Unfortunately, we missed our plane and were driven to this Hotel by (ex) Resort people.Never ever that we experienced room in Hotel where we were literally suffocating ALL night as our, so called window, was actually a brick whole where all Hotels air-conditions were hanged and all the gas was coming back to our room, or inside the Hotel. On a top of that, you could not call anybody as was no number written in the bedroom, nobody at the Reception and another major horrible issue, the smell from sewerage was coming and going and when it comes, vomiting was the only way to survive. Bunch of sarcastic liars who wrote untrue statements with intent to deceive. Do not GO THERE!!!
At great expense decided to stay at the Nice Inn The rooms are fantastic, kept spotless, towels everyday.... The location is good, easy to access to shopping areas and beach. Some of the Staff (female), are not helpful and unfriendly but the others are very friendly, polite and helpful.
My friends and I decided to book, based upon a recommendation of the Cruise Company, 3 rooms for the day and one room for the night. We hoped to get a rest, but unfortunately there was some work being done in the hotel and obviously we could not rest. This being said, the rooms were clean but poor decoration, curtains broken air condition in poor condition. No lift... and we were on the third floor Despite this the personnel was very friendly and quickly organized several things for us.
The airport transfer arrived one hour late to pick us up and there was no apology whatsoever from the staff. To aggravate matters, we were then informed upon check-in that there was no WiFi in the hotel as it was not working. As a result of the non-working WiFi, the television didn't work either. The double bed in the Family Deluxe Room sinks in the middle and was extremely uncomfortable. Unsurprisingly, the fridge in the room didn't work either.We didn't even bother to try using the safe as nothing seems to work. The room was clean though.
When I walked in the hotel all the staff was friendly and the hotel decor had a nice feeling. The room was a good rate, nicely kept and had great internet connection. I spent time up on the rooftop open-air viewing level. It is a nice private place for view the surroundings - day or night. The buffet breakfast was wonderful and an introduction into the Maldive menu as well as things I was use to eating. I met the Owner/Manager and he was an exceptionally nice person. He explained how he built the hotel (2012) and the history of Hulhumale. He is born in the Maldives and he show me a video of him winning as part of a national contest of traditional song and dance routines several years back. - YouTube - #Heyyambo 967 V.Fulidhoo Blue Star Jan 23 (He's routine is at the 12:53 minute mark in the video) We spoke on several occasions during my stay and he is and amazingly friendly guy and a knowledgeable source of information about the Maldives. I saw him grooming his staff to treat all patrons staying at the hotel with respect and utmost service. I wish I saw that at all hotels I stayed. I visited Maafushi Island and it is a good mix of local and tourism to experience. I would certainly go back to visit Haseeb and the Maldive Islands which are superbly beautiful!!…
