Great island with a great house reef!

Great island with a great house reef. After a very long flight, it is about a 15-minute boat ride to the island. The service after the arrival was very well organized there is someone waiting for you right at the exit who accompanies you to the right tour operator, who in turn accompanies you to the boat. Unfortunately, the rooms at Bandos are only ready from 2 p.m. However, we were lucky, because we arrived at 9 a.m. and got a room that was already finished. However, I had already requested one week previously via e-mail that I ... get a room as soon as possible. The e-mail correspondence was excellent; after only a few hours, I had already received a detailed reply. We had a deluxe room which had a small vestibule with places to sit and a very large bathroom with a bathtub. Our room boy (Shaniz) was very attentive and came in the morning and in the evening to clean. The deluxe bungalows are all on a very nice section of beach, which is on the lee side and has hungry mosquitoes. So take Autan with you! The standard bungalows are located on the main beach, which was always quite full. There were two entry points for snorkelling there. The reef was a dream! We saw several large sharks and many schools of fish Great! There were enough lounge chairs available that fortunately were not constantly reserved with towels. At the Sun-Downer Bar, you can sit peacefully in the evening, chill out in one of the great seats, and enjoy the sunset. Cocktails were $7-$17, beer $5, and water $3.50. You still have to pay an additional 10% and 8% on everything. The buffet was very good. For each meal, there was a live cooking station on which the tasty fish was usually fried. There was also great fruit for dessert. What I thought was a big problem was the unrefrigerated food, such as cheese, yoghurt, and cold cuts! But we still had no stomach problems! The island population is mainly Asian and only about 20% Europeans. read hotel review

    The pool was very nicely arranged. But who needs a pool with an ocean like that? There was also a tennis court, a volleyball court, and a football field. A gym is also available.

  • April 2014
Our 8. Maldives-following a week-long trip was for two nights after tauchsafari Bandos. We had the island due to the short transfer time after male selected, since we due to the short stay no long check-in and check-out, as with other islands had been the case, wanted to take in purchase. We were picked up with the shuttle speedboat on the airport island, the crossing to Bandos took 15 minutes and is not for non- seefeste easily manageable. We were around 10:00 a. m. since. Many airline crews stay on the island. Remarkable is on arrival at the small ... harbor with firm quay walls. This is for a Maldives-kuramanthi was rather unusual, most islands have only a ankunftsjetty from wood. We were led to the reception and reception area, as well as the obligatory cold towels and ice were given the 'happy' customer, that our only starting from 2:00 p. m. jacuzzi beach villa booked ready. We had extensively time, to explore the island. inselbild At first glance everything reminded us somehow La Digue on the Seychelles: the small shopping area in the reception area, the concreted, covered with sand paths, the lush with old trees overgrown inland, the small bays, the always between the lush vegetation auftaten in the seashore. Only one has Bandos not in the direct comparison: beautiful beaches. By the close, circular reef and jungle-like vegetation there is hardly a place really to a wide, sandy beach. There, where something like beach asked, stack then also immediately ( unnummerierten and any bungalow directly attached) beach chairs, there was one closely on cheek. Also the could be observed in handtuchreserviererismus perfection. The beach chairs didn't have mats, it was so on naked plastic - we didn't try it. Only and actually unique exception: the jacuzzi pool villa. Here is the beach a bit wider on the own terrace and private pool chairs with cushions also. But of course you paid the appropriate price. A inselumrundung on the beach: not possible. Beautiful is the central reception/restaurant area standing banyan tree, with small and large, with a huge orchideenzucht inselgarten holzherzen decorated. Everywhere on the trunks kokosnusschalen blooming orchids like hang in. There was a medical centre with a german operated pressure chamber, a doctor and a filipino nurse local. The pool in the middle of the island is nicely designed, but especially families with children busy, which brings a certain noise level. In the field of water-sports center, were carried out just construction. restaurant/bars/food/service and the question: you need all-inclusive? In advance: we had booked half board, but next time in the light of the current situation would only breakfast book. The surcharge from half board to all inclusive depending on the tour operator over the 60 Euro/person/day. Really good and we have this amount by far not reached - even if the Bandos offered all inclusive for Maldives-standards quite extensive is a redundant investment from our point of view. Pleasantly surprised us the Sea Breeze café and the Sundowners Bar: very modern and tastefully decorated with colorful colours and casual lounge, great light installations and very courteous service for Maldives-standards moderate prices. In the Sea Breeze café we twice for lunch and a delicious sundae retreat, in the Sundowners Bar we have also the one or other cocktail approved. Unfortunately the main restaurant (gallery) on negative is: pure atmosphere of a cafeteria with a meals, the, except for the desserts, and a mass was also equal quality. There is the possibility, with booked hp fee required in the thai restaurant or one of the above two bars to eat, you only get 15% discount. The atmosphere in the above options is clearly nice (candlelight and the sound of the sea, with views of male), the quality of the food much better. The waiters were on the ball and very friendly in all areas, put before us by name and offered genuine service (not at all Maldives-without tip advance usual islands). room Our jacuzzi beach villa was top clean but looked rather old. The bath one saw the ravages of time. The water pressure in the shower (with two different shower heads a indoor shower ) and a rainstorm-shower is bad, the pressure of handheld showers on the jacuzzi is strong, but the water was only lukewarm. On the small, semi-covered terrace there were two chairs, but because of the modest dachüberstands with rains one can't sit here. In the 1st floor there was a tiny balcony, but also not waterproof. Beach towels were plentiful available. The mattress was for Maldives-standards pleasantly soft. The air conditioning was quiet and good, but smelled a bit musty. The closet is like Filitheyo also in the half open bathroom. Bathrobes and two umbrellas per room are available. During our stay in the area of standard rooms were just some kernsaniert. guests 40% asians, 20% russians, 30% europeans, 10% of all nationalities. Many families with children (it advertises Bandos also). hotel reef Positive: directly on arrival we were given a briefing by the service staff member of the front desk that you cannot do everything and what effect it has on the reef, if one beside it behaved. Furthermore, this each guest again in writing. Also on the beach there are signs everywhere, how to behave at the reef. There are two designated a - / exit to the reef, the close together in the field of Sundowners Bar beach chairs. At high tide but probably also other problem is at the reef edge. At first glance: disappointment. That should be one of the best the house reefs Maldives his? In the field of two exits korallenmäßig is pretty much everything, the reef roof is in most places over there. But: fish, fish and fish again. Already at the first snorkeling trip we saw partly no more water before loud rave about, stately reef sharks patrol at the reef edge all kinds, turtles, octopusse, fledermausfische, large tunas, moray eels and a rich fisching ground and korallenmäßig well maintained was the reef weiterbesonders in the field of Sea Breeze cafe (at the exit of Sundowners Bar rechtsrum comfortable here you need 1 hour snorkelling/one way). Hotel was during our holiday period hardly present, the view very good. diving Due to the shortness of the stay, and the forthcoming return flight we only made a dive on the reef. The base made a solid impression with spacious premises and several tauchbooten on its own diving center harbor. conclusion Bandos is a well-kept but due to its size, the number of rooms and the location 'busy' island. You are looking for a broad postkartenstrand here in vain. At the beach the couch situation is, in our view, unacceptable, if you want to make a seaside holiday, the many other islands recommended a. Who joy on and if you like snorkelling and diving (or two.) a well-kept under the starry sky and cocktails on the cafeteria-like atmosphere of the main restaurant, drink maldivian not disturb or to one of the other dining options can avoid, which is Bandos recommended. We are very low expectations after Bandos and were pleasantly surprised by the warmth of the island. read hotel review

