If you're looking for somewhere quiet, to get away from it all, then The Island is the place for you. There is a quiet pool area and a regular pool area, but to be honest, they were both as quiet and peaceful as each other. The fact that there are no children guarantees peace and relaxation.

My wife and I have just spent a week at The Island, celebrating our 25th wedding anniversary. After a stressful time at work this was a great place to unwind ! The weather was hot and the sky cloudless throughout the week. At a couples hotel you really notice the absence of little people; everything is calm and peaceful !... More

You could not fault the food, the cleanliness, the service, the facilities... It was just what we needed.We had a couple of days lounging by the pool and a few days exploring using the local... More

Spent a week here last month and it was excellent; the staff are friendly and helpful and the place is spotless day and night. I thought the buffet food in the restaurant was good personally and there was a good selection every night so even fussy eaters could find something! We went to The Taverna for a 5 course meal...

I have just returned from a week's stay at The Island, and my first thought on arrival was "what on earth are the negative reviews about"?! From the moment we arrived the standard of service was second to none. We arrived at about 10pm and were greeted by a lovely lady on reception who gave us a quick and helpful... More

Perfect retreat for a week off spent together. Both have busy lives and thought this much time off would be hard but the island is a perfect place to relax and to be looked after, We spent the first few days by the pool but the beach is right outside and spent the rest of the week there and in...

Wow, what a fantastic room, overlooking the sea. Beautiful bedroom and sumptuous bath shower room with mood lighting. The most polite friendly and accommodating staff, who were never too busy and always smiling and happy to help. Lovely choice of pools bars and beach area. Wished we'd had longer to experience more of the locality and Tavernas, a week was... More

Just returned from The Island Hotel and overall it was a great holiday. The staff are the best part of the hotel, always friendly and welcoming and by the end of the week Juliana our hostess even remembered our room number! The room was clean and always serviced to a high standard, a down side was that when you leave... More
