          Swim with sharks”

          Pretty good house reef. Schools and schools of colorful fish and we even encountered 3 reef sharks swimming together during one snorkel. The beach villas were basic but adequate and comfortable and only steps away from the beach/waterfront. Good buffets for half-board.

          Fantastic stay”

          We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Bandos. Transfer very efficient and it is only 15 mins by boat from the airport. At first, you may get a bit disappointed as it does not have the look of the extremely expensive hotels in the Maldives with water villas etc, and the rooms look a bit dated. However, don't be put off by this. For the Maldives Bandos gives you a very high value for the money and you dont spend much time in your room anyway. The hotel comprises the entire island and is extremely well-kept by its many staff. Housekeeping service twice a day. Complementary water in your room every day and you can ask for more if you need it. The beaches are wonderful, clean and the coral reef is (unlike many other islands) within swimming distance, so you dont have to book excursions to see wonderful marine life. You never get the feeling that the hotel is full, as the rooms are well-spread out and everybody can find a small stretch of beach with a few lounge chairs. Buffet was excellent.

          great experience and value for money”

          Bandos is very near Male, only 15mins speed boat away from airport ferry terminal. It is a full facility resort, besides the usual there's also a football field, volleyball court, tennis court and garden (which grows some of the vegetables and fruits served in its own restaurant, and you can bring your kids to visit) Staff are very friendly and helpful. Rooms are a little worn off but beds are comfortable and sheets and towels are clean. There're 3 restaurants offer a good variety of choices. Beach is not big due to overgrown plants near shore, especially on east side of the island there's not much spot for sun bathing. west side has some decent beach though. Overall a good experience for my family (with two teenage kids).

          All Inclusive package doesn't have much choice in Drinks specially if you are beer drinker. There is also another all inclusive package that we were not told about since it's only available to people who are staying 5 nites or more. Dining choice were also limited. But one of the chef made all the attempts to get us vegetarian food.

          Perfect 1st Maldives Experience”

          This was my first trip to Maldives, and although I can't compare Bandos to other resorts, I had amazing time. The room did feel like it was built quite a long time ago, but everything was in good order and air conditioning worked well. The only time I had a problem was when I saw a dead cockroach on the floor (my husband just put it outside for me, as I have a phobia) but that was the only time I saw it and I just accepted that that might be just how it is on the island... The sea was of course amazing and I enjoyed hours and hours of snorkelling! The variety of fish was just second to none and I even had a chance to see a sea turtle. The food was very good also, I opted for breakfast only deal, and bought lunches and dinners. The breeze bar, and the huvan bar was great for drinks and lunches, and Thai restaurant was also delicious and not overly expensive.

          Had a great and memorable stay at Bandos! The island itself is breathtaking! Nice and quiet. Staff are all friendly and very accommodating. Variety of food during breakfast, lunch and dinner. Other restaurants like Huvan and Sea Breeze also a nice choice for afternoon relaxation by the beach. Rooms are spacious and clean, beds are big and comfortable. Location of our room was just a few steps away from the beach! Anytime you can just go for a swim. They offer Tours as well if you would like to go island hopping, diving or snorkelling, etc. Would definitely recommend this hotel! Value for money every worth of penny. Keep it up to the Bandos Team!

          We visited Bandos for five nights as part of our honeymoon and it was pure luxury. The beach is beautiful, the food delicious and with so much variety, the accommodation was spacious and well thought out, and the clubhouse and gym were great additions. The gym especially was very well equipped. The dive centre is the best and most professional we have ever used and the dive sites and boat absolutely fantastic! The best thing about Bandos though by far was the staff. All without exception were incredibly professional, kind, thoughtful, friendly and very eager to please. 5 stars all round and we would love to go back :)

          Overall impression is top notch service with excellent beaches. Stayed in the jacuzzi beach villas which are spacious, luxurious open air bathrooms with privacy and well appointed otherwise. Pros: beautiful clean beaches, above average to good dining options, service is well above par, decent adventure options Cons: As with all of Maldives cannot bring in alcohol from duty free, and this is expensive. About $40-60 and up for a bottle of wine, $10 for draught beer etc. Dinners and lunches can set you back $30 per person before drinks. As long as you factor this in, you should be good. Also the island itself is close to male and you can see it in the far distance. If you’re looking for perfect visual isolation just be aware of this.

          Extremely easy to get in and out, friendly and helpful staff, sorted out a minor issue we had quickly. A slightly older and more crowded property compared to some of the newer islands in the Maldives, but the house reef is amazing. Excellent snorkeling: black tip sharks, sting ray, octopus, turtles, lots of tropical fish. Good value for money overall.

          The island is surrounded by coral reefs, and it is very good for snorkeling lover. Room is very spacious. The full board meal are also good. However, the all-inclusive package wrist band has sharp edges that cuts your body when taking bath. Removing it will cause some inconvenient ordering drinks everywhere.

          Positive Cleaner was very fast (while we are eating breakfast, they cleaned up for sure) and felt comfortable for whole stay. Food is very nice and enjoyed whole 6 days at the same buffet. Menu had been changed nicely everyday. Great experience for taking Sunset Dolphin Tour. all staffs were super nice and enjoyable. Negative Reception forgot to give us all inclusive bands when we checked in. Restaurant lady suddenly told us to go to the reception to take them. Villa is a bit too far from restaurant for the family with small kids. Stroller was not even free of costs although maintenance guy told me it’s free. Tea and coffee at main restaurant (buffet) are not nice at all especially during lunch and dinner time. Better order at other venue such as Sand Bar or Huvan. Wifi had been cut down the last 2 days at water Villa. I feel a bit wired every time I needed to say my villa number when I call reception.
