10/10 Exceptional

The owner was extremely hospitable and allowed me to check in late. He even drove me to the bank and hospital for an additional PCR test I needed for a later flight. They provided complimentary water too and I was able to have my laundry taken care of there by the staff. They hotel was directly across from the beach and about 30 minutes from the airport-very convenient. It was also located right in the heart of everything. Restaurants and coffee shops were close by. The rooms were cozy, apartment style and very clean! The bed was comfy, had an AC, a mini-fridge and the room even had a small balcony. The complimentary breakfast was tasty. Edwin was like my personal concierge. Great hotel for a great price!

2/10 Poor

It’s an over priced place, i went there in to check in in the middle of the night and the room smelled like a dead rat, in plus of the humidity smell, I didn’t accept to check in and left to another hotel

2/10 Poor

Horrible experience. The room was unclean, the staff was unfriendly, unhelpful and even tried to scam us offering to exchange our US dollars to local currency (they said the closest money exchange was "too far" from the hotel, and we quickly found one 3 blocks away and of course with a better rate of what they were offering). Simple requests like asking for extra towels were reluctantly addressed by the front desk with a real bad attitude. On top of everything, we woke up to find no electricity in our room after the first night, which meant no AC in a hot and humid weather. As anyone would do, we fled the place first thing in the morning and are currently asking for a full refund of our money. This place was the only downside of our trip to Maldives, a wonderful country that can't be enjoyed staying in this hotel. Wouldn't recommend it to anybody, stay away!!!

4/10 Fair

Staff was nice and tried their best to address the issues we raised. We stayed one night before going to resort. 1. Room leaked water and stank of mold. Staff seemed surprised about the massive leak and let us change rooms. 2. Staff merely watched as I carried my family’s luggage down tiny stairs. 3. After arranging hotel transport to airport for transfer to our resort, transport was late and we almost missed flight. 4. Breakfast was corn flakes, that was it. 5. Photos of hotel are deceptive and do not show true state of facilities which are best described as run down. 6. In first room bed linens were stained with yellow splotches.
