We were there for a week in Mid November 2016 for a vacation. We couldn't have asked for a better place to visit. It is an amazing resort which can be reached from Male international Airport by Sea plane in 35 mins. There was a ferry to receive us at the sea plane along with a Guest Relations Executive who...

I think the high point of this resort is the number and variety of colourful fishes and other animals you see right at the beach , from your rooms. So even when you are not snorkelling, you can still continue to see fishes. Transfer from the international airport to the resort was a breeze. We were welcomed at the resort... More

Site: well maintained. Paths and beach swept every day. Gardeners do a good job and keep the place looking good. Buildings well maintained. Thatch does need replacing on some buildings but saw work progressing with this and it did not affect the integrity of the buildings. Rooms: very good, cleaned very well twice a day and sheets changed regularly. Beds... More

I understand what others are saying about the rooms being a little tired, it could do with a re vamp. That said, it was clean and tidy and irrelevant if you consider how good the snorkelling and diving is here, we saw sharks, rays, eels, turtles and a whole host of small and large fish, all without having to go...

Just returned from a great 2nd visit to this lovely island . We were treated to a 'repeaters' candle lit dinner on the beach, which was out of this world. The snorkelling, weather and the food were fantastic . Special mention should go to Farouk - Pool attendant - who went out of his way to make our time perfect... More

We came back here after a perfect holiday 7 years ago and, although we had a wonderful time, the place has been allowed to become run down and is in need of investment and stronger management. The staff are lovely but there are rumours they are not being paid their service charge and standards are dropping. Some of the roofs... More

Recently returned from an 11-night break at Filitheyo, and am already making plans to return! The photos you'll see on TA, on the aaaResorts site and everywhere on the internet make the place look idyllic, and there's a reason for that; It is idyllic! We stayed on the north shore in semi-detached bungalows (low 40s) close to reef exit no.5.... More
