  • 8.0.Very good

    Bandos is a very nice resort - close to Male / airport - it was ideal for my needs - a short 3 night all inclusive stay before joining a dive boat. I went for the superior beach villa and was not disappointed. Close to the dive centre and great view of the beach. Immaculate/ clean / semi open bathroom was fantastic- the all inclusive includes the mini bar - restocked daily and the drinks options were fine. Nice pool with small swim up bar ( the bartender was great - can’t remember his name - sorry ! ) all the staff were helpful and friendly and too top it off I received an ebookers vip early check in ( 9am ) which really helped with the early arrival from Abu Dhabi ! All in all a fabulous resort - Close to the airport ! Would definitely return again !

    Not the best...

    Not the best hotel in the Maldives, nor the cheapest. Could do with an entire refurbishment. Missing things like beach umbrellas or drinks service on the beach. Most rooms are very out dated and look tired. Beach villas are nice and new. Service generally good. Food could be better. All inclusive is only valid in 1 restaurant but drinks available at others.

    Great family holiday

    Lovely hotel, very family friendly. Facilities and entertainment are very limited at the moment due to COVID (only Huvan, Grill Deck and Sea Breeze are open), but there was still plenty to do for a young family. Staff are very friendly, particularly Guru at the pool bar. Food was fantastic and plentiful. House reef is great for snorkeling. We stayed in a Superior Beach Villa which didn't have direct access to a beach but it was only a small walk - room was a bit dated but generally had everything we needed. Outside jacuzzi bath was a great touch. Would definitely visit again.

    I first stayed at Bandos resot 30 years ago. It has changed a lot in this time with a lot more facilities. It is a well run resort and the staff of friendly and professional. Great care was taken to maintain safety control measures because of the Covid 19 pandemic and we felt completeley safe at all times.Because the resort had only re-opened 2 weeks earlie because of the pandemic, not all of the facilities were open, but this was not a problem because occupancy at that time was quite low. At full occupancy, bars and resturants would be very busy and access to the best parts of the beaches more difficult, although all sun loungers were numbered by room. Our experience was overall very positive, the island is quite close to Male Airport, so the boat transfer is relatively quick, but the capital Male and associated islands can be clearly seen from part of the island, and this together with a significant number of tankers and other large boats temporarilly moored offshore because they cannot dock at Male Port at the moment means that you dont get the isolated desert island feel, particularly at the moment. The all inclusive menues, being bassed around fixed choices is a bit limiting, although the food was of good quality. The resort is well maintained, although I think more attention could be paid to walking the beaches to collect any litter washed up - I remoived quite a lot over the latter part of the holiday and had to alert staff to collect it. Overall a most enjoyable.

    The staff are A-M-A-Z-I-N-G! Lovely, polite, helpful, friendly, proactive, smiley.... couldn't ask better! The place is pretty much pristine even if very close to Malì (just 10/15 mins by boat) and the structures are just a little bit tired and a little bit crowded at some points. The food was very delicious and we went for an "all inclusive" option which was a very good value for money even if the selection of drinks was not huge.
