The Good: The rooms are nice and clean. They are modern and bathrooms look classy too. Staff is friendly but the locals are not very fluent with their english.

The Bad: The food service is not really good and food in general does not taste very nice. Hotel is expensive for the location as well as compared to other offerings around this area. I recently read someone staying very close to this hotel for half the price which i paid. Location in general is not ideal for a Maldives holiday as this should be considered only a transit hotel and not for honeymooners wanting an extended vacation.

The Ugly: Complementary breakfast service is really really bad. It completely puts you off to whatever good this hotel might hold.

All in all it was an average stay which could have been better but for a few niggles here and there. I wouldn't personally go to this place again but if someone desperately needs a stop close to the airport on the way to someplace better then it could work.

Room Tip: Take beach view room as the other sides are town facing which basically means looking at empty or half full buildings.

We arrived late at night and didn't transit on our seaplane till the following day. I hadn't contacted the hotel ahead of time about our arrival so there was no one from the hotel at the airport when we landed. The lady at the airport lobby called the hotel for us and a man arrived within ten minutes apologizing profusely for not being at the airport when we arrived. In apology for being late he bought us papaya juice at a local bar. I felt a little sheepish considering it was really my fault (i still enjoyed the papaya juice though). The driver, who spoke impeccable English, made all the arrangements for our sea plane flight while we sat and enjoyed our drinks. Everything after that was very smooth from check in to check out. The staff is very friendly and most have understandable English Language skills. The room was clean and simple with a gorgeous view of the ocean. The free breakfast was average but still free. We had lunch here because our flight wasn't till the afternoon. The fish my wife ordered was actually better than the fish we had at our luxury resort at less than half the price. The driver came and picked us up on time and introduced us directly to the our liaison at the Trans Maldives Airlines, all in all the experience was completely hassle free, a nice quick stop on your transit to other islands. One last recommendation, visit the rooftop lounge. My wife and I spent half an hour on top of the building enjoying the view and taking fun photographs.

We stayed at the fern boquete for 2 nights on either side of our week on an island. We were using it as a transit hotel and for that it is fine. They picked us up and dropped us off at the airport at no charge, even making us a special breakfast at 6am ( basic but good enough) for an early morning flight. All of the staff we met spoke good English and they even chased up our sea plane flight times for us.

The rooms are new and clean, however quite noisy with other doors, reception and they have live music upstairs sometimes. We had earplugs so it wasn't an issue. Free wifi although not always reliable on the upper levels.

It is right across the road from the beach but due to their religion women can't swim in bikinis. I respect that but I had nothing else to swim in so we couldn't go. Which didn't leave much else to do. There is not much on hulhumale so i would really only recommend it as a one night stop over. Plus it's much cheaper than the hotel that is right next to the airport.

Also no drinking on the island, not that it was an issue but just a bit of FYI if that's something you may want.

We didnt stay at Fern Inn, but rather wish we had. We stayed at Elite Inn - Ok & Skai Lodge - very budget. We ate at Fern Inn twice & the service & staff was great. Staff really kind & helpful. The position of the hotel is alot better then most Male / Hulhumale hotels. Its new & clean & its much nicer then being on Male. You read that Male has nothing to offer, and yes it really has nothing to offer, rather stay on Hulhumale. Much cleaner & you wont get run over but scooter drivers.

We stayed here for one night due to arrival time being too late for seaplane transfer. It was ok, fairly new so the bathrooms are half decent. Was kind of like a fawlty towers experience, they forgot to pick us and 2 other couples up, the airport help desk rang them! Our room wasn't ready and we had to wait awhile for it to be cleaned- we checked in at about 11pm! And the half used hotel toiletries were left in the shower from the previous guests. But overall for the few hours we spent there Im glad we didn't fork out for the more expensive Traders hotel. Another bonus is that it's only a 5 minute drive from the airport. They tried hard though and for the price I'd stay again for a stopover only
