Went with several families with children and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Stayed in the luxury rooms which were actually double cottages with a door between the two rooms. The beach in front of the standard rooms was actually better, so not sure what we would choose if we came back. A low number luxury room will put you closer to the best beach and the lovely sundowners bar, but further from the reception and buffet restaurant. We had opted for the b&b option to give ourselves more choice, but the food in the buffet was much better quality.
The snorkelling was out of this world, and the pool area was great as well; good for our toddler who found even the slight waves in the sea a little overwhelming.
All in all, it's a great place for families and good vslue for your mokney. For romantic holiday, I would probably choose one of the more expensive/exclusive resorts.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Not wishing to rest on the laurels of our existing achievements, Bandos had in the past year undertaken a major refurbishment project with the intention of transforming ourselves into a hotel that is truly reflective of the times. Careful consideration however, was given at all times to ensure that the old-world refinement for which the island has a reputation remained uncompromised. Under the project, major facelifts have been given to the front desk, lobby areas, shops, restaurants and bars and have furthermore commissioned a new swimming pool and additional accommodation facilities all of which perfectly blend with the island’s tropical splendour and give visitors a taste of the Maldivian aesthetic. ... more less