We (45 and 56 years) were for the first time on the Maldives extremely satisfied and on Bandos. The beach and the reef were really great. On the Iceland - hopping trip (you can do, but you didn't have to), we were also in the chaaya resort and on Paradise Island. Disaster! Like Majorca. Bandos is small and very nice. The dolphin tour is highly recommended and in any case a candelight dinner right on the beach. The spa is fantastic, but very expensive. The additional costs (special drinks) are 'hard to get used to' 1.5 liter water costs ... 4 Dollar, a small beer 5 Dollar, squeezed juice and cocktails between 7 and 6.50 15 Dollar. A bit annoying is the early singing from the minaret (5 h), if you - as we were - a garden villa booked. The mosque is in the immediate vicinity, otherwise you will hear not. The staff is very friendly, the towels are changed 2 times/day, everything was very clean. Unfortunately - special russian guests - the ' place anytime on beach chairs' crept in. But it was prevented from the management immediately. Aircraft noise: 5-6 wasserflugzeugen /day is nothing to hear. A great barefoot island. read hotel review

    The hotel features the board restaurant, an indian and an à la carte restaurant. This is the only small drawback which i bercihten can. Due to the Maldives understand the chefs of course the fischegrichte outstanding to prepare. The fish is in every herstellungsvariante always recommended. There are problems in the preparation. The curry dishes or ind. Meat the mostly subdued or cooked are you could still let. What they can't are schnellgebratene meat, bland, tough and cold enough. This time not. Since bite even the sharks in the lagoon the hotel. We had once around à la carte restaurant you could also save. It is very expensive, my wife had lammkottelett ordered unfortunately only haifischtauglich.

We booked on Bandos Iceland our honeymoon and had a super nice time here. The staff was very courteous and we could recover very good. The beach was just beautiful. The hotel displays a large underwater world, which are already the snorkeling to be visible. (12$ on day fee for snorkels, fins, glasses) We had booked all inclusive, which we only recommend. The drink prices were otherwise minutes german restaurant level. The range of drinks is very good, there are 'brands', like coca Cola, Sprite etc. And high quality alcoholic beverages. Here is also a certain sport already included in ... the price so a little variation in the daily organization, will be brought so far you want to. Also enjoyed the spa, though you for applications more budget calculate tips than in good german spas. We were here from the service and the whole area impressed. read hotel review

    Since we booked half board, we took our breakfast and dinner in the gallery restaurant. Both the breakfast, and the evening meal there was a rich and very good selection of food. Breakfast: here we could, inter alia, from a range of breads, rolls, sweet pastries, jam, cheese (1 sort), sausage (1 sort), beans, sausage but also indian dishes. On a stove were every morning scrambled eggs, as well as diversified pancakes, french toast or similar the waiter served a coffee or tea, mineral water and juices are also available. Dinner: also here, you could between different breads to choose, a rich salad buffet, thai and indian dishes, but also potatoes, peas and carrots, pasta (tomato sauce and/or light sauce), rice. In the evening two/three chefs' live cooking ' made, where it for example meatballs, fish, barbecue, nasi goreng or similar were prepared. Drinks at dinner are the waiters ordered and must then be paid (the order was signed, paid for on departure). For lunch we often a snack at the sundowners bar. Also here the selection and the quality was very good. Prices: we have opposed to the extortionate all inclusive supplement decided (see above) and had therefore all drinks and mittagsspeisen pay. It was for us but expected. A Cola costs 4,5 American Dollar, beer 5,5 American Dollar, a thai curry lunch 14 American Dollar, pizza 9 American Dollar - everything always plus service fee and taxes.

    The service was all in all it was very satisfactory. The room in the morning (with new towels) and in the evening (the sand was way swept) cleaned. In the restaurant (breakfast and dinner) we had a very friendly waiters ( shahin ), the also a few phrases in german. We had booked half board and wanted to arrival then all-inclusive to book, since we were here in some evaluations had read, that it for 2 people for a week only 4 00 €would be. As we had asked they quoted us a price of 108 Dollar per person per day-which we thankfully declined. For the money, we can then more favorable the drinks and lunch to buy. What we got in terms of service did not like was the day of departure. Our flight went only in the evening to 23 o'clock. Check-out is already at 12 hours. We asked, if we had the room longer use (gladly also against payment), which however was not possible. Thus had we on the last day improvise and us after the beach stay at the gym shower. Bags stood in front of the lobby. The valuables, the lady from the front desk at the back of its office put. We could here a late check-out wish, or at least the offer it additionally-especially since the area was not completely booked. So we would not more such a late departure can choose.

    If you stay here is there is very probably snorkelling or go diving-what here definitely worth it. Even with the snorkeling one sees already a huge, colorful underwater world. We have used the time and a scuba diver diving course made: the diving school is good and has even a german speaking dive instructor ( ramune ). The diving we could along the hotel reef, then more the breathtaking underwater world enjoy. Who definitely not contact with sharks would like, on this island is in the wrong place. The diving, but also at the beach one does not fail, a shark to meet. The schwarzspitzen reef sharks are harmless, but in a size of partially 1.50 meters not for everyone the suitable sight under water. The sharks swim partly also right along the beach. The hotel has a volleyball court, a football field, a gym, where a bouleanlage a ping pong table, and darts facilities are available. The large pool (there are also umbrellas) we only from the outside looked at. He looks clean - we have him due to the beautiful beach but never beutzt. With entertainment the hotel very back. Only in the evening from about 18-22 hours something was offered such as a live band at the sundowners bar or the sand bar, magic show, crab races or similar

It is a well-kept 4 star resort with bungalows in different katego - rien, a beautiful beach and a private reef. Most of the guests come from China or Eastern Europe. There are three bars, a thai and the main restaurant 'gallery restaurant'. For shopping there is a souvenir and jewelry store. The souvenir shop, you could also water or wine and snacks. The rooms are around the outer edge of the island, except for some pool bungalows. In the inner part of the island are pool and staff buildings. The island is nicely planted, the paths are well-kept, on ... the beach were usually enough beach chairs available, but it must be mentioned, that the cushions even mitbrin gene must. In our first week the island was probably not fully booked, since it was nice and quiet. In the 2. week, at full capacity, we were a little annoyed by the volume at the gallery restaurant and at the beach. One had to say, that, since the beach almost around the entire island is, you could always find a quiet spot. But if you snorkelling want, you have forced the beach at the beach use, since only the two riffeingänge beach chairs. It was sometimes very loud and very busy, ignorant asians stomped despite signs with information on the corals around a little cheap holiday feeling. read hotel review

