From the moment you walk in you feel relaxed, A lovely reception area spotlessly clean, Check in quick and easy, if not a little unfriendly !!! We had a garden view room past the relaxation pool at the top of the grounds which was a little walk away but we prefered that, made the room very quiet and not over... More

We have just returned from 10 wonderful days at the Island Hotel, true to the MD's statement it is the staff that make this place so special. The hotel is set on the sea front in Gouves, with a very nice sandy beach just across the road, where you have the use of the sun loungers "foc", together with the... More

Went for 9 days, amazing relaxing atmosphere. Would go again in a heartbeat. Staff are exceptional both Thompson and HOtel. Bank "Naked Stereo" i believe were amazing, will watch out for them in the future. Taverna Resturant was a memorable evening. would recommend to anyone. Also go out the front as well as the back, plenty on offer.

Turned up to get some well earned R&R and have to say it was a lovely stay. Are first room we were given wasn't right and when questioned Steve our rep resolved the situation straight away and the hotel staff we're really accommodating. The complex is clean and attention to detail sharp. Beach opposite the complex though I have to... More

Came here with a friend following a recommendation from a very good travel agent. It's one of the nicest hotels I've stayed in across Europe. The location is right on the beach front. Nice and quiet but within easy walk of a couple of tavernas and shops. The beach is clean and free to hotel guests. You can walk out... More

Just returned from a one week stay at this resort! Cannot fault the hotel...The only issue we had was with the iron! There is only one in the whole hotel so I would definitely recommend taking a travel iron. All the staff were amazing and made you feel so welcome, nothing was ever too much trouble. Would especially like to... More

My new husband and I went here for a week at the end of July for our honeymoon. We normally go for active holidays where we change locations a few time but we were definitely in need of proper relaxation! We could not have chosen better. As the hotel were aware it was our honeymoon we had one of the... More

I really wanted to give this hotel an excellent rating. The staff are very friendly, the buffet food is great, the position is excellent. The reason for marking it down is because the room air conditioning just could not cope with the hot weather. I reported it twice but nothing was done about it (the Thomson rep was hopeless too)....

Where to start! From the moment we arrived we fell in love with the white wash buildings, wooden furniture and a clean, modern vibe throughout the hotel! The service and staff are excellent and do everything to a high standard and nothing is too much for them! They work long hours, yet are still smiling and happy to help! There... More
