Private and luxurious
We arrived in Male. Got transferred to a private boat and taken to the island. Our cottage we had booked on the beach with private jacuzzi and out door bathroom. It was so good! Not cheap but worth the money

Worst wifi,repetitive and simple food.
After 5 days here,I am writing this review and must say that any bad feeling regarding the hotel itself is mitigated by the beauty of surrounding nature.Deluxe room #276,is ample and clean but a little bit out of date.Main restaurant's buffet is simple and repetitive,same food with different name day after day,the yesterday's biryani rice is today's pilau rice.A la carte menus also very simple.The wifi is deplorable to say the less,0.5 mbps at evenings,something expectable back in the 90's.Fortunately I am from south america time zone so wake up very early in the mornings, the only period of time when the internet service is useful.All said is based upon comparing our three previous visits to Maldives.

Stop searching and book your stay at Bandos!
We were able to visit several islands both local and resort during our travels to the beautiful island nation of Maldives. We enjoyed our experience but our thoughts always came back to Bandos with its incredible hospitality, amazing staff, priceless scenery, wonderful accommodations and fantastic cuisine left us longing for Bandos. It was the epitome of paradise.
