Bandos Maldives was more than we expected. First thing first, place is sparkling clean. Then you meet the workers who are amazingly friendly, helpful and well hearted down to earth people. The food is a lot. Plenty of varieties through out the dining week. Hot, fresh and served in a very healthy manner. They have different activities throughout the week that will keep you alive if you are not a sleeping person. Rooms are spacious, well maintained,well class. The service it self is five stars. I and my husband enjoyed our stay at Bandos and we would like to give a hand of applause to the following Bandos crew amongst many. IBRAHIM, NIKHELISH, CYNTHIA, LUXMAN, HUMMAM, AHMED ALI, IRMA, EMILY, GURU, GENELYN, LOVELY, CLARIE, SUBASH, MOHAMMED ZUHURY, VISHAH, AREEJ, JOEMARK, DAVE, DEEPAK, AMAR, DR. ALOE, HAZAM and the entire Bandos Maldives team. They provide a 5 star environment and services. Thank you very much guys and see you soon God willing. We will visit to follow up on the tree we planted. Cheers and God bless you!

I like the staff courtesy, politeness, friendliness & accommodation. I qas expecting deluxe beachfront as literally beachFRONT from my foyer, was given rm260 & had to take few feet to access beachfront view. But not too bad only would be more spectacular to open the door with beachfront view in front of your face. But we enjoyed its green ambiance. Regular Cleaning & refilling our rm was a reg request and had to call few times for sonething was overlooked. They were quick, anyway. Also would be better with more varieties or at least different meñus at buffet. Staying for 5days food gets tiring. Overall it was an amazing vacation as we expected. Thank you Bandos for a memorable Wedding Anniversary getaway!❤💚

Pro, The food service staff and bar tenders were great and very friendly. Clean resort. Cons, the food is awful, and extremely expensive. Chicken is slimy, salad dressing is soured, its all awful. Flights mostly arrive early morning and departures leave later at night. No early check in, and no late check out. You get into your room at check in times but no earlier, no temporary accommodations while you wait, and when you leave, you're out at 12 that's when all package end. They also don't have the beaches they claim small short beaches line this island, there is no long beach with shallow calm waters. The villas go into rough deep water, not worth the money. Overall, choose another place.