    We had the category 'jacuzzi beach villa' booked and were content thereby. For the honeymoon is this category very good. Unfortunately the bungalows are quite old, but they have a certain charm, the makes up for. Large highlight is the open bathroom and the jacuzzi. Unfortunately you can not long walk, otherwise, the motor to smoke but you could also very nice that ba the. Cleanliness could have been better but was still okay. Tv programs lie - ßen unfortunately something to be desired. There is only one wardrobe - this is unfortunately in the open bathroom, so the clothes quickly damp by the high air humidity. The bed was very large and nice, with the balcony directly outside, but the mattress was too hard. Sea view gave it due to the dense vegetation unfortunately not. During the 2. night we were greeted by an unpleasant noise waked and had umzie -booked. It was the broken air conditioning the neighboring villa. The villas are unfortunately partly so built close together, that the engines of neighboring air conditioning directly on the wall showing. We got however immediately on the next day another bunga-low, with which we the rest of the vacation were satisfied. It is generally, at the check in for a quiet room. The number of the beach front bungalows starts right next to the sand bar, where the evening entertainment, so that it a bit louder. It is, after a bungalow in the direction of the service harbour's questions. The bungalows feature a kettle. I have a daily from Germany own Cappuccino with tap water and no problems with the stomach can get. The water from the desalination plant has also not unpleasantly tasty.

    Also about the food you can no blanket judgment. It was very mixed. For breakfast there were - apart from the live cooking - always the same. The selection was poor. Fresh fruit or fruit salad was always available. Coffee was good. Lunch and dinner were satisfactory. The selection was a good size. Some dishes were very tasty. The meat was often prepared. Elsewhere it was hard for it. The potato side dishes were mostly completely failed. Fries wäh - rend the almost three weeks only once - in a hotel, this lots of families with small children houses, not a good idea. The vegetables also left somthing to be desired. The live cooking was mostly the best choice, there was always fresh fish and meat. Except for a few days we always found something and were full. At the bars we the sandbar and the sundowner's bar the most used. The cock- tails but it was sometimes very watery and the service even with low utilization too long time.

    The service was mixed. Some of the employees were very friendly and hard-working, other did not, so you can not a blanket judgment. Generally, women in conversation rather ignored - this seems attributable to be. With the service in the buffet restaurant we were satisfied - however, we have our regular waiters also plentiful tip. Without tips is not much. One gets this to be felt, when the main waiter times a day free, but overall you could live with it. Our roomboy was very nice, but the room could have been cleaner.

    The hotel offers a variety of sports activities at, which we didn't make use of. There is also child care. We spent the entire day only bathed and went snorkeling. The house reef of Bandos is very nice, even if most corals have died. But you can see many colorful fish and almost daily reef sharks. In the evening there is entertainment. The karaoke evenings and crab races etc. We avoided but the live music was partly very good. Once in the week also a maldivian evening with folklore entertainment.

    It is a well-kept 4 star resort with bungalows in different katego - rien, a beautiful beach and a private reef. Most of the guests come from China or Eastern Europe. There are three bars, a thai and the main restaurant 'gallery restaurant'. For shopping there is a souvenir and jewelry store. The souvenir shop, you could also water or wine and snacks. The rooms are around the outer edge of the island, except for some pool bungalows. In the inner part of the island are pool and staff buildings. The island is nicely planted, the paths are well-kept, on the beach were usually enough beach chairs available, but it must be mentioned, that the cushions even mitbrin gene must. In our first week the island was probably not fully booked, since it was nice and quiet. In the 2. week, at full capacity, we were a little annoyed by the volume at the gallery restaurant and at the beach. One had to say, that, since the beach almost around the entire island is, you could always find a quiet spot. But if you snorkelling want, you have forced the beach at the beach use, since only the two riffeingänge beach chairs. It was sometimes very loud and very busy, ignorant asians stomped despite signs with information on the corals around a little cheap holiday feeling.

    The resort is located approximately 20 minutes away by boat from the capital male, so it for families with children very attractive. Bandos is round of to their islands, at night are therefore nice impressions. But if a Robin-son-crusoe feeling searches, is on Bandos wrong. We as Maldives-beginners found the pre-stored islands interesting, due to the proximity of male also varied from flugsmöglichkeiten offered, the from far away islands may not have been possible.

For our 3. Maldives – trip we us this time, after sea and Kuredu, for Bandos decided, although the reviews in advance is not so hundred percent convinced us.

The island makes a good impression – very green and round-one notices but some corners and ends that it is one of the oldest resorts in the Maldives -was all very clean and well-kept –, as well as many facilities at the time completely renovated and expanded.

    Our booked category ' jacuzzi beach villa ' we really liked. The villa was beautiful and very well-kept-was everything you need is available – from bathrobe to free safe-i missed a nespresso machine in the room-this would be desirable. However one could with the kettle soluble coffee making facilities. A reservation reason for the category jacuzzi beach villa was the open bathroom in the standard categories and deluxe bugi is not available. For me is a open bathroom on the Maldives with and is a 'must'. So the bathroom was really great-the jacuzzi of course great – and above all in the rainy season this then but good follow up-we enjoyed the really enjoyed. In the living area had our bunig 2 air conditionings: one for the top floor and on the ground floor-this is great, because these separately adjust could and, for example, only the top or just below the climate could walk-we have this always 26 degrees and worked well-even if not very quiet. Of the villa was one with a few steps you were at the beautiful beach for us and the location was perfect.

    The all-inclusive guests find 1 restaurant available-the gallery restaurant- breakfast, lunch and dinner meals in buffet form. The food is the real downside of the hotel-even if the food was genierbar were-as we were of the presentation and choice but disappointed, since we the sea and Kuredu much better-sorry dear team-here is still much air upward and this is probably the main reason, why we 2 times superior would go after Bandos to fly. However, if you no high expectations on presentation and choice is a simple, tasty buffet, which was rather a good 3 star standard-of 4 stars is still far away. Although you always find a meal which you can eat, but as i am a vegetarian i already missed the selection-always with the curry then papaya landed. And sorry-who please need on the Maldives apples? The fruit choice for breakfast always the 3 same sorts of fruit limited – in one week there were exactly once mango and pineapple we never saw them. However there was always papaya and that was my luck. The desserts were always 3-4 different creams or cake-i have never found something i liked. Especially for the breakfast and dinner missed the change-topic evenings or similar could not detect the maldivian evening on friday was just like any other day-no highlights or special design. But i have to say, that i the ambiance in the restaurant liked a lot – the open design of the 3 rooms was ok, and we are more than happy to go there to go out to eat-was during our travels end may the hotel wasn't fully booked. Decoration was almost no – but everything was always clean and has a good impression made. The selection of drinks was on Bandos just like the us already known islands rather limited-the cocktails not particularly tasty and some things like for instance the ice cream you can confidently forget. As everywhere else on the Maldives the additional costs for the drinks were very high and if you don't all inclusive bay, a hefty bill on urlaubende. Whether all-inclusive, half board, full board or only fr must everyone for even calculate-we book always all inclusive then the costs from the outset clear and there is no bad surprises. The all-inclusive on the Maldives not with all inclusive for example in Karibik can easily be compared to is well known and one should simply its claims here not too high standards.

