2/10 Poor

The worst hotel I have ever stayed in.
I had been sent by my company to review this property as a potential hotel for our staff to stay while in Male. I was quite excited for my stay given the standards that this brand is known by and as a capital city hotel, I assumed my stay would be ideal. Sadly however, from first stepping in to the hotel, things did not look good. As much as the staff service was good, the hotel looked very dated, in desperate need for refurbishment and looked very worn. I arrived just before midnight and was shown to my room. The room smelled terrible, probably linked to the AC covered in dust. I tried to settle after an exhausting flight, though couldn’t stand the smell and the room just looked nothing like the photos. I then was moved to a different room where yes the room didn’t have a smell to it, though was very worn. There was still dirt on the carpet that hadn’t been vacuumed and I found bits of hair in the bathroom. The bedroom I’m assuming had been cleaned, though rather quickly and that made me quite concerned regarding the cleanliness overall. The mattress was very old and worn, lamp shades and curtains covered in dust and very little ventilation in the room. The shower head was covered in limescale and ultimately I checked out first thing in the morning. I would advise anyone not to go here and I only went as I knew the brand name. It’s nothing like the others. There are much better, cheaper hotels to consider. The worst hotel I’ve ever stayed in.

We got in at 10:30 A.M. and they had a room available for us. That was awesome since we had been flying for over 18 hours.

Good hotel
Nice hotel, room was spacious and the roof top pool was great. The bed or mattress could have done with refreshing. The food in the restaurant was good and the ground floor coffee shop was handy to have

I request a data change for departure two days before and they were able to help me as there was no activity on the island and nothing was offered to me as an alternative and I also didn't receive any kind of VIP treatment

I would stay here again
The pickup to and from the airport was seamless and they were super quick and kind. The airport transfer is one of the reasons we wanted to stay and they did a wonderful job. The only con is the bathroom floors are SUPER slippery after a shower, or if any water splashes on the floor. So just be careful in the bathroom! The little side table floor nightlights were a nice touch, I've not seen that before 😀 I would stay here again.
