My husband and I chose the lovely Hotel Jen Male for our one night stopover before further travel in the Maldives. We were glad we did!

We were met at the airport by a friendly staff member who assisted us with our bags to get onto the Ferry. The Ferry ride across the harbour was brief, safe, and enjoyable. After the Ferry we were ushered onto a van for the short ride to the Hotel.

The check in/out process was very smooth, partly because we had pre-arranged and pre-paid our stay through our Travel Agent, and also because the Hotel staff were welcoming and genuine. The genuine way we were treated is important to us.

Our room was clean and comfortable and we slept very well.

Breakfast in the morning was a delicious buffet. We enjoyed this very much!

Afterwards we ventured up to the rooftop infinity pool to take in the stunning views. The Lifeguard on duty was friendly and offered to assist us with photos. We wish we could've stayed longer at the pool, but unfortunately we had another morning flight.

All in all, we recommend Hotel Jen Male and we would stay here again.

We booked a day room at Hotel Jen due to our late flight from Male. All email correspondence was quickly and efficiently dealt with and the room booked by email. Met at the airport by polite staff who took all our luggage to the speedboat where we were quickly transported to the hotel. Easy check-in experience and then up to the room which was lovely and as requested, had a sea view. Up to the amazing roof-top infinity pool where we had a very pleasant swim surrounding by the stunning views. Had an excellent and good value for money meal in the roof-top restaurant and then back to the room for an early evening nap before our well-managed boat trip back to the hotel. All the staff were lovely. Would not hesitate to recommend this hotel and we will certainly be back if we ever need a room for the day, or to stay overnight. Top marks Hotel Jen!

Room Tip: Higher rooms have best view - but we only slept there and you can get the best view from the infinity pool.

We stayed at Hotel Jen whilst transiting to and from Sun Siyam Iru Fushi as our international flight times were crazy!

The hotel staff were on time to pick us up at the airport (despite our arrival around midnight) and the speedboat ride to the hotel was quick (10 mins) and safe. The room was clean but the view over the derelict site next door not ideal. But as we were using this as a stopover this was not an issue for us.

Breakfast is pretty basic, and we did struggle to find something for our coeliac son (despite pre advising the hotel). We travel with our own gf food (just in case!) so could deal with this. The transfer to the seaplane terminal was again safe, quick (15 mins) and staff were organised and helpful.

On our return we had a chance to use the rooftop pool and eat at the adjoining restaurant prior to our departure. Highly recommend both!

Felt the service of sincerity and efficiency from the moment we were greeted by their staff at the airport arrival at around 11:00pm to the hotel check-in at 11:30pm to the serving of breakfast next day morning. It will be even better if a kid’s platform can be put beneath the basin to facilitate kids not tall enough to operate the tap. Will certainly recommend the hotel to our friends who may be interested in having unforgettable memories as part of their sea & sun vacation in Maldives.

We stayed here back in February this year on our first trips to Maldives Islands. It is a modern hotel in very cramp city, you feel insulated from outside world in the Hotel Jen. This hotel is owned by Shangri La group and it was very reasonable price. I think it is the best in the city. Looked at many of the options in Male city but this was the out stand one
