"Accommodation is limited to 1..." Maldives Hotel Tip by Dick_Loudon

Maldives Hotels: 251 reviews and 394 photos

Accommodation is limited to 1 or 2 hotels in the capital, and generally, 1 resort on each island accessible to foreigners only. Many islands are off limits to visitors and are for Maldivians only.
There's usually one resort per island; they were built at different time and offer differing levels of comfort and service so it's hard to compare prices.

Unique Qualities: Most look like versions of Club Med. The hotel in Male is pretty plain and without diversions except for a small bar in an outside courtyard.

Price Comparison: more expensive than average
Directions: We stayed in Male in an older, fairly plain hotel. We also stayed on Vilingili Island close to the island with the capital.
Theme: Hotel
