Out of the several reviews I have written here on Trip Advisor this one is proving to be the most difficult, so maybe everything will become clearer as I progress. We stayed on beautiful Filitheyo for 14 wonderful nights from the 20th June, now I know that the sceptics amongst you shy away from dates that involve travelling to the... More

Second visit to Filitheyo, this time travelling alone. Stayed in water bungalow which is just gorgeous. The sun loungers need a little repair though! Food really good, and my waiter was excellent, so polite and very attentive. Spa once again gorgeous, I had a few treatments. Dive centre. I did quite a few dives, all really good, and the instructors... More

We stayed in the water villas which were lovely - nice and peaceful in a beautiful setting. The island itself is also gorgeous and a really special place. Food was good if perhaps not that adventurous -... More

Filitheyo delivered and then some!! Reef is excellent! We've seen sharks, turtles and eagle rays on multiple ocasions. Even if you find the reef lacking (which I... More

We chose this beautiful island because of the reviews on the house reef as we are avid snorklers and were not dissappointed! We were snorkling one morning when we... More
