If just want to have a short break in maldive without travel far, you can consider to stay this hotel. although no bikini beach, but is good enough to enjoy it. and scuba dive shop is always ready for diver!

      Nice hotel away from maleI have no complaints, this was the best hotel I stayed in while in maldives so far. The food is also very good, my favourite was the last item on the breakfast list, it was tuna in spices served with roshi (roti) an egg and coffee, it was delicious. The main guy at the front desk who is there during the day was very nice and helpful with any questions I had. All the staff were nice, greeting with smiles and great service. Value for money was also very good for maldives but eveything is out of my budget here.

      Nice breakfast, peaceful environmentThe hotel is on a small island (Villingili) 1km west of Male. Villingili has no cars so it lacks the chaos and noise of Male. The circumference of the island is around 2km - nice for a morning or evening jog. However, shops close early in Villingili. The minimart on the left of the hotel closes at 6pm and the bakery on the right closes at 7pm. The hotel is fairly clean and comfortable. Rooms are small (typical for rooms in Male, as I found out in other hotels). Towel and shampoo are provided, and so is a complimentary bottle of water. The shower looks modern (with digital temperature display) and hot water is fast. Wifi is included but is slow and intermittent (again typical in the Maldives as I found out in other locations). Breakfast here is better than other similarly priced hotels in Male. There's a choice of cornflakes, bread, pancakes, chapati, hashbrown, egg, mashed tuna, vegetables, fruits, juices, milk and tea/coffee. The staff is friendly and helpful. She helped me to book a tour on the Whale Submarine when I told her I have a late flight at night.

      Close to ferry, located in a quiet island, clean rooms and friendly staff

      The hotel is located in another island not far from the city. This hotel can easily be accessed through ferry and you can travel anytime, 10-20 minutes intervals. It is cheap as well to travel between Villingili to Male City. Most of the locals live in the island where the hotel is located. The hotel is also close to the ferry terminal. The staff are friendly and very helpful. They also help us with some cheap island tour. This is highly recommended for those on budget travel to the Maldives.

      Hotel is newly build, Rooms are spacious and well maintained. Attentive & Helpful Staff with good communication skills. Breakfast is nice,WiFi is good. Reachable in all area, strong in lobby. They have trips for various activities. Convenience Stores & Bakeries below the hotel. Welcome Drink was provided on Arrival. Hotel is located just 5 mins walk from the ferry terminal which is approx 10 mins from Male city with fare of 3.25 MVR. Ferries are regular and continuous. Hotel is located on a local small and very peaceful island with few beaches. The beach which is 5 mins walk from hotel is the only good beach on the island for snorkelling. Although fish variety is not that great. Hotel is nice to stay. However the island is not that great. No good places for dinning on the Island. Better than Male city for transit halts.

      Good location, silent, value for money

      This hotel is located in a close island to Male. Very frequent ferry trips. We stayed there one night cuz our ferry was next day. That's what many people do if you arrive on Friday. All in all, it was perfect for our purpose and a little more. Though I wouldn't recommend to stay more than 2-3 days unless you are there for business.

      Service, Smile, Nice local place

      I work for 5-6 star resorts around the world, and all resorts off of Male, for 15 years, I have had bad times at all hotels on Male when I need to stay a few nights. The only problem is Agoda needs to explain more that this is on a island a few min away from Male. and that you must take a ferry from the airport to male and then take taxi $3 to the ferry to this hotel. Other than this I found the people on this atoll great far cry from the money making Male island, I felt more relaxed than any other resort, people seemed like back in time peace and nice. Male is to busy ,and hard to find a place better than this resort on Male. Thanks for a nice quiet time Kurt Apel

      To facilitate Male preferred transit want to have a quiet beach, a 24-hour ferry to Male, Beach also has boat rentals, you can also go directly to arrange a wild island to snorkeling , the reception can do diving equipment rental. This island is a resident of the island, relatively clean, fishing pier, the beach a little bit dirty, but as beautiful as the sea.

      My wife and i like our stay in Top Deck. We stayed for 2 days before going to a resort and it worth its price. They offer a lot of activities, diving, snorkel, trips to sand bank, resort, or isolated island(owned by the hotel owner) and many more. I recommend this place for budget visitors who just want to have a place to shield n sleep + able to do activities the hotel provide. The owner is a very nice person.

      it's a walk away to the jetty, the island is small enough to travel on foot. Just take note that, there's no elevator in the hotel. However, I had this issue that I had to pay taxes at the hotel that amount to about USD$200. I understand that I had to pay the government green tax that was about a few bucks, but there was 180 of tax, for service? That was ridiculous. Other than that, i had an enjoyable stay.

      Recommend to pay a little extra to choose Deluxe type as they called (which was standard but bigger room, 17 square m), than the 11m room. And don't forget to request them give you the room you paid for, not the smaller. Insist.

      Located at a quiet residential island, reasonable price, clean room

      Overall is great for the money paid. However, either on Agoda.com or its official website stating there will be coffee maker provided in every room, we cant even find a kettle in our room. We have used the "airport transfer" provided by this hotel, it's actually a staff would be travelling with us in/out airport by public transport, need to transfer within ferry and taxi, cost not much but time consuming. Thou, the staff is friendly and helpful enough.

      Comfortable, friendly staff, quietness

      The hotel staff are very helpful and accommodating. The picture is a bit deceiving tho because the hotel does not face the beach so you cannot have a dinner on beach but the good thing is there is a very good restaurant nearby. Also the rooms are quite small even for delux--it's a budget hotel but overall a very nice and comfortable place to stay away from busy City if Male
