My colleague and I stayed here around the christmas period for a few nights. On arrival reception was inviting and cool, with a warm welcome from the reception staff. Our rooms spacious and pleasant, with large corner bath and semi wet room area next to the bath for the shower, all very nice. Balcony which is aircraft spotters paradise, and can be noisy even with the doors closed. Good English tv selection available. Coffee, kettle and a large selection of really nice teas, and standard minibar drinks and snacks, which I didn't think were particularly overpriced (not when compared to Europe)..... But ooooh my - those pillows are so firm they could be used as boat buffers!!! Aircon works but noisy..!
Yes you can buy a beer in this hotel and the bar and pool bar are both very pleasant, as was the service provided by the staff. Drinks reasonable prices as was the food. Can't comment on the main restaurant as only ate in the bar, which was just ok....!
There is a regular complimentary ferry that takes you across to the Capitol. I would highly recommend this for dinner as we found some really nice places to eat, and was really good value, remember its dry so don't even ask..!
Breakfast on the 4th floor, great views of the sea and Male, good food selection and quality. They need to provide some water as well as juices at breakfast, I did ask for some sparkling water but was told I would be charged, And at $477 USD per night I thought that to be a bit of a p!$$ take!!!!!! And as I finish on the subject of charges, they do for the internet also, which I must add that is about as fast as my old dial-up from the late 90's during the day. Good news though if your suffering from jet lag and awake through the small hours of the morning, it is marginally better. Will never conference, Skype, or stream....! Don't pay the extra would be my advice there.
In summary it's an ok hotel but so overprice monopolising on a captive audience it's spoilt. There's better and cheaper options on Male itself.
Enjoy the Maldives...
