right next to the beach”
For transit a night or two it's great. don't expect too much. it's a tiny guesthouse, but clean, with TV, no fridge. You can tell they try their best - to offer welcome drink, towel and nice breakfast on the beach (cereals, egg, sausage, toast & fruits). the beach is not pristine but will do for the kids playing sand, chill out, watch sunset. The neighbourhood doesn't have much to offer, but there are a mini-supermarket round the corner and a couple of nice restaurants around (recommend: The Keyolhu). 17 min to the airport (10-15USD)
Thank you so much for your review and staying with us. We always love to hear from our guest and improve our service standard. Thanks again for your comment and choosing Planktons Beach for your stay.
Good guest house, cleaned and located not far from airport. ”
Location on sea side with nice sea view . Breakfast is taken on the beach which is great. The beach is an artificial one but very nice, clear and white sand and long beach very safe too as there is a coral reef 100 meters far from the shore. Only constraint: no bikini allowed and a lot of jet skis driving along the shore.
Good transit stop”
This is a great option for a transit stopover on the way to resorts in the Maldives. A new area with some good beachside cafes, this is a comfortable spot to start and end a trip. Helpful service including transfers to and from the airport.
Hi Craig, Thank you so much for your wonderful review and description of the area. we would love to see you again in the Maldive ..
Lovely breakfast at the beach”
We manage to catch a beautiful sunrise for our 1st day in Maldives. Transfer from airport to hotel is smooth and a 10 mins short journey. We will sure visit the real Maldives next time not only for the luxury resort
Thank you for the room upgrade! Hotel was clean and the manager was very friendly. Breakfast is good too. can be served by the beach. Just a minor hiccup when we arrived at the airport. No pick-up was available because they were not replying for my pick-up request in their facebook page. but when we called them up via landline at the information counter, they arrived in less than 20 minutes.
A modern inspired, beach front, clean hotel. Good location just 10min from the airport and walking distance to ferry terminals. The hotel staff Ameen is very helpful and accomodating. We all had a pleasant stay at Planktons.
We enjoyed our stay very much in this hotel. The staffs are great and friendly and helpful. It's a great location with many restaurants within 10 mins walk. They can arrange many tours activities, just need to ask and email them. If you are not sure or have no idea what to do, then you can be sure to find help from them.
Lucky to stay here”
I am so lucky to book Plankton beach hotel be my trip to Maldives. Athif is a very nice guy help me a lot b4 I arrived he is so responsible person to reply yr mail very quick. He pick up you in the airport with the hotel car. And the hotel is around 10 min from airport. When I check in the hotel room I find the room is very clean nice room face up the beach and the bed is comfortable. All decorations is model basic on the price this is a good deals to get what I pay for. Next to hotel is a beach bar and restaurant so if u hungry after arrived u can easily get something to eat at night. I am check out the next day to the private island resort , the staff is so smart to prepare the early breakfast in front of my room and Athif is just waiting for me to send me to the boats pick up . So I got everything smooth and helpful during my stay. That why I book again when I return back to Male from islands I found plankton is the only friendly hotel to add on my trip with a beautiful memory. Thank you very much to Athif he did a great job to help me check out the time to Eriyuda and explain me a lot about the island culture, I will be back to plankton to see my friend again here . Love u guy great job!!!!
Just what i needed ”
I only stayed at Plankton Beach Hotel briefly, arriving late and leaving early. The room was clean and the AC worked well. The staff were efficient and organised a pick up for me to go to the airport.
Great location but needs upkeep”
We stayed for 1 night at Planktons based on the positive reviews and middle price range. This property has good bones but is in need of upkeep and updates. Pros -Location is a short drive from the international airport and across from the beach -Nice local cafes and eateries within a short walking distance -Assistance with the luggage for three flights of stairs -Room was spacious and clean & bed comfortable -Good size bathroom and updated -Kind welcome on late PM arrival -Management kindly extended our room for late check out at a price Cons -Hotel needs TLC and updates from paint, to building work to justify price per night. -One of our bed sheets had a large rip but yet still made its way onto the bed -Our room showed signs of wear and tear from burn holes in curtains, peeling wall paint, etc.. -Reception phone was always busy and had to walk down 3 flights of stairs to speak with the front desk -Felt rudeness at departure shuffling us out despite us being on time for departure
Thank you so much for your detailed review. We will take those oppositely and it work on those issues with our team to minimize. Once again thank you so much for staying with us.
