  • Liked: Cleanliness, amenities

Some areas of the resort are a little tired but they are renovating at the moment. The house reef is badly damaged but still supports some very nice marine life. The resort doesn’t feel overcrowded at all even though there were a lot of people staying there. The staff are super friendly and nice but provide incredibly slow service. One morning we waited over 40 minutes for breakfast in the see breeze and then only got half of what we had asked for and even some of that was wrong. . We were told the waiter was new so this problem should fall on the manager as no one was supervising the poor guy. Over all we had a great week and I would probably stay there again.

On the money wise, Bandos is too cheap compare to all the 5 Star resorts in Caribbean area, Hawaii and Bora Bora. All the staffs are so friendly. Salad bar, pastry and deserts are wonderful. They did really good job to run their restaurants . Orchid spa is affordable price and I had wonderful time in there. 👍👍👍👍👍. Love you.
