We were on Filitheyo for our honeymoon. The travel was excellent, smooth with absolutely no problems. We waited for the seaplane for 1 hour, but it was ok since we had the opportunity to use the free internet :-) We stayed in a water villa for 8 days on HB basis. We had the chance to do snorkeling all day long and enjoy the amazing sunsets from our deck. We had our snorkeling gear with us so we didnt have to hire. We had a couple of rainstorms which faded quickly, but the currents were very strong all day long. We visited Bilad'hoo island. It wasn't expensive so give it a try. We also went half day to abandoned Hamza island. It was a nice but quite expensive experience. We were attacked by blue bottle jellyfish while snorkeling and there was noone around to help us. Thank God it wasn't severe case.
The room was magnificent, very clean and quite large. The staff were very friendly except for the guy in the gift shop who was never in the mood to serve us (we went there 4 times).
The food was excellent. The chefs are doing a great job!!
The only remarks we have to make are:
-The wi-fi should be free for such a room rate
-The eggs tasted funny (raw and cooked) which probably caused me some intestine problems
-The rear of the island needs some cleaning
-Some rooms look like they need renovation
-We tried to tip in Euros but they wouldn't accept it. Have Dollars!
We had a great honeymoon in Filitheyo and we will never forget it.
