I wanted this to be a 10 but...
...sadly, I couldn't give it that. The island is beautiful, without a doubt, but sadly the facilities are very tired. We had quite a few storms whilst there so all trips were cancelled - however there was nothing else to do apart from sit in your room or go to reception and buy wi-fi. We took games and cards but had a limited supply. There was a dartboard in the bar, no darts. There was evening entertainment to look forward to, but apart from one evening none took place. We weren't fully-inclusive as this was not offered at booking but would have cost another $200 per day when we arrived. When ordering drinks it was clear the difference in measures for those on fully-inclusive and those not - much smaller if paying separately! Finally, the transfer was ridiculously expensive at almost $600 for x2 30 minute trips. In the first leg we had the boat to ourselves so this in some ways explains the high cost. On the return we shared with 7 locals, having to wait a long time for them without any communication as to what the delay was. I am confident they did not pay $100 per person for their crossing and feel rather that they were added to our return crossing instead. Our waiter was attentive and very sweet, the 'omelette man' always had a smile and a couple of bar staff were mostly cherry but apart from that I didn't feel we were made to feel special in any way - the resort was almost empty when we arrived so I thought it would be better - sadly I don't feel they were quite ready for us and would have come later if I had known this. We did enjoy ourselves and loved the island but feel it was very much down to us to do this.

Overall opinion
House reef was fantastic, Room boy was also first class the care taken in the room was first class. Food was also good. A lot of mosquitos and bugs.

Biyadhoo full board
The full board includes breakfast. lunch and dinner. The breakfast is a bit disappointing, we liked the lunch and dinner buffet. There was enough choices and variety. The room is spacious, clean, simple. The staff was helpful and smiling all the time. Small island, a very nice house reef with great sea life. The corals are unfortunately almost all dead, but this is the same everywhere you have tourists... The boat can ride until midnight to the resort which is great to avoid having to spend a night in male if you have a late arrival. (seaplan stops earlier) There is a diving center and you get a complimentary discovery dive with your stay. You can rent snorkling equipment, watersport equipment (canoe, windsurf) or spend your day at the beach bar. Nice place to have a peaceful break out of the radar (the reception offer pay wifi and a TV but do you really want to use any of those while there!?)

Relaxed Stay - Good House Reef for diving and snorkeling
It is quiet, relaxed resort. No TV and WIFI is chargeable, so you can spend quality time with spouse/family. Staff is very polite and helping nature. Rooms are bit old but comfortable and value for money. House reef is very good for snorkeling. Beach is good. I would recommend this to any one who loves diving/snorkeling/beach/relaxed stay.

Very happy stay, will come back!
We celebrate our honeymoon holiday in Biyadhoo. Must say had a lovely experience staying there. We were very well looked after. We had a memorable & comfortable stay. The staff was very warm and friendly. We had lots of fun here exploring the island around, the house reef and underwater at the island is the best part, we enjoyed it so much! Rooms were a bit outdated, but we don't mind at all as it's very comfortable and absolutely clean. Food quality was excellent. Enjoyed all our meals out, and great services from our waiter. All in all it is good value for money... Would definitely want to come back!!

My first time to Maldives and it's house reef makes me to return
The hotel's very own house reef won't disappoint the snorkeling enthusiast. The full board package would optimize your budget for longer stay in Maldives. Downside is only the cost of speedboat transfer which is way too high for shared transfer and wasted time for waiting others. Biyadhoo would be more choice able location if it could reduce the transfer rate.

Beautiful Place
We had wonderful time at Biyadhoo. The scenery is absolutele wonderful with crystal clear water and dense greenery. When the sun gets too hot you can enjoy the sea while sitting under the shades of trees. There are many sea creatures in the region and every time you go snorkeling and swimming you'll spot something new. The rooms are old but I personally think they look better in reality than in pictures. The staff are friendly. Food is good and they have special treatment for honeymooners. The guests here are regular visitors I think, they mostly come from Europe and Japan and want quiet relaxing time, which is totally different from noisy Chinesr guests. We would want come back to Biyadhoo again for its beautiful natural scenery.

Good location, lots of hidden charges.
Waiters are completely unnecessary. Coffee and tea must be in the self-service area. Drinking water should be free of charge. The dive shop personnel is incompetent and rude. There is no drinking water or rinse buckets on their boat.
