This island has without a doubt the best house reef surrounding the island. During our 6 days stay we saw sharks (two different kinds), a seaturtle, octopus and a dolphin. Every snorkle trip had new type of fish for us to explore. The island itself is very cosy, the food was great, so was the staff. We felt very welcome.... More

Been here a couple of days and so far so good. I can assure you that if it wasn't, I would say so. All of the staff have been friendly and helpful. The location of the villa is a matter of feet from the beach it is fine. The jacuzzi is a nice touch. The buildings I have seen are... More

This was our third travel to Maldives island. All our stays were in 4 star hotels. Some of our friends have additionally traveled many times to this beautiful country, using the same standards. Then we know exactly what to expect. This was, by far, the worst resort we have visited. I have nothing to say about the rooms, and the... More

This review has been long pending.Maldives was always a honeymoon dream for us which we never thought would come true owing to the humongous hotel rates. But Bandos came as a blessing and provided us with an affordable yet luxurious honeymoon. We stayed there for 4 nights and 5 days and we can't wait to go back again. The locales... More

This island is fine for a limited budget and maybe even represents good value for the maldives. The island itself is stunning. But scratch the surface and there are lots of problems that make it an average island. The staff are average, some are lazy and a few terrible. The best were the coconut gardeners who were great. The worst... More

Although my wife and I have travelled extensively, this was our first trip to the Maldives and we enjoyed it immensely. Its hard to fault our experience. I'm sure that there are more upmarket resorts but this had a great balance of laid back charm with great amenities. We had a beach villa which was lovely. It was very comfortable... More
