Recently back from the Crete and the Island Hotel. We can highly recommend the hotel. The plus points are the friendly/helpful staff, good food ( traditional Greek and themed ). We particularly liked the walks to/from the main area as it has been designed to meander with planters/palms/small gardens around the corners. Well laid out. The beach was a disappointment... More

Good base for travelling around Crete, rooms nicely finished and provide basics, although only one iron in the whole of the hotel to hire. Drinks exceptionally expensive, luckily lots of great tavernas at the back of the hotel, which will charge you half the cost for the drinks with a good atmosphere. Tiny village setting without exchange facility, so make... More

My boyfriend and I have just returned from a week at The Island Hotel. This was our first experience of a 4* adult only hotel and what an amazing experience it has been. We stayed on a half board basis. Breakfast was plentiful and varied with an excellent mix of traditional Greek to some of the things we would more... More

Just back from a week staying here, we had a superb time. Hard to find fault really. Staff very friendly and helpfull. Our room, a suite, was fantastic. Clean, well furnished and presented and a very comfortable bed. Breakfast and evening meals in the main restaurant were excellent. So much choice and all decent quality. Didn't have a duff meal...

Nice rooms, good food, lovely weather. Very friendly hotel staff. Rooms were clean and well looked after. All the hotel looked clean. The only downside was lots of steps and the floors can be slippery when wet. Which was most mornings, as the floors were washed down. It's only half board but if you want lunch, there is a poolside... More

We had a beautiful week at the hotel. It was without a doubt the nicest place we have ever stayed. Near transfer from the airport and extremely clean. The hotel is large but it feels relatively quiet and relaxing and no way do you feel like you are squashed in en masse as it can feel at some hotels. Dinner... More

Service second to none, one of the most relaxing and tranquil settings that we have ever stayed in. Entertainments team were first class and all the hotel staff were really friendly and helpful. Restaurant is efficient with a good selection of food to cater for most tastes, the A La Carte evening was great, pity you couldn't do it more... More

Just arrived back from a relaxing 1 week stay at The Island hotel. We arrived after only a 30 minute transfer to a reception full of helpers to collect our baggage to take to our room and was a quick check in. We were given our room which was 960, quite a way out, but as we were with my... More

I'll start with the staff, we received brilliant service the minute we arrived to the minute we left. All were so friendly and helpful (not in that annoying over the top way). From the reception staff to the cleaners, they were all brilliant. The hotel has a great layout that is nicely decorated and always kept clean throughout. Our room... More
