Surf View Hotel
Ranked #25 of 38 Male B&B and Inns
Reviewed 5 August 2011

Brilliant little hotel in Male'. The staff are all really keen and friendly, and will carry your luggage up to your room for you (which is great if you are tired- there's no lift unfortunately.)

Yes the rooms aren't massive, but for Male' they are pretty good and relatively cheap. Last time I was here they were refurbishing the lobby and it looked amazing.

All in all, an great place. Even the very expensive accommodation in Male' is on the small side, the island is only a KM square and 100,000 people plus expatriates and tourists are there! Everything is on the small side.

Tip for breakfast: Walk along the sun front to SeaHouse restaurant. All you can eat hot and cold breakfast, freshly cooked with tea, coffee, juice and water for 65Ruffiya. Even the president eats here!

Room Tip: Higher up rooms have the best view but there's no lift!

Comfortable and economical. No frills. Gives you a flavour of being with local maldivians. I do not enjoy the idea of going to a resort on an island and then being stranded there along with other tourists. This hotel was in the heart of Male, so enjoyed the local food and flavour of being in Maldives. Please bear in mind that this is not a resort.

The hotel is conviniently located near the artificial beach and the harbour. The rooms are clean with A/C and fan, but are not cleaned daily. Some rooms have great views for sunrise.

Some staff members struggled with english and failed to help us find a diving school and an interent cafe which were both just around the corner.
