Bliss, relaxation and a great experience.
Pros: Staff were fantastic and really friendly and that was across the whole resort. Always welcoming and always smiling - an absolute pleasure to be around. Beaches were excellent, clean and tidy with stunning, clear waters and an amazing array of fish. The choice of food at the buffet never failed to surprise and the quality was excellent. We had a fantastic steak at the Grill Bar - best for a long while! The beach villa was stunning with air conditioning a welcome relief from the heat and showering 'outside' was an experience. Finally, the speedboat transfers were very efficient so, overall, a great experience.

Amazing island for couple’s retreat
Pros: Location, garden villas, snorkeling.
Cons: Upon check out (10 minutes before the transfer), the front desk guy informed us about bag of chips we presumably ate from minibar and requested $6.38 to be paid. The night before we closed the bill (SPA, Romantic Dinner, Medicine) and there was no charge for minibar. Not to mention, there was no bag of chips in the minibar. We paid $7, never received change (never expected), and no receipt was offered. I am sure, the guy just packed the money. Also, fruit selection at the restaurant is limited to watermelon, apples, and pineapple.

Overall it was a good experience, i wudn't say the best considering it was my 3rd visit to Maldives.
Pros: The Breakfast was amazing, food was ok as there were less options with chicken. All the bars were a decent visit and the views were mesmerizing. The Beach was clean and amazing.
Cons: To be Honest the room was good, although we requested for an upgrade we couldn't get one due to high occupancy. We were disappointed that we couldn't get a late checkout either. There was a Dead Huge Cockroach in the bathroom, although i didn't intimate the staff but such things needs to be looked at before handing over the keys to the guests. i wouldn't want to score your hotel with a bad review and i wish u all the very best and I'm sure you would be more careful with your guest. Another incident was with the sea cucumbers which threw up their parts on my leg and feet and it was scary at first until i realized what it actually was, but i cant blame the Hotel for that as it is nature.

4 nights only.
Pros: The size of the island was ideal. Lovely amazing beaches. You could find private small coves with loungers. Also some larger beach areas. Staff were amazing.
Cons: The evening entertainment was poor. 1st night was an amazing live band. Other nights not great. 1 night was movie night? Really, that's not evening entertainment.

Pros: Siamo arrivati il giorno del mio compleanno. La sera ci hanno fatto trovare un tavolo speciale con una piccola torta e mi hanno cantato tanti auguri :) In generale bel resort, curato, comodo per i bambini soprattutto per la vicinanza a Malè.
Cons: Molti muretti di protezione visibili dalla spiaggia, ma comunque mare bellissimo con tanto da vedere durante lo snorkeling

Vacanza in famiglia
Pros: La posizione 15 minuti di motoscafo dall'aeroporto è davvero molto comoda. La barriera corallina molto ricca e variegata e gli squaletti che arrivano a riva sono stati molto apprezzati. Lo staff è molto cordiale e disponibile. Le escursioni proposte sono molto belle tra cui la possibilità di andare a pescare e degustare poi al ristorante il proprio pesce cucinato davvero molto bene. Vacanza indimenticabile, ci torneremo volentieri!
Cons: Il cibo al buffet è molto vario ma ripetitivo. Anche con i bambini si trova comunque sempre qualcosa di loro gradimento.

Наш мальдивский отпуск был долгожданным – очень давно не отдыхали в теплых странах. Отель выбрали по отзывам, фотографиям и локацией (недалеко от аэропорта Мале – минут 15-20 на катере). Встретили очень радушно и гостеприимно. Номер мы изначально выбрали «Делюкс» – располагается в отдалении от всего движа острова, имеет как бы отдельный вход на пляж – тихо и спокойно. По еде немного однообразно, но при этом очень вкусно, свежие продукты, все аккуратно приготовлено. Система питания AI – все же на данный момент оптимальный выбор. Официанты очень приветливые и стараются помочь, угодить, быстро принести напитки и т.д. Вечерние шоу есть – некоторые специфические (например, народные танцы), а есть стоящие – выступление группы The Wood покорило с первых же минут, прослушали каждую песню; «Вечер караоке» – повезет, если среди отдыхающих будут певцы (как, например, у нас: вышла на сцену хрупкая девушка, но с таким мооощным голосом. Представляете по всему острову звучала песня «Конь». Думаю, что словам известны многим! До мурашек!!!). Из спортивных развлечений пользовались теннисным кортом, бильярдом, настольным теннисом. Смело рекомендуем этот отель для семей с детьми – комфортно, удобно, приятно. При возможности хотелось бы сюда вернуться!

