Clean & maintained well with a great selection of drinks & snacks in rooms. And of course my favourite...the roof top pool! One of only 2 in Male! And they are also very reasonably priced!

The hotel was clean and amenities were adequate enough for the price. The staffs were all helful but would love to mention the Bangladeshi housemen whose name i dont remember. But the default is the satellite connection always use to go off. No wifi .. i had to buy a dongle to get my work done.
