With my friends I spend 4 days on Hulhumale.Why? Near airport, nice beach. Not so crowded as on Male, and only 5 min. to Male by speedboot, if you at all need to go to Male. That is nice, small family leading Gesthaus, really good to short vacation. Mr. Abdulla Naseer´s wife and daughter are hotel owners, and most frequent works on reception desk. Mr. Naseer have own Vista Company with Island Safari Tours. They have free pickup/off airport services.Hotel/guesthaus is small, with only ten rooms, but on the bech. Rooms are nice but basic, but so comfortable for a short stay. My room have small balcony, and a view of the sea and the beach . The food was delicious, although we mostly ate what we are hooked on fishing.The friendly staff will serve you food where you want: for a romantic evening on the beach in front of the hotel, or you can eat in the restaurant on the ground floor, or we wanted the first day have a lunch on the roof. No problem. Otherwise owners are at the end of the preparation for the opening of a small intimate restaurant on the roof of the building. They invited us to dinner to unofficially open during our stay. Very nice and kind gesture.The kindly staff will set up beach chairs and umbrellas where you choose-all for free. If you want a short stay in the Maldives, I can highly recommend this inn / hotel.
Disadvantage: Mr Naseer, kindness can not replace regular room make up.
