Great Resort, unbeatable location and wonderful staff. We had the best time of our life over the 8 days spent in the hotel just last week. Could not ask for more. Staff is so friendly, amenities are amazing and management makes you wish all hotels were this well managed. Although quite a distance from the Pacific Northwest, we may consider visiting the Maldives again and staying at Baros.

Highly recommend Bandos. We went on the all inclusive package in a deluxe room. The room was impressively clean. The beaches were beautiful. You really clear your mind at this place. The all inclusive buffet was "okay." We all found something we could each at each meal. If you want to go to one of the other restaurants on the island they will give you a credit of $20 per adult and $10 per child if you are on the all inclusive package. They also offer room service through the Sea Shore café. Good food at the Sea Shore. We ate dinner at Huvan one night and it was so terrible my wife an I both sent our meals back. Huvan is nice for drinks, but I don't recommend the food. The A/C unit in the room covers one half of it. Tip: If you get rollaway beds (we got two for the kids and they were very comfortable), position them by the other bed, not by the door, so they can get A/C. The WIFI was good enough for basic surfing, but don't expect to stream videos. The staff in reception and in the cafeteria were very friendly. The guys running the water sports center were duds. They wouldn't rent equipment or provide lessons for wind surfing (it's too windy was the excuse), but right after they told me that, they took off and went wind surfing themselves (three days in a row this happened). We did use the tennis court, badmitton, pool, and foozeball in the recreation center. They were all in good shape and we had a lot of fun with the kids.

I spent 8 amazing nights at Lux South Ari Atoll in November. This is a really beautiful resort. So much attention paid to little details. I cannot say enough about the staff. Everyone always says hi, goes out of their way to be helpful and make sure you have a great stay and were just generally nice. I met both the manager and general manager several times throughout my stay and feel they are a great example for the rest of the staff to follow. The manager, Mamoun, even gave me a ride to breakfast one morning. I really enjoyed the food and the drinks. The all-inclusive package was really good with the variety of food and drinks that were available and covered. The resort is quite large and there were a lot of people staying there but you would never know it. There was always space by the pool or on the beach. Never an issue finding a table for dinner. Island shuttles were frequent so you never had to worry about walking too far if you didn't want to. The rooms were very comfortable and the staff did an amazing job keeping them clean and as sand free as possible. Some of the little details including the healthy island made ice cream, the hidden messages in bottles and the secret bar were just fun little extras. I would recommend the resort to everyone and look forward to staying here again.
