A relaxing paradise

Staff friendliness, varied snorkelling experience, peace
7.3
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.

The perfect resort for Maldives

When reviewing I make an effort to focus on the negatives of each place, to help with future improvements. But I can't find any negatives with Bandos! It was one of the best holidays I ever had! Location is fantastic (20 mins from airport, no need to waste a whole day getting there), the rooms were large and comfortable with strong AC and a big screen tv, excellent wifi throughout most of the island, fantastic breakfast and dinner buffet, and the most amazing beach and coral reef for snorkelling (I saw a baby shark! how cool is that? :) and superb staff. If I wasn't lazy, I would have made use of the well equipped gym or the tennis courts as well. The only thing I regret was paying $100 for an island hopping package. I would have rather stayed at the resort and laze around in the sun a bit more. I loved every bit about Bandos and I can't think of a better place to experience the Maldives.

Good for a short stay.

Location - house reef was easily accessed. Good beach. Food at Koon Thai was excellent and so was the view. Huvan had great views but we preferred to go there for the sunset and drinks.

A Maldivian Experience

Service, location and price

I stayed at the Jacuzzi Beach Villa at Bandos for 4 days. Service was exceptional, one of the best experiences for me in the Maldives thus far. Staff were prompt, proactive and friendly. The beach and waters were clean and clear. Food was very reasonably priced - they don't charge you rocket high prices even though you are captive on the island, and of course, tasty too. Location was very convenient as it was only 10-15 min speedboat ride from Airport and Male. This helps when the waters are choppy. Free wifi provided in the rooms too. Some areas for improvement would include the speed and availability of wifi in the rooms (had limited access in my bedroom loft and washroom area), variety of restaurant cuisines and furniture, bed and pillows were a tad old (but certainly not dirty). Great resort experience and kudos to the service staff at the resort!

Nice resort with a poor diving facility

Island, sea and underwater world

This wasour 3rd time on Bandos and we enjoyed it again. The only negative is that the diving school is really not customer focussed and their management is very stubborn and not into 'your diving experience'. They are more into your $. Also the dive instructors don't make your diving trip as good as it is and can be experienced.
