It really did the trick for us. Back from 10 days of intensive live aboard diving we had booked the "best locally available", as far as we knew. It's nice chilling for 16 hour, rest & relax comfortably. It took a tiny while at reception as we were early - we were offered to used the pool, large and just fine (though no staff until after 10am). The Eastern European young lady Receptionist made a pro impression & so did especially her Maldivian colleague who run the Guest Desk. Pool lunch was easy & tasty (salad/BBQ/burgers etc), with a reactive enough polite attendant. Diner at casual & enjoyable "Champs Deck" with our UK dive maestros was absolutely fine; we were well, nicely & timely cared for and enjoyed.
One shouldn't expect a 100% 'Western' degree of understanding of our expectations & "minimum requirements" at all times. 85% is just fine!
Yes, recommended as the hotel/resort to await your flight or for a short stay in Male.
Request a Deluxe with a Indian Ocean balcony view!

Room Tip: Deluxe with Ocean view! Close to the pool is nice too,

We booked a day room to Bridge the time between Arrival at Male Airport and our flight. When checking in we were told the room would not be available before 2:30 p.m. What sense does this Kind of day room make? Anyway massive construction work noise would have made it impossible to get sleep. Staying atthe pool (nice area but unclean cushions) is the nicest place at hulhule. In summary: We paid a massive Price just for a shower. Rooms are ok.

Stayed at Hulhule for a few days on the way in/out of the Maldives. Great place to hold over for a night or two with very comfortable rooms and a nice pool. Only place in vicinity of Male that serves beer!! Great restaurants poolside and on the top floor looking out toward the ocean. Staff were very helpful and there is a free ferry that runs from the hotel to Male almost hourly from 0800-2200. Only complaint was the high price for in room WiFi.

Room Tip: Free WiFi in the lobby only. Every room has a sea view and balcony.

We were extremely disappointed with this hotel. We arrived at the airport to be advised that we had missed our flight after the most horrendous transfer via sea plane from our island that we had visited for our honeymoon. We were told that we would have to stay at the Hulhule Hotel until they could find us another flight which would probably be in a few days. Luckily we only had to stay here for 1 night.

Upon arrival at the hotel (4:30pm) we were told that check in was not until 7pm. My husband and I thought that we would go and have a little look around the hotel - we wish we hadn't! There was scaffolding up at the hotel, walked round by the swimming pool - it's what I imagine Benidorm to be like! We were told that we would be there on a half board basis. However were told that we couldn't eat in the restaurant and had to eat in the Coffee Shop. The set menu for us was Thai Green Curry for dinner and ice cream for dessert - no way was it proper chicken that was served it was disgusting. We didn't fancy attempting breakfast so decided to check out early (6:45am) and go and get some breakfast at the airport.

There were little flies in the hotel rooms which were horrible. You know you've not come to somewhere very glamorous when you have to turn a switch on to heat the water up before a shower. The pillows are like sleeping on a brick!

Also warning to anyone that does stay here, do not use the Wifi in your room, we had to pay $30 each to use the Wifi. Disgusting!!!!

In this hotel, people probably go only for one night, when their flight is arriving too late or departing too early to take the seaplane to/from their holiday island.
In this case, this hotel could just run the house without big effort...but this is absolutly not the case ! This hotel is very nice, rooms are big with flat screen tv. some have balcony. The buffet is very nice with view on the capitale Malé. Outside there is a green to push some golf put and tennis places. There is a big swimmingpool and also a little beach ! If you want you can also go to the spa to get a nice massage or treatment.
There is a free shuttle to the international airport or the seaplane terminal and also a free boat to Malé.
Price is a little high but this hotel is the only one so near the airport and the facilities are really good.
