We travelled to Bandos in first half of Jan-2020 and had a fantastic time.
From the moment we arrived we were looked after extremely well. All of the staff were incredibly helpful and friendly and we could not have asked for more. Our rooms were cleaned promptly every day and were spotless.
As we went along with a child, we went all inclusive one so that we could eat & drink whenever we wanted and this was the right choice for us. Child facilities are also present in the resort, having kids club and kids pool....kids club organises different activities every day to keep kids engaged. The restaurant also has options for kid specific menu but it is limited to few fast foods items.
The Buffet has a very good spread of food items, but very few options for Vegetarian.

We had a great time and would definitely go back.

Room tip: Whenever you book a room ask for the room nearer to beach to enjoy the view & sound of ocean.

I highly recommend as we loved our stay in the beautiful island.
The booking was easy and they responded to all my enquires and emails.
Upon arrival to the airport, we were picked up and transported without a delay.
When we arrived, everyone was very nice and welcoming, they explained everything we needed to know in details and we didn’t wait long for our villa to be prepared.
The beach villa we stayed in was very clean and beautiful. It had everything we needed and more.
The food was delicious and the service was great.
The staff were all very friendly and attended to our requests fast.
The island was very clean and family friendly.
The checkout was very smooth. One of the staff noticed that our bag was broken and he tried to fix it without us asking.
We were taken to the airport on time.
Don’t miss the Sushi at the Sea Breeze which was amazing & the live band (The Wood) at the Sand Bar.

Unfriendly and unflexible for Crews. Better options available on the Maledives. Fellow crewmember tried to visit me from the Sheraton Island for a coffee in the afternoon. Reception was extremly unfriendly and ask him to leave

The property is nice with good & clean rooms(stayed at deluxe room). Child facilities are better than other budget resorts, having kids club and kids pool....kids club organizes different activities every day to keep kids engaged.
The restaurant also has options for kid specific menu but they are just limited to few fast foods.
The restaurant buffet is ok with few options for vegetarians.
The beach is above average for budget resort. Its clean but has small rocks at many places...still you can find some decent spots within a short walk around the island. A barrier has been setup on the beach at the sunrise side of the island.
The staff on whole was not very courteous except for few members.
Overall had a good stay with my kid.
