2/10 Poor

This property owner said they don't work with Expedia. I had confirmed booking from Expedia but the guy at reception denied by booking from 8th Aug - 15th Aug. Expedia customer care did not even help me out with the situation as well. The guy at reception said we don't work with Expedia anymore I don't have any room for you, go find another place. Please don't book this property from Expedia, as according to this hotel they said Expedia to delist them 3-4 months ago. There is some fraud going on at some level, as Expedia said it's not the case, and the guy at reception denied my booking. BE CAREFUL.

overall good experience, albeit staff were creepy
everything was okay. except the staff, they are a bit creepy (the way they behave and look at you). I have difficulty understanding what they are saying. I know it is English, but the sentence structure does not make any sense.

Basic hotel for overnight stay in Male
This hotel is very basic. The staff at the front desk was a bit rude. The room smelled moldy but was overall pretty clean. It is a fine hotel if you have to stay overnight in Male before your seaplane transfer.
