Last year me and my wife went to Vilamendhoo and now we are looking for a different resort in the Maldives. What I really liked is the snorkeling right off the beach, while my wife loved the infinity pool at the beautiful beach.
As far as I read, FIlitheyo can match both (or at least come close). However, I did see some negative reviews about FIlitheyo (mostly from a few years back) and since the Maldives are expensive, I wanted to see if you guys could tell me about the following at Filitheyo:
- I read that there could be waste from local islands at the beach. Is that occasionally or is it regularly?
- I also saw that some bungalows need a renovation, but I also read this was planned to happen. DOes anyone know how the bungalows are now? I know fili is not the most luxury resort, but we would like to know if it is run down or comparable to Vilamendhoo
- Any other things where Fili definitely falls short compared to Vilamendhoo? And are there other resorts that might be comparable? I looked at Reethi (also looks a bit run down), Angaga (no pool), Komandoo (much more expensive for the time we want to go), but Filitheyo looks like the best option, aside from the points mentioned.
Looking forward to your replies.
