We arrived at Male airport without having made prior arrangements for a place to stay. We were referred to a tour operator who suggested we stay one night in Male at the Mookai Hotel before heading out to the Islands. This hotel was within walking distance to Male City Centre and 15 minutes away from the airport by speedboat.
Although the rooms were basic they were clean and efficiently equipped. The room had a flat screen colour TV with more than enough English Channels including the news channels. The beds were comfortable, the shower had hot water, the towels were frayed. There were no amenities offered apart from a small cake of soap.
The air-conditioner worked well. There were tea and coffee making facilities provided in our room. Just outside our room was a separate area to relax with sofa suites and a small kitchen.
We had a lovely view of the ferry and harbor from our window. The roof top pool was clean and well maintained.
The staff were wonderful - in fact all the Maldivians we met were friendly and welcoming.
Breakfast the next morning was adequate with cooked food offered as well as fruits and cereals.
I would recommend this hotel to anyone wanting a one night stay over that is close to the town and close to the airport and ferry terminal.
