Exceptional 10.0
Perfect all-rounded resort
We booked this resort because of the pictures of a beautiful round island (not too small like many other resorts where I would be concerned of getting bored). Bandos didn't disappoint. It is the second resort built in the whole Maldives and for a reason: only 15-20 min. short fast boat ride from the airport, but a true paradise. Surrounded by corals all around, so you are literally sunbathing and then every now and then you jump into the water for snorkelling and see incredible underwater life. Staff is extremely friend and the rooms are beautiful. There are all sort of facilities. We didn't go with kids this time, but I was gladly surprised about all the facilities for kids too. After Bandos we went to a local island and find out the people organise trips for snorkelling from other islands far away to Bandos as it is supposed to be one of the best snorkelling spots. Funny to think that this was our 'home' for 4 days and we could jump into the water and 15 meters away we had all the corals. Highly recommended

Amazing resort with great staff service!
Best resort in our stay of 6 days, where we stayed at 2 other resorts as well during our honeymoon. Gorgeous over-water villas, facilities and comfort. Worth the price. I would come back to stay again. Staff was very friendly and superb service, we were simply delighted by the staff's service, Food was great, buffet had lot of variety. Highly commend Ayesh's service at Front Desk reception

Great house reef snorkeling
We chose Bandos because it has it's own house reef. We loved being able to snorkel off the beach whenever we wanted. We went "All Inclusive " and as a couple who like a drink it's just as well we did. Bar prices are rather steep. Service was very good, staff are lovely. Buffet food was a good standard and a good range of foods and plentiful. We went early April, which is a quieter time which suited us.

Just plain peefect
Perfectness is expensive, but money earned by selling time should be spent buying quality time. And Bandos delivers.

Great stay at Bandos
Excellent stay at Bandos. We would recommend the all inclusive option as this feels more cost effective overall - drinks can otherwise be expensive when adding service and tax. Food was of a high standard with many options which varied each day. Customer service was excellent. We had a few hours between arrival and room availability however the club lounge facilities were made available to us so that we could freshen up etc. Pool and beach are fabulous! Only negative is that excusions seem expensive - we took the dolphin watching trip and were not advised of the price at any point until check out when cost was charged at $65 +10% service +12% tax. We had stayed on a different island previously where these types of trips were free so hadn’t expected this type of charge. This was overpriced for what it was and the cost should have been more clearly communicated (also to be absolutely fair we should have checked) Otherwise a great stay and would recommend
