Very friendly, fantastic staff and a great house reef. Rooms are a bit tired but bed very comfortable. Food is varied. All inclusive drinks are good. Beach and footpaths are well maintained. A number of guests left belongings on sun beds all day and overnight, which was very frustrating as there are not enough beds. Hopefully management will prevent this practice in future.

No luxury, great reef
If you want luxury you wont find it here. If you want excellent food and drinks, not here either. What you will get is really beautiful reef, wild jungle-like vegetation, nice secluded spots on the beach, friendly staff that tries really hard to make your stay enjoyable.. We really enjoyed the island for its reef.. In the first day of snorkeing we saw two black tip sharks, two turtles and four eagle rays.. and more fish then anywhere. The corals are broken and bleached, but thats all of Maldives unfortunately.. The island has also flying foxes and coconut crabs.. When we were walking to the beach or to the hotel the gardeners gave our kids coconuts right from the palms and opened them up for them.. more than once.. really refreshing! The island is generally clean, but the buildings are run down, paint is peeling of the walls and fences etc.. The room was spacious, but basically equipped, everything we needed, though. The food was average, sometimes good, but the staff is really friendly.. Overall our experience was excellent, great value for money spent. If you like snorkeling and wild nature i highly recommend it, if you want luxurious water villas like you've seen on instagram photos, this island is not for you..

Very bad experience : would not recommend at all
I had a very bad experience with this resort, I wouldn’t recommend it at all. The staff at the reception was extremely unpleasant, and arrogant. The front desk manager asked us an extra $300 on our arrival, which was never mentioned on the website. We had even called the day before to make sure no extra fees would be added to the amount of money I had already paid, since I saw many tourists had already faced the same problem. The reception certified we would not have to add any extra fees. On our arrival, they denied everything. The front desk manager wouldn’t let me and my family enter the resort or access to our room. He made us wait in the reception room for 2 hours, and didn’t want to let us in, unless we paid $300 extra. As we didn’t want to, we had to call a private speed boat to end up on another local island, and find a new hotel. In short, our day was ruined, and along with that our family vacation. My family was extremely upset, and so was I since it was supposed to be a special family trip to the beautiful Maldives. As we didn’t stay in the resort, I do hope that will refund my money. As we didn’t stay in the resort, i can’t review the cleanliness, comfort and local area hence the neutral mark.

That is a 2.5 star hotel.
That was a bad experience. This hotel is at best 2.5 stars, but Hotels/Expedia market it as 4.5 stars (which is preposterous). We booked for 2 days, but left after 1 night. I feel bad for the staff, they were trying hard and as we learned to expect from other Maldivian hosts, they can always keep their smile. However the property is run down and there is nothing they can do. Another point of contention was the hotel charged us US$200 for arriving there through our own privately hired means. On the way out, we complained and they returned the money. Of course, charging for it in the first place set a bad tone to the visit.

The thing that makes this resort good is the staff who are friendly, efficient and very attentive especially the bar staff and waiters. The grounds are well maintained and the beach is clean and not overcrowded. The very best thing about Biyadhoo is the reef which is fantastic, excellent snorkelling with loads of fish including Sharks, Rays and Turtles

The island is gorgeous. The reef is lovely to snorkel. The rooms could use a remodel. The bathroom had gnats and was very damp, it really needed a fan. But you're not there for the bathroom. And it was sufficiently functional.

Immersa nel verde della vegetazione , un po'datata ma nel complesso soddisfacente considerando che tutto è importato e non facile da fare . Cibo buono e vario. Se dovessi tornare alle Maldive credo che valuterei di nuovo l'isola
