Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We stayed at Whaleshark Beach in May. We knew that it was a new hotel that had previously been well-reviewed. But our expectations were far exceeded. Starting with the consistently friendly, cheerful and attentive staff, through to the room, the food and the manager. We were given such a warm welcome by every single member of staff and were greeted personally by the hotel manager Lola. Everything was explained to us in detail (even in German, as Lola speaks German). We had a large, spacious, modern and extremely clean room. The food that we enjoyed there in the morning and evening was unbelievably delicious. Absolutely fair in terms of price and just particularly tasty and good. For us, this was the very best hotel in a total of 4 hotels on our 3-week trip to the Maldives, even though we stayed in a resort afterwards. We would particularly like to highlight the hotel manager Lola, as she even helped us with the transfer and contacts for our further stay on another island. We have never met such a friendly and courteous person before. We are also in contact with many other guests who have exactly the same impression of the hotel, the staff and the manager. Highly recommended and we will definitely be back!

This brand new hotel is extraordinary. The very spacious, well-appointed room, the ultra-comfortable bedding, the practical bathroom. The breakfast is very good. Mashumi a little too spicy for me.
The hotel is very clean. Care staff. The restaurant is so good and its chef works very qualitatively. The fish burger, I loved it.
The prices are quite reasonable, there's no need for more. The food really well prepared.
Water was offered at the meal. It's really awesome. Keep that even if it doesn't help with the sale of drinks but helps with the ecology. Pleasant roof top in the evening.
The hotel is a few steps from the beach. The downside is the transfer prices. The hotel charges the prices it wants for the transfer from Male we paid $120 while the hotel next door charges $90 and the price of the premises is $20. This practice disappointed me and I admit that I would like to go elsewhere where I can get there by local ferry for $2. Omadhoo style or whatever. The island is beautiful. A supermarket nearby and a Shell restaurant.
