Wonderful resort. Under rated

Accommodation, food , staff
Our stay at Bandos was Gr8. We stayed here for 3 nights after spending 2 nights at Kaani hotel at Maafushi. I stayed in a standard room and it was huge. The beach was at 25 M from our room. U get to see wonderful Corals and a vast variety of fish. I saw 3 REEF sharks which r gentle and harmless creatures of length half metre to 2.5 M. The staff was very courteous and honestly we have nothing negative to say about Bandos. The net was pretty ok also and there were times when it was down for some mins but we were OK with it. All the restaurants were Gr8. Wonderful ambience where one can have a sandwich from 12 dollars at Huvan to a 3 course meal @ 35 dollars. Mr Ibrahim the manager and Diana at reception are very professional people. I stayed at a 3.5 star before coming to Bandos and believe me it's worth every penny. BEST VALUE FOR MONEY AT MALDIVES and no wonder they were absolutely FULL. Although the resort was full but BANDOS has been planned in a way that u can still get pvt places every where with hammocks's just like as they show in the pics. I have read other reviews where BANDOS was criticised for over charging. What people need to understand is that the country thrives on basically tourism. I didn't mind paying 3 dollars for an extra bottle of water. For those on a budget holiday but want it in 4.5 star style then Bandos is the option. Also the people around were mostly couples and with young children and were family oriented unlike Thailand where people go with BAMBOOS. Ugh.

Wonderful stay in Bandos

Near location to airport, good food at Huvan, awesome view!
My whole stay at Bandos was perfect from start to end. The transfer was smooth and punctual. The staff were all friendly and full of smiles. Ibrahim really arranged my whole trip well. I reached the hotel some 3 hours earlier than the check in time, but the hotel took care of my luggage while I can go loiter around the island taking pictures and enjoying the scenery. They even managed to get ready my room by 1pm and allowed me to check in earlier. I requested for a room change by my third day and this was again handled very smoothly by the management. A confirmation call and letter was also sent to my room. Food wise - the buffet meals were good but it became repetitive by my third day stay. Hence, I opted for a lobster dinner at Huvan with USD20 meal credit. The restaurant staff were very attentive and kind to arrange my dinner at the beach with the necessary decorations. They even lighted candles in the form of heart shape all around my table! How sweet that is! The dinner was very exquisite and delicious! Snorkelling - the house reef directly in front of rooms 176-203 were the best. I saw many fishes, a sea turtle and had a close encounter with a 1-metre-long shark! To view a whole school of baby sharks, you can go to Koon Thai where these sharks are always there under the balcony. Excursions - I went for dolphin cruise which was very much worth it. The sunset view was awe-inspiring! I saw many dolphins swimming just beside the speedboat. As I was sitting by the side of the boat with my legs hanging out, the dolphins were just below my legs! I had fun looking at all the dolphins somersaulting and jumping! Go with Bandos, you will not regret it!

Views & scenery, the beach and plenty of activities to do
Very enjoyable and relaxing. Missed out on the fishing & bbq trip as this was the day we arrived. Male disappointing but the island itself was excellent although a week was long enough on one island

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.
