It’s always a bonus to book a hotel like this one and find out its better than you expected. The hotel is spotless, staff work very hard and are very friendly. The food on offer, (for this type of holiday), is some of the best we have ever had, good variety, lots of choice, very well presented, the head chef... More

There was a nice mix of all ages and nationalitys. We stayed in 202 right... More

A beautifully well-kept hotel, good if you're looking for some R&R and don't plan on exploring the island. It has the potential to be excellent, but a few areas let it down. The grounds have a five-star feel but overcrowding at the restaurant (often a 6-7 person long queue for fresh orange juice in the morning) and poor quality food... More

Wonderful two weeks at The Island and did not want to leave. The staff are so friendly and the location is perfect. The duo entertainment Hannah and Alex (Big City Swell) are very talented and also Adam for a good variety of activities - The 'A' Team. Jane

My boyfriend and I stayed at The Island at the end of June, we were a bit apprehensive at first because the pictures looked so amazing and we didn't want to be let down when we arrived, but oh my god. This hotel was absolutely outstanding from start to finish. I cannot praise it enough. The Staff were just wonderful,... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our 2 weeks here. The running of the hotel, all the staff were delightful and fun, and the service was impeccable. The choice of food in the restaurant was brilliant and especially so as we needed a gluten free diet which was no problem. We loved the light airy room and modern décor. The beds are a... More

Just returned back from an amazing week at The Island Hotel. We loved every minute of our stay. The hotel was gorgeous and in a beautiful setting. We particularly liked the restaurant setting, especially sat outside on an evening for sunset. The hotel is a great getaway to relax, but lively enough to find life if you want to. We... More
