Helen, gb1 night romance trip
Exceptional 10.0
although i just stay 1 night, however, it provides a wonderful customer services, including seamless transportation from airport to hotels, as well as another day for seaplane airport. also, it prepared the take away breakfast box to us at early morning 630am before the restaurant opening at 7am. besides, becoz i got lots heavy luggages, and need take care
LEUNG, hk1 night family trip
Exceptional 10.0
Great for a night's stopover.
We needed an overnighter in Male to catch the seaplane the next morning. The communication with the hotel was very good and it was a straightforward process finding their counter at arrival and all the transportation was smoothly arranged between the Somerset and our next destination resort. It's great for a short stopover so don't expect a 5 star type property with fancy facilities and views. The service was very good.

Mediocre with false advertising
I don't appreciate false advertising. When you advertise a fitness centre be sure to actually have 1. Not 1 a block away from the hotel. Air condition needs some serious attention. The staff tried hard to be helpful. Management need to pay more attention to detail.

Nearly Perfect!
Everything was great! Location was awesome. Nearly everything was within minutes by walk. Service was good, although there were a few times we had to remind them. Quality of the hotel was superb. Only thing we were unhappy about was that the bathroom had a leak and the hot water would run out in about 5 minutes, so we would have to take a very quick shower. Note that the gym is actually off-site and you will need indoor gym shoes.

Perfect for short stays. Cosy little gem.
The staff and customer service was amazing. The room was small but perfect for a business trip or short stay. We arrived late in the afternoon and it was Ramadan so nothing was open until after 8.30pm. We tried to eat in the hotel restaurant but they had a private funtion so we then tried to order room service but was told the kitchen was busy until after 7.00pm with the function. We understood but perhaps should of been given another option as we were starving. When we finally did get room service the food was delicious. We had a very early check out so the hotel arranged take away breakfast for us and a hotel rep even escorted us to the airport in the taxi. Male itself isn't the nicest area but the hotel is lovely and we felt safe and comfortable.

Spotted Towels
The towels were not very clean. There were dark spotting... definitely not a multi star standard.

Good 6.0
Overall Rooms were spacious, good for a family of 4. Bathrooms were fine but not great. The restaurant was good. Nearby not much to do. Only a place to rest before and after you come from resorts in other islands or after good day of diving or water sports.
Kailash, in1 night family trip
Exceptional 10.0
Easy access to the city.
The room was spacious and quiet, but no view. Inner city,not much to see anyway. Easy walk to all of Male. Great shuttle to airport.
