        Great option as a transit hotel”

        Friendly, helpful

        I really liked Loona hotel. The staff is super sweet and they have everything set up for you on your arrival. Our favourite was "the boy" meeting us at the airport. When you have no expectation whatever and you land at night time in Male airport you might feel a bit insecure of things and taking in the environment, but when we met up with "the boy" i felt relaxed. He explained that we had to wait in order to get our transport to the hotel which he apologized for but was of no problem at all for us. There is a reason you might have to end up waiting for it. Only taxi-companies are allowed picking people up at the air-port and there are not many of them, so imagine yourself having a couple of airplanes landing at the same time and a lot of the passengers will have to have a taxi.... Loona is a small hotel on the airport island mostly serving transit passengers on their way out to the resort islands. You can tell they have really put an effort to make the rooms comfortable with an eye for details. The room is clean, the bathroom is clean. And yes, it looks exactly like on the pictures here. The best part was the service and how they informed us of our departure and making sure we would find our way to the right resort "booth" the following day when we were leaving to our resort. For the money spent on Loona hotel, it was worth it. This is what you pay and this is what you get. This is Maldives. Great job and a big thank you especially to "the boy" at the airport.

        Nice place next to Male airport”

        Clean beach just outside, female staff, close to airport

        We were staying in the hotel for one night - just to get some rest after the flight. This hotel is nice to spend time if you are coming or leaving the country. The female staff was very helpful and English skills were perfect. They even contacted our other hotel and arranged when we shoud show up at airport for the pick up. We had a little problem with our room's bathroom, so the room was changed on the spot. However male staff is lack of competence and english language skills. We also liked the beach, wich is out of the hotel. However you cant were bikinis, because its public beach. Anyway we saw couple polish who were not caring about this restriction and were swiming in the sea. Everyone talks about the taxi prices -for us it cost 32 dollars per person. But you can also take a bus , which cost a few dollars. The bus stop is close to the hotel. In general i would recommend staying in Loona hotel.

        "Great location but small room "”

        Located right in front of the beautiful,safe,clean blue water-white sand beach.

        We a family of four visited Loona Hotel in Dec 2012. We stayed for 5 days. The hotel is located right on the beach. It is the best hotel in Hulhu Male. The Hotel is well furnished and clean. Since there is not much land available on this island, all the hotels are considerably small. Hence most of the rooms are smaller than regular. But for its beautiful location,all this will not matter. The Hotel staff is wonderful,hospitable and ever helpful.The Manager was patient and dealt with all our requests. He even helped us plan our holiday. They made us feel at home. The breakfast provided was good- usual continental fare(breads,cereals,fruits,eggs,sausages etc) Lots of local restaurants,shops and taxis available close by. Ideal,peaceful Maldivian Holiday.

        close to airport, the staffs very friendly and helpful

        It was pleasant to stay in Loona hotel. We arrived late that night, and there was people to pick us up in the airport. That was good. The hotel room is OK, given the price. The staffs were kind and helpful. We got a lot of help from Shujaav Ali, one hotel manager there. As we couldn't take the early morning seaplane, he helped us to keep contacting the resort and seaplane company, and finally managed to re-schedule another time slot for us to take the seaplane. We really appreciated that. The staffs in the hotel cafeteria were also very kind. We went to breakfast late, but he still served us the food and coffee. The hotel area was very quiet, so was good for sleep.

        Helpful staffs, Beautiful Room”

        When i arrived at Ibrahim Nasir International Airport, i got very surprised because there were no taxi stand by at the airport. I didn't arrange transport with my hotel because i expect there should be any taxis stand by there. Then i went to the airport information counter and the staff suggested me to make phone call to my hotel for free, and my hotel said they will call taxi for me and told me wait at the information counter. It was 11.00PM and raining, i wait for like 1 hour for the taxi, but it's okay i understood because it's already late night, raining, and i didn't arrange the transport before. The taxi cost 10 USD, and took 15 mins to arrived at the hotel which located at Hulhumale island, nearest island from airport. The hotel is located in front of the beach, has a well decorated room although it's very small, can barely walk inside the room. They served english breakfast, some breads with omelette and fresh juice. Overall it was a very good stay. P.s. : Hulhumale beach is crowd-free, its beautiful white sandy beach is a lil bit under-the-radar and underrated

        Close to airport, restaurants and shops

        We stayed it this hotel because of its proximity to the airport. Hulhumalé is a 10 minutes drive from the Male International Airport. Staff is very friendly and helpful, the rooms clean but rather small and the area is very quiet. It is good for an overnight before heading to another island. The hotel offers all the amenities that you would expect like satellite TV, Wi-Fi etc. Breakfast is okay.

        Good location beach front and near bus stop. If you looking for one or two nights before moving here is good choice. Hulhumale is local residents area so no bikini at all if somebody tell you can wear bikini is not true police will be come soon. From Male airport just take bus 10mins and they have bus every 30min. About hotel is renovated and room abit small but fine because you not stay all time. In front of hotel have many attractions but expensive. Coffee shop near by is good (Family coffee shop). Restaurant around there is also expensive. I think this island kind of local tourist place so everything expensive. Breakfast is okay. Staff are friendly and helpful.

Staff at hotel friendly and helpful and offered to organise diving/snorkelling/sightseeing excursions during stay. Lovely view of beach from room which was clea and adequate for 2 night stay but maybe bit small for longer stay. Good value for money before/after going to resort/dive boat.

        I had to stay at Loona Hotel because I arrived to Male late night so it was impossible to me to go to the Resort in one of the Atoll Island. We found the crew very nice and polite. The room decoration was not the most beautiful but was cozy and had all the necessary toiletry if you forget your own. Has cable TV that I found good and the breakfast was not that good. But the front beach was absolutely marvelous.

        we stayed in loona hotel for a night as we arrived in the maldives a day earlier than expected. the hotel was on the same island as the airport, which was nice as we wished to be close (10 min car ride). don't expect 5 star service or food, as it is transit hotel. the room was a bit small but the bed was comfortable. we were just looking for a place to rest/wash up before heading out to our resort the next day. breakfast was included, but nothing amazing. toast, cereal, chicken sausage, hard boiled eggs, orange juice, coffee. it was just some food to fill the stomach.

        stayed for one night as we were heading to the resort in the morning. the owner / manager is a really nice guy and he helped us a lot on our first time to the maldives. when we arrived at the airport they had someone waiting for us and were shown to a taxi, ( waited a little and shared it but there are not many taxis there!!) took to the hotel. it was only a stopover, but they had arranged with the resort for the timing of our seaplane the next day and took us back to the seaplane terminal and checked us in. its less than half the price of the other main hotel and the service is much more friendly!! book with confidence

        Decent hotel for an overnight stay”

        Close to the airport, Good service, Nice staff

        Loona hotel is a good choice for one night stay before you head out to your beach island resort. The staff is very friendly, the pick-up boy is very helpful. From airport pickup, transport to hotel, send back to airport, communication with seaplane ticket, check-in are all excellent. The only downside is the room itself, it is well decorated but a bit small given the paid price. The internet is merely workable, but TV did had a lot of channels. Free bottles of water with average breakfast, if you are not too picky and under budget, loona is not bad for just one night stay.
