4/10 Fair

My room was filled with cigarette odor despite being a non-smoking room. The bed sheets had stains, the bathroom didn’t have hand soap nor toilet paper and we had to ask for it. The experience doesn’t justify the pictures, stay away.

8/10 Very good

Our flight landed at 9am and we were able to check in early... that was greatly appreciated after 48hrs of travel. This area of Male is still under construction but we felt safe even walking around at 11pm. Lots of food, cafes, shop options within walking distance. Would love to come back in a few years to see the growth of this part of the city.
