    No sleep till you leave

    This was a stopover hotel before our transfer, we chose a sea view, 4 star hotel. We got a middle of an alley city center, with a view of a massive megaphone 10 foot away which blasted every few hours. The transfer was good, the room small but good, the staff were good especially when asking about ear plugs :-( Breakfast was ok. Adhan i love but not when so close BUT no sleep which is the point, worst hotel stay i have ever had. Do not get a room on the 3rd floor!!

    Overnight stay waiting for the rest of the group, and to join our live-aboard. Selected the Samann Grand based on favourable Expedia reviews and was not disappointed at all. Wonderful hotel with great staff. Almost choose elsewhere to have access to a pool. Went for a drink to that hotel and was very glad not to have been swayed. The Samann Grand is nicer. Secure a high floor if you prefer a melifluous call to prayer.

    The room was stunning. I had a huge shower and the decor was wonderful. The service i received from all staff was brilliant and Ali was extremely helpful. After a week on a boat I very much enjoyed the air conditioned luxury. Easy to get to from the ferry terminal too. Excellent!

  • 8.0.Very good

    This was a perfect airport stay for one night the hotel is lovely modern and clean. The local area is pretty busy and noisy and can be overwhelming but worth a quick walk around. Our advice would be to eat at the hotel as it’s reasonable and nice food and we struggled to eat anything locally. Staff made us feel very welcome the prayers are not too bad in the morning either.

    Boutique Hotel close to airport for ease of trans.

    Over night stay en route to stay on one of the islands. Hotel staff arranged transfer and ensured we knew timings. Made sure we were in the right place to book in at airport. Very pleasant new boutique hotel. Has mosque across the road so be prepared to be woken for early morning prayers. Ear plugs are provided. Second mosque being built in front of hotel. That aside I would still recommend. Photo shows new mosque being built and the airport is across the water.

    Little Gem

    Super friendly staff and such a huge welcome. Great little gem of a hotel so convenient to everything. Nice interior design with various wood effects and design. So comfortable and clean and a great restaurant upstairs.

  • 8.0.Very good

    The hotel is overall satisfactory but in my view too expensive. The rooms are small (as most hotels in Maldives are apart from the resorts), and the amenities were basic. The wifi is unreliable and limited to wifi tickets that don't last long so you end up forever asking for more tickets each day. The restaurant was okay but is really too expensive for what you get. A basic evening meal will cost around 40 usd+ per person which is really too much for what is essentially a 3 star hotel by most standards. The staff are very nice and helpful, I really would have no issues with the hotel if the nightly rates and restaurant weren't so expensive. It's a hotel you'd be happy with if you were paying 80usd / night as a maximum. I was paying 150 usd per night! I hope they reconsider their rates as I wouldn't mind staying there again but certainly not at the current pricing structure.