    All hotel staff are very friendly and try to get a good service to afford. From the waiters to the cleaning staff were all very hard and efficient. The check-in and check-out was smooth, fast and broken-german language. Our waiter in gallary restaurant shahin was very friendly and the drinks were always immediately brought to the table-here we have no complaints at all and felt well taken care of. Also in the bars the waiters were quite friendly-long waiting time we couldn't note-also than all-inclusive guest you were always served quickly. On the island is a ward with a doctor, as well as a in the middle of the island provided range of employees, which we did not visit however. The speed boat transfer from or to the airport was perfectly organized – also our luggage was by the staff in the bungalow and the settlement at the end of the vacation was correct.

Evening light entertainment from the usual events, such as crab race and a maldivian evening took place, and live bands. Other animation was not available-no Volleyball- or football for the guests – without entertainment here never buddies together. Water sports were given-, as well as tennis courts and billiards (surcharge).

    Location for us was perfect-only about 15 minutes speed boat - transfer from the airport male-so ideal after a long flight and if one only stayed one week on the island remains one wants to waste no time. As already often reported the location is naturally blessing and curse at the same time, whereby us past the flying seaplanes not really bother us as the boats, which incomprehensible way often with current motor in the harbor and the additional 'homemade' noise in the form of insektenbekämpfungsmaßnahmen with noisy equipment 2 times daily-and morning between 5 and 6 o'clock – and in the evening between 19 and 20 o'clock – thus was you every day exactly at 5:30 o'clock from insektenbekämpfungs team woke us up. The prospect of male on the horizon has me personally didn't bother us at all.

Very nice island with a great outer reef which can be reached very quickly is. The food was good and international and regional. Great beds were very comfortable to sleep. It was constantly being cleaned and swept very clean and the staff is very friendly. Spa and riya are very recommendable. The snacks in the seabreese are delicious particularly the wraps. The selection of the fruit buffet is the worst thing happened, there was always papaya, various melonensorten, pear, apple, roseapples, passion fruit sweet and juicy, yellow mango and on Sri Lanka, and many more there are very many breads ... salads and tons of essensaauswahl delicious. The evening entertainment was good and easy. We gave this island fully explored and have stayed in two weeks every day lots of new aspects discovered wunderwunderschön. Dare you also to the inland and'll meet interesting people know because all converse with a the employees are all very versed in english. Tip, behind the bungalow 223 has a orchideenhaus, there can one also rare specimens buy or just admire, at the rear of the garden, the vegetables are grown and there are always fresh crisp salad ☺ In the evening one should the bombastic stars at the beach and the countless clams and crabs, marine gastropods and bats marvel, also this page the island is very nice. read hotel review

Every day gave 2 shallow water, furthermore you could in the room tea or coffee cook, 10/20 meters to the beach indicated teebecher, magnificent. Half board was sufficient. Also the staff was very friendly and greeted to 95% from. We could the march described complaints not understand and had already fears. But none of that has happened. It were a few russians there, but no felt 200!. It were lots of families with small children (under 6 years) on the island. But also of which one was, except for the pool area, where it through the small children sometimes loud ... to, didn't bother us. The float planes were not as harassment found, on the contrary, which looked we gladly hach, because, finally, we had to also flies, on the Maldives to come. Very good was, that the island only 15 minutes by boat from the airport to reach is. To 9,5 hours flight a delight, not more 2 hours the seaplane to spend. On arrival there was right time a cool tea. The luggages were the bungalows and we got on the rapid a einfühunrg. However in english and the lady has a little fast spoken. A complaint of the airconditioning in the 2. week were within a hour. It is true, now and then diving groups of divers and snorkelers on the outer reef in. But also the was no more harassment. We were also there. The mask on, the fins and went loosely it:as in an aquarium. The prices for the drinks are expensive. There is little in the shop to buy, so enough sunscreen to bring their own. This also on the head, bathroom. The vertex instruct, because otherwise also with cloudy weather the sunburn. Ausgelesene books you can exchange. However, the room in the sports centre. You had to know that, because it not would look for. A clinic is on the island. The room - standard bungalow big enough. But there is as everywhere in the hotels on shelves, hooks on the wall and so on. A small file before the mirror was not enough, although behind the door enough plat would have been, both for hooks and shelf space. The representative of the travel companies fail to notice! The Neckermann-travel guide was every evening on the island. You lived there and was thus for everyone available. A day before departure we got the info in the bungalow, when the pastries in/out privileges and the shuttle boat, as well as the ablugdaten, assessment and so on. We especially good, that we cannot always (like in Spain or Turkey) already in the morning around 9:00 with any remmi demmi music bothering you. This peace, simply heaven. Colorful papageinen, you can hear many a time time to write. You also fly. Fledermaüse were evening from 5:00 p. m. to watch. Every day over 33 °c and high humidity around 85%. Since we had half board, we went always the same at 19:00 o'clock for dinner. It was diverse and tasted well for us. Fries we didn't find, we didn't need it either, but have seen, that children on the plate had. A complaint. Unfortunately, there was only once per week ice cream for dessert. This is a bit little. But fresh mango, passion fruit, melons, äpfle, pears, bananas, grapes, papaya made up for it. read hotel review

    The distance to the airport took about 15 minutes with the speedboat. Perfect for families, so that the arrival not longer. The distance to the beach is of the standard rooms approximately 50 meters. Shopping possibilities are small. There is a shop on the island. However for who wants it as shopping ☺ Other excursions are possible, but expensive.

The island Bandos has a pleasant size - on foot in 15 minutes to orbit and offered in its own description over 225 rooms of different categories from standard over deluxe room (in the normal segment) the jacuzzi beach or garden villas in upscale area to the two water villas and jacuzzi pool villa in the area. There are some other very simple rooms, but so not directly postable are. The resort is well maintained (at least in the areas, where the tourists) and make a good impression. We found it pleasant, that not always everything perfect is (leaves etc. ...) - is beautiful and natural and not fake. There were all sorts of guests there. Many germans (holidays), english, swiss, japanese, chinese, russians etc. All in all very good and pleasant. At the end felt more russians, the also cliché after behavior (eating habits, loud sprechorgane. As you stop knows).

