Fabulous staff and Fabulous island
The staff were fabulous and work so very, very hard. They do everything with a smile. The island is beautiful and close to Male so short transfer. Something to be mindful off when booking an island in the Maldives, if you don't want a long transfer after a long flight. I have no complaints

Disliked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
The services at Malahini Kuda Bandos was very poor to say the least. There was never enough bath towels in the rooms and you have to continue to call hotel reception for towel change. They rationed water in this island, you have to pay for water once you use up 2 bottles of water in a day. The only thing we liked was the island had a lot of water sports activities so that was nice to see.

Property is a little dated, but overall in good shape. We booked a beach villa for our stay of 8 days. Really enjoyed being able to walk 40 ft to the beach. We did the AI package! I will say the drinks are limited on the All Inclusive, but overall it was still worth it!
