The Beehive meet our needs, but it your typical European type place. The staff was very nice, we got in late from an international flight and they got us at the airport, onto the ferry and met us at the ferry to the hotel, so no complaints there. It is a small hotel, and let's say the photos are a...

Without doubt one of the most favourite hotels, i stayed during my time in Maldives (I explored others as well in Male & Hulhumale, but this is by far, the best)! Upon arrival I was warmly welcomed by the staff and Supervisor, but the surprise element started well before. I was like, lost in Wonderland when i landed in Maldives...

Let's start with the one positive they had first; the breakfast had good variety of food and drinks for the price we pay. We stayed here for 2 nights and booked one activity so we needed transfer/pick up for around 8 times (including initial pick up from airport). Out of the 8 times, 6 times no one was there to...

We stayed here on way back from maafushi. We spent one night here. The staff is very very hospitable, specially Ayesha. The rooms are large and spacious, well equipped. You can go to the local market, artificial beach and the market area in the evening. Do try out the local evening snacks (very nice, available at any eatery) and the...

Service was very very good. Everyone were so nice, polite and helpfull. Room was small and ok. Location close to a beach. We had a balcony but as a city hotel the view wasn't great. It feels that there was constructions everywhere.

We had an evening flight into Male and decided to crash here for a night. We had a boat transfer to our island resort the next day. Once we landed, we had to use the free phone at the airport to call Beehive and request a ride. The hotel was perfect - the rooms were nice and the view from...

The location of the hotel is good considering the fact that Male is so congested in the other parts. Since the hotel is located at a tri-junction, it is somewhat airy and well lit compared to the other hotels. Cleanliness is good but can not be said to be top notch when u compare it to the other same priced...

We recently stayed at the Beehive Hotel for 1 night, prior to moving onto another resort in the Maldives. We arrived late and didn't want to spend a lot of money for accommodation. The Beehive staff greeted us at the airport, arranged the ferry to Male, and took us directly to the hotel. The traffic is Male can be very...