    We had originally a deluxe room booked. Indeed, we want only a jaczzi beach villa, then but said, that we the money rather for diving, spa etc. Want to spend. We are quite early on Bandos arrived-so at 9 o'clock in the morning - and very sincerely at the front desk received and informed. We could then also early on our room so at 10 o'clock and did not until the afternoon wait. Our bungalow was one of the first when you are done with the gallery restaurant, however to the rear transferred, so you're not right on the sidewalk was. The room was spacious, clean and furnished nicely. One or another picture on the wall would have benefitted. However the condition of the room was good. Only the old crt doesn't so into the picture. Have subsequently seen, that in other rooms the tubes against flat screen scrrens changed. But you don't come for the tv on the Maldives ☺ there were always 2 deluxe rooms in a bungalow. In our case were these two with a connecting door separated from each other, the was locked. We noticed but already, that the room because of this very badly soundproofed was. The neighbors were but very noisy. At 13:30 us a call the front desk with the question, if we were interested in a free upgrade to a jacuzzi beach villa would have. We could only not at all believe (we want but originally this book rate category), until the room manager then came and told us, that the (loud) family next door (which on this day on the island arrived) more space needed. The plan was thus, which our room also available and us into a better category re-accommodate. Said and done. We got a jacuzzi beach villa quite close to at the front desk/ port (room 103). Only first i was concern, i had in another review read, that at the port constantly loud boats cruise and dinner the entertainment a direclty. The entertainment is never late into the night and at the end of most at the latest at 22 o'clock. The noisiest was once live music. That was really great, so that we anyway not in the room were. The botte at the port we did not bother us, since during the day we were always out. The villa itself is a little older than the deluxe rooms. I think, if repeatedly renovated, with the jacuzzi villas started. That means not, the this in a bad condition. However stop of everything already a little delicate. Great bedroom on the 2. floor and in our case with half-sea views (some have a tree, the view blocked before). And i personally liked the open bathroom to the back of the hotel very good. Clear has more insects than in a closed bathroom-at night the large black ants and hide themselves also gladly time in the toilet-but in the bungalow were insects (except for mosquitoes) no issue. So if i go on a far away island drive and a room with open bathroom have, i should not be over insects complain (as has already been done). For me, this is simply a piece of nature and takes me a bit of the ' perfektheit' a touristenresorts. I do not want to sterile holiday on a secluded island in the indian ocean ☺ the bathroom is as far as nice, although not to the standards german craftsmanship. The jacuzzi is also gorgeous and well, if you evening another round want to relax. Air conditioning is available we walk and walk and walk... Minibar is stocked, but expensive. We didn't use it. Coffee and tea (with kettle), as well as daily fresh water (2 times 500 milliliter with us) were free. There are telephone, a safe and a hair dryer. Travel adapter, our plugs in the outlets to use are sometimes available. This is the big but: as good the villa pleased and so nice the jacuzzi etc. There are. We booked for us states, if we come again was enough for us in a standard room. Most of the time of the day you are just traveling and this is in the evening actually a bed in an air-conditioned room and a shower. Lots of space in the villa is nice, but i can also a couple of days do. I am someone, gladly bathe and in whirlpool aalt. We enjoyed the jacuzzi only 2 times used (1 times together and 1 time i alone ), so that we at the end but were glad, this category not totally booked. The amount of money for the more expensive rooms we saved the next time and go but often to the spa and diving. As the money is definitely better.

    5.0

    There was a main restaurant-the gallery where breakfast, lunch and dinner buffet style is served. The variety of dishes is large enough, so that everyone can find something suitable, but not too big, so that a sensory overload get. We liked it very much and mostly also tasted good. There is international cuisine. Furthermore there are for the nachmittagssnack the seabreeze cafe. It was always relatively empty, but you should still have time. Basement as everywhere very polite, but the snacks were not not the 'distillers'. There is a thai restaurant, which we however didn't use. I never noticed, that it is open. The sundowners bar at the allegedly most beautiful beach section is very pleasant for a drink at sunset. But so often we were also not.

    Shortly before our vacation i have here a review read, in which the service really bad unfavorable reviews is. The i had a little the dreaming it. I have no idea, as this man his opinion has been formed. But we have really as well as without exception all employees as very friendly felt. The waiters were always gladly a small talk and we with the meal never for a long time for our beverages waited. Now and then in the sundowners or in the sand bar sometimes lasted, but the waiters were never rude or have a bad service. What a bit annoying is, that you despite all inclusive had to sign for everything. This helps the hotel the overview of spent drinks to preserve. At the front desk is also a german-speaking woman employee if someone with the english language difficulty. The cleaning of the rooms has a partly somewhat disorganised personnel impression. Times were fresh towels, then suddenly twice since. Time was the floor swept, even this was not the case. But in the evenings the room boy always go after that to rights seen and a little fine. The room service (which is not so bad, it was) i see the most room for improvement.

  • Sport & Leisure

    A main reason, why we have Bandos decided were the possibilities to dive. There is a very well run padi diving center and a nice nearby reef for snorkeling and diving. There are daily boat trips to many different sites offered. The lobster station at the nearby reef direct neighboring island really enjoyed. There were hardly any Hummer, but a very nice underwater landscape. I recommend to anyone absolutely recommend a nachttauchgang at the nearby reef to make. It was really great. The pool was also very pleasant. We were not often, but if, then it was at any time a problem to get a beach chair. It was always very empty and not too noisy. Furthermore there are a lot of further options Bandos the sport to float. A sport center with badminton, and squash court, table tennis, gym etc. Tennis courts, football pitch and volleyball court. Also in the water there are lots of possibilities. In addition to diving and snorkeling, the water sports centre all erdenkliche on the water. Water skiing, Banana Boat, jet skiing etc. Fortunately, hardly any people motorized water sports, what the noise level at the beach very low held. The beach on Bandos is quite nice. We were usually in the morning in the beach section next to the thai restaurant and in the afternoon at the sundowners bar. We always got a beach chair - the beaches are in general not crowded. There are everywhere at the beach or in the bushes behind showers. What's also worth mentioning is the spa. It is really great and gives a totally pleasant feeling. Very quiet in the area, and you can simply the body dangle. The prices are of course also correspondingly. We paid 1 40 $plus tax per person for an 85 one-minute massage. The application was a; mix of swedish and thai massages and end with an indian head massage. We found it to be both gorgeous and the masseusen (unlike the previous hotel, where we were) understood their handicraft. A clear recommendation so. For who wants it before us after the treatment in the spa and the jacuzzi, cold plunge pool, beach chairs, etc.. Use. We have a bit take a break from everyday life. There there is also daily changing offers. While we were there there was still easter specials.

