I joined my friend for a short 2 day holiday. This place was excellent. We took the basic Silver Studio. Beautiful view of the turqoise sea. Room was comfortable. Breakfast had a good and tasty European spread but limited Maldivian choices.
We were in room 138 - and there was a small lagoon outside with a rocky border. Lots of fishes at the border. House reef was not so colourful but still had a lot of sea life.
The bridge to Crossroads was great as it was lit up at night. This attracted fishes, stingrays, baby sharks which we could see clearly whilst walking. Great for people who do not snorkel or dive.
We went to eat at Ministry of Crab and it was so delicious (although expensive) that we went there AGAIN for the second night. There is a convenience store at the far end of the marina to buy cheap snacks and necessities. Enjoyed my stay. I had a wonderful stay except A few suggestions:
1. Ensure there is tap outside the entrance to the block to wash our feet from the sand. It was messy to have sand all over
2. The fan in our room made a lot of ticking noise and we couldn't sleep - had to use the air-conditioning (we preferred the fan)
3. No place to hang any items / towels in the toilet area (as it was separate from the shower area)
4. Unaware that there was actually a cheap convenience store at the far end of the marina to buy snacks , toiletries - it would be nice if the staff could have mentioned this to us
Nice people, Nice room, Nice location and so natural.
I'm really appreciated for a lovely welcome parade.
Thanks to reception staff Mr.Ahmed Amro Diab. He's very polite.
Special thanks to all staff at The ministry of Crab, Hard rock cafe, Elephant & Butterfly and Mr.Tom Yum. And all food is yummy!
Thank you again for contributing to our group's cherished memories.
This is the place to be.
We checked into water pool villa and family room, both places we we were located in was beach view which had breath taking sun set view where we enjoyed a family time like we never had in any resorts we have been at.
Me and my family went there for 3 nights and it was the most hospitable time. Staff were really great. The food was amazing, the different types of meals that all of us enjoyed.
Kids enjoyed the music nights there. The staff and front desk team who was a great host who helped us the 3 nights we were there when ever we needed anything.
Recommending this place a family vacation place and looking forward to be here soon.
We had a great time in hard rock hotel. We stayed in a beautiful, cozy family suit for three nights. The room had everything we needed. The housekeeping staffs left us amazed at how they seemingly could clean our room without us ever really running into them doing it. The session restaurant is where we took breakfast lunch and dinner. The food was also all we could have wanted and more, with the breakfast buffet changing certain things every day to make sure it was kept interesting. All the staffs were incredibly helpful with any request or questions we had and greets with a smile.This whole place is based on music. Live music was played during our dining at hard rock cafe. Our kids enjoyed a lot in pool with a water slide in it. Through our entire stay SHIYAZ,CHARLIE MAKIF,CHELSEA MARTY,Pool life gurd and mannish from pool bar helped us a lot in everything. Can’t wait to come again to this beautiful place.
I am in love! At first, we were a bit hesitant to book at Hard Rock Hotel, since the resort recently opened (we were afraid of construction noises, etc), but I am so glad we did! This was, without a doubt, one of the best vacations we have ever had! The resort was a short 15 minute speedboat journey away from Male International Airport, which is always good. The hotel was amazing: spacious room (ours was the Platinum Overwater Villa Pool), extremely clean and mosquito free resort with awesome activities to do. However, to me, the one thing that truly differentiates Hard Rock Maldives from any other hotel we have ever stayed at is the staff! Seriously, every single one was unbelievably sweet and friendly; they made our stay a thousand times more special! Thank you Saif, Mufyd, Ikram, Jeyd, Karim, Raian, Brendan, Saeed, and Ahmad as well as Peter and Yaqoub (from the dive center) for everything. You made us feel at home! I can’t wait to come back and meet with the rest of the band!
