This resort is advertised as 4 star resort. what we encountered was different (please also refer to the photographs that illustrate the described below): - No warm or hot water durin 4 of 6 days. It was raining like hell and a hot shower after diving would have been appreciated. "Due to rain no hot water" was the conclusion from... More

This was out 10th visit to the Maldives and our 9 th island. Our priority is for a great reef that we can snorkel from the beach. We were not disappointed- the access to the drop off was clear and easy to navigate. The marine life was varied and plentifull. We swam with Mobulars for the first time ever- most... More

Booking for our first time in the Maldives we spent a long time agonising over all the different islands before picking Filitheyo - and we weren't disappointed. A 40 minute seaplane ride from Male, we arrived on the island to a friendly welcome. The service was both friendly and professional throughout our stay. The room (a semi-detached villa) was lovely,... More

This is my second time at Filitheyo in 2 years and there is a reason for that, it is paradise. The buffet food is 5 star and somehow the a la carte food is even better, the staff are very friendly and offer great service (Aminul and Dinesh even recognised me from the previous year as soon as they saw...

....not too big, not too small. Plenty of space to walk around the palm groves without losing the small island castaway feel. Genuine barefoot resort - I did not wear shoes for most of the 10 days. It is quiet and low key - not much by way of discos etc and that suited us. Main clientele - honeymooners and... More

Took my trip at end of Sept for 7 nights. The weather was a bit hit and miss, one day hot and sunny, the next heavy showers! As a solo female, I must say I felt safe whilst staying here. If you are prone to mosquito bites, please ensure you take insect repellent, cream to soothe any bites, anti-histamines &... More

This must be the best holiday ever. We booked the water villas and what an experience. Early morning swimming along with the beautiful fishes just out side out balcony . The pool is tiny by plenty. Food is Mind blowing. Srilankan waiters very friendly. Did night fishing that we thoroughly enjoyed. Evening buffet not so great.

Not much to add to many previous reviews. Stunning weather and beach. Great snorkelling, clean and warm ocean. Staff lovely and helpful. Food wonderful, good choice in every area. Night fishing trip was fun. Trip to adjacent island was not brilliant but broke up the week a bit. Superior villa was clean and comfy although never bug free.

This was our 4th visit to this resort and the second time we were robbed. Four years ago £100 was taken but we only discovered this after we had left the island. This time we kept details on all our financial transactions. They break into your room during the set evening meal. Only small items or amounts of cash are... More

Just got back from the Island, it is so beautiful. Arrived in Male and took the Sea Plane which landed beside a platoon where a boat was waiting. Once we arrived at the island we got a nice cold drink and a nice massage. Got shown to our Bungalow which was very nice, Bathroom was outside but covered. There is... More
