Stayed for one night before we head off to the resort. Perfect for transiting. We arrived Male late at night and the hotel staff was there at the airport waiting for us with a big smile!! Perfect way to start the vacation in paradise :) Most places were closed when we arrive and we ended up having a late dinner...

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 19 August 2016

Without doubt one of the most favourite hotels, i stayed during my time in Maldives (I explored others as well in Male & Hulhumale, but this is by far, the best)! Upon arrival I was warmly welcomed by the staff and Supervisor, but the surprise element started well before. I was like, lost in Wonderland when i landed in Maldives...

We arrived here after our week on an island resort for our last night and we loved it. The driver met us as we left our speedboat and we didn't touch our luggage again until it was in the room. The welcome at the reception was great, they had fresh coconut juice and biscuits for us all. The rooms were...

Before we went to hideaway island in February 2017, we need to stay one day in capital of Maldives. The Beehive is a good choice. The welcome coconut is just.. coconut. But the reception staff is very nice, she kindly and patiently helped us a lot, like city walk advices. The room is nice too, just ignore the balcony view,...

Airport transfers were smooth. They transfer you in a public ferry and then from there in a private car. The lady at reception in the morning shift...

The Beehive meet our needs, but it your typical European type place. The staff was very nice, we got in late from an international flight and they got us at the airport, onto the ferry and met us at the ferry to the hotel, so no complaints there. It is a small hotel, and let's say the photos are a...

Let's start with the one positive they had first; the breakfast had good variety of food and drinks for the price we pay. We stayed here for 2 nights and booked one activity so we needed transfer/pick up for around 8 times (including initial pick up from airport). Out of the 8 times, 6 times no one was there to...

We stayed here on way back from maafushi. We spent one night here. The staff is very very hospitable, specially Ayesha. The rooms are large and spacious, well equipped. You can go to the local market, artificial beach and the market area in the evening. Do try out the local evening snacks (very nice, available at any eatery) and the...

Service was very very good. Everyone were so nice, polite and helpfull. Room was small and ok. Location close to a beach. We had a balcony but as a city hotel the view wasn't great. It feels that there was constructions everywhere.
