Hulhule Island Hotel
Ranked #1 of 1 Hotels in Hulhule Island
Reviewed 19 July 2014 via mobile

Really the only positive with this hotel is that it is the only hotel that you don't have to take a boat to. But honestly the ferry ride to Male is frequent, cheap and convenient and for our next visit to the maldives there is no way we will ever stay here again .
Like other reviewers I found the reception staff rude and unhelpful, the wifi charges of $30 per 24 hours are ridiculous, the rooms even the deluxe option are at best average (we stayed 3 nights, 2 at the start of our holiday and 1 at the end) and the room at the start was ok but at the end it was dirty, the tv didn't work and neither did the internet. I'm not even sure the staff at the pool side bar are still breathing and don't expect to get good service or a smile or any other type of interaction and as has been mentioned by others I found the hotel greatly over priced in all aspects for the service and standard of accommodation you will receive.
On the positive side they do have a good shuttle bus service to the airport and boat service to Male so getting away from the hotel is no problem but if you have ANY other choice I would stay somewhere else!

Been here 4 times for work got no choice but to be put in this crap hole.

1)The RUDEST receptionist ive ever encounter, each of them on different shifts has an attitude.
U cant ask them any questions as they give u the 'u are stupid' look & even if u ask them anything nicely with a smile they dont give a damn to smile . The women named Thaga didnt even bother to look at me when i talked to her

2) Bedsheets gives u itches the moment u sleep on thier bed

3) STicky floor

Please just sleep at the airport if u have any transit.
I never got so pissed with any other hotel before.

For transit or short business trip. This is the best option available.

I have been to male more times then i can think off mostly for business. And out of all the other transit hotel this one is still the most convinient one.

Its expensive tough for what it offer, room and food very basic.... Internet sometimes very slow.

But for transit its easy, free shuttle to airport every 5 minutes....and fast boat to male from hotels own port its handy.

Most people complaint becouse they come here for holiday..... This is a transit hotel , make sure your holiday is not in male but in the 100 other islands resorts and u will be fine.

We were leaving the Madives on a late flight and had some hours of layover at the airport, as we heard of the option to use the facilities of this hotel we thought its a good idea to take a shower and rest. Unfortunately we were very disappointed, the prices were completely overpriced for what we got. You can sit in the lobby which is not overly inviting (very warm and quite busy as a lot of transit guests will sit around there). The main reason we chose the package was to take a shower and fresh up before our flights. You have to walk the pool, queue up for a pool towel and use the pool showers which were maybe hostel quality... Very warm, humid, dirty (mouldy and lots of hair on the wet floor inside and outside the shower cubicles), no hairdryer and not appealing at all. As amenity you can use an "all in one" shampoo and shower gel from a dispenser fixed on the wall. Would have expected a little more for so much money... We also had a 10 minutes massage included which was very nice, however the spa team was quite busy and we had to wait a while and take our treatments one after the other because only one therapist was available (very polite and professional though). We also opted for and internet package at USD6 for two devices, which worked for about 15 minutes and then could not connect again even after several trys in the lobby. Drinks at the pool bar are also way overpriced, I think it was USD6 or so for a water. It took some time to find a table around the pool in the evening, since there were not so many guests but tables didn't get cleared up and they were full of old glasses, bottles etc. If you have some transit time, better go to Male and spend your time there, for the money you spend for one of the cheaper packages just to get a shower you can already find a clean room with your own - clean - shower in Male. Would not go back or recommend this place.

Room was clean, comfortable, well laid out. Liked the daily fruits, mineral water, and coffee making facility. All were clean and well maintained. Room finishings were nice, the greenery touches were ok but should have been watered a little. The view was great facing the main island, Male. The small stretch of sandy beach, coral stretch, pool and gardens were pretty simple and nice to relax, beach out, snorkel or swim.

Room service was great. Good food, nice choice. Buffet breakfast had a wide range and nice good food, with a great view from the rooftop.

Airport and Male island was easily accessible with the shuttle services, boat and van, a complimentary service. This must be the reason for the high prices, extended checkout is somewhat ridiculous. Also noted packages to remote islands and activities. Didn't try them though. Overall, the room was nice, view was good, food was great, access to airport and Male was superb. rates were expensive, but life aint cheap in the Maldives.

Waiting for planes in male is a not going to be fun or painless. The hotels that provide day rooms are way over priced for anywhere else in the world. This hotel is run down expensive un helpful and will charge you for anything and everything but it still may be better than what else is on offer. If you are staying overnight go somewhere else
