“Reception needs attention”
Reviewed December 9, 2012

Book your own services when you get there dont rely on reception to do it for you.
A lovely place to stay with beautiful ocean views. Rooms were lovely with that home away from home experience.
A very secure hotel that made you feel comfortable in your stay.

Hi Trishy and thank you for taking the time to write a review. It certainly sounds as if you liked our apartments here at Maldives but I am a little confused about your comment regarding the reception. We actively promote all tours and services and are always more than happy to book anything for our guests either before you arrive or when you are here. We also provide a ticket machine in reception that operates 24 hours a day so you can even make bookings when the reception is closed. I would really appreciate it if you could let me know what you had difficulty with as we are always looking to improve our systems. Regards, David

My wife and I stayed at the Maldives for 5 months, and loved it. In a perfect location, one block from main beach and a great cafe in beach's. The owners Trudi and David made our stay, and although David may be the face on reception Trudi is certainly the brains behind a great place. If we are back next year for work we will be back for sure! We stayed long term rental, and the Maldives was great value, no fuss and great service. If you love golf, Dave also happened to be a pro so don't hesitate to ask for some golfing tips he's more than happy to take an hour or two out of his day.

Hi Mat and Sal, Thank you for that very positive although somewhat cheeky review. I love it. Trudi does a lot of excellent work behind the scenes and doesn't get the recognition she deserves so this review will make her day. Thank you. I know you enjoyed wandering down to the beach and trying to catch a few waves when you were here. I can tell you the weather is fantastic and the beach is looking beautiful. How is it back in London, freezing? Hope you make it back out here again next year and remember to give me a call if you are coming back. Regards, David

When my husband and I first arrived we were given a room on the 3rd floor - this was incredbly dated and uncomfortable, luckily due to some maintenance issues we were moved to a much nicer room on the 13th floor. The decor in our new room was very pleasant, small room but perfectly comfortable for two people, the ocean views were very impressive. The reception staff were very friendly and helpful, pointing out a few attractions for us and giving detailed directions, they were very apologetic and helpful when we reported the maintenance issues in our original room and were very quick to offer a new upgraded room.
The underground parking is a huge bonus, this was very convenient during our stay!
The location is also perfect, very close to the beach with several shops and cafe's located a couple of minutes away, sea world is also a 5 minute drive away.
We would definetly stay here again, next time though i will be paying extra to guarantee a room on a higher floor, having seen both it is definetly worth it!!!

Room Tip: Defintely pay extra for a higher floor room!

Hi Melissa, Thanks for writing a review we really appreciate it. I like your room tip recommending to pay extra for a higher floor. I am sure this will be very helpful to future guests. All of our apartments are very clean and comfortable but the apartments on the higher floors not only have the best views they are also fully renovated and very modern whereas our Garden View Apartments on the lower floors offer great value accommodation for the budget travelers. We have not been here at Maldives too long and are working very hard to lift the standard of the building. Our main focus is updating the Garden View Apartments and making them more modern to offer even better value for money. We hope to see you back here at Maldives sometime soon, Regards, David

We had a very friendly reception when we arrived. We requested a late checkout on Sunday and this was immediately agreed to with absolutely no fuss. A good start. The apartment was small but perfectly adequate for a couple. Very clean and pleasant decor, lots of natural light and the windows and sliding doors made the best of the prevailing breezes. The pool and spa were both very clean and inviting with plenty of lounge chairs to relax in.

Love the location, midway between the beach and Tedder Ave. A lovely walk to the Spit and Marina Mirage. We would definitly do this again.

Room Tip: The garden view rooms were less expensive but still had a lovely outlook over the pool and beyond to...

A very nice, tidy and clean accommodation building. The interior and the grounds are immaculate. I could not say the same about some other places I have stayed. Parking underground is perfect. Management are friendly, helpful and accommodating. The location is perfect, near the beach, a beach-front 15-20mins walk to Surfers Paradise and close to a beautiful eating area just up the street. All in all a great "home away from home" so you can relax and enjoy your holiday with peace of mind.

Room Tip: Maybe 5th floor and above with ocean view. Beautiful scene and this direction gets the morning sun a...

Booked around 12 different hotels directly on a recent tour in Oz and this place was a real gem. Unpretentious, quiet, ideally located to the beach, Tedder and also Surfers if you fancy a bit of cheesy tourism! Spotless modern rooms, great views, super facilities. David the manager is friendly, laid back with a subtle excellence in service. Got up at 5am each day to watch the most amazing sunrises so only gave the sleep quality a "very good" below!! Thanks for a great stay!
