Excellent Resort , 10/10

Staff were lovely, Heaps of things to do, Amazing view from our room
We had an amazing time at Bandos. The view we had from our room was fantastic and to be able to walk straight into the glorious water and snorkel was also amazing. We were half-board, the choice of food at The Gallery Restaurant was excellent. While we were there my 10 year old son got very sick. I cannot thank all of the staff enough for their help, especially the doctor and nurse in the clinic. They put both my son and myself at ease and could not do enough to help him. They had him feeling better in no time. So thank you Bandos , for an amazing holiday.

Bandos Resort

Staff, room and location
We had a nice stay at Bandos. The staff goes out of its way to make your stay pleasurable. The pool was under repair when we arrived so they offered us 2 free diners. We also got an upgrade because we are repeat customers. The food is nothing special and the service in the dining room is just ok. It is a lovely resort but definitely not a good value for your money. The price for a room is extremely expensive but everything in the Maldives is expensive.

Honeymoon stay

Clean, beautiful and friendly staff.
I booked a deluxe room and got a Jacuzzi beach villa as a free upgrade. We spent our honeymoon and had a really good time there. The staff were kind and helpful. Will definitely visit Bandos again.

A relaxing paradise

Staff friendliness, varied snorkelling experience, peace
It was the easiest transfer from airport to island you could ask for. Weather was very varied from thunderstorms and downpours to clear blue skies but sadly too cloudy to view stars at night. Restaurant staff were friendly, helpful and polite. The cost of an extra bed seemed excessive on top of quite high room rates and as a captive audience food and drink extras seemed high as well. We had the most amazing dolphin trip but I was concerned about the speed of the many boats in the vicinity of the pods. The snorkelling allowed close up experience with sharks and rays as well as a myriad of beautiful fish. Some visitors however did not show respect for the coral-standing on it, and throwing sea cucumbers around as "toys" (their word).

3 day short break to Paradise.

Service, Location and the Ocean.
3 days in standard room, which is spacious and like most rooms on the island only about 1 minute from the beach and ocean. The resort has a great location as only about 15 minute by motorboat from Male airport, so no need for seaplane or longer transit time. Huvan was the best place to eat and lovely location, with great views. The staff on the island are one of the things that made our trip, so nice, friendly and willing to do what ever they can to help. Thank you for the great services. The island is small, about 15-20 minutes to walk all around and lots of little spots in-between the local palm trees etc. to find a quite spot on the beach. The resort covers all types of waterspouts as you would expect to be on offer and the guests are a nice mixed of westerners and Asian.
