Avoid the Pool Bar!!
Exact same experience as a previous review unfortunately. I was over charged to the tune of USD$95 for drinks and food that didn't arrive or were I assume from a different customer. It was extremely difficult to dispute at the time with my only option now being a "charge back" with my card company. So, if you absolutely, positively must have a beer or snack poolside then I strongly recommend paying in cash as you go!! That is of course if you in fact get any service at all as there is practically none. This experience unfortunately left a very negative spin on what had been an incredible holiday prior.
The hotel is alright with a nice quite view of the sea , the health club / gym is great with Afsal and the instructor , he kept the equipment clean and Sanitized it regularly.. helped with abs work out and body stretching , was very patient to answer work out related questions!
Terrible customer service and incorrect billing charges!
This hotel is the only one on the island that sells alcohol. Due to that expect terrible customer service from all of the pool bar staff, high prices, and being charged for items that you never ordered. It will take over an hour to order food or drinks. If you are lucky you will get half of what you ordered without having to ask where the rest of the order is. Be sure to double check your bill before paying as they add items that no one at your table received and they will refuse to split the bill correctly for your table. Not worth the stop and would not recommend.
My Husband and I stayed at the Hulhule Island Hotel for a night before boarding our boat the next day. I have to say we had a really nice stay here. Our flight got into Male very early, we knew checkin wouldnt be till later but the staff were so friendly and helpful - they managed to get us into our room early at 11:30 and directed us to enjoy the pool till then. They then sent a member of staff over to us at the pool to let us know the room was ready. We had lunch by the pool and the food was very nice, the bar staff were also attentive. We had dinner at the "Coffee House" (its really a restaurant not a coffee house), we had Thai and Indian food and I have to say we both found our meals to be really delicious and beautifully prepared. Again the staff were excellent. The next day there was a shuttle waiting for us at the time we had planned with the front desk staff to take us back to the terminal so we could board our boat. Top marks! We started off our holiday relaxed and refreshed:)
B day surprise
I would like to thank to the Hulhule Island Hotel team especially to MR Jegan the front desk manager for the amazing surprise that they managed to pull out for a B day of my friend. I,ve stayed many times in the hotel, however the last time i was in another hotel and my friend stayed at Hulhule. When i approached to Mr Jegan with the idea of making a surprise for my friend although i wasn’t a guest of the hotel, he was very positive and very understanding. Him and his team arranged and decorated the room in which my friend will stay before his arrival, the hotel even made a cake for the occasion and kept me posted all the way on how preparations are going. They really genuinely care about their guests, and even if it is just a stopover i would definitely recommend this hotel. Great job done!
