Buffet breafast, lunch and dinner was great and the provided bottles of water in our room and also at the table when we ate. If we wanted refills we could just ask and they will provide. Other drinks is very very expensive as the currency is in $US. Alot activites can be done and the snorkelling was a highlight for us all. Staff very friendly and always accomodating to our needs. Games room was great for the kids- pool, table tennis, squash courts and a longe room to relax and watch TV,. Great Resort

          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.

          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!

          Pros and Cons”

          Pros - Reasonable value for the money. Near the airport. 10 minutes in a speed boat. Surprising nice house reef. I could see various species of tropical fish in the house reef. Later, my family had extra snorkeling excursion to see more though, most of the fish were however what we could see in the house reef. - The island has several good facilities for family members, e.g. table tennis, badminton/tennis court, billiards and game room in addition to the fitness center so you can find something else than the sea and spend time there whenever feeling bored of the sea. Cons flying to/from the city and other speed-boat passing the island often left exhaustion emission. Breakfast is a bit monotonous as it serves repeat food. - Snorkeling excursion was a bit of disappointment; perhaps we expected too much. On a check-out date, the resort staff with luggage cart arrived at our room 20 minutes earlier than exact check-out time to prompt us to move out - annoying.

          Fabulous Maldives option”

          We just returned from 5 nights at Bandos and loved every minute of our time there. The price we paid for two Garden Villas couldn't be beat and the location within a close boat ride to Male was perfect. We never would have know we were that close to Male if we didn't walk around the island every night and see the lights. Because of its proximity, there were a lot of mega-yachts anchored nearby and one of them was particulary LOUD (thumping disco music until the early hours of the morning), but that is not something the resort can control. The staff were amazing, going out of their way to be friendly and welcming, and the facilities coverd all of our needs. We loved our rooms and they were well maintained, as was the rest of the resort. I only marked down one star on cleanliness due to the overwhelming septic system odor in our rooms. We booked all-inclusive and were perfectly happy eating at the buffet every day (and the all inclusive drink options are excellent as well).

          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 :)
