We spent one night at the hotel after landing at Male in the evening and before heading to the resort in the island in the morning. The pickup and drop-off arrangements were great. Check-in procedure was smooth. However, the stay at the hotel itself was not as good - strong odour in the corridor, no hot water in the shower,...

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...

I was visiting Male for a week to work at the Maldives National University and had to find somewhere to stay that was reasonably close to the university (10-15 minute walk). After searching the internet, I decided to stay at the Beehive Hotel. And I am glad that I did! Mr. Julius Gabor (Hotel Supervisor) and his staff where absolutely...

As pointed out by others already, it does the job when u are in transfer to the islands because the service is set up for that with transfers included, but the room although fairly clean stank from the sewer. Hope we were just unlucky, but not very pleasant.

Just stayed the one night here recently. We were picked up from the airport late in the evening and delivered safely to the hotel. The hotel room was terrific. After a long flight the bed was firm but comfortable and the aircon a great relief. We had a late check out the next day as our ferry wasn't leaving until...

Unfortunately 1 star lost immediately when we weren't met at the airport...but after that everything was excellent for the few hours we were in residence. Warm welcome with a cool towel and drink, lovely room, on time wake-up call with room service breakfast and taxi back to the boat for the airport. If only The Beehive could improve its pre-arrival...

Pros: Staff were extremely helpful and the pick-up service was wonderful for first timers to Male. They knew we were catching a ferry to Maafushi the next day and not only arranged a late check-out for us but also arranged for a taxi to take us to the ferry terminal. The room was spacious and comfortable, more than adequate for...

This is obviously not a 5-Star hotel so I am a little amused by some of the negative comments. Most hotels are in Male are purely for transit so you are not expected to live here. As a transit hotel, this hotel does an amazing job. The pickup at the airport was good although we did not get a final...

We visited the beehive after our seaplane flight back from our amazing holiday. We had an early flight so decided to stay in Male then leave early for the airport. When we landed from the seaplane we were guided in a direction, where, after someone made a phone call we were escorted by a very helpful member of the hotel...
