I had a long stay here which is not usual. Most people overnight and fly somewhere the next day. I had an ocean view room with a balcony. There's this one way film on the window which helps decease how bright the sun is and I could never been certain if outside can see in when the lights are on. I saw a few reviews complain about the bathroom. It's a water closet. Familiarize with what it is before complaining. Everything was adequate but the place could use a cleaning and freshening up. There was no kettle or hair dryer. There was a safe. The wardrobe had maybe three hangers. What was really nice about the place was the friendly service. A new family took over the management so there's some experience to be had, but otherwise they try to help you as much as possible. There were some weird things with my online booking but they resolved it and saved me some money. I was also offered an extremely late check out because my flight was at night. The location is also very close to everything you would want to walk to. Grocery stores, post office, and restaurants. I would stay here again.

We stayed here for 1 night due to late arrival to Hulhumale. Hotel asked for our arrival information when we booked and said to give them a call upon arrival for them to pick us up on the airport. They did not answer the phone so we had to get a cab. The driver did not know the address so he also tried to call a couple of times but still no answer but he managed to find the place. We were suppose to pay with our credit card but they couldn't make the machine to work so we had to go around the island to try to find an ATM. After a few hours we got to our apartment and it was really dirty (bedsheets clean) but otherwise not very nice. Kitchen had coffeemaker, refrigerator and some cooking plates but there was no glasses, no plates, no forks or knives, all kitchen was totally empty. Bathroom was large and could have been nice if it was cleaned. Hair in the shower, mirror full of stains from previous guests and no hygiene articles at all. Apartment was on 2 floors and kind of nice but a strong smell of mold on both floors. We did not get to have the breakfast that we paid for but the area set for breakfast was right in the reception and did not look too nice. We where going to leave early next morning and when we got down to the reception one of the staff was sleeping on the floor on an old mattress (where the breakfast would be served an hour later). The transferservice back to airport was 20 minutes late and we almost missed our flight. Staff not very friendly nor service minded and spoke bad English. We did not pay a lot of money for this place so we didn't expect it to be topnotch at all but this place was worse than we expected in many ways and we would not recommend anybody to stay here at all.

We stayed for 2 nights before moving to a resort and were pleasantly surprised when we got an upgrade. The airport pick up and drop was smooth and without any issues. The room was spacious and clean, we only had an issue with the wifi which kept dropping all the time. The location is quite convenient as it allows you to step out and enjoy the beach side cafes

Booked 2 rooms to stay with my family. Upon check in found that they had sold one of the rooms we booked. Gave us another room which had some sort of electrical shortage. The elcb kept tripping. They could not fix it. When we asked for room change it was not possible. They refused a refund too. Asked us to stay there and they can try to fix it next morning. We had to give a big fight just to get a refund. Worst of the worst.

If you have a budget constraint and traveling by yourself, then perhaps you could consider staying in Ripple Beach Inn. This is not a fancy hotel but below average. The breakfast is not great and does not have any restaurant facilities. The room service, cleanliness, and housekeeping services are satisfactory. As Hulhumale has plenty of construction work going on in the neighborhood, one must be mentally prepared to withstand the noise level.
