Excellent Resort for Family with kids!
Not very far from Male airport..Very good facilities and staff. Make sure plan well ahead for activities as there is a weekly schedule.

Great location, good for diving
We spent 8 nights on Bandos with Garden Villa. I went to scuba diving most of the time. I'd to say the diving center in Bandos is excellent and all staffs are professional. Special thanks to Hussain and Sivad for guiding me on most dives. For snorkeling, I don't think this is the good season to do it as waves are too heavy. My wife and I spent 2 half days on snorkeling however it was not good as expected. Food are good. We booked half board meal package so we had an option to choose different restaurant for lunch, all tasted good. Anyway, Bandos is highly recommended.

Great snorkelling
One of the best house reefs for snorkeling! Wifi very slow, but that's usual for the Maldives. Stayed in a beach villa (2 floors), no wifi connection second floor. Great great Thai resto onsite, must try, and very friendly staff

Great place, but top expensive transport
Bandos is a very nice island. We enjoyed staying there. However, speed boat transfer was extremely expensive, with no good reason for it. We also missed transport options to other islands. That should at least be included.

5th time at Bandos and still not tamed
This was our 5th time we visited Bandos and was as good as always. The only downside I could think of is the El Nini impact to the corals. Lets hope nature will recover over time!
