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...

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...

This was the first disappointment we got when arriving in Male. The hotel is rated as 4 star, in reality in Europe would be not more than 2 stars hotel. In my friends room the bed linen was not changed from the previous guest and was very dirty, in our room we didn't have hot water and most of the...

I want to preface the following by saying I'm a very picky traveler, with very high standards. Not only that, I'm a seasoned traveler; I've been traveled all over the world, stayed at hundreds of hotels, resorts and guest houses, been on multiple luxury cruises, etc. While I've had many great experiences, I've never felt it necessary to share my...

The hotel is exactly as stated in Tripadvisor. No unpleasant surprises. The hotel is very well situated with all the necessary facilities, its clean and well maintained. The staff are polite and friendly and provide useful advice. The best thing that we experienced was when a hotel staff actually search for us at the artificial beach just so that we...

We had good stay at the beehive, staff was waiting us at airport and made sure our trip to the hotel went smoothly. Location is OK, on the quieter side on Malè if you may say so. Room (501) was spacious and tidy. Breakfast was a tasty mix of local and western style. Julius the hotel supervisor made sure we...

As with most of my reviews, it's more about the food than the room for me. Julius, the hotel supervisor, was very helpful in settling us into our room. He wanted to upgrade our room to a bigger one, but we really wanted separate beds. He was very concerned that we'd find the room too small, but it was absolutely...
