Traumhafte Tage in wunderschöner Natur !
Wir hatten wunderschöne Tage auf einer traumhaften Insel. Großes Zimmer, gut klimatisiert, immer sehr freundliches Personal etc. Direkt vom Strand kann man schnorcheln und sehr viele Fische sehen (auch Riffhaie). Sehr gute Büffets. Gutes Gym (auch wenn 3 Laufbänder bei der Anzahl der Gäste etwas wenig sind). Die einzigen wirklich kleinen Kritikpunkte bzw. Verbesserungsvorschläge: 1. Wifi ist sehr schwach und häufig bricht die Verbindung ab. 2. Wenn man Vollpension gebucht hat, bekommt man beim Mittag- und Abendessen nur Wasser gratis. Eine Kaffee- und Teestation wie beim Frühstück wäre nett. 3. Es wäre nett, wenn man beim Ausschecken wie beim Einschecken einen Fahrservice gehabt hätte. 4. Leider blockieren auch hier wie überall auf der Welt viele Gäste mit ihren Handüchern stundenlang Liegen ohne sie zu benutzen. Fazit: Klare Empfehlung für entspannte Tage im Paradies. Wir hoffen, wir kommen wieder !

8/10 Very good

Very relaxing.
The stay overall was very good. Staff very helpful. The all inclusive is recommended. Didn’t change bedsheets in a four night stay. Cleaning of the room wasn’t thorough. Good variety of food but very repetitive.

3 night stopover
Choosing a resort in the Maldives takes a lot of research! I finally settled on Bandos as it ticked a lot of my boxes. As I was only on a 3 day stopover I wanted an Maldivian Island experience not too far from Male Airport ( Bandos is 10 mins by hotel transfer boat, USD95 return p.p.) and I wanted to be able to snorkel on a house reef at a time that was convenient to me without having to rely on booking other snorkelling trips to outer reefs. Bandos ticked my boxes! It has different accommodation choices to choose from scattered around the Island. I found the staff very friendly, the accommodation super clean (I stayed in a Premium Beach Villa). I found the inclusive meals to be of a high standard and really enjoyed the locally influenced curry dishes. There was a very good selection of dishes generally, however, being celiac I have to admit I was a bit disappointed with the lack of Gluten Free dessert offerings on some of the evenings. During my stay the other guests were a mixture of couples, friends and family groups so pretty much all demographics.

Family friendly! Beautiful Island and the hotel, very friendly staff, love the sand, sting ray feeding. Great entertainment. Ignore all the negative reviews. If you're an outdoorsy person and a beach lover this is a great place to come, enjoy!
