My husband and I have just returned from a week at The Island. From the time we arrived to the time we left , we were blown away by the hotel, location and the staff. Contemporary decor, very relaxed atmosphere . Our room was ok with sea view and balcony overlooking the main pool. We were amazed by how clean... More

If you are staying on the Island of Crete I would highly recommend the Island Hotel. We booked the hotel after seeing the excellent reviews on trip advisor thinking it sounds too good to be true! It wasn't! The staff at Thomson (who we booked it through) were incredibly helpful. The hotel is spotless and the staff are so helpful... More

Lovely hotel for couples just across the road from the beach, 2 swimming pools lots of activities to do also, good entertainment at night so relaxing, about a 1/2 hr walk to shops but lovely taverna next door. Rooms spotless cleaned everyday with fresh towels also. Lovely helpfull staff can't do enough for you.

Just returned from holiday at The Island and it was fantastic! Could not find fault with anything. The food, the staff, entertainment, and the roms etc. all the pools are lovely with plenty of sun beds and double beds with canopies. This is a couples only hotel and very peaceful. We are both 70 years young and most of the... More

Good choice of food BUT it was never hot. It was that bad I decided to go for breakfast when it opened at 07.30 - thinking that at least seeing that I'm first in for breakfast its going to be hot, I was wrong, it was yet again only warm. I did mention that the food was not hot on... More

We were at The Island at the begining of July. We booked at the last minute as we had cancelled a trip to Tunisia. The Greek Islands were therefore not at the top of our choices. We had been to Crete about 12 years previously and our hotel had been a bit too far out so our expectations were a... More

This really is a fantastic hotel in every aspect; helpful staff, well kept, large rooms and good choice of food at mealtimes. Every member of staff we encountered on our trip was exceptionally helpful: nothing felt like it was too much trouble. The room we stayed in was a garden room and although the balcony was small and didn't lead... More
