Wonderful experience from the moment we got to the pickup counter at the airport. Room was not going to be ready for another 4 hours.so my family and I decided to go see the mainland. Bandos provided a tour guide at no cost to me. Clean room, wonderful and pleasant staff. Hasan in the gallery restaurant went above and beyond. Chen at dive bandos was excellent for my first scuba diving experience. The house reef is great. First rate facility. Well maintained. Would go back again.

Hubby and I went there there for our honeymoon in mid September, and the place was unbelievable!! It was better then what we expected and much nicer then the photos we saw before we went. The staff were very friendly and everyone spoke good English so there were no communication barriers. The water bungalow we stayed in was perfect for us two, very spacious, clean and the views were to die for! You could swim under the bungalow or just sit around and relax at the beach which was just a short walk away.
The food was great, so were the tours available on the resort. It was an amazing experience and we recommend this place for everyone!!
Just keep in mind everything is quite expensive, so if you can do half board at the least, as there are no shops to buy snacks or food from, just restaurants and bars only.

Overall, Paradise is a great resort to stay. It has a great beach and some breath-taking experiences. A small thing - there is a swing outside each beach bungalow and our family had a great fun on it :).
Having said that, I feel its a still bit over-priced. I guess that's true for most of the places in Maldives. Here are some of the experiences that I would term as not-so-good:
1) First and foremost - "FOOD": It just sucks. They need to cook better!
2) Warmth of the staff - This was good in places but overall I found the staff to be very curt, not so responsive and non-pleasing.
3) Some facilities like kids park needs to be maintained better and upgraded.

When we plan to visit Male and looking at the few places pls not to consider any negative reviews by the Toursit on this property. This place and service is better than what they have mentioned/shown in the website.

We were extremely happy with our overwater bungalow, with tropical fish right at our doorstep. The staff are all extremely friendly and helpful, and we didn't want for anything in our comfortable bungalow. We would highly recommend this resort to anybody.

We stayed at Baros from June 23 to June 30 and had an absolutely fantastic time. It is meant for couples who want to spend some quality time together. Ideal for Honeymoon, anniversary, special occasion or just going there to recharge and getting to know each other again. If you want to be busy with activities, find another resort. If you want privacy, attentive service, good food and outstanding views, then this is the place for you.

The island is absolutely amazing. It's small with few rooms, so it doesn't feel too crowded. The reef is incredible and there are a number of wonderful opportunities to see the Maldives (offered by the hotel).

Location is great and very pleasant staff and reasonable facilities. Lovely dining lounge overlooking sea.
Probs- not of the hotels making - Maldives ingeneral - , lax health and safety, everything priced (rip off prices) in US dollars. If you are in the middle of the pacific you are going to get fleeced - just be aware before you go and it will not spoil your holiday.

This region is home to the national capital Male, the international airport, and a high concentration of resorts. The good news is that the pace, serenity, and low key development of the islands is intact.
