I would recomend this holiday to everyone, fihalholi island was wonderfull, people, stuff, everythings was excelent. Me and my boyfriend went on 18th of august for 2 weeks with a firstchoice.
The flight was nice 10hours on a plane and 45 min with a speedboat. We get a entertainment on a plane and food as well light refreshments. I loved every min. of it.
When we get there we receive not very nice room, no aircondition at all,but if u pay extra like we did, u can get nice... (read more)

My husband & I travelled to Fiha for our 28th wedding anniversary - we were only 46 at the time, married young, worked v hard - previously went to Meeru for our 25th so we did compare!!!
The island and reef is fantastic - better than meeru we think - the food was average. We found most of the staff to be very good, but some of the bar staff seem to be out to make money out of the guests, so check your tabs very carefully. We were charged for a lot of drinks we didn't have, needless to say... (read more)

Fihalhoh Island Resort has adequate accomodation, food ok but not gourmet. Bars are pleasant and buffet restaurant ok. Generally had a great time but had to make own entertainment. Took a few movies with us films on my laptop. The reef is fantastic though, everything from manta rays & turtles to baby sharks & fabulous fish. House reef goes around much of the island and varies from a few feet to 30 metres, ideal for snorkeling, no need to dive. Beach is great and every room has its own... (read more)

The flight with First Choice was excellent, no problems from beginning to end. Excellent in flight entertainment. We had extra leg room seats which work out at only $3 an hour and it was so, so worth it. Transfers were excellent, although the speed boat ride at the end of a long flight was taxing.
Just to make you all aware, as it seems to be quite common practice. We were offered to go to another resort for 2 nights at the end of the holiday. We were told it was so that we could try out... (read more)

Fihalhohi island is very pretty, with a good barrier reef and lots of tropical fish.
Unfortunately the atmosphere wasn't as good as we thought.
Everyone we spoke to seemed to have some complaint.
The non-motorised sport were not included in the package as stated on the First Choice website.
The comfort rooms weren't quite so comfortable, a lot of the rooms like ours had a lot of humidity coming through the walls.
The food was very repetitive and not fresh at all, so quite a few people had... (read more)

My boyfriend and I travelled to the Fihalhohi Island Resort in the Maldives with First Choice Airways. We appreciated the longer leg room they offer compared to other tour operators. My boyfriend is 6ft 3", and he travelled well considering the flight was 10 hours.
Upon arriving at Male airport you collect your baggage and find your rep., and then wait outside a cafe. They sell drinks here but they can be a little pricey. We asked for 2 waters and we were given 4 being told that we'll need... (read more)

Two adults and one child aged 8 travelled to Fihalhohi Island Resort in the Maldives for two weeks from 17th May until 31st May 2006.
We flew with First Choice which was excellent, and we would find it hard to fly with anyone else now. Once we got to the Male airport we were last off the plane and last to get our hotel details off our rep, which meant more time in an air conditioned airport rather than the heat outside, so only had 5 minutes to wait for our speed boat transfer. This only... (read more)

We flew with First Choice Airlines from Manchester to Male, and the flight was brilliant. All the seats are leather and were big (2+3+2 across the aircraft), with a 33" seat pitch, so plenty of leg room. 7" TV screen on the back of the seat in front, 2 meals (1 being a pre-landing snack box). Though drinks were not free!
We quickly got through the airport when we landed as we were the only plane at that time, but had to wait about 20 minutes for the next flight before we all boarded... (read more)

We stayed at Fihalhohi from 08/03 - 22/03. This was our second visit to Fihalhohi. We booked and flew with First Choice. This was a much improved service from our flight in September 2005 with Monarch. Wider seats, bigger seat pitch, seat-back TV, infact exactly what they say on their website. We departed a few minutes late but made this time up enroute. Arrived at Male airport, queued to see our rep (only 15mins or so) and were soon on our way to Fihalhohi.
The transfer by boat took about... (read more)

Just come back from our 2 weeks holiday I have been to some lovely places in my time but none that have taken my breath away like Fihalhohi Island Resort, the sea life was spectacular we swam and snorkellled with rays, sharks, turtles, mantas and eels every type of fish you can think of, we would recomend doing the night snorklling rent out a torch from the dive centre, this was unbelievable all the turtles were sleeping the sharks and eels were out hunting, the large grouper fish follow the...

We have just come home from a two week stay at Fihalhohi from 11/09/05. The flight was awful. We booked extra legroom seats (costing £60 each) with Monarch, however as one of the seats was a window seat I was only able to extend my right leg due to there being a built in cupboard right where my left leg was. The flight going was slightly delayed as we missed our take off slot at Gatwick due to late passengers which was annoying as we had already been on the plane 2 hours as we came from... (read more)

My boyfriend and I went to Fihalhohi Island Resort in June/July 2005 for two weeks with First Choice holidays.
We flew with Monarch Airlines .if you're going to Fiha, don't! The amount of problems this airline manifested was ridiculous, including delays, inhumane seating room and actually flying us to Manchester to drop all of 5 passengers off before flying to Gatwick, our chosen airport, without informing us. This was a nice little surprise. Unfortunately I think that this... (read more)

When me and my partner were considering going to the Maldives for our holiday we did our best to search out reviews of islands by people who had been in June and July as this was the time we had planned to go.
Obviously this is the wet-hot monsoon and therefore the weather is a bit of a gamble, and so we were desperate to find out if it was a waste of a lot of money to go at this time or not.
Unfortunately the only reviews we found based around these months talked a lot about the... (read more)
