2/10 Poor

Terrible / tiny room — comfy bed
The advertised picture versus our actual room where two totally different things. The room we booked was the size of a normal hotel room...the room we actually got could hardly fit a full size bed and not in great shape (though the bed was surprisingly comfortable).

8/10 Very good

One good night in Male!
Room was almost European sized, but it makes sense considering everything has to fit within the size of the island. The bed was very comfortable- we both commented on it! The room was VERY clean and the air conditioning was the best I’d felt in the Maldives. The staff were incredibly helpful and friendly. One even walked us to the boat we needed for an excursion to ensure we made it to the right spot. The staff truly made the experience wonderful and I would stay here again in a heartbeat! Thanks for the great stay Novina!

8/10 Very good

Limpo e bem localizado, mas muito pequeno
Equipe atenciosa e prestativa. Quarto limpo, mas muito pequeno para o valor. Área de banho não possui porta de vidro, água espalha para o quarto, que já é pequeno. Recomendo para quem precisa ficar 1 noite na capital para depois se deslocar até o aeroporto.
