    We stayed here for 4 nighted 01/04 to 05/04 and it was sensational. 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.

    It is a good choice to stay in Bandos Maldives for my vacation. The staffs are helpful. The service and arrangement are good. It is excellent to have the Club House service after the check-out on last day. So we can still have the swimming activity in the pool or beach.

    Highly recommended!”

    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).

    Contact Bandos reservation in advance and tell them your flight arrangement together with your planned trips, if having extra plan to go to hulhumale or male. Because they will arrange the timeline for u. In additions, the staffs are all very kind. I feel so good when I stay there.

    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.