    The island Bandos has a pleasant size - on foot in 15 minutes to orbit and offered in its own description over 225 rooms of different categories from standard over deluxe room (in the normal segment) the jacuzzi beach or garden villas in upscale area to the two water villas and jacuzzi pool villa in the area. There are some other very simple rooms, but so not directly postable are. The resort is well maintained (at least in the areas, where the tourists) and make a good impression. We found it pleasant, that not always everything perfect is (leaves etc.) - is beautiful and natural and not fake. There were all sorts of guests there. Many germans (holidays), english, swiss, japanese, chinese, russians etc. All in all very good and pleasant. At the end felt more russians, the also cliché after behavior (eating habits, loud sprechorgane... As you stop knows). I thought, no soccer shirt-guests there was ☺ oh well except for the football club bvb-fan of sometime suddenly showed up and three days his black synthetic-shirt turned on ☺

    The advantage of Bandos is definitely the short transfer of about 15 minutes. Means but also, that you regularly the starting airplanes hears and sees. Those who have problems, should another island. I do nothing and it is also not so, that a frequency as the frankfurt airport is. The beach is almost from all rooms from in less than a minute walking distance. That is beautifully for the tourists, but actually bad for the islands. The monsoon makes sure, the face of the islands over the year changes. Sand is on the one hand the island threadbare and at the other side again washed ashore and vice versa. By a staff development are the hotels forced its beaches to protect. This is done by ugly sandsackbarrikaden or concrete walls on the reef or in extreme circumstances, even directly at the beach. Such sandbags on Bandos right by the harbor and at different places protect small wall at the beach the island. Positive Bandos also, that it hardly water villas is, the to the reef were built. The tourists as all mood from, but this form of riffbebauung contributes to the scrap the islands with, as the natural wasserströmungen be changed. A side note: water villas were earlier the cheaper rooms, which one only has built, because land no more place was. Somehow all mood funky, so the things now the most expensive rooms are. Disadvantages are the many midges, the more frequently than on land are to be found. I do not drive to the Maldives, for shopping to go. There is Bandos a store, but it is stop of full souvenirs and totally overpriced. There is also a boutique, to which i can say nothing but. There were some excursions, the most is standard ( nachfischen, island hopping, dolphin tour, kuda Bandos ferry etc.). Except a visit on kuda Bandos we didn't go on any excursions. Kuda Bandos has a very nice extensive sandy beach. You can quiet times a before or afternoon. However nothing more.

After 2008 and 2011 we were for the 3. time on Bandos, after we have positive experience. My reports from march 2008 and march 2011 ('Stefan') are perhaps still to find. What is this time we noticed, what has changed? The percentage of russians on the guests has now according to a manager about 40% reached. The russian language you can hear all the corners and ends. Some behave effectively in accordance with the usual prejudice, in particular in the restaurant noticeable. Russian eating habits are nothing special good, if you have the vision has. Chinese were only in smaller ... number among the guests. But that stomped back around on the reef. The staff in the restaurant is attentive and endeavors more than earlier those guests' wishes, a certain service. Also the tips now seems more attention to find. In the evening before departure our bed had a beautiful blütenschmuck and our table was to eat as well as decorated. The organization of the entire holding works still very good. A complaint about night noise in the room next door (no russians, swiss!) Worried the duty officer manager immediately and ligated this conviction. You obviously from the hotel large value peaceful atomsphere for all of the guest. Good so! As previously mentioned, the walls are between the rooms so sound proof running, that from the neighbours hear anything. A real boon to the thin walls on the other islands, the you rather than privacy should call. Overall, both the buildings, as well as the furniture etc. Technically in an amazingly good condition. The official check-in time is after as 2:00 p. m. If you for example at 10:00 o'clock on the island arrives, it may be, that the room actually only around 14:00 is available. The stocks on the reef are every year become less, like us also expert guests confirmed, the every year %blank%. Some species lack almost completely. The snorkeling was worth it but still always. Whole shiploads of other islands visit daily the reef from Bandos for snorkelling. This was probably the reason. 2008 the dolphin cruise really happy and we have seen some beautiful pictures. 2011 it was already much less and now we could only say, that the dolphins still there. They sidestep the boats, the mit fullspeed to hold, much space from. Jumping dolphins next to the boat does not exist more. The dolphins i can well understand. In the remaining are all excursions opposite 2011 up to 40% more expensive. If now for example for a transfer after male (there and back ever about 20 minutes drive), including tax almost $40 per person be required, then this is already quite much. The concerned us however less. After the previous stays at Bandos and other islands we have all offered trips already several times and go not again. The summit is a manta-snorkel excursion for $60 plus tax. Guests reported, that you not a single manta saw, sorry, almost $70 per person are gone. The cocktails at the sundowners bar, and possibly also to the other bars are of a poor quality. If you for example a Tequila Sunrise for $10 ordered, then you get a glass of, the content of which looked like orange juice with ice and it taste also sunday Orange juice for $10 per glass, with at best homeopathic traces of Tequila. That should star hotel also in an islamic country work better. People, drink beer, as you know, what one has. In all the rooms are now repeaters were installed, that means wireless internet access is available with the best signal strength and up to 2000 kbit/s in every room possible. This is at least twice the speed of the, what the telekom at our residence in Germany offers! The other side of the coin: one hour costs $5 and must on the piece to be consumed, a division among several logins on the following days is no longer possible. Wouldn't free internet-access an excellent advertising and for the hotel much more effective, than the petty cash of $5 per hour? Now was in all the rooms an exchange of the old tube tv for new lcd from Sony. A tip: if you have a computer and a hdmi cable or a usb stick, can his photographs or films on the television in large to look at. As you could also movies to watch from home, because the boring dw is the only german under about 25 channels. The entertainment has opposite 2011 weakend a bit and is now more on kinderbelustigung from. Who show and night life are looking for, is here already wrong. The final statement was a changes. Earlier you got the whole package of the signed documents and to the principle flipbook quickly review, whether inadvertently something wrong including side was. With credit card paid after conversion of dollarbetrages in maldivian Rupees. Today, a, list of billed amounts presented, the less control. Correct she was probably. When paying with card one has the choice, whether in us $or in Euro paid to be. Please note: the conversion in Euro sets apparently an extremely unfavourable exchange rate to reason. You should us $choose. At the end the crucial question: we can Bandos recommend it, would we stay there again? A clear yes. Despite the small restrictions offers Bandos – after subjective assessment-compared with other islands always a reasonable value for money, a short boat, a well-organised hotel and a beautiful reef for snorkelling. read hotel review

