    Good to stay

    It’s once in a lifetime experience. Cost is a little high and it completely worth it. You can order food to your door steps.

    Couples getaway

    Very nice large room near the beach. Service was good in bars and restaurants. Food wasn’t always the best at the buffet. The Japanese restaurant was excellent! Snorkeling was excellent!

    Séjour parfait !

    Notre séjour à été vraiment parfait, l'atoll de Bandos est rapidement atteint en une vingtaine de minutes en speed boat. Le personnel est aux petits soins, tellement sympathique et souriant, toujours impeccables. Les chambres sont grandes et face à la plage, très bonne literie, vous trouverez tout ce dont vous avez besoin sur place, il y a de nombreuses activités, bars et restaurants. Idéal pour décrocher du stress quotidien. Je lis certains avis ou les gens s'étonnent des prix, vous êtes sur un atoll au milieu de nulle part où tout est importé il est donc logique que votre Pina colada soit aux même prix qu'en France. Bref c'est un excellent rapport qualité-prix.

    Descanso y desconexión en el paraíso

    Hemos pasado 11 noches en Bandos y la experiencia ha sido magnífica. Elegimos este hotel por la cercanía con el aeropuerto, apenas se tardan 10 minutos en bote, y hemos estado muy a gusto. La habitación era la estándar, la número 202, situada frente al mar y, para mi gusto, en la mejor playa de la isla, la zona oeste. Amplia, luminosa, con un porche con vistas al mar y con un baño grande con ducha. Me gustaría destacar el trabajo de Arif, el chico que limpiaba la habitación, siempre de buen humor. La habitación siempre estaba perfecta. La isla es más grande de lo que pensaba, el perímetro son 1,8 kilómetros aproximadamente. Todas las noches dábamos varias vueltas paseando y era muy agradable el paseo con la brisa del mar. Tiene 3 restaurantes, uno de ellos buffet y 4 bares, para mí el mejor el Huvan, situado en el mar. La comida del Gallery Restaurant excelente, me sorprendió gratamente. Me gustaría destacar la comida hecha en el wok y a su chef, súper amable y sonriente siempre. También quiero hacer una mención especial a las chicas filipinas, Khristine, Claire y Cynthia, siempre sonrientes y dispuestas a ayudarte en todo lo que necesitases. Y a los camareros Joe Mark, Faizan y Dave, excelente servicio. A pesar de estar el coral bastante dañado hay muchísima vida hasta en la misma orilla, hemos visto todo tipo de peces de colores. Hemos desconectado y disfrutado muchísimo de la playa y snorkel. Maldivas es un paraíso y Bandos una excelente opción.

    this was one of my best travels in the world, great welcome and service, i got early check-in and late check-out, the staff are very kind and helpful, the transport was very fast and they wait for us at the airport for 94$ for both directions in a boat, it took like a 15 min , the all inclusive include one restaurant only that had average food, drinks were ok and can get them in more than one restaurant/bar. we had done covid19 PCR in our room one day before departure for 75$ per person and got the result within 8 hours. there is poor snacks(sandwich/small cake) in one restaurant only for 1.5 hour in the day, you can get water sports/diving for pay. at all it was an great experience and excellent stay for the money we payed .

    Excellent value for money in a charming place

    The hotel is excellent by many points of view, a small paradise. The beach is very beautiful and you can easily find some corners of it all for yourself (ideal for couples). The sea is crystal-clear, you can easily spot fishes and the hotel has many offers for extra activities, snorkelling, water sports, excursions etc. (with some limitations right now due to COVID restrictions). The staff was extremely friendly and flexible. The room was comfortable and close to the beach. Breakfast and food in general was good. The gym was well equipped. Unless you are desperately looking for an exotic island in the middle of nowhere (which admittedly it is not the case), you will not be bothered by the proximity of Malé city. Most important, the hotel is not very expensive, so we highly recommend it for those who want to enjoy the charm of Maldives without spending too much. Only one thing really needs improvement, the Internet connection, which in many places is not good. However, this does not change our overall very positive assessment.
