It was in excellent location, near Male, as well as presence of a Doctor in case of need.
Rooms required refurnished as well as more maintenance
the nature is great, water is crystal clear & beach is so clean, white sand are so soft & it's really dream land
staff are busy doing daily jobs, don't make orders or special events by phone. they'll tell you ok but nothing will be done, you have to go to reception disc to make whatever you want. I requested candle lite dinner as surprise to my wife, they took my request by written paper, then they did everything just different way so i cancelled it & that made me so disappointed.
The nature, the beach, the staff, the resort, the entertainment, snorkeling
Spa is expensive
I like the clean sea and the grate beach of bandos
The only problem was with the humidity in july there is no a\c in the dining rooms in all the resort and the reception just in the rooms
The location in the Indian ocean is awesome. Great diving & water sports everywhere. Only 15mins from Male airport by speedboat.
As everyone knows thr Maldives is very expensive for everything. You will blow a ton of money there but I think its worth it.
the beach is very nice. There are variety of color fishes in the sea. Buffet meals are good and delicious. Reception staff are good(most of the time).Its suitable place to getting relax in the beach. Every thing is clear that how much you should pay for it.
you have to pay extras (about 14%) for every thing.Some of the staff are so polite but others prefer to earn money to smile. Its better to book standard or delux rooms if you want to expend your time in the beach because they are on the beach. Beach villas is better if you prefer to have more comfort and to be in the beach. Garden villas are just near the pool and not in the beach. There are so many facilities but you have to pay for everyone.
Very nice small Island with great reef and snorkeling possibilities. Nice clean beaches with clear water. Reconstruceted almost new facilities and accommodations. Good location, close to Male, but you have already feeling of the "middle of nowhere island". The Male is visible only from small part of island. Comparing to other resorts is cheap - good value for great time to spend. Also the food and drink prices are acceptable.
Generaly not much things or experiences which I didnt like. Maybe the breakfast food could change from time to time.
The most beautiful reef in the area! Great location within 15 min on boat from the airport.
Too slow check-in. Cannot buy fruits in the hotel. The lack of large mirror in the room. Inattentive staff: nobody even sent a birthday card to my wife on her birthday. Monotonous food at dinners, bad desserts. We were there on the honeymoon and informed the hotel about it in advance, but the room was as usual and there was no greetings.
We have received an upgrade to a beachfront villa that has really made a great difference. We enjoyed it very much and we can strongly recommend it to other maldives visitors. Perhaps not for some couples looking for isolation but for all other travelers it is suitable. Friendly and accomodating staff specially the receptionist Ali ("Japanese guide"). Good snorkeling and diving facilties
Standard rooms seem to be rather basic and not to the level. The 77 usd cost for the 20 min. group boat transfer can not be justified. The indian orientated food is ok but nothing special.Internet (Wi-fi) works well but very expensive (over 2 usd per hour) only at common grounds (reception, restaurants)
They really have nice reef for snorkeling. You would see a lot of interesting marine life. Big chances you will be seeing big sharks too!
The food did not meet my expectation but it was fair enough.
staff attitude. couldn't arrange a golf car to transfer to a restaurant (Batteries are empty). didn't extend the check-out time unless I pay extra, although my extra bill was more than USD. 1,700 in 2 days only
Beautiful setting, efficiently run, very relaxing
Thought alcoholic/soft beverages were prohibitively expensive/rip-off and canot be justified. Breakfast was fair (at best).
It was a very relaxing atmosphere. Seaside and coral reaf around Bandos is very nice. Very good gim, food and nice cocktails.
It was a bit long while waiting for a serving of tea or coffee during the breakfast. It would be better to have a coffee & tea station as a part of buffet, so that guests coul´d take drinks by themselfs.
The location is beautiful
The Maldives is beautiful but I have to say that policies and staff could use some adjustments. They would not let us check in early and the hotel was not full at all. We went to the hotel restaurant and they called to tell us the rooms were ready but would not bring the keys to us. Little things that make a hotel great.
A very nice resort with comfort and luxury. Excellent beaches and fcilities. Nice rooms and good restaurants.
