cupboard :) .. The driver was late by 15 min but since we had enough time to checkin i guess it was okay... :) over all i think if the hotel works on its short comings it wuld be a better experience for the guests...

Room Tip: Sea facing room with balcony
