On our way to our island resort we had to spend a night in Male, due to the late arrival of our plane. After some research we opted for the Candies Hotel, knowing it would not be a top rated hotel, but expecting a decent hotel for the price ($100.00 per room) we paid. In addition it is Lonely Planet's...

Must admit I was quite pleased with myself when I found a hotel close to the slowboat jetty (main transport between the...

As advertised, it has air con, free wi-fi in the rooms and a pool; three of my basic requirements. However, the air con is so cold that i'm having to go outside just to thaw myself out- i can't adjust...

This hotel was a disappointment. Its location is pretty good - just off the main road, and very close to the Jetty. Unfortunately, the rooms were a terrible let down. First off - they are pretty small - just a couple of feet around the double beds. The bed was very uncomfortable and the blanket they had was really old...
