It was a pleasant experience.! Since we arrived on the island we were treated well. Dinner was good. Dinner was fantastic. We enjoyed the whole experience. There was always someone with us the whole time checking if we needed anything or if we have a question.

Great place to de-stress yourself, good service, good food and its not very far from the airport. Its about 30 minutes from the airport by speed boat. The island is very calm and one can take a walk around the entire island. We stayed in a little chalet and it has alot of privacy, a little house to your own,...

We spent a long weekend on Bandos Island on our way to Sri Lanka. From the moment we stepped off the speedboat we were made to feel welcome. Our beach front villa was very nice and spacious with everything we needed for a long weekend. The food and drink was good with plenty of choice. Snorkeling from the beach allowed...

Stayed at Bandos in February for four nights. Rooms were spacious and service was very good Food at the Buffet was good but not great. Had a dive on the house reef that was enjoyable. Water clarity and fish were great. A lot of coral bleaching has occurred and a number of the island guests were observed swimming in beach...

It was our second stay at Maldives but first time with kids (2 and 4) and I have to say, it was good decision. People at Bandos realy fulfill our expectations and make our holiday a memorable stay. We have been looking for something small, not too far from the airport and kids friendly. And it Bandos definitely is. Speed...

This place is very average - the island itself is lovely of course (it's The Maldives). Service is very patchy and there seems to be both good and bad. The restaurant Sea Breeze is very nice and the staff here seem to be a little more attentive - the food is good here which os more than can be said...

This was our 5th visit to Bandos and it will probably be our last. The changes that we have seen have definitely detracted from the holiday. While the island itself is still a beautiful paradise we were very disappointed with the service. We stayed in a deluxe junior suite which advertises a four poster bed. What we got was 2...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Not wishing to rest on the laurels of our existing achievements, Bandos Maldives 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