Lush greenery, white sandy beaches, and turquoise blue sea is the first thing we noticed when we arrived. The property is beautifully landscaped with plenty of facilities for guests . Our 4 year old loved the kokko Club( kids club) with an amazing play area outside. We went on mothers Day, and they had a whole day of activities planned, which was a nice surprise. The premium beach villas were really nicely designed with private jacuzzi and bedroom on upper floor which was nice and private.| Evening entertainment was also really good with local culture show. With 4 dining options, an incredible spa and one of the best pools around the resort is a true island paradise. We can't wait to go back. Special thanks to Nooree for arranging a special surprise for our family members who just turned 50. Thank you!

This was the first time to Bandos, the first time being on a island ever in my life. It was a short decision and the best. It was a long way flying to Bandos but it was worth it every day been there. The first trip with the speedboat to Bandos was making us very excited. On arrival to the island, we were led to a reception area and offered cold drinks and refreshing warm clothing to refresh our faces. After 13 hours journey, this was very much appreciated. After a short wait, we were taken to our accommodation by a motorised buggy and our luggage followed shortly behind. We actually got to our room earlier than anticipated as the accommodation was available for us; in theory we should’ve waited many hours but we’re kindly allowed to go in early. The accommodation was perfect for our needs, positioned close to the beach and everything else we need it. Bandos is a very clean island, and there were many staff on the island always tending to areas on the island, cleaning, tending to plants, sweeping, etc. The staff are so helpful and just can’t do enough for you, nothing was much trouble and they will go out of their way to be helpful in whatever you need. The staff are a credit to this island. The food on the island was great, catered for all needs. For us, there was a great buffet selection of different meat or fish dishes, pastas, vegetables, salads, breads, soups, great breakfast selections from cooked breakfasts, different breads, pastries, fruit, and a wonderful selection of desserts from mini cakes, Ice cream to puddings… just couldn’t fault choices available at every meal time! We were blessed with great weather during our stay . We loved our stay, and can’t wait to return again one day. I couldn't stop smiling from feeling so grateful and thankful to be on such a beautiful island. The service was everything a person or families would expect on a vacation. Thanks to a wonderful young lady by the name of AFIFA MOHAMMED 💕 she made sure that we had everything during all this time and gave great advice for everything, she always set up the table so nicely for us, she really made us feel special, which made it hard for us to leave, and will definitely come back to visit. Hopefully we will see her again, i already miss her🌺💕. Thank you to the Bandos staff, the entertainment was just wonderfully enjoyable. Karaoke was fun and we had a chance to sing with a great singer who had a beautiful voice of Grace Sadora and an awesome Rock Band called “The Wood!”hopefully will see you all again in February next year!💕 but I'll ask for softer bed 😉. The only disappointment was the excursions were too expensive to experience on such a beautiful island. I would’ve loved to do more and watch or swim with the dolphins , but still had a great time with all inclusive. Thank you so much for everything. I'll miss you all🙏🤗