Basic room yet expensive”
For over 200 Dollars a night we got a basic room, no breakfast, no free transfers, slow internet and TV with just 1 English Channel (CNN) - it didn't seem like great value to me. The positves were friendly staff & good location opposite a beach but it's hard to justify the cost.
Thanks for your review, and we apologize on behalf of our team that we could not satisfy your stay as expected.
great base for the night if you have a flight which arrives in the evening.”
Hotel was exactly what I needed. Transfer driver was really helpful.
Not the best place”
Our experience at Plankton hotel was not pleasant. When we arrived at the hotel, the reception worker didn’t smile nor gave us any basic information about the breakfast and other services. I had to ask every single thing. Plus he didn’t even look at me, he always looked other way. The rooms we got smelled bad, had mold in the bathrooms and there were old shampoos and gels. The sheets were dirty with stains and the towels were not only dirty but also had holes in them. The view both of our rooms had on a wall. The location is also not a good one. It’s quite crowded. Plus I can honestly say that this hotel is overpriced. We stayed at another hotel in Hulumale when just arrived to Maldives and that hotel was perfect and much cheaper. I chose this hotel because of the Plankton beach. We really wanted to see the Planktons at night but when I asked about it, he laughed at me and said, maybe sometimes. I’d like to notice that the only people that smiled were the manager and the bell boy.
We booked this room for an afternoon/evening We returned from our resort island, but still had hours to fill in before our international flight home. This hotel is at a great location near the bus stop and beach restaurants across the road. We were located at the top floor, there is no lift, but the staff took our bags up and down the narrow stairs.
Staffs were accommodating when I was asking if the sport channel were available. Nice room, unfortunately the the view was blocked by those trees (not that it really matter, actually!) I would def come again sometimes in the future.
Okay for 1 night stay for transition. Room is rather small and we are not able to open fully 2 luggages at the same time. TV signal is not stable so programs showing on certain channels will be intermittent. Breakfast is at the beach area so its a nice touch. Car transfer to and from airport at USD 5 per pax is rather expensive; feel that price should be based on per trip rather than per headcount.
Not too bad if it's just for a one night transfer ”
The bed sheets already had sand in them upon our arrival and the bed sheets were dirty !! Which gave my husband an itch on his body the next day. Overall, the hotel was okay. It would be more suited for a one night stay.
Hi Tan, Thank you very much for sharing your feedback, We would like to apologize for the inconvenience caused. We will discuss this issue with our team and management to improve our standard of service. Once again thank you for staying with us.
1 night in transit to Maldives resort”
We stayed 1 night, arriving at 11pm, departing at 6am. Travelled with 3 kids under 6, the management went out of their way to make our short stay great - really warm and genuine hosts. Would recommend if you want to stay near airport (10min taxi), all of which is arranged by hotel. Room clean and functional. Most of all, was the staff, really went out of their way to help.
Not a bad experience”
I stayed in Planktons Beach hotel for a night as my flight landed almost midnight at Male. Welcome drink upon arrival at the hotel. I find it more like an inn than hotel as the building is quite small. There are no lifts in the building but the staffs at the hotel will carry your luggage to your room so don't have to worry about the stairs much. I was given a free upgrade as i was told that the one i booked is kinda small for 2 pax. Thanks for the free upgrade! Room is not super clean but manageable. Room size is pretty okay for the price u are paying... Had to pay for airport transfer and no free breakfast included.. So might consider the price on the higher side for hotels in Hulhumale. No security safe in the room and no mini fridge. Something that can be improved. But overall not a bad experience. Beach is just opposite the hotel but water is not very clear. Nothing much to eat in the vicinity. bout 5-10 mins walk away from the marketplace and shopping mall area.
