Initially we booked in a 'Classic Room' which although clean, it was very basic and disappointing. We therefore upgraded to a 'Standard Room' which was far superior in every way. The room was spacious, very clean and in a lovely position on the beach. It was well worth the additional cost of the upgrade.

Nice Resort, half board suited us, breakfast and dinner, gave us lunch to sample the other restaurants - Sea Breeze, really lovely food. Room Service also available. Rooms are standard, last refurbed in 2005, but kept clean, 2x 1ltr glass bottles of water provided each day. Badminton, Squash and tennis courts. Gym is rather simple, but will meet your requirements for a bit of weights workout, also has cardio-eqmt and spin classes. Good array of Water sports, jets-ski, parasailing, wter skiing, Stand up paddling, banana boats...relatively dear....Scuba Diving and Snorkling eqmt and trips available, ad Whale Shark watching from the dive center, expensive.... deep sea fishing, also expensive and various other excursions

Very nice resort island <30 min from Malé airport

Pros: Although resort was having ~300 guests, it still felt quiet and peaceful. Very good snorkeling right from the beach with a lot of sea life to observe.
Location: Many diving sites nearby, Activity centers on the beach and within the resort offered lot of options. Snorkeling with Manta Rays excursion.
Very nice snorkeling right from the Bandos beach, a lot of excursions were available. Although Bandos was operating at full capacity, there was still peace and tranquility around. Dive Bandos recommended, especially Mohamed Ibrahim very friendly and professional dive guide. Snorkeling with Manta Rays was very nice experience.