This was our second time to Bandos, the first time being 25 years ago for our honeymoon. We decided to return to celebrate our 25th Wedding Anniversary and to make it even more special, we renewed our Wedding Vows. We travelled with British Airways Holidays as this was the only airline that flew direct to Male. It was more expensive to do the holiday that way, but for someone who doesn’t enjoy flying, it was best for us. Bandos is only 15-20 mins away from Male; we found the island representative in the arrivals area at the airport and after a short wait for other passengers to arrive, we were led to their waiting large speedboat, to take us to Bandos. We were lucky to see a family of dolphins on our journey across the ocean and the pilot of the boat, slowed and stopped the boat so we could take in the beautiful sight of the dolphins against the turquoise blue waters. On arrival to the island, we were led to a reception area and offered cold drinks and warm cleansing cloths to freshen up. After a 10hr+ journey, this was very much appreciated. After a short wait, we were taken to our accommodation by a motorised buggy and our luggage followed shortly behind. We actually got to our room earlier than anticipated as the accommodation was available for us; in theory we should’ve waited 4 hours but we’re kindly allowed to go in early. We booked all inclusive and chose to stay in a Beach Villa for our 9 nights on the island. The accommodation was perfect for our needs; positioned right next to the beach with less than a minute or two to get where we wanted to be. Our accommodation was fairly close to the Huvan, a restaurant/bar that was positioned above the ocean on a walkway jetty. We drank plenty of cocktails from here while watching fish swimming around in the waters below. The position of Huvan was on the west side of the island and gave some beautiful sunsets in the evenings. Our Accommodation was relatively new, very modern with huge king size bed and sofa, tea and coffee making facilities, mini bar etc. hairdryer, and a bathroom that was huge! The bathroom is attached to the accommodation, but is part exposed to the outside ( has no ceiling above the shower)… all open air! Our swimwear dried very quickly in the bathroom after wearing and rinsing! Bandos is a very clean island, and there were many staff on the island always tending to areas on the island, cleaning, tending to plants, sweeping, sorting vegetation etc. The island is somewhat self sustaining and grows vegetables, fruits, rears chickens/ eggs etc. The staff are so helpful and just can’t do enough for you; nothing is too much trouble and they will go out of their way to be helpful in whatever you need. Even though it was the holy month of Ramadan and some staff often were working without eating until after sunset, this never stopped them from smiling and continuing with their normal working activities. The staff are a credit to this island. We could not have got better if we had paid more for a five star island; in our eyes, this lovely island had gone from 4 star to 5 stars in the 25 years since we’d been there! So many changes that were positive, 3 restaurants to now choose from ( previously only 1), an entertainments/ bar area which had a program of changing entertainment throughout the week, a lovely large outside swimming pool with swim up bar, which served some wonderful drinks/cocktails or tea if you preferred! Highlights to our holiday were watching small sharks and stingrays in the evening near the Seabreeze Cafe; just amazing to watch these swim right up to the jetty and await food that was often given to them in the evening. We renewed our wedding vows 2 days after arriving on the island, on our actual 25th wedding anniversary. We had emailed in advance of the holiday to ask and explain of our intention to do this and on arrival, after an initial chat and a few smaller chats, everything was taken care of by the management and Bandos staff. They arranged for our wedding attire to be picked up and ironed, arranged for me to have wedding makeup and hair done; picked me up and took me to Orchid Spa for these to be done. They picked up my Hubby and brought him to meet me ready for the ceremony. They arranged for a photographer to capture photos of our afternoon/ evening and special day. We had the ceremony on a beautiful part of the beach, where we later cut cake, and celebrated with champagne and our wedding meal. We also were taken for a short trip around the bay on a boat, for more photo opportunities. It was a perfect day! We received the digital photos prior to leaving the island; was lovely to look at them on the plane home! The food on the island was superb, catered for all needs. For us, there was a great buffet selection of different meat or fish dishes, pastas, vegetables, salads, breads, soups, great breakfast selections from cooked breakfasts, different breads, pastries, fruit, and a wonderful selection of desserts from mini cakes, Ice cream to puddings… just couldn’t fault choices available at every meal time! We were blessed with great weather during our stay but if we hadn’t, we would’ve made even more use of the indoor air conditioned gym or games area. The badminton court was not air conditioned, so we only managed 15 mins in there after an hour in a cool gym! But was great nonetheless. As it was Easter, the island was quite busy. It was quieter in the first few days we arrived but soon became busier and more families arrived. We would’ve loved an area of the island to be adult only; working in Education, it’s nice to have the chance to escape children, but if there were more families around, you could always walk elsewhere. We loved our stay, and can’t wait to return again one day. Thankyou to all of the Bandos staff, Amar, Petru in the pool and sandbar, the lovely ladies that greeted us in the Gallery restaurant ( 159!) , the wonderful guy in the sea breeze cafe ( whose name we’ve forgotten so sorry, but had s pointy beard and was always smiling!) and the lovely guy in the orchid spa, who did a wonderful job making me feel a million dollars on our Special day… thank you to you all!

