I was on my business trip with my partner to Maldives. As we went during the seasonal period all the hotels were already booked, finally got the room in Hulhule island hotel .Booking Agent was Maldivestourister.com as they have best rates for Maldives & cater flights as well .We landed on the Male airport and picked up by the agent.. The hotel is just few minutes away from the airport and is located in the middle of the city which was our priority. The hotel is very nice place for business and transit. All the other hotels in Maldives are suitable for leisure trip.

The hotel offers proximity to the city and local life. We were checked in to the room having a panoramic view of the Indian Ocean in various shades of blue.

Positive points of the hotel-

1. Located in the middle of the city so convenient for the business travelers.

2. Rooms were neat and clean with twin beds. Bathrooms were good and spacious with shampoos and conditioner of good quality.

3. The main attraction of the hotel is the manmade beach which was good place for snorkeling and swimming.

4. Wi-Fi facility was available all over the hotel.

5. There was well equipped conference room for meetings and workshop. We also organize the workshop over there and on our request they arrange the audio-visual equipments.

6. After hectic day schedule good food in dinner is the necessity. They offer wide range of food and beverage option from all across the world. We also tried some cocktails in the beach bar.

7. One more plus point about the hotel is that they offer day rates in case u wanna extend.

Apart from all these facilities there were some negative points about the hotel-

1. The day rate is absurdly over-priced for an extension

2. Internet service was not free of cost.

3. Rooms were damp and lack lighting.

But overall the hotel is good for the business travelers. The honeymoon couples can go for better option but it can work as well

This is the only airport hotel in Male, and they take full advantage out of it. Prices are outrageous, the staff is not friendly, and the whole atmosphere is nothing but depressive. In the so-called "gourmet" restaurant we were served Perrier water which tasted like tap water! The waiter said the "carbonation was lost during transportation". Avoid it if you can.

This is a great hotel. I stay very long time (01 week). People are very good, exceeded expectation on quality. Good velu for mony. I like spa, gym, beach and uduvila restaurant for breakfast.

Staff have big smile always - front counter, restaurant & room.

I stay in big room deluxe, sound proof and no disturbance of airport flgihts.

Overall good and enjoyed my trip

Room Tip: Deluxe room on ground floor is direct to beach is very good

We stayed here over night whilst waiting for our sea plane transfuere to Centara. We arrived at approx 10pm there was a rep waiting that showed us to the shuttle bus transported straight to hotel. Easy check in process not long winded like some.
Rooms were fine, went straight to the bar for a few night caps.
Breakfast was great lots of choice the a quick and easy check out back t the airport for sea plane check in. Hulhule staff made sure we were checked in before they left and and we're very helpful.
Rooms were clean and well maintained, spotlessly clean. Staff were friendly and very helpful. The buffet breakfast was great set us up for the day.
All in all a great start to our stay in the Maldives and would use again if we had a late incoming flight. Or a late flight with an early sea plane from resort.
Thanks again to the staff

I spend one night at this hotel before moving to the resort. Our flight was delayed and there was someone still waiting for us at the new arrival time at the airport terminal. The rooms were clean and comfortable. Room service food was good. Their breakfast was also good and fresh. Easy check-in. Friendly staff. It's ideal if you arrive late and you want to spend the night before going to your resort. It's NOT a place to spend your vacation at. If you want to stay at Male. I would recommend that you get a hotel downtown since this one is expensive and doesn't offer much to do.
