We stayed at the Island Hotel on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday nights recently. The first night we did not sleep because of the DJ, music, and talking at the Aqua inside/outside bar. Our corner suite was located on the sixth floor and all sounds and conversations could be heard. The suite was very nice but the three sets of sliding... More

My wife and I had a great experience. Started our stay out by pool area. Had great service and food by the pool. The barbecue was second to none. Really quaint pool and spa- relaxing. The pool bar had friendly/prompt service. Room was spacious and had a nice view of pool surrounding fashion island and the ocean in the distance.... More

Overall nice experience, but service not of a 5 diamond resort. We reserved 2 adjoining rooms - second room was not available until after 5 pm - requiring 4 people to get ready in one bathroom. The adjoining door was blocked by chairs and ottomans. There were cords crossing over the threshold, in which I tripped over once. Service at... More

We have stayed at the Island for 20 years...Although it is no longer a Four Seasons - Gone are the days when they brought Dove bars around to your pool lounge chair at 3pm followed by a spritz of Evian, but it is still a nice hotel. Linda, Matt and Steve worked very hard to take care of our concerns... More

Checked into Corner coastal suite and explained that we were allergic to feathers to a john at the front desk. 12:30 am spoke with Jamie in customer service who was very condescending and waited 30 minutes and had to call back again. Went to front desk to her Asst Manager who was equally condescending. Per Ron his manager is Lisa... More

The Island Hotel is now a nightclub. But the nice thing is they will turn down the music at 1 AM. So very kind of them. Stay at the Marriott or Ritz Carlton. When I called and asked about the music they said sorry and would not be turning it down. Would not move me to another room. I am... More

My wife and I have been staying at the Island Hotel for well over 15 years, when it was a Four Seasons. We stay here 3-4 times a year and it is still our go to hotel in the area. However, as of late, the service has been lacking and the rooms are showing their age. The new renovations are... More

This is a gorgeous hotel with possibly the best service I have ever encountered. I also had the single best massage of my life. But really? Pounding house music outside my window until after midnight? Even the 10,000 thread count pillow over my head and the softest cotton balls in the world in my ears couldn't begin to dim the... More

When I was there the hotel was undergoing major renovations: restaurants, gym, etc. So they gave a pass to the gym next door, and there are many restaurants at the near-by shopping center. So, overall, a decent stay. I recommend checking out the shopping center for meals and shopping.

A beautiful hotel with great service. The room was large with a huge bathroom. The new bar area was renovated but still roped off so it was a bit odd. Beautiful couches and sitting areas but they were all behind velvet ropes! Pool was closed one afternoon. Its funny ... the more luxurious the hotel the more that is not... More