It is a perfect place to rest and relax with your couple or family. A very comfortable hotel, well conserved, despite being one of the first resorts around Maldives. The quality of the food is good, and the main buffet is well prepared every day. What we do a 5* stay is the hotel crew. They are friendly and always try to make your stay as great as possible. I want to give special thanks to Tanuj and his crew; they were always taking care of all the details, working really hard to make guests as happy as possible. You guys are rock stars. Thank you so much for your hospitality. Looking forward to seeing you soon!

The island is such a beautiful and well kept place the moment you arrive the staff greeted us with a warm welcome and the food was very good with variety of food choices. The service was everything a person or families would expect on a vacation. Thanks to a wonderful young lady by the name of AFIFA MOHAMMED ❤️ she made sure that we had everything we needed during lunch breakfast and dinner, and she always set up the table so nicely for us, she really made us feel special, which made it hard for us to leave, and will definitely come back to visit. Hopefully we will see her again.. thank you to the Bandos staff, the entertainment was just wonderful. And we heard the beautiful voice of Grace Sadora and an awesome Rock Band called “The Wood!”hopefully will see you all again in February next year! ❤️❤️❤️ the only disappointment was the excursions were too expensive to experience on such a beautiful island. I would’ve loved to gone night fishing and watch the dolphins in the evening, but still had a great time with all inclusive, which I would recommend..

Quick boat trip from the airport. The island is pretty and takes about 30 minutes to walk right around the island. We stayed in a standard bungalow, which was close to the sea and seemed fine for us. The food was delicious and varied. We particularly enjoyed eating the curries. Our favourite bar was The Huvan as you could enjoy watching the sharks swimming in the water & watch the herons. We had a late night drink at The Sand Bar. All the waitors were attentive and enjoyed chatting to them, especially Danta. Snorkeling was good, especially on the beach by The Huvan. A relaxing and enjoyable holiday!

Eine empfehlenswerte Anlage. Traumhafter Strand und sehr freundliche Mitarbeiter. Besonders Guru von der Poolbar ist uns ans Herz gewachsen! Sauber, sowohl die Zimmer als auch die gesamte Infrastruktur. Auch das Abend-Buffet verdient eine Extra-Bewertung. Ist von der Qualität und Präsentation im oberen Bereich anzusiedeln. Bei der Buchung würden wir deshalb empfehlen, mindestens Halbpension zu wählen.

You get the best drinks at Guru‘s little stand between the Gallery Restaurant and the Sand Bar. He also offers great deals on wine! Guru always tries to find the right treatment for his guests and is very charming person. We will definitively go for his wine offers again!

So, of course anyone who travels to the Maldives for a holiday there is privileged. And has paid a huge amount for the experience. And has high expectations as a result. I’m sorry to say we were disappointed by many aspects of Bandos. It seems to be resting on its reputation as one of the first holiday resorts, but is falling far behind in terms of what it offers. Staff are often excellent - shout out to the wonderful Marvel in the Gallery restaurant. But the welcome in reception on arrival was poor - it had all the charm and sense of occasion of registering at the dentists. Guys - we’ve flown half way round the world to reach you. It’s a big deal. We felt only that we were being processed. The main issue for us was over crowding on the island. Too many guests. And too many families. It really was impossible to escape the family groups, babies and troublesome toddlers. It has made me want to book only for adult only hotels. Too many queues for food - the Gallery restaurant is like a canteen. Not enough space between tables. Sometimes hard to find a table. They could provide more outdoor seating. Staff work very hard to deal with the churn of guests at every service. But it is not a pleasant experience. Food tends to be bland and buffet style, everything seems to taste the same. The other restaurants are OK but work out very expensive to give yourself a break from the buffet queue and buffet food. On the beach, there was a scramble for sun loungers, and on many occasions we had to retreat from the continual screams of children in the water and on the sand. There were some very large family groups which plonked themselves right in front of where we were situated. There was a really international mix of guests, but too many Russians and many Chinese. We won’t be returning and I wouldn’t recommend Bandos unfortunately.
