Great for a short stay

Pros: The staff.
Location: Right on the beach and not far from the airport
We spent a night at Planktons before going out to one of the islands. The hotel is in a good position right on the beach. Our room was on the small side but was clean and OK for a short stay. The best part of the hotel was the friendliness and helpfulness of the staff. We flew into Male at about10.30pm and had asked to hotel to arrange a transfer. We were greeted by friendly driver who carried our bags to the car. When we arrived at the hotel we were greeted with a smile, a refreshing towel and a cool drink. Next morning we had breakfast on the beach which was a nice experience. We were then driven to the airport by the same driver and he made sure we were at the correct check in point and didn't leave us until a representative from our island destination had taken over. Would definitely recommend this hotel. Airport transfers were only $7 p.p. each way
