Bandos is a very nice resort - close to Male / airport - it was ideal for my needs - a short 3 night all inclusive stay before joining a dive boat. I went for the superior beach villa and was not disappointed. Close to the dive centre and great view of the beach. Immaculate/ clean / semi open bathroom was fantastic- the all inclusive includes the mini bar - restocked daily and the drinks options were fine. Nice pool with small swim up bar ( the bartender was great - can’t remember his name - sorry ! ) all the staff were helpful and friendly and too top it off I received an ebookers vip early check in ( 9am ) which really helped with the early arrival from Abu Dhabi ! All in all a fabulous resort - Close to the airport ! Would definitely return again !

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.

Gym is rather simple, but will meet your requirements for a bit of weights workout, also has cardio-eqmt and spin classes.

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.