For guests the for the first time in the Maldives are, perhaps the right choice, but for the maldivian fans to recommend in no case, since the disappointment was too! The island is actually ok and one half is the beach beautiful-the other half the island looks really not só nice (concrete and sandbags, the the island before digging protect and thus also notwen'dig are). Initially we stayed in a standard room (very recommendable, the most beautiful beach section the island beach chairs) used, which absolutely okay was we are then against an extra charge in the situation (nr. 175) ... with private pool 'directly at the beach moved, the is really great, but not quite as clean, as the standard rooms ☹ what one actually for the price expect can. The garden with a pool is also quite nicely laid out and one could not complain-just on the bars, the diving school and the kids club was as it should be! Now we come to the points, the us the vacation really maggoty made - we had all-inclusive-an absolute error, because on this island not the guest determined, when and how much it to get a drink, but the waiter and we are talking only of soft drinks such as Cola, Fanta and juice, not of alcohol! Every drinks order took his time of minutes. 10 minutes to over very often 20 minutes (clearly a Cola bottle to open takes just his time). Or they come at all not at all to, because they were forgotten. The gallery restaurant the service on the left-hand side an absolute impudence, here is a troublemaker and this will be a very clear ' eyes' shown, because one already again a table 'new' setting must. Here you will also pointed out, if you 8:30 p. m. still eat (meal time from 19 to 21 o'clock), that it was late! The medium-sized sector and rights area in the gallery restaurant is better, however also not satisfactory. If you are 1 drinks for every meal time get, you can estimate itself lucky-more is extremely rarely. If you have the idea of just 2 orders effect u'nd the 2. waiters, the beverages on the table looks (the almost aufgetrunken are), he is head-vibrating with the ordered drinks again from it is incredible but true! It is also not so, and the waiters from. No. You must look lock and partially also apparent. Also tip improves the situation, so we only at the start which have made and later at all nothing at all more! We have the money for a tip was, daily the mini bar-drinks served. You get the impression, as if the waiters the statement, in all-inclusive tourists to 8., so that you little and inexpensive to get a drink as possible, because flat water you can get relatively fast, in comparison to Cola, Fanta and juice as you wait forever and then so was thirsty, that you almost in a auftrinkt. Our kids you actually on the drink remember, but on this vacation it was very often so, that they wept, because you thirsty and nothing. Such a thing may not be and is an absolute insolence. We complained with the waiters directly, from there it was even worse with the service the nobody was. - at the sundowners bar after 22 o'clock with the words' sorry all inclusive is closed ' welcome. Not very inviting ☹ - most employees have your smile in bed forget so grumpy views we know from the Maldives not at all-it is also hardly greeted, if you on the island met-it gives even coworkers, the vacationers ignore them and on the greet not at all react and with bad face simply look away-sad but unfortunately reality! - as we the pool villa moved we arrived at night with 2 sleeping children after 'home' and found no single cot or extra bed before (which but, and also was clear the one in get)-we had to us all 4 the double bed crimpings or just in the middle of the night still cots orders and wait, which we didn't. The pool villa (nr. 175) is very dirty in comparison to standard bungalows here after withdrawal auch'h no glass cleaned or the glass doors of toilet and shower-so just returned on the door 2 handprints from the inside can be seen, the no longer leave (very appetizing). The cleanliness here more than to be desired. If the competent housekeeper then pointed out, was only 'the but i cleaned, he didn't know why the now dirty since' back. - the roomboy Arif the standard bungalow was very clean and absolutely so, as it for Maldives typical, exactly like of the pool bar waiters (i forgot the name, he has fewer hair and has been working for over 7 years by the pool) he had fun with their work and service was absolutely great, as were laudable the employees ladies in the sand bar exactly like at the front desk-there was not a single unfriendly woman as should the men an example to take. The beach and the kids club were also super. So there was actually a few a few exceptions, the our holiday mood a little aufhellten! You can say ok one is on vacation and has no haste yes, but one also wants not the entire vacation spend, a waiter to on the beverages or food to wait-finally, the great weather and the beach. You get but unfortunately almost everywhere on the island as a störenfried and absolutely undesirable unfortunately! It seems to one in such a way, as if we have to a drink beg in the hope, that you actually get. In conversation with other all-inclusive tourists, it was issued which equally and those already repeated on the Maldives were, as we were also absolutely disappointed and could the number of stars couldn't understand! We are the 6. time on the Maldives and this was with distance the most expensive (€11.900 plus 2000 us dollar on site) and the worst holiday we have ever had ☹ a great shame and we are not really very demanding and eager to please. Conclusion Bandos never again, we are cured! I really wonder where the many good reviews and the 4.5 stars again! read hotel review

Diplomatically expressed are the disadvantages of 'Bandos Iceland resort & spa' the biggest benefits. By the proximity to male and the airport, the often long transfer by seaplane. 10 minutes with the speedboud from the airport and one Bandos. The island is huge, offers a diving school, various other sports and for example the annhemlichkeit a well-equipped doctor practice. Certainly that is one of the reasons, why many families with children and baybies on the island vacation make. We had prior to through various internet portals over the resort informed. We can not understand, as this resort to the many ... positive opinions is. Speculation about are close. Simply put we were Bandos grossly enttauescht. Before 15 months we spend for the same amount a wonderful holiday another resort, the sustainable for Maldives loved it was. On 'Bandos Iceland resort & spa' is the audience very mixed. Next to a few french, english and german are on the island about felt 3000 russian building. The eastern european guests not the most unpleasant thing are. But more about that later. The food. A total catastrophe. 80% fast food the widerlichsten art. Salads only on mayonnaisebasis. Noodles, fries and ketchup. Burger, sandwich and chips at the bars. We felt as the herd on futterdrog. The highlight was one evening lamb shank from the grill. The following days there was lamb every imaginable variant. To the spaghetti salad with lamb. No joke! Very good were the daily curry dishes, there definitely cooked. However the the atmosphere a station concourse, of the restaurant itself, also not help. No sea view. No atmosphere. Screaming children and russian without manners at the buffet. To the desserts, everything fertigkuchen, was daily a chocolate and a beerensosse enough. Itself the children have this zuckersosse not long gone. The island. On Bandos one is constantly from motorendroehnen surrounded. If not one of the major verkehrsflügzeuge of male starts or lands, überflieg one of the wasserflügzeuge the island. Otherwise always 30 to 35 boats around the island, always are in a state of flux. Should in the afternoon a certain peace are, is certainly a begeisterungsfähiger holidayers his new passion for water skiing or jet skiing on the Maldives realize must. We had us for one of the larger jacuzzivillen decided, in the hope a bit more peace and quiet too. As the large and expensive bungalows does not have its own beach chairs are attached, you had to after breakfast with a bit of luck still a free sun lounger. The manage you from our beach section the view between the boats through directly to the incinerator close to male. The smoke you could day and night over the sea drag see. Also no joke! About meal and taste of the food you could argue, but that is not what you are on a Maldives expected. The reef. Here we were surprised, the because of the many boats, partly diving excursions to other islands, a fish to see. If the groups of up to 20 asian citizens, in their ganzkörperschutzanzügen fin to fin, the reef had left, we surprisingly nice places discovered. Lots of fish, sharks, a rays and even a sea turtle we can watch. The absolute highlight one afternoon (very strong tide), however, was a group of 8 adult shisha enebelten emiratesen. While searching for the reef are these with beach shoes armed across all corals to the reef run. The call and complain the hotellstuff could this special copies of the ignorance of their way off. Conclusion. We are glad about any potential guest of 'Bandos Iceland resort & spa ', due to our opinion for another island decides. Bandos also has its beautiful and peaceful places. Someone should the issue around the food wasn't important, so the pleasant and favorable standard certainly a possibility for a 'cheap' holiday with Maldives-feeling. Still erwahnenswert are approximately 500 tagesgeaste on the island. The daily crews the airlines are the most pleasant. The hostesses descend off thaiair in their beautiful clothes are really a feast for the eyes, however also not the, what you on an island in idischen ocean We feel our money ripped off. It is reasonable value for money not at all. Better stay at home, as again 'Bandos Iceland resort & spa '. Shame about the vacation, shame about the money. We wanted to more than just Maldives-feeling, and that is it only a couple miles away for the same amount. read hotel review

