Beehive was our transit hotel hence we were only there for a night. A hotel rep met us at the airport and travelled with us on the ferry across to Male town where we were picked up in a car to head to Beehive. The hotel has a decent sized lobby with a restaurant. The service was great and we...

This is a quaint little hotel with the best service! Everyone was so accommodating and nice here. When we booked online we mentioned it was our honeymoon and that we would pay a few extra dollars (30 USD) if they could do a little something special for our room. Well they did... with abundance. Not only did they decorate the...

The Beehive met all of our needs for our one night stop over. We really appreciated the kind and attentive staff. Getting us to the hotel late at night from the airport and then escorting us to our sea plane the next day was above and beyond. We hope to be back!

Let's not really talk about the hotel, it's more like a transit place so nothing is really done design wise to make it look cool, and not much should be done to make it look cool... Rooms are clean and photos on the site are beautifying them because there are smaller, like an hotel room in Paris, so we are...

We stayed at Beehive for one night, as our flight arrived very late and there was no speedboat to our resort at that time. The airport pick up was very smooth, the staff were very friendly and helpful, they helped us organize the transfer to Maafushi the next morning. If you are looking for a place to stay in Male...

The Beehive is just an OK hotel. The room had a sink in it! Sink in the room instead of washroom. However, the room was upgraded to a different room. Another thing, the pillars are at very oblique angles and places when you go up a floor. They are right in the middle of a very narrow passage. Beehive is...

We stayed here for two nights before heading on to an island resort. The staff greeted us warmly, the rooms were very clean and neat and well equipped. If you are expecting a state-of-art, ultra-modern hotel, this is not for you. It's a small, local place with a great restaurant. The AC is good, the shower is hot and the...
