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 .

      Impressive! ”

      My aunt and I really enjoyed our stay @ Planktons Beach. Location is beach front. The neighborhood area is great. We loved the local Maldivian breakfast (It is spicy but we didn't mind coz we're use to eat spicy food in Tgailand). U can also have a continental breakfast if you prefer. Coming from the airport we just took the public bus to reach the place. It was just a few walk from the bus stop. I guess this time they offer free transfer in which we enjoyed when we checked out. The manager, Atif brought us for free to the ferry. The stuff were very friendly. On our second day, since it wasn't sunny so we requested to have breakfast by the beach. We also ask questions about Male and Villingili and we were good information. Thank you so much to the management and staff of Planktons Beach. We'll surely recommend this place.

      Location, free wifi, next to snorkelling centre”

      Great place for transit before heading to resort, Nearby the ferry port, easy to move around and visit local island, easy to get the bus too, close to supermarket, sourvenier shops, easy to get clean and tasty local food,( the one at the same row as the bank is good) , oh yea, there is a bank nearby, close to hospital, situated at a planned town, (more laid back compare to male city), mostly just government housing area, no big buildings,so it's quite clean, quiet and organized, 15mins to airport by land transport, 20 mins to male city by ferry, next to snorkelling Centre, room is clean, great staff - Bilal was friendly, hotel's owner is helpful and not culculative. They have bathroom/ toilet at the lobby if u check out and needed to take shower before heading to airport at night....hotel is facing the beach. For what I'd paid, I was satisfied.

      Planktons Beach Hotel is a great place to stay in Hulhumale, especially when you're in transit to or from the island resorts in Maldives. It is located close to the Velana International Airport and the hotel can arrange hotel and airport transfer for you. The staff was also very attentive to our needs and concerns. And, oh, we got upgraded from the Deluxe Room to the Terrace Room at no extra cost. That's Maldivian hospitality for you.

      Quick pit stop before the main event. ”

      Stayed at Planktons just for the one night while transiting to our main resort - this is common when visiting the Maldives. Some small confusion with the airpot transfer when we initially landed but all resolved. There isn't too much in the area surrounding the hotel (it's actually on a separate island to Male itself) but we did find a pleasant enough restaurant on the evening we landed. Hotel itself is pretty modern. We had a small but nice room on the top floor, with breakfast served in a private area. There were no lifts, so for anyone with mobility issues, do bear in mind when booking. Would recommend as a one-night stay en route to a private island, which is really the main purpose of the hotel!

      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.

      Great stuffs beach front - highly recommend this hotel ”

      My friend and me are so lucky to book this hotel and so glad to meet the wonderful staffs. We took the airport shuttle to come here at night time. Handsome manager Ameen welcomed us,upgraded FOC our room to sea view deluxe room, even bought fresh fruits for us. Amazingly we had breakfast just in front of our room with ocean view. Athif bought us for free to airport to catch seaplane. When we came back from prive island, Ameen was waiting us and taking us personally to male to show us the truth color of Maldivian life. We travel around the world and never meet hotel staffs like here. You guys are amazing!! Fantastic job!! We will definitely come back and see your guys again.Ines and Judy

      Nyc location and very cute hotel”

      This hotel is located in HuluMalle Island. This island is very good in term of staying in Male. We stayed here for our way to private island resort. This island us very much planned and spacious compared to Male. Very near to Airport so best fit for taking flight. Hotel own restaurant is awesome and must try. Overall best for one or two nights. I appreciate that I got an upgrade to terrace room.

      Airport stop-over”

      I spent a couple of nights before joining a dive live-aboard... Great option close to the airport and nicer than being in Male (in my opinion). Staff are really welcoming and helpful and the breakfast served on the beach was nice. Only negative is the transfer isn't included from the airport.

      Such a perfect place for a 1 night-stay before heading to the atolls. The driver picked us up and took us back the day after, he was nice and funny, and even helped us out with the seaplane check-in at the airport. The hotel is ideally located, no need to take the boat to go to Male, perfectly new and clean, great staff. Will def stay there again!

      Convenience Location & Friendly Staff”

      We stayed for 1 night after before our flight home, have some delayed with hotel car pick up from airport after our seaplane back to Male, waited for over 40 minutes. The way back from hotel to Airport for our departure was no problem. Apart form the delay with car pick up, overall experience were fine. Staffs were friendly. We'd booked the Terrace suite, nice seafront view & some space to sit outside the room under the sun. Room was clean, & pretty spacious with sofa in room; bed was wide enough. The hotel location is convenience for dining or shopping daily stuffs just walk less than 5 minutes; and about 15 minutes can reach the ferry pier to Male.

      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

      A quaint little hotel”

      Planktons Beach is a nice cosy little place in Malé. The staff was polite and attentive. The transportation charges to the airport were a rip-off at $10 per pax for a distance of 10 minutes. We stayed just on the night of our arrival and departed to a private island the very next morning.

      Just what we were looking for”

      We flew into the Maldives late at night, and weren't scheduled to get to our resort on one of the outlying islands until the next morning, so we needed somewhere to stay overnight. This was the perfect spot for that - close to the airport, and good value for money. They also coordinated with our resort, to make sure we were back at the airport in time for our speedboat transfer to the resort. The only suggestion I would make is to coordinate with the hotel before you arrive, to make sure the driver will be at the airport when your flight lands - we didn't do that, and were waiting around at the airport for a little while until the driver showed up.

      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)

      Good Location....”

      Overall the hotel was pretty average. Our flight arrived in late evening so we decided to book a night here before flying off the next morning to our island resort. It was on Hulhumale island, same as the airport itself and took about 15 minutes to arrive. The room was small but then again most of the beach hotels there were pretty much the same and we did not mind as we just needed a place to stay for the night. Only thing disturbing was that when we checked in, I told them to verify with my resort what time was my seaplane flight and the hotel staff told me to we should arrive at 10am at the seaplane terminal. We should get up at 830 for breakfast and they would send us there at 930. However, at 830 the next morning, they called our room and told us there was a change in our flight timing and that we should leave immediately. I assumed it was due to weather conditions or some other reason as we were hurried off into our car without any further explanation. It was only upon reaching the terminal when I was told by my resort folks that my flight had already left at 6am in the morning! In the end, my resort made preparations for me to get on the next flight with no other hassle. We had to wait for more than 2 hours thereafter and was extremely concerned that we could not get a seaplane transfer out. In short, extremely disappointed that the front desk at the Planktons had not verified this properly with my resort as it could have cost us if we did not get on our seaplane transfer.