We had a total of 5 times on the Maldives, always only maximally 4 stars, this island with 4.5 stars but absolutely overestimates, the others were much better! I think, the island lives of the many repeatern, the return, because it is not different and the resort, one of the oldest is. We met a couple, which already 12 years goes, because the island (and this applies to) very near at the airport and you become seasick easily. Ok, everyone should know but i can only recommend, also times' the ' to look! The service is bad and the ... employees are mostly bad mood, so little smiled as we were in this beautiful country never!

Time on the Maldives and the island was with large by far the worst, at least if you the service regards! A few examples of this from its own, recently won experience: In the 'Sea Breeze' restaurant you can from 15 to 17 o'clock a snack nehmen-mondays: tuna or cheese sandwich (extremely small ☺ with french fries gets but only tea, coffee or water everything else is not all inclusive! But in the 50 steps away sand bar with a view of the, with a concrete wall surrounding harbor (!) You can all soft drinks, just nothing to eat ☺ so if you Cola to the frits wanted to drink, you're out of luck! In the pool area, however, you get all soft drinks but no (!) Tea or coffee! A scoop of ice cream costs 3 $or a magnum ice cream 6.5 $explain the time your children! Shakes and everything else costs, cocktails! There was again only in the sand bar on a narrow 5 cocktails comprehensive all-inclusive card is also beer gives it only lions for 'all-inclusive' adequate there is no tiger beer or heineken for etc. And the tastes like the 'all-inclusive' cocktails for the cure! I even think that the cocktails specially badly to be made so that you the other - really probably tasting drinks and snacks-ordered and paid for! Also play a game of billiards is for example not included in the 'all inclusive' contain, from 20:00 the hour costs 6 $on a abgeranzten table! The mini bar in the bungalow is of course not inclusive-what do you expect for 4.5 stars ;-( We have still more people, with a 'all-inclusive' band as we rotated and were totally disappointed! At the sundowners bar at 23:00 welcomed with 'it's closed for all-inclusive, sorry' in doing so, i wanted to only a bottle of water in the take a bungalow ☺ you have the all inclusive small band at the arm surprise you thus not if you don't smiled ;-( The high point is however that you as all inclusive outsiders at the sundowners bar the beverages only dependent depending on the mood or better said the tips to the beach take! After it a week with us super was we soft drinks and prosecco in plastic cups could carry my mrs in the 2. week with ' only water is Carry forward erlaubt' and actually it helped also no complaints and no reference to the preceding week! First the next evening and großzûgige tips on the waiters helped the closest zag miraculously from it ran from this day almost like lubricated and we received everything as in advance! Our summary therefore : definitely not all-inclusive walkest, better the money and on the ground eating and drinking at that point in time and select location where it would like it to be, as all-inclusive was worth it on this island in comparison to some of the other on the Maldives absolutely not! Salemp no smile surly okay food but good kanntinenessen tasty plenty of choice but definitely not more than three stars. Service at the food there was exactly 1 times beverages to ask any more and you have to the waiters questions. Average lead time in all of the restaurants/bars on the islands minutes 15-20 minutes

    Pool was okay, the employees at the pool bar was one of the few, where the service and also the friendliness agreed!

    We had a total of 5 times on the Maldives, always only maximally 4 stars, this island with 4.5 stars but absolutely overestimates, the others were much better! I think, the island lives of the many repeatern, the return, because it is not different and the resort, one of the oldest is. We met a couple, which already 12 years goes, because the island (and this applies to) very near at the airport and you become seasick easily... Ok, everyone should know but i can only recommend, also times' the ' to look! The service is bad and the employees are mostly bad mood, so little smiled as we were in this beautiful country never! Maldives, we will be back, on Bandos but surely never more!

    The sea is at high tide relatively dirty! The house reef offers surprisingly lots of fish however therefor it is so broken trampled, there should be a few, until not any beautiful intact corallen more! The 'banana reef' is great diving spot in the immediate area it is however absolutely no comparison to other Maldives atolls. There can of course the resort nothing for it, but the proximity to male one sees itself underwater at the strong pollution and the rusty trash!

We have the island 'Bandos Iceland' on the internet found. All our expectations were met. The information agreed - we didn't get disappointed. We were in the easter vacations, the weather was perfect. On the average about 30 degrees, at 2 days we had rain, otherwise always amazing sunshines. The nearby riff is about 50 meters away from the beach and very nice. Lots of fish, even reef sharks and a turtle, we can see. We would no island more without reef book. We stayed in deluxe bungalows. This were very clean and spacious. read hotel review

    The number of restaurant was very enough. We had all-inclusive and always ate therefore in the gallery restaurant. The afternoon tea's were in a separate bar, but we didn't really need it. We 2 families were, we found all inclusive very convenient and pleasant. The beverage prices are violently and beach chairs in our opinion on the german prices. The food was very varied and delicious. There were always either meat or fish were freshly grilled/pan-fried. Not so beautiful we found, that not always and everywhere the all-inclusive offer could be accepted. For example was by the pool no coffee, ice cream, be paid separately.

    The waiters was very friendly. For an extra tip us (7 people) in the restaurant was a table reserved and with our wunschgetränken set. The bungalows were always clean, the roomboy came 2 times a day. Overall we felt really good.

    The pool was quite large and the children liked it. Kids club was available, we have but we didn't make use of it. (kids are 11 and 14 years old). Sports activities were not offered, which actually was a pity, that would maybe a volleyball game or similar, shown. Apart from that everything was sufficiently available.

    Our island was about 25 transferminuten (boat) from male. The short transfer was after the long flight very pleasant. Ideal the nearby riff!

Beautiful island, fantastic beach with lots of palm trees, interesting reef to the entire island, cosy places especially sun- downer -bar. Unfortunately, most of the waiters somewhat pflegmatisch and unmotivated, despite high price level's, there appears to be no participation in turnover. The kitchen staff seemed rather stressed-to other islands there was always friendly faces and a funny lyric from the chef-that was not sunday At the front desk one is likewise inflexible-except the standardprogrammen is not possible. A trip to male for example was despite vielfachem the boat traffic not possible. Unless one pays an utopian price. All in ... all but you can good have a vacation. However, we certainly the next time on another island. read hotel review
