Very prompt communication, great views, helpful team and clean room. Been really pleased with choice so far. Great location on the beach front and helpful team. Location close to food venues and activities with system also in place for getting breakfast on terrace which is lovely way to start day.

Stayed with some friends and the room was not ready even when we checked in atleast for an hour and more. Didnt even bother to make up for it. Before booking the room they were very contactable. Later on no one even picked up the fone. Room was filled with mosquitos and all sorts of insects. Room doesn't look as clean as the pictures!

From the online booking right through until our departure, the staff at Plankton Beach were polite and friendly and we were very happy with the service. A friendly driver was waiting to collect us at the airport on our arrival late in the evening. When we arrived at the hotel, my partner, three children and I were given a welcome fruit juice, and after check-in, shown to our room which was clean and comfortable. Next morning, we were served a delicious full English breakfast and right on time at 8am, we were met again by our friendly driver to be taken back to the airport to get our seaplane to the resort where we were staying. He was chatty, informative and interesting to talk to. Would definitely recommend this hotel whether for a one night stay or more. Great location, too, right across the road from the beach. Beautiful sunrise in the morning. Something to be aware of. We hadn’t arrived in the Maldives with US dollars which is the preferred currency when paying or tipping and there was nowhere to exchange currency into US dollars at the airport. Fortunately, though, we were able to exchange currency into US dollars at our resort.

My husband and I stayed for one evening before our speedboat to an island. I read on Tripadvisor that it’s better to book directly with the hotel because they include roundtrip airport transfers with a driver to avoid waiting for a taxi at the airport. When we arrived we were told their driver was on a speedboat and we would have to line up anyways to take a taxi. They did pay for the taxi but after giving them our flight info over a month ago, I thought it was strange the driver was working elsewhere. The room we stayed in was their cheapest option (given we landed at 9pm and left at 8:30am the next day). The room was so small my husband and I couldn’t open our suitcases at the same time. The bathroom is so small that the shower is actually on top of the toilet and everything gets soaked once you shower. Included breakfast is cereal, coffee, eggs and a hot dog. For $112 Canadian dollars you can definitely find something that is a similar distance from the airport but not as small/overpriced as Planktons.
