Surf View Hotel

Reviewed 16 June 2013 via mobile

I would highly recommend this hotel. It's easy to find, it's near from the jetties and main shops and the room is worth your money. They have free internet but it's not much reliable, I was staying in the 3rd floor and net was very slow. And they don't have elevators, get your legs ready for the long way up if you're in the higher floors. They have all the amenities needed in a room, a reef, water heater, cable flat screen tv and a great shower room. Bed was fine although pillows were too small and blankets were low quality. The downside during my stay was that there was an event in the artificial beach and it was soooo noisy.

-Rooms are not well maintained and humid
Wi - fi is free but Limited internet access in the second floor, you need to go down to lobby for better connection
No safety box

-Good location, if you are catching international flight or moving to island
5 minutes away from jetty number 1
Friendly staff
In comparison with other hotels in male Surf View is affordable

I stayed three nights here. Hotel is conveniently located at the eastern end of the main drag right next to the artificial beach and not to far from the airport ferry jetty.

I have read other reviews about this hotel stating that the bed linen was stained and staff rude. I didn't experience that. On the contrary, rooms were clean with AC and staff helpful. I got upgraded to a room with sea view the last two nights.

The only minor drawbacks worth mentioning was the lack of an elevator which didn't bother me since I need exercise and that the WiFi sometimes was off the agenda.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with sea view. If you have problems walking ask for a room on the first floor since t...

I am really upset and suspect some dishonest evaluation from some tripadvisor members .Tripadvisor should quickly request removing of its stickers from the door of this shack. This hotel is unhealthy,unsanitary . Electricity and plumbery looks have been made by rookie handyman. Never see an hotel so dirty . Towels and bed sheets were grey. No protection between sheet and really rotten mattress .Walls and ceiling covered of heavy damp patches .Windows glass broken , hazardous stairs,etc.... I don t understand how someone could recommend this ruin. How possible to talk about cheap price ? Have a look on my pics . pricelist notably. Swindle only !

Dont expect to much when staying here as its only overnight accomodation while you transfer to the islands. The rooms were average. Not bad but not great. They were clean enough to stay in.
Service was ok, they carried our bags up the stairs and got us to the boat the next day to go out to the islands.
The water is amazing, clear blue and just has to be seen to be beleived.

Hotel is located near the artificial beach for a quick stroll in the morning or at sunset. being a local i understand the hotels in Male' hotels does not come with same standards as other city hotels around the world.
breakfast and other meals can be booked and there is a small roof top cafe for a lazy afternoon snack if you fancy.
with a slight renovation this hotel would be a hard place to miss.

the staff always happy to assist.
