        First ever worst experience in this hotel”
        The reasons we book this hotel is from Agoda and we seen the recommendation rate is Very high from Agoda. But we feel cheated after check in. 1. Cheated. We paid for 1 extra bed about $30 per night for my kid. However, there is no extra bed provided and the hotel said the sofa attach in the room is the extra bed. There is no bed sheet, no blankets provided on the sofa. 2. Very small room and Very dirty bed sheet. I doubt it is long time not being clean/wash 3. Very dirty location. Our room/hotel just beside the trash/garbage area. The environment has a lot of mosquito bite us. 4. Very rude hotel service. When we query about the cheated extra bed and ask for refund. The hotel refused and threaten to our family said ”if you not happy. U can check out and move out now!”. It is 12am mid night at local time. 5. Picture shown in the hotel website are not the real staying experience. This is my first worst trip experience search in Agoda website

        Ripple beach inn - A home far from home”
        Ripple beach location is just perfect in Hulhumale, near to airport and bus stop. Beach is just few steps from your room. The staff more like family, really helpful and warm. Excursions from here is recommended if your trip is on tight budget

        Avoid this hotel”
        Ripple Beach Inn was a bad experience for us. The room standard was so poor despite the price, the breakfast was bad and we skipped it and noice from building-construction started very early in the morning. There were so much rubbish on the street and every were and included on the beach,. We got all very sad and angry, that they do not clean plastic and other rubbish from their Island. But the view from the room was fantastic. We will never come back to Filfumale again. Fulfumale and Male is dominated of muslims so you can not buy alcohol only on the resorts on the Maldive. We also had problems using our Visa creditcard and a couple from India had the same experience, but Mastercard was no problem. Family from Denmark

        Really just a place to put up as a transit hotel, but not all that great for the price of transfer to and from airport. For that value, you can find a better place.

        Sorry to give this a low rating”
        I stayed there for 2 days on my way back from one of the islands prior to catching a flight, I feel awful giving this a low rating as only 1 thing really ruined my time at the property. All of the front office staff were the nicest people in the world, unfortunately the hotel driver was an ASSH*LE, my girlfriend was leaving 1 day prior to me and we were saying goodbye, he told the receptionist he would not wait for us and then insulted us and shouted at us, then threatened to leave our bags on the side of the road and leave later found out he was the brother of the owner and the staff could not say anything to him.

        Friendly staff Very helpful Just the down side, we booked for a deluxe balcony room but didn't get the room we booked for. But we were just there for a night so it was fine. The staff was very helpful to arrange the transfer with our Main stay resort. And the plus point was that we didn't know we had to arrange for transfer hence we did not email the hotel but they were still there to pick us up at the airport.

        Disappointing”
        I've booked an Ocean view hotel but when I reached the hotel, staff told me they have missed out my booking and hence the room we have booked is not available and asked whether they can put us at a deluxe room instead. Of coz they kept apologizing to us. As I was thinking they are a 4 star hotel, so I think the deluxe room will be nice too. When I step into the room, I just can't imagine that this a 4 star hotel. It looked more like a 2 star hotel to me. Everything was so run down inside the room. The headboard of the bed kept making cracking sound. There's no coffee/tea maker, the toilet is the worst. After flushing, the water did not fill up, hence I have to fill up the water myself. The room size is so small that I can't move around too much. Lucky I did not have many luggage with me, if not I won't be able to walk in the room. This is defineltey a 2 star hotel to me. Lucky I just stay for a night before I fly off the next day.

        Home is Where Your Heart Is”
        The staff and manager at the Ripple Beach Inn were more than worth the price of admission. They were so helpful and by the time our 16 nights were over, they all seemed like family. The hotel was literally a stone\s throw away from the beach. However, this beach does not allow for bikini swim wear. If you are planning on sun-tanning you will have to walk about 20 minutes south to the tourist beach. We were offered a bigger room when we first arrived but after a couple of days we realized that the room we had was good enough (and with a great view of the beach and sunrises every morning). We were also within easy walking distance of the business centre of Hulhumale and the airport shuttle bus and thus the ferry to Male City and the speed boats to all the resorts. In short I would recommend the Ripple Beach Inn. It wasn't love at first sight but by the end of our stay, it was tough to leave such a great group of people.

        nice bed and breakfast/nice airport location”
        I traveled in from Afghanistan and my wife from the US. I ended up in the Maldives 2 days before my wife so I was looking for a good cheap hotel. I was surprised here. The hotel was a 5min ride from the hotel. The staff picked me up as soon as a called. The hotel is more like a bead and breakfast. It sits right on the beach and. Has a little breakfast area. The staff are extremely friendly and once I settled in a chair out front, the owner started to tell me about the island, shopping and bus schedule that could take me back to the airport or to the airport hotel where I could get a beer. I did take that ride later...cost $1.30 and 5 minutes to get there. The neighborhood that the hotel is very friendly. The only language I speak is English but I had no problem getting a shave and haircut, not to mention some great deals in he local stores. The hotel sits right across a little street from a beach and an area where you can do all sorts of water sports at a fraction of the resorts.

        We stayed here for one night, before our flight back to Malaysia. We requested for a late check out as our flight is at night. However, the hotel was fully booked the next day. But the staff was so nice, they kept our baggage so we could go to male city to kill time and explore the city. They even gave us a free upgrade to the duplex with two bedroom and a jacuzzi. Definitely a plus point for them. Superb and friendly service. Recommended for budget travelers!
